No didn’t know about cassette vs freewheel I thought cassette was the cogs, thought they were all same.
I’ve had a look online and by the looks of it if the inner hole is rounded it’s freewheel and if it’s splined then it’s cassette, that right.
Can’t check bike till night but this is same...
Ok was planning on buying kit
Got a bike was advertised as 24 speed (3x8) went and double Checked and it’s 21 speed (3x7) seller says can’t use it and I can’t get a 7 cassette elsewhere to fit to his kit.
Any other kits that are like this but fit 7...
Ok contacted seller he gave me link to following with battery:
My only concern is it says thumb throttle available to 6kph - does this mean after 6 it’s only pedal assist - was hoping to get a kit that could be used just on electric only?
Looks to be...
D8veh you got any links to the eBay kits you said was good so I know what to look for? Typed in geared but nothing comes up.
And by geared do you mean a wheel that has the 7/8 cogs that allow you to change gears on a normal bike?
Haven’t got bike yet as was thinking get kit first that way I can pick up bike to suit.
Weight 9 stone so very light.
To be honest it’s mainly flat where I stay there’s a few hills but mainly going to be used on flat.
Distance we’ll be happy with charging say every 15-20 mile but obviously if...
Ok not got a bike yet thought it would be best to get a kit then get s bike.
Is my budget realistic say £400 max for kit and battery?
Doesn’t need to be 1000w happy with 20mph ish on flat so would I best look at 250-500w, trrrain will be mainly flat but will have some hills.
Any vendors or...
Looking at building 500/1000w e bike conversion kit.
Seen this kit on ebay reviews look good:
Says min battery needed...
right one last question before I purchase, will the kit take a bike with a rear disc brake? and also what is the max gears it will take, I have read up to 7 (so 3x7, 21 speed) cogs at the back so stay away from 8 and 9 cog bikes, is this right?
I need higher power as I'm quite busy so want the commute time to be as short as possible.
If I get a bike that I can fit one of those batteries in the frame then am I good to go, just the kit and the battery nothing else needed?
Only other question I have is do I need 15ah or 20ah what sort...
Looking at these 2 options if the standard lithium ones are ok, would they be suitable
48v 15ah 4.3kg 30-60a $309
48v 20ah 6kg 50-100a $419...
OK so for bike steel frame and disc brakes.
I take it with gears/suspension is OK and the alu bikes is it because they are too soft? And as long as the battery fits in the frame I should be OK?
What about the kit which one looks better (personally I think the BMS one) and do they come complete...
Also forgot to advise had been looking at this kit also:
Is this a better kit than what I had looked at and if so does it come complete with everything I need (except bms battery) and if so will it be...
Been reading the forum for the last month or so trying to gather up as much info on this as I can and have decided to register as I am now looking to purchase the parts required to build my e-bike.
I haven't purchased a bike yet so was looking to get a secondhand geared alu framed...
