SO TRUE! I am predicting that once the Beta hits the main stream with enthusiasts around the world, demand will exceed production. I get inquiries about the Beta and how to buy them weekly, and of course, I send them to you Jay. Strange actually, know one has asked me how to get an Alpha frame. The Alpha is also awesome, whats up with that?Hyena wrote:The finished product makes up for what ever reservations you may have about the name

My guess is because eBikes in Europe are so under poweredDasDouble wrote:Aaahh.. THIS One.. Right xD
Different question: Why is stealth or a brand like that not on the Eurobike? Does someone know? I think it's time to let people see what a real electric bike looks like..
So do I. Ford mustang GT for example can have be driven unrestricted on public roads even though it has a top speed of over 150MPH. But its not illegal because of having the power on tap to go that fast. its illegal when the driver exceeds the posted speed limit. But with ebikes, the standards aren't consistent, if I have a 6kw ebike, however, I never go over 20MPH until I am offroad, I should be able to be left alone just like any other bicycle, however, if I go 50MPH in a 20MPH zone, then hold me to the same level of accountability as a person in a car or on a motorcycle. I have no problems with that. Most places in the US, this is not an issue.....yet, but its coming.Altair wrote:I find the whole concept of regulating the power of a vehicle... absurd.
All cars, motorcycles and trucks on the road are not regulated power-wise. It is the DRIVER who is responsible for following the laws, the most important (to the police anyway), being the speed limits.
You can buy a car with any amount of power you want, that doesn't change anything to the fact that you're still limited to the same laws as everybody else.
So what are they trying to do with this ridiculous law anyway?. Just enforcing it requires sophisticated equipment to measure the E-bike, and the knowledge to interpret the readings.
This is an open invitation to cheating by all technically knowledgeable E-bikers.
Will only serve to complicate the acceptance of electric vehicles all over the world.
OK, that was quite off-topic for this thread. Sorry.
that brought it straight to the pointDanGT86 wrote:I think the reason there are power level restrictions on ebikes is because there are no licensing and insurance requirements. You can buy a mustang or motorcycle with an unlimited top speed because there are many levels of accountability required to operate it on public roads. Because there is no record keeping, registration, or liability insurance requirements on an ebike they just limit the power and speed.
Let me guess, efforts are being focused on the MIDI E?Allex wrote:Yeah no max-e for now, and wont be for a couple of months
So nobody can say what is exactly "different"?Allex wrote:Who wants some max-es? I can probably offer them really soon, before Christmas.
The new controller does have minor improvements over the previous ones. Nothing fancy, just better protection against failures I guess so you have less chances to blow fets.
