I like vector and really enjoy my vector/adaptto bike, but I was intrigued by powervelocity's inexpensive Bluetooth enabled sine wave controllers. And as luck would have it he lives near my dad in Sacramento California so I stopped by to say hello, and take his controller (and entire bike)for a test drive.
We met up at a park near his place, I was wondering how I'd know it's him when his fully setup ebike rides up silently! It's fully tricked out and when i took it for a spin yup, that's some power.
The throttle response is much sharper than the adaptto, which is fun if not entirely safe, but it's fully configurable in software via an app and Bluetooth, and after dialing it back a bit it was quite smooth with plenty of power. Felt much quicker off the line than my adaptto mini.
I was also picking up a moped front wheel, and went back to Val's lab to pick it up. Very cool little shop with many living and dead controllers, and all the bits to upgrade them, and some truly awesome motors! There was a beast laced to a 19" rim that's good for 20kw, wish I could remember the model of it.
Long story short I loved the controller and am picking one up when it's ready. Adaptto makes great controllers and software, but I can't afford 2, and support was a bit tricky when you have to mail internationally. If you want power and are living in the USA this is a great controller option!
Wow I've been here 7 years! had a kid and took a break. Back on a Vector Ebike just for fun.
Broken bike and electric bits everywhere. Sometimes it's a bike and I ride it.
Broken too much crap. pulled 3kw from a 350 watt ebike kit motor, pulled 100c out of HK lipo. much melted wire and plastic. Amazed at the progress this group has made in ebiking.
