    PAS w bbshd

    Need a little help. I obtained the BBSHD hot rod tune, 750c display, big batt, accessories from Luna. Put it on my cannodale catalyst and over all, runs great. My question is, even after changing to 9 pas levels, pas level 1 provides +- 400 w (faux pedaling), 2 is at around 600 w...

    CAv3 pas

    I'm in Ft Myers Fl. Checked when I went for a ride last night and it's 3.03 on the screen at start up. Appreciate your help. It dawns on me that the cable for the satiator may work with the CA........ Jim

    CAv3 pas

    Thanks for your help. Will look into the firmware and will have to come up with a cable if I want to try a firmware up grade. Thanks for the links as well! Jim

    CAv3 pas

    Background: Grin package ezee geared, cav3, throttle, ebrake, speed, cadence sensors. Everything seems to work fine except pas. The features description leads me to believe I can have different pas levels in the different modes (I have all three modes invoked). Although I can get different...

    BMX to MBB recumbent conversion

    I view mbb recumbent as a cruiser rather than sport bike (they can go fast) as the steering has big built in dampers - your legs....... :(

    Battery problem

    Tried charging it again yesterday. Same symptoms, got it up to around 45v. Had to run an errand (unplugged charger) and when I returned, it had dropped to 37v in less than an hour. When charging, it was outside and near nothing flammable...... emailed this info to the vendor and am waiting for...

    Battery problem

    The vendor responded quickly by email and is indicating to go ahead and charge it longer to see if it will come up. I'm concerned that even if I can bring it up, with the symptoms it's exhibiting, will I be able to expect normal performance and life span? I'm new to this version of lipo batts...

    Battery problem

    A little background: I've been working with lipo batteries for some time but in the r/c modeling hobby. The 18650 batteries seem very similar from what I've been reading so I believe I have a problem with my new battery pack. I have a store bought e bike that uses a 48v dolphin pack with a...

    Em3ev with drop bar commuter - 50 miles/day

    Warren, I generally don't ride in traffic ( tourist town, retirement town and texting drivers.....lol). Actually, rarely need to go up and down curbs but do occasionally if no traffic nearby and I'm "j" riding across a street. The fatty is overkill for town but I do go up trail roads alot and...

    Em3ev with drop bar commuter - 50 miles/day

    I've been riding short wheel base bents for several years but my commuter is an up right (fatty) as it can handle curbs, has better visibility in traffic etc. My current bent is a cruzbike Q so adding the motor system in the rear will be easy since no gearing etc back there. Love the bent for...

    BMX to MBB recumbent conversion

    Interesting project. I've got a cruzbike Q that I'll be putting a hub in the rear in the next couple of months. Shouldn't take you too long to get used to riding the mbb...... good luck Jim

    Geared motor noise

    motomech, Thanks for taking time to post an in depth response with links. I'll do some more reading. Another question, in my reading on motors, in the last couple of days, I saw pictures of a geared hub motor but the gears were helical cut. I'm assuming that's a real high end setup. Are...

    Geared motor noise

    I checked the link to the grin site that shows the blue geared replacement assembly for the ezee motor. The page indicates it's machined nylon gear, no mention of composite......I'll contact them for more info just for fun. Jim

    Geared motor noise

    motomech, Thanks for the response. I re-read your previous post: you do mention a composite blue gear vs a grey gear. I've seen pictures of white gears. So the grey and white are nylon gears and the same? The blue gear is a stronger composite - nylon composite with other material? What...

    Geared motor noise

    A little slow this morning so able to hit google and then search the forum for info on the planetary gear material. I've found beaucoup references to the fact that different material is available (looking at plastic gears) but nothing specific. Would anyone have a link to further my...

    Geared motor noise

    Appreciate the replies. The seal comments are reassuring as we have a rainy season around here (north end of sub tropical). Being a recumbent, I'll rarely use 100% power and that level will be well within the spec'ed power limits. I'm looking forward to the CA that comes in the kit to set...

    Geared motor noise

    Moto, Thanks for your comments. I also need to check on the motor fit with the disc brake caliper. I have the dimensions of the motor so will do some measuring tonight. From what I can tell in your picture, those gears look to be in good shape, how many miles on that motor? My assumption is...

    Geared motor noise

    Looking for opinions - I have a bafang 750 w geared motor (48v) on my fatty and am impressed with how quiet it is. It's my commuter but also my trail road cruiser. In trail road cruise mode, I'm going slow and listening to the goings on in the woods. My upcoming project is to put a nice system...

    My recumbent cargo bike

    Hard to wheelie to get over the bump. I have a short wheel base front wheel drive recumbent that is sprung in the rear but not the front. I've purchased a radrover as my entry into e bikes. I use it to commute, run errands, as well as up the trail road (watching great horned owl chicks these...

    German Aerospace Center's fuel sell for e-cargo

    I find the cargo ebike as the final delivery vehicle in cities etc to be very interesting. Less trucks in the neighborhood and overall, less emissions. If this catches on and the fuel cells become a commodity item, could be very interesting as a batt substitute when range is needed. Jim

    Recumbent trikes

    A lot of folks with trikes in traffic will use a short pole with flag and blinking light. The right flag and small light will add some drag but easily dialed out with the e assist. Unless you test drive and find you like the way deltas handle, you'll probably want the tadpole. I'll be looking...
