Hello there-I have recently joined and want to make contact with electric bike riders-there doesn't seem to be a dedicated place on the forum for e-bike riders-more scattered throughout. Have I got that right?

On my profile I have said what I have done with ebikes over the years-I notice some riders on the forum carry a spare battery-interesting. Mine are 36v systems and I got 2 kits the same-for swapping components to fix faults-primitive but it works. I use LiFePo4 batteries. Regards Peter

Hi Piston,

Welcome to the group.  I see you have also been visiting BNA recumbent group as well - good choice! 

If you like, post a discussion here in the recumbent group re your thoughts about what sort of 'bent you might be interested in, members here have trikes, velo's, long wheelbase, highracers, touring type and racing type.  All the group are friendly and happy to talk, and you only have to mention the thought of trial rides and something will be organised.

Cheers.
