-Want to start selling, installing and repairing e-kits on a professional basis, and
-Want to go seriously into performance conversions for e-bike races and off-road use
-Want to know more about how an electric hob motor is built and works
Very technical and comprehensive, it's not to be read in a couple hours. Somebody mechanically inclined who wants to convert a bicycle to electric without much adoo might want something shorter. Although it has been written mostly for the UK, there are links to websites and forums worldwide inside. All things considered it deserves 5 stars. Hopefully the author keeps updated and will come out with a revised edition as the e-bike technology changes. The Kindle-version (which I got) is well made and the pictures nicely visible.
My advise is to download the sample (or use the "see what's inside" feature) and read carefully through the Table of Contents - nothing else. This will give an exact idea of what to expect from the book. The text of the sample (preliminaries, ubiquitous "green talk" and more ubiquitous legal advice*) won't give any idea about what this book is really about. It is much, much more than that!
Comical author but, too much info on U.K. Resources. I would not have purchased this book if I had known it was not focused on U.S. Resources.
knowledgeable, particularly on the electrical side of things.
I have read much on Endless-Sphere.com and from a semi-educated
viewpoint DO recommend this book.
