    Is One Really Better Than The Other On An Electric Skatebaord?

    I would say it depends on how you work out your transmission ratio so that the speed, acceleration, etc could be the same between belt/hub ( ...interresting brain teaser actually: 1:1 ratio w. same wheels, same kV, same outrunner motor outer diameter) without going through the whole history of...

    FVT 120A skateboard brake problem

    sorry... I just keyed in "FVT 120A ESC" in a "search engine" and got that : I had difficulty to find the right setting in order to have a smooth and linear brake on my electric skateboard equipped with the FVT 120A ESC. I started using the firmware offered by Banggood but the brake was too...

    The black art of motorcycle dynamics

    Oh man... I won't even try to explain that to you... maybe go grab a medicine ball, run and jump in a pool, and trow the ball while you are in the air : get back to us if you landed at the same place than the ball... or you take your electric bicycle hook it in the air and check where the...

    [update] kona stinky

    As it is now, stable and going well (damaged the original controller, got a Grinfineon 40A instead, had an unsuccessfull attempt to run on a mid drive kit-twisted free wheel, bought an MXUS 1000W motor and installed an 18s Bluetooth BMS, run mostly around 1000W to 1500W and sometimes up to 2500W...

    2001 Kona Stinky Conversion - Advice?

    Welcome on Endless sphere... those bikes are great, you can use them as they are and keep room for long term upgrades, I believe if the " commute 13k to school along trails and road." is without significant climbs, any of the grin technology kit you look at will work fine, do you know which...

    "We don't service DIY Ebikes" said the cycle shop

    right: it was mostly an "opportunity cost" issue, I was not against dropping my bike there for 30min, say 1h at most and get the brakes flushed for 20bucks maybe ? ...so I got my fresh DOT liquid bottle for like 10bucks instead, ...probably 10x the volume required ...and made it myself, ...got...

    "We don't service DIY Ebikes" said the cycle shop

    So... I went to a cycle shop to get my hydraulic brakes flushed and maintained : Has soon has they saw the e-bike, they told me, "we do not service DIY e-bikes for legal reasons" ...was just wondering if it's often like that and if you had a similar experience in your area ?

    bluetooth BMS?

    sorry, maybe I was of topic : my battery is made of 3x16Ah 6s LiPo pack. Tonight I plugged other 3x5Ah 6s LiPo pack and could load to 2kW w.o issues, I think the BMS is OK. EDIT : just saw your post, ElectricGod, I will keep an eye on possible setting conflict and let u know if I can't sort the...

    bluetooth BMS?

    it showed up after a long offroad downhill so I won't be surprised to see mechanical damages... the informations given by the app are all correct in static conditions, only when I apply load (bike suspended and wheel spinning free), I get many protections activated after some attempts...

    bluetooth BMS?

    It is the 18s version of the BMS sold by BMS battery : https://bmsbattery.com/bmspcm/834-smart-bms-10s13s-60a-with-blue-tooth-android-or-ios-app.html

    bluetooth BMS?

    after 3 battery cycles of satisfaction, the BMS does not accept load anymore: it powers off as soon as load is applied and an "IC front-end error" appears in the event log... does anyone knows what that is ?

    Controller to throttle and digital voltmeter panel

    do has Fechter showed, (that's what I meant initially, I usually just solder the ignition thin wire on the power line, yes with a careful cut, and some heat shrink around, but if you really want an ignition switch, put it there ) I am not aware of any additional wires for an ignition switch

    Would you put solar panel on your electric vehicle

    *subscribed* As french living in Switzerland, I can confirm there is an ebike market range for 500W limited to 45km/h registered as moped here. For some reason, they remain quite rare even if some supermarkets have tried to sell some... I am very interested with the sun trip, at the times I...

    Controller to throttle and digital voltmeter panel

    soldering is ok as long as you do it properly. sometimes it's good to start with those thing below before soldering the red cable of your controller should be energized (battery "+") for ur controller to be "on", I don't know if it can be connected to your voltmeter panel.

    bluetooth BMS?

    I wired up the 18s version of "BMS battery" smart BMS. when I try to connect with the android application from their website, it does not remain connected and a message "connection refused by xiaoxiang BMS" shortly sowes up. I tried the "smart BMS" application and the behavior is the same : it...

    BHT Swing Arm & Power Middrive

    what's the point ? It seems to me exactly the opposite way : once an isolated DIY EV maker comes to a good idea, then it's being copied for mass production without any consideration to its original work. (endless examples around here)
