Re: gas price thread

C$1.22 per litre in Toronto. Don't miss these blood sucking monsters one second. In front is my brand new 2017 Ford Focus Electric. Haven't paid a cent since I got it last week, thanks to the local Ikea for the free fast DC-DC charger, I've done already 524 km, and saved C$57 on gasoline alone. P.S....

Re: Cheapo ebike volt / ammeter?

OP, I have the same one on my ghetto laptop charger for my setup.
Volts are OK, but Amps are way off. Beware.

Re: Tesla Self Crashing Car has First Fatality

From historical point of view, people who is against self-driving cars, should look back 50 years ago. Cars then had no seatbelts, period. 50 years fast forward, seatbelts are mandatory, as is ABS and 10 air bags. As soon as there will be enough data to prove that self-driving cars are 100 times bet...

Re: Tesla Self Crashing Car has First Fatality

I've been of the opinion that this technology shouldn't ever be trusted more than an attentive driver. I don't quite trust that it will always recognize pedestrians and cyclists, nor do I trust its ability to judge what functions to execute in the case that an accident is unavoidable. 105 people wi...

Re: Who has bought EM3EV's bicycle frames and how do you lik

Received my frame yesterday from EM3EV. Early birthday present :) Overall, very impressed, quality, packaging, attention to detail, etc. Except for one thing: one of pivots, which connects swing arm to the frame is slightly bent in, and now won't fit in. I've tried filing off paint on connecting sur...

Re: JP spot welder

I'm not against the battery supplied, its just that I have 220 pieces of A123 26650 sitting on the shelf, doing nothing for the last 2 years.
Pretty sure I'll be able to use my cells for your welder.

On my way to work this morning, guy in Altima pulls beside me, starts saying how cool my bike is, and how he liked my speed, 58 km/h Damn, gotta check settings on my CA, p...

Re: Genesis Swingarm aka Farfle Swing arm new production run

Generally its probably bad form to sell something on someone else's sale thread but in this case it doesn't bother me. I didn't design these from scratch or come up with the original idea so I cant say I didn't benefit from others work to get them to where they are. Thanks Dan, swing arm sold, pend...

Re: The wheel-building spoke-lacing thread, post your tips

3 years and 9000 km later my bike is completely trouble free.
16" moto rims and Pirelli's, no flats, no broken spokes, nothing.
Very glad I've decided to overbuild it.
My first wheel building job.

Hello, I've tried to send you PM, but it didn't go thru.

Anyhoo, how much would you charge for one black frame shipped to Toronto, Canada?
Thanks a lot,
