Not sure what I'd recommend for higher end ebike/middrive, but unfortunately for much more power, you may want to look at non torque sensing mid drives. I have not played with an unrestricted higher end ebike/mid drive much...echew wrote: ↑Jun 06 2018 9:10pmSo, just out of curiosity, what higher end motors could take a bit of thrashing?
I think the TSDZ2 is very good value for money but it's probably not quite what I was looking for in the end.
I really wanted to be able to put the same amount of effort in as I do on my manual bike but I wanted the motor to just make me go even faster. In reality what seems to happen is I can go roughly the same speed as I do on a manual but without having to make any effort.
So, on the flat, I can go 20mph/32kph sustainable pretty leisurely, but I have to work hard to get to 25-28mph/45kph, which is what the motor cuts off at on the high setting with the display. With a BBS02, I can go 25-28mph pretty leisurely, and If I really push it, I can hit 35mph. BBSHD - I can hit 45mph in the right conditions.
Basic Pedaling (and this is full suspension, mind you) I think I would be lucky to ever hit 20mph for a period of time... so I am happy with any help haha.
But anyway, thats just some numbers concerning other DIY mid drive options... I am not sure about yamaha/bosch/brose/etc... I more tinker with the DIY stuff... but I'm sure someone here could point you in the right direction if that doesn't give you any ideas
