So they are letting you fly with lithium batteries in a bike? I realise you can take bikes as checked luggage, but an ebike? didn't think so.

Check in Ogio 9800. No extra charge. First class on Dreamliner. It's the only way to fly.

In China there is no way to tell what came first the egg or the chicken, unless it is a fake egg. These definitely come first and chickens are not part of the process. Check that out :shock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvEBN8Jd5DE

Re: Small and big block rickshaw motors on Amazon.

Its a clone of the cyclone (Denzel D4500) motors. http://www.eastgem.net/d4500.html Chinese motors are all clones. With these motors it is impassible to tell which one is better because Chinese will cut corners every time they make something. Still for $100 with controller they might be worth the r...

Re: Small and big block rickshaw motors on Amazon.

Bigger than Cyclone 3kW and 2-4kW, with a lot less torque and a fraction of the power? What am I missing? Is the controller just a place holder for the real thing? Price and compactness. Both are very important for a light e-bike build. Now if you planning to build e-tractor Cyclone is a way to go....
