    Bosch Motor shutdown, Error 503, get you home only.

    It should just fool the motor into thinking you're going at half speed in a lower gear. I.E. pedals and motor going twice as fast, just like they would be when climbing a hill.

    Bosch Motor shutdown, Error 503, get you home only.

    If you want to trick the speed sensor use an 74H73 IC to build a divide by 2 or 4 circuit for less than £2. Only a couple of jumpers needed and it runs off a 5v supply. You'd need to check the output waveform voltage from the hall device to make sure its within the operating range (about 0 to...

    Lockdown

    Love Louis and especially his e Bike rides around NYC. Have you seen the one shot on a Saturday night when all of Manhattan was on lockdown? Compulsive viewing.

    Electric Lights - connected to VLCD 5 ontroller or direct to battery

    On second thought, is it worth the trouble? I think not. https://tinyurl.com/yx7vk93n

    Electric Lights - connected to VLCD 5 ontroller or direct to battery

    Well what do you expect to pay for a must have fashion item? It's got an Apple on it mind. This is just one of the many videos which exposes Apples utter contempt for it's loyal fans.

    Electric Lights - connected to VLCD 5 ontroller or direct to battery

    Lots of choice there. This one looks good, but I think I may have the bits to make a small switch mode PSU, and if so it'll be another diversion during the lockdown.

    Lighting

    I have no lighting at present and I would like to know what type of lighting would you recommend for my EPAC? I see lots of options out there, so links would be appreciated. Pete

    Lockdown

    Same here. Seldom see anyone and when you do they are as keen to stay clear of you, as you are of them. However there was one exception yesterday when a couple walking on the foot/cycle path walked either side of the path so I has to go between them. They may have been keeping two meters apart...

    Handgrip Removal And Replacement

    I think it may be a hint that squirting some propane in there and setting it alight will cause an explosion in the confined space. I'm a little apprehensive as when I was a teenager, a friend packed handlebars with some sugar and oxidiser and set the mixture alight. He still has the scars in his...

    Handgrip Removal And Replacement

    I thought I might have a problem replacing the grips on my handlebars until I followed the online instructions. Whoever thought it would be so easy. Using method: This do set of wall with antiskid and catch hair design, install, the handlebar on water surface, the set of wall with water...

    Hacking firmware.

    I did some tests I think I should have read the Woosh documentation first and saved myself a load of time. I may have switched on the unit with my foot on a pedde and not let it calibrate first. Only thing I can think of really because its ok now, fingers firmly x'ed. Great weather at last...

    Petition to legalizing throttle only eBikes for the disabled

    I heard an item on talkRadio last week saying they were expecting e Scooters to be legalised. If that is the case I would assume it would enhance this matter. Although, at the moment, everything is on hold.

    Hacking firmware.

    Although its been just seven days, with all that's going on it seems much longer. I did a quick test today. Wired up an ammeter to the battery and did the test. Before I even looked at the meter I knew everything was back to normal. Drawing about 16 amps on acceleration and moderate hill...

    Hacking firmware.

    Thanks for the info. I think I may have a more pressing problem. It feels like the power only comes on when the torque is being applied to the left hand peddle. The motor hum is not constant. I'm going to measure the current and see what the results are. I should have bought the kit from...
