Re: Dusting off an old project bike

N360 should hold up to 100W easy enough. Regular riders can spit out more then 100W, professional riders 500W+ for steady state for an hour. 1kw for sprints.

Re: Can Tesla converted to diesel?

I agree the H2's and H3's are a joke. I prefer the military style H1's. As far as the Mercedes-Benz Unimogs go, they are off road beasts, I'd prefer the Unimog over the H1. The 1st pic are 416 Unimog portal axles. How they would stand up to 44" or larger tires I do not know compared to the &quo...

Re: new eZip motor

Curtis just needs one really good ebike to get him to Walmart, the grocery store and the liquor store. I'd say the town he lives in is quite flat, few hills if any, a distance of 25 miles with a portable charger. Throw on a front basket capable of holding say a 24 can pack. Laptop chargers are good,...

Yes, because you have an experienced eye but to the casual person out n aboot they'd have no clue unless the ebikers riding gives them away. Whats the need for stealth in the USA, many reasons.

would be too much power. I am not even sure the amps but it will do 36V. There is no such thing as to much power. Only to much amp draw from battery.

They can't even crack down on exhaust noises here, motorbikes are the worst offenders, then the sports cars. Hardly do you ever see 30 year old cars with rusted out white/blue smoke exhaust flumes.

Check out youtube and buy yourself spoke wrench, you dont even need a true'ing stand. $200 is quite expensive, It's probably $150 at a bike store, but again you dont need it. You can actually make your own! https://www.amazon.com/Park-Tool-Mechanic-Wheel-Truing/dp/B000LNW2OS/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&...

Re: Build pack onto and around frame tube, rather than inside?

There was a post with a recubent that had square tubing where they were trying to cram batteries inside the frame.
There are hub motors with controller and battery inside the hub motor.
People have cut into existing frames to weld in their battery box design.
