Is it REALLY Really really safe now? May be not. I'm only moving one of my post over per day. I'd hate to see this thread locked again just because @#$%^%$#. Pretty unfair I think.

Almost always true. But there are always exceptions. I'm not broke, not making minimum wage. I don't commute on bicycles or Ebikes or buses. But it's a challenge for me to build things at the lowest cost possible.dogman wrote: No question which bike I'd have if I was dead broke and making minimum wage. If the choice was something under $500, or walking miles to a bus that comes by once an hour.
That's where I got stuck. If those people can't be bothered with a DIY setup, what's the chance for them to do upgrade? Upgrading the sprocket/freewheel on the EZip (https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... =3&t=25726) might be a "trivial" task to most guys, but definitely not trivial to others.Pure wrote:Some people don't even want to bother with even trying a DIY setup...
As DA has proven the bikes are upgradeable...

EZip Basics ... Electric Bike or Electric Assist Bike
What can I do to improve it?
1st ... cheapest best improvement! EZip - EZip - IZip 20mph Upgrade $20! - 16 to 20 mph upgrade
Voltage upgrade 36V - about $50 for a controller = 50% higher speed & torque (+ battery - of course!)
44.4V upgrade - about $50 for a controller - 44 MAGNUM - 30+++ mph - 1.11HP (+ battery - of course!)
Homemade Battery Packs
7 mile range increased to 40-50+ miles - no pedaling - cost? recycled cells - about $40-50

At the very worst ... it will help you decide:
What features you want-need in a "real" eBike.
Could save you a fortune, in a "wrong" purchase.
Newer models use a much quieter motor.
Some report that, some newer models use an easily replaceable motor freewheel = simple $20 upgrade to 20mph.

That may or may not happen. It may even go higher. I'm sure you already know the best place to buy anything is somewhere with a price guarantee. Amozon (provided it is actually coming from Amozon) may offer this. For sure places like Wally World would.
