DIY Bike and Trike Plans


Electric peddle assist

Rate this Entry
Hi I have built the Street Fox trike and like riding it. I recently bought a rear motor for the bike to electrify it. The kit came with a motor, controller, hand breaks, and the Peddle assist.
My question is will the peddle assist work without a signal from an lcd display that did not come with the kit? The kit is from costway model SP35448 with very poor instructions. I understand that I would not be able to change to different assist modes without an LCD controller but will it work at all?

Anyone done this before?
Thanks for any input.

    Most of these controllers require a lcd to be fitted or some hard wiring to replace it - as the swictch is via the lcd there is a minimum of 2 wires to fit .

    It should work in basic form - BMS battery in china supply a good system ( LESS HUB ) with LCD at a sensible price - I bought 2 sets from them as it reduced carraige .
