Re: Greenerwheels Giant Revive Ebike build

I haven't been around much, I've been putting most of my energy into finding a job, I'm tired of no money for new projects! But I have been revising my Revive, and looking for a newer version so I can build a 2 wheel drive version of a Revive. Anyway some of the updates I've done are to remove the b...

Electric Vehicle Celebration Day July 9th

Hi All Well tonight I attended the OEVA (Oregon Electric Vehicle Association) monthly meeting.

Re: eTrike Conversion - as Mobility device! ... ?

Yeah you could build a serious torque monster with one of those! There maybe more work involved in making it work, but being able to control the gear ratio (top speed) would make for a safer and better hill climbing ride. What kind of life would you get out of one of those brushed motors? Greenerwhe...

Re: DoctorBass's new toy: KMX TYPHOON **UPDATE 23 may 2011

The first thing I did with my Cobra was to remove the rear brake and replaced the brake levers with standard levers each controlling the left and right front brakes individually. Gives you turning brakes (And amazing fun on wet surfaces) and it would seem the dual pull lever would require constant t...

Re: Greenerwheels Cobra Redux

Well maybe I'll be going to court, because the way the law is written, does that mean my daughters bike with training wheels is not legal, or some of the new mobility scooters are four wheels are they illegal? I'm just not sure what the logic is 3 wheels ok 4 is not.

Re: Greenerwheels Cobra Redux

There will always be someone that says "it won't work". This is a complete solution that can be swapped between bikes in about an hour. The only thing you'd have to do to the bike after you mount the axle is put the throttle on the handlebars (check out my Revive, as I've got a solution that doesn't...

Re: Portland - PSU Fraday, May 22 Earth Day Event

I agree with suncoaster, its more than just about ebikes, it's about making sure people know they have a choice in building their vehicle the way they want and not have to be stuck with what the manufacurers push on us.
That's my opinion anyway
