You must have purchased a lemon, and bought from the wrong place, especially if parts took that long to get here. I get mine in days, and have installed multiple TS motors on bikes and recumbents. In fact they are great for recumbents with the torque sensing. One customer readily hits 26 mph with 500 watt 48 version. Not weak at all. He weighs 260 lbs.Ok, here is the update:
It is still working fine. I wouldn't worry about the power too much - there is not much difference between 350W motor that I put here, and my own 750 W version. But I would not recommend this build anyway. First of all, it was very difficult and with great risk of failure. Meanwhile, my own 750W motor failed and revealed some serious design flaws. I had to dismantle everything and replace the torque sensor, and it took 3 months for parts to arrive, and it was pretty expensive too. So I wouldn't recommend this motor for any projects any more, let alone Dahon Briza.
