Q: Has anyone heard about the new rules for e-bikes in Nanning

I just overheard from a local Chinese friend that by August 15, 2013 all ebikes in use in Nanning will need to be registered, and pay for and obtain license plates to circulate legally. I have no problem with that, even if done as a neat way to raise more money for a few higher ups retirement plans.  What does bothers me is that only ebikes running on 36 volts or less, with a length of less than 36 inches, and a weight of less than 36 kilos (someone likes number 36), will be allowed to receive the proposed plates.  Over 90 % of the existing bikes in Nanning do not meet that criteria, including mine. 

Does anyone has any information from the horse's mouth, not just street rumors and fiction?. I also was told that as you go to get registered, if bike does not meet the requirements, will be confiscated on the spot. And I can not find any information anywhere...... Will appreciate good feedback, and thanks

I think the bikes mentioned above are exempt from registration..  the bigger/faster bikes are the ones that are to be registered....Zhanjiang, Zhongshan and a 3rd city ( I forget) maybe Nanning.. are test site cities for these new regs....... July 1st I had to have a license plate.... and MAYBE Sept. 1st,  I will need a drivers license.

I will continue my search... I did have a website that had some info... patience patience patience .....

that would be a bummer, 36 volt bike aren't very good, 48v 20a are good, I was thinking of getting a 72v next time.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
