Hailong 03 down tube battery - how to attach it appropriately?

Hi, I'll just ask everyone: how did you attach your HaiLong 03 down tube battery to the frame? The battery is quite heavy at 6.6 kg. Images etc. are appreciated. Thinking how to mount the battery to my new project. https://www.pedelecforum.de/forum/index.php?attachments/img_20210217_232826_1-jpg.367...

Re: Durable 10 speed cassette and chain?

I've noticed that even with a rather low power (750W) mid-drive the smallest cogs (11t and 13t) wear out really quickly. If you don't need huge range in the cassette, it would be better to stick to bigger cogs. Other option is to buy a bunch of cheap 11t and 13t cogs and replace them as necessary r...

Re: Durable 10 speed cassette and chain?

You can look for NOS 8-9 speed derailleur, 8 speed shifter and cogs. That is all I run on my bikes, with SRAM 8 speed chain. I bought this stuff when it was just obsolete, before it became collectible. lol https://www.ebay.com/b/Shimano-Rear-Derailleurs-for-Mountain-Bike-8-Speed/177813/bn_5670514 h...

Re: Durable 10 speed cassette and chain?

The CSMS3 works pretty well for me on my 2kw mid-drive. I'm running a basic KMC X10 chain and it also works well. Are you looking for a cassette and chain that just doesn't wear out as fast or are you having breakage issues? Nope, I was just going through my options, wanted to hear how robust 10spe...

Re: Durable 10 speed cassette and chain?

10 speed is a narrower chain, which is weaker then 7 or 8 speed chain. Plus the 7/8 spd components are cheaper then 10 spd. Yep, the downside is that I need to downgrade my rear derailleur and shifter, only entry level stuff. After googling I found out that Xt 10-speed doesn't work with 7/8 speed.

Re: Does BBS02/TSDZ2 fit my Cube Acid 2014 MTB?

A 68mm BBSxx series motor will work out fine. TSDZ2 is a more difficult fit on some frames. But I've only finished a couple of their builds. Thank you, I think I will go with bbs02b then. Do you have any clue about gearshift sensors? I was planning to get this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3...

If the middrive goes thru the pedal drivetrain, and the middrive breaks the drivetrain, then you can't pedal either.

personally use cheap $10-$12 chains between 1-2k miles before seeing measurable wear avoid small rear cogs especially 11t use a chain wear gauge/tool regularly swap for a new chain any measured wear doing so greatly reduces cog wear Thanks I currently have 10 speed cassette at back.

I thought about middrive because maintenance is easier with it compared to rearhub. Not really.
