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

So I guess the crank arms are made of better cheese because there only seems to be chainring adaptors available?

Still waiting on some bits that AusPost are taking an age to deliver for my rear hub upgrade.

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

Those pedals look great!

MkII bike parts arrive next week. Meanwhile I am defeating petrol on all fronts, I have just removed the ICE from my old BMW. So stoked. BYE BYE PETROL!

Did the survey. Great info on the ACT situation. "Do you have an engraver?" As a matter of fact... :D

Re: Dillenger 250 watt

G'day Sam, thanks for that offer. I logged a call and was told I could buy a replacement or see if I could put it back together, which I don't mind since it was a crash and I didn't want to waste an almost new unit. I got some larger thread screws ($1 at specialty fasteners, slightly long but ok on ...

Yeah I'm all good, but I broke the battery carrier, it will be a simple repair. Pretty sore today.

Re: Dillenger 250 watt

I high sided hard on my bike with the same kit today. I was running the high setting on the PAS and giving it some good pedal, came to a corner on the bike path and thought to myself too late that there was sand on that corner. Slid out, flew off the bike and copped some major gravel rash. Hopped ba...

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

My boy took e-bike 1 on the commute today, did really well, found a great route with 150m of road in 11.5km, such is Canberra. He got a locker for the battery, locked the bike in the school rack and all was fine. He's keen to ride it again, so all good. Even more exciting for me is e-bike 2 is comin...

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

I agree on the chip concept, but it's not gonna happen soon because of the infrastructure required. It would have to happen at the manufacturer so the only way to remove was to destroy the bike frame. Oh the TiGr at least in the thin model is not so good BTW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kb8YoT9Q...

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

I'm going to test the theory on stealing as my son is going to ride it to school and lock it inside the school but it is a college (Yr 11 and 12 in Canberra is a college setup) so it's a little more open than a typical school with fencing etc. I think unless you had the same carrier already, or are ...

Maxxis Gypsy e-bike tyre on special in Oz

Just grabbed a pair of these: http://www.pushys.com.au/maxxis-gypsy-700x38c-electric-bike-road-tyre.html Also in 26. http://www.pushys.com.au/maxxis-gypsy-26x2-10-electric-bike-road-tyre.html Mine came with a reflective strip, will snap a pic when I fit them. Bummer they don't have the 26" in a 1.5.

Re: Dillenger Conversion Kit | 250w | 36v | 10Ah

The dillinger kit works really well on the PAS - incredible torque for the power rating of this system with lots of range and a simple install. The battery indicator I think is a basic voltmeter. When it reads lower, setting to a reduced level of assist and staying off the throttle to limit the pea...

Re: One Good marketing Plan is all we need

I'd agree that no one size fits all, and that will be the failure of the Storm for anyone thinking they would actually ride it 20mi. It's a toy, not a serious bike for serious transport. It's a matter of what you want the e-bike for. I think finding a good build from China and doing a bulk buy with ...

Re: Dillenger Conversion Kit | 250w | 36v | 10Ah

Battery is well above half charge after 18km this morning on PAS, with only a couple of 5 second throttle blips near the top of a couple of hills. Huge difference, will make it back home easily. Also noticed how easy and stable it is to ride with no hands, the weight and inertia in the front wheel m...

Re: Dillenger Conversion Kit | 250w | 36v | 10Ah

Can you tell I'm hooked? After a quick beer run assumptions seem correct that the dashboard indicator is adjusting according to what load is on the motor. Up the same hill just now without the throttle it stuck at 2/4 and didn't flash.

Thanks mate, looks like a top notch forum and I've had a few lurks in the past while working up to getting this whole thing happening.

Re: Dillenger Conversion Kit | 250w | 36v | 10Ah

Oh I forgot, my charger gets really hot too. The battery on throttle control without PAS on the first commute one way (18.8km) was down to two lights on the pack, a bit below half so I had to take the charger. Hopefully can get some more range with the PAS.

Re: Dillenger Conversion Kit | 250w | 36v | 10Ah

Awesome thread, gives me a lot of confidence in my purchase :) I got the newer basic kit with the bullet battery and controller in the base (like that controversial fat bike battery). It's 36v 8Ah but says actual voltage is 48. http://dillenger.com.au/shop/conversion-kits/250w-electric-bike-kit-li-i...

Re: Getting PAS sensor on the cranks

Same here with the sore wrist/elbow using the throttle, it only took one decent ride to realise. I'm yet to ride a good distance with the PAS so will see how it goes as far as controlling speed. Just down the bike path and round a few tight corners it seems to be quite subtle at low speeds, which I ...

Re: Getting PAS sensor on the cranks

Hey all, I just joined after getting myself a Dillenger 250w front wheel kit. At first I didn't fit the PAS but then deciding it would be good after reading it will get better range than controlling the throttle yourself I gave it a go. I had the same PAS problem, no room on the bottom bracket shaft...
