Electric Pedicab Headquarters
Electric Pedicabs, Rickshaws, Cargo Trikes, and Delivery Vehicles have different requirements than Electric Bicycles.
Heavy vehicles don't need to go fast but they need a lot of torque - especially starting up hills loaded. The Phoenix Brute Conversion Kit has been powering these vehicles for years, but an increasing number of operators have asked us to limit the speed. There is a way to do that, but we decided rather than de-tune the Phoenix, we would manufacture an electric drive system specifically designed for the pedicab and rickshaw industry, now known as the G12 Hub Motor Kit and G12 Pedicab Mid-Drive Kit. The G12 Hub Motor uses an internal planetary gear to maximize torque and efficiency by trading top end speed for an incredible amount of torque. The G12 Motor produces more off-the-line torque than the Phoenix Brute Motor, and uses less power to do it. The G-12 has a clutch, so it is fully disengaged when coasting. This means zero drag, but the trade-off is that the geared hub motors cannot be run in reverse. Due to continuous power requirements of regular pedicab operation, we offer the G-Series motors on either 20 inch rims or as a mid-drive motor in order to keep them well within their limits and able to operate reliably. For 26 inch wheel pedicabs unable to use a mid-drive motor, the Phoenix Brute is still your best option from ElectricRider since it can handle much higher continuous loads as a direct drive hub motor.

Is a main street electric guitar any good?
If you want a real guitar get a real guitar - not a $30 Chinese import.
It's OK. If you can get a great sound out of one then you are a good guitarist. Anyone can get a good sound out of a $1000+ axe.

The state and city government pays for the street lights in Maine which comes out of the taxes that you pay each year to the state
