I am going to change my setup a bit and I want to get a set of hub motors instead of the belt driven setup that I currently have. I weight 170lb and I don’t have many hills to worry about in my area.
I am really inspired by Mellow and Inboard’s hub motor design and I wanted to make my own. What do you guys see as the best hubs on the DIY market right now? I really love the idea behind having no belts and no pulleys etc. Sounds amazing but are there issues with heat and phase wires coming loose and shorting?
I am currently planning on a 12S2P Samsung or LG pack with two Vescs and one of the Open Source BMS units from this forum.
Side Note: Are Mellow and Inboard actually using 12S1P packs to drive dual hubs? Sounds kinda sketchy.
