Re: Struggling with BMSBATTERY motors

Once I installed the motor in the bike, I don't have that rubbing noise anymore. That rubbing noise happened during testing, it was on a stand and was not bolted down. It's reassuring to hear that headways are good batteries. The controller is a 35amp Ku123. I am going to find a long stretch of flat...

Re: Struggling with BMSBATTERY motors

I finished my built and put in 300 km so far commuting to work. I did not need to go the two wheel drive route as was plant. I am feather weight. One motor is powerful enough to assist me up those hills doing 35kph. It will run out of steam at 40kph on the flat probably because the Headway battery d...

Hi tronne,
How is your conversion holding up? What does your CST sound like?

Re: Struggling with BMSBATTERY motors

Hi d8veh, Got my order from BMSBattery but they sent me the worng controller. I asked for S12S they sent S12P. 1) The S12P has no hall sensor wires, what could I do to make it work for CST and BPM motors? 2) I tested the CST with KU123 at 48v no load, sounds like metal is rubbing inside, what could ...

Re: Converting a hubmotor to a middrivemotor

That could be challenging, I don't know anybody with a lathe. So if I understand it correctly it is not to replace the existing shaft with a new one just grind it down. I will open it and see what it looks like. I will definitely need some parts from you crossbreak. Is this process reversible?

Re: Converting a hubmotor to a middrivemotor

Hi Crossbreak, I followed your thread closely. I like this idea because I can match the cadence speed. I have a BPM2 48v500w(328 rpm) motor that I want to convert to middrive but I don't have many tools. Could you list what tools are needed to complete this convertion? Could you also comment on the ...

Re: Struggling with BMSBATTERY motors

Thanks d8veh and dnmun. I have an earlier version of the GNG 48v450w brushed geared mid drive kit. The torque was amazing for going up hills because it utilized the seven speed of the bike. However, three reasons I stop using it because bearings on freewheel crank came loose all the time, cadence sp...

Re: New Bafang Crank-drives

I have a 7 speed beach curiser.

Does this BBS02 fit the one piece crank bottom bracket beach curiser?
Can a bottom bracket conversion kit make it work?

Re: Struggling with BMSBATTERY motors

Hi d8veh, Could you clarify: 1) CST can use 7 speed cassette and BPM2 can not use 7 speed cassette but only single speed? (why do they say CST has cassette, BPM2 does Not?) 2) CST can not over volt to 48v? (my battery pack is 48v) 3) CST is a better motor then BPM2 in what ways? (is it the gear set,...

Re: CX 450 Starting From Scratch

This cx 450 looks way comfortable then my hard tail mid-drive mtb and lots of possibility came to mind. I google and can't find where to buy one. Amazon is out of stock. Do you know who else is selling this bike?

gng freewheel crank worn out after 200km

Hi Everyone, I spoke too soon about how great my gngebike mid-drive ebike runs. I still like this mid-drive set up, but after only 200km, the freewheel in the crank worn out and all the ball bearing came loose. I think this freewheel is not of quality. You can't be changing freewheel every 200km. Do...
