Re: Is there a way to charge my scooter when I am on the road?

You could find a 750-800W generator along with a charger that does not need more then 6.5A input. The Meanwell's are good quality, perhaps pick up a 48V unit version if thats what your battery is. You could place the MW's in series to obtain a higher voltage. Otherwise you have to start hunting for ...

Re: using voltage sag as indication of bad battery

Wouldnt one just get like an Adruino, and a ton of balance wires, along with some precisely placed temprature probes. Then have a neat little LCD screen. You can either eyeball the sag, or be even more fancy about things and have a program to monitor it then give you a visual indication with a l.e.d...

Re: Is it bad to constantly plug in and lightly drain a battery?

I assume you do this because you do not know where your next delivery will be, so you want a full charge just in case the next delivery so far far away. Is that right? I guess too it could be because you dont want to be out of juice at anytime through-out the day/night, delivering everywhere. The mo...

Re: Bicycle brakes versus motorcycle

Look into regen for the braking aspect, along with high quality bicycle brakes will do you well. Then there is the choice of Hydraulic or Mechanical disc, some prefer Hyd's others like the field repairability of mech's.

I really do need to buy some suspension forks, so I got me a line on XCM Suntour SR is the lowest, then its XCT, XCM, XCR. V2 older and V3 newer. XCM/XCR have replacable parts.

I have never liked SRAM shifters, I always go for the rapid fire Shimano shifters.

Bikewagons s/h fee is $50usd minimum to ship to Canada. They had some Tektro Ebike Levers that were cheap!

DM24's are a robust rim Stay away from Crystalyte Stay away from using thicker spokes, thinner spokes are what you want for bicycle rims as stretch is good otherwise a 12g can break the nipple hole.

I wonder if http://bikeman.com/ is the same as the Youtube channel, the company logo seems to fit his persona.
If you ever seen Bikeman4u youtube channel that guy is crazy, 50's guy with a mohawk and a pony tail in the bike biz for eons. I remember Bikeman4u saying he is on Long Island so must be NY.

Re: First conversion kit

If you want complete silence from the motor, then you want a direct drive with a sinewave controller. Mid drives are good for lots of hills, and lots of stop and go. They also make a lot of noise. My BBS02 is a lot quieter than my direct drive Crystalyte 5305 hub. It surprised me how quiet. I haven...

Re: New York State Senate Bill S1357 (Definition of ebike)

How do they compensate for people that weigh a little or a lot......more/less then the weight as defined as a person. Some people weigh 250lbs, others up into the 300's and much more, 350+. Thats double the weight as defined.
