    Shorter adult: 750W Bafang, step-through, mid-drive, suspension fork

    Good Lord, buy a "Maxfoot" cruiser they have a step through 750 watt cruiser for around $1300 and the Bafang hub drive feeds off a 26 amp controller it will pull you through,why do you think hub drives have more maintenance?( around 13 Ah with 180 mm rotors,, they even have a nice trike for...

    Why are the e-bike sold only with heavy inefficient fat tires?

    Tried a "Vado" out at "Cardinal" bikes, it peddled easy with no assist and the plump" tires( looked kinda like"Hookworms") Handled grass and pavement easily. I had my eye on the "semi-cruiser" bikes by "Specialized" Man those bikes looked sweet. The "specialized" EMTBs looked mean and ready for...

    Should I wait or should I buy now

    True those Plus size fat tires on the Sonders will make it harder to peddle unpowered, that being said you can find something with a more reasonable sized tire and a good low rolling resistance rating on the tire itself If you were close by I would let you try out my new Eahora XC100 it weighs...

    Not really diy more like a complete upgrade

    You could have stuck the 48 volt battery with a proper controller and got more speed, that 11 tooth anything should have give given you more speed( stock units usually start at 14 teeth) I had a 26" FTB that you could go over 30 mph with an 11 tooth freewheel. The DD Motor would have lasted...

    Gearing change for Moscow

    Controller should be first thing, 15-22 amp controller would probably give the motor all it can use, the best use of limited wattage would probably be mid drive, some of those restricted hub drives are more than likely derated, the Hub drive motor on the XC100 is ridiculously tiny, I do not...

    A Comparison review for the Rattan Fat Bear Plus vs. Lectric XP

    I had an XP, couldn't get rid of it fast enough, the battery range didn't seem to be very great and it felt, well not top line-Yamee had a year end sale($1149) and I couldn't believe the value for the price point, usable 8 spd, 180 mm disc brakes( hydraulic) fenders ,rack,, my biggest...

    NCM Moscow+ from 3x8 to 1x10 and it is awesome!

    For only $212 USD you improved the bike to make it a better climber, sounds pretty good( how about doing the cheap end equivalent and telling us what it would cost ?)

    Mystery solved

    Thank you and thats good to know, I have bought a rack for it and it is a whole lot lighter than the 82# cruiser it replaced I have purged my "stable" enough I may just keep it( there is a RR trail about 38 miles away I can try it on, thanks again-its a really nice looking bike.

    Mystery solved

    It was kind of weird, the bottom of the box had extra tape on it like someone had opened the Box, the dirt on the tire could have been were someone let it rest on a dirty surface, do not expect Lola and me will be doing anymore business, I have had 4 other ebikes and the packaging was first rate...

    Securing extra battery to Moscow Plus

    each pack has to be charged to the same level, perhaps if the cells are radically different it will not work right( kinda like trying to mix Diesel and gasoline?) It will be nice if we ever get a Hi performance battery that doesn't require cell balancing. And its probably a good idea to use...

    Securing extra battery to Moscow Plus

    Parallel is easy(use same voltage batteries) and simply incorporate the same polarity wires together it is easy to find parallel XT combiners. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT SHORT ANYTHING! these batteries can dump a lot of current fast( you can find out what a plasma is) if unsure get someone to show you...

    Mystery solved

    My problem as well,I tried to adjust the current up on my controller it only has 3PAS levels, Lola implied my bike may not have had the 15 amp controller,She offered me a 18 amp controller for$95.99 and said she would try to get me a $20.00 discount, sounds like a different story from what you...

    Big name bikes and Bafang

    Just remember the initial voltage on a 60v battery will exceed the rating on many controllers, with a real possibility the components will suffer damage. If you really want,fast and stupid acceleration( sort of , kind of resembles an ebike) there a Polish built Ebike or trail bike (if you will)...

    Securing extra battery to Moscow Plus

    I actually had to come to grips with what I actually needed and would use. I did order a "Big Bear" I like regen it helps you go down these steep inclines around here at a reasonable rate( helps keep "chill factor" and blurry vision to a reasonable level)
