    If you can use a soldering iron it is pretty easy to add a CA plug.

      I think where he is at with this is he can connect the CA he just can't get it to commutate with the controller

        Spinningmagnets thank you for doing the article on the Edge that is why I bought the motor
        that with a 12 fett 40a sine wave controller and a luna 52v 24ah battery
        It is awsome

          Thanks for the feedback. What diameter tire do you have, and what top speeds are you getting?

            The wheel tire set up is 26in. rim with a Hookworm 26x2.50 tire
            on the test stand the motor turned 532 rpm at wot
            Top speed I don't know I let up on the juice when the bike hit 35mph and it still had more

              The higher-kV motors have a lower turn-count of thicker wire. That allows more amps, but your most often used cruise speeds will end up being at the half-throttle position. There is an argument that this is slightly less efficient than using the same motor and voltage, but with a slower kV...while running full throttle.

              there is no perfect configuration, simply a dozen compromises where you must choose half of them. The half that you choose depends on what you want to do with your ebike. Right now?...for me?...I recommend an ebike that can easily reach 40-MPH, and you actually ride it very responsibly at 20-MPH...until a car-driving zombie is texting and almost kills you.

              I am zeroing-in on a cost effective system for a street commuter, and the Edge 1500W is one of my top two options.

                I did some more messing around with the edge today
                It has a 3 position switch on it L/M/H I ran it on hi today and the motor turned 816 rpm on the stand compared to 532 on the med setting
                it will hit 20mph at 1/4 throttle I guess I will experiment with the L/M/H settings and see which one gets me the most mileage at
                12 to 15 mph I still want to look and see what the controller is set at but cant get the software to load on my computer yet
                thanks for all your feed back

                  Spinning Magnets Got the dd done This is what I found The luna 52v24ah battery is made for this motor with the 50 amp continuous out put and a tweaked 50 amp controller It is awesome It hit 41MPH the other day pulls hills pretty easy and the controller gust got a little warm after a 17 mile ride Thanks so much for doing the wright up ya did Now I wont bother you any more GW

                    No bother at all. The Leafbike motor is close in efficiency and performance, but the Edge has the aluminum "heat-sponge" stator-support, which only weighs about one pound more. You can add ferro fluid, and rim-fins to the Leafbike, but I wanted to test the Edge and I am happy with it. 40-MPH in the real world is good, because that means max efficiency will be around 30-MPH, with a speed reserve if a car looks like you need to get away from them.

                    Having several gears at the rear wheel makes it look like its a regular width hubmotor like a 9C or yescom, but the stator inside is wider and has more copper mass. 50A on a 9C or yescom will get them too hot, this motor will just get warm (because of more copper mass, plus thinner lamination make less waste heat). The wider magnets (35mm vs 28mm) also make more acceleration torque from the same input watts, compared to a motor with a narrower stator.

                    If someone is happy with only 2000W, there are a ton of beneficial options to having a mid drive that gives the motor the use of some gears. However, if you want at least 2500W, you might as well go for this motor, because you can always go higher later, and also the chain won't be breaking or wearing out fast, like it would with the motor driving the chain.

                      Been lurking around this page for a while to gather info on the edge 1500 hub motor, and I gotta say I'm about convinced I want one now. Have talked via messenger with Alan over at ERT and he seems to be a genuinely helpful guy. Now to just get funds together before summer and I can order the kit to make this happen. Thanks for being unknowing resources Greenwerks and spinnigmagnets, your knowledge is an invaluable tool to me!

                        Dale be sure to mate it with the Luna 52v24ah triangle battery that is what really makes it all happen
                        it is perfect for that motor controller combo I love it my favorite ebike and I have 3 of them
                        This thing is almost totally silent the power and torque on Hi setting is very impressive

                          I'll have to use my 48 volt 20 ah Luna Storm battery for now, too much dinero to unload at one time for a poor boy like me.

                            Dale what kind of continuous amp out put does your battery have

                              Sorry for the delay in responding, had a devil of a time getting logged in for the last couple of days. In response to your question, this particular battery uses the Panasonic PF cells and I'm not sure of the continuous amp output. Guess I'll have to research it some to be able to correctly answer. Will let you know when I find out.

                                Looked it up and apparently these are 10amp continuous, with possibly a 50 amp 80 amp max BMS according to Lunacycle's January 09, 2016 article on their PF cell battery packs. The article is primarily focused on their 52 volt offerings, but states that ALL of their PF cell packs were wired with this BMS. Really hard to know for sure without tearing my pack apart, something I'm not willing to do unless I have a problem with it. I'm a poor dude, so the $600.00 I gave for this pack last September was a big expenditure for me. Anyway those are the facts I can find as of now. Thanks again for your input on this prospective build and ride on safely bro!
