Hello everyone! I've been using this forum as a resource, and now I'm joining the conversation with a question. There may be more.
I've been riding electric for a year and a half, and it's totally changed my life. I've put 5000 miles on my Bionx Townie, burnt through a controller and a motor, and still keep coming back. It's been a fun 18 months.
Now, the system does have it's quirks, but this is a new one. I'm setting up a HP Velotechnik as my next Bionx, and I got the kit (the bike is still being built). I swapped batteries with my old one, and it worked fine for a little while (other than not being able to set the clock, which is odd), but after about 2 miles, it went in full regenerative mode, and I couldn't go anywhere, no matter what speed I put it on. I wound up biking back the old fashioned way, but I'm still curious what to do. I've tried the other battery (same problem), and the new controller (same problem). It seems like it's the motor, but it's only a couple months old.
Anyway, is there some setting that someone knows out there that I could try? Is it in secret lock mode?
That's it for now - I just hope that I don't have to take it back to Electric Cyclery in Laguna Beach, since that's an hour and a half drive.
