First off, I had a great time and thank you Eric and Ollie for the great food. Next time I'll bring some too.
Nothing quite as to fun to watch as Eric towing Ilia's xtra cycle up a 10-15% grade. We got some amazed looks with the two of you coming up the hill.
Both my packs were toast by the time I hit BART as well. the last 4 miles home unpowered were difficult. it hit me that we'd ridden 25 miles with a a 15 lb backpack on the whole way, then came the hillclimb home. I stupidly tried to use my Lipo pack for that, sagged from 40 to 22v
in about 3 seconds.
I'm nursing it back to health right now.
I have to say, the Konion cells fail much more gracefully, the 36v pack dropped from 35v to 30v over the course of 5 miles, it gives plenty of warning you're getting low on gas.
Great ride guys.
Wow I've been here 7 years! had a kid and took a break. Back on a Vector Ebike just for fun.
Broken bike and electric bits everywhere. Sometimes it's a bike and I ride it.
Broken too much crap. pulled 3kw from a 350 watt ebike kit motor, pulled 100c out of HK lipo. much melted wire and plastic. Amazed at the progress this group has made in ebiking.
