The bike is for sale. I love it. But want to try something a little different (factory mid drive) .
Since my last update I bought a cyclone drive and installed it on the Norco. I've instantly gained about 30mm of additional ground clearance.
A mate of mine is going to plasma cut me a bracket that will move the cyclone further forward and up. A bonus of this is that a Sine wave Infineon will fit behind the motor within the bracket for a stealth look and overall about 60mm more ground clearance than the BBS02
Another thing I thought I would try is 3d printed cyclone gears. I'm not expecting much. But I'm not pushing the motor hard either. Currently running it at 60% of the default cyclone setting.
I'll try running the plastic gears at 20% controller current setting and wind up the controller slowly while riding it around the back yard to around 50% before I try taking it to a track
Also shown is my new Nano-Lebowski controller. Overall PCB size is 100mm X 62mm pretty small.
Lastly even though I'm trying to sell the bike, I really want to buy a tsdz2 tongsheng motor. Torque sensored control. 48v 500W plus. Plus when I overlay the drawing into my bike. I can expect 26mm better ground clearance than the bafang.
I might give it a go I can always put the motor on my road bike
