Has anyone seen or tried this device?
I dunno. That plastic cog makes me a tad leary. Just 'cuz I don't trust plastic to last under pressure in the long run, especially in a bike.
I'd sure wouldn't mind being proven wrong, tho
Ok, I found a video that explains it. This just “tricks” the electric motor into propelling the bike faster by slowing the magnet the motor relies on to set its speed. It’s not a mechanical multiplyer of motor speed but of it’s digitally sensed speed. (I can’t be the only newbie puzzled by this?)Is there a video or schematic of how the Planet3 actually works? I’ve looked at the videos above and I’m fairly mechanically inclined and knowledgeable but my understanding of bike axle dynamics and how this functions in relation to it is lacking.
Sorry if I missed it, what bike are you riding?Just fitted he planet3 derestriction kit. Easy to fit, 15 minutes in all. Fitted perfectly, the instructions impeccable. Really well engineered and.......................... utterly utterly brilliant is all I can say. Everyone should do this. Alex needs an award for innovation. I cannot praise Alex or his invention highly enough. No messing with electrics or wiring. Got bike up to 26mph and ran out of puff - me not the motor!!! Will it stand the test of time? We will see. However, for £85 delivered to the UK from Croatia in a day, and for the smile it has brought to my face, if I get a year out of it, it will more than have done its job !!! Cheers Alex
