EggRider V2 is here!

 

 

https://california-ebike.com/shop/eggrider-v-2/

We have received our stock of EggRiders and we think you will really appreciate the technology that is built into this product. As you can see, it has a small footprint on your handlebars and more than that, it links to your smart phone whether you use iPhone or Android products. You can easily modify the controller settings without having to purchase a programming cable. Easily switch from Road to Offroad on the fly and with a little calibration, track your battery consumption very similar to the Cycle Analyst (TM).

Check out the specs through the link above and also preview the product using the Youtube video link.

Redding’s Sundial Bridge to Lake Shasta

Sundial Bridge to Shasta Dam is a 38.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Redding, California that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.

We recently completed 2 Terra Trike Rovers for Carl and MJ from Redding, CA (pictured above). Both bikes were fitted with BBS02B 750 watt and Hailong3 48v-17.5Ah battery packs. We also installed a gear sensor on Carl’s bike since he is running an 8 speed Sturmey Archer IGH. MJ is running a Nuvinci IGH and did not require a gear sensor. Both bikes retained their “parking” brakes and used Hidden Wire Brake sensors.

Carl and MJ are so looking forward to going on those longer rides now that their bikes can assist them with the help that they need. They wanted to share this wonderful ride with others looking for a great outing. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/california/sundial-bridge-to-shasta-dam

Update

We are so sorry for Carl and MJ. About a week after they got their ebike conversions, and were beginning to really enjoy their new rides, all Hell broke loose in Redding. It appears that most of the beautiful trail going to Lake Shasta was consumed by fire.

I communicated with Carl and MJ after the news of the fire and learned that they were safe but the fire had burned all around their home devastating thousands of acres. A story that is all too common in California. Especially in recent years. All our best to Carl and MJ.

BBP-1 Bearing Extractor 8mm

A new tool to help extract those hard to get to 8mm bearings which support the ends of the motor rotor on the BBS01/02 and BBSHD. This tool will be on the website shortly. For anyone who has tried to replace these bearings will know they are next to impossible without the proper tool since they are both in a blind hole recess. Watch for this tool in the “Tools” section of the website.

Simple Hydraulic brake solution

The Juin Hydraulic brake system is the simplest solution for adding hydraulic brakes to any bike that can accommodate disc brakes. There are no hydraulic lines to fuss with and best of all, you use the standard Bafang cable brake levers with the electric cutoff.

Also, for those who want to continue to use, there are many that have high end or Parking Brake levers. This system would allow for that by adding in the Hidden Wire Brake Sensors.

Simple, affordable and quick installation . . . . .only $89.95

Sold as a set with:

 

2 calipers

2 160mm rotors

12 rotor mounting screws

Belt Drive update

Maybe some good news to Ebike owners wanting to use the Gates belt drives on there Ebikes with IGH.

Note from Christopher:

As of March 2018, Gates now offers a CDX belt ring and cog which are Di2 specific. There is a particular offset which I believe may accommodate an Alfine 11 IGH with the BBs02. I have the cog and ring on order and should have them in hand by the end of the month. I’ll report back with findings!

We will post the results of Christopher’s install as soon as he gets back to us. We appreciate this kind of support.
