BTW Have you lowered your stem below the max-extension line yet?
Nar man, but I don't ride the Diamondback any more, going to dump it on cycling recycle's or hard rubbish day. I had it as my backup ebike for since last month but since I blew the controller I wont be using it again, just going to strip it of any good bits, the end.
I have had a second ebike (Giant) that I crashed a few months ago, I was rolling down a hill (no motor active) and a oncoming car turned onto my side of the road to drive up a side street and didnt see me and drove front side of his car on into me. I went over the handle bars, then powered down on his bonnet, left a huge metal crater and then landed on the other side of the car on the road.
The police happened to be sitting 3 meters away (might of caused the driver to turn into me in haste) they got out of their car photographed the scene etc and determined that "the car driver had driven into incoming traffic (me)"
I was physically OK somehow but it was a miracle. The car driver was very apologetic and said he would make sure insurance paid for the bike etc.
Insurance told me to get the bike assessed and they said the bike was a write-off and could not be safely repaired. His insurance company did come through for a new bike money.
I got a Trek DS 8.4 with all the trimmings, Shimano Acera M395 hydralic brakes with cut off sensors, Sinewave S12 controller with LCD display, Bafang CST 500W motor with a fully comp/smooth 9speed cassette Shimano Alivio/Deore 27-speed drivetrain (48T crank).
Complete with a 3rd generation 27.2mm Thudbuster LT edition with 76 mm travel suspension seatpost (but I haven't put it on yet), bike is still going to be tweaked over time.
Just shows you, if you put your head down and pedal hard, good things can happen in life
If anyone is wondering did any one notice/care my busted bike was an ebike the answer was no, the cops help even put my busted bike in the boot of the car and one of them even knew the type he goes 'thats a hybrid style giant isn't it?', I said yep, and that was it. Maybe if I had needed an ambulance things would of been different, I just went home and checked in with a doctor to patch up my knee.
Also this is another reason why 29ers/700c bikes rule, because if I was on my 26inch Diamondback my wheels wouldn't of been big enough to allow me to be catapulted over the car, instead of would of been impaled by my handlebar neck stem.
