    that is great how you have the two point of views.

    Something like the 27:54 spot where you see the 1st rider coming up from behind when the 2nd rider drops down for the exchange, the hand off...

    Yeah, that was a bit of a squeeze. It was an attack taking advantage of a rider getting tired before he was relieved. Things happen so fast in a madison, you really have to be on your toes and...

    back seat video of Madison racing

    Here is an interesting video of our local Madison racing. I'm always looking forward, so I never see the rearward view like this. These races typically are about 10 miles / 16km in length (80 laps...

    News articles:

    Do what did: get a 36v lithium battery. That will increase your speed by 50%. Might burn out if you do too many hills or spend a lot of time at full throttle and low speed. But...

    OK, I can see two reasons:
    1) the tire you want/need doesn't come in sizes as large as 28mm
    2) 28mm won't fit on your bike.

    I'm just glad that manufacturers have started creating fast agile...

    First question you need to ask is what is your speed. Speed costs lots of money and weight (mostly batteries). That is going to determine your motor. 2nd. Question you answered – distance. That...

    I think tire size is more important than many of the other factors. I would put as big as you can, up to 32mm, for a fast rolling durable tire.

    If you like to pedal, a smaller (250-350w) motor is not going to overpower you. A 500+ watt motor is really going to over power you and you won't be adding much by pedaling as the motor is so much...

    That is a good point. Relatively small increases in speed (~5mph) require near a doubling in power. Being happy at 20mph is much easier than doing 25mph.
