car replacement ebike. ive never been that much into biking once I started driving but was out of shape so I bought a cheap bike for exercise but the hills around me were too much exercise so I bought a cheap kit then biking became fun. I bought better bikes and better motors, batteries, controllers. get more speed, power, range, a new hobby for me really but I live in a rainy city so a bike couldn't replace a car. I don't work in an office where I can change my clothes when I get to work. then I moved, we had 3 vehicles and only 2 parking spots so I sold my minivan.
im cheap I like the whole 1000 mpg cost of ebikes without the insurance costs. I bought a well used and abused trike for cheap. I was amazed at how easy it was to pedal compared to a bike then I put a kit on it. now that is fun, a street legal go kart and comfortable but laying on your back doing 30 in the rain isn't fun so I wound up buying 2 tents for the parts and materials and built a canopy, nose piece and windshield. now I have an all weather car replacement etrike. I think trikes are going to be the way to go if they would just get their initial cost down. theres no way ordinary people are going to pay 8 grand for a trike. im into mine for around 2 grand the way its sitting right now and that's pretty reasonable when you consider the negative sides of Trikes. theres a good chance of becoming road kill because of lack of safe road infrastructure, I pretty much have to plan a safe round about way of getting somewhere if I take the trike or I have to plan on doing 30mph on some stretches so I don't piss off drivers but then I might piss off a cop and be minus a windshield and canopy. basically my trike is good for rain and ice but if its nice and I gotta go, ill take the bike. also after almost one year I lost 30 pounds because of riding ebikes and I really don't pedal but it does get you up and out of the chair and active again plus it puts a smile on your face.
im pretty sure I have to adjust the toe on my trike, I saw a guy using one of those old chrome telescoping radio antennas like a micrometer to set his toe
