Re: Newbie Build

That is Not a free wheel. I know it says free wheel and I can't explain why they don't call it a cassette. Perhaps it's some snobby nomenclature thing; freehub cassette, free wheel cassette, etc. Free wheels screw on, that has splines. I wasn't entirely sure if this was a cassette or freewheel at f...

Re: Newbie Build

I have electrified my Trek Marlin 5. I bought a 1500w 29er kit from Pasion Ebike on Aliexpress. Kit was about 450USD delivered to Australia. Comes with half throttle, pas, LCD3 and 18 fet KT controller that handles up to 14S and draws 40A peak. The rim is pretty heavy duty and they use 12G spokes w...

Re: Newbie Build

Don't make this common newbie mistake and think that you don't want or need PAS. It is included in this kit and there is something satisfying about having the motor engage when you start to pedal, and it's a great way to give your thumb a break. Even these low tech PAS systems work well on a low-po...

Re: Newbie Build

The Q100 and the Q11 are opposite ends of the spectrum, like trying to decide between a Neon and a Viper. That controller is huge! Max batt. discharge rate limits Current, that controller would be a space stealing waste of $$$. They are the same, a 26" tire fits a 26" rim. That package is rim only,...

Re: Newbie Build

You might want to look at the threads on the ebikeling geared motor kit. You can get their 500W motor kit for about the same price as the above, 26" wheel, 500W 22A controller, LED display with 3 speed PAS. https://www.amazon.com/EBIKELING-Waterproof-Electric-Bicycle-Conversion/dp/B07MG8CGK9/ref=sr...

Re: Newbie Build

Since that motor spins 201 rpm @ 36V, or about 15.5 mph with a 26" wheel, then it should be able to hit 20 mph @ 48 volts, so maybe just start with a 48 volt pack? Also, the controller for that kit is built into the bottle battery mount, so you're sort of locking yourself into using that battery, s...
