Re: Is One Really Better Than The Other On An Electric Skatebaord?

Belt drive vs Hub on an electric skateboard? My question is, the same rated motor in belt vs hub, would you get the same speed, acceleration etc? I would say it depends on how you work out your transmission ratio so that the speed, acceleration, etc could be the same between belt/hub ( ...interrest...

Re: FVT 120A skateboard brake problem

sorry...

Re: The black art of motorcycle dynamics

Your first post mentioned literally nothing about whipping the second is a how-to not a physics analysis and furthermore it's a bad how-to that makes it clear you don't understand the process very well even if you have the skills to get totally upside down and sideways over the finish line.

Welcome on Endless sphere... those bikes are great, you can use them as they are and keep room for long term upgrades, I believe if the " commute 13k to school along trails and road." is without significant climbs, any of the grin technology kit you look at will work fine, do you know which battery ...

"We don't service DIY Ebikes" said the cycle shop

So... I went to a cycle shop to get my hydraulic brakes flushed and maintained :
Has soon has they saw the e-bike, they told me, "we do not service DIY e-bikes for legal reasons"

...was just wondering if it's often like that and if you had a similar experience in your area ?
