My name is Don but I go by the moniker baggywrinkle.
I've been cycling off and on since 1959. Less so in recent years, but life happens.
My daughter bought a used electric bike when she was at FSU in Tallahassee and loved it.
She talked about getting stopped by the police because they couldn't figure out how she was
going so fast - in a skirt yet - and not breaking a sweat. I've always been a gadget geek and
her stories jarred me out of my slumber.
You could say I have returned to my roots. I've launched a website dedicated to electric bikes and
what is possible. While it is an affiliate site, I do have a blog on there called electric bike talk.
Please do go check it out, tell me what you think and how I could improve it. Help me grow it.
If any of you would like to submit guest articles please do contact me. It has only just begun, so it could go
in any direction. For example; as a gadget geek I am fascinated by the possibilities of combining batteries and
ultracapaitors. Especially graphene ultracapacitors. I know early attempts haven't gone too well, but lasersaber on
youtube starts his car with a small battery/ultracap setup. How might this apply to ebike batteries?
I also love the Ryno micro-cycle. Not enough to buy one, but I'd love to play with one for an afternoon
