Re: The keto thread

Here's a fun one. Researchers were experimenting with a diabetes drug when noticing that it reversed heart failure in some patients. They recently tried it on pigs with heart disease and saw massive improvements. What does the drug do? it causes something like 90% of the glucose that goes into the b...

Re: E-Bike Registration

I design 100% of my bikes to have a drivetrain capable of pedaling with the top speed of the bike. Even if it means having a bizarrely large chainring. http://neptronix.org/forumpics/hiryuu_spring.jpg Because of the top speed limit of city streets in my area, all my bikes are designed to do up to 45...

Re: Bafang i thin I hate you... ( HALP ME!)

Actually the threads on the bafang crank arms are horrible. So is the interfacing to the drive unit itself. I had multiple parts get loose on me.

Re: Bryan Lunduke ( linux nerd ) argues against commercial electric cars

I actually owned a car that got bricked. It was a 1998 Suzuki Esteem with about 120k miles on it. The car suddenly died in the middle of the highway when my wife was driving it. We had it towed to our usual repair shop, and they couldn't figure the car out for the life of them after two weeks. I wen...

There are some benefits to things being kept unhacakable and closed. But those are rarely realized.

Re: Bryan Lunduke ( linux nerd ) argues against commercial electric cars

Tesla is extremely anti repair, mirroring a lot of the asshole things Apple does. Their cars are mostly software controlled apparatuses. Moreso than any other car on the road. The cars do not need to be locked up and the user shut out to the degree that they are. One could argue that the ability to ...

Bryan Lunduke ( linux nerd ) argues against commercial electric cars

Re: The keto thread

So the government of Western Australia recently pulled their heads out of their asses and put out a memo supporting low carb in favor of traditional type 2 diabetes treatment - not only because it gives better outcomes, but it's less of a financial burden on their system. Pretty cool. :) http://rege...

Re: The keto thread

That's a damn good article. And is exactly why i like keto.. On carbs, it's a battle of willpower that can never be won, with my metabolism working against me at every angle. On keto, i am more likely to forget to eat. So maintaining the weight loss is no issue. Those who keep rattling on 'just eat ...

Re: DP-Ninja 8000W 72V 100MPH

The price is good, but 8000W is not enough to sustain or even hit 100mph.
When i see false claims from vendors, i tend to step away. It is a sign of more bullshit to come as an owner. What else were they not being honest about?

Re: Issues with BBS02

What's the best way to check if everything is properly connected? Everything seems to be plugged in good. My highly scientific technique is to wiggle cables and smack things around while riding under power. If something is loose, you'll feel the power cut out. And how would I rule out a bad control...

Pritkin's low fat diet is pretty similar to the food pyramid of today.

Re: I fear no man. But that ...thing. it scares me.( Thunder dual motor).

If a controller acts like an on/off switch, it cannot handle the eRPM of the motor and that is a typical response. Now, the manufacturer could have designed or specified a controller with a faster processor and a higher khz control loop, but that would have cost like 5 bucks.. :lol: You can try thro...

Just go on the starvation diet and eat lean foods and veg, with working out. Lots of caffienne pills to curb the hunger.
