    EVELO Galaxy TT with NuVinci Harmony Review

    The maximum speed can be set anywhere from 7.5 mph to 24.8 mph, more than fast enough for me. You can trick the maximum speed by changing the wheel diameter to a smaller number. As an example if you set the wheel size from 27 to 16.7 on the display unit and set the units of measurement from...

    EVELO Galaxy TT with NuVinci Harmony Review

    I still love her! The torque sensor and the the NuVinci Harmony Automatic Transmission makes riding the Galaxy so natural and the battery life is amazing. I don't think I would have been happy with any thing else.

    Speed Hacks (Modifying a Speed Governor)

    I had an old box-store donor bike laying around that I converted with a BBS02 kit for my daughter. I programmed it initially with "Karl’s special sauce" settings but then modified the settings to tame the beast and make it a lot more kid friendly. She never noticed the difference but I didn't...

    Making a traditional bicycle rickshaw into an electric rickshaw

    Can you add a Bafang mid-drive kit and then program it down to 250 watts? That's what in did for Maryland, which has a 500 watt limit.

    Luna is having an Anniversary Sale! $750 for the BBS02 Mid Drive Kit with Panasonic Lithium Battery. Have you local bike company remove the guts from the bottom bracket (front bracket?) and install. You'll need some longer cables but I'm sure Luna can hook you up.

    Best Electric Bikes Under $1000?

    I think the best eBike Under $1000 is one that you build. A 750 watt mid drive kit with a Panasonic lithium battery for $750 can't be beat, just find a nice $250 donor Mountain Bike. If you want a better bike in a couple of years, move the kit over. If you decide later that you want even more...

    The Luna Wrench and/or Tool kit are out of stock so it looks like I'll need to get 1) Shimano Bottom Bracket Removal Tool, 2) Crank Puller for 22mm x 1 threads and square, tapered bottom bracket spindles, and 3) Double sided bottom bracket lockring hook spanner Did I miss anything?

    My GoPro 4 GPS dashboard experiments using a smartphone as a tracker

    I picked up the HITCASE SNAP Case with mount and the wide angle lens for my iPhone 6s Plus. It was much steadier than my UP UPKJ iPhone Bicycle Mount, but still not very usable.

    Why not more belt drives?

    You can’t use a detailer with a belt drive so you either go with a hub gear or single speed. My Evelo Galaxy TT has the Gates carbon belt drive and combined with the NuVinci Harmony automatic transmission they provide a smooth and quiet riding experience. It probably helps that the Bafang motor...

    My GoPro 4 GPS dashboard experiments using a smartphone as a tracker

    I think my best bet is to find a windows program that will convert the mono sound track into a dual mono (stereo) track so I can do it all on the same computer.

    EVELO Galaxy TT with NuVinci Harmony Review

    This weekend I took her out to the steep hill that got me serious about getting an ebike. According to my GPS the hill had a max grade of 13%. Riding the Galaxy up the hill was no problem and I easily maintained 10 mph. Kind of made me wonder what all the fuss was about.

    My GoPro 4 GPS dashboard experiments using a smartphone as a tracker

    Sounds like a great idea would certainly make it easier to sync. I'm not sure what the purpose of the "green gauge" is

    My GoPro 4 GPS dashboard experiments using a smartphone as a tracker

    Yep, my Dbpower 5000, GoPro wannabe puts out a mono sound track. I put the file in Final Cut Pro and turned it into a dual mono file so DashWare thinks it's a stereo file and it works fine. Thanks for the help.

    My GoPro 4 GPS dashboard experiments using a smartphone as a tracker

    I did a test video with Vidometer by turning my iPhone around in my holder and pointing it forward, too shaky for me. My GoPro clone is much less shaky. Maybe their case with the wide angle lens would be better but no grade info so I think I'll upgrade to Windows 10 first. How did you get the...

    My GoPro 4 GPS dashboard experiments using a smartphone as a tracker

    I think it's a Windows 8 problem (It thinks I have a "higher" version) Might be time to upgrade to Window 10 cause I don't think my iPhone handlebar mount will allow me to use it's camera. I'll run some test this weekend.
