Reply Pete at Electric Bike Report says October 11, 2011 at 11:49 am Thanks for your input Rob! I will have some info on converting a normal bike to an ebike and ebike reviews Reply Lisalinn123 says October 23, 2011 at 11:48 pm Being a novice to the whole electric bike thing, I would want to know what are the main features to look for. I am also wondering what the disadvantages might be to having a folding bike (are they hard to carry, is it a drag having smaller wheels, how do they fold, etc…) When it comes to battery Voltage /amp hours, is bigger always better (as long as you’re under the legal limit for a bicycle)? I would love a comparison of electric bike spec sheets. It’s hard opening each one individually. I would especially like to know which ones are the lightest. I don’t quite understand the “TMM” torque measurement method systems vs “power-on-demand bike”. Reply Margo says October 26, 2011 at 6:55 pm I just got my ebike kit four months ago (a Clean Republic Hill Topper SLA), and couldn’t be happier. I use it everyday and it’s added so much more joy into my life. I guess what’s mostly on my mind now is how to generate awareness in my community. I’m convinced this could really catch on once people try it and use it for function, not just recreation. My other question is what are the startup costs for opening an ebike shop? I think this could very well be my new dream job! : ) Reply Erik S. Rezek says January 27, 2012 at 4:08 pm I have a tao tao tao 48 volt 500watt scooter it came with 10ah battery pack – I wired in additional 24ah battery pack for additionall range. Worked great for awhile butt then one battery in each pack went bad. Hmmm.. Can you tell me what the actual correct wiring would be to intigrate two 48 volt battery packs? Thank You Erik S. Rezek Reply Pete says April 7, 2012 at 8:45 pm I have been researching electric mountain bikes that can climb a significant slope. I have researched many different brands. I actually like this little bike shop in California but I am concernd that they can actually stand behind their bikes. The name of the bike shop is Hi-Power Cycles. I am interested in anyone that has experience with purchasing from Hi-Power or any other serious electric mountain bikes. Thanks Reply Pete says April 10, 2012 at 5:56 pm Hi Pete, Unfortunately I don’t have any experience with that shop. Maybe somebody else will be able to give you their thoughts on this.
