Do we have to install the brake cut-off sensors? 

It’s not a mandatory by regulations to install brake cut-off sensors.  The sensors are for emergency incidents in cases when you brake abruptly - they’ll cut off the motor’s power. With pedal assist systems, you may not be as quick to squeeze the brake levers. In regular brakes you may need to have this as [...]

Is the EbikeBC geared from motor kit -motor noisy?

Generally when ebike motors are in use, there will be a slight noise. Noise occurs when you’re switching controls, partially because of the gears and magnets are cogging against each other, which is inevitable. The gears are made of Nylon, and have increased its width by 20% compared to the original design. This is to [...]

Why should you go for a front hub motor?

95% of our customers choose front hub motor because it’s easy to install and maintain.  They perform better on slippery roads, even on snow.  Compared to a rear hub motor, you’ll save the headache of visiting a bike mechanic to place in spacers and the derailleur adjustment.  Our 350w and 500W geared hub motors are [...]

Is it dangerous to have the motor on the front fork?

That depends on whether you’ve done your due diligence.  Here are the reasons why hub motor fail, and why forks, regardless from steel or alloy, break:  1- Forcing the axle into the drop out and causing pre stress. 2- Inappropriate order or direction of washers or locking washers. 3- Insufficient bolts torque or not providing [...]

Is it safe to install motor on alloy or steel front forks?

Typically, yes.  Whether it’s made of alloy or steel, bike forks are designed for severe working conditions. They’re prepared for road shocks and hard braking. The amount of stress from motor axle torque is negligible compared to other loading scenarios. However, it’s your responsibility to inspect the fork and headset for any crack or defect [...]

What do parameters like Torque (Nm) mean for ebikes?

Motor Torque is the characteristic which reflects the traction (thrust) and is important for climbing up hills.  The traction force equals Torque divided by wheel radius (F=T/R).  The more torque at the wheel gives you a higher grade-ability.  The smaller wheel diameter gives a higher traction force or climb-ability with same motor torque. The torque [...]
