Re: hi who has experience with canadian police and ebike spec issue?

Alberta police state?
Hardly
There is less and less inforcement on many small things - simply police pretend they dont see.
Police present is minimal comparing example with Germany
You see you must compare somthing place to other places and you have a picture not to generalize like that.

Re: Best donor frame to build an electric bike & getting started

You forgot
Rim breaks wear rims, make rims weaker, wall thinner.
People seem to forget about it
I would rather replace disc on disc break than to replace rim with all this wheel building.

Re: Dozens of Bicycles Recovered!

those stupid bicycle racks,
building designers still put them outside buildings, they were OK in 60-70ties, but now?
If I cannot roll my ebike inside between entrance doors, I do not use this business.

Re: Dozens of Bicycles Recovered!

No there were not ebikes recovered as far as I know.
In such turist area where bikes are often rented bikes are easy target
probably tourists leave them all over the place
with false impression

Re: observable symptoms as cells degrade

We can picture internal resistance as resistor in series with cell.
As it ages this resistor value increases.
This internal resistance causes voltage drop

This LED light from Princess Auto.
What battery it would take to power it on ebike? Just wonder?
Is it not overkill for ebike?
So many LEDs for given lumen output would suggest there are not latest LED technology.

Re: What E-Bike Rack do you use?

In at least 20 years I transported my ebike once.
On minivan.
I ride my ebike to destination.
Don't use fossil fuel to get there to start riding
I start riding from home.
I guess regular double biker rack would handle one even heavy ebike

Re: Baked

Horrible
It was just matter of time with no any thermal protection.
So another one baked.
I understand opening it and installing thermal protection is hard job but if controller accept thermal sensor, thermistor input is it just obvious thing to do?
