Re: Ultimate e-bike chain oil

Only the lube that gets inside your chain does it any good. Graphite, moly, and Teflon are all good, but only if you can somehow carry them into the bushings and pins. "All Hail Chalo"....years ago the boyz who ride on salted roads during the winters in Canada turned me on to ROCK AND ROLL Lubricat...

Re: Best Grease for Geared Hub Motors

I cant find Best Grease for Geared Hub Motors anywhere, some say Mobil grease 28, but its expensive. Others say ATF. Another is "High Quality Synthetic Grease" - I should be able to hit up the Auto Parts store and buy some off the shelf. What is recommended? 6000 miles ago, when I replaced my white...

Re: How many miles do you put on your eBike per month?

Approaching my 4th year of riding an eBike. I commuted to work for 10 years on a straight bike, then made the jump. Taking advantage of our Florida weather and a radar app, monthly miles average around 350 miles. Maintain two bikes and they have saved me tons of money and time sitting in traffic. To...

Re: Metal base thumb throttle needed

eBikes.ca has a thumb throttle on the design bench. It's shown on their web site in the YouTube tour of their factory.

That's what I'm holding out for....that and the new motor design coming to market!!

Re: ES Investors Club

A while back you guys made the right call with Orocobre (orocf or ore.au). Their lithium mine made it's first shipment recently and the stock shot up then tanked as predicted. I noticed that this quarters production has slowed due to some design issues and Orocobre had to spend an additional 5 milli...

Re: No ebikes allowed?

In some ways I wish there were more EV bikes and trikes around here. But there are very few. Now I recognize a benefit. If there were a lot of e bikes by the rule of large numbers there would be some bad boys in the mix. That brings a bad rep which brings the subject up at city and county commission...
