Re: 25000 mile club

I can imagine riding in UK.
Visited UK 2 years ago and first thing I noticed were the narrow roads with tiny shoulders or no shoulder at all.
such a contrast to average NAmerican road.

Re: These (electric) bikes are for billionaires.

I agree Bill,
for not electrical/electronic person is not so easy task.
Chances of causing shorts and destroying electronics are high.
removing/disconnecting boards from original NMH battery is especially tricky.

Re: One Wheel not a bike but beauty in motion

to think about it how unstable it is when you ride it.
what about when you have to stop suddenly for any reason?
weight of the rider on this light thing with no support of second wheel make it unstable and dangerous.

Re: The trend of cities banning cars

I am not gonna argue with you why small houses are not build in NAmerica.
fact is that property taxes are based on sqfoots, right? heating bills,etc.
belive me
many people would live in small houses but developers dont build them, why?
because they make less money on them.

Re: Rebuilding battery pack

I had similar problems dismantling Chevy Volt battery modules.
first rule is to wrap with el. tape other nearby tabs when you work on any given tab.
I cut upper section of 2-cell tab simply with sheet metal cutter and forced the tabs apart.
