    Ouch! For that price I could hire someone to do the peddling for me :)

    I have two panels now: one flexible and the other a folder, but I'll have to check the wattage. Like you say, the output,...

    Solar Panel for Electric Recharge

    I am considering a cross USA ride with my Big Dummy soon. It currently has a Bionx system on it, but I can easily take that system off and put my stock rear wheel on. My initial thoughts were to go...

    I may have lived a sheltered life. Or, the thought of having one of those on my bike still was so horrible that I completely shut it out of my memory.



    That is sooo retro. I had one on my...

    Go for a mid-drive or Stoke Monkey since you have steep hills (they use your bike's gearing).

    Post #45 . This my friends is where someone finally took the bait and changed the tone to "serious." Wow, I am actually surprised that it took that long, but "great on you" for those that are...
  9. BionX Battery Mounted on Surly Big Dummy

    I see that the battery will not mount on the water bottle area on the TOP of the seat stay. There is not enough room. It could of course fit on the water bottle mounts on the down tube, but I'd...

    Good on that 53 chainring, as my 48 x 13 spins too fast at 20 mph for a cargo bike (fine on the road bike). Also, the Stoke Monkey is recommended for hilly areas.

    I have about 700 miles on my Xtracycle Edgerunner and love it. Responding to your comment about the BD's straight top tube, the ER has the nice sloped one. Also, I find that the 20" rear wheel has...

    Are you on a bike or walking? If you are walking you might care, but on a bike it poses an interesting question. As far as I know, they are not regulatory, but informational. For example, if they...

    Both - or ones that have a platform and the other side clipless. That way any of the family can ride it, or I can go in flip flops for a casual ride.

    Same here (horn) once and at the top of a bridge - very dangerous. Got their plate number, got their address, and a couple of days later (dressed in my suit) went to the house. Dad answered the...
