Re: 48v 250w motor

If you buy the right TSDZ2, you can have 52V.

Re: Help please, first time fitting tubeless.

I like to hear two pops as the tyre seats on the rim. I use a compressor to force lots of air volume to quickly seat the tyre Once the tyre is on, I then remove about 6" with tyre levers, turn one lever sideways to create an opening. Pour in 75 millilitres of Orange seal 'Endurance' I then roll...

Re: Recs for semi hilly commute

You need a full driving license prior to 2001 or CBT They come registered with the DVLA and require 3rd party insurance. But th...

Re: Best e-bike for smallish woman exploring hilly countryside (roads and mild off-road)?

I think said young lady poster has left due to bickering :( Personal choice would be to get a simple, but comfortable bike with disc brakes(hydraulic) Drop in a Tongscheng or Bafang motor kit. Kits take very little to fit, any competent bike shop or home cycle enthusiast can do it. It took me about ...

I use Tenerife bike training for arranging my trips If you're of average weight 70-80 kg. then you will probably get by on with the gearing. Most folk use 50/34 and 11-32 cass. The gradients arent too...

Re: Replacement battery for e-bike (different voltage and Amp hours), will it work?

What Motor kit is it? Some kits can be reprogrammed.

I have a Tongscheng TSDZ2 custom kit. It has the benefit of being a 48V kit but I run a 52V battery to aid range and cooler running by using higher voltage not Anps. I can alter battery voltage to suit what battery I decide to use

Re: Gear changing strategy; how do you use a triple?

I have a triple setup on my Tripster ATR its Di2 gearing is 48/36/26 I use a 11/32 or 11/40 cassette. I occasionally use the 26t granny ring for above 10% mainly 36t for climbing and the 48t for flat fast pedalling. The gearing allows me to pedal at a decent cadence on all gradients and I can still ...

You can happily run 3 led lights from a Shimano 3W hub. You can even charge a phone with a usb adaptor

Re: Anyone using an 11-speed 11-42t (or similar) with a triple chainset?

I was giving the example of range the gearing offers.

You are right, if I remember correctly, I hit 145rpm at 53mph coming down Mt Teide chasing down my pack. I would usually coast above 35mph, but I was having a bit of fun that day :D

Re: Anyone using an 11-speed 11-42t (or similar) with a triple chainset?

I have Kinesis Tripster ATR V2 which I have fitted a Deore Triple crankset 48/36/26 and I either use a 11-32 cass or 11-40 for mountains. This is shifted with XT/XTR Di2 front and rear on road shifters. I developed the setup from using a 44/28 mtb crankset. I use syncro shift to limit cross chaining...
