Re: Dozens of Bicycles Recovered!

those stupid bicycle racks,
building designers still put them outside buildings, they were OK in 60-70ties, but now?
If I cannot roll my ebike inside between entrance doors, I do not use this business.

Re: Dozens of Bicycles Recovered!

No there were not ebikes recovered as far as I know.
In such turist area where bikes are often rented bikes are easy target
probably tourists leave them all over the place

Re: observable symptoms as cells degrade

We can picture internal resistance as resistor in series with cell.
As it ages this resistor value increases.
This internal resistance causes voltage drop

This LED light from Princess Auto.
What battery it would take to power it on ebike? Just wonder?
Is it not overkill for ebike?
So many LEDs for given lumen output would suggest there are not latest LED technology.

Re: What E-Bike Rack do you use?

In at least 20 years I transported my ebike once.
On minivan.
I ride my ebike to destination.
Don't use fossil fuel to get there to start riding
I start riding from home.
I guess regular double biker rack would handle one even heavy ebike

Re: Baked

Horrible
It was just matter of time with no any thermal protection.
So another one baked.
I understand opening it and installing thermal protection is hard job but if controller accept thermal sensor, thermistor input is it just obvious thing to do?

I been seeing Lime ebike abandoned all of over Calgary some of them in the middle of no where for example industrial area.
To sabotage such ebike would have been very easy with nobody around.
One abandoned in Foothills Industrial in the middle of sidwalk for 3 days.
