Re: E-bike restricted trail access and hate

Never seen those. Can't imagine them installing them around here; it'd interrupt the cars too much, and we can't have that. :/ News reports with stuff like this helped get the word out about stopping when drivers see the obnoxiously bright flashing lights: "A decoy pedestrian crossed the stree...

Re: E-bike restricted trail access and hate

Which is why I always ride my bicycle over to the Pedestrian Signal Button at the intersection and use it . Sometimes when riding my Motorcycle I have to put the side stand down , get off it and walk over and press the Pedestrian Signal Button to get the light to turn. However this does not work wi...

Re: E-bike restricted trail access and hate

But it is sad that we must "keep the peace" with folks in heavy automobiles, trains, buses etc. who somehow think we should pedal while they don't have to?!? We're not even at the point where all stinking car drivers can agree that bicycles have a right to use the road-- even though in fa...

Re: Hearing protection while riding

Lotta stuff available from music equipment outlets, stuff like Vic Firth earplugs that cut the sound level down but you can still hear well. Might be worth a shot.

Crimp Supply has contacts, possible they might be able to order the right size material or actual ones that are coated on all sides?

Re: Understanding and Using EGO Power+ Batteries

The material needed for the spades is similar to this stuff, maybe different dimensions and I’d assume getting it in bulk form is of course preferable?:

Re: Stongest tandem ebike wheel build help

How about a set of those "reserve" carbon rims Santa Cruz is offering now, the ones in the video where the pro rider attempted to destroy them? They appear nearly indestructible, probably not cheap either.

With 24" Rhynolite rim & Surly disk hub on front, bumped the stack height up some more and really improved the ride over bumps over the 20" wheel, feels like going from a 26" wheel to a 29er on a MTB. Now on the hunt for a beefy 24" tire for the front and I see there is plent...

Re: Stongest tandem ebike wheel build help

Too bad that bike doesn't have a beefy full suspension with dual coil shocks on the rear, it would probably soak up potholes and driveway curbs and laugh them off even with the weight of the battery(s).

Re: Stongest tandem ebike wheel build help

Could you post a photo of the bike and how the weight/cargo is distributed on it? I'd enjoy seeing it, most of us like seeing bikes that can carry a lot of weight.
