    I had a similar shimmy on my Actionbent T1 trike set to the correct toe-in. I cured the problem for the last 1000miles by leaving a greased o-ring around the fork steerers, just under the headset...

    I would keep it simple with a nice rear direct drive brushless hub motor on the back, and dual battery packs under the seat. I have a Nine Continent motor on both a Catrike Road and an Actionbent T1....

    The Halls are low power sensors in brushless motors, either geared or ungeared, which tell the controller what rotational state the motor is in, so the phases can fire correctly to get the motor...

    Take all internet advice with a grain of salt.

    Your motor is most likely a three phase brushless hub motor, with either Hall sensors or no Hall sensors. Either way, it cannot be run without a...

    I'm getting one next week. I'll be using it on three different battery types - Ping, Headway, and LiMn13S. This will be super useful for a 48V mixed battery type guy - I'll be able to put 7 amps into...

    It will be no comparison between Lead-Acid and LiFP04. Lead acid suffers from the "Peukert effect", and voltage drops very rapidly across the discharge. The lithium has a very flat discharge curve...

    I run both Ping battery packs and Headway packs. I find the Headways are a bit saggier voltage-wise, and a bit heavier. The Headway packs are easier to maintain, as you can fairly easily take the...

    I think those look like a nice comfortable ride. I have a Townie D7 Fat Franks with Crystalyte DD hub front hub motor, and would think it is a similar ride. I do like having seven gears though. I...

    I think that ODK is a very sweet ride for multi-purpose urban. Lots of torque. But I think you will find that the speed is lacking somewhat, probably topping out in the low twenty MPH range. If I had...

    With my controller, a Cute 100 (nominally a 250W motor), at 48V, it will put out about 700watts, as my controller has a maximum amperage it can supply of 15 amps. (Ignore the 250 nominal - it doesn't...

    The battery you indicate on ebay is apparently rated at around 8c continuous, so you could possibly pull 10 amps out of one of them, continuously, since it is a 1.3 Amp Hour battery (1300 mAhr)....

    Tohot, you seem to have the misconception that the nominal power rating of a motor has anything to do with how much power it can put out <at least for a short time>. A "500 watt motor", can easily...

    I had a rear Bafang on my Cattrike running 48v Headway - it was very torquey but the low top end speed in the 20" rear wheel was too low for me. I switched it out for 2805 Nine Continent direct drive...

    One generally does get a spark when you connect a battery to a controller, as the capacitors in the controller fill up quickly and suck juice out of the battery. Is this what you are worried about?...
