12S 5AH 50V (full charge)
BMC V4C rear hubmotor (speed winding)
20" Schwalbe Big Apple rear, 16" gumwall front
Lyen 12FET Controller
Cycle Analyst Large Screen direct plug w speed sensor
2 ebikes.ca torque arms with homemade torque struts
Top speed approx 25 mph, still accelerating a little, calibrated the wheel from measured diameter.
Power 1000w noticed so far when climbing
Climbing 10% did okay, not super fast, will have to measure better later.
Was reminded that I need a rearview mirror, forgot to install that.
Slight surging noticed if the load is very light, will have to try adjusting parameters or try an Xlyte analog controller.
I like the motor on the recumbent. It is really nice gliding along, and getting launched up to speed. There is a little gear noise, not loud but noticeable. It glides very nicely when the power is off. Can pedal to about 25 mph, so well matched.
The brakes seem decent. Coming down the 10% warmed the front rim and I could smell the pad rubber slightly since it is so far in front of me. The rear rim is painted and that brake works well but screeches a bit under some conditions.
There is a little play in the headset bearing. Need to figure out how to tighten this Aheadset.
Need to start thinking about a more permanent battery. Perhaps four 6S 8AH zippys in 12S 16AH?
