Re: Why no 240v off grid?

Micro-Inverters are are the latest way to go with a grid tied system.
Off grid probably a 48 v battery system to a inverter for the ac items you can't do without.
Although with 240 v ac coming from your panels you could power a battery charger
directly. ๐Ÿค”

Re: recommendation for DD hub motor for 20" wheel

Em3ev has bare hubs. I think. Not sure about direct drive though. I thought they did. Yescom seems popular.

Re: 9c hub in 26" rim super slow wind with temp sensor

I have 2 of these winds. Older ones. Love them . My 20 inch build runs 15 mph at 48 v. The 26 inches runs the same at 36v :bigthumb:

Are you using a sand filter? If you are using filters i would find a sand filter. Backflush like hell. Hit it hard with shock.

Re: First build, random questions about hub motors and overall build

There is a 16 inches magic pie hub setup in todays posts. Might be too fast winding though. I have old 9 continent , slow wind in 20 inch wheel. It only does 16mph at 48 v. Sounds like what you need.

Re: Tongsheng crank arms are for riders of height 5'9" - where can we get smaller cranks?

I ended up using 155mm. Bmx cranks on mine for pedal strike. Also good for bad knees. Most non powered riders prefer longer cranks for more leverage.

No hard trails for us. The trails and roads where we camp are on the edge of what is called the Flint Hills in Ks. There is alot of native stone. Large rocks in the road so you have to go slow and pick your way through or probably crash. Even when we tow in some places you have to straddle or drive ...
