Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

I found this item, which appears to be what we need for the Gear shift sensing as it connects to the existing VLCD5 brake sensor sockets, but it doesn't appear to use 5v source. Unsure how it can work without the 5v. It also has brake sensors suitable for hydraulic brakes... https://www.aliexpress....

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

...... Also does the motor heat up more after installing the OSF or does that happen with the stock firmware as well. When I have ridden the bike I feel the motor - and while it is warm it has never been unreasonable hot. That was after riding at speed and tour modes and occasionally turbo up hills...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

Thanks Emma. Good advice!! Just a quick question re the gear sensor - do you have it by the shifted on the handle bars or by the hub? I guess to go to the hub you need an extension cable. Also does the motor heat up more after installing the OSF or does that happen with the stock firmware as well. W...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

Thanks Emma. I think I will order one then 😊 I am just running the stock firmware but think we'll go to the open source firmware in time. What has you experience been with the OSF?

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

Thanks, Does anyone know what the wiring diagram would be to wire the shift sensor to the brake sensor and do they use the same type signal source? I have a Shimano 11 speed IGH and find that I need to stop pedalling for a second or so to allow the hub to change gears. This can cause a loss of mome...

Re: Tsdz2 firmware open source adapted to vlcd5, vlcd6 and xh18

Hi All. I notice there are 48v and 52v versions of this motor available on Aliexpress. Is the motor different or is it just looked for use with either battery in the firmware? There is about a $100 difference between the 48v and the 52v versions.

Hi. Do you have any experience with a 30 or 36t chainring on an 8 speed cassette on a yuba Mundo? Or running a 40t sprocket on the cassette - I'm trying to make sure I can climb steep hills with a couple of kids on the back. Thanks

Hi All. I have a TSDZ2 question. I am thinking of buying one of these for my wife's Gazelle. I notice there are a number of versions of the motor 500x, 750w - 48v, 52v etc. I want to run it off a 52v battery so my wife and I can swap batteries if needs be. Does the 48v model motor run on a 52v batte...

Re: Can only set BBSHD to 28amps max?

Thanks Fechter!!! I was thinking it must have been firmware - but it is hard to find much info about firmware updates and what they do. Also I am new to all this stuff so forgive me - but what is a/the shunt? Not that I am interested in modifying it :D

Can only set BBSHD to 28amps max?

Hi. I just got a BBSHD with 52v 17.5amps. I am trying to find the best settings for the bike/motor. All the advise I have seen says run the BBSHD at 30amps max but for some reason mine seens to be limited to 28amps max. Is this a firmware issue? and what difference is there between 30amps and 28amps...

Re: Mid drive for Yuba Mundo V5

Thank you so much - this is really helpful. At the moment I am thinking of getting the tongsheng tsdz2 750w - and if I find that it is not powerful enough I can put it on my wife's bike and buy the BBSHD. I still want to have the cycle experience and have read that the BBSHD is more like a motorbike...
