Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Great to see the new owners coming onboard and getting their first tastes of ebike riding - now you know why we rave about our bikes :-) I've been hard at work in my off-road track lab to come up with a lighting system that I'd be happy to take onto a 24hr race or hard night ride, which is where I'v...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

As much as I like the new lights option from Stealth, I wanted something more in keeping with the rest of the lines of the bike, so I've come up with a different light/mounting system as an alternative, relies on the use of a very solid COB light with internal battery, IP65 weatherproofing, mounted ...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

OK, so Hyena(+boat anchor) + me = 2.5 entrants. I'm sure we can scrape up more interest than that, even if his bikes combined output represents >2 bikes on its own. There is already an open class, but you'll find yourself up against an R1 Ripperton in that. Good luck to you taking that on. See http:...

Re: E-S Stealth Electric Bike Owners

Here's one for the East Coast of Australia (NSW) owners..I'm canvassing the owner crowd to see who might be interested in taking part in a dedicated race format on GoKart track as part of an EV festival in 2014, FOR STEALTH BIKES, here in the Hunter region. I raced my demo Yellow Fighter this year, ...

Re: Ripperton down..we have a Ripperton down

The 1500 class racing was a lot of fun - I could happily have gone on to do another 5-10laps. Which might have made me a bit more competitive against UoN's ApriliaRS125, which had a farily tightly specced battery capacity to match the require range needed for 10 laps. A longer race would have worked...

Re: Ripperton down..we have a Ripperton down

Heh. As the rider of the Stealth I only had very brief glimpses of Danny as he bolted past me on my Stealth. Video response below will show you how much he left me lingering in his dust at the 1m40s mark. Nt9F03QmOXg But at least I didn't stack it ;-) I was hoping Danny might pass a little closer so...

I know some of you will like this. Others will look at it and ask what the hell a Fighter is doing racing on a GoKart track against EV'd Aprilia RS125 and R1 Ripperton Superbike. All I'm going to say is, yes, it was a HELLUVA LOT OF FUN.. Nt9F03QmOXg See the accompanying PR post at http://store.quie...

There was a question posed earlier about seating preferences also - I've opted to fit a Brooks B17 standard saddle. Bit pricey but they are the rolls royce of seats, superb comfort that just gets better and better. One of my customers was sold on it after trying out my Fighter, even in pouring rain....

Whilst I'm here, thought I'd ask the question of whether anyone has come across a bike seat-post clamp that can also clamp to a bull-bar. I have in mind a nice simple work stand that's 80% bulbar, 20% clamp..mind you, it's clearly going to be limiting access to one side of the bike at a time. :-) P...
