Re: The end of BionX?

Appears there might have been some slight problems with the collaboration, too bad, a lot of us would like to buy a made in N. America drive system. Look for a new movie coming soon to a theater near you-"Who Killed The Electric Bike?"

Re: Straight Answer on Using Lithium Power Tool Batteries

I'm sure you quickly figured out Kobalt packs are 21.6 nominal, they use three tabs, (+) and (-) on the outsides and one middle tab goes to the charger, one is unused. They call them 24v just like a lot of 18v packs are labeled as 20v by other manufacturers. I took the flashlight apart to look at th...

Re: Best Full Suspension ebike Frames?

More common bikes I would look for would be the Giant Anthem's and Trek Fuel's of the mid 2000's vintage. They all had nice open triangles, but if used w/ a frame bag, they need some sort of guard so the vertical mounted shock doesn't wear thru it. I have Trek Fuel 90 2003 w/BBSHD and swapped out f...

Re: BOSS LEVEL CUSTOM SPOT WELDER

Some tests, first tried it at 5.0ms, worked, then up to 7.0ms, can see positioning the electrodes evenly helps. Had a hard time prying the test strips off the blade with my pocket knife.

Re: Ezip Trailz 24v bike low power

You should get a cheap multi-testor if you don't have one and first determine the voltage the batteries are getting up to and eliminate that possible problem first. Hot off the charger a 24v battery should be around 27 volts. Here's a thread to read with lots of info about the Trailz bikes: https://...

Exactly what does your multi-testor say after battery is charged as much as it's going to charge? Is it an old lead acid battery pack?

Re: Man Gets Hit and Run Over at Vigil for Cyclist who was hit an Run and Killed

Re: E-bike restricted trail access and hate

Around here, there are places I'd expect them to ticket people for using the signals and crosswalk as intended, for "obstructing the flow of traffic". :roll: But in reality I don't think they'd ever put them in in the first place. I suspect the only time they even add crosswalks, or traffic signals...

Re: E-bike restricted trail access and hate

Yes protected lanes need to be implemented with well thought out design. I often ride on stretches of roadway where there are no driveways or other entrances where auto traffic travels at high rates of speed and designated bike lanes are exposed. I see little negatives to arrangements like this in s...
