The video shows a:The MAC is very similar to a BPM. It'll make the same torque and power with the same voltage, current and winding speed. This is the video for those that think hub-motors can't climb hills:
this is a picture of the pre-production sample. The production bike has a new LCD, sensored hydraulic brakes, 8-speed and Pioneer 42T forged alloy crankset. Better tyres and saddle too.Do you have a picture and a price?
I don't agree with what you're implying, whatever that is, but I had 500w BPMs for a couple of years as my main transport. I can confirm that 30% hills are absolutely no problem with 36v and 30 amps. I weigh 100kg, and those bikes had 6kg batteries.The video shows a:
1500w geared motor with a rider pedalling hard until the hill shallows out and the hill is a 20% average grade according to strava not 30%
No one really thinks hubs can't climb but a legal mid drive will climb steeper with less effort and at a lower speed with the correct gearing and also be able to have a decent top speed.
For the average user a powerful legal hub with pedal assist on steep hills will be magic and easier to ride as the gear you are in isn't critical at start up and you have smooth easy gear shifts easier than a "normal bike" for gear changes from my experience.
Right, does this share the same motor as the Crusa?this is a picture of the pre-production sample. The production bike has a new LCD, sensored hydraulic brakes, 8-speed and Pioneer 42T forged alloy crankset. Better tyres and saddle too.
Oh, thumb throttle, not that shiny twist throttle.
