    Suspension seatpost ?

    OUCH the visuals, LOL. But this has given me an idea for a sturdy spring post from this post. I'll post it when I get to putting it together.

    Painted my Chrome bars

    Thanks for the tips. I have an old handlebar set that has a shape I want on my bike but the chrome is long gone. I will be painting them after I clean them up well. I'll give VHT a try.

    I've been trying to pull up NC ebike laws for a couple of days now but the state site is not cooperating. I found an attorney's link that said that ebikes were treated the same as a regular bikes as long as it was 500 watts or less and stayed under 25MPH I wonder, since you live there (I am...

    @Duchess That is an awesome looking site. I don't know much about electrics yet since I'm on my first one (Golden Motors 48v rear hub) and the batt pack was murder but I didn't know if they would be proprietary or not. Turns out they're not. Now I have a new field of study to learn. ;)
