Drew is the engineer behind this project and he explained that they use the frame as heat sink for both the controller and the motor.I would be interested in how they dissipate 750 watts of heat inside the frame. If you run a bottle hanger off the seat tube, you might be able to brew a cup of coffee in 10-15 miles or so.
If you see them at Interbike, try to record something with that bike on demo day.. they don't have any videos so I don't believe they have a working prototype. idk though... I like to see things working instead of just reading about how theoretical they are.Fantastic, I will try to see them at Interbike and order a few bikes.
Yea, reminds me of another sucky product: the iPhone. Glad that beast (iphone) died on the vine and no one purchased it. Non-serviceable and can't remove battery leads to nothing but failure.It is a very stealthy design, and it has a lot of capability.
My problem is that there are no user serviceable parts.
You can't remove the battery unless the motor drive is removed.. By a dealer.
The motor drive is a first of a kind one of a kind design. Servicing or replacing it can only be done by the dealer.
Relaibility of new designs like this is usually not very good.
I just hope they do not sell this bike on line, and only at the retail level where a dealer can take care of the bike.. The owner certainly won be able to.
I believe VanMoof has the batteries in their electric bike in a similar configuration. Go to vanmoof.com for pix!
I'll have whatever you're having with Dinner..haha.Yea, reminds me of another sucky product: the iPhone. Glad that beast (iphone) died on the vine and no one purchased it. Non-serviceable and can't remove battery leads to nothing but failure.
