Re: Where to buy Sturmey Archers internal hub?

At this time, I don't have the engineering specs for torque limits that you wondering about senor, however, considering that these hubs (SA 3 speeders) have been used for cargo bikes and pedicabs, etc, they should be relatively tough. I have a question in at SA with regard to your quirey, we'll see.

I don't know if you are aware of this company or not, from your searches in the S African area. The owners name is Wayne Dawson, the website is http://www.ebikesa.co.za/ . He has...

Yep, it was good to place a face along with an avatar and username!

No one had the same bike or e-assist set ups. The...

Re: EVS25 in Shenzhen ended, photos sent

Hey Dennis,

That red car is a GM EN-V, made in the GM factories in Shanghai, for the Asia demographic. Pretty obvious GM will make anything that will sell to a particular market, we just have to relentlessly demand the changes we need from them.

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the FYI's ! Is that gearbox for the Mac's a standard box but you have to find parts for, or is it something you are cobbling together from scratch?

Re: MAC-BMC and Transmagnetics motor efficiency testing

Hi Bill,

You said, "and avoid the losses of running power through the planetary gearbox (which I did not use for any of my tests),.

So, do you have gear boxes for these motors? Just curious what you may have found to use with them.
