POLEMIC – How to shift gears in your mid-drive ebike and prevent motor degradation?
The topic around gear shifting on electric bikes equipped with mid-drive motors made some people lose their hair, including me. So to avoid that happening to you, I’ve created a series of 3 #YouTube videos to help you better understand the gear shifting of ebikes with mid-motors.
To Begin with, I ask you to watch “How to shift gears on a Mid-drive Ebike”. In this video, I explain how a high-performance rider will extract most of its motor without causing damage to it. Other tricks, like brake sensor instead of gear sensor, have also been explained.
In the sequence, I present the “Bafang BBS Motors The Most Common Problems of These Mid Drive Motors”. Where I stripped down many Bafang BBS motors and showed their intrinsic value. Everything that the black covers hide from you, and I tried my best to make you avoid the mistakes I’ve seen in the past.
Finally, the last video of the series. After collecting feedback from hundreds of viewers, I had to do something to bring light to all spectators. So I went to the drawing board to show why and how the gears should be shifted, leaving behind the myth that “it doesn’t matter the gear you’re at, just throttle a little bit” or “I always start pedalling with my legs that’s why I don’t use the gears”. Watch “POLEMIC – How to shift gears in your mid-drive ebike and prevent motor degradation” till the end to know what humans are capable of!
