    Rad mission, anyone?

    I just took a peek at Court´s review. While Iḿ riding something else, I like where itś going with the engineering. Simplicity in the right places. Okay, it´s really basic, but for a first bike, something you can aftermarket personalize, this is a very functional & durable looking bike fur cheap...

    Stayin' Alive

    I had a near death experience yesterday. This isn't actually that unusual for me...were I a cat, I'd a bin dead long ago. I think the real thrill of cycling being like a fawn pursued by a pack of wolves. Ya gotta be an adrenalin junkie to ride in any kind of traffic. Gawd I love cycling. Nothin'...

    Can someone tell me: Is it possible to use a bottle type generator to feed charge the battery via a USB port? Say like on a long alpine dissent?

    I realize this would be totally counter-productive while using the motor, but what about coasting or pedaling without power? Is there a way to charge your bike by pedaling it?🤔 Can't believe I spelled descent like that, but I can't fix it.

    Multiple Batteries?

    I've got 2 batteries, an 8ah & a 21ah. I can probably get 50+mi. from the 21ah, but who rides that far in one go? It takes the 21ah about 5 hrs. to charge from a 20mi. ride. My grocery run is just 2 mi. While the bike gobbles volts on the 8ah, it completely recharges in a 1/2 hr after a grub...

    How much has your ebike replaced your car?

    I did drive one day in July, 60 mi. round trip supply run. Guess that's not 100% independence, but not bad.
