Combined Speed & Torque Sensor from First
First Bicycle Components Co. Ltd. celebrates its start in components for electric bikes at Taipei Cycle 2013. The renowned parts maker premieres a combined speed & torque sensor integrated in a BB-set.
Johnson Lee, General Manager of First Bicycle Components, said at last November’s Taichung Bike Week that his step into e-bike components wasn’t a giant leap.
His company was already working with electronics in its wireless electronic light sensing for several years. The new combined speed and torque sensor integrated in a bottom bracket set, which was launched at the Taichung Bike Week has been tested for over a year.

The system offers smooth and precise pedal assistance forces and comes with the ‘Magpie’ control unit. First Bicycle Components can offer the BB-set with the integrated speed & torque sensor in combination with its Hollowtech cranksets.
GM Johnson Lee sees its new sensor integrated BB-set as the company’s breakthrough in e-bike parts and components. First Bicycle Components has more idea and concepts on e-bike parts on the drawing table.
