    Headlight - Anyone try this?

    I'm also using CREE LED lights. It does heats up, and battery can last for more than hour. It's very bright. I think it's brighter than most car headlamps.

    Police call for ban on sale of motorised kits for bikes

    The Police officer is totally missing the point here. What caused the accident? was it the motorized bicycle or the rider? would the rider be still alive whether he was riding a plain bicycle or a motorized bicycle? I agree that should be restrictions like wearing a helmet and having lights and...

    Still want to argue about rubber mounting?

    The material i use on my mount is a rigid flexible material, that's oil, fuel, and heat resistant, and can be easily found for free. Guess what it is? it's an old and used timing belt. I find the wide ones to be more effective, the ones used on V6 and V8 engines. You can get these used timing...

    need opinion on swapping 24 inch wheels on 26 inch frame.

    Thanks guys and gals for all the input. Really appreciate it. My next build would definitely be 24 inch wheels on a 26 inch frame. I think i will just leave my 26 inch bike as is and find a way on how to put some fenders or mud guards of some sort... :)

    need opinion on swapping 24 inch wheels on 26 inch frame.

    I've been thinking of swapping for 24 inch wheels on my 26 inch frame. Would the bike look ridiculous? If I use a 2.4 inch tires on a 24 inch wheel then it would only be a 0.6 inch difference on a 26 inch wheel with a 1 inch tire. Not much difference. This came up because I've installed a 2.5...

    1000 mile tires?

    I think Schwalbe tires are your best bet. I'm using the Marathon Plus with smart guard on 26 in wheels. I think you can get 29ers. Probably the Double Defence Tires. Although, the sidewalls are pretty thin for the Marathon. I've been using these for 3 years and hardly wear down, until it blew on...

    Inner ring as full float wrist pin bearing?

    There has been quite a debate between needle bearings and bushings. http://juicemotoparts.com/bearvsbushing http://corvaircenter.com/phorum/read.php?1,27783 It seems that this set up is usually used for 4 stroke engines. I've tested hooking up the wrist pin to a power drill and spin...

    Inner ring as full float wrist pin bearing?

    Has anybody here ever tried to use the inner ring of needle bearings to work as a full float wrist pin bearing? it fits seamlessly with the pin and the connecting rod. The size would be 10 x 14 x (14 or 16 with piston modification to fit). Some apprehensions are that it might shatter and might...

    Riding my motorized bicycle, keeping up with traffic on the Highway

    There are no bike lanes and this is the shortest route to my destination so I have no choice but to take this highway. The highway I have to take is about 10 kilometers. And I don't have to pay tolls, because it's on 2 wheels. BTW, there are also some pedal powered bicycles that uses this...

    EDF Jet Powered Bike

    A different kind of E-bike... Has anyone seen one of these? or thinking of building one of these? It looks like a 7 blade 120mm EDF unit - 6 units. Probably with a thrust power of around 10kg per EDF. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDVcecoC_f0 A low power version of this. I think this...

    Wow.....thought I was on the wrong site...

    I'm planning my 3rd build to be electric. An electric build is very different. There are more challenges I think, which can make it really exciting. Has anyone seen the 'Killacycle'? It will change your views about electric...

    e bike build

    well, the Stealth can perform better than the 2-strokes... but it ain't cheap... You gotta have the $$$$$ to build a ripper or reaper. I'm guessing if you want an electric bike to perform like the 2-strokes, you might have to work with 72 volts and above. Then there's a question if your...
