Mobility Unlimited …. heros?

May 29, 2008

Last year my next door neighbor saw my first ebike, (a Veloteq) and … took my lead.  He went and got himself a bike. He, (okay, his name is Michael), stored his bike outside over Winter and of course, it died.

Cut to now.  Michael called the dealer, (Segway of Ontario), who called the distributor, (Daymak), who… did nothing. Michael then called Mobility Unlimited on Gerrard Street.  They came, (yes, came), and fixed his battery for him and did it cheep too.  

Mobility Unlimited – you guys are heros.
Yes – I watch too much Colbert 🙂 


EVT goes pftzzzzzz…

Want to know what happens if/when you leave your charger on too long?  Read this blog entry from a Vancouver Ebike dealer.  

Lesson learned?  Use a timer.

Battery got you down?

I keep hearing from people, (especially Daymak owners), about how their batteries are failing.  Perhaps its our cold Canadian Winters, or maybe folks aren’t following instructions.

My advice; use the Battery Tender.  This device can stay plugged in all the time and will keep your 12volt battery in tip-top shape.  $60’ish from most motorcycle stores.

NOTE: This is NOT NOT NOT the same as a trickle charger.  This is a very smart device.  Great for cars, motorcycles, boats… anything with a 12volt battery

Have you mod’ed your ebike?

I have, and I admit it.  By removing one tiny capacitor I’ve increased the top speed of my bike to about 42 k/mh.  

So, have you mod’ed your ebike?
