Re: If It's Too Good To Be True??

Might be genuine but I wouldn't touch with the proverbial barge pole.

Re: eBike Conversions - Go on, show us yours!

I use a 32 /48 double with my BBS01 and use Alfine 8 IGH, though chain line is a bit crap there is no changing issues which a derailleur would have.

Re: eBike Conversions - Go on, show us yours!

Woosh bikes in Southend re now selling tsdz2 48v 250w mid rive kits which are Torque sensor instead of cadence sensor similar to Bafang BBS, they will except a double front ring set up. A Bafang will but chain line is a bit out ok if you use IGH.

Re: Cargo Bike Conversion

250w isn't a max wattage rating, it is a test criteria that it won't over heat during a constant test period of 1 or 2 hrs at that wattage so is merely a nominal rating that conforms an agreed criteria. If it passes it is given a 250w rating. Any 250w rated hub will have a higher peak wattage output...

Re: Cargo Bike Conversion

The Woosh 48v swx02 kit is 250w and marked on the casing as so. The advantage of 48v over 36v is the motor will have 33 more torque and speed if you wanted to have it. Also a 48v 12ah battery will have the same range as a 36v 16ah one as both will have similar watt hours. The swx02 is marked as code...

Re: How to go electric on a postie-type bike ?

You can't over volt the BBS01, if you try you get the magic smoke from the controller.
Even with the 250w if you tinker with the programming via a programming lead and it is a different beast from the factory default settings.

Re: OBREA GAIN D40 (e-bike)

Have to say I am very attracted to the Gain. If I am to continue cycling, options appear to be 1. move house 2. somehow convert my c.16lb carbon framed bike to run with a 20" bottom gear 3. buy electric. 1. is expensive. 2. is impossible (contrary opinions welcome!) 3. is expensive. Short of a...

Re: Opinions on this motor drive on tyre itself

Expect tyre wear to be a bit higher then normal so depending on how much you engage the system and mileage budget for 1 or 2 new tyres each year. Friction drives have been done before so it's nothing new that said, the lightest kit only adds 2kg or less to a bike and the larger battery option only a...

Re: Front Hub Motor Not Working

The clutch mech inside can stick and is usually activated by 3 pins/springs found on the opposite side /face to the nylon gears. It could be that they may be oxidised as well and the springs if weak may need replacing. Link to pic. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=2kGR9TVP&a...

Co2 is not recommended as a air source with sealants due to sealant reaction.

Re: Any Point Me Going Tubeless

I set up my Arkose as TL to rid my self of pinch flats. Arkose came with TL ready rims but not TL tyres so will buy TL ready tyres when replacement is needed, current tyres leech through walls a little so looses pressure when left standing after a few days. Choice of sealant after looking at reviews...
