So the wiki has been up for a while but not much seems to be going on with it.f2s wrote:I've added a basic layout, please feel free to write and expand on the current pages ...
Motivation for me doing this is that it's just such a pain to get a general overview of components for building a DIY bike by trawling through the forum for answers.
Can I ask the admin's of endless-sphere, please for the name of all that is good, can you make sure this site is backed up on a daily basis and is tested thoroughly before this starts taking off. Nothing worse than loosing wiki data
I think importing the information that is on ES regarding product specs and different standards will go a long way towards getting the ball rolling. So much of what is on the forums is related to this kinda thing. Maybe start with building blank sub-groups of different components.GCinDC wrote: What'll it take to get people motivated, organized, and writing/editing?
Should we break up into teams? Recruit volunteers?
I've just been thinking about going to 20" or 24" fat rims, and lord knows there's a ton of info on ES about them in everyone's threads, but it'll take a lot of research... whereas if brands/sizes/specs etc were on the wiki....
and then spoke info...
I'll take you up on that. I just had to google goped and it seems I would call them "Razor-type scooters" .z50king wrote:I can write anything about gopeds if you want me to. I know a lot about the history and current models of electric gopeds. I also know a lot about the aftermarket parts, because they're many!! Haha
Let me know how I can help
Sure.headwind wrote:Hi, what do you think about adding a page something like "Watch-its for Ebay e-bikes"?
My intention isn't to poo-poo the sellers/bikes, just provide a list of stuff that people should look out for, especially on the more "budget" kits floating around. For example
- quality of wiring
- kit voltage (there's plenty of 36v kits getting around with unrealistic speed claims)
- battery weight
- replacement cost of propriety batteries
- lack of technical support from the vendor (eg they just resell the stuff and have no idea if something goes wrong)
Do you think it is worth having a wiki page like this?
Thanks, I've added it to that page. Hope what I've written is ok!marcexec wrote:Sure.
Guess you might want to expand on http://www.endless-sphere.com/w/index.php/EBike_Kits.
Maybe add recommended sellers (e.g. EM3EV).
