A back rack battery is an appealing location if not destabilizingly heavy or stressful on the rear fork. U have to test ride one to see, but allow for the very real chance of needing a bigger battery than the crap usually supplied with otherwise ok bikes
To keep the mid drive motor operating efficiently you need to be shifting the gears properly for climbing hills or cruising along the flats. If you are used to shifting the gears properly on a conventional bike then this is nothing new.
Thanks for the response and the information. Turns out Lincoln, NE has a ban on e-bikes but Omaha doesn’t so I’m glad I asked a friend. Still need to save money and batteries for e bike look into the different kits out there.
For most of the medium power ebikes I build though, I don’t need controllers that are as nice as the Lyen and EM3EV controllers. I can get away with something a third of the price. I’ve been quite happy with this controller on some 72V ebikes I’ve built.
My wife, for example, is quite comfortable on her 24V, 250 watt ebike. This is a very low powered electric bicycle, but she only weighs about 110 lbs (50 kg) and we live in a flat city, so she doesn’t have to worry about hills. If we lived in a hilly area, she’d likely need closer to 350-400 watts of power, which could better be achieved by an ebike with a 36V battery. An electric bicycle with a 36V battery and 12A controller would output a peak power of 432 watts (36V x 12A = 432W) which would be plenty to scoot her up a decent sized hill.

A few years ago I bought a vintage peddle-cab for transporting my mother in law around, as she has to be on oxygen. We love it, and it is great, however, it only has one gear, so the slightest hill can be a challenge. I’m hopeful to add an electric motor to this bike this winter. Myself, my daughter and a neighborhood kid would like to build this in the back room of my house. So far I think I need a mid-drive motor and 24V lithium batteries. I looked at your recommendations here, which one would you recommend for my peddle-cab? Also I am looking for user friendly and economical. Any helpful suggestions in this project would be greatly appreciated!
[…] kit or a hub motor? (For a relatively concise website that breaks down the differences, head here. Maybe I should have got the rocket version?) Anyways, by the time I thought I had the answer, […]
Everything promised came only two days after ordering. After making the final decision about which bike to install it on, I decided to put it on my Mongoose Impasse. The Impasse is a 29er, however, I took off the 29″ rims and replaced them with 26’s. This gave me much more travel when it comes to dips, pot holes and uneven pavement. Plus it’s full suspension with disc brakes. … full review

It’s an electric brushless 240W hub motor and removable rechargeable battery (36V 130Wh). There’s even a USB outlet to charge your devices on the go. Connect with their app to view live speed, distance, and other information.
Based on everything you wrote, I believe that both the Bosch or Brose motor system would be a good fit. I have owned one of each and appreciate their wider cadence range. You get shift sensing with Bosch but it sounds like you understand how shifting works given your nice carbon road bike… the Brose is a bit quieter and gentler feeling. Perhaps it comes down to which models appeal to you and fit your body size. I didn’t see your height there? Either motor system would be capable of moving your standard 165 lb body.
running 2 hubs from one controller is possible, you must make sure that the motor controller can effectively power your hubs. for example if you had 2 hub motors that were 48v and 500w each you would need a motor controller that is able to output 48v 1000w. The hubs also have to be set for the same voltage, the wattage could differ from hubs but not recommended, its best to use 2 hubs that are the same. a good controller to use is the one offered by goldenmotor (canada), it works with 24,36,48v hubs and goes up to 1000w continuous or 1500w peak the controller is also programmable, also allows for regen. also make sure your battery can handle the current draw.
It’s what’s inside your motor that sets it apart from the rest. Quality parts and assembly We’ve written here before about how to choose a motor, the different types of motors, the performance differences between motors, etc. But today I want to show you what makes our motors different from other hub motors. Today, harry is replacing the axle on a customer’s direct-drive motor. The bike was crashed and the…
Like the Dapu motor used on BH Easy Motion bikes, the TDCM drive does not have a torque sensor built into it. Stromer uses a TMM4 torque sensor built into the rear dropout. Unlike the Dapu motor, however, the Ultra Motor hub does have a specially configured controller built into the hub.
Fundamentally, unlike ICEs, the most limiting and ~expensive part of a good ebike is the total amount and the rate at which fuel can be delivered to the motor. Ie, the ebikes battery specs. Recent advances in batteries have made the marriage of very old and only incrementally altered tech into a world beating device for mankind.
Almost every person to whom we introduced our Smart Wheel idea liked it much more than buying a traditional E-bike. To achieve our mission of getting more people enjoy the fun and convenience of E-bikes while saving resources of the planet, our biggest stumbling block is spreading the word about our product. Crowdfunding is the most effective way of getting the word out.

Any electric bicycle could use any of these sensor types (or multiple sensors like throttle and cadence sensing assist) but Class 1 only allows for assist while Class 2 allows for throttle and assist. So it’s not a matter of linking motors with sensors and input types (even though some motors only work with specific sensors) it’s a matter of how the manufacturer built the bike and which control systems they chose. All Bosch driven bikes use a combination of cadence, wheel motor and torque… Some BionX use a trigger throttle and a torque sensor. Hope this helps

Thanks for reaching out, I’ll contact you via email. To answer your question, I’ve got a lot of experience buying from other North American ebike vendors but Luna was created less than a year ago – after I had already moved to Tel Aviv. Most of your ebike parts wouldn’t pass customs here so I simply haven’t had the chance to review your parts. This is definitely not an exhaustive list – it’s simply a list of the parts that I’ve used and found to be of good quality and price. You have good prices, but since I haven’t used your parts yet I can’t really write about their quality. In the future if I’m back stateside then I hope to get a chance to use your parts. Until then I’ve been reading some good things about your stuff on electricbike-blog.com!
K have a frount wheel hub electric motore system with a throttle control and I live it , Large battery in mid section.Its is the best bike I’ve owned and I’m 57.Only wish it could be solar powered so it would have infaite range (the battery is the limiter). :>.

I’ve had good luck with Bulls and Haibike but any frame manufacturer that gets to work with Bosch or Brose is going to be good. Easy Motion has a couple models now with Brose. If possible, try to buy from your local shop so they can fit you and offer warranty support. Do you know what brands they carry? I’d say, pick one based on pictures, special order the correct size and go in to pick it up… when you go, have the shop also order a riser or even rise + swept-back bar and maybe some ergonomic grips. Get a Thudbuster or BodyFloat or the Suntour NCX seat post suspension in the correct size and have them fit you. You could swap tires too but I love riding knobby tires even on the road, they a huge difference on dirt and it sounds like you spend some time on surfaces like that.
The Dapu motor does not have a torque sensor or controller built into it. Thus, on a bike like the BH Neo, the torque sensor is designed into the rear dropout, and the controller is attached to the frame behind the battery.
