Yeah but a fully assembled ebike for $500(retail) or $400 in bulk... extra $100 to ship here and $100+ profit per bike? Surely thats a business case for a simple commuter.Lurkin wrote:- expensive labour to produce anything
solve those two ftw.
Good to see you are back at it! I wondered how long it would take you to end up disassembling the BBS02. Paul from Em3ev can probably get anything you require.. good effort on the controller! Wondered what they were like under the potting goo.
That BBS controller teardown proves that its simply not cost effective to replace the FETS on a BBS02 compared to buying a new controller. I drank the whole 1L of wild turkey disassembling it... It was great. Ewan at eMax is getting all upgraded controllers with upgraded FET's moving forward, so these issues should be a thing of the past soon enough.
I'm still trying to do rehab on hand and right knee, so minimising my non-assisted riding to under 100km/day. Should be back to full strength in a few months hopefully... then do a few 150-200km rides with some assist. Hills are still fuking me though, so wont go back to mountains/single track for a while =(
