1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Misleading title. Completely useless for actually building an electric bicycle. 19 de agosto de 2012
Por Jesse Gunn - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
Things the book told me:
- What an electric bicycle is. It is a bicycle powered by an electric motor.
- There are commercially available ones. Kits, or fully assembled.
- What an electric motor is. It uses magnets and electrical energy to make itself turn. There are a few different types!
- What a battery is. It is a device that converts chemical energy into electrical energy. There are a few different types!
- There are advantages and disadvantages to using a lot or a few batteries. If you use a lot of batteries, your bike will be very heavy and accelerate slower than if you had used few batteries. But it will go further, too!

Great, but what I *WOULD* like to know is how to hook up an electric motor to a bicycle. That would be really helpful. I read on to page 70. I read on to page 120. I read on to page 170. Onto 240.

This is "BUILD your own electric bicycle," and there is not a single practical example of this in the book! There are a few non close up black and white photos of completed builds he copied and pasted from Google Image, and that's it, he didn't post any custom plans, he didn't search for any custom plans to share. He doesn't even get into the basics, like, how do you hook up a motor but retain the ability to pedal? How do you allow the motor to freewheel when coasting is faster than the motor is turning?

Oh, he tells you there are hub motors that you can install easily. How lovely, but I want to know how to use plentiful and cheap brushed electric motors, not go out and spend several hundred dollars for what is an expensive pre-made solution, and the only way to accomplish this is with a chain or a belt.

Yes, there are friction drives, essentially just wheels jammed on your bike tire, but they destroy your tire and burn up your battery in the process, plus you can just watch a 60 second youtube video to learn how to do that, that is, if you don't want a quality build that will actually hold up. I bought this book hoping for some better information than that!

It's like the author compiled every remotely related subject and factoid, but ultimately it's all useless without showing us the step-by-step process of building a bike (he did not have any pictures or diagrams at all of any process, or any part involved in the process) I would have been happy if he had just showed us some blueprints or plans! How hard would that have been to find or make? There are plenty of very detailed guides online available, but it's hard to find quality blueprints or designs you can take to a machine shop to have made for you. I thought maybe since this was an actual book somebody went to the effort to put together and profit off of, surely it would be better than the forums and free articles. No, it is far worse! Far far worse.

Do not buy this hoping to learn how to build an electric bike. You will be better off searching forums for free info on how to do that.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Very Technical... but recommended to be read. 23 de septiembre de 2014
Por Andy - Publicado en

I recommend this book especially for those who:
-Want to start selling, installing and repairing e-kits on a professional basis, and
-Want to go seriously into performance conversions for e-bike races and off-road use
-Want to know more about how an electric hob motor is built and works

Very technical and comprehensive, it's not to be read in a couple hours. Somebody mechanically inclined who wants to convert a bicycle to electric without much adoo might want something shorter. Although it has been written mostly for the UK, there are links to websites and forums worldwide inside. All things considered it deserves 5 stars. Hopefully the author keeps updated and will come out with a revised edition as the e-bike technology changes. The Kindle-version (which I got) is well made and the pictures nicely visible.

My advise is to download the sample (or use the "see what's inside" feature) and read carefully through the Table of Contents - nothing else. This will give an exact idea of what to expect from the book. The text of the sample (preliminaries, ubiquitous "green talk" and more ubiquitous legal advice*) won't give any idea about what this book is really about. It is much, much more than that!

Not enough info on what U.S. Made bike frames to select.

Comical author but, too much info on U.K. Resources. I would not have purchased this book if I had known it was not focused on U.S. Resources.

I wanted a good book covering electric bikes before I would consider buying one. This book more than covers the basics. The author goes into great detail on all aspects. Different motors , Batteries and Controls ETC. This is an especially good book if you have a background in Electronics.

This was a good book for me to read. It helped clarify some topics and gave me a much better foundation for a class that I took.
