    Why do the big bike brands (almost) never use hub motors?

    250W e-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms hub motors See my article here: https://www.avdweb.nl/solar-bike/hub-motor/mid-drive-vs-hub

    Soon I will get 10 boards, ( are already sold ) later this year I will produce more

    Question for Specialized SL 1.1 motor owners

    Throttle control is still possible with Yamaha mid drive and many other brands (when you change the motor driver electronics). I updated my page here: https://www.avdweb.nl/solar-bike/hub-motor/motors-compared

    Question for Specialized SL 1.1 motor owners

    I have find it out, it has no double freewheel

    Question for Specialized SL 1.1 motor owners

    I would like to use the Creo Turbo for my solar-powered bike, the Maxun One, but I have my own electronics because I want to ride with motor support, with a throttle assist, but without pedaling and thus with the bottom bracket not turning. So, does the SL1.1motor has a double freewheel, so...

    Sorry, you are right, I live in the Netherlands..

    250W E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms 250W hub motors

    I like the 2-speed concept, but the 2-speed Suzhou Xiongda Motor YTWS-01 has a weigth of 3.2kg, which is idiot.

    250W E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms 250W hub motors

    Hi members, thanks for your comments, in the meantime, I have eliminated some ambiguities in my article https://www.avdweb.nl/solar-bike/hub-motor/mid-drive-vs-hub This article handles about ebikes up to 250W (which are allowed in Europe without a license). This is because by nature, all small...

    250W E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms 250W hub motors

    The simulations are only valid for motors up to 250W. As we use in Europe for driving witout licence. This is because by nature, all small permanent magnetic motors have equal characteristics. At 1000W, I expect serious differences in performance, but I have not tested this.

    250W E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms 250W hub motors

    You're right. But the simulations are only valid for motors up to about 500W. This is because by nature, all small permanent magnetic motors have equal characteristics. At 1000W, I expect serious differences in performance, but I have not tested this.

    I am sure that you will get the same results when tested (with 250W motors) on a test bench

    Yes, coincidentally, I am looking to use that Turbo Creo SL from Specialized for my Maxun One solar bike.... It's the rolls royce of ebikes and the only one, I think, without that resistance.

    Hub motors with direct drive have not been tested in the article. By the way, these are outdated concepts and far too heavy

    The simulations are only valid for motors up to about 500W. This is because by nature, all small permanent magnetic motors have equal characteristics. At 1000W, I expect serious differences in performance, but I have not tested this. Friction when driving without motor support: this is because...

    250W E-bike mid-drive motors hardly outperforms 250W hub motors

    I wrote an article where you can read that a mid-drive motor hardly outperforms a hub motor. https://www.avdweb.nl/solar-bike/hub-motor/mid-drive-vs-hub In practice there is no significant difference in performance. You can clearly experience this yourself during test drives with both kind of...
