Re: Hub Motor Kit

Voltage dictates the motor's running speed. The controller determines what range of voltage you can use with your kit; the motor itself has no voltage requirement. The controllers in those 48V kits will certainly run on 48V or 52V. I wouldn't expect them to work with higher or lower voltages than t...

Does any kind of power plant operate for 50 years without "major rebuilds and upgrades"? :?
True. Hydro probably the least maintenance?

Re: Which motor and battery for touring rinding with some hills

My biggest problem with mid drives has always been the drive train and maintenance. I had an older cyclone setup and it was great, but the maintenance drove me to hub motors. This might help https://www.sram.com/sram/mountain/family/ex1

Re: Which motor and battery for touring rinding with some hills

The xiongda being a two speed should be able to not produce a lot of heat as one is a low gear and the other is for higher speeds. My BBS01 sure is nice on some of the 6% grade hills I have here not far from Dogman.

Re: Which kit.. Stealth Geared hubs

So you have had bus drivers tell you that you can not put the bike on the rack. That sucks. I've never had an issue. Try to hide the motor the best you can, and put the battery in a triangle bag, or pannier bag. Most drivers would never have a clue. But you cant hide a mid drive very well can you. ...

Re: Which motor and battery for touring rinding with some hills

FWIW, that bikee is a mid drive. I never said a hub motor can't climb a hill. But I have done the tests, and fried the motors, exploring the real world weight, grade and length limitations of typical hub motors. I did this professionally, for a major e bike kit retailer I worked for. For a typical ...

I am a fan of tool packs, but not for long rides like touring. Mid drives are great, but chain maintenance sucks.

Ebikes cheaper?? You haven't been to a gas station or super market lately!!! Everything is going up. My little tax break doesn't cover the higher cost of gas, groceries and living!! Check out the price of razors next time you're shopping.
Yes sir!
