Re: P14 setting on SW-900 display

My ebikeling kit came with the sw900 display, and that 1-20 amp setting doesn't make a difference for me at all.

Re: Juicing Up Pictures

Perhaps. OTOH, you see businesses offering free wi-fi all over the place. The incentives don't always work out to the type of end that you describe. Given the low cost of providing an outlet, I don't see things becoming all that grim. But frankly, as I said I don't think that ebikes will be a big f...

No, just only using the BMS as "charge only".. And connect the main negative wire directly from battery to speed controller. I am aware, that I loose some safety. But thanks...

Hey guys, I thought I'd make an announcement about the updated JBD App and PC programming software. I know a few guys who don't update and then get issues with the newer Android versions and what not.

Re: Around the world on a solar ebike

Too bad recumbent bikes are still a billion dollars. LOL Keep an eye on Craigslist, LetGo, ect. for used recumbents. Most don't have suspension, but I was able to get this Optima Lynx for $280. Swapped out the wheels and got a front suspension fork to work! https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/viVsAm-...

Re: StefEbike for my wonderful disabled wife

Yes, he had a telescoping pole it was mounted on. I'm not sure if mounting it on my helmet would block out a lot of the downward view. If I'm going to look dorky anyway, I could raise it up a bit on a pole.

Re: StefEbike for my wonderful disabled wife

This is a sample of 360 video footage from the beginning of the year. We should have used the camera more! I think the format does a better job of feeling like you were there, since you can look wherever you want.

Re: My econo-e-bike

That regen howl isn't so bad; wind on that mic is pretty bad though :) Those sure are some steep hills! I mounted the cam on my helmet to avoid the vibrations. Also found the sample of 360 video from the beginning of this year. We should have used it more! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeLD6lq_2pY

That sounds like pretty good range! What speeds were you aiming for? There were a ton of bikes out, for what may be one of the last pleasant weekends of the year, and temps were around 65-70 degrees the whole way, with a little wind. You just need to lower your standards :P My last video was done wi...

Re: bluetooth BMS?

Basically the whole time, my meter showed that group 11's voltage was 4.165. I turned off the balancing right after that screenshot, since it was balancing 11 sometimes when it should have been balancing everything but 11, and the voltage reading went right back to 4.165.

Re: New 14s battery pack, US18650VTC6 vs NCR18650GA

Excellent. Let us know what your range turns out to be eventually :) I consider my 14s6p MJ1 packs to be 40 miles at 15-20mph, 20 miles at 30-35mph, and a bit more when used on the recumbent.
