Re: ezee or 9 continents for touring?

Pookie, I think you should go with a geared freewheel system. If for any reason you need to pedal and have no power left in the coulomb tank, and it's a long way to go to the next stop, you'll be thankful you had a freewheel to work with instead of any (even slight) cogging affects. And I know you (...

Re: Has anyone heard from Brett White?

Hi Marshy,

What's the typo? I have tried the international # but as you say, it is wrong. Do you know the correct #?

Re: Has anyone heard from Brett White?

I am becoming concerned quite a bit myself too. Brett is a good guy, but something is amiss. I too have been waiting an extraordinarily long time for some product and the communications line has vanished as of late. It may be he is on a holiday break, not sure, but he has certainly gone stealth. Any...

Re: Kill-A-Watt hack job

Great pics TD ! The explanations would get lost on me if I didn't see the layout so well,,,, nice. :) The jumper legs that look weak could get some wire attached and soldered on, or simply goop on some more solder. Still, it comes down to what the limit is for the meltdown to take place. That 1875 w...

Re: Need ideas to make simple watthour meter for ePower race

Thanks guys. SW, so far so interesting, the tech is just a bit beyond what I can do, so as far as progressing or just roughly penciling ideas like this out, it will take some input from dudes like you to push it farther. If you have the time to think it thru farther, great. And if others chime in, p...

Need ideas to make simple watthour meter for ePower race

Hi All, Tom here, with the ePower Challenge race (e-assist racing) out of Portland Oregon. As some of you already know, we last year hosted a new category of bicycle racing to our venue of HPV and electrathon events, the electric assist bike category. It was very cool and a lot of fun to see what th...

Re: newbie with aspirations!

Howdy Clueless, Just out of curiousity, what do you mean by "reverse trike" ? Tadpole or delta configuration? There have been so many varieties of both configurations with either an unfaired version or a streamlined one via an enclosure, I was curious as to your design and which aero desig...

Hi Brett,
Vid worked ok for me! I could make out the volt reading, and the tach. Was that the 500 watter 320 rpm version on the bench?

Re: Swagman Rear Cargo box is sweet.. link and info

Howdy. Last week when all the Swagmans had dried up at Amazon, I poked around a bit on the web and found them at Camping World. They are $22 bucks plus shipping. Shipping for me was $11 , so it came out to $33, pretty close to the Amazon price. You can click on the shipping button to find out how mu...

Re: New Puma motors on the way to teamhybrid

With all the new dimensioning of this version of the Puma, what about the internal keying of the axle/rotor so that it wouldn't slip due to the higher torques that were exhibited by the Puma, and were thus changed from the older pressed on version that was the original type? Did that modification ma...

Any word yet as to the specs on the adaptor? Many hub motors have left side threading on them and the cool use of a disc brake is way yummy. Sure would be helpful to the troups to be able to utilize a standardized adaptor that we could pop our " regular" sized rotors onto. So, got anything...
