History of Bicycle (Part 2)

Hello!

Greetings from GoGoA1 Team ;).

In previous post, we had explain about the history of bicycle (part 1). The story was started long before 19th century when a France man invented a 2-wheeler without hand steering. That invention was a pioneer to today’s bicycle. Now we are going to continue explaining the after 19th century development. So check it out!

The 20th century.

The bicycle was known as roadster and early in the 20th century, the developing of ladies version of roadster was highly done. The frame for ladies version was differ compare to the previous one. It had smaller shaped and light material.

In 1900, a derailleur was invented as the first speed bicycle then the innovation kept growing until the World War II. All people in military used the speed bicycle and the multi speed bicycle was developed during that era.

In another side of the world, China might be the first country to sell billion bicycle with their Flying Pigeon. The type of bicycle was vary and more modern compare to the one in market. Not long afterwards, many manufacturers were copying the Flying Pigeon and the country was widely known as The Kingdom of Bicycle. Even though the production was on high rate, people still had to go in waiting list for several years to get one bicycle.

The 21st century.

In this era, bicycle is widely developed any where. The bicycle frame is getting lighter and more aerodynamic

The electric bicycle is mainly produced as it becomes one of choice to commute. The improvement including the frame and battery type. The old electric bicycle was supported by Lead Acid battery. Due to its cheap cost also the material is heavy, people started moving on Lithium Ion Battery.

Bicycle History (Part 1)

Hello..

Greetings from GoGoA1 Team 😉

Today we are going to explain all of you on how a bicycle is made. Interesting, isn’t it?

First of all, what is the history of a bicycle itself?

Bicycle was firstly envisioned by Leonardo da Vinci back in the 1490 yet his sketch was not found until 1960. In the 1700 a man from France, Giacomo Caprotti made a wooden 2-wheeler for an exhibition but it was only 2 wheels with a long saddle to lean without any hand steering.

In the 19th Century.

In 1817 a German named Karl von Drais invented the 2-wheel and steerable draisine. It is a human propelled kart which suppose a man rode this, he used his leg to run the draisine that later was called velocipede.

The velocipede then became popular in London but only lasted for a year. However the design of this type had been a pioneer of future vehicle.

Around 1839 Kirk Patrick Mac Millan, a Scottish built a new design of velocipede with mechanical driven in the crank later claimed by his nephew however the stated could not be verified. In 1860 a French, Pierre Michaux invented the first velocipede with pedal on its front wheels and connected with the rear wheel with the former size is bigger than the latter. Thus it was believed that Michaux was actually invented the first bicycle.

Then in the year of 1869 Thomas McCall re new the pedal velocipede which were inspired by Michaux.

After the invention of Michaux first pedal velocipede, people start producing the same vehicle but in United States the name was changed into Bone-Shaker while in France they still use word velocipede for the common 2 wheeler. In 1870 another invention of bicycle was found by a French Eugene Meyer who later regarded as the father of high wheel cycle. The invention was mainly focused on the wheel and speed. It was called as penny-farthing. The penny refers to the front wheel while farthing is the rear wheel. The penny-farthing was really fast but unsafe. A rider might experience severe injure from falling down from the cycle, thus it was not considered as a normal commuter due to high risky.

GoGoA1.com clients common questions about products

Long time no see, dears!

So today GoGoA1.com team prepared answers on the questions that people usually ask about our products. This post will give you more information about our products in general and if it won’t be enough you can contact us anytime and do not afraid to ask the questions. We are here to help you;)

1.Can I travel with my electric vehicle? What about transportation of Li-ION Battery?

Some mass transportation providers have specific regulations regarding travel with electric vehicles. Some providers treat them as baggage or an assistive device, others do not.

In general, the lithium-ion batteries are considered hazardous material and are not allowed on commercial passenger airlines. Still, you can ship your EV anywhere by ground.

Check with your local transit provider for more information before your journey.

2.Can I use my EV in the rain?

You can use our electric-bikes in rains because its motor has IP54 protection. The IP stands for ingress protection and means its ability to stand in extreme weather condition. IP54 represents that the equipment will operate in dusty conditions, and will resist splashing water.

GoGoSegways and GoGohoverboards are not designed for exploitation in water so you cannot use it in rains.

3.Do GoGoSegway, GoGohoverboards and e-bicycles have weight limits?

For a rider safety and for reducing the risk of vehicles damage, our products have weight limitations. Minimum weight of GoGoSegway and GoGoHoverboard rider should not be less than 20kg, and the maximum weight should not be more than 210 kg.

4.How to balance GoGoSegway and GoGohoverboard?

The smart system of that self-balancing electric vehicle understands the human body and the way how it copes with the system, so that is the way how self-balancing scooters work.  It balances the rider by applying forces to the ground in the direction of the lean.

So to accelerate that vehicle you need lean forward and to stop – take a straight position.

If you ride GoGoSegway -for turning on the left it on the right – just turn handlebar to the right direction.

If you ride GoGoHoverboars – for turning on the left it on the right – press down slightly with the front of your right foot if you want to turn left and do the same with your left foot if you want to turn right.

5.How can I become an Authorized GoGoA1.com dealer or distributor?

We provide people with an opportunity to do business in electric vehicle industry as OEM&ODM and supplier&component supplier, stockiest and virtual franchising. For more details, please, contact us through sales@gogoa1.com.

6.BLDC and PMDC difference

BLDC Motors combines best features of alternating current and direct current motors. It determines advantages of BLDC motors:
a.There are no brushes and physical commutator in BLDC Motor, so its’ construction becomes more compact and lighter.
b.Commutations losses and energy consumption reduce because instead of a commutator and brushes BLDC motor uses an electronic controller to create a rotate that will transform electrical energy into mechanical.
c.BLDCM construction allows you to exploit those motors in water, aggressive and explosive environment.
d.Have high-energy datum. Its’ efficiency is more than 80-90%.
e.Have a wide range of change rotational frequency.
f.Have long service life and high reliability due to the absence of sliding electrical contacts.
2.Permanent magnet DC motor works on the same principle as normal DC motors, i.e. when communicator goes into magnet field it produces force.
a.No input power to consume for if field excitation which improves DC motors’ efficiency.
b.Smaller in size because of lack of field coil.
c.Cost advantage. Using of PMDC reduces manufacturing cost, also PMDC are cheap in cost.
d.Low-voltage PMDC motors produce less air noise.
e.When you need high starting and acceleration torque, predictable motor speed properties, compact size, and energy efficiency, permanent magnet DC motors may be the solution.

7.How to fit an electric conversion kit?

Motor – it depends on the type of wheel. It is easy to fit Magnesium wheel hub– all you need is to replace your back wheel with the magnesium hub motor wheel.

For fitting spoke wheels bicycle with a hub motor, you have to remove spokes from the wheel, place the motor and then put the spokes back.

Controller and Battery box placing fully depends on your personal preferences.
