Popular Post Marty Backe Posted November 24, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted November 24, 2017 (edited) Lately I've been enabling the Maximum Current alarm in my WheelLog app. I have it set at 90 amps (for my Tesla). When the current demand exceeds this value I get a vibration buzz on my wrist. This has been very educational in learning about where my wheel demands power. When starting from a stop and going up a steep incline - buzz. Probably to be expected. But most interesting to me is when it occurs at high-speed. If I'm riding > 20-mph (32-kph) hit a small bump or drop in the road I will often get the buzz. This is telling me that there's an increased risk of a wheel problem occurring (I'm riding a Gotway folks ) when hitting obstacles at high speed. At lower speeds I never get the alarm to trip. So this instantaneous feedback mechanism has been invaluable for learning the potential limits of the wheel. Now, when I'm approaching a little tiny drop in the pavement when traveling very fast, I will slow down a bit to avoid the power surge. It's all about increasing my safety margin and avoiding potential face plants. Something for you Gotway riders to consider. I love the WheelLog / Pebble combination.
