Hello All....just bought a '05 750X Tidalforce bike & eager to ride & buy more!

I'm thinking that having at least one model each of the bikes that Tidalforce made before being sold to Matra in France would be a nice goal.

Which model TF do you like & use?

Just an update....I've since bought a Tidalforce NOS (NewOldStock) '05 IO Cruiser & a TF NOS '05 S -750X. *****'n bikes, which are DEAD SILENT, though the IO cruiser is a non turbo & only goes 20mph, and the S-750X 21spd bike will go 25mph, & 28.5mph if you pedal hard, or 32.5mph downhill & pump'n hard....which is just the right speed that ebiking starts to get interesting!

I've also bought four (4) '00 EV Global ebikes with two @ 36V (SX/LE) & two @ 24V. All like new, as most people don't understand where to buy or how to replace the SLA batteries. The 36v bikes only go 16.5 mph & are noisy with the geared Heinzman rear hubs. Fun fully loaded (lights/horn/cruise) bikes, as I use the 36v bikes to run the dog which is just the right speed for him @ full speed. Now, I've got to figure out a solution to upgrade the SLA batteries in these bikes to reduce weight & increase the range. One solution is to use the Ultra Motor Europa PlyLion battery as the "box" is the same size.

So, are seven (7) ebikes enough? :-)

Just an updat.....the TF collection is up to 9 + a M-750 E+. The last being two (2) M-750X which belonged to William Shatner, out of L.A. California in MINT condition.

The EVG ebike collection is now around 18 units, with the 36v PE version (6 units) being my favorite, then the SX, and then the LE. The 24v version are still ok to run the dogs, though you will want to put a couple of Multistar lithium batteries (1-3s & 1-4s) in the stock battery box. And also replace the rear freewheel to a 11t/30t for higher stop end pedal riding.

You will want to upgrade the front chainring to a 46t (side case will need slight trim) and exchange the rear freewheel to a 11t/30t. The stock battery will take two (2) 6s/10ah Hobbyking multistar batteries, and you will need to up the voltage in the stock charger to around the 49v max charge rate. I too run power wires to the rear rack and install another 6s/10ah battery pack in the rear stock rack bag.

So, are around 30 ebikes enough? :-)

Now.......what is next, maybe an EV car or three?!?
