Holstedtr's PedalUma Ad Thread

Post by Holstedtr » Jan 25 2021 2:04pm

Last night I made a dust cover for my battery that looks a lot like a water bottle. I cut off the bottom of a Gatorade bottle then used a heat gun to fit it over the battery. The USB port is accessed by unscrewing the orange top. Does it look electric? Do you have a stealthy eBike build? Pictures of some stealthy eBikes that are clean mid-drive builds are on PedalUma.com

Did you make an eBike that does not 'look' electric? Please post photos.

What do you think about the wire spaghetti on this Specialized Chisel? I put a gravel riser/drop/flare bar on this standard mountain bike. Then I dropped it from an 11-Speed to 9 because the KMC X-8 chain is stronger and thicker. It has a torque sensor mid-drive. I can easily pull the battery and use a larger one anytime or take two to do a Century ride. Let's see some of your bikes that outperform the clunky ones from stores and do not look electric. See the wire from the 'water bottle'?

Yeah it was originally in the normal ebike section, but it got moved here since it's just advertising.

Small batteries in water bottles plus hiding the motor with camera angles can make a conversion look quite clean :wink:

This is a Wicked Witch Princess Bike
It is for Tweed Run Days. I took the photo from a different angle as suggested to better show what is going on. The battery can be easily swapped for a more stealthy one. They just slide in and out of the water bottle cage. I went for one with 1/3 more capacity, and a flat top given this bike was designed in 1920 and has a lugged steel frame with internal brakes and gears. It also has baskets for the Farmers' Market and for Toto.
Do you have a clean build with a theme? Have you built a clean & classic Tweed Run electric bike?

Re: Gadgets on your eBike that you couldn't live without

It depends on the bike and style of riding. For a mountain bike I like a riser bar that drops and flairs and a dust cover for the battery that looks more like a water bottle. For a town bike I like a coffee cup holder, leather grips, a Brooks saddle and a bell. I do not want an electric bike with messy wires or a hub-drive with lag and surge or a primitive thuggish Bafang. https://pedaluma.com has some images of mid-drives with minimalist accessories such as these. Cheers to AU day!!!

You win. With your ugly, and burdened, heavy zip tie spaghetti-mess conversions suffering vulgar surge and lurch. Declare Victory. I am out. Thank you for your input. The gull out flies the turkey at PedalUma.com

Dude, i think you are missing the point. While this forum caters to people of all skill levels, many of the posters are pretty skilled.

Not trying to sound like a dick so I will just assume that maybe you didn't bother to do much looking before posting. Most people here are at least somewhat familiar with the TSDZ2. Which, for what it is has its advantages over bafangs in some ways And disadvantages in others (Check the 300 page long thread on this motor in the non hub motors sections)

You did give the impression that you were showing off builds that were stealthy, but the reality is it would be like showing off a google home Or echo and saying "Check out the stealthy home automation system I created"

On that note, on your website you claim that they use open source software, yet none of the displays on any of the bikes are the ones that are compatible with the open source flash - Which by the way, was created by users on this forum

The OP pretty clearly only came here to drive business to his website (which is why his stuff was moved to this thread/subforum). I doubt he cares about what any of us do or can do, as long as he gets more business. :/

If that is the case I'd make it a double point to not give him a cent. The first was running down people for their choices.
