ELECTRICAL VEHICLE INTRODUCTION

Hello!

Greetings from GoGoA1 Team ;).

EV is also called as an electric vehicle, one or more power electric motors. An electric vehicle powered by electricity from off-vehicle sources through a collector system or may be self-contained with a battery, a generator for converting fuel to electricity.
EVs include, but are not limited to, road and rail vehicles, land and underwater boats, EVs first came into being in the mid-19th century, when electricity was among the preferred methods of propulsion for motor vehicles, offering a level of comfort and ease of operation that the gasoline cars of the time could not achieve.

For nearly 100 years, modern internal combustion engines have been the dominant propulsion system for motor vehicles, but electric power has remained prevalent in other types of vehicles, such as trains and smaller vehicles of all sizes.
The word EV is generally used to refer to an electric vehicle. Due to technological advancements, EVs saw a rebirth in the 21st century and increased focus on renewable energy.
Developed a lot of demand for electric vehicles and a small core of do – it-yourself engineers started sharing technical details for making conversions of electric vehicles. State programs were implemented to step up adoptions. It is projected that electric vehicles will grow from 2 percent of global share in 2016 to 22 percent in 2030.

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.

The Difference of Speed and Fixed Geared Cycle

Hello!

Greetings from GoGoA1 Team 😉

Today we are going to discuss about speed gears on bicycle!

So what is exactly speed gear? Have you ever heard about 21 gears, 27 gears, and no gears whenever you want to purchase your first bicycle? Do not get a mistake by buying the wrong one for your needs. Here you can learn what it is before going to bicycle shop!

Basically the gears are the important tool on each geared bicycle to make your riding experience easier and more flexible. The gear itself can be divided into 2 parts, left handle gear and  right handle gear. The former has numbering 1 2 3 while the latter used to have 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 written there. The left gears represent the ring chain near the paddle are used to shift down and the right ones represent the rear ring.

What is the purpose for each gear?

Many sport bicycle including mountain bicycle use gear as part of it. However some bikes does not have any, for instance the city/road bikes. The gear itself help rider to adjust their mobility for example when the rider meets an uphill road and it feels very hard to pedal then shift down the gear to make it easier. The same concept applies on down hill, it gets easier and no need to use pedal but when the rider wants to have a little bit cycling then shift up the gear. That’s it.

So what is the function on each handle gear shiftier?

Each handle brings its purpose.

Left handle, consist of 3 number gears 1 2 3. Number 1 is the smallest gear while number 3 is the opposite. The location of these rings are near the paddle. It will move onto different rings whenever the rider shifts it.

Right handle, consist of several number depends on the type of the bicycle itself. Some bicycles have 21, 27, 30, or 33 gears. Each number has meaning, for example 21 gears will have 7 rings in the rear wheels. Opposite to the left handle gears, the number written on the right one depends on how many gears the bicycle has. Number 1 is the biggest gear while number 7 is the smallest one.

 

 

 

The above picture shown the 7 gears on a rear wheel (left picture) and 3 gears on paddle (right picture).

What is the best gear adjustment?

There is no such thing because it truly depends on the rider on how he/she feels comfortable while riding a bike. However some riders used to specific gears in common while cycling on a particular terrain. For instance put the left handle gear on 3 and right gear on 1 to fastest experience. If you feel uneasy cycling uphill then adjust the gear into 2 on the left and 3/4 on the right.

How about the non geared/fixed geared cycle?

Non geared or so called single geared cycle means it has no gear adjustment in a particular bicycle. This usually applies on city/road bike in which you don’t need to shift any gear. However this is not literally gear less ;D. It has the gear but already set on specific number. Suppose we have the geared cycle and want to ride it like fixed gear, we can number it 3 on left and 1 on right. However in a fixed geared cycle, there is no gear adjustment and number on it due to the stability of the terrain.

So how is the information? It is clear enough, isn’t it?

In GOGOA1.com, we provide both kind of bicycles the gear ones and fixed gear. Which one is your favorite? Don’t forget to visit our page in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and subscribe us on YouTube. See you there!

Hello!

Greetings from GoGoA1 Team 😉

On the previous post we have shared company’s thought about the new vision and future rules of government to have only Electric Vehicle (EV) on roads. GoGoA1 is standing out in between the gap of future transformation. In the earlier years, GoGoA1 had launched the first electric conversion kit for bicycle and rickshaw also provided its components that was proven to be beneficial for mostly engineering student in their final year to make a project. Since ever the announcement of 2030 vision, GoGoA1 is currently working on electric car conversion kit that expect to be launched in a short time.

Just a month after the controversy statement from Minister of transportation and Highways, Nitin Gadkari about the policy of Electric Vehicle (EV), a new vision is set by decreasing the percentage of EV sales and on roads! Minister of Power in his lunch presentation stated that  the policy might be expected soon but the former plan to only allow EV on roads changed into specific amount. The changing leaves several questions like will the targeted vision can be pursued?

Here GoGoA1 will help you out finding your business dream as well as using the new futuristic product itself.

