Hello everyone. The time has come! We are going to be migrating our website to a new system and doing a full shop inventory over the next couple days. During this time period we're going to disable all new orders from the web store in order to ensure as seamless a transition between the old and new system with all historic order data properly ported over.
As of 2pm PST today the checkout process is disabled on our store site, but you our simulator tools will stay active and other content is still accessible. At some point tomorrow you should see a new but similar version of the ebikes.ca live, and a day or two after that we expect to enable orders once again.
Thanks for being patient with us through this transition period and we look forward to seeing you on the other side.
We're glad to say that all the hard work of our manufacturing and shipping teams has paid off after the end-of-summer catchup. Our order queue and shipping lead times for most products are back to regular pre-covid era, even though our volumes remain just as high.
With that under our belt we have yet another big reorganization to brace for next week. We'll be performing the migration of our website to a new and more modern platform on Thursday October 1st. We're expecting a 1-2 day period when the new www.ebikes.ca site will be live but order checkouts will be temporarily disabeld. This will allow us to carefully check the stability, security, and functionality of all aspects of the page before opening it up to payments order processing.
We thank you once again in advance for your patience while we sort through these upgrades! Forwards we go.
After a succesful summer of field testing we're glad to have a pair of geared hub motors from Shengyi added to our catalog. These motors have the same quiet helical gears that everyone loves about the Bafang G310/G311 motors, but are in a slightly larger size level and power class. Many customers were pushing the G31x's a little beyond their capability and we think the SX1 (front) and SX2 (rear) hubs will do a great job of fitting that gap between the small Bafang's and much more powerful motors like the GMAC. The front SX1 motors are in stock now, and the rear SX2 hubs should be in early October.
One feature we're proud to deploy in these hubs is a combined speed AND temperature sensing in the Z910 motor plug which is compatible with our latest Baserunner controllers. As long as you have a kit with a V3 Cycle Analyst, you can comfortably see the motor temperature on your display and push the power limits without the risk of fried windings. We're aiming to make this feature standard in all of our new geared motors with the Z910 connector.
