Is there anyone in the Glen Eden area interested in working with me to start a community garden near the beginning of the cycle/walkway at Savoy Rd? I'd like to get this started ASAP. Please email sarahjamesnz@gmail.com if you're interested. The idea is for fruit trees and vege gardens and herbs and composting on site. Please let anyone know who you think might be interested. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you!

Waiheke Island E-Bike kit Group Buying. Update on the mid-mount, bottom-bracket ebike motor kit:

Looks like we will cut off at the end of this week or beginning of next (by the 15th of October at the latest). So far everyone who is in is going for the kit option of the better INR 29E battery which with motor & accessories works out to NZ$1,421 for everything. We also will be running an installation party on a sunny Saturday for DIY folk.

See http://slowcycles.com/index.php/buynz for details.

In summary, we spent a year researching ebikes to find who made the best (affordable) motors and batteries, and visited three factories in China before settling on the new Bafang BBS01 motor and the Samsung INR 29E battery (specs: 403 w/hrs, 11.2 a/hr, 37v and 2.2KG). Both the motors and the batteries are being purchased direct from the respective manufacturers and the group buy reduces shipping costs substantially.

The motor is new for 2013, and far superior to the hub motors commonly available. It drives the chain, which means it uses the gears, like a car. It's also a lot quieter. The battery is phenomenally light for the power it delivers. Most importantly, they fit on most bikes. You put it on your own bike; it is a kit, not an ebike.

We planned to buy six kits for our foundation, but when others heard about it, they asked if they could join in. We will be cutting off orders by the 15th because it will probably take 6-8 weeks before we get the kits and we want them before the summer holiday.

So if you are interested go to slowcycles.com and use the contact tab.

Note: This is a one-off. Once we have the kits we need, we won't be repeating it.

The Renaissance Aotearoa Foundation on Waiheke Island is placing an order for Bafang BBS01 ebike kits (small electric motors that turn a bicycle into an ebike) shortly. A number of people have approached us to ask if they can piggyback on the order to get a wholesale price and save on shipping. Sounds good to us. If you are interested in piggybacking or just want to learn more, see our web site at  http://slowcycles.com/index.php/buynz . These 36v, NZ legal kits fit most standard bikes, do not require changing the hub or rim, and cost a lot less than an ebike. If you have a bike you are not using because the hills are too tough, the range too far or your knees too creaky, this may be the answer. Note that these kits work with your gears, so a lower-powered motor can assist going up a steep hill. They will not turn your bike into a moped (you still have to pedal), but they do flatten the hills to extend both riding range, and the age at which we can still enjoy bicycling. A bike shop in Auckland will install the kit if you are not mechanically minded or lack the requisite tools. Please reply soon as we expect to ask for a quote by mid August (2013) at the latest.
