My bike has been stuck at my holiday home through lock down. I got it out at the weekend to find the pedals stuck. It’s a Marin Stinson with a GSM mid drive conversion. I’m going to try and remove everything today. Is there anything specific I should look for? The motor is fine and turns the...
I remember reading a little while ago about some really light weight Hub motors from China. I think they were around 1kg. I’m keen to try a really light weight conversion can anyone comment on the longevity of these motors, could they be paired with a Hoverboard battery (36V 4.4mAh), small...
Where would the suggested place be for the controller. I’m now thinking of converting my husbands bike too with a rear hub and one of these small batteries. He’s not sure what sort of range he needs, so I like the idea of being able to add a second one later.
The bike would be a specialized hard...
i need to fit a battery to the rear rack. As you can see from the link the bike has very high bottle mounting points. https://www.marinbikes.com/gb/bike-archive/bikes/2017-stinson-step-thru
Would it be crazy to try and mount a bottle battery to the rear rack? I would like the battery to be...
I’m very happy with my kit from woosh, excellent support from them from this forum. I only had basic knowledge of bike mechanics when I fitted it, it was fairly straight forward. That was a GSM mid drive kit. It’s been very reliable over the last two years.
Can the controller be hidden in the battery box (rack battery)? My current mid drive has an inbuild controller.
The xiondga looks like it may be a safer buy than the keyde, but would leave me with a controller to mount somewhere.
The bike is a Marin Stinson step through, so not many good...
These are the options she sent
Thanks for the replies. I’m now thinking a front hub would probably be the easiest option as I could change the wheel back over.
I’m thinking I will need to build the wheel (or have it built) as it’s 27.5”.
I want it to be road legal so a 250w motor. There seem to be loads on eBay but all...
id really like to convert my second bike but be able to put it back easily. My original has a gsm mid drive which is fab (most of the time).
If I went for a front hub motor could I swap the wheel for a non motorised one easily?
