    New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

    I have an issue that I haven't found an answer reading here. 52v TSDZ2, system does not power on with power switch on VLCD5 display or remote handlebar switch, but if I unplug battery and reconnect it comes on without switch and runs fine, then after power off with switch it will not come back...

    How to connect BBSHD to an external controller?

    Can someone tell me the form factor or model or whatever of the white connector shown here? I believe they are the hall wires. I was able to buy a used controller cheap to experiment with, but that connector was not included, just the 6 wires. Is it maybe the same as a 5S balancing connector...

    Will the cold winter Shorten the life?

    I’d run the new one too, you’ll enjoy some extra power and you seem to know how you should take care of it well.

    29" e-bike for commuting - rear hub motor or TSDZ2 ?

    I like the tsdz2 system and I have 3 going at the moment. If you like to pedal go with the torque sensing you will be happier with it. I don’t mind to work on them a bit and its not hard, greasing or replacing parts. Some attention to using a stronger chain and smooth shifting makes a nice ride...

    Removing covers from MP5? Bunch of resistance/no click.

    On a magic pie v you can remove and replace the controller without removing the covers, it comes off from the brake side

    TSDZ2 vs Bafang BBSO2

    You got it pretty right, bafang is a scooter, tsdz2 is still a bike with help. I have both, now I prefer tsdz2 cause I need to pedal for exercise but lots of hills locally for old legs.

    Xtracycle cargo bike conversion questions

    Everyone has there opinions on the different types of setup. I’ve had 2 front hubs and ditched them both pretty fast as being unsafe for where I ride. Maybe they are fine on pavemant only but any gravel and the front wheel spins out. I have a mix of road types in my area so no way am I spinning...

    Xtracycle cargo bike conversion questions

    I guess I’m lucky enough to have a bbshd that has throttle in level 0, I pretty much just pedal and use thumb throttle as required. The pas is if you want to ghost peddle and cruise along under motor power. Doesn’t sound like how you ride. Kinda hard to keep thumb off throttle for me too much...

    Xtracycle cargo bike conversion questions

    TSDZ2 is a good motor but you will need to be careful in your stiuation stessing the motor while starting with a load. One of the drive gears is plastic and acts a bit as a sacrificial part. It will strip before something else goes so you should have a spare. Swapping it out is not to hard. You...

    Xtracycle cargo bike conversion questions

    You have chosen a pretty good setup for what you want to do but battery size is alwsys an issue. BBSHD will both carry weight and ride in hilly country as long as you use appropriate gears. You need to travel quite slow to be able to contribute much pedaling, like less than 20 mph. Chainring...

    It looks like the plastic cover over the big gear may not be seated properly, you would need to remove the chainring to seat it properly.

    New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

    That looks like a good idea I think I'll pester you for a sample, On the full suspension set up I have been using the bafang BB nut set up as I have a torque wrench and socket to fit them, no more dinky doo bendy wrench issues

    Custom battery build for downhill bike (need work double checked)

    why is the battery shape so different in your 2 versions? It seems like its for the same bike. I have found that the custom shaped battery enclosure is the most complicated part of a build because it needs to fit and be secured well and you need to make the battery to fit inside of it. Even...

    My post on Apr 19 2018 has a few photos of the kit and and installing the adapter, you need a tap to thread your motor to accept the adapter, my kit came with tap, My adapter is a 120mm that I installed on a 100mm bottom bracket, extra spacers required for this. So far running well with the...

    On the sensor see the arrow on the top in your photo, line up the magnet with that. The gap in the case lets moisture out, what it is covering is an empty chamber no wires or controller in there.
