Oh yea - forgot why I raised this thread from the dead.
I need a CroMotor or equivalent for my trike.
Of course I want used
Of course I could care less about scratches and dings and dead halls and rubbed wires.
Ideally I would like one in the flavor of John Holmes -
Laced into a motorcycle rim
As the bike tires cant hold down the torque
I want to FEEL it... no burnouts... just rubber pulling on road
Been "Bat mobile'ing" it around Santa Cruz quite a bit. Even a decade later people act like they have never seen a KMX trike
No wonder it is taking folks so long to realize that there are Walkers,
There are bikers,
There are drivers....
But there is a whole different class out there
They are quiet
They are quick
They have 8" disk brakes and a 20 mile range....
They weigh only a few hundred pounds with rider
They dont really belong on the road with the 3 kilo-pound cars
They dont really belong on the sidewalk -
or do they?
The walkers think they OWN the sidewalk
The drivers think they OWN the road
They seem to both think that "it was so it shall be"
If that is the way we are looking at it...
I own both the road and the sidewalk.
I am not a walker, a bike, a car, a motorcycle, a moped, or a "Motor Vehicle"
Maybe I am a segway
Maybe I am a pedal assist
Maybe I am bionic...
All I know... is that we are just starting to wrap our minds around the change necessary to embrace lithium into our daily lives as THE mainstream.
Gas Stations die
Oil investors go broke
Infrastructure changes... cars drive themselves... more people adopt electric assist...
The never ending Wild West is what it feels like
... I keep waiting for people to change as fast as those on the cutting edge are ...
It aint happening
Looks like its on to the next generation
... Its working here in Santa Cruz ...
Kids all over the place on Jump Bikes
They are hooked
Its like kRacK!
... Once you go E-Bike, you never go back
Increasing battery voltage and controller current limit will result in a non linear experience
