What is the materialist explanation for why Europeans are such cucked pussies?
>Omg daddy govt plz make fast bikies stop
I have an evolutionary theory. All the non pussy European men somehow found their way to the Americas between 1500 and 1940, leaving just dapper dependant fags on the continent. Political implications?

Oh you want to have both an electrical system and a mechanical chain-drive, i thought you wanted maximum design simplicity, that's why i left out the chain-drive. You know that you can peddle a generator to power a wheel-motor, you'll have some conversion losses but since you are substituting with battery power anyway that doesn't really matter.

>That would be fine for cruising on bare, dry asphalt, but on uneven terrain (think packed ice with patches of snow) I wonder how responsive such a thing would be.

Yeah an electrical-only system is rather elastic in it's responses, if you want to suddenly launch into an explosive sprint to the finish line in a cycling competition, this is no good, but in difficult terrain, this could be advantageous because you'll have smooth continuous power-delivery that helps with traction.

>Would the throttle be on the handles the way that a motorcycle's is?

No there's no throttle in this, you have a switch with multiple positions that represent different parallel and serial motor coil configs that change speed for a given voltage of the motor. You'll choose a switch position that basically represents a given speed, and then your e-bike will accelerate (limited only by the internal resistance of the battery) until it reaches the set speed. You'll realistically have between 3 to 6 speeds. If you don't want to accelerate you turn it off. This is functional but you sacrifice fine speed control for maximum design simplicity. You also have to choose an appropriate battery that won't burn out the motor.

>I would hate to have to use one of those expensive lithium batteries. It just doesn't seem very Soviet. Something dirt cheap that you can recharge with a crank and some water–that's Soviet as hell.

You don't need that many batteries for an e-bicycle, so it's not as cost-prohibitive as with cars to use lithium cells, but yeah a less resource constraint battery chemistry that's also light-weight enough, that's still missing.

>That wouldn't work with an alternator.

Yeah that's the case for all metal-air batteries, but they do store huge amounts of energy and are super cheap. You can have 200km or 125miles range per battery (aluminum-air version) and could gPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Yeah, I was thinking of using the electric motor to assist the rider rather than providing all the driving power itself. I have seen those around, and they seem useful if a bit heavy.
>Yeah an electrical-only system is rather elastic in it's responses, if you want to suddenly launch into an explosive sprint to the finish line in a cycling competition, this is no good, but in difficult terrain, this could be advantageous because you'll have smooth continuous power-delivery that helps with traction.
An interesting thought. I would have thought that being able to feel the road would be helpful in that regard, but you may have a point. Now I want to test the theory.
>You'll realistically have between 3 to 6 speeds.
Why not use a dial to adjust the voltage and control speed that way? I'm no electrician, so I don't know.
>You don't need that many batteries for an e-bicycle, so it's not as cost-prohibitive as with cars to use lithium cells, but yeah a less resource constraint battery chemistry that's also light-weight enough, that's still missing.
How much power do you think it would need with the operator pedaling and only using the electric motor as an assist for, say, cruising and for accellerating up-hill? Oh, and would attaching the alternator to the rear wheel allow for the bike to be charged while coasting down-hill?
>If there was ubiquitous infrastructure that stocked spare cells, this could work and it would be super convenient because instant refill.
Decades after the introduction of the first Tesla, electric cars still lack sufficient infrastructure. I would prefer to have something that is a bit more self-reliant.

>I love scaring the shit out of pedestrians on mine.
you try that shit on me I gonna bitchslap your ass

based Amsterdam state
let the cops shoot e-bikers in the streets
weak ass bitches are too afraid to use the road with the big boys
nothing better than to scare lil bitch ass cyclists on my truck haha

war-commuting sounds like wasting a lot of effort on a pointless pursuit.
