Re: Greyp eBikes

At an estimated 6000 Euro or 7900 $US ( source ), it is a better value than the Stealth (Bomber or Fighter) ebikes. Still expensive compared to what a motorcycle (non-electric) offers, but within the ebike industry it is a step in the right direction. A more refined product with appropriate informat...

Re: 100 Mile Club

On August 29, 2010 was my first century ride, where I borrowed an extra 2 batteries (total of 4). Moderate (strong in canyon at East end) onshore wind. 100.3 mile. Average moving speed: 21.0 mph. Max speed: 33.4 mph. Consumed 3 batteries fully and about 90% of 4th one ==> 1872 Wh (3.9 x 48 V x 10 Ah...

What are the changes corresponding to the "new shape/design"?

Re: Pimping the white Brothers groove 200

That's great that you found the source of the noise. With that, one can start considering options to cancelling it. I wonder how many times shrink tube can be flexed (due to spring compression) before it starts desintegrating. Maybe instead, tiny plastic clips (let's say 3 around the circumference o...

Final word on your battery?

From this posting ... My cycle analyst only shows about 0.9 Kw of used energy when the battery cuts out. I was told the missing 0.6 Kw are lost as heat. I find that rather strange, but that´s the way it is. The good thing is that the 80 Km/h top speed is really achieavable. But maybe the high speed...

Dirt bike (motorcycle) carrier

Thanks guys, a dirt bike (motorcycle) carrier system seems like a good way to go. In the USA, this could be a good choice (for carrying a Bomber and another ebike): AMC-600-2 double motorcycle carrier for 240 $US. Weight: 69 lb. Video of the single bike AMC-400 model .

Stealth Bomber: What is a good hitch-mounted rack for it?

We know the Bomber is heavy: 116 lb (53 kg) for a 2011 model, and somewhere around 94 lb (43 kg) without its battery. If you want to transport it to your favorite riding location, no worries if you have a van or a pick-up truck. But if your only option if to find a bike (or motorcycle) rack to fit a...

To get your ebike deregulated (to go above 20 mph), you just have to ask for it when ordering it.

Weight and Frame

Two motors don't add to your top speed on the flat (maybe a tiny bit). Sure adds weight though. Bottom line: Can't hurt but really doesn't help (except on monster hills).
