    My home built recumbent tandem/Bionx

    I built this bike about 11 years ago; check out details on it at : http://tender-learning-care.com/mybike.html . My wife & I rode it a lot for the first 9 years, over 24,000 miles, but we really quit for the last 2 years (house remodel & other stuff got in the way). When we tried to get going again, it just seemed awfully hard to build up to any kind of distance. I got the Bionx 350L 2 weeks ago and the bike is fun again!

    Thanks Allen, I took it on a 34 mile ride last Saturday & with a little coaxing (some regen & some flatland boost set @ zero) got home with one bar still left on the battery. Bike's pretty heavy & so are the "passengers" but a flatland run without pedaling leveled out @ 17.4 mph. Looks like it's gonna be ok.

    Wow, what a beautiful bike, bigjohn. You did a great job building it. Welcome to the e-bike community. I think you'll love power assist. I know my knees appreciate the help, especially given that I now live in the Rockies. Have fun.

    Thanks nwmntnbkr, I've already noticed a difference in the knees, we've gone over 150 miles in the last week, which is about twice what we went last year. Be sure to check the link I included in my original post,it includes a pdf of an article on the bike that I wrote for RCN.

    Yeah the rear rack is less than ideal. I have a new battery on route for this season that I plan to get into the frame so I can loosen the rear shock back up again.
    I built the bike in the 90's and electrified it 2 summers back and put some (needed) new forks on it. My sla's are far from holding a full charge but they should be some fun to run 24V in my kids 12V ride-ons they've outgrown, until they're completely dead

    Bought another one :)

    Has a wobbly rear wheel, 08 model with 2 batteries that work for $250, I fig. if I have to get a new rim and respoke it's still a steal. Bought sight unseen, paypalled and beat over 20 people to the deal


    Picked this one up for my kids (but I ride it ) and it was a steal for $120 too
    I even got the matching helmet and battery holds enough charge to just get to work. Runs really strong with my 8 and 9 year old on it, 24V so hills really effect it and no pedals to help


    Good cheap fun, I wish I could say that for the one above, I've had some probs and hope to have it running perfect this weekend, not touching the blue one yet.

    Seriously, I would like to have a bike EXACTLY like the one you got your father. I like the battery in the rack, the basket... I looked at Estelle bikes and couldn't find one just like this one. They all have the "saddlebag" style battery. Any info on this bike would be much appreciated. Thanks, Angie

    When battery is there, don't you have to raise the seat to get the battery out????

    Angie,

    Allen may be able to point you to the best source for a bike like his father's. There is an online retailer that builds custom e-bikes, including an electrified 3-spd Biria EZBoard--http://www.oldesaltbikes.com/osbshop...=6&idproduct=3. They use the Wilderness Engergy kit with a 36V 600W hub motor, which may not be the best choice--it also only comes with a SLA battery pack, which you'd need to replace. The warranty for the electric hub system also isn't that long. However, maybe they'd be willing to customize an 8-speed Biria with a different hub motor system, if you can't find someone close to you who can customize a bike for you. Good luck.

    New guy here on the forum, this is my second post. My first was about charging the batteries.

    I just built my first E bike effort. It's an EZ-Glide conversion kit built on a Wally World coaster bike. It seems to work just fine for my purposes.

    The coaster brakes were semi useless so I retrofitted a set of caliper brakes to the included hand levers. Big improvement!
