    Newbie Questions on Motor Size, Geared vs Single Speed

    Single speed will really limit (cripple) the bike's utility/functionality.

    Need help deciding on a sub $2,500 bike for off road

    Have a look at the Rize bikes as well. That budget will let you look at both hub drives and Ultra powered mid drives. https://rizebikes.com/

    Dost or Rize

    For me, the Dost vs. Rize comparison is about the Bafang BBS02 motor vs. the Bafang Ultra. The BBS02 has the advantage of a little quieter operation due to it's composite gear, and both offer similar power, but the Ultra motor has the torque sensing. Then there's the size of the batteries. The...

    RX or RX Pro - would you switch?

    Keep in mind we're talking electric motors, not little 2 stroke motors that must be kept in a very narrow power band to make power. These electrics make good power until you stall them pretty much! I think they work best somewhere in the middle of their power band when it comes to big hills...

    Upgrade fat bike 48V 750W hub motor rear wheel ??

    I can tell you that an LCD3 display only works with a KT controller. If you're bike came supplied with a KT controller, that makes it a pretty unusual bike. I didn't think any of the OEM's were using them. From there, I agree with Harry's notes above. We'll need more info to proceed much...

    We turned that into a case of the "flew" for sure!😂

    RX or RX Pro - would you switch?

    We have a new bike w/Bafang 500w that I installed an aftermarket controller on - with a display that show wattage in use real time (the second reason I replaced the controller). There's a pretty stiff hill nearby that I used to set the controller's max output to the motor. I weigh nearly double...

    RX or RX Pro - would you switch?

    Couldn't agree more..... The tires that came stock (RX PRo) were gone within 100 miles, swapped for 3" street tires. Still pretty draggy, but they do ride better than a generic 2".

    Coyote encounters

    I'll bet that Coyote does have rabies. I had a large muskrat come after me in a parking lot located next to a swamp one day. As luck would have it, I saw it coming and was able to give it a flying lesson. End of encounter. Would be funny if it were not for the thought that if I hadn't seen it...

    Upgrade fat bike 48V 750W hub motor rear wheel ??

    How much faster are you thinking? 52v will clearly add speed, but not an awful lot, especially on a fatty. The big direct drive motors may be faster, but they are gutless at lower speeds and pulling away from a stop. Limited climbing power as well. I would say NOT a good plan on a fatty...

    Controller in same bag as battery?

    That thermometer kinda puts an end to the guessing don't it! Good idea! Safe bet things are even warmer inside the controller's case....

    Espin Nero

    Our Flow is set up with these as well, and our experience with the set up being right on the same as well. I just wanted to add that though my big mitts were not having any issue, the wife was having a little trouble with that push-push arrangement. I rotated it a bit to the rear on the...

    Controller in same bag as battery?

    I would say the answer depends on how hard you're pushing the controller's capacity. Clearly, the controller in the bag gets no air circulation, which it may need to perform to it's full rated capacity.

    Espin Flow pedal assist power levels

    My display looked like the one you guys are talking about, but has a different number on the back. I questioned Espin about this, about why I wasn't able to access the more advanced settings, pretty much accusing them of bait and switch with a cheaper one that's less capable, even referencing...

    New Bike and a question

    The process you detail is there, but it's happening late in the charge cycle - before the charger shuts off. You would see this if you were to charge to 100% more frequently. Once the charger shuts off, it's off until the power is cycled. IF that power were cycled due to a local power outage...

    BBS*** Settings for a Smoother Ride

    Terminology is not helping us I think. That's why I asked you to expand on your thoughts a bit, to better understand where you are coming from, so I might be able to share what is available/make that work? The Eco and Sport modes do provide SOME of what you are asking about (laid back vs. go...

    BBS*** Settings for a Smoother Ride

    No. Not without plugging in your laptop. If I remember correctly, they're talking about running out of memory as it is. Doubling the requirement for a second profile, and the ability to switch between them sounds like quite a stretch. There's no reason you couldn't have 2 different profiles on...

    New Bike and a question

    That's really not my plan, but you're welcome to an opinion. For me, it's WAY more about supplying rookies with clear no B.S. answers. I really don't like the idea of supplying folks that are absolutely new to the hobby/sport with questionable information where that info turns into info where...
