Re: My Wife Sold My Bike

Why didn't you get a dual sport or touring bike... it really seems like both bikes were wrong for your application. You like to lean and ride to fast for the cruiser, You ride to long for the super sport. Theres literally a bunch of proper bikes for your application. Even a super cruiser like the Ha...

Re: US distributor for TSDZ2 mid drives??

Re: Anyway of making the R martins from china sold on Ali express road legal in U.S.

Not sure why you're calling it an R Martin, but what makes you think there'd be a problem. I'm sure there will be red tape paperwork hoops to jump through, but EFun scooters have been sold in the US and operated as plated motor vehicles for over a decade. In fact, the picture of then CA governor Ar...

Re: Anyway of making the R martins from china sold on Ali express road legal in U.S.

Your opinion on what this vehicle is meant to be doesn't really matter. Here is what I learned building a scooter looking E-bike into an electric equivalent of a 200/300cc motorcycle. (performance wise) It all depends on the way the vehicle is imported into the country. Mine was imported as a bicyc...

Anyway of making the R martins from china sold on Ali express road legal in U.S.

I saw nothing but good review when their inferior bikes were sold in the U.S. so I was wondering if it would be possible to making them road legal since there is no longer a R martin dealer. For a electric vehicle the price to performance is the best i have ever seen. So this is a company with a pro...

There are like no good value buys for electric motorcycles. Even the victory empuse TT which were going for 6-8k used have all been bought up leaving 1 sub 8K bike on cycletrader. For a bike whos company went under that pricing is horrendus. The electric motor cycle market is horrible right now. Can...

Re: Man on electric bike killed in Bucks county pa

Most of bike crashes in the city, are caused by a driver who did not see anything. That is all they know to say: I did not see him. This is not always true, some of them just believed they could pass before you, and decided to bet YOUR life on it. On 2 wheels in the city trafic, you can't trust any...

Like the fact it has more cycles then 18650 or Lipo or the fact that it voltage does not slowly drop over use instead dropping till the very end when its almost dead. Or the ...

Re: MXUS xf40 1000w only going up to 20 mph at 1500 watt

If you have a good combo in reverse. Swap 2 phases, any 2, and leave the third as is Then the proper combo is one of the hall combinations, other than the one that you have. So swap 2 halls, if not good set them back as they were and try swapping one of the only 2 remaining possibilities... I tried...

Re: Is a fat bike good for Buffalo ny winters or a normal bi

Some places in the north don't use melting agents, so they are on compacted snow or ice most of the winter. Here they use so much that everything is salted in the winter. The trafic does lift a mist of calcium salt that covers a bike and rider entirely. The traction is good most of the time, but it...

Regarding a tadpole style bike, if you look hard enough there are front kits that replace your stock fork.
