    HPVelo Scorpion and Sun EZ3 AX with Cyclone 360W assist and solar panels. All well and good, but it is a velomobile (my Sun pretends to be one) for which my heart pines. Ah, one day, soon!

    My crystal ball has never worked right, so I can't see or predict which of the many claims of "just around the corner" will come true or be relegated to the BS pile. At age 61, "just around the...

    Growing up is still as hard as it was in the '50's, '60's . . . . ad nauseum, ad infinitum. Kids want to think of themselves as being tough, even though they don't have the life experience to be so....

    On my HPVelotechnik Scorpion - all the time. On an orange metalflake recumbent trike with a Windwrap fairing and a 'Devilwoman' Scorpion flag, it's inevitable. I just realize folks are saying...

    Never! My wife rides my last df - she's happy, I'm happy. She likes to 'go fast', I like to smell the roses and enjoy the view (which is way better on a recumbent trike). A big plus is that it...

    FIAMM twin trumpet air horns - sold at most 'discount' auto parts stores (ie. PEPBoys, Autozone). Very loud, runs off 12v, but for the short duration of each horn blast, I can't see why it wouldn't...

    After the last time one of these questions popped up, I over-reacted, so, I'm gonna try not to do so this time. As a cyclist, my bonafides in 2008 were 4400 miles riding a 37# recumbent trike, over...

    "Physics suck" Da*n right, I hate physics, ruins everything, all the best ideas are ruined by physics. What we really need are hand held cold fusion generators! I'd work on it if it were not for...

    Yup, cold, snow, hills (glacial moraines) but generally well plowed streets. Just gotta wait for the slush to dry up, then, I'm out. Being retired, it isusually for a cup of coffee and a bagel. ...

    Light snow, temps above 30 d. f., perfect day for an assisted trike ride to Panera, followed by a trip to Lowe's for some faucet water supply hose in braided stainless. State Trooper lit me up, just...

    How was your commute today? 2009

    BROL has a thread like this for those that ride their bikes to commute. I'm retired, so, I ride my home made assisted velomobile to commute to Panera for coffee, and for running errands. This would...

    Ok - don't want to bad mouth any trike builders, but I'd spend my hard earned $$$ on a MAJOR manufacturer. Suns are inexpensive, durn near bulletproof, but heavy (btdt, sold it, too) good platform...

    Happy 2009 to all!

    Start off the year with a nice ride! Had to get some coffeeand a scone from Panera in me after last night's calorie/champagne fest! Two glasses (flutes?) are enough for a geezer like me. Actually,...

    Plain and simple answer - Monkeys are tropical animals, they don't like the cold. Well, that fulfills one of my 2008 resolutions - end the year making a lame joke in the form of a helpful post. I...

    Sticky: E-trike/velocar

    See what kind of trouble one can get into when retired? It's 'Almost Finished'! What am I saying, these things are never really finished! The journey is always fun, though! The past seven days in...

    They've learned to talk (see 'Babe'), so, can flying, or piloting skills be far behind?

    I bought a BL36 400w pedal first kit from We'reElectrified, was a good unit, served it's purpose well until the 'more power' bug bit me, then went to a C'lyte X5 1400w vs. 400 - both are good units!

    There's a reason why Segway's haven't caught on with the general population as an electric vehicle. It is probably safe to say that cost is the primary reason. $4500.00 buys you the most basic...

    Saw ND's comment on my video

    Yeah, know about Ping - biggest problem is that his batteries are only rated 1.5C, and I'd like 3C to feel safe, as I know my C'lyte X5 draws because of the weight of my rig with the velobody on it...

    E-trike video

  23. Poll: A123's are a different dog than Chinese packs like . . .

    A123's are better packs than Ping and YESA. Lots of folks swear by the Ping packs, but they are not hauling the heavy loads I do. A recent trip to the lumber yard came in at a total (trike w/motor,...
