    Making mid drive, help required.

    I thought 18a was max on the bbs01 but guess it depends on supplier. I wouldnt risk 20a on a bbs01 personally. In fact I run my bbs02 at 21a when it can be programmed for 25a

    Best 6v direct wire light

    Evening folks Been a long time since I was last here, it was a pre C word world! I finally upgraded my controller to one with a 6v light output. I'd be grateful for the forums views on a suitable front light. I realise this 6v feed is weak but it should be fine for being seen. I have...

    UK - legality of thumb-throttles in DIY conversions

    But what happens if you take the battery out of Mando ? Does the functional pedal really generate enough to power the motor /bike ? I guess they must or i struggle to see how the mando has functional pedals in any true sense.

    UK - legality of thumb-throttles in DIY conversions

    Oh gosh, I thought I knew this but this thread confuses me I believed full 15.5 mph throttle was legal as long as 1. It’s a conversion, not a factory built 2. The pedals must be turning for the throttle to work Is this wrong ?

    How to remove speed limit - just bought my 1st ebike

    Pretty sure he means connectors . There is no real standard with these Chinese controllers so , for example, the Lcd connector on this may be different from any replacement You either need to solder direct or replace the connectors I think, if D8veh can cos it’s beyond me, to manage some...

    Fat people discrimination

    I think this is needless semantics to avoid the nub* of the matter tbh You know the difference between choice and discrimination really. And the point over what defines "best" is pure distraction technique (can't fault your application though :) Choice is choosing the high quality candidate...

    Fat people discrimination

    I agree with the more cloth, more cost, pay more. Simple economics However , I wholeheartedly disagree with your analogy that suggests a personal choice in which sex to date is in anyway akin to discrimination in the workplace . You confuse choice with discrimination I choose a red car over a...

    BBS02 Tuning for Muppets....Dillenger Switcheroonie.

    Simple answer , yes. Massively You can keep 25a max current but change the individual pas settings. Mine starts at, I think 40%, on pas1 and up to 100% on 9 That’s 40% of 25a . The drain on my 11.6ah Panasonic PF celled battery is very noticeable . Both in terms of sag and also range
