Electric Bike Mod

Want to stick a motor onto your bicycle? Well check out this project.

“The current version is what I am calling v1.5, which is the same bike as v1.4 but with some basic changes: a new timing belt drive system with a chain final drive. Basically, the motor drives a belt that spins a secondary shaft or ‘jackshaft’ mounted close on the motor and spinning on ball bearings. This shaft then drives a chain going down to the rear bike wheel. Same motor, and all other components.”

    This is an excellent blog for electric bicycles. There are not too many around like this. Thanks for making this such an interesting subject. Oh, by the way, Wired Magazine has a great article on hybrid cars this month. (Jan 2008 issue).

    God Bless,

    Two days ago, I wrote an article about a report I had heard on the local radio, concerning the banning of electric bicycles and electric scooters. I was stunned to hear that our government was actually considering this sort of a ban because it reeked of tyranny. Well, I had more email shot to me about this subject than you could shake a stick at.

    To read my initial report on this Click Here: Electric Bicycles and Electric Scooters

    Several people had told me that they had heard similar reports about this and that the ban was actually going to be on the batteries themselves and not the ebikes. The idea was that the batteries were considered explosive and dangerous and if they were in the wrong hands, that they could be used for some nasty things.

    I called the local news channel and scanned their Website and could find nothing on the report. The person at the news desk told me that sometimes on rare occasions they are told to run certain news items just to see what type of reaction it would get.(Of course this person demanded that I not say his name or the name of the radio station or he would just claim that I was an out right liar.) But, he at least told me that I had heard correctly, that he could not confirm the source of the report….At this time.

    However, I received some very distressing email from several people. One of the emails I received was from a man that I will call “Mr.X” for now. He basically told me that I should shut up about the ban report and that he could make life miserable for me if I kept talking. I have been in the Internet business for years now and have never had a threat like this one, so, naturally I was shocked. I have since submitted the email to the proper authorities and will pursue this threat very seriously. The reason that I am taking this threat seriously is because he knew intimate details about my businesses and he said he worked with IRS on occasion.

    I believe passionately in alternative fuel vehicles like electric bikes and electric scooters and I will do anything I can to promote their cause.

    I am pursuing this issue with an investigation and will let you know more about this as time goes on.
