  • 08:27, 15 January 2022 diff hist +2,942 N TiresCreated page with "Tires are an absolutely essential part of your e-bike. They determine your handling, braking and even acceleration limits depending on terrain. A good road tire may not be a good offroad tire and visa versa. So with thousands of choices of tires, how do you determine what one is best? Simple, you look for tires that are designed to do what you want without too many trade offs else where. For a e-bike commuter, that is generally go a long distance on road, with some m..." current
  • 08:27, 15 January 2022 diff hist +4,413 N Racks and PanniersCreated page with "Panniers are storage bags for your e-bike. Rear racks and pannier bags are by far the best way to transport things on your e-bike. While backpacks can work the extra weight they put on the rider can be uncomfortable and makes it slightly more difficult to ride. Rear racks come in 2 basic styles. One that mounts off the seat post alone and is generally good for up to 20lbs max and the style that bolts to the frame below the seat and just above the rear dropouts that can..." current
  • 08:26, 15 January 2022 diff hist +1,597 N ConnectorsCreated page with "Connectors are everywhere on an e-bike and are super important to being able to maintain and expand your e-bike. A brief list of common recommended connectors is as follows: *XT90-S: 2 pin, 90A rated. Soldered. Very good connector with anti-spark functionality that reduces/eliminates sparking and erosion of the contacts upon repeated connections. *XT60: 2 pin, 60A rated, Soldered. Very good connector but no anti-spark functionality and hence best only for occasional..." current
  • 08:26, 15 January 2022 diff hist +2,324 N Parallel BatteriesCreated page with "There are two methods you can use to safely parallel batteries. ==Direct connection== To safely parallel batteries directly for more capacity, you must first ensure they are the same chemistry (lipo, li-ion, lifepo4, lead acid, etc) and the same voltage. Never attempt to directly connect batteries in parallel of different chemistries. It is also best if they have a 2 wire BMS (Charge and discharge through the same wires), since otherwise directly cross connecting th..." current
  • 08:26, 15 January 2022 diff hist +2,710 N Tools neededCreated page with "Converting an e-bike is a simple task that only requires a few basic tools. Here is a quick list of what you should expect to need to convert a bike to e-bike. ==Metric Allen keys== Many bike parts are held together by SHCS (Socket head cap screws) that require Allen keys to undo. Metric Allen keys are used on bikes, but you might encounter some e-bike kit that uses imperial somewhere. ==Metric Wrenches== While there are not many bolts on bikes these days, e-bike kit..." current
  • 08:25, 15 January 2022 diff hist +2,579 N MotorCreated page with "==Brushless Motors== Brushless motors for e-bikes are a very mature technology and you can shop just about anywhere and expect to get a very usable motor. Wattage and amperage ratings however can be very strange to say the least and many advertisements bare little resemblance to reality. Many sellers will sell 250W/500W/750W rated motors that greatly exceed those specs, underrated so they can advertise to people looking for a legal motor in their country. Others will..." current
  • 08:21, 15 January 2022 diff hist +1,396 N BatteriesCreated page with "It is very important to only buy high quality lithium ion batteries. Improperly build battery packs can lead to catastrophic fires resulting in loss of property and life. Lithium ion batteries can combust when improperly charged or discharged and can't be extinguished by water. as such there are only a few retailers we are willing to endorse. Its highly recommended to go with these resellers or at least do serious research on who you plan to buy packs from. Do not buy..." current
  • 08:20, 15 January 2022 diff hist +2,743 N Buy a bikeCreated page with "We highly recommend that you get a high quality bike to convert. Don't put a thousand dollars in e-bike hardware on a $200 low quality bike. It may also be unsafe to ride lower quality bikes at the speed that e-bikes very frequently travel at. As such we recommend you check out your local bike shops for a high quality bike. Ideally one with front suspension and disk brakes. Rim brakes if they are the linear-pull/V brake style are ok in fair weather, but if you ever bi..." current
  • 08:20, 15 January 2022 diff hist +2,302 N Motor ControllerCreated page with "Motor controllers are what convert the DC of your battery into 3 phase AC for your motor. They determine the maximum current and hence wattage that goes to your motor and automatically adjust the amount of current sent depending on the throttle settings. Some motor controllers are programmable and have adjustable current limits and other settings while others are fixed. Most e-bike controllers can be used with most motors, however pairing a high power controller with a..." current

All models shipped from the USA unless otherwise noted. Please note that range has been recalculated from a flat 10WH/KM figure, valid for riding at about 25kph (15mph) in an upright position. Expect range to be half that at 40kph (25mph) and one quarter at 60kph (37mph) due to wind resistance increasing at the square of speed. ==Budget list (<$2000)== {|class="wikit..." current
  • 08:20, 15 January 2022 diff hist +1,538 N Pedal Assist (PAS) or torque sensorCreated page with "Which type of pedal assistance should you implement? If you want to ride your e-bike like a bicycle, pedaling but with help, torque sensing is vastly superior. Simple cadence-sensing PAS, as on the BBSHD, simply detects whether or not the pedals are moving, and applies a set amount of power based on which PAS level you've set it to. It's like a cruise control, but in predefined steps, and that only works when you're pedaling or pretending to pedal. Torque-sensing PAS d..." current
  • 08:19, 15 January 2022 diff hist +6,525 N LED LightingCreated page with "Led lighting. a complex subject where the leds range from really good to absolute crap with seemingly little rhyme or reason. I hope to try and answer some of these questions ==Led Size== First off, you might see leds called '5050' or '5630' or '2835' but what do those model numbers mean? Well they are SMD codes for the size of the led in 0.1mm. so a 5630 is 5.6mm x 3.0mm and a 5050 is 5mm x 5mm. 5050 is going to be generally the biggest LED you find commonly and is a..." current
  • 08:19, 15 January 2022 diff hist +1,920 N Hub or Mid driveCreated page with "Question: Hub or Mid drive? Both hub motors and mid drives have pros and cons. In general mid drives are better for steep hills while hub motors are better for flat terrain. There is actually two types of hub motor as well, direct drive and geared. Here is a more detailed pro and con list to help you decide. ==Direct drive hub motor pros:== *Ultra Low maintenance *Easy to install *Regen braking, Gain about 10% more range and reduce brake pad wear significantly. ==Dir..." current

These are the units of measurements for batteries, controllers and motors. Lets dive into what each means in detail: ==Volts== Volts is directly related to max RPM for a given motor. For a given battery voltage will slowly decrease as it discharges (See https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/593205534862082075/620503053178503181/1545991790982-png.png for chart). ==Current== Current (measure..."
  • 08:18, 15 January 2022 diff hist +1,385 N Premade or DIYCreated page with "Premade or DIY, the decision can be tough. Most people don't have any experience in assembling mechanical devices or electrical work. Overall, DIY seems to be the way to go if you can. Many premade bikes use proprietary batteries controllers/shapes and some even use controllers that won't work without the exact same brand battery. a DIY bike can be repaired with off the shelf bike parts and the battery/controller/motor can be replaced with pretty much any other batter..." current

Consider a full face helmet due to the higher speeds e-bikes often travel at. ==Wear proper clothing== Its best to wear long sleeves that cover the elbows, pants that cover the knees and securely laced up..." current
