Re: 72V Motorcycle Wheels Mac 6T Motor Street Ride

I'm impressed and would like to see long term results on how the internals handle cooling. If you want to replace the rim, check out those 22" BMX rims that are becoming popular. Some of them have the same erto as 18" motorcycle tires. IMHO that would make for the perfect compromise between getting ...

Congrats!! surely you had some ebike tools laying around to do so.
I have a belt i've had since i started, and it shows the history of my 100lbs loss in the form of how it warped etc. I'll upload a pic later.

Re: High power ebike means none of the rules apply to me

Of course discouraging citizens from innovating is very much in the interest of companies trying to maintain the energy/transportation status quo. Yup. And that's exactly how alternative transportation has been repeatedly outlawed or even prevented from being. I'm personally not a big fan of caving...

Anyone try Shirataki Noodles? Suppose to be mainly water and 1g of carb, they were using 28g/1ounce for reference points.

Re: The keto thread

I've been eating parsnips roasted as French fries, but someone turned me onto Daikon radishes instead. Less carbs, way cheaper and perhaps more potato-like. I want to try them in my air fryer next. Usually I eat them poutine style with cheese and gravy. A guy in my keto group just turned me on to t...

Well, after a few bumps, we are back up, and on the latest version of phpbb.

Re: increasing pedal range by eating healthy food-p11, Testing new plan to control diabetes without drugs pg 15

I understand that insulin resistance can change a little bit on low fat because you're essentially doing the opposite thing as me - you're telling your body to get better at using carbohydrates, and it undergoes an opposite metabolic shift. Same thing as when you do keto religiously for a bit, you b...

Bullfrog, I'd love to see a video of your setup going all out ! And pics of how you sealed it, etc. DD is way better but you can't beat this low weight and high power density today in hubs. The Mac would perform better in more like a 26 inch wheel if you can handle some rear drop! The Mac is a less ...

The mac is never going to handle 50mph speed Oh come on, i hit 47mph on mine in a 26 inch wheel with the old 0.5mm lam motor back in 2012 or so. I also weighed nearly 300lbs. The only problem you'll have with hitting those speeds is the magnets flinging off the rotor.. :lol: A more realistic safe c...

I just wanted to chip in and say that I am glad to see this experiment still ongoing. I've never seen anything like it on here and dig the pioneering spirit.

Re: Home-Built Ebike - Swiss Police Suspect Drugs!

There's a dozen things this guy could have done better to mask his not so legal creation and ride it for years.
Try a little geared hubbie for starters.
Drugs or just really bad judgement? :lol:

I bet that tiny motor wheel climbed like a beast though.. what's that.. a 6 inch tire?

You've never tried keto though. Fat is not the problem. Fat plus a certain percentage of carbohydrates ( we call this the western pattern diet ) is the problem that plagues this nation and anyone who eats our diet. it's because you can never really be in the right metabolic mode to burn both at once...

The damage done from high blood sugar in untreated type 1 is what kills type 2 diabetics, not Look up Bob Krause, a NASA engineer with type 1 who lived to 90, which is a record. He had a super specially formulated diet and got the disease before insulin therapy was common. https://www.diabetes.co.uk...
