The TSDZ2 spider is a standard 110 bcd and is suitable for two chainwheels. The problem larsottar assess is that the original chainwheel (not the spider) has a considerable offset inwards relative to the spider. This gives a large gap between the chainwheels when adding a second on the outside. He turned his second chainwheel to reduce the gap. You can also replace the original chainwheel. This will move the chain path a bit further out.
Sorry, but I don't understand you. The original spider should work well with two chainrings. Can't see how a custom spider will help you. You can use two standard 110 bcd chainrings. Though, maybe not too small inner chainring as the chain will probably interfere with the motor housing.ScooterMan101 wrote:So then , from larsottar's experience , and anyone else who wants to use standard FSA / RaceFace / Shimano , 2 Chainrings up front gearing system , they would need for best alignment , an aftermarket custom spider to use those two chainrings.
On my bike I use both of my front Chainrings since I live in a hilly/mountainous area,
so I have a strong interest in getting such a better spider designed/made, before I would buy this mid-drive.
I think that several reviews in this very thread describe that quite well. Check them out. But in general, the motor feels powerful but you have to provide force, especially uphill. It will not propel you by itself even in turbo mode. Torque sensing is good. Starts as soon as you pedal and stops when you stop. Power distribution is smooth.keithmac wrote:What are they like to ride?, how good is the torque sensing?.
I guess the A setting, which is called 'Power adjustment' in the user manual, is the peak current limit the motor will draw from the battery. You should be sure that your battery can deliver it before you fiddle with the setting. Batteries for RC cars etc. are usually marked with a C rating which tells you the peak current limit of the battery, but it doesn't seem that ebike batteries come with such info. (?) If your 8 Ah battery is a 2C, you should not use a setting above 16 A. At best your battery will be drained fast and get a shorter life, at worst your battery can be overheated and damaged.PhaenTa wrote:Also, increasing the A setting to 25 seems to provide a good boost on my motor. Even though the battery I use is rated at 8Ah I suppose the motor is using the burst of it.
No, the advertised effect is the nominal effect, not the peak. Confusing thing caused by the laws.PhaenTa wrote:It would certainly be advertised as more than 250W / 350W in that case
Yes, of course. I forgot to add that. But you know the marketing guys. They often operate at max levels for good numbers on paper. I think that if this motor delivered 1300W Max, or even 1000W that would be a part of its marketing.thowaa wrote: No, the advertised effect is the nominal effect, not the peak.

I have got different answers from two different dealers. One says the JAP/EUR setting will change the charset. The other says I shouldn't care about it, as it is for another model. Anyway, the conclusion is that this setting will probably not affect the motor performance.thowaa wrote:Btw: I wonder if the Japan vs Europe Mode setting has anything to do with the 350W vs 250W version of this motor? What are the ebike rules in Japan? Anyone who has the 350W version and can post the default settings? Or is it different hw in the two motor versions?
I have tried several ebikes including some with Bosch motor, but only for very short test runs.puregsr wrote:How does it compare to the Bosch system? ...

That is the common China-prices. The prices in Europe are higher. Some examples...leangains wrote:What is the price of this motor, ive seen anywhere from $280-350.
For people with health issues and/or special requirements there is only one good advice... Seek local dealers and try different bikes.leangains wrote:Would it be ideal for someone who has a bad knee, does the motor reduce force pedaling dramatically? As in keeping heart rate low with just minor force?
