Re: TSDZ2 mid-drive vs Q100CST hub motor?

Thanks casainho, that's exactly the type feedback I was looking for! I will go for the TSDZ2 to replace my Q100CST motor. Before I place an order on pswpower (which seems to be the cheapest place to get it from), is there any difference between the 36v and 48v version (max power, efficiency/heat is...

Re: How to access and remove the battery of this ebike?

From what I can see that is the only way they got the battery in there so it is the only way to get it out. It is probable wedged in there pretty good so might take some doing to get it out. Disconnect all the wiring while labeling if they aren't obviously color matched and taking pictures to refer ...

Re: New build TSDZ2 not working

There is also the option of getting and installing a 52v controller, that is what I did and it works fine, however the battery bars on the display don't work properly but I installed a watt meter to keep track of things.

If you're in the US I believe FLX has them in stock.
More than buying from China but might be less hassle.

I saw that but the motor shown as a square taper bb whereas the M600 has a splined bb?

Qulbix did have the over drive speed cranks so maybe that provided an advantage.. wonder what were the other bikes in the higher power class??
If they have one in France I hope you can make it!

Re: Help me develop the perfect throttle

Might work for riding on the street but I don't ever see a hand grip type throttle ever being useful for off-road. A thumb throttle works because it is out of the way and using a grip shifter with a half grip and detents does seem to work fine for me at least as it only will move when I want it to. ...

Re: Japanese Mid Drive

Did you see a price? And 3.5kg is in there as far as other systems go. If they went to a mag case like Brose did it would help shed some of that. 700w may be considered weak here on endless sphere, and I have been on here for years and know this. However I find for mtb use an efficient 700w system w...

There is probably a thread on here about the Nidec system but my search function isn't working.... http://www.imajteknik.net/uploads/nidec-ebike-system.pdf This came across my screen today and led me to the mtb version. As a road type engine this will probably appeal to the roadies that think a litt...

Re: TongSheng Chainwheel offset - dropped chain

I took the stock adapter, after cutting off the arms, and mated it to a Bafang style offset 42t, the smallest that will fit over the reduction gear housing, by drilling some new holes in the adapter to match the chainring. Is this BBS02 or BBSHD chainring? How big is offset in mm? BBS is 9mm and HD...

Re: Throttle use with trigger shifters?

I use a 10spd. grip shift on the right with a thumb throttle directly inboard of it. Works fine. Don't have a front der. but that would remain the same anyway.

Re: Lime Bike battery fire

This:

"In 2015, a Brooklyn man made a four-month, 2,700-mile trek from New York to California on a Citibike — and incurred a $1,200 late fee for exceeding the service’s 45-minute time limit on rentals."

I know it wasn't an ebike but epic all the same. Way to go buddy!

Re: 18% regeneration?

I was ruminating on today's ride about this thread and how it relates to how I use my regen on a daily basis. My decision to go with a momentary switch instead of variable, although as I mentioned the CA allows for changing v, to begin with was because it was the simplest solution. I placed it on th...

Re: 18% regeneration?

EPLUS has 9 regen levels - unmatched by any other bike edrive out there, DIY or factory. Now that's just retarded. Ever heard of variable regen, like thru a second throttle? CAIII displays allow for variable regen via the throttle if you feel like working two things at once or can be set to differe...

Re: More E-bikes found in NON-ebike media

So who's to say it wasn't a terrorist act with a match and some lighter fluid by some disgruntled BART rider/pedestrian type? Personally I think eBike shares are dumb and asking for problems like this and fail to see how they can ever make any profit, which after all is the point eh?

Re: Three pin plug type?

I emailed Justin first because their 72v 2170 battery looked to have the same type plug. He said that there are 4-5 different ones out competing to take over the pin plug market and theirs is a bit different. Thus here I am.

Three pin plug type?

This is the plug my 2170 battery uses for charging. I can't find out what type in a search. Need one to set up a charge cord for my Satiator and don't want to cut the one off the 4a stock charger....

Thanks in advance!
