Itchy feet - So went for a night ride

    Tonight I got my tiny Chinese folding E-bike out because I was bored.
    It was 10.30 pm but I needed to get out.
    I`ve got a cheapie folding Windgoo B3 sit-on electric scooter that is 30 lbs and does 25 mph and has a full speed range of about ten miles.
    It`s been under the stairs for months because the battery and brake caliper was knackered; now fixed at last.
    Even though it was 2 degrees with windchill I took it for a night blast.

    I also put a whacky light on the front so I got noticed and could see where I was going.
    It`s a SF2 30 watt LEP White LED Flashlight which is a cheap laser torch.
    It has a highly collimated narrow beam that is only 300 lumens but goes for 1/3 of a mile - it`s mad.
    The beam throw for a single 21700 lithium battery 6" torch is unreal - it is really bright for 550 metres or over 1400 feet !
    Can`t wait for the weather to warm up - I love night rides.

    Wild looking ride! Thought this might be about a motorcycle. How is turning on that? The narrow wheel base seems like taking a turn might be kinda sketch
  4. Haha Toothpick it`s a tiny wee bike - it fits in a shopping cart - so I can keep an eye on it.
    It`s okay cornering but at 25 mph with 10" pram wheels and only one back brake it`s a bit hairy - but it`s fun though.The handlebars and stem fold down so it will fit in a car boot or go on a tram / bus etc.You can easily pick it up with one hand - it weighs less than 30 lbs.
