Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Installing brake switches? I'm starting to configure my tandem for a TDSZ2, and I want to install brake switches. What is the preferred way to wire then up using a 850C display, and a 6 pin out from the motor? I had to do that as well, and didn't want to cut any connector from the motor or the disp...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

https://sheldonbrown.com/gear-calc.html I know Sheldon's calculator. Very nice thing. Still it can only give a rough idea about what to expect. You need to ride the bike (especially with a motor) to see if the gearing works for your special demand. Especially if you never took much care for cadence...

Re: New

Interesting, can you link to the frame? HAHA, that frame is SUPER old. Got it for my 20th birthday i think. And I'm turning 50 now :lol: The bike was called Klein Mantra Comp. Made unique by a rear suspension system that only worked when you sat on the saddle, and not while pedaling standing. Well ...

Re: Klein Mantra rebuild / TSDZ2

Sure. You're right. Haven't thought about that. But different crank lenght means different power. That's also the reason i asked for a higher cadence version. You pedal much faster with shorter cranks. The red stuff is high temperature automotive silicone. K2 Hochtemperatur Silikon, Dichtmasse, Dich...

Re: Klein Mantra rebuild / TSDZ2

It rolls. I may swap the 52T front ring for the original 42T one, as it's geared too high to my feeling. 16T in the back. The Alfine 11 is super nix. Adds some drag and is NOT as easy to pedal as a "regular geared" setup, but being able to shift gears at a stand still and having an almost ...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I finished my bike today. Have the Alfine 11 installed, and a 52T front ring, 20T in the back. But this is to high geared. I will revert to the original 42T next and try that. Also have 16T, 18T and 23T for the back to try and get the optimal setup.

Re: bluetooth BMS?

No need for more current. The bleeding resistors are all that need to run current through the wires/connectors. And unfortunately they can't run more than that anyway.

Re: Klein Mantra rebuild / TSDZ2

Also ordered an Alfine 11 to get a straighter chain line, and enjoy 409% of bandwidth. Now I need to wait for the new spokes, as the wheel is already laced. Unfortunately the Alfine gear shifter and the XT 8100 lever don't really go together. I'm not sure if I can shift with it or need to 3D print s...

Re: Neematic - 20kW middrive bike

My guess on the voltage would be a legality thing ? From memory over 60 volts is considered 'high voltage' and requires extra certification for road use - assuming they are considering a road legal model in the future I thought the same. And it's the only reason I can think of as well. You need to ...

To be precise, they were missing the "h" in the kWh. IF we are talking SI units.

I'm still consider installing an IGH for a cleaner look. Power wise it's REALLY a pedelec. It supports nicely, and smoothly but it s...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I wish there was some "secret" button combination (that you can define by your own - combination of buttons and brake maybe) to unlock the unlimited mode so the bike is legal for everyone else. Also much better if you lend your bike to someone else and don't want them to speed around.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

You got a 100-150W head light??? I'll have to check that link. My LED lamps are 10-15W max and are more than enough for all riding.
So jokes aside: if the output of that thing is 2A@5V then it will be ~0.2A@50V. So no issue for any wire you got installed.

Re: New

The TSDZ2 doesn't really have the power to go beyond 25MPH on most bikes with 2" wide tires. Even w/o having tried it yet, but 750W peak is hardly enough to even reach 25mph (40km/h). From my other bikes i know it takes around 1kW to go that fast. But don't you think that gearing it a bit high...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Nothing beats the Rohloff when it comes to gear spread and Nm it can take.
Nexus Alfine 8 = 300%
Nexus Alfine 11 = 409%
Rohloff E14 = 526%

But also price wise it's unbeatable - just rough prices - you may get them a little cheaper
Nexus Alfine 8 = 140€
Nexus Alfine 11 = 300€
Rohloff E14 = 1.000€
