Re: Tesla MIC (made in China) Model 3 will be LFP!

Wow, this is interesting. It must have significantly less range or weigh quite a bit more. However, in theory it will last an astronomical amount of time. Completely different BMS voltage setup. Pretty interesting! I wouldn't have guessed but considering the Cobalt shortages it makes perfect sense.

Re: Lyft redesigns NYC CitiBike ebike as a single-speed

With enough power, gears really cease to be necessary. I've been riding single speed with pedal assist for 3 years and there have been maybe 2 times that I wanted for gears, and that was while not using assist (group rides). I've never not made it up a hill even when touring, or melted a motor. It m...

Re: Cured my wife's anxiety and my depression with nutritional supplements.

These days I try to mix in carbs in the form of berries and even potatoes sometimes but I always feel way better without them. Wish it weren't true because pizza is awesome, but it's not worth my life. Same. I've gradually worked up to handling ~150g of carbs in a meal with zero ill effect. 7 years...

(nodding furiously) Yeah, meeting carrie brown in person ( you saw the video above right? ) is who convinced me that i wasn't totally insane when it came to liver eating.

Re: fast charging through phaserunner

This requires some pretty unique backbends in the software to accomplish and I'm not aware that this exists in the current phaserunner / ASI code, it would be really sweet though!

Re: Electric Scooter Conversion - Polish WFM Osa M52

Looks like an awesome contender. In the states, many people just register the bikes as their original vehicle class. I'm not sure if that's a viable option in Poland/EU. 7.2kWh should definitely get you to 100km, you might even need less if lower speed around town. There are some decent Chinese char...

Re: Best Value fast ebike for my commute?

Re: Lambretta University Project

By comparison electric motors have a huge efficiency range compared to a gasoline engine, and the losses due to to all the extra rotating bullshit further skews the need of a transmission. hence why not commercial EVS have transmissions. The torque of even a small electric motor can destroy the dogs...

Re: Lambretta University Project

An e-lambretta would be dope. I imagine you're interested in the non-hub motor setup because the whole swingarm is essentially the motor/gearbox assembly. I think there are some swingarm conversion kits out there that would allow you to drop all the deadweight of the gearbox. That being said keeping...

I was thinking, as an interim solution would it be possible to get the raw BT-> UART feed through a display with an integrated Bluetooth radio, like the eggrider?

We have data on 10s of thousands of miles on these style clutches, and I haven't seen one fail yet due to anything but gross overpowering of the motor itself.
