      GeorgeHenry Pedelec member, Hi d8veh. I own an Oxygen emate city. Recently it has developed an intermittent problem.From reading your comments I have noticed that you repair bikes for people.I would love you to look at it. Drop me a line to henry.hornby@sky.com and I could give you more details than I can here.Henry.

      Hi d8veh, I need some help, I own a Trek Top Fuel 9.9 carbon and I would like to fit a BBS02 (B) to it, (which I already ordered), I have seen the brilliant build you did for it and I was wondering if there is any chance I could buy the needed parts off you? I mean the custom ones.Thanks a lot! Lucio
      PS I live in Belgium

        They were made to fit the bike by a local engineering company. we no longer have the bike, nor the drawings/sketches of the parts. The crank spacers are easy enough, you just need to measure your bearing housings.

      Hiya very nice bloke, I would like some advice. I have had my Oxygen bike now for about six weeks and so far so good, I am using it every day for work, however last week I decided to tackle a local quite tough hill with short very steep sections. I managed it but it was really tough, is there a knack to it with a pedelec I was in the lowest gear possible and the highest assist and it nearly killed me!

        There's three power modes, something like eco, normal and power, and 6 PAS levels. Did you have it on the highest power level that you select from the "set" button? If not, that's why. If you did, there's not much else you can do. Obviously, you need to be on PAS level 6 too.

        Hiya was on the normal power level, I forgot about the power modes, will attempt another run at it and make sure someone is at the top with my inhaler. Thanks V

      Hi there, I hope you don't mind me asking, I am looking for an answer about whether the Bafang BBS01 250 watt motor has the same internal capacity as the BBS01 350watt...I would like to play with programming the 250 to have more power on hills and have both so have been thinking of looking at the programme settings on the 350 and upping the ones on the 250, but obvs don't want to blow anything.

        Ask the question in the electric bike kits forum. there's plenty of guys that have more experience than me about the best settings. yes, you can turn up the power a bit.

        (ideally sinewave) with an LCD and max current of 15 to 20 amps, powered by a dolphin or shark type battery.

        A lower speed 36v motor (say 201 rpm) with a 48v battery and controller at 15 amps would be good.

      Hi d8veh
      I found some time ago a post with a picture of the old Powabyke handlebar mounted control box, showing a schematic of the wiring plugs etc. I think it was posted by you several moons ago. If so I would appreciate it if you could post it again as i need the colours to rewire the throttle cable plug.
      Thanks, by the way I find your posts interesting, keep up the good work.
      Geoff

      Hi there mate, I made a post about my BBSHD having intermittent PAS issues, either coming to a stop or even stopping pedaling ie going down a hill, would cause it just to stop working, and your name came up, as maybe you have had the same problem at some point? If so, have you any ideas, and if not, sorry to disturb you.
