Re: Do 100mph bikes exist??

Risky and I hope they are young and youthful with a good health plan so they can recover fast, if they do recover at all. Yup some do like to go fast on electric bicycles but 40mph is to fast for me, maybe your flavor of fun is different and maybe you have ridden motorcycles in the past but the dang...

Re: Do 100mph bikes exist??

What about the russians, I thought one put up a video of going super fast but that might have been just 60mph. The forces of those speeds can not hold up to mass produced bicycle engineering even with the good brand high end bicycle models. In the quarter mile drag strip? Yes... Luke... LiveForPhysi...

Re: How do you feel about your state's moped laws?

The roads should be split, one lane in each direction for automobiles motorcycles and trucks and the other 2 lanes for everyone else bicycles, velomobiles, small electric transport that just might be the conversion that will happen. You just cant trust drivers to change lanes so you frock them over ...

Re: new eZip motor

I told you this before about blue loctite, it is very basic knowledge that is even used on bicycle like v-brake boss bolts or disk brake adapter and caliper bolts. Blue loctite is used so the nut does not come loose by vibration, you should even use blue loctite on rear rack bolts, it just takes a b...

Re: new eZip motor

With red loctite it is permanent like glue and takes a blow torch to get off but blue loctite you can undo the bolt it is whats used on the brake adapter bolts but I think you can get the remaining residue off with a wire brush and wd40 then take rubbing alcohol to wipe it down if you want to try to...

Re: escooter 1000w 36v problem

Could be that the controller is tripping on low voltage at 37.5v 12.5v x 3 or the lead acid batteries are crappy and sag bad. Charge one battery up 1v at a time and run the scooter unloaded so there is very little to no battery sag. Twist the throttle with the scooter motor wheel in the air. You mig...

Re: What is the shortest spoke you ever laced or seen in person?

I was thinking the same thing that there might be a glitch in the software as it would depend on the rims spoke hole spacing that I never changed but the angle was always 90 degrees all the way down which seemed a bit odd. Going down that low for a small tire its best to buy a hub motor that you can...
