haha what full-throttle said
FTs bike, 48v with a geared hub motor was an eye opener for me, partic compared with the 48v std hub I was running (N yeah guys I KNOW the back brake on the test machine is more for "aesthetic purposes" than any stopping power
), with low-end torque being noticeably well stronger on full-throttle's beast. Plus a really clean understated build, Nice in triangle location for batteries and controller, and a smaller geared hub to really de clutter the rear end. With Full throttles obvious cycling background, I reckon I'd have to look twice if he passed me on the street, before realising his mount was electric.
T3esla brought a foldable 20" which was remarkably OK ... I mean the little wheels freaked me out, and I didn't adjust it for "ride" and don't feel to comfortable in a "squat position" on a bike (Curse of a long limbed 6' human frame) so that prolly didn't help perceptions
but as a compact transport solution it was purty cool. At this stage, not my cup of tea tho.
Listening to T3sla's e-bike mechanicing experience and his general perception of the commercial/industry side as a man in the frontline was awesome... Definately some wise words there for me to chew on
In fact a Lotta good words from both re the pheasibility or not of an e-bike business...
Personally it was super cool to met some other peeeps who actually owned operated and worked on e-bikes.
Can't wait to meet some more or meet the same ones again
