Re: Is a leisurely pedal cadence possible going 25 mph on an ebike?

Thanks, Markz and Amberwolf. Sounds like I should stick with rear hub, I appreciate the advice. It also seems like, given my 50rpm at 25 mph wish, I really should just stick with the planetary geared crankset like the schlumpf high speed drive and a 30T crankset or so. I don't have the welding skill...

Re: Is a leisurely pedal cadence possible going 25 mph on an ebike?

Okay, picking this back up again as I've got a little money back in my pocket :D . So I think the jerkshaft might be too much work on my end. But I think I might have something that could work. I'm inheriting a Surly Cross Check for the donor bike. So If I was to get a sturmey archer 3 speed on the ...

Re: Is a leisurely pedal cadence possible going 25 mph on an ebike?

Thanks, Amberwolf. So is there a difference between what you're saying with the IGH in the front and an Internally Geared Crankshaft like the Patterson, Efneo or Schlumpf? The Patterson might be exactly what I'm looking for, provided I can put a 42T gear on it. Looks the the biggest they sell on the...

Re: Is a leisurely pedal cadence possible going 25 mph on an ebike?

Okay, so the TDCM is 18T sprocket and the gear ratio is .64, so that gets me to something that behaves like an 11T, right? Is there a way to get a smaller sprocket or is that a bad idea? I see what your saying about possibly using a mid-drive motor and using the IGH without a rear hub. That might ma...

Re: Is a leisurely pedal cadence possible going 25 mph on an ebike?

Wow, thanks everyone! @amberwolf I'm interested in the IGH or the schlumpfdrive solution. For the IGH in the rear hub motor idea, what are examples of the kind of IGHs I might be able to use?

Is a leisurely pedal cadence possible going 25 mph on an ebike?

I've been fretting over my ebike decision for a while now. I tested an aventon pace 500 bike with a 170mm 42T crankset and an 11-32 cassette. I found that, once I got up to 25 mph, I had to have a very high pedal cadence to contribute to the power of the motor. In my dream world, I would pedal with ...

Re: Building my first bike.

Thanks, everyone! So helpful! @E-HP, I am going the torque sensing route. But a quick question, if I use torque sensing and I get up to 25 mph, will I encounter resistance enough to contribute to the forward momentum of the bike? When I was on the aventon with cadence sensor, once I got up to 25 mph...

Building my first bike.

I've been lurking and researching about ebikes for about a week. I'm looking to build or buy an ebike. I don't own a bike. Here are my specs. Purpose: Daily Commute so I can ditch my car commute for environmental reasons Distance: 12 Miles each way, can charge at work but would love something that c...
