Re: Apple iPad as a dashboard display?

The only cycle app Ive seen for ipad is http://tinyurl.com/2cwq6l5 As for openness of phone OS, nothing beats windows mobile.

Re: Got my ebike parts, need help choosing a bike

What year is that Giant Trance and what trim level? It looks like a 05-07 I just scored a 2008 Giant Trance 2 with 4.2" Maestro suspension. I love it because it has a fairly large front triangle. The shock mount is above the bottom bar. It looks exactly like the 2010 version of Maestro. The Trance 2...

Re: Motored Bike Specific Tire Coming Soon!

I just bought 2 of those Kenda Kross Plus at my local Ochard Hardware Supply. It's kind of hard to find but it's in their tiny bike parts section. I got it for $22 for both tires with tax. They are branded Schwinn but has Kenda printed on the sidewall. Schwinn brand was no where to be found except o...

Re: Help me decide

I think I may have to scrap the nicad battery idea. I have calculated the weight of 60 cells (60s1p=72V2.4ah). They weigh almost 10 lbs. 6 SLA at 72v 10ah weight about 43lbs give or take. Nicad at 60s4p (72v 9.6ah 240cells) weighs about 39 lbs. 24 Headway 3.3v 10ah weigh about 16lbs but needs BMS. L...

Re: 6 port Ryobi One charger

I may be wrong but according to its spec "1 HR CHARGE - Charges each 18V ONE+â„¢ battery, one at a time, in one hour or less." and its power input is only 85 watts which lead me to believe that it charges serially. So if you plug in 6 batteries at a time, it charges 1 at a time. When one is done...

Re: 18 FET Low RDS MOSFET Overclocker Ready LYEN Controller

woo hoo Lyen finally sent the controller. I bought the original 18fet controller from him 3 weeks ago. Then he got the 4110 fet version so I upgraded to that with no hassle. I asked him to hold off on shipping b/c I may buy more stuff from him. After paying for everything 2 weeks ago, he finally got...

Re: Blinker/Directional lights?

Wow, this thread went from methods of constructing turn signals to legality of turn signals to pros and cons of having turn signals to scooters and the birth of segway to personal rant of existents of segway caused one's disolvement of one's business.
