Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Weird, fwiw I don't have a temp sensor installed but have not had any issues with thermal throttling. Granted, here its been low 60's on a nice day and i usually ride in the 3rd assist level. Plus, I am on 26x2.1's that weigh about 550g so less rotational mass. I weigh right around 160 With my setup...

Re: Bafang G310 geared hub - 11:1 reduction ratio!!!

Weird as it sounds, I've actually been impressed with a decent amount of the stuff that I've gotten from there recently if I'm very selective not to buy the cheapest shit and only things with lots of reviews. There of been parts and tools I've been waiting on literally over a year but I've been out ...

Re: Bafang G310 geared hub - 11:1 reduction ratio!!!

Almost all the parts have trickled in so i am about to embark on my g310 build. Looking forward to it In an odd twist of fate, i picked up a cheap chinese carbon hardtail 26er to put a mid drive on that did'nt fit. I had this sitting around new in a 29" rim i got in here, beautiful wheel build ...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

yes I suppose it would make more sense, I like the form factor of this control but perhaps I could use one of the integrated battery pack controllers rather than this. I wasn't aware that I could run a torque sensor directly with OSF But that's definitely the way to go if it's the case, Looking into...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

I've been thinking for a while about how to pull off the lightweight minimalist build with torque sensor support on a hub. I'm pondering trying to use a tsdz2 controller standalone, If I could adapt it to run, say, a q100? I havent attempted OSF yet, But essentially what I need to know I guess is if...

Re: Santa Cruz Cham-E-leon (mk7) - Mid Drive Conversion

The TSDZ2 is a great little motor. It really feels like a bike on steroids. I was just riding yesterday and was thinking how much i love the way it performs. I put down a bit less watts at around 250. To throw down some shitty metrics, i would estimate between weight, resistance and unideal gearing ...

Re: Could this be quite the bargain?

Are there balancing leads? its just a separate 5.5mm charging lead but i bet they would do external balancing leads if requested. I figured it would just be loosely packed in the usual blue shrink with maybe some cardboard but It actually feels like plastic sheet, it's pretty sturdy. They used sili...

Could this be quite the bargain?

Probably not but we will see. I was looking for a pack like this and the seller specifically stated NCR21700t cells. What is interesting is that all of their other listings don't specify the cell and don't show pictures, and this one has a hand written 9.6ah capacity rather than checking off the 10 ...

Re: Santa Cruz Cham-E-leon (mk7) - Mid Drive Conversion

More importantly...Is that a 135i?

Re: High Performance 48V 20Ah Lithium Ion Battery for E-bike(MoKuai)

From what i remember, BAK made some pretty good cells. For anyone who isn't familiar with this story, back in the earlier-mid 2000's, Magicshine headlights came out and for the first time, bright led lights were attainable without spending an arm and a leg. A couple people began distributing them, G...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

that FSR is beautiful and the weight really is pretty decent with the dropper and heavy flat pedal. I am doing a weight weenie build right now and trying to keep it on a budget but its like an endless spiral thats exponentially more past a certain point.

Re: Please help me, I am badly in need of your help with Bikee kit.

I hope that they make better hardware than they do videos: https://youtu.be/lh2PKcqJ2_8 I sure you have tried it already but try unplugging the throttle as well. The concept of having a vehicle that is dependent on a fickle smartphone and bluetooth boggles the imagination. What could possibly go wr...

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

as you were saying above, it seems like the 36 V is the best one to start out with for flexibility if you're planning on going OSF, Are there any disadvantages such as lower thermal mass?

Re: First build and battery seems to die too quick.

also that kit comes with a controller that will draw ~30 amps peak. a quick workaround to make it useable would be to attach the 2 blue jumper wires and limit the top speed. in this mode iirc its 16mph/22a max. since it generally gets up to that top speed so fast the battery wont sag too badly
