There is also a createspace page for the book.
My copies on the way, looking forward to reading it.
This is an intriguing theory:
A very interesting theory:
some skeptical views:
And I’m making a point of linking to the .COM.AU version of the domain. AUDAs snivelling pathetic bahaviour has been duly noted.
Sometimes you have to state the bleeding obvious.
When did all these jackbooted extremists creep into the Laboral party?
Well had an attempt at doing home handyman stuff today and installed a 250L watertank (purchased from Bluetank6 on ebay and hooked it up to the downpipe using some cheap garden hose and a raintap water diverter from Bunnings. Still need to get a bracket mounted above the diverter to make it more stable, but I’m hoping using normal garden hose should make it easy to add more ebay water tanks as needed.
Well it was a sunny day, with quite full on wind but I managed to do a range test at last.
Rode along portions of the Eastlink bike trail:
Endless Sphere poster mickk recently also got a greenewheels bike – this thread on the Endless Sphere forums documents his experiences starting out with the bike, and his ideas of some upgrades to get more performance from it.
I haven’t actually used any of these vendors myself, it’s just information I have been gathering for future reference, but it’s good to see there is a range of approaches – from full service to complete DIY, and pricepoints catered for in Australia for Electric Bicycle stuff.
Australian All Electric Vehicles:
These guys have an ebay store selling assorted bits, as well as a web site.
Of interest to me as the 48v controller they sell looks like just the ticket if I ever decide to increase the power on my bike by adding an additional battery to it. Melbourne locations.
Brett / Solar BBQ:
I know two guys very happy with this guys products, DIY hub motor ebike central: http://www.users.bigpond.com/solarbbq/bikesale/bsale.htm. Newcastle (NSW) Location.
Expensive but amazing looking bikes and kits.. the videos on the site look like a lot of fun of pushing the power limits:
I just founds this site while googling the subject, and these bikes look cool going just from the web page, but you pay extra for Li-ION batteries. http://www.zbike.com.au/ – Sydney.
I know 2 owners of this kit, different approach to the hub motor style that I went for: http://www.elationebikes.com.au/
Also sell kits driving the chain through the gears, in a similar vein to E-lation kits, but different products – some very high wattage kits there. Sold via an ebay store that also sells assorted parts, and their own web site.
Electric Vehicles Pty Ltd
Melbourne business with a shopfront with some very nice looking bikes, who appear to offer the full level of service and support for those who don’t care to DIY. Located in Melbourne, with a web site..
Interesting to see the pricing for the Wisper 905e as they are sold in Australia. These bikes are similar, although not the same as the greenewheels electric bike (e.g. 7 speed gears instead of 6 speed). They appear to use the same frame and motor, but a quite different control scheme, possibly as they were designed to be sold in the EU where a quite different set of laws apply to power assisted bicycles.
They even have a youtube video
Well I’ve kind of got fed up with the fiddling using pybloxsom as done in the old ZOG BLOG, but I can’t be bothered trying to migrate all the stuff over so I’ve just started up a new version 2 blog here, using wordpress as the back end, which I’ve found much easier to work with.
