I can't come to the expo...but not having seen your rig, I might be able to win an "overbuilt" category. ;)

If I had one I wasn't using I'd probably have used bits of it to make something on one of these with. :lol:

Thanks! :)

I was curious about your rig, so I poked around but couldn't find any pics or descriptions, other than some mention of handling. There is a post by Kepler in a thread you'd posted to as well, his post is showing a trike but dunno whose it is.

It's a good point.. I stupidly don't have any great pics of my rig (will need to sort that!), but it is featured in this video of last years event.. Mine is the Purple People Mover ;P

Dunno why but that page only has a black box where video should be for me (with or without flash enabled); other yt vids work ok so it's not a global issue with my computer, at least. I might have to wait till you have pics posted up. :/

A good day out at the Melbourne EV expo. Probably one the busiest EV expo's I have been to. Big thanks to RevBecca for all their efforts.. Looks like their stand was flat-out all day.

Pleased to report both AussieRider and myself represented Endless Sphere well with AussieRider taking out the peoples choice for best ebike and myself for best converted ebike.

Not to forget ES member Revbecca winning best over 250 watt category with her Purple People Mover trike for the second year running. Congratulations Revbecca and Kepler. A big thanks must go to the organisers.

Thanks Sam. Shame you didn't make it. Was looking forward to catching up. Not to worry. With improved weather on its way, a group ride is definitely on the cards in the near FUTR 8)
