Suffering from a Stanley Cup hangover while trying to find the right chemistry with a revamped roster, Chicago went 8-9-2 to open last season. The Blackhawks never fully recovered, as they barely made the Western Conference playoffs and lost to top-seeded Vancouver in the first round.

A history to remember.

Italian Sofas

As a member of the German police force, my father was there for the Berlin wall collapse. After moving to Italy, the other Italians were always wondering how life was in Germany prior to the wall coming down. My father would tell stories for hours to the older Italian gentlemen.

Nonetheless, I remembered in which my go to be able to to Instances Square in the early afternoon of Dec 31, 2009 had been fairly exciting, and since the actual weather conditions forecasters possess been predicting mild, primarily-sunny skies this kind of calendar year, I believed it may possibly well always be interesting for you to try out it as soon as more.


There are a few different ways to solar charge an electric bicycle but
this is probably my favourite system; I can use one 48V panel through
a custom regulator to go straight to a lithium ion battery or else I
can use the same panel to charge a battery bank to store the energy
and then use an inverter and the normal battery charger for the bike
battery. I've made a short video to show how to do this and put it on
youtube. You can also access it through my Solar Bike website -


The 2011 GIANT CROSS CITY 4 is a sporty, fast and comfortable
bicycle that is ideal for electrical conversion. The quality running
gear, good price and chromoly steel forks make it an excellent choice
for a very fast transportation machine. This model pictured here I
converted using a 500W motor and a 36V 10Ah lithium ion battery
(LiFePO4) that comes in a custom designed lockable double layered rear
rack. It offers a speed of about 35km/h and a range of approximately
30km with light pedalling. The bike retails in many shops for around
$600. The kit is $890 through Solar Bike, www.solarbike.com.au . The
triple walled deep V rim that comes with the motor kit are a good
improvement. Installation took about 1 hour.

Sounds like an amazing ride back in history. I really like the idea of buying a used bike and giving it to some child as I'm getting ready to leave. Sounds like a very beautiful place and someday I hope to visit.

The closing paragraph tells it all in my opinion. I need to say that I agree with it, and probably the most fantastic thing about it's that you left it open ended…this reveals that you are prepared to draw in new and completely different opinions and that you are ultimately very interested to see folks getting concerned in the subject. So, any different opinions?

Hi, I've done quite a bit of research on electric bikes and specialise in conversion kits. I recently went to China to visit some electric bike factories and shows. If you're interested in watching a short documentary on the electric bike scene in China please visit my SOLAR BIKE website and watch one of the videos I made. http://solarbike.com.au/videos.php Otherwise search youtube for "Electric bicycles in China documentary" and it'll be the first hit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KA47vf6f64 . Happy Cycling. Matthew from SOLAR BIKE

Maybe its interesting to discover the 150 kilometres long Berlin wall by bike in two days or three. The most important sights on the way you'll find - using the google translator - here: http://www.berlinandmore.com/de/exkursion/mauer/mauer.htm.

Moving Company

Exactly, Berlin is very beautiful small city. I am just shifted here through moving company. The best thing is these people took my all burden on your self and shifted my whole things with full security. I am happy here with my complete family.

It is very small and beautiful city. I was born there and completed my whole study. Then I came to United Kingdom. There is lot of memories attached with that city. I go there every year as my parents are living there.

I was burn in Russia and my father was working in east Berlin for a year. Me and my family visited him several times and as a child I remember the city was divided with a wall. It is hard to imagine now but back then it was two separate territories, the other side was almost exotic for me. Thank you for that lovely post.
