EUC comparison website

Recommended Posts

Nice! I like the quick links at the bottom like "What's the fastest", very useful.

This brings to mind's @AtlasP's excellent overview spreadsheet. You can find a ton of data there.

When I was considering making it, I thought of making a comparator, that would do side-by-side for up to n models you could select, for example 16x vs nikola 84v 1600wh vs nikola 100v 1800wh for example.

Similar to eWheels' comparison charts, but dynamic/data-driven

@Blueblade Curious, what did you write this in? It's written in PHP and MySQL. It's definitely not specific to EUC's but more of a generic tool to show any database on the web. I have quite a few projects on the go at any time and yesterday felt like having another go at this one. I just created a few tables and then told it how to display the data.

"I thought of making a comparator" - in this one you just click on the EUC's you're interested in and then hit the compare button. I intend to get rid of data that's common across all the items you're comparing as that would make it easier to see the differences. I would also like to add a more complex search function so you could perhaps search for EUC's that will take a given rider weight and cost less than so many $$$ or perhaps the rand and speed are within certain criteria.

AtlasP's excellent overview spreadsheet - may I use some of the data from your spreadsheet? Obviously anyone can insert data for an EUC using my tool but I guess it helps if I add a few more.

@meepmeepmayer I like the quick links at the bottom like "What's the fastest", very useful - it doesn't take me long to add these things. I was think of adding others to show best off road EUC but trying to do it pro grammatically ie larger wheels good, more power good but more weight bad. If anyone has any thoughts then I'll happily add reports such as the best commuter or best long distance machine. I'd prefer not to mention machines by name but rather let the program guess by looking at the data.

If anyone wants to add new EUC's then please feel free, just hit insert, enter the data and press confirm. If you're not sure what to put in then there's often hover text over the field name to help. I would be interested in what people think of the system and what would make it better. I've actually got a couple of pages worth of features I'd like to add but it would be nice to hear what people actually think. If you don't like it then I have no problem with that but please say why so I can improve the thing.

Nice, i was looking with a phone, so all it had was a bullet list of stats with none of the features you describe.  Full screen view, much different experience :-) nice!

I haven't coded in php before, pretty much only know a little asp.net/ms sql, which was how I was going to take a stab at it.

@mike_bike_kite I really appreciate you asking and must confess I strongly prefer that you wouldn't.

All of my data has been manually sourced over countless hours from a combination of eWheels.com (who I prominently link right back to), manufacturer sites & documentation, and scouring forums/image searches for pictures of disassembled parts and stock chargers with specs printed on them. (To be clear, I don't use self-reported data from random forum posts or anything like that, only actual picture/video proof.) Conversely my spreadsheet currently contains no data pulled from any other or competing table/database/wiki project with the exception of the single 'Year Released' row which I simply cannot find anywhere except for a single place online. I would strongly encourage you to follow similar principles for data acquisition.

All told I must have spent well over 50 hours working on it (honestly this number is likely even much higher but which people probably wouldn't believe if I said so) which I'm still always updating/tweaking/redoing parts of (in fact I was doing so /the very second/ I got the ping of my name being mentioned here :-p --as just in the last week I have made and been working on finishing a major overhaul). And I think it's a testament to my efforts and the unique value I have created (from methodology to presentation), that even with all the other online comparison tables/databases/wikis that exist (both those around a lot longer than mine and several that have cropped up since), increasingly mine is one that people are linking/referencing more and more in places like this (like @meepmeepmayer did here).

Ultimately I'm happy to answer questions about and discuss specs or the absolute mess that is the current state of both manufacturer documentation and most reseller listings. But I would prefer you not just copy/reuse my data set or any significant portion of it.

Well, @mike_bike_kite, I am happy if you want to reuse the data from this spreadsheet:

After all, the truth should be spread as far and wide as possible :D
