Good target for me to. 35-40kmh as quickly as possible. Speed that does not really need much power to sustain it. Reached so quickly the motor has no time to heat. In europe it appears a bpm is the best choice for this (or something similar). To get any more power off the line, you need twice the motor and battery weight before any gain is seen.Kiriakos GR wrote:Conversion Link for Europeans and rest of the world.

Nowadays that I have driving experience regarding requirements which an ebike need to have so to blend with regular traffic successfully, I am aware that one Mid-drive capable to accelerate from dead stop to 35-40Km in 5 seconds it would be named as ideal.
Remember that like I posted above, it's hard to know your preference if you arent' allowed to ride faster than a certain speed--you might prefer it if you try it long enough to get used to it. I can't, here, so I can't know if I'd prefer it or not.friendly1uk wrote:I hope 15.5mph bike users are not being forced to say 15-20 when they themselves would be comfortable going quicker. It is more the users prefeerance I'm interested in, not their bikes competency.
DD motors don't only serve speed-demons. THey also serve those that overheat or break the gears and clutches in geared motors due to heavy cargo loads, frequent complete stops and starts, etc. And those that don't like the noise of the gears and/or the whine of the fast motor inside. People like me.I have spent a long time trying to justify DD motors. They never even come close though. Only serving people that want to go fast. Hence asking how fast people like to go.
Yes, but I still have no idea what the gears inside it are made of (requires a special tool to disassemble, which I've not yet made, and Fusin won't show hte inside or tell anyone about it, or sell the tool to anyone but dealers).friendly1uk wrote:Have you tried geared hubs in the last couple of years?
I'm surprised the gears didn't pool in the bottom of the case.
I think what you mean is that 'the ones you tried', 'the way you tried them', 'back when you tried them' - broke.amberwolf wrote:I thought geared motors would be better for my needs because of all the reasons others had liked them, but for me they don't work becuase they break: Either they get so hot inside the halls stop working (temporarily or permanently), or the gear teeth start pulling out at the roots, or the clutch disc actually cracks thru.
You Sir, Are Confused. Even the tour de france riders don't do 30mph as an average speed, and they have the roads closed off for them. While we are on much more dangerous routes with a lot more weight to stop. Why even make the comparison. The gap between them is over 100% making it a mute point.TotalConfusion wrote:Also whats the go with "30mph+ but honestly its a bicycle" crap?
It doesn't look like that to me: The two resuls at the top of the poll are the lowest ones, and one has zero votes and the other only two, so neither could have "picked up 3 votes". So I don't understand that part at all.friendly1uk wrote:Does anyone else think the top two speed groups picked up 3 votes each overnight
Code: Select all
Under 10mph 0% 0% [ 0 ] Between 10 and 15mph 5% 5% [ 2 ] Between 15-20mph 37% 37% [ 15 ] x Between 20-25mph 22% 22% [ 9 ] Between 25-30mph 12% 12% [ 5 ] 30mph+ but honestly it's a bicycle. 24% 24% [ 10 ]
? People vote what they vote; if they don't also explain themselves in a post there's no way to know who voted or why; that's perfectly normal too.that don't ring true?
If so, they'll be removed when found--duplicate accounts are not allowed. If you can point to specific instances of duplicate account use, they'll be investigated and resolved where possible, and the members warned. (typically both accounts will be merged and posts from one reassigned to the other--but it is a manual process and can take a very long time if there are more than a handful of posts...and polls cant' be fixed as there's no moderator access to the results or votes).This happens a lot. People want their view to matter, so have a few accounts to back themselves up.
There's no way to know, AFAICT, without actually sitting at the computer every member is logging in from and seeing the screen that comes up on this thread. If the screen shows they've voted, then they have, if not, they haven't. I'm sure the forum software internally tracks which have voted and which have not but the data isn't available to moderators.I consider the results to be fudged until a moderator tells me otherwise.
You sure are an impatient person, figuring all you will get is the first 3 days of data. Results could trickle in forever on a poll with no close date, especially as others mention the poll in other threads, and people that didn't know it was even there now go find it and vote. (like Eclectic's thread discussing the results of this poll).It's too many votes, in too short a time, on a poll that's about ground to a halt, for results that were highly unpopular. It stinks.
Considering that the standing world record for distance covered in one hour on a bicycle with drop handlebars is 49.7mph, I think you're mistaken. Or maybe you have a lot of gifted riders in your area who should consider making attempts at setting a new world record.TotalConfusion wrote:Road riders in my local area sit on 45 to 48kph on the flat
