    E-Bike Rolling Road !!

    In past videos the presenter does and continues to push the dialog along far too quickly for most and details are missed etc. but it is usually fun to watch.

    E-Bike Rolling Road !!

    I saw this on my YouTube feed and thought it may be of interest..... and a bit of fun once testing starts. Ray, who made the rolling road, is a bit of a tinkerer and has done a few conversions before.

    Help! BBS01 help required with programming

    I had a similar problem a short while ago, the original seller even sent a replacement lead which still did not work so I tried the one in Fordulike's post and it worked a treat.

    Rechargeable heated gloves

    The best way to keep anything warm is to keep the wind off. Motorcyclists have been using the bar mitts for years with great results and often can wear summer gloves in the depths of winter with bar mitts to protect the hands. I would try a pair of mitts like these as long as they have a...

    Chain Durability 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 speed

    Thanks for the reply. Normally with mechanical items as long as the component is not overloaded and breaks, a increased load leads to increase wear so find it hard to dismiss the test results. I agree that the loads will be higher with a mid drive ebike but how much higher is down to endless...

    Chain Durability 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 speed

    I'm still fairly new to ebiking so please forgive me if this has been covered before, a quick search didn't reveal much. There have been several posts saying that chain drives with a lower number of speeds are more robust as the chain is wider and will last longer. However, a bit of Googling...

    Review Bafang BBS01b 250w DIY fitting - traps, pitfalls and review

    Yes, my ebike conversion has also got me back into cycling too, it is a great match for hilly West Wales. I must admit I didn't fit hydraulic brake sensors for over a year, the brakes were fine and easily able to overcome the momentary drive after stopping peddling. However, I was finding that...

    Review Bafang BBS01b 250w DIY fitting - traps, pitfalls and review

    I have also used metal epoxy, same as JB weld I think, a few times and always carry some when on a motorcycle trip, very handy stuff. My ebike conversion has a "pad" of it between the Bafang motor and the downtube to help spread any load transmitted to the frame. Being solid it should prevent...

    Review Bafang BBS01b 250w DIY fitting - traps, pitfalls and review

    Sugru comes in small sachet's so one wastes very little. When I attached the brake sensor I also moulded some around the inlet and outlet of the gear sensor too as a precaution against water/dirt ingress. The advantage over epoxy is that it you can mould it into whatever shape you desire and it...

    Review Bafang BBS01b 250w DIY fitting - traps, pitfalls and review

    Absolutely, just have a look on youtube. I've also used it attach mini DRL's to a motorcycle and extend a mudguard on the emtb.

    Review Bafang BBS01b 250w DIY fitting - traps, pitfalls and review

    I recently fitted a brake some hydraulic brake cut off's with Sugru, it's very versatile stuff and perfect for something like this.

    Another mid drive

    It is about time the gearbox was integrated with the motor. Current e-bikes remind me of vintage motorcycles when they had separate engines and gearboxes....imho

    Climbing Hills with a BBS01

    I made an error in my previous post, the second part should read "Next I put the keep current down to 50% and the "rev limit" for levels 1-5 to 80% and this feels really really good." I am not trying to change the max rev limit of the motor, just trying to not be limited or restricted to lower...

    Climbing Hills with a BBS01

    I an also exploring programming my BBS01 because in level 5 and below I kept on running into the motor "speed limit" (I really think it should be called a "rev limit") First I tried upping the keep current to 100% but this just seemed to add power everywhere and the rev limit cut off was still...

    Tyre advice please

    I use Schwalbe Land Cruiser's on a full suspension converted emtb as I ride on both road and tracks, they are good enough off road and great on road and come in a range widths.

    Voodoo Zobop 2016 conversion to electric .

    The only potential issue is the 73mm width of the bottom bracket, the second locknut only just engages so it needed loctite. I'm not sure if this is good practice being newish to this, but I also put some blue loctite (semi permanent) inside the bottom bracket to take up the small amount of...

    Voodoo Zobop 2016 conversion to electric .

    That looks very interesting, I see you have reversed the shock...neat. I almost bought a large size but was concerned about the stand over height. Have you a better photo showing the battery in the frame please?

    Voodoo Zobop 2016 conversion to electric .

    It's a Bafang 250w with a 17Ahr battery and a 42t Precialps chainring, it helps with gearing and chain alignment. I have thought of a triangle battery but so far the underslung mount has been fine. Range wise it varies a lot depending on terrain but 60-70 miles is very very easy with mixed...
