I just came back from watching this and some parts used in that video seemed veeeery familiar…
According to his description, that was a TORQUE VESC and a 6374 149kv motor. (he even had links to this website with some explanations about how VESC works hahah)
As soon as I saw this I immediately searched for any post related to this video by searching “Sam and Niko” or “VESC for ebike” and stuff but I didn’t seem to find anything.
My question as soon as watching this was: Is this an actual efficient solution to make an ebike?
EDIT: Efficient as in like is this solution actually functional + do its job for the extra price of a VESC
I know that there are certain ESCs that are meant for ebikes because as I searched for ESCs for my board I always found those “ebike” titles on the name, but is it better or worse to use a VESC? I am totally aware that VESCs are designed to be used in esk8s but again, if people like Sam and Niko do this type of stuff it just makes me curious if he actually did all the research behind this and ended up with this as his ultimate solution (Or he was basically a part of the esk8.builders community and just thought hey why not use these parts for a bike and use it for a video).
If you check my other post I just came to this forum a week ago to build my first esk8, and DIY electronics stuff is fairly new to me as well. I am curious of how actual DIY ebike systems work (maybe another website that I’m not aware of?) and maybe decide this for my next personal project!
