    Anyone know of a local source to buy (or long term rental) of a used pedicab? A friend wants to take one to Burning Man

    Selling this Scott Speedster for my dad. He barely rode it. Interested in trades for something more upright.

    Does anybody know when and where the next bicycle swap meet in the area will take place?
  1.  


    SPRING VELOSWAP 2018

    Sunday April, 22 2018

    Looking for that special bike part, bicycle, wheelset, clothing, or accessory? Twice a year the SDVA hosts an everything bicycle swapmeet in the infield of our track. Gates open at 7:00 AM for our sellers and at 9:00AM for our buyers.

    Fantastic! Thanks OKB!

    How long does the meet go?

    Can you leave early if you have a spot with a car or do you have to stay the entire time?
  2.  
    Good questions. I don't have the answers. Maybe someone else can chime in. Perhaps you could meet-up with another seller from the forums and enter under one ticket. Split the cost, allow space for other sellers, and reduce ware and tear on the infield. You could then bail out at your convenience.

    Good idea. I am already checking with a friend who also has a bunch of stuff. If we team up it should not be a problem. I just think I have too much to carry it all in easily.

    If anybody else wants to join me for a car-spot send me a message. I emailed the Velodrome about the official end time and in-out options.

    Update: I already received a reply and was told that the event usually winds down between 1 and 3 PM. Didn't say anything about leaving early but this is short enough for me to stay the entire time. I will reserve a drive-in spot.

    Spring Cleaning and I am not sure yet if I will be in town for the Velodrome swapmeet. I think that weekend is the same weekend as Sea-Otter Classic and Brompton World Championship

    MP, That is a most excellent deal on Xtracycle Side Car. I purchased the Side Car plus Deck from Xtracycle exactly 1 year ago:

    Cart Items SKU Qty Item Price Item Total
    SideCar
    (Add a SideCar Deck: Add a SideCar Deck)
    2SS1000 1 $250.00 USD $250.00 USD
    Subtotal: $250.00 USD
    Shipping: $10.98 USD
    Tax: $23.75 USD
    Grand Total: $284.73 USD

    I vacillated on getting the Side Car for years but now that I finally got one, I really like the expanded hauling capabilities and am surprised how well my Surly Big Dummy handles with it. It gives me (better than) a trike-like hauling platform with bike-like handling.

    OK, I just signed up for a car spot for the Veloswap (#95).

    Mark and others, I have room for some more items to sell for you if you can't make it yourself. PM me and we can work out the details.

    Bill,

    Nice! I always wanted a trike but the Xtracycle Sidecar is more compact. Combining two sidecars make a great standing platform when carrying a guitar amp or speakers plus guitarist. they have the option to stand up on a parade slow ride.

    Putting out a feeler to this community--will probably do a proper ad on Craigslist in a couple of days if nobody is interested here:

    We're selling our Bafang 750 watt mid-drive eBike conversion kit, with a massive 14 AH 48V battery. It's currently mounted on an xs Kona Tika women's mountain bike, so you can try out the motor and battery function. I'm willing to sell the entire eBike, but I assume not many people would be interested in this particular xs bike, so I'm happy to disassemble this and sell the motor, kit, and battery as a unit without the bike.

    With this battery, riding on flat ground, we calculated that you could possibly go 40+ miles without pedaling. We never came remotely close to testing this range. It was always used in pedal-assist mode and we didnt' really tax the battery much at all. I haven't done any rigorous testing but I believe the battery is still in very good condition--if you're interested, we can try to look up how to properly assess battery condition. The 750 watt mid-drive motor will carry you up Mt Soledad without pedaling.

    Here's the kit:

    Lectric Cycles modified Bafang 750 watt mid-drive motor kit, color display, w/hydraulic brake sensors, gear sensor, left throttle, 42t narrow-wide ring, 165 mm crank arms
    Battery: 48V 14 Ah removable unit on a rear rack mount, with connectors and charger. Battery consists of Sanyo GA cells (same as Tesla)
    Cost was $1797.42 in May 2016, ordered directly from Lectric Cycles

    This is a highly-modified Bafang kit, with proper electronics interfaced to a color display/controller, nice electrical connectors, etc. which addresses many of the issues you face if you buy a "naked" (much cheaper) Bafang motor off of Ebay, etc.

    https://www.lectriccycles.com/products/e-rad-750w-mid-drive-e-bike-conversion-kit-68-110mm

    Bike: 2016 Kona Tika size xs (suitable for ~4'11" to 5'3" tall), 26" wheels.
    Cost was $687 in May 2016.
    Bike is slightly modified but can be restored to near-original equipment, and I would include the original cranks, etc if you buy the entire ebike unit. I would swap out the tires and saddle, and optionally the handle bars and stem.

    http://2016.konaworld.com/tika.cfm

    In the photo, the battery is the rectangular unit on the lower level of the rack. On the upper level is a massive rack pack.

    Asking $900 for the Bafang kit alone, $1200 for the fully assembled eBike.
