Re: MAC 8T or Direct Drive?

Hey mate. I was in the same mind as you when I was trying to decide which controller to get with my kit from em3ev, but ended up going with the 12 Fet 3077 for a few reasons. A 4110 based controller allowing a higher voltage is fairly unneccessary because the MAC doesn't deal well with many more vo...

Re: MAC 8T or Direct Drive?

I've been doing a bunch of reading about discharge rates of batteries and possible combinations etc. for when I want to go lipo later on... I believe the size of individual batteries allows you to customise the layout within the bike frame better, but I guess step 1 is to get my shit running. Also r...

Re: MAC 8T or Direct Drive?

Thanks for those calculations! Your numbers and reasoning makes sense. I didn't take into account the link between pulling amps at incline. When you say 9 FET, are you referring to : 9FET 30A (36-72V IRFB4110 ) or 9FET 30A (36-52V IRFB3077 )? As both fit into the current draw of your calculations? A...

Re: MAC 8T or Direct Drive?

I don't see why that wouldn't work, but if buying new, I'd definitely be shopping in 26" rather than 29er. 26" is already too big a wheel for hubmotors to perform best. But the 10t would make up for some of that. Which option are you agreeing to?? I'm on a mission to get this done as fast as I can ...

Re: MAC 8T or Direct Drive?

Thanks for the advice so far guys. Time for more questions =) The disc brake option : As this is a new build, would a cheapish 29er like the Avanti Montari 29.1 be suitable? They're under $500 here from the LBS brand new and comes with a basic disc brake kit and forged dropouts. Would you still reco...

Re: MAC 8T or Direct Drive?

Thanks neptronix, I actually read your build log while deciding to build a commuter. You mentioned that V brakes were woefully inadequate (which sorta effects my bike choice). Are you a 100% convert for disc brakes? I've got v brakes on my current roadie (carbon frame with full ultegra) and can stop...

Raged Focus Black Forest 29er MAC 10T 40A Build log!

Hey Everyone, Just after people's opinions on the motor for a commuter. The path is 14km each way (say 30km round trip) with *mostly* rolling hills/flat however there is 1 hill which is a steady incline for 1.5km. ( not sure on elevation, but its this stretch : https://www.google.com.au/maps/dir/-37...
