ElectricBike-Blog.com is located in Ithaca, NY. I collaborate very closely with Larry from Boxy Bikes and Eric from electricbike.com . I don’t accept any money for advertising and generally pay retail/street prices for products I review. There are no goods or services offered by me through this website. There is no plans to sell this site for money or to provide advertising in the future. ElectricBike-Blog.com exists for one purpose and one purpose only.
To promote the usage of electric bikes everywhere through education and high quality information.
Email is always the best way to reach us.
My companion blog is about Travel and Adventure but mostly about Love and can be found at www.awaken-spirit.org. I’ve also started a new blog about Hoverboards, Self balancing Unicycles and Electric skateboards called Electric-Boarding.com.
I receive about 20-30 emails a day that I answer from builders like you that are trying to create their own electric bike. Please make an effort to educate yourself using this website, endless-sphere.com and electricbike.com before you send me an email. My responses will be short and to the point and I will expend NO EFFORT to try to sell you on a particular drive system or battery. When I work I charge $80-90/hr and my time is incredibly valuable. I’ve already spent about $100,000 of my own time building this site that you can access for FREE. Educate yourself before asking questions and do not question my answers. I’ve found that people frequently ignore free advice but listen very carefully to what I say when I’m billing them $90/hr. Pretend I am billing you $90/hr to answer your emails and act accordingly.
If you want to support ElectricBike-Blog.com but are too cheap to donate money (like I would be) then like us on facebook, invite your friends to like us on facebook or subscribe to our Youtube channel. We love people that link to us and help promote the site.
When you complete a build send me a quick email and a picture so I can get stoked off your builds. Here is a sample email from Peter in NM
For 3 days now I’ve been riding my 750W BBS02 fatbike, and I cannot stop giggling and laughing, out loud!I believe I have read most all of your posts, and with the provided insight and experience, I took your advice. And I quote:“Build your own electric fatbike. Beg, borrow and steal the parts. I promise to show you how to build a bike that doesn’t totally suck if you follow my instructions. You must believe in yourself, that you can do it.”You were right! I could do it, and have.
These kinds of emails are what keep me writing.
