I noticed the frames as well. 100K right there in retail. Really neat. Do you have any information about the new upgraded batteries coming with all of the steatlh models? Besides most likely being lipo4, I am wondering if its either more capacity same weight or same capicity and slightly lighter weight. Rix
As far as I understand from Darin they are a new spec due to new supplier or new cells (probably due to slow supply) but Darin said there was no difference in output at all. Yes, still lifepo4.
I have a white bomber that I was hoping to have shipped this week. I was told some of the batteries didn't pass the final test so they sent them back to the manufacturer. The new shipment should be here in a couple of weeks and my bike is expected to be shipped out by the end of the month. Sounds like we are in a simular situation.
Just got my trailer hitch installed today so now I need to find a good bike hauler. I found an aluminum one for dirt bikes anybody try the amc-400
out yet? Below is the link. One of the images has the dimensions. My concern is that maybe the tires wouldn't fit properly between the rails or the rails may be to wide. If anybody has any input let me know.http://www.amazon.com/AMC-400-Lightweight-Aluminum-Motocross-Receivers/dp/B000B8LIKM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1336793131&sr=8-1
While i'm at it does anybody have a recommendation for a light or dual lights? I found this article and was thinking about getting one of the magicshine mj-872 lights. I had a cateye on my last bike which didn't stay in place and was unreliable so was thinking of getting two lights. I am not riding in the mountains at night just around town so I don't need to light up the forest or anything crazy but it would be nice just in case the moment arises.http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/article/best-mountain-bike-lights-28195/
Here is my motorized bike background. My fist bike was an ezip which I modded to 27v which lasted about two months until I melted the motor
Then I built a 48v BMC bike which was a huge improvement over the ezip. After a few months I had reliability issues with the controller, then I went through two batteries so I called it quits. After that I built a two stroke kit which was pretty fast around 35 - 40mph after all the mods. While it was fast it was just to loud and vibrated to much to be relaxing to ride. My next bike was a 4-stroke which was much more quite but had no torque, top speed was descent on a flat surface but the torque was defenitly lacking. After all that I decided an electric bike was the way to go and now that I have some extra cash I wanted to get a bullet proof bike that would be reliable and come with a warranty. I was looking at the optibike when I saw a link to the bomber after that I was sold. I was also seriously considering a Phoenix Paratrooper bike which I probably would of got if I didin't have the extra cash for a bomber. The Phoenix Paratrooper seems like a pretty good bang for your buck bike and being able to fold it is pretty cool.
Long story short I can't wait to get my bomber. Riding an electric bike is by far the most relaxing thing I have ever done. No phone to distract me, no texting, surfing the net, just piece and quite. Man I can't wait!
