Re: Please recommend best battery pack builders in UK / Europe"

Sorry it's taken so long to reply. I was going to use a cheap mountain bike. GT aggressor. It has a 3 x 8 freewheel. The kit came but I had a issue with the spindle. I fitted it but wasn't happy with the spacing so took it out. Unfortunately I don't know how but I knackered the thread. It would no l...

Re: Please recommend best battery pack builders in UK / Europe"

Many thanks again for your fantastic detailed reply. I've got some instructions on the controller. I can set the Battery current limit to 50-100% so 50% would be 30amps. There is also a setting for phase current limit! This also is between 50-100% what should I set that at? There is also a low volta...

Re: Recommended battery for 3000w cyclone and 60a programmable controller

I currently have a 52v 17.5 ah 30amp battery. I assume this wouldn't be suitable. D Why do you think it is not suitable? If it is becuase of the higher current limit of the controller than the battery, but the controller is programmable and you're never going to use that power anyway, just program ...

Re: Recommended battery for 3000w cyclone and 60a programmable controller

Thanks for the reply. I thought a 72v would be way too expensive. I currently have a 52v 17.5 ah 30amp battery. I assume this wouldn't be suitable. Do you have a link for a 72v battery that you would recommend. I live in UK.

Thanks

Recommended battery for 3000w cyclone and 60a programmable controller

Hi. I've just ordered the Cyclone 3000w motor. I don't think I will ever run it that high as I probably won't be getting a 72v battery. I need some buying advice on which battery to buy. I will have a programmable controller so have the opportunity to adjust some of the settings. What would be the m...

Re: Cyclone 3000w European supplier

I'm not sure if you understood what I was trying to say. Maybe I should rewrite my post. Basically if you live in Europe eg. UK and buy something in Europe. you don't have to pay customs duty. If I bought it from China or America I would have to pay tax or vat or both depending on cost of item. So I...

Re: Voilamart 1500w 26in rear hub install !

Thanks for everyone's comments. My biggest concern is the safety. I don't believe the frame I have is suitable. Shallow dropouts. Aluminium. And I'm quite heavy. I think I will look into getting a steel frame with deeper dropouts. I have some pics but I am having problems uploading them. I don't hav...

Re: Voilamart 1500w 26in rear hub install !

What frame are you using? I had no idea how difficult this was going to be. I guess experience plays a big part too. I guess getting the right kit too. I think the 1500w are on the bulkier side. So not as easy to fit.

Re: Voilamart 1500w 26in rear hub install !

Maybe if I could find another suitable frame. It seems most newer bikes now come with 700c 29ers so that is another issue. I need a large or XL frame because I'm very tall. I was going to change freewheel to 6 speed. I didn't want to file or stretch a aluminium frame!

Voilamart 1500w 26in rear hub install !

Hi. I'm having a number of issues with this install and thinking of scraping the idea altogether. Dropouts seem a little shallow. Not sure how to fit universal torque arm correctly. Freewheel tight against frame. Has anybody installed one and if so what frame did you use. Did you have any issues etc...

Freewheel issue

Hi. Please could you help. I've just bought a rear hub with a 7 gear free wheel. The small cog is very close to the dropout and frame. There is no room to insert washer. What are my options other than locking out that small cog. Could I replace the freewheel with another one. The original gearing is...
