    Some pb with my Easy bike

    I live in the south of France and have just bought a second-hand electric bike. This electric-assist bike dates from 2003 and is made by Easy Bike. I need help to better understand how the electrical system works and what the upgrade options are.

    2003 is pretty early for E bikes. That could even be before 'brushless' motors got common which has been the standard for many years now. If jts just a plain DC motor none of the current typical ebike controllers will work.

      2024 is also becoming early for Electric Pedal assist Bikes, E-Street & E-Dirt bikes, E-Cars, E- Boats & E-Aircraft.
      Trying to figure out the electrical problem with my 2020-Light bee.
      One of the tech`s I contacted advised me to sell it because soon they`ll be coming out with
      solid state batteries and Improved products.

      Solid state batteries and other pipe dreams are decades away (if ever) of being practical, economical and widespread... there will only be incremental improvements year-to-year... how do I know? It's *always* been this way and always will be... it takes decades for big improvements - e.g. first Li-ion batteries were demonstrated in 60's and 70's and commercial cells patented in the 80's and became available in the 90's...and the improvement in electro-chemical cells is already reaching asymptotic improvement so the advancements will more likely slow - it's not a moore's law sort of thing...

      They will never be practical, economical and widespread for aircraft (at least any kind of carrying over distance) density of a Li-ion is <1/30 of fuel and even if it triples (the theoretical limit) it's still way too low...

      Waiting only makes sense if what's available today doesn't suit your requirements....
