    Ever heard of this company?

    Hi all, im thinking about converting a mountain bike into an e bike for 20 km round trips (16 miles for you americans, i live in australia haha) and while looking around on ebay i stumbled upon this kit which sounded perfect to me. 24v 200w, im going to pedal the whole time but i need a bit of extra push because most of the way 1 way is uphill. 200w is also the maximum wattage e bikes can have without needing registration.

    The website is http://www.conhismotor.com/ and i was wondering if anyone has ever heard of it? or better yet heard things about it? The kit is fairly cheap, the closest thing in australia is 200w brush motors for about 600 aussie dollars which is way too much in my opinion.

    Any feedback about that company would be appreciated as well as any alternatives.

    Conhismotor is the most expensive motor in China and the highest quality kit in China. Its also the most used kit on the planet all across China, central/south America and all of old Russia. Its the only hub kit I build with. Solid everything. Everything inside the motor is riveted well. Wiring is strong and well done. The controlers are top notch. My only complaint with these kits is some of the connecters they use. I rewire everything myself and waterproof it all so its no big deal but for some people thats a bit of work.

    Conhismotor stopped selling brushed kits from my understanding. The new kits are perfectly centered and balanced with better controlers imo. I wouldnt touch a hub without it being brushless.

    IMO its the best kit when it comes to performance and value in a gearless/brushless hub.

    Nothing in common with Goldenmotor. All you have to do is take one of each kit apart and you will see what I mean...

    Oh btw you can order directly from Conhismotor on the site. No need to ebay with them. Its a tad cheaper as well. If you want a disk brake kit you will need to ebay it however. The kits floating around use a beefy caliper and disc. They are pretty good.

    The controler is 28amp with no regen on this kitat 48v/1000w. I dont have the regen amps because I find those controlers to be far less reliable and I want my builds to above all things be problem free. I love the controlers to death. They are always cool. Even on agresssive uphill battles they are barely warm to the touch. My only complaint is the wire sizing. Typical of China products they pinch every penny and this the wiring is exactly the right size. Dont worry I have never melted anything and the stock wiring does wonderfull.

    I find the Conhismotor kits to be VERY power friendly.

    JerseyEbiker, you sound like you have a lot of experience with conhismotor.com. Do you happen to know if they actually manufacture the motors they show on their website, particularly the ones painted black? They seem to be the more powerful of the various motors they offer.

    Several vendors seem to sell motors that look exactly like the ones (the black ones) on the conhismotor site. I wonder if more than one company is making motors that happen to look exactly identical? Or, seems more likely to me that most of those vendors are buying the motor from whatever company makes it, and reselling it.

    I bought a 48V 1000W kit from YXM in China, whose pictures in their ads showed a motor with three silver bands around it. That motor also appeared to be wider than the conhismotor motors. But when the box arrived a few days ago, I was surprised to find a narrower motor, completely black with no silver bands, that looks exactly like the black ones on the conhismotor.com site.

    In the past the folks at YXM had told me they manufactured their own motors, which I assumed meant the wider ones, black with three silver bands. None of the other vendors I queried, claimed to manufacture that motor. But now this narrower black motor with no bands, and with what appears to be a screw-on disc brake mount, shows up. I wonder if YXM is making the three-band one, but also buying the no-band one from whoever makes it?

    Who makes those black motors (with no silver bands) shown on the conhismotor.com website?

    Thanks guys, just what i wanted to hear. Im surprised this forum doesnt have more mention about conhismotor even though its used in so many places. Now im just wondering, this question is targeted to those people that use this kit, if there has been any problems hows the customer service at conhismotor? I think im gonna choose this brand because its one of the only 24v 200w kits and and you guys said the quality is good and id like to know i can get any problems resolved over the phone as the company is based in china.

    Thanks again guys.

    YXM has been reselling other brands from day one. They are famous for using the same motor for all 12v-48v hubs when it actauly is a YXM motor. At 48v and 500++ watts they are being over powered. They often run hot and are prone to failure. Its a gamble with YXM imo. Most of the time depending on what they have in stock you just get a different controler. To my knowledge the casing that houses the 48v/1000w all black from Conhismotor is only made and used by Conhismotor. I would take a few pictures of it and send it to them and see what they say.

    I buy directly from Conhismotor. When I buy a kit with the disc brake setup I ebay it from a Conhis motor rep. The last kit I ordered came with a regen controler. I ordered a normal controler. I emailed them on a tuesday at 6pm eastern and by thursday at 2pm I had a tracking number for the new controler along with an appoligy from a conhis motor rep. The only number they list is in China so I would say there is no phone support. However they are very VERY fast to reply and will do anything to make you happy. All they require in most cases is a pic of the item in question. I give there service and A+++ and with no phone support thats a very rare thing for myself.

    1st buy (48V, 1000W) from Conhismotor last night and yes, they seem to be available for prompt replies overnight in USA. Will let y'all know how it goes but it looks like very promising source?

    The plan is to power a Sidewalker Willy - 20" wheel.
