36 Volt SX Iacocca EBike HELP
My brother had a 36 Volt SX Iacocca Ebike that was just sitting for several years - he gave it to me and I've been riding it for a year (replaced the battery with the battery replacement from NYCE wheels and bought new tires). It's been great - but now when I apply the throttle, there is a whine from the back hub and no power to the wheel.
Can anybody help me out with advice on what's wrong & how to fix it (if possible)? I was riding to work everyday and riding for pleasure also - this is a big loss for me. I can't afford a new ebike and really want to get this one fixed. I had lost about 40 lbs. (I can't ride up the hills on a regular bike, not in good enough shape). I don't want to just start taking the bike apart, as I don't know what I''m doing.
If it's not fixable, is there a place that buys old Ebikes for parts? It's in great shape, aside from the problem with the hub.
