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?
