Re: Is REGEN, really worth it ?

From my experience regen is not worth it. Having to carry the extra weight put more stress on the wheel spokes.

Re: Tesla Model 3

Amazon and Tesla are two very different companies! You cant compare the two.

Long bike rides!!

This spring weather is great. I'm going to do a long 20 mile bike ride along lake Michigan today. Anyone else excited to break out your ebike to go on long rides? Where will you ride?

Re: Tesla Model 3

Ok so why are they deep in the red then?

How will they ever make that money back to pay bond holders?

Re: is this site legit? recycles-ebike.com

Recycling old ebikes is a good idea actually. I notice over the years most old ebikes work fine but just need a new battery.

Re: Tesla Model 3

Awesome cars, poorly run company. Where else can a company get away with never making a profit, and losing -$4000 per car?

Re: Assembling a safe fast ebike

In my view, ebikes aren't supposed to be fast. 25mph to speed is fast enough for riding in a city. I am always worried about potholes. At least out in the country you don't have to worry about traffic. I care more about range than speed.

Re: Tesla Model 3

You do realize that Tesla has never made a profit and are $4.5 billion dollars in debt? I love their cars, but how do you stay in business if you never make a profit?

Re: Tesla Model 3

Tesla should downsize and focus on luxury electric cars and self driving technology only. They are losing too much money trying to go big. Back in 2010 nobody forecasted gas prices to be this low. Its hurt the entire EV industry.

I always ride with a backpack and spare tire tube with tools in case I ever blow a tire due to pothole or glass.

Re: Criminalizing e-biking

All my guns are registered. When you go to buy one and do an FBI background check they know what you're buying and get the serial number, make model, etc. State background checks do the same thing.

If you legally buy a gun, the government tracks it. Did you know that Matador?

Re: Criminalizing e-biking

Its nearly impossible to enforce ebike laws. Unless your riding like a moron or on the sidewalk, the police wont even bother you or can even tell you're riding electric.

You don't sweat on an ebike either. Big advantage when commuting to work.
