Ok.. many replies to cover..
melodious , yes and no, the trike should be ok certain trips, but there are places i go that a trike will not be safe to use, so the e-BMX and the other 2 wheelers will remain in service....
motorino magnet , cost, check with recumpence, shipping is what really makes a difference, i paid retail 1650 $ but got a really good deal on shipping
.. at 6ft 5 and 250 you are at the upper limit of these things, wheel size is the biggest concern, 20/24 is what my ideal setup required so that's what i got.. but depending on hub or chain drive and all that, determines what you need, the frames appear identical across the various models, it's a matter of wheel size and components ( brake, shifters etc. ) .
The fingers, information is key, take the time to read up on the details and go from there, i decided on the KMX knowing it would electrify, and the square tubes make easy mounting of various things..
Sacman , hell yeah, i'm going to ride around for a few days to get the thing dialed in, then comes the X5304 in 24" i have in a box ready to go.. along with an 18 fet controller for 24s lipo and 100 amps.. *note to self.. contact doctorbass and order another set of dropout plates....
Very cool ypedalman.
Pure : " So for the front brakes, What keeps one from pulling more than the other? Is it as simple as adjusting the cable tension? "
That, was interesting, the bike comes complete but not tuned up, the brake pads needed adjusting so that the calipers would not rub, once that was done, i pulled in all the barrel adjusters on the calipers and brake lever ends, pulled out the slack from teh cables, then using a rubber band to apply a fixed pressure on the brake lever i adjusted the barrels so that both wheels would come to a stop from a light manual spin equally.. then removed the rubber band and they are both engaging equally..
I'm sure there are better ways.. but that's how i did it without looking it up online.
