Veego electric cargo bike???

Post by Hugh-Jassman » Mar 16, 2018 1:48 pm

this new cargo bike looked like a good deal untill I did a simulation of the motor. does any one know how to omake it perform better? other than mounting the motor to the side and using a large gear reduction.

I have not tryed simulating it with higher voltage, but that would really need a larger gear reduction, right?

looks like a child's toy.

better motor, sim says 24" so maybe a 9C clone or a mac if the hub is not too large for the rim which it probably isnt as I will be using a mxus 3kw in a 16" moto rim which I believe is 21" bicycle.

I had a thought that two of these motors would do the job,
not:

they said the rims are probably 406mm and the tires are 4inch so 24 is about right. looks like it would not be worth the effort. where as my custom bike is ready for a motor, but I will just need to rig a gear reduction.

You are not Pressing 'Simulate' after altering parameters and thus getting bogus results.

Here's the 2WD version with your proposed 400lb load... 26+mph:

Upgrading to a modest 25A controller shows the plain vanilla 1WD at 16mph up a 5% grade with a 400lb load.

With 25A controllers, the 2WD version does 24mph up a 5% grade.

IMO, cargo bikes need big hub motors, or mid drive, unless the cargo is to be a 150 pound rider and a lunchbox.

Thats just another cargo bike fail, using a small geared motor. The small wheel helps to be sure, but its not going to do well loaded up above 300 pounds total weight. Period.

That bike would rock with a mid drive though. Or even just a decent DD hubmotor, that could put out 1000w. With a motor able to put out 2000w and stay cool, it would be a "cargo bike" that does not fail.

Maybe just me, because of where I live. But if a cargo bike cant climb the rocky mountains loaded, its just for a person and his lunch.
