First my apologies for posting something that did not work.
Now let's get down to the promised rave about the "electric chair"
At the sherpa training session we put it through its paces. It was obvious, as two person sherpa team after two person sherpa team ascended a significant slope that running the motor dramatically eased.
At the end of the trail, getting back into Brambuk, comes a short, sharp rise that Rodney had filmed in the April session - with five sherpas. This side-by-side video shows this alongside Saturday's ride - this time with a team of two.
Two small points were noted
- The trigger needs a sprung return to motor-off
- The battery pack obscured the rear sherpa's view of the kickstand. Battery under the seat would be better and have a lower centre of gravity
We need a better name for it!
