    Fortnine study: Are electric bikes more dangerous than motorcycles?

    Depends on what you’re riding when you get run over.

    Economic riding using TCD.

    Those knobby tires suck a lot of energy. You can remove the battery and take it for a ride comparison on weight difference. Those batteries are heavy!

    Economic riding using TCD.

    You can turn the motor off and see what you are pedaling at then compare to the other settings, even on level ground it will give you an idea of what is happening.

    Specialized Turbo Vado/Como User Club

    Nice looking bike. Only thing I don't like about my step thru is when you are standing up and usually with a cross bar you can hold the bike between the legs, without the cross bar it wants to fall over. But that only happens a few times:). It's a great bike!

    Turbo Vado 4 Chain Wear

    Also breaking in a chain is in my thoughts when a new one is installed. Letting the parts wear in and become familiar with plenty of lubricant is on my mind. Especially with the ebike.

    Turbo Vado 4 Chain Wear

    When I installed the KMC on the Sequoia replacing the Shimano after 6 yrs there was a noticeable difference. I don't think the tighter tolerances causes any problem with the chain line. Might be a difference of the lubricant being able to get into the workings. My process is to clean a new...

    Who is transporting their ebikes standing up inside a truck bed under topper?

    Now, see, I had thought of that also, and putting a soft top on it so I could climb in and roll it up and be able to walk to the front. Or just using a soft topper, but of course that is minimal top security. A high top van would solve a lot of problems:).

    Who is transporting their ebikes standing up inside a truck bed under topper?

    I've been thinking about this also. Only part I don't like is having to crawl inside. A bed slide out is a consideration.

    Turbo Vado 4 Chain Wear

    I noticed difference between two chains, kmc and shimano, the kmc is looser in contruction or tolerances, and could twist and put more curve into it. The shimano was a tighter construction. Look for abnormal wear on the chain ring teeth, where the anodization has wore.

    Bidet

    What’s the big difference between the complete bowl/seat combo and just converting current setup with bidet seat? Seats seem reasonable, complete setup can get into some serious change. Yet don’t want to buy a seat and end up with s piece of junk.

    Bidet

    Everybody in your area use the bidet?

    Bidet

    No drip dry? I think some of them have dryers:). Nothing like a cold splash than warm hug.

    Bidet

    Complete units are not cheap. Probably have to institute a bidet tax to fund one. Heard Biden is going to put a bidet in every household to stop spread of coronavirus.

    Bidet

    Thought what could be more appropriate than discussion about bidets with our international friends, from the toilet paper community. i am researching and considering the installation of one. Ran across this quote from Rolling Stones magazine. "It’s shown me the difference between rubbing...
