The e-bike lives!

Last Sunday morning I wheeled it out and took a turn up the road and back. Not far. It was pretty cold to be riding around on a bike with a ventilated helmet — about 5C. As I knew, it’s a lead sled. 50 kg of batteries tends to affect the local gravitational field. I still need to put a “Jesus Switch” on it, as well as a DC-DC converter to run some lights. It feels very nice. Smooth acceleration from stop to 40 km/hr, which was as fast as I felt comfortable with on a brand-new construction. Pix when I get them…
