Re: 750/1500 watt hubmotor

Just getting back to this particular project, been a busy summer so far so it's been on the back burner. Installing a suspension fork w/ disk mount on the frame with new headset. Put the hubmotor on the wheel stand yesterday and checked spoke tension, amazingly it seems very even and the wheel is ni...

Re: Warning to Yuba Owners - don't use large rotors

The caliper would not mount on the rear of my V3 with the 180 adapter but fit right on with the 160 adapter-I couldn't figure how the brake was going to mount with the enclosed adapters so I took it to one of my LBS where they have a big selection of adapters and we finally figured it out. I have re...

Re: Warning to Yuba Owners - don't use large rotors

I recall using 160 (40 mm) adapters on my Yuba V3 to install the 180 rotor on the back, BB7 brakeset.

Re: noob questions for commuting/kid hauling/cargo bike

My limited experience- BBSHD on a long tail Yuba cargo bike hauling 50 pound kid up fairly steep hills, 52V 13.5ah battery. My friend up the hill has BBS02 on a lighter cargo bike, I'm glad I got the bigger motor, helps keep the RPM's up on hills keeping the motor cooler. Will do 30mph on the flats ...

Re: 750/1500 watt hubmotor

I see the Infineon clones PowerVelocity has listed now available include 12F 4kW, if I purchase one of these I should be able to hook it up and interface easily with my IOS devices to tell it what level of amps, LVC, type of battery etc etc? The controller that came with the unit: IMG_2123.JPG IMG_2...

Re: 750/1500 watt hubmotor

Thanks I realized you weren't referring to the Hubsink in particular but I noticed it looked like an interesting unit when I looked at threads on heat sinks. Edit: went ahead and ordered the Hubsink and Statoraid from Ebike.ca, glad to support him. I see Powervelocity has 12 mosfet 50A controller fo...

Re: 750/1500 watt hubmotor

The Hubsink looks like a nice unit, is that a good way to go as far as a heat sink? I tried to find the Sabvoton 60A controller on Ebikes.ca but had trouble finding it, I'll keep looking. Like to hear any other recommendations of sinewave controllers that might be a nice fit for one of these hubs.

Thanks for the info, have you been running the controller that came with it? I'm curious what the number of windings is on the motor they sent you. I'll go ahead and read up on how to add ferofluid, that's the stuff that helps keep the thing cool isn't it?

Re: 750/1500 watt hubmotor

Yeah it will be interesting to see what a couple hundred bucks buys, mostly wanting to keep the internals happy and functional, the cheap rim I can replace with a quality beefy double wall if it appears problematic, not planning on doing any rock garden riding at this point, my neighborhood has some...

Thanks I noticed there was one single review hidden at the bottom of the page: "Review of 1500W 48V Rear Wheel Conversion kit. Here is what I wish I had known before purchasing this kit. 1. The motor is a standard 9C hub motor with disc brake and freewheel attachements. 2. The motor is laced in...

750/1500 watt hubmotor

Hi folks first post, been lurking and reading for quite a while, always a treasure trove of useful information. I already have a BBSHD w/ 52V Shark on a Yuba Cargo bike as my main transportation which has been a total workhorse and does pretty much anything I ask of it with the exception of off-road...
