Definitely interested in how you get on!tomjasz wrote:New one on the way. Cool. Thanks!
If it is coming via DHL (postal services) then this is pretty typical in my experience.tomjasz wrote:Still nothing. Tracking still shows no progress beyond the acceptance in Poland. Grrrrrrr

Sorry about the negative vibes here. I really don't mean to be so down on this device. It certainly has a place for some riders and riding styles.tomjasz wrote: I'm not as down on the device as Teslanv and it might have a place on OEM installs or slower old guy bikes.
I didn't worry about both brakes being linked since I NEVER brake using a single lever. Habits left over from PTW days. The only safe way to brake on a scooter and MC was using both levers at all times. It's locked into my muscle memory.eyebyesickle wrote:yea, that is the one i'm talking about.

I could be wrong but if you buy lectric's version of the BBS the gear sensor doesn't cause the annoying motor startup delay that tapping the brakes does. I thought they'd done some cool mod with Bafang to have a new connector into the controller and some new firmware. Okay, I'm reading between several lines with that so I could be very wrong about that but why else would they talk about 'delays' if you use it with a standard BBS?tomjasz wrote:I didn't worry about both brakes being linked since I NEVER brake using a single lever.

I wonder what Lectric did to incorporate.
If you have a look at their product page, the say this;tomjasz wrote:A number of us have tested them. The information is all in this thread. Yes Lectric is the USA distributor of the device. The first versions were sensitive to moisture. A problem eliminated in the final version. Yes it does stop the annoying brake tap, and replaces it with a device that does the same momentary stop when you shift. The greasiness works just like the brake tap. A momentary stop to the motor. But for $90. I have one. I like it. But it doesn't respond any different than a brake tap, rather it eliminates one small action. Convenient? Yes. Worth $90? The value is up to the user.
It's hard to sort out until someone reports on the Lectric version. They have renamed the BBS but the photos show 8Fun.
Keefe claims to be in the loop on some phase of the BBS update but is not forthcoming yet. Several of us find it odd that Bafang has not shown a 1000W version or a 100MM version to any other suppliers. At this stage it's all speculation.
To me that reads they have a modified BBS that has its own sensor port and doesn't get the delay like hitting the brakes on a normal BBS.It is highly recommended that a new shifter cable and housing is used along with a properly tuned rear derailleur for optimal performance.
Worn or damaged shifter cables, cable housing or an incorrectly adjusted derailleur can lead to decreased functionality.
Connects to the dedicated Gear Sensor cable that is included with all e-RAD 500w and 750w drive units.
Tuned specifically for e-RAD Mid Drive Kits.
Compatible with Bafang BBS Motors (BBS01 and BBS02)
When used with 8FUN Bafang BBS Motors, there will be an increased delay when the motor resumes operation after shifting
Gear Sensor will have to connect to one of the two e-brake connectors leaving only one connector left for an e-brake lever or sensor.
