    Are You Ready to E-enduro?

    You boys should've been there! Check out the foto links down the page a bit. Edward Lyen finished 5th against the awesome pedallers 3hr48min. Long story, I just had a good time and will have to avenge myself in 2014 5hrs46min. http://megamonster.lowkeyhillclimbs.com/2013/results.html My...

    Timed Century Run; build and training (sort of)

    Everywhere I ride distance, folks are good about allowing me to sip electricity. I tell 'em it's a really low amount, around 2cents an hour of charge. Between a 40mile batt pack and electrical sipping at fancy cheeseburger houses, I can go anywhere I want. But, the Low Key Run is out in...

    Timed Century Run; build and training (sort of)

    My sweaty workout rides Took comm college classes and rode alot last year. Patted my belly after this Christmas and thought, "Gotta get some miles in before Feb Low Key." After a few rides to build up mileage and adjust new gearing, finally rode 38miles, the last 3 with dead batt. Enjoyed my...

    Are You Ready to E-enduro?

    Funny and positive, I love this forum! Follow building and training here. Rode 36miles yesterday 1/22. Bet you've got your thumpers 'dialed in' Brian, thanks for the words. http://motorbicycling.com/showthread.php?p=455245#post455245 Scotto, you should unbolt your big motor and try some...

    Timed Century Run; build and training (sort of)

    Gearing Up http://www.sheldonbrown.com/gears/ Bolted longer 175mm cranks with bigger 48T vs 42T chainring. Thinking here is to match my pedalling poweress he. .he.. to motor strength. The Q100 cute is defintely a mini. If my 190lb mass heads up a half-mile 8% slope without pedalling, it's...

    Timed Century Run; build and training (sort of)

    Team Grocery Hauler here; a force of one. This is a fun timed century run, Low Key Enduro held in Paicines, CA just south of San Jose every Feb. Last 2012, a rain snuck into the event though the nite before there was only a 10% forcast! Lots of impressively fast bicyclists and just a few...

    Are You Ready to E-enduro?

    Scotto, you know I'll be pedalling and grinning! Rode last year and anticipate this one. Love getting called 'cheater' when I pass a few guys climbing the little mtns. These rabid bike clubers are serious about their anemically skinny 2 wheelers. I'll be posting a basic little mini-motor set...

    Are You Ready to E-enduro?

    Here's a Feb 9th Century Run that invites electrics. You can carry a pretty big wad of batts and pedal along. Doubtful you can catch the Big legged semi-pros, but it's fun trying. Great platform for putting together an efficiency cruiser. Basically a time trial just south of San Jose. Only...

    Razor MX1000 electric "BMX" :P

    Way to be! I've always thought the pocketbikes had systems pretty refined. Probably a great approach to mod a pocketbike rather than build the e-bike/e-motorcycle from scratch. Been trying to bend my lexan with a hotgun, you bet I'm gonna try the mini-torch soon. Haven't been on the forum...

    2 Stroke E-chaser

    Not fast enough. 41mph topend is good, but can't stand seeing others pull 10-20feet on me coming out of turns. With 45amps, there's a motor stutter accelerating out of corners, (likely the sensorless controller struggles to provide [email protected]), and motor temp(coil) is cool enough to bump...

    what is the future of racing?

    You may be referring to me, #14e-bike. I lined up 2nd row the 1st heat and noted that the start did make a difference as to how well 1 can finish, less time dealing with getting around a couple of racers. I was up front earlier due to no warm up lap but waved the guy behind me up into my spot...

    I don't how 40+ motorbicycles can get together and have any greater crowd thrilling competition. (What if AGK, Piston Bikes, & BigBoys had of made it?) Folks, the motored bike scene is evolving to where no man has gone before. Holy WeedWackers, after cherry pickin' the small engines class...

    About Ryan's dyno, very interesting; gotta look at ya'lls power curves/peaks and compare to my little electric hubbie. Will this give new life/clarity to 11hp class?

    I'm jealous. ArrowCycles have refined and refined and are 'dialed in.' My modest electric has several significant innovations not yet implemented. I find the journey as rewarding as the racing. I'd really like to hear about your biggest setback and your race bike's most innovative mod.

    Magic Pie 3 and Smart Pie by Golden Motors Comparison

    25lbs vs 10lbs makes for a felt difference regardless of performance category. Sounds as though the 'Smart' Pie is a geared setup; ie, small motor in hub spinning 3-5000rpms geared down by planetary gears also inside hub.
