(Toronto) Need ebike help, regen braking issue

Post by peaceful sojourner » Dec 21 2018 5:45pm

Greeting, James here. I need help with a custom electric bike I have here, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am hoping there is someone who frequents this forum here, who can help me with a regen braking issue. Any help will help; otherwise I am going through bb7 brakepads every month.

I thank you

Without knowing all the details about the bike, and the specific problem you are having, we can't really help much, other than to say taht there are a number of potential problems.

It could be:

--brake activation device (switch, etc)

--battery's BMS

--controller design

--controller wiring

--controller setup

--controller programming

--motor type

or other things, depending on exactly what you have and how it is setup.

What controller are you using, some of the cheaper items simply do not have regen (from experience very frustrating). Do you have a brake light or some type of activation for an input for the regeneration.
