    Review Bafang BBS01b 250w DIY fitting - traps, pitfalls and review

    Sugru comes in small sachet's so one wastes very little. When I attached the brake sensor I also moulded some around the inlet and outlet of the gear sensor too as a precaution against water/dirt ingress. The advantage over epoxy is that it you can mould it into whatever shape you desire and it...

    Review Bafang BBS01b 250w DIY fitting - traps, pitfalls and review

    Absolutely, just have a look on youtube. I've also used it attach mini DRL's to a motorcycle and extend a mudguard on the emtb.

    Review Bafang BBS01b 250w DIY fitting - traps, pitfalls and review

    I recently fitted a brake some hydraulic brake cut off's with Sugru, it's very versatile stuff and perfect for something like this.

    Another mid drive

    It is about time the gearbox was integrated with the motor. Current e-bikes remind me of vintage motorcycles when they had separate engines and gearboxes....imho

    Climbing Hills with a BBS01

    I made an error in my previous post, the second part should read "Next I put the keep current down to 50% and the "rev limit" for levels 1-5 to 80% and this feels really really good." I am not trying to change the max rev limit of the motor, just trying to not be limited or restricted to lower...

    Climbing Hills with a BBS01

    I an also exploring programming my BBS01 because in level 5 and below I kept on running into the motor "speed limit" (I really think it should be called a "rev limit") First I tried upping the keep current to 100% but this just seemed to add power everywhere and the rev limit cut off was still...

    Tyre advice please

    I use Schwalbe Land Cruiser's on a full suspension converted emtb as I ride on both road and tracks, they are good enough off road and great on road and come in a range widths.

    Voodoo Zobop 2016 conversion to electric .

    The only potential issue is the 73mm width of the bottom bracket, the second locknut only just engages so it needed loctite. I'm not sure if this is good practice being newish to this, but I also put some blue loctite (semi permanent) inside the bottom bracket to take up the small amount of...

    Voodoo Zobop 2016 conversion to electric .

    That looks very interesting, I see you have reversed the shock...neat. I almost bought a large size but was concerned about the stand over height. Have you a better photo showing the battery in the frame please?

    Voodoo Zobop 2016 conversion to electric .

    It's a Bafang 250w with a 17Ahr battery and a 42t Precialps chainring, it helps with gearing and chain alignment. I have thought of a triangle battery but so far the underslung mount has been fine. Range wise it varies a lot depending on terrain but 60-70 miles is very very easy with mixed...

    Voodoo Zobop 2016 conversion to electric .

    I did my Zobop about 18 mths ago and it has been great. Depending what size frame battery you have (mine is a medium) you may have to mount the battery under the down tube, there is a theoretical clash of wheel and battery dependant on fork pressure but in 1000 miles of on and off road there...

    Programming Lead Com Port Problem

    Good news. A lead from another supplier arrived today and it all worked first time :):) This was the lead ebay 282891248569 for anyone interested. Have now read, saved and made one small change to the keep current(and checked it was saved on the controller) so now just have to decide what to...

    Programming Lead Com Port Problem

    Yes totally agree Nealh, however I do enjoy twiddling the spanners and it has been very enjoyable building the Ebike which has been faultless for over 1000 miles....so far...but it is the electronic twiddling that is the problem for me. Also I still find it hard to justify the prices being...
