Nice project Dave! More power is hard to resist, hope you stay safe on that beast. Wish I had made it to ElectraFest.
Hey John! Yes, I have to remind myself to take it easy... So nice being able to choose where cars will pass (if at all) here with the narrow twisting roads. Every time I get on this thing I can't believe how good it is. The regen braking is fantastic, I basically hardly use the regular brakes at all. 1.6 KW of braking above about 30 km/h
That's a pretty cool project. Could make an interesting Boosted Trikes article.
Not familiar with boosted trikes, I'll have to check it out...
Looks sharp. I like the look of those motors on the front. How is it to peddle with no power ?
It pedals just fine, the cogging resistance of the motors is not really noticeable. It still out accelerates a road bike if we both just coast down a hill. With all this power I still pedal most of the time as I want to get some exercise.
Holy crap! You did it!
More images please!
OK, I will get some more pics...
Left and right handle bar throttle. Plus a muxus 3,000 on the rear with a dual foot throttle. You knew it was coming.
I admit it has crossed my mind to add another motor, it would be an acceleration monster... But it is really enough now, I'm not aiming to drag race.
