Nick Biker replied to Cycle Atlas's discussion Help Create The World's Best Bike GPS APP!
"Hi David, 'Spending' only 10 minutes without actually downloading and using the app and website on a practical basis won't give you a good idea at all. I challenge you, download the app and use it for a month and get back to me on…"

Nick Biker replied to Cycle Atlas's discussion Help Create The World's Best Bike GPS APP!
"No need for this mate. The best appication already exists: http://www.rungps.net/ I've been using this app for 4 years now, it works on any device from Windows Mobile, Android, Iphone, etc. All the bike tracks in Australia and rest of the…"

Nick Biker replied to David Gregory's discussion NiteRider MAKO 5.0 light
"Hi David, I think one needs something more substantial than this, e.g. I have a custom built 600 Lumens light mounted on my helmet. I run a thin lightweight cable from the rear of the helmet to a 12V battery pack on the bike itself. Then I have a…"

Nick Biker commented on Dolomiti Ebikes's blog post The Changing Gears of Electric Bikes Saves Planet and Money
"Well done, great idea. I've done over 40,000km's on ebikes the last 4 years and can say it's absolutely worthwhile. The costs of the ebike are much less than vehicle registration & insurance. Multiply this over 4 years and you can…"

Nick Biker replied to Chelsea Carey's discussion Electric Bikes - Improvements? Pros and Cons?
"Hi Wendy-jane, Great to hear about your riding and the results you're getting from this. I'm going to create a meetup group soon and will let you know regarding future events. I know what you mean with using the throttle. I got around this…"

Nick Biker replied to Chelsea Carey's discussion Electric Bikes - Improvements? Pros and Cons?
"Hi David, What is the capacity of your battery pack? My electric bike sounds like similar performance to your friend's bike. I easily get 30km/ hour plus going up any hill, etc. Oliver's Hill, Mount Martha, etc. My bikes have 2 electric…"

Nick Biker replied to Chelsea Carey's discussion Electric Bikes - Improvements? Pros and Cons?
"How much did you pay for the bike, David? If I may ask :-) I've ordered kits and built my own ebikes. This way I can seal the wiring better, e.g. all the connectors go into plastic boxes from Jaycar Electronics and I can seal these boxes myself…"

Nick Biker replied to Michael Middleton's discussion Globes/lamps for Phillips e-bike
"No worries, Michael. Let me know if you need any more help, etc :-) I find Ebay very useful for all ebike accessories, I've built 3 ebikes purchasing components from overseas using Ebay."

Nick Biker replied to Michael Middleton's discussion Globes/lamps for Phillips e-bike
"Hi Michael, Does the bulb look like this? See Ebay link below? http://www.ebay.com/itm/40V-3W-Light-Bulb-for-electric-Scooters-/300697975319?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4602fefa17&vxp=mtr Let me know if you are able to…"

Nick Biker replied to StolenBike's discussion Have you had your bike stolen?
"Hi Yvette, I don't have a stolen bike to report but would like to complement you on the great website. Have you done the website yourself? I'm keen to get something done for my company. Regards Nico."

Nick Biker replied to Bruce Carter's discussion phillips electric bike
"Hi Bruce, The battery packs and chargers are pretty standard, no need to chase a Phillips dealer in particular. I think Phillips themselves will be quite expensive, especially the fact they are well known brand. If your bike is 200 Watts then a 36V…"

Nick Biker replied to Chelsea Carey's discussion Electric Bikes - Improvements? Pros and Cons?
"Hi Stephen, you are absolutely right. I believe the consequences for someone crashing an ebike will be much  harsher than for a drunk P platers crashing their cars. Sadly I believe ebikes will never take off in Australia unless common…"
