    New Neo Jumper owner from Kentucky - intro and questions

    Still going strong here in Kentucky. The bike has over 1200 miles on it and has been free from problems. I've changed the handlebar setup entirely since my last post. Now, I'm running a 120mm parallel stem with a Soma Sparrow handlebar to get myself a bit lower on the bike. I've moved the...

    I've finished wrapping the bike and both batteries. I changed out the saddle and rear light attachment while I was at it. I enjoy the clean lines of the finished product:

    I have decided to get rid of the red and black stripes entirely. I bought a roll of vinyl from the sign shop and started wrapping the rear section of the frame. Judicious use of the hair dryer and x-acto knife have paid off so far, but this will be a slow process.

    Nitro 48v battery on Neo 36v bikes.

    My experiences are consistent with 1-3. Regarding number 4, my Neo Jumper seems to be fine at 30-31 mph whether or not the suspension is locked out. I will be more mindful of the inaccuracy of the battery meter the next time I ride, when it got to 1 bar today, I was pedaling without assistance...

    I'm glad you like them! Do you mind posting some pictures and details about your light setup? I think we both have a PDW Danger Zone taillight, but your front setup is definitely a lot different. I've got an FSA Control Center in the mail for mounting lights up front. I've done away with the...

    I'm completely satisfied with the Holy Rollers. Mine are the 2.4" variety, although the actual measured width is between 2.25" and 2.3". Since you are commuting with a bus, you might also consider going with a narrower handlebar. I did away with the standard riser bar and swapped over to a flat...

    Thank you! The tires are a better compromise for the places I usually ride. I have no idea what brand vinyl the shop used. They had to order the red to get the colors to match. I think they stock 3M and Oracal products. I had ordered a sample book of vinyl from Oracal, but it never arrived for...

    Last one! Here's where it lives in my office when I use it to commute. So far, no one has recognized it to be an electric bike.

    A good deal...I suggest you contact Crazy Lenny.

    $26.50 to a local sign shop for vinyl camouflage. The battery with the logo is the original 36v Neo Jumper battery, the battery without the logo is a 48v Nitro City battery in disguise.

    Spare Battery Carrier

    I'm looking for a better solution to carry a spare battery on the Neo Jumper. I used a backpack for 25-30 miles last weekend over gravel and had sore shoulders the next day. I was wondering if a large handlebar bag might suffice, or perhaps a triangle frame bag flipped upside down so that it...

    "No Electric Bikes Allowed"

    So far, I haven't had a single person recognize my Jumper as an electric bike unless I told them myself.

    The Ascent aero bars are back in place on a narrower zero rise 5 degree sweep flat handlebar. Dimension stubs bar ends give me another hand position and make the horns look like antlers. Spurcycle GripRings replace the old parts and allow me to make each grip equal in length even with the...

    Least expensive source for replacement batteries?

    Does anyone have a preferred source for replacement batteries? I am located in the US and am aware of the following dealers: http://www.motostrano.com/BH-Easy-Motion-Replacement-Battery-p/bhbat2.htm http://shop.scooteretti.com/products/easy-motion-battery...

    I pulled the aero bars temporarily because I had to flip the bike to replace the tires and I'm about to redo the cockpit (waiting on the new grips to arrive). Maxxis Holy Roller 26 x 2.4 replace the Schwalbe Rapid Rob 26 x 2.25 tires. The Maxxis tires seem to shed speed less quickly at the...

    I usually wear a small GoLite backpack when I ride for more than a few blocks. I keep my phone, keys, and wallet in there so I won't lose them while pedaling. If I'm going to be gone for a while, I'll throw a bottle of water or two in the side pockets. It would be no trouble for me to wrap a...

    Today I rode the 45 mile loop from the Barkhausen Wetlands Center to Tunnel Hill, IL. I have the 36v 9ah battery and no spare. I started in "no assist" mode and used the throttle strategically while I continued pedaling on the longer hills and as a fan. I made it to the tunnel with 3 bars left...
