Re: 1000w Front Hub Motor ebike Build Question(s)

Although I only have a throttle on my hub bikes it is how I operate it that makes the most sense for the way I ride. I am a long time cyclist and pedal 99% of the time but on the road I find the PAS systems don't always allow for me to regulate my input/cadence as I have grown used to over the years...

Re: 1000w Front Hub Motor ebike Build Question(s)

I have over 3 thousand miles on 1000w front hub motors and on flat ground maintaining speeds over 20 mph will require between 400-800w and you will be burning in the high teens wh/mi wise. If you have the complimentary pedal gear ratio to assist that is. Just riding a throttle will be more. Keep in ...

Re: TSDZ2 versions and throttle

Spend the $5. If you don't like it un plug it. I find mine infinitely useful for starting off and the odd blip to maintain momentum when pedaling is inconvenient.

Thanks for making the noise Rydon, I tried to create some myself but didn't get much feedback. The CAN Bus protocols allow for the use of an Ap based tuning system on the EU brands and it is a shame that Bafang isn't going this route also but instead going with proprietary diagnostic tools and login...

Nicely done Vivid guy. Looks like you are up to the task! Frame up builds usually take extra time but are worth it in the end. Looking forward to your updates and ride reports. There is a throttle on the left side of the bars Wayne but I am sure VG can say if it works or not. Did you ever hear back ...

Re: Would a 1500w Direct Drive Hub Get Me Up Short but Steep Hills on Full Suspension Bike without frying?

Looks like the price is right and my experience with a similar DD motor would say it is entirely possible to do as you suggest, especially if you are willing to assist pedaling and use low enough gearing so that you are in sync with the motor. At worst you may find the controller to be insufficient ...

Re: Surly Disc Trucker Build

So there you have it, a little tangent to the weekend is always fun. Original thought was 0.5Nm, now about 1Nm for Direct Drive, but you can give it just a hair on the throttle and overcome that drag, and that regen is good for not only braking and saving your pads, but also 1Wh/km back into the pa...

Re: Want advice on electrifying Kona Electric Ute

Get a BBSHD and a 52v Jumbo Shark pack, which should fit just fine mounted to the water cage mounts on your down tube. I would go with the throttle option as it will aid in getting started from a stop mostly. You are going to need a new front wheel anyway so make sure it is disc compatible so you ca...

I agree Wayne that sorting out the M600, which I think we both see the potential of as well as others, is the main goal. It is funny that Bafang doesn't seem interested in supporting it, but they really haven't been all that supportive of some of their other drives. I have saved this article for ove...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

The way I read it was that it ships with the throttle restricted to 20mph and PAS @28mph. That would work fine for me as I only use throttle in low speed situations but don't want to run up against any shut off with the PAS at 20mph like a typical Class 1 does. May be a few weeks before I pull the t...

Re: E-bike for commuting: Front hub motor or TSDZ2?

Hyvää Piävää, I use front hub motors for my drop bar/cross type bikes although they are more like 1000w systems using 52v batteries. I also use a TSDZ2 system on my MTB. For road use I prefer a front hub drive so that is what I would suggest based on my experience. IMG_1684.jpg IMG_1685.JPG The syst...
