Re: Help with what happened today

Tbh sounds like OP is crying wolf, should have been more patient in decision to turn right and sat a safe distance behind the vehicle and waited in prime position. In doing so indicating to behind traffic their intentions. Having lost balance and fallen against the car, one wasn't in control of the ...

Re: what power/speed would you like if no regulations

I would like to see a compromise set up. Higher speeds , say 25mph but the need to do training like a motorcycle CBT. Throw in a mandated small charge insurance fee and some form of machine identity. Plus helmet. Sort of moped but easier to do and cheaper. Highly optimistic though. Raod use only. T...

Re: Derestricting motor to 500w - will I notice much difference?

Yes, one can't simply lift the wheel to see how fast it goes as that is a no -load speed test and useless. Any speed test has to be loaded and with a recent calibrated device.

Re: Derestricting motor to 500w - will I notice much difference?

Not speed related but recently on Pedelecs a guy had his e cargo bike confiscated by plod because they tried to test the power and said the battery output more then 250w, so he was told it will be crushed. Another very knowledgeable forum user wrote him a letter fully explaining that they had incorr...

Re: Derestricting motor to 500w - will I notice much difference?

It is relatively easy to test for the assisted speed certainly far easier than working out the rated or nominal wattage. OK, tell me how you'd do it and bear in mind the amount of tech and the regular testing of it the police need to prove speeding by a car. . Raise the wheel off the ground, turn t...

Re: Woosh power control

Every one will find personnel preference varies, my first ever kit was a Woosh kit with Lishui tbh I never ventured out of PAS 1 as I could hit 19mph all the time and found the torque/acceleration just too abrupt. For my next kit I use them again with the BBS01, I found it more to my liking but pref...

Re: Derestricting motor to 500w - will I notice much difference?

Like you antbrewer ebikes allow me to ride due to asthma, my asthma is exertion induced so a push bike nearly kills me at times. I didn't realise I had asthma until in my late 20's, though up until them from my teens thought it was just due to fitness. Know one should criticise or make unfounded rem...

Re: Woosh power control

I forgot about the Woosh Lishui Speed controllers, the speed controllers are different to my current control ones. The speed controllers are programmed to give max current at any given set speed as also programmed in each PAS assist level. They use more battery per charge then current control contro...

Re: Woosh power control

When hill climbing often the speed is lower, the lower the speed the more the current is delivered & this current equates to more torque. On level terrain as you go faster and nearer the cut off speed torque and current backs off, it is complicated but the motor will be operating at it's optimal...

Re: Spare battery

That is a 840wh battery I could probably wring 70-80 odd miles out of it, using low pas and approx 1200m of ascent. A very fit rider 6 - 10 wh per mile, a regular rider with less fitness 10 - 20wh per mile and an unfit rider 20 -25wh per mile. Wind, ascent, tyre pressure (low) and heavy riders use m...

Re: what power/speed would you like if no regulations

Any one can legally have 30mph ebike if you are willing to insure, tax and get it tested. It means though you also need a motor cycle helmet. By the time one does all this it is easier and cheaper to insure a moped.

Re: Best Crank Drive kit?

For a standard BB then Bafang most reliable are Bafang though they come with poor programme settings, these can be altered via a free software download and a programming cable to buy. Tongsheng TSDZ is TS sensing, some say a bit under powered compared to the Bafang. Aikema also make a clone of the B...

Re: Throttle on the left or right

Throttle is illegal as the kit is post 2016, just so you know. You don't know what he's doing with the bike? Plus it's a 750w motor so I suspect the legality of the throttle is of little concern. But definitely on the right - it's just where they should be. Your right I don't know but unless the us...
