Re: 350w Bafang CST kit from eMax on 90’s Mongoose MTB

I plugged your data into the Ebike CA simulator and the results show that you have a 201 rpm @ 36 V motor. I looked up the codes for the motors and it seems a code 10 would have been the faster one and I have got a code 15. I have 180m altitude gain over 18km with 5 short climbs and I pedal fairly ...

Re: 350w Bafang CST kit from eMax on 90’s Mongoose MTB

Thanks for the info motomech, I have to say if I was told you can have a motor that does ~32km top speed, or one that does ~40km top speed I definitely would have chosen the faster one. As you say it kind of makes the Cycle Analyst a bit worthless, and I can pedal under my own steam at over 32km on ...

350w Bafang CST kit from eMax on 90’s Mongoose MTB

The Build First up, you can see my first build here to compare notes when I refer to it in this post. This is my second build, and being totally convinced by the first that this is the best way to get around especially here in Canberra, I put together a plan. At first the plan was for me and my son...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Yeah only plugged in the ca3 connector from the grinfineon and nothing else. Will get an email off to you shortly.

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

I checked the diode and it was dead, I tried the short circuit with a bit of wire and plugged it in, it switched on momentarily then something went pop. I've put it back together, will get another one with the right pas sensor and start again and send this one off to be repaired. :(

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Now that you mentioned it and I looked through the manual, I found the section about the PAS and the 10v pin which is exclusive for the THUN sensor and doesn't have a fuse, I can guess what I've done wrong. Someone who knows will confirm it I'm sure. It looks like I needed to make up a 3 pin JST con...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

My system is 48v, the pack was putting about about 53v. I have a DP system and a Grinfineon controller so I can't power it off another source.

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

CRAP! I blew it. I got my conbag, and my crimper, I had everything hooked up nicely, and working, and did the PAS last. This is where it blew. I have a basic PAS, it has red, black and blue wires. I routed them as: red > white (pin 1 10v) black > black (pin 2 gnd) blue > blue (pin 3 dir) I'm guessin...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

I'm guessing that the ebrake and throttle connectors on the Grinfineon are are not used because throttle and brakes will connect to the CA.

I've got the contact details for the local guy who has lots of experience now so it should be a breeze to connect it all up.

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Great stuff, thanks for the fast answers, I will get the one with the pickup so it can't go wrong. I'll check the existing wiring tonight, if it is a 6 pin I will definitely need to change that connector so will order the bag of connectors and I think a local guy here has a crimper as he has done a ...

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

Hi all, I have a Bafang CST 48v 350w rear hub motor and 11.6Ah LiPo dolphin battery and am getting a Cycle Analyst CA3 and Grinfineon 25A controller so I can pump some more watts in and get a bit better top speed, plus get more information on what the system is doing. My main question at this stage ...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

Hi Scotty, I found with the frame battery I also lost speed as the charge went down - related to the drop in volts and the discharge curve. That's why I went down the LiFePo chemistry route - the discharge curve is much much flatter - something I need as my hills are at either end of my commute, no...

Re: 250w Dillenger basic front hub kit on Holstar hybrid

On the battery life in cold weather: My son managed to run his 8Ah battery out the other day (about 90% charge at a guess, all LEDS on battery were lit, 24km trip) and he said it rapidly dropped below half about 3km from home on the way in, it was -2.2c with apparent -4.3c! On the way home he had it...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

Oh I've put down ~80km on PAS 8/9 but with a 1 hour squirt of charge after 40km because I did a couple of small trips to add the 10 k over my normal commute. I ran 9 for over 50% of the both legs today (20km). I'm pretty confident that on PAS 7/8 I can easily get two commutes or 72km. Battery indica...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

Hi Michael, that looks like a proper stealthy road rocket, congrats. Indeedy! This morning I learned why hub motors don't compete with mid drive for overall speed. A dude older (appeared mid 50's or more) and seemingly not as strong as me cruised past me on the flat, the motor kept pushing him alon...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

I gotta say, I've noticed my little 26" wheels on the MTB compared to the hybrid which feel massive comparatively. The 29er MTB would be the ultimate commuter.

I'd be in for one of those meters too with connectors fitted by you. Maybe won't even permanent mount, just to geek out a bit now and then, see how much more power I am putting in as I get fitter :)

After this morning arriving with 3/4, this arvo it quickly dropped to 2/4 (about 5 km in), then I got it down to 1/4 on display for about the last 5km (mostly mellow climb from the river up to home) on 7 PAS and dropped it to 6 for the last 3 km, on arriving home it rose back up to 2/4 display.

Full build review and pics coming soon. I arrived home with 3/4 indicators on the display and battery! I almost did...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

Got a quick question on the chain staying on too. I think I am running a 48 tooth on the new rig I'm building and found I don't have room on the bars for the front shifter. I plan to just remove the lot, was thinking about a chain guide but it seems unnecessary given many bikes are fitting the mid d...
