Re: My mid-drive E-Skooter

I have one question: Can I overvolt the 24V motor to 36V? Will this really affect the life expectancy of the motor? :?: I put a 36v controller on one of those motors and it's working well after about 50 miles so far including steep hill climbs. I'm using a small lithium ion battery, you could light...

Although I've read most of this fascinating thread over time can you refresh us on what type of rim you're using on the back? That way I can keep an eye peeled for any useable ones at the bike co-op when I pass through there.

Re: Critique my Build/Plan

Box looks great, the trim and bolt give it a nice aesthetics.

tomjazy, I went ahead and ordered one of those, figured it's one step closer to doing away with a few cheap ring terminals/solder I'm using on a couple of my bikes. Had no trouble with them so far but over time I likely would. Thanks for posting.

Re: New "TSDZ2 Torque Sensor Central Motor"

Cruzbike looks like an exciting ride, It must handle like a slot car. Does the fact the crankset is quite a ways in front of the steering tube stabilize the steering? It's been about 30 years since I've ridden a similar bike, I remember it being a lot of fun although I didn't go very fast on it.

Re: Toyota i-Road leaning ev trike

Curious what the crash protection level is on these Toyotas, Arcimoto, etc? How do they do when a dually monster Ram suddenly cuts the right hand turn into your path? They look kind of hard to jump out of and bail quickly if you need to for some reason. Maybe I'm just behind the times.

I'm loving the Ryobi so far, previously I was mooching fillups on my air tank from my neighbor's compressor when it ran out of air. I tossed the Ryobi in the back of the truck this past weekend when I went out on a group trail ride so I have air to share if anybody needs an easy top off before the r...

It's about $40.00 for a 10 yard roll of the stuff. How long is the run on the rear brake ...

That last one, Outside is a fairly widely read magazine. Looks like the lines are being drawn alright, it’s going to be unfortunate if the club bikers/ebikers conflict thing gets more intense. Some of the clubs have a lot of members and are pretty darned serious about what they do.

Try the positioning with a couple big zip-ties and a rubber bungy holding it on before you mount it with bolts and nuts, that way you can see how it feels, I suspect it's going to be fine in any of your 3 positions.

Re: portable air compressors for tires

I broke down and got a Co2 unit today, was in the local LBS for a cable and spotted it on sale for about $20.00. When I saw it was controlled input and actually has a mini-pump in the handle for if all else fails I figured it's gonna be a good thing for flats 15 miles in on a trail.

Re: optimal shark battery placement on my bike, opinions?

The lower the better, keep your center of gravity low for better handling and less tendency to tip over easy when setting the bike against stuff.

Added: might want to add a fender if you ride in the rain at all, prevents slinging water/mud all over the battery in that spot.

Re: Help with Bafang remote

I was just thinking you could connect to the two screw holes that are in the top half of the unit. I hope you can figure out something that looks halfway clean, those road bars are quite wide aren't they? The unit fits around my MTB bars with the 31.8 stem size no problem.
