Re: [Q] 2 kids trailer above 5 yrs old ages

CHROOT,

What are the dimensions of the HT35? If the Diameter is less than or equal to the Clyte 407, I don't see a problem. (I haven't tracked crystallyte and become familiar with the HT35)

Hey Ryan, I apologize for the tardy reply - Everytime I have built one, dog gone it, someone has come and bought it, so I made one for myself that is not for sale and have been parking my Sprinter van. Further, I had to confer with Clever about selling the bracket, etc by themselves - but more on th...

Re: Dropout Failure Experiements, and a call for Fork Donations

Hey Justin, In your tests, have you applied any grease to the axle threads? In Bike Mechanic School (UBI), they taught us that greasing the threads can increase the fastening force by up to 40% while reducing friction-based torsional strain. I would love to see a few tests with something like a thin...

Maybe what I really need is an anti-theft device, some kinda capacitor that would give you enough of a jolt if you tried to mess with the bike to think twice, but not enough to really hurt you ... especially when I will probably shock myself with it more than once forgetting it's on :roll: :lol: .....

Re: Anyone been able to Insure their E-Bike? (Theft, etc.)

If your E-bike is documented and especially if its registered, you can file a claim against your home-owners insurance or renters insurance...IF its stolen from your home. It would require a police burglary report. If stolen from the front of a store...you'd have to ask several insurance agents. Un...

Sheriff Jon, You have a valid point.

NiMH 36v Rack Mount Batteries

Hello, I am wondering if anyone out there has a recommendation for some 36V NiMH rack-mounted batteries for a Bike Friday that I am converting. The rider will be flying internationally and cannot take Li-Ion of any chemistry. Looking for 15-20Ah.

Thanks!
