I bought one of the Edge1500 motors from LA Ebikes last month and am only now getting around to testing it in an ISO 559 wheel (driven by an ASI BAC2000 or Lyen MkII 12FET at 50 volts). When I'm done I'll post a review on my blog.
Some preliminary observations:
1) My motor has a Kv of 11.5, not the 9.4 that is advertised on LA Ebike's web page. I would have preferred a Kv closer to the advertised 9.4 or, if anything, a bit lower. Has anyone received a motor with a Kv closer to 9.4 or less?
2) My motor was supposed to come with a 10k NTC thermistor installed. But after I could get no signal from the sixth (white) wire on the Molex connector, I popped open the non-drive side of the motor and discovered that the white wire was cut at the outer insulation inside the motor--look near the tip of the screwdriver in this photo:
Fortunately, I have a supply of 10k NTC thermistors, so I installed my own using this wire and the Hall ground:
3) The axle stub on the drive side is a bit short when using a 7-speed freewheel. I'd like to have about 5-10mm more thread on that side.
4) Phase wires may be a bit thin (16ga.) and the wire assembly and weatherized connector gets warm and soft after testing hard starts and stops in the street for a few minutes (while the interior thermistor reads 40-45C). For the moment I'm retaining the convenient all-in-one connector that comes with the motor, but I may later remove it and splice my own wiring closer to the hub axle if I find that the stock wiring or connector remain unusually warm in normal use. I've already extended the stock wiring harness with another 70cm of 10 ga copper (for the phases) to the controller. The 10 ga portion remains cool. Only the stock portion of the wiring and the stock connector get warm.
