Re: Lest we forget......until Nov 12, then its forgotten

Well I kept my eyes open, and noted that my city took down the memorial to fallen soldiers on Nov. 12, so yes they forgot already! How sad! Certain transit drivers had digital "Lest we forget" messages on their buses, but only until about Nov 13. Even sadder! Most business men downtown had ripped th...

Different newer body of truck, on really old truck!

What needs to happen when a person has a running truck, say a 1988 Ford F150, then wants to put a different body on it, say a 2012 Chevrolet Crew Cab body onto said F150. How is the difference noted on your registration. The dash would have the vin, door jam, and frame, plus on the 2012 would have v...

Power Band Differences

I am wondering what the difference is in the power band between an electric motor and lets say a regular 2 stroke gasoline powered 65cc engine rated at 2.75HP, so lets say the electric motor similarly outputs 2000 watts on a continous basis without overheating. I remember reading somewhere that the ...

Lest we forget......until Nov 12, then its forgotten

On November 12, they start taking down the ceremonial crosses used every year on Rememberance Day and no more signs on public transit "Lest we forget", I will take notice this year and see who is wearing the poppy before AND after Nov 11. I think the news anchors wearing the poppy will be a telling ...

DC Charger and HK Hardcase Batteries

I have been looking at chargers and I am wondering how I go about hooking it up to a laptop or desktop computer for the Power Supply?

Well thats what I was thinking, its the same person.

Thats just a hunch on my part. W...

MAC motor questions

Got a few questions on the MAC 500/1000W from em3ev. The reason I am going with it is because its a geared motor, everything is included and is the same price as the H3540 wheel/motor alone. I priced out shipping from em3ev and it seems to be around $80 to $100, so I am at $500 for a geared hub moto...

Re: EM3EV DD 500W Kit - 50km

when you got your EM3EV kit, how much damage and/or wrong parts did you get if any? Im just curious. The price tag scares me a bit and my mind wonders off to el-chepo custom DIY kit, basically any decent motor and battery setup.

Re: Taking the whole lane

Thats sad, whats the difference between a homeless bum riding on the road and a so-called real bicyclist? No difference at all, but its sad when the drivers will give more room to a real cyclist and no room for a bum, it shows a lot and the injury lawyers dont care as long as they win and get their ...

Re: Velo Traffic Stops

This type of thing ticks me off, cops mostly all the same, power hungry thats why they do the job to have power over innocent civilians. Your doing nothing wrong and they pull ya over.
