Guys, I just bought this e-Bike from Amazon for 650USD shipped (I know, I know.... Amazon and eBay
It's the “ANCHEER Folding Electric Bike with 36V 8AH Removable Lithium-Ion Battery Lightweight Electric City Bike with 250W Motor and Battery Charger” https://www.amazon.com/ANCHEER-Electric ... ds=ancheer
We won’t lie to each other, this has nothing to do with a top of the line torque sensing mid-drive Bosch e-bike, but what that heck with that, I won’t spend so much, especially on a low power commuter ride in the crazy city I currently live in... I bought this bike because I needed a quick fix : I needed an electrified ride while I’m in this crowded city were eBikes are illegal (COPS do eBike Crack-Downs on eBikes here). I won’t name the city, but my old Arrow ebike that I had bought for 600$ off craigslist got seized by the cop (got a 500$ ticket and they seized it). Needless to say, I won’t invest 3000$ on an e-bike until I’m out of this oppressed city with cops taking any possible opportunity to suck the money out of your pockets like greedy little bloodsuckers that will do anything they can to restrict you from having a little fun in life.
Anyway, the bike is cheap but works and the battery, hub and controller are rather inconspicuous, so "sort of stealthy".
Here are pics:
Anyways, the bike works fine, but I'd like it to go at tad faster since I'd like to be able to commute at 30-35-38 kph (goal 40 kph top speed on long flat streatch no head wind). I'm 150lbs, and 5’10’’. The whole bike is 45 lbs I think.
I did not measure the top speed yet, but I think I'm doing around 25-26 kph based on my preview ebike riding experience (arrow ebike and BBSHD 52V on 700C 46T 14-34T back then in Canada).
Here's my question : How much can I safely overclock the system and how would you do it ?
I’ll attempt to give as much specs I can, but most of the component I extensively searched the web to get specs, but they are Chinese generic parts. Here's what I found (see posts below).
I'd rather up the volts than the amps. I'm aware I'll need a new battery (I'll go with a backpack battery !)
On the stock model, the rear freewheel is Shimano Tourney 7Spd 14-28T : 28T, 24T, 22T, 20T, 18T, 16T and 14T, and there are 12 splines inside the freewheel hole. Removal of this specific freewheel would require a FR-1 removal tool.
In the front, there is a 48T chainring that forms one single piece with the right pedal arm, which fits on a square tapered spindle.