Magnesium Alloy (MAG) Wheel VS Spokes Wheels

Hello!

Greetings from GoGoA1 team.

Many of you had asked which wheels better to run on your favorite cycle. Officially GoGoA1 has sold 2 types of wheels for any bicycles. They are MAG or so called magnesium alloy and spokes wheels. Both of them can be applied in our customize bicycle, but do you know that each wheel has its own benefit and purpose? Before you purchase for it, let’s learn how is the difference. Check this out!

1. Magnesium Alloy (MAG) Wheels

In the past post, we already explained the advantages of magnesium alloy wheels that you can read directly from here.

The magnesium alloy wheels are made of pure alloy which have undeniable benefit for making it light weighted and not corroded.

3 Thing You Should Consider Before Buying An Electric Bicycle (Part 2)

Greetings from GoGoA1 team!

We had talked about the main 3 things you should consider before buying an electric bicycle on part 1. Are curious enough to read the second part? Here we go!

2. Battery
First generation of e bikes used Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery with mid to high power on it. As technologies develop, this kind of battery is replaced by Lithium Ion/Polymer. The Lead Acid battery had also been used in submarine, solar energy storage, and automotive and traction industry before. It has advantages for its robust, tolerant of overcharging, and deliver high current. It also less costly. However it only has short life span, it’s slow and inefficient charging.

While The Lithium Ion battery has more advantages compare to former battery.

  • It is fast charging with efficiency near 100% even when discharge
  • The weight is lighter, more than half lesser of Lead Acid
  • Long life cycle around 5000 times compared to 400-500 cycles in Lead Acid
  • Environment friendly

Despite its cost is pricey, but it gives more benefits for any application.

Lithium Ion Battery

Due to the facts that Lithium Ion Battery has taken over the place for decades and its superior specifications, GoGoA1.com had already set the plan to provide electric conversion kit with Lithium Battery on it. Also all electric bicycle under GoGoA1.com company are installed with the same battery. Furthermore, we still can find the application of Lead Acid battery on electric bicycle in the market. The mid drive cycle can be installed with either Lithium Ion or Lead Acid depends on customer choice.

 

3. Controller

Basically the controller can be pedal based and throttle based. The former means that the electric power will be activated when pedaling. Once the button is turned on, you can feel the electric force by only pedaling just like the way people cycling. It comes naturally. While the other hand, throttle based controller is way different. The source is in a throttle. Once the button is turned on, you can only pull the throttle to get the electric force. No need pedaling. It is suitable to ride on road as there is no particular effort to push the pedal.

The above throttle-based controllers are used depending on the kind of motor. BLDC controller is used for 3-phase BLDC Hub Motor while PMDC controller is used for single phase PMDC Motor.

So now you know what things to consider before purchasing your first Electric Bicycle.

3 Things You Should Consider Before Buying An Electric Bicycle (Part 1)

Hello!

Greetings from GoGoA1.com team 😉

In a previous post, we had talked about the advantages and disadvantages of Electric Bicycle. We all agree that Electric Bicycle has more positive things and be worthy enough to purchase. Today we are going to explain more what specifications are there to help you consider before spending your money. Let’s check it out!

Nowadays Electric Bicycle has reached the heart of people specifically Indians as we already know its advantages compare to non-electric ones [read the post here], but do we all know what it is exactly? How does it run on electrical driven?

Electric Bicycle (e-bikes) is bicycle with an integrated electric motor to reduce human power while riding the cycle . It will help reducing 30% human effort up to 100% (effortless) depends on choice. There few types of Electric Bicycle in the market. Most of them are ready-to-use or installed cycle, which we can directly ride on it as we purchased and non-electric cycle, which we can convert with electric conversion kit. E bike has 3 main parts that attached on it in order to give electric-driven cycle.

1. Motor

In an e bikes, the motor plays an important roles to give a different result. However this can be customized with the specification of each motor, the outcome still be not the same and satisfying. The motors can be hub motor and mid drive motor. Our bicycles use Brushless DC (BLDC) motor in rear wheels [see the full post of BLDC motor here]. In other hand, mid drive motor can be BLDC or PMDC (Permanent Magnet DC).

Hub motor is often preferred as a driven in an e bike due to its easiness to only pull throttle when we are going to ride in electric mode. This kind of motor are widely used in the market right now. It can be installed in the front or rear wheels, while most of e bikes put in on the latter. GoGoA1 Solomo black mag

The advantages of rear hub motor are users will get pushing effect instead of pulling. It is considered safer when a rider tries to make sudden stop. While the front hub will pull a rider out from the cycle. Besides hub motor is affordable enough compare to mid drive. It gives a best output for an e bike beginner out of there.

2. Battery

First generation of e bikes used Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery with mid to high power on it. As technologies development, this kind of battery is replaced by Lithium Ion/Polymer. The latter is bringing new technologies

Next part, we are going to explain more the second and third important things on an Electric Bicycle. Just follow this blog and stay tuned 😉
