    I looked at that setup a couple years back and seriously considered it.

    Dolphin is the model name of the battery. I believe Panosonic battery cells inside.

    Ah i see. Ibwas visualizing a dolphin size/shape battery , so it wouldnt fit. Panosonic aims to be a player on the market. Their motors are slowly getting some market share. I think i heard they have good tourque, quiet and smooth power delivery

    I blew off taking a trip with the bike today because it was 12* this morning and I didn't want to put the battery through that. How bad would a 100 mile trip be for it in really cold temps?

    Iíd say one of the notable assets of an Ebike is how nice it is to dress warm, start the ride in comfort and manage sweat.

    Buy or make a battery cozy. Batteries are exothermic when in use so running them at low temps is not as bad as you might think. Sure, at -40 you'll fuck them up a bit but at 0 it's not a problem.

    E-bikes and electric scooters are becoming increasingly popular in the United States, but the powered bikes carry a higher risk of severe injuries than traditional bicycles and a different pattern of injury risks compared with scooters, a recent study finds.
    The authors analyzed emergency department data collected from 2000 to 2017 by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commissionís National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), on injuries involving all three types of vehicles.
    While people riding e-bikes were more likely to suffer internal injuries and be hospitalized compared to the other riders, powered scooter users had higher rates of concussion. E-bike injuries were also more than three times as likely to involve a collision with a pedestrian than either scooter or traditional bike injuries, the researchers report in the journal Injury Prevention.

    Finally had time to install the Bafang and get a test ride in. Took some fiddling and I had to make some spacers but it fits. Initial impression is wow it's got torque, the motor stays on for a second after I stopped pedalling.

    The 30t chainring I ordered must be a poor cut, chain only meshes on half of it. Stock chainring is an ugly steel 46 t it'll do for now.

    Finished off my 2019 by snapping my chain and having to walk home on a sub zero night. Careful with the torque on the gears! Threw a Bafang on a Mukluk a few months ago. Super fun, but a little finicky, think I need to mess with my chainline.

    KMC Chains.
    Change often, like the oil in your car.
    Stick with the E-Shifters that only let you make one click at a time.

    2x that. Kmc's are working well and cheap. I just add a chain and/or brake pads on to my chain reaction orders for free shipping. Always have a couple spares and brake pads everywhere(truck, packs, tool box)

    Went for a nice 8 mile ride yesterday, first in a few weeks due to conditions, and didn't need to come out of eco for the whole ride. I was pretty happy with that. Hero dirt abounds right now which is nice. I even remembered NOT to plug in the charger when I got home, good battery management habits are happenin'

    I think I finally nailed the setup on my fork because I was pointing it and sending it through sections that have been unnecessarily difficult for a while, the right stiff wheels and tire combo helped too. If anyone is thinking they need a different/better fork the Wren is the ticket. I'm running 150mm travel on a bike that was stock with 120 and it's damn near perfect. I run about 30% sag so the A2C isn't much more than it's "supposed" to be but the front end is way more supple and active than it was with the Sektor (?) that came on the bike. https://wrensports.com/product/inver...spension-fork/ I have one on my fatty and my steel hardtail too If you want a discount code for stuff from these guys let me know.

    If you're gonna need to do some drivetrain parts replacing before next season really kicks in take a good look at Box Components. The new Prime 9 wide range stuff is pretty hot and the e-bike line will start shipping sometime next month. It's 9 speed so thicker, stronger chain, cogs, etc. and it's an 11-50 cassette so you're not losing any of the range you just have wider gaps. You'll be able to get a complete group (shifter, cass, der and chain) for well under $300 for the 2 level and about $600 for the top level. Personally I'm not sold on the top one yet but I'm waiting for samples to arrive here in the US, as soon as I get them on the bike I'll do a review. The lightweight, non e-bike, stuff is also on the way and IMO 9 speed just makes sense on a bunch of levels. http://prime9.com/

    The cassettes are made there but not the same at all. There's different ramp and tooth profiles and different carriers.

    Electric Bike Thread

    I think rideitís post was funny.
    I donít bike for fitness, I bike for fun. For me, getting out with the Mrs and charging downhill is fun. Bike for your own reason, not someone elseís. Good for Missy and Hans for getting out and having fun.
    If I want exercise, Iíll go jog, or road bike or find a gym. Fuck that though.

    I can 1000% guarantee you, Missy is not out there to exercise. But sheís fun as fuck.
