    In total Contrast to my Norco..

    This is a Giant ATX 890 with front wheel eZee brushless geared motor.

    Battery is made from the same green " Konion " cells as Dr.Bass recycled from dead Makita cordless tool packs, 36v 3ah of these weighs about 2 lbs and will power the 20 amp controller just fine ( well.. they get hot.. but who cares at the price i paid )

    This is a lightweight, power assist bike, i use this after work for exercise, it levels out the hills nicely and keeps me rolling in top gear. Good drivetrain components on this bike, nice V brakes, great pedal bike and weighs under 40 lbs battery included !!!

    Built this for a local guy, retired, goes to florida for the winter with his ebike on the back !

    Built him a Crystalyte 4011 in a 700C wheel, 48v 8ah Nicad, goes all of 25 km/h but that's all he wanted.. will get good range at that speed too..

    Thanks !.. alot of work went into those packs.. started with a flat sheet of transparent polycarb and ended up with those after alot of hours and alot of beer..

    This is the " Chopper " ..

    Rear crystalyte X5305 with modded controller, 60v 12ah of LiFePo4, massive 3" wide front tire ( Kenda Flame ) rear 2" hookworm, Front disk brake only.. not for everyone to hop on and cruise, You need to understand how to stop on this thing !!!! ie: Carefully !

    No pedals yet, this will change soon, but for testing the motor and controller it's a very comfy ride..

    BikeE Recumbent, built this for a friend locally, took me a while to build this one, 1st Cyclone 500w kit i put on a bike.. running 24v 12ah LiFePo4 ( same as my chopper ) .. modified original cyclone throttle to use a clyte thumb, Cycle Analyst meter, front fairing, light, comfy, all round good ride.. I"m not a very big fan of the 500w motor noise however, being used to brushless gearless hub motors i'm spoiled at the stealth factor.. Has held up well. still going strong. I"ve had to repair the battery after it was left plugged into the controller for a month on standby..

    Wilderness BL Kit on a cheap Walmart Roadmaster. The shifters were crap, so I did a ghetto single speed. I put 1.5 city slicks and a new flat bar. It rides perfectly and I get up to 24mph.

    Got my bike around July (after waiting almost a month for it to be shipped, was well worth it), managed to rack up almost 1000 Km before putting it away for the cold.

    It got me into more chats at coffee shops, and questions at red lights......
    Most asked question......How many miles to the gallon?
    Most given answer.....I'm not sure I'm still waiting for the gas gauge to show E :-)
    Then as they cruse beside me a bit and speed on by stunned by the lack of noise I always hear......"That can't be battery powered!"

    I am just chomppin at the bit to get out in the open air again





    I'm just a caveman. I fell asleep on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my fax machine, I wonder: "Did little demons get inside and type it?" I don't know! My primitive mind can't grasp these concepts.

    I have a generic, old 10-speed, that I ride 1-3 miles a day, but I wd prefer a vintage Raleigh (or so) 3 speed, w/ electric drive.

    Hey, all. This is an awfully good blog, text info and pics. I've been reading up on e-bikes for a year now. Regardless of the price of oil, bicycling is fun and healthful. So are avoiding traffic and beating the system however possible. Brushless electric assist is a breakthrough and the obvious way to go.

    Here's my situ. I am a semi-retired professor and a dedicated town-y commuter, for the last two years. Very fit for my age. Drive my car once or twice a month when unavoidable. (On the verge of selling it, but, ya know, eek.) Ride bike to work and errands within a 5-mile radius. I have two touring bikes, both yard-sale steals -- one, a 70s steel frame 10 speed; the other, a new-ish Chinese aluminum 21 speed w racing tires. I use two or three gears only. Want fenders for rain and saddlebags for shopping. Back pack does fine for now.

    When I turned 11, my Raleigh 3-speed was suddenly passe, and I HAD to have a 10-speed!, which I now consider a mistake. Similarly, an MTB in town makes as much sense to me as an SUV. I'm not into name brands or displays of wealth. Style shmyle! I want the most practical machine. So here is the emerging pattern.

    My fantasy bike is a restored Raleigh (or a good knock off) 3-speed w/ fenders, baskets, lights, etc. And a kit, definitely a kit, say, a Bionx 350. But Bionx is a name brand. Don't necessarily need a Bionx. I ain't no math genius but 1000 cycles seems about twice as good as 500 and worth the extra cost. Same for Li-Ion and Li-Po, whatever's lightest and strongest. Somewhere in this mix, my desire to beat the system takes the forms of do-it-myself (e.g. kit) and cheap (e.g. yard sales and E-bay).

    Thanks for reading. Keep up the good blog. Please advise.

    I build electric recumbent bikes in Northern California. I have built one bike for a customer with a 15AH 24V LifePo4 battery from China. The shipping was 100.00 but the price on the battery was about 1/3 of what I have found elsewhere. The battery seemed to do just fine. I got it in about a week. I got to test ride the bike for a few miles before I gave it to the customer, it seemed to run strong. Time will tell. This is one of the duct tape batteries. I have read that others had success with them and I had a guy that wanted to try one on his bike. Best of luck,

    Mountain bike conversion to e-bike

    Here is my project:

    1. Diamond Back Sorrento MB
    2. New upgraded conversion kit from e-bikekit.com: 36V 500W system with 3 - 12 V SLA batteries.

    Today I flew past a couple roadies; they tried to race me but I was long gone with minimal pedaling in high gear!

    http://blog.wired.com/cars/2008/09/solar-trikey-ma.html

    The full story here.





    Greenspeed 20/26 GTR trike (1991). Heinzemann 24 volt 200 watt hub motor mounted by Greenspeed (2007). 2x12 AH lead acid 12 volt batteries. 20 Watts of Unisolar flexible photovoltaic panels hardwired to regulator to batteries. BoB monotrack trailer.

    Max Speed - motor only 24 km/h. Range. Indefinite. During daylight batteries recharge as I'm riding. On flat ground I can pedal at about 18-20 km/h unassisted without too much strain, depending on the load in the trailer. Without trailer, under ideal conditions can crank to 40+ km/h, unassisted.

    Excellent for trips to the city (25 km) as well as local shopping. Can tote 30+ kilograms.

    The second photo shows the trailer carrying a fold-up bicycle which I took to the shop for some repairs.
