CONSIDER THIS POSTING, BELOW, IN AN ELECTRIC BIKE/SCOOTER FORUM:

( SNIP STARTS BELOW)
I've logged 3,000 miles on a 2006 Emax Sport and have replaced the batteries once after only a few hundred miles, and now they need replacing again. I currently get less than 10 miles per charge. My center stand broke, the turn signal switch doesn't stay on to the right, and I'm weary of fiddling with annoying adjustments and issues. My old 1982 Honda Silverwing is less troublesome. I've listed my Emax for sale, but if anyone has words of advice or encouragement, I'm listening . . .

IMHO, that posting above, in a nutshell, describes the State of Affairs in 2008 in respect to electric bicycles and scooters in general in the greater Vancouver area, too.

Therefore, in response to the problems with electric bikes and scooters in general, I've listed herein a DVD/JPG and Text Files containing the solutions to the problems stated by the owner of the electric scooter in Olympia, which applies to most electric bicycle and electric scooter owners in BC, otherwise known as the "Wet Coast".

The problems, generally, include:

(1) Short battery life of under 1,000 kms. means a per-kilometer cost of 25 cents just for the e-bike's batteries alone.

(2) Electrical switches and connection problems after 18 months of ownership of the electric bike.

(3) Short ebike driving distance after a certain period.

(4) Issues with water or moisture getting into the hub motor. Because, we are in the Wet Coast.


Cheers,

ANECDOTE: In 1999, my life was affected by a book titled, "Divorce Your Car" written by a woman living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Because of her book, I got rid of my gasser car at the time and got some electric bikes and a scooter (popular with Google founders and Spielberg.) That was the beginning of my hobby of battery-powered transportation. In the small town in Michigan, population 1,500 folks, there were at least three electric scooters. The Currie Flyer scooter impressed me with its ability to climb up a fairly steep hill. Dr. Malcolm Currie, who designed these scooters, retired from designing army tanks and put his talent into zero-emission vehicles. I now owned about ten electric bikes, scooters, and never bought another gasser since.
