Yep. Cool stuff and certainly a bit infectious.
This is so true ! I had never considered adding solar panels to my ebike but now it looks more and more obvious !

Re: My Sun Trip Bike, Back to Back Tandem Trike with Rowing Generator, Pedals, +Solar

Hi Justin, Thanks for these very interesting insights ! It's very fun to see how "solarizing" an e-bike has huge consequences on the way to handle it, the rythm, the roads and paths chosen etc... Distances covered, even by the old competitors such as Françoise Denel, are really impressive. It's mayb...

The route through Turkey and Iran is not the most efficient since you'll then need to head north to avoid countries with trickier political situations, but it should be quite spectacular.
So why would two award candidates such as Eric and Stephane take that route ?

Flying home to get hitched is a far better ending than crossing a line.

Re: My Sun Trip Bike, Back to Back Tandem Trike with Rowing Generator, Pedals, +Solar

@Solarbike, thanks again for your efforts making our following of the race way better than with the official tools :mrgreen: Its a rather strange style... Participate in a race without even the intention to get to the goal? That's not really participating [...] The truth is I am quite disappointed t...

I regret that the official map is not in line with the quality of the event !
Many thanks for this amazing tool that adresses this gap.
Now, I only have to find a way to display meteo forecast (wind and sun) on Google Earth ;)

Re: My Sun Trip Bike, Back to Back Tandem Trike with Rowing Generator, Pedals, +Solar

Hi Justin, Thanks for this great insight ! This solar race is really crazy, the only thing I regret is the lack of information we get from the runners ! If you have time, I would be very interested to know how you (and more generally speaking other suntripers including the best performers such as Be...

Bafang vs Shengyi hub motor

Hi all, I'm living in Shanghai and have bought an E-CargoBike for my wife and kids from a Chinese brand, Beiji Vehicles. I went to the factory to have review of the quality of their products. I was quite pleased by the Slim-E. http://sc01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1fNw9lgDD8KJjy0Fdq6AjvXXa7.jpg I'm sure I wi...

If there's interest in my own solar ebike, I'll start a separate thread for that.

Re: My Sun Trip Bike, Back to Back Tandem Trike with Rowing Generator, Pedals, +Solar

I'm really looking forwards to meeting up with all the other teams and checking out their rigs in the coming days too. My plan is to share pictures and details of other builds that I find interesting on this thread, which should help give a bit more visibility for those outside of Europe. Hi Justin...
