Re: Long Distance High Efficiency

I like what pdf said about the tires - it came stock with 700x35's and they do a great job. Roads here are pretty nice - only one stretch bumpy that's under construction. I want to get back to that bike sometime, but for now, I'll set that subject aside and move on to something else: You guys with t...

Long Distance High Efficiency

Any attention is better than no attention, so here goes: Mission: 35 mile-each-way commute to work. 25mph or faster, two significant hills each way, about 4% grade. Pedaling OK, but want to make sure I'm getti...

Re: kmxtornado's first e-bike conversion build thread *photo

sk8norcal, thanks for your "ride report", and thanks to kmxtornado for giving you the chance for a test ride. I'm going crazy guys. I've been needing to do a build something bad. I'll start another thread, similar to the one kmxtornado did (and was impressively successful with) and put out my specs,...

Don't get me going on the concept of "poor design". I stay constantly annoyed at the way lights and accessories are designed for bicycles, especially the low-cost ones. I think I know the lights you are trying out - they have a rubber band loop that holds them onto a vertical tube member, right? I'v...

Re: AmpedBikes Newbie Build/Review

Hey Stanz; Can you post some follow-up comments on the performance of your AmpedBikes conversion? I'm about to take the plunge and buy a conversion kit. But my mission is extreme, so I have some apprehension. Here's the scoop: 1) I'm 260lbs right now. (Part of the reason for an e-bike, to drop lb's)...
