Re: Battery Fire.

I've been charging ebike batteries for about 10 years now and never had a problem. I don't take apart and play with the inside of my packs either. I charge the pack in the corner of basement. Never had a problem.

Re: How many miles on your e-bike?

2234 miles on my folding ebike. Mostly for commuting to work, but also riding for fun. Running a 48V AllCell Battery. Kevlar tires, puncture resistant tire tubes.. No flats so far.

Re: How many miles on your e-bike?

My ebike has around 2600 miles. Everything on the bike works great. Just needs new tires because the treads are worn pretty good. Brake pads are worn and need to be replaced too.

Re: Public parking; How to prevent damage/vandalism to bike?

I tell people to try and make your ebike blend in with other regular bikes. Dont have wires and gadgets sticking out. Dont clean it. Make it not stand out. It's best to take the battery pack with you. I use 2 kryptonite U locks on my ebike. Never had a problem with theft or vandalism.

If you want a cheap ebike you will NOT get quality. No different than any vehicle.

Re: Help a Newbie Build or Buy His First Ebike.

Kevlar tires and thicker self healing tire tubes are essential to any ebike builds

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.

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: 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.
