Yes , just checked its 5.2% now they sneaked that past me in the last 12 years! Buggers,Well spotted!!, I think they are bottle tops glued/fixed into grips. Do you remember when it was 5.6% Vol? Happy days
Looks stunning. How I've missed my annual European bike tour holiday this year :-(Today was my last big ride before I return to the uk next week, but it was something a bit special
I’ve now been to the west-most point of Europe and it’s lovely
85km round trip running at 10A max

Now I just need to decide what to do with the bike, leave it here for next time or take the motor kit back to uk and put it on a more suitable bike. Decisions
Have to disagree - I much prefer speed control as used in my (2019) Swytch conversionMy main issue is that the kit has a speed-control system by Lushui, if I was buying again I’d choose a current-control system by KT for better control (and more efficient use of the battery power).
You can switch a KT controller between current control and speed control in the settings.Have to disagree - I much prefer speed control as used in my (2019) Swytch conversion
Up to 9 (OK overkill) fully programmable levels - I just set to ~12.5mph at the start and rarely need to adjust it again.
Use of battery power? - 90 mile ride in the (admittedly flatter areas of the) Cotswolds and less than 100Whr battery used.
Yosepower's current offering of the Lishui is hopeless - 5 unadjustable levels with a high RPM motor means for UK/EU legal use (25kph limit) levels 3,4 and 5 are basically the same = just 2 speed levels???
This is unacceptable IMO and smacks of penny pinching by Yose - either give us the ability to adjust the speed (RPM) levels or (preferably) supply low RPM (201) motors for the markets with 25kph limits.
Given that, KT kit is preferable and I won't be using Yosepower again.
P3=1 is current control and P3=0 is speed control. It's as simple as that.I haven't tried switching my KT controller - I saw it in the LCD3 menu but wasn't sure if the controller needed to match before it worked - are you sure about this?
Agreed but the difference is that between the relatively 'flat' Cotswolds and the very unflat Exmoor where I live the PAS setting for speed control is the same - set to 12.5mph and leave it. On a flat or reasonably undulating terrain I wouldn't use the e-bikes anyway.
Around here where it is a constant up and down, 'pushing a button' is a virtually continuous activity - high assist to get up the hills and then back down again. It's a bit like driving an automatic v manual car - if you like fiddling around then fine, I don't, but each to their own.
Wasting power whilst accelerating is a fair (though very minor) point against speed control but must be balanced against the unnecessary waste of power before turning the assist off when not needed - with speed control it's automatic.
