Re: NEW BOLT ON TORQUE ARMS for IS disc caliper mnts 25$ shipped

Hi!
I've send you a private message about ordering two torque arms a couple of days ago.
Did you receive it?

Cheers

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

I can't seem to duplicate the battery issue. -How are you swapping batteries (hot swap with buttons or in Console Setup)? -Is it the main screen display that has the wrong voltage or the next (Electrical Stats) screen to the right? Battery voltage in the main screen and 'Electrical Stats' is correc...

Re: My Experience Converting an ICE Trike to a DD Hub Pedalec

Do you remember what size idler would work best for replacing the ICE one with the Ginko Cage? I misplaced my old ICE idler. I'm also not sure, if my old 'toothless' ICE idler is the same as yours, or the current ICE idler. You definitely need a idler cage with 8mm hole. Check the diameter of your ...

Re: My Experience Converting an ICE Trike to a DD Hub Pedale

Torque Arms Getting the Torque Arm on was harder than I thought. I originally got the TorqArm_V4 which mounts with two cable clamps onto the seatstay tube. But the ICE Trike doesn't have a seatstay tube, just some custom tubes with a bunch of seemingly weird protusions. At first I couldn't figure o...

Re: Re-engineering the Cycle Analyst V3

Have you ever thought the the Cycle Analyst V3 could be bettered? Oh yes! Especially the wire with the throttle, brake, temp and Aux JST-connectors is a weak point in the design. I rather have a single wire running to a small external 'junction box' somewhere else on my trike. I like your new CA ba...

So something has changed between CA3.01 and CA3.03, either hard- or softwarewise, that causes the PAS funktion to fail. Any idea? Didn't the stock setting of 'PAS direction polarity' in 'PAS Device Settings' changed from '5V-forward' to '5V-reverse' somewhere waaay back between firmware's? (old bug...

Still nowhere near as smooth and precise as in v3.1b10 (while in the setup menu, its all nice and smooth, even with a LowDeadband setting of 0.15V).

Hey Marc, can you tell us what you have for your actual min and max aux input values and what voltage you see on the aux preview screen as you rotate the potentiometer all the way from min to max? That should hopefully tell exactly what is going on. And I'm presuming that you only have an analog po...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Just did a firmware update to v3.1b20 with the Setup Utility v1.44 (macOS version) and think I found a bug. ;) Since I've updated fom v3.1b10, I used a new setup file. I've got a pot at AuxA, it controls PAS level (didn't change the threshold levels). Its a basicPAS (1wire, 12pol), set to autoPAS. P...

Re: The Cycle Satiator, universal charger for the enthusiast

I am amazed you can do 103V and 5A on that unit. I am thinking about buying either the 72V because it can do 36V to 84V Nominal Batteries, 103V 5A max. You can't. 103V x 5A = 515W Since the Satiator is a 360W charger, at 103V it will max out at 3.5A. Hence, charging at 5A is only possible up to 72V...

Re: The Cycle Satiator, universal charger for the enthusiast

Found a bug! ;)

When I double click on the v.1.019 Satiator Software Suite.app, the program will not open (OS-X 10.8.5).

If I double click right after that on the older v.1.014 Satiator Software Suite.app, the v.1.019 Satiator Software Suite.app opens.

Out of luck.
Doesn't change a bit.
(wraps the Phaserunner and puts it back in the box)

As long as this thing 'invents' new warnings and error messages every time I try it out, it doesn't go back into one of my rides. *sigh*

Re: The Cycle Satiator, universal charger for the enthusiast

At close to $500 CDN with the USB cable, taxes and shipping, I don't expect the charger to have bugs in it. Am I being too difficult? While I basically agree, I think its the 72V version of the Satiator that still got some hick-ups. Do you need the 72V version? The 48V version works fine and I've n...

Justin, thats a very nice feature build in the CAv3 from the get go!

I'll probably just change the 2 lead cable for the speedo pick-up of my CAv3 DPS to a 4 lead cable and hook-up a switch on it, to change screen brightness on the fly.
