(also written as Ockham’s razor, Latin lex parsimoniae) is the law of parsimony, economy or succinctness. It is a principle urging one to select from among competing hypotheses that which makes the fewest assumptions and thereby offers the simplest explanation of the effect. —Wikipedia

This project is an electric scooter, for Jamo’s EV Design Class.  I have decided to go the simplest, and slightly oddball route.  Occam’s Razor [scooter] will have no onboard electrical parts.  It will use a channel for the frame, a mechanical throttle and cable, and a single rear disk brake adapted from a bicycle.  Whats the catch, and how does it go?  Well, I’m glad you asked!  I saw the following youtube video, and decided that I have to power Occam’s Razor with a Dewalt Hammerdrill:

I won’t be purchasing his expensive adapter, but making my own instead.  Stay tuned for more awesome EV-ness as the Occam’s Razor is constructed!
