Electric Bycicle

Since public transportation is very expensive in Munich ( about 100€/month ) and driving a car is not an option due to traffic jams I decided to test something on the cheap:

This is my electric bycicle! Its driven by a 300W electric washing machine motor and runs at an Voltage of 24 Volts. According to the manufaturer it spins at 3000 rpm.

Coilgun's batteries

 In this post you'll see where I installed my coilgun's trigger battery. The 1,5 Volts AAA is placed inside the modified softair ammo clip.
 The battery gets connected to the coilgun's trigger circuit by sliding in the ammo clip. As you can see three metal pins establish the electric connection when sliding in the ammo clip. More pictures and a video after the break!
