Question about batteries and voltages

I've been dabbling with the idea of an Ebike setup. I was thinking of going more of a tadpole trike, but same concept. What I'm wondering is can you run an alternator as a charging source through a...

You should probably start with expecting a lot more from yourself. At least then you have a chance of not being let down. Expecting more from others only gets you hurt. I expect everyone to be...

My commute isn't that bad, its only about 7.5 miles each way. I guess I just have to prep for it better. Usually I'm in my work cloths (heavy boots, carhartts, black t-shirt) and have a backpack...

Heat wave

With the heat wave that has gripped much of the country, how do you keep yourself motivated to keep commuting? I'm new to the experience, and I have to say, the heat sucks the life right out of me.
