Looks like a very maneuverable ebike, very well balanced too
You are going to end up walking bow legged riding that "ebike"
And that controller is absolutely huge, is that a 24fet to run you 24v 500w motor?
It is an 1,800W brushless motor with 20S - LTOs. Controller is 38 amps and rated at 1,500W. Not able to ride it in 3 feet of snow. Waiting on the weather to change. Then plan on shooting a video with dual cameras. A small Cannon powershot to record all data from a power meter and my sunglass camera for the road ahead and a speedometer.
If DA. wants to he can post a graph on the measured performance vs. theoretical (what it should be for maximum efficiency) of the e bike and EVERY e bike I own. That way I can make improvements / upgrades as needed. That is all I ever wanted. To build and test e bikes first and worry about how they look later.
My 10 gauge wiring is rated at 30 amps continuous which = 53V * 30A = 1,590W (RMS) continuous.
However some wise ass will tell me I need to take the whole thing apart and upgrade to 8 gauge. The insulation on my 10 gauge Cerrowire is rated at 221 degrees F. Sure it can handle bursts of > 40 amps for < 30 seconds but nobody else thinks so.
I was also thinking for my 3,000W brushless motor that it could be possible to run it with 10 gauge wire as 70V * 30 amps = 2,100W (RMS) continuous. That should enable 30 to 35 mph cruising. When > 40 mph is desired It should only pull 40 amps or more for < 30 seconds which should NOT be enough time to heat up the wire even close to 221 degrees F.
However LTOs are expensive and would need to spend > $300 for 70V and would weigh about 70 pounds so was thinking I keep the LTOs for up to 1,500W controllers and go with the 13S power modules in series with NAME BRAND, Ternergy or Multistar 4S - LiPo for the 3 kilowatt motor/controller. 6 gauge Cerrowire. and a 100 amp inline fuse for the negative power wire and a 100 amp DC breaker for positive (hot). (Double protection).
Outside (ambient) temperature also plays a major role in heat so may want to try > 40 mph on a cool day instead of a really hot day. that rule of thumb also pertains to the motors and controllers , not just wiring.
Of course nobody on this forum will agree with any of what I just said.
I am stupid and have learned NOTHING in 8 years.
Yea. That was entertaining.
You may want to stay on topic so you don't get banned. Is why I started the other post that got deleted. I am not posting much here anymore as sick of being ridiculed.
No matter what I build it will get picked apart here so am seeking out other e bike forums which I will post a link to in case there are a few members who can follow my thread without negative comments.
The name of my new post will be " As the Hub Motor Turns and the LiPo Fire Burns" Somebody came up with that many years ago and I just like it.
If I could I would start my own e bike forum like Marty said he was going to do but starting a website is above my computer skill level. I would need some help. DA. could help me but will he ? He also seems to think I am NOT capable of learning anything or doing anything right.
I build e bikes. There not always pretty or practical but sometimes they work, at least for awhile. Immortality is not a dream but the future of our evolution. We were given the tools to forge our own destiny. We were created in gods image and shall evolve to live forever.
