Re: Handlebar Cam Catches Hit & Run

Definitely a testament to protective clothing. Lucky day for these riders as it could've been much worse! I really want front & rear cams recording 20-30 minute loops on eBike and motorcycle. At least give my family a chance to find the bastard that takes me out! I have just started working with th...

Re: Kickstand

Double legged kickstands are great on an ebike. Unfortantely, I still can't get mine to stay tight. Everyfew months I need to hit them with a wrench. Even with loc-tite. Solution: I got a frame with a kickstand plate. Hopefully that will help! And yes, there are some clearance issues for off road r...

I am using a Greenfield alloy kickstand on an aluminum Diamondback 29er with no problems.Mounts the way that you describe.Easy to cut to length.Just tighten snug enough to compress the lock washer is all that's needed.see- http://www.greenfieldny.com/chart_bicycle.htm

Re: Car hit and run with bike, caught

You couldn't pay me to ride over that bridge. Especially with a non-motored bike. Not even with a 48 volt e-bike. It's best to ride wearing a bright green reflective vest when riding in heavy traffic. Why bright green ? I wear an open mesh bicycle safety vest that is bright orange with wide silver ...

Re: Dropout Spreading Techniques

I insert a threaded rod ( for picture go to homedepot.com search "threaded rod " ) of the largest diameter that will fit in the dropouts. I have a large flat washer and nut on each side to the inside of the dropouts. Turn the nuts outward to spread the frame.

Re: SHOUTOUT to .......................... **** Pennslyvania

Thanks for this heads up. Yes, on first reading the 100 lb weight limit I was taken aback but this is an overview. The final intention is not clear to me because just as I doubt that the bike would have to be incapable of going faster than 20 mph by any means,I also doubt that the total weight of th...

Re: NJ- When an e-bike is not a moped

jerseygirl, since you are working with Senator Van Drew on this, please consider this solution. The law which I quoted at the start of this thread could have the definition of an electric personal assistive mobility device amended to include the Federal electric bicycle law definition. This would ha...

Re: NJ- When an e-bike is not a moped

The NJMV Moped Manual p.1 Define a Moped ,only uses the words piston displacement motor and does not say electric motor. Debatable as it's only a book and can be a misprint. But, http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/Vehicle/Mopeds.htm " for a vehicle to qualify as a moped,it must meet all four of the followin...

Re: NJ- When an e-bike is not a moped

A segway it is then. To me a two wheel tandem bicycle is a bicycle built for two. A two seater. A tandem.I thought that the intent was to limit electric assist to a single seat bicycle,therefore having everything to do with e-bikes.Thanks for the comments. I live in the Garden State too, and being a...

What would I do ? Stop, turn right, ride to an area of clear vizabilty and make a u-turn. Sounds like a trick question on a drivers exam.
