    Help! Woosh bike battery, need help with mounting frog battery, somewhere somehow, safely

    Oh I'm afraid that's not what I found when I was in the market. I was looking for a 48v battery in the smallest case available. There were numerous batteries available with lower densities, larger cases and less than optimal sizes. There were few sellers, for small case batteries around 14ah...

    Help! Woosh bike battery, need help with mounting frog battery, somewhere somehow, safely

    For small frames There are a number of problems with the current offerings, the first is that most batteries on sale dont use the most energy dense cell options. Most batteries are only offered in standard cases which usually dont fit and even if you can get one to fit it runs up against the...

    Help! Woosh bike battery, need help with mounting frog battery, somewhere somehow, safely

    I was not intending intending to post. I just picked up on those beam rack suggestions, they all looked doubtful. I know with racks generally you have to be careful with clearance in small frames I always double check with stuff like that and you cant trust forums because most people dont seem...

    Help! Woosh bike battery, need help with mounting frog battery, somewhere somehow, safely

    Hi Im late to this but the rear rack solution might have an issue. The rack suggested by Woosh might not be suitable for your bike because of its frame size. Its hard to tell from a pictures for sure but it might foul the rear wheel. The basic idea is sound but topeak make a specific design to...

    Which conversion kit?

    You fail to answer or any proof official body can indeed the fact that you resort to quoting references without any detail whatsoever would suggest that you dont. The bodies may know better but without any evidence they address this issue is unresolved. Your argument is effectively I said it...

    Which conversion kit?

    Your argument seems to be that I know better and that because this is on a piece of paper this must be true and hope that everyone believes it must be relevant. The certificate is not the whole story though is it. Your approach seem to bully rather than argue the point and none of what you have...

    Which conversion kit?

    montwo I have never mentioned the power as I have said before that has been discussed on this forum before its not relevant the assumption is that it will comply in those terms in this case. Assume for argument that the motor concerned is rated at 250w. I have never stated that you cannot...

    Which conversion kit?

    I dont think that is the case and you have not put an argument up that would counter what I have said. I dont see the relevance of your example, there is no law concerning owning a knife, but you can be arrested if you have it on your person in public, that is breaking the law. That is not the...

    Which conversion kit?

    That statement is not really relevant in this case. I have not discussed the power output and I am not going into a discussion on motor power that has been covered many times on this forum. The point is the rule is it must be limited to 15kph if you have the facility to change that, its not...

    Which conversion kit?

    Description of mode here https://m2sbikes.com/adjusting-top-speed/ Legislation here Electric bikes: licensing, tax and insurance - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) Specifically I do not see how you can argue that the ability to change the speed to 45kph is in anyway legal. You are not...

    Which conversion kit?

    Sorry I was looking at this certificate for the Barfang motor https://www.cycloboost.com/media/guide/Certificat CE BBS 250W.pdf , this does not cover the speed. I see now that standard quoted was superseded in 2017. The standard configuration of the motor is with an lcd display that allows the...

    Which conversion kit?

    That document covers the electrical saftey standards, I would not think that it applies specifically to things like the speed setting as such. I would not take that to mean that a motor fitted to a bike with that certification would necessarily comply with all the current e bike regulations.

    This just popped up on my facebook thought id share

    Way Way over priced, tiny battery as well. look at Woosh much better deal bigger batteries and a lot cheaper. The battery specs look suspect to me a 3ah battery 52V is there any way you could build one that would be practical thats 14S single row?

    Hoping I'm doing the right choice Need more advice

    I looked briefly at the DYU ebike website, its not a maker I have heard of however at first sight I would not discount it as there do seem to be actual shops selling these so I would find out the closest and book a test ride. When your there find out what motor type it is cost of replacement/...

    Problem with finding battery/kit to fit small frame 14". Need some help :(

    Looking again at your budget I think you can forget the rack option. I also think the mid drive option is doubtful with regards to your bottom bracket (you should check that). Mid drives tend to be more expensive as well that might be a factor. Lastly with regard to mid drives, you intend to...
