How to REPLACE / MODIFY Dahon Speed D7 / Mariner Rack Bungee Luggage Strap ($3)

This video is how to replace the strap of the original Dahon rear cargo rack bungee luggage strap. My original Dahon luggage strap lasted about 2 months before it lost it elasticity. The Dahon OEM strap costs about $12-$15 from Dahon or resellers. I never bought a new one and just tied it to my rack for over 12 years and just used grocery panniers ( https://amzn.to/3lCu56O ) and bicycle trunks ( https://amzn.to/3nFxx2n) .

My 2008 and 2009 Dahon Speed D7, and Dahon Mariner D7 ( https://amzn.to/30Wo8d9 ), are 20 inch wheel folding bikes that came with a rear carry rack and a unique Dahon bungee flat luggage strap with a rack specific anchors. I have bought generic flat bungee cords to replace old stretched straps ( https://amzn.to/3lzosq5 ) over the year, however didn’t want the original anchors lost so I decided to replace the broken strap.

You can use customize and personalize your own strap with your own color by replacing the strap. I saw HDX 48 inch flat bungee cords in green at Home Depot for under $3. It is too short for a 3 strap design of the original. Its enough to make a two strap version. For 3 strap design, you will need at least 72+ inches of flat bungee cord. If the new cord has ends you will need to remove or cut them off with a pair a scissors.

You need to remove the both Dahon strap anchor covers. Pull out the end of the bungee cord with the end clip. Use long nose pliers (https://amzn.to/36U8vXm ) to loosen the clip. You will need to reuse the clips. Run the new 48 inch through the two side holes on the original clip. If you have a 24 inch flat bungee cord you can alternatively make a 1 strap replacement through the center hole. If you can find a 72 in bungee cord you can string it like the original. You will need a large pair of pliers to clamp the clip back on the new bungee cord ends. I use a Channel Lock Groove Joint pliers ( https://amzn.to/30VRgBf ) . make sure the length of the new cords are equal length. Replace the anchor covers. Test on your Dahon rack. Done!

JETSON BOLT PRO – Speed Test – What is the TOP SPEED?

Jetson BOLT PRO – MAX Speed Test – Week 4
I got my Jetson Bolt Pro for $299 from Costco and love it. I have been asked how fast does it accelerate and what is the TOP speed of the stock Jetson Bolt Pro. Well in this video I used my smartphone GPS and Insta360 ONE R camera ( https://amzn.to/2Eaqj4T ) to get a speed test!

I took my Jetson Bolt Pro to a local university road as it has a great vista and a long circular road surrounding the campus. The limited traffic was safer for me to run these speed tests with a hand held action cam. I used some of the electric range getting up the hill. But afterward, I rode around campus after work. I must have rode the bike for about 10 miles with pedal assist and without. The max EV throttle speed i got was about 14-15 mph. The max speed with the stock crank drive train was clocked at 17.78 MPH . If it is modified with a larger single speed crank and chain ring, it should get up to 18-20+ MPH top speed with pedaling. I would use the bike hub motor to get to speed and then use pedaling to cruise at about 15 to 18 MPH.

JETSON BOLT PRO – REAR RACK & STUFF – INSTALLED

JETSON BOLT PRO – I got my Jetson Bolt Pro for $299 from Costco and love it. It’s time to start accessorizing this bike to be more useful. In this video I install a rear bicycle rack ( https://amzn.to/30KgJ0W ) for more storage and cargo options. I also added a strap on water bottle cage, as this bike does not have frame mounts for a bottle cage and a cellphone mount. In my prior video i installed folding pedals ( https://amzn.to/2CfeoBM ) for easier storage.

Adding the rear rack to the Jetson Bolt Pro allows me to carry more cargo during my rides. Whether we are going to get lunch or to the market for groceries. It also prevents rear splashes from puddles. I am using my 10+ year old rear padded bike trunk that mounts on with Velcro. There are other similar bicycle trunk bags online (https://amzn.to/2DB5hfv ). I also plan to mount a crate to hold larger times such as lunch and drinks.

The Bell rear rack ( https://amzn.to/30KgJ0W )mounts to the rear seat post and can hold up to 20-45 lbs of weight. It comes with struts that mount to the frame, however i will not be able to use them as my bike tubes are too wide. I will keep less than 20lbs on this rack. I like how it is adjustable and that it comes with bungie tie down cords. I typically just using it to holding my bicycle locks ( https://amzn.to/33OWMI9) and stuff.

For the bicycle water bottle cage ( https://amzn.to/2XRb07v ) its a simple $10 strap on one similar to the one I have on my Vilano Atom electric bike. As for cell phone holder ( https://amzn.to/2PFSQ4m ) i got the same generic plastic silicone holder i used for a few years.
