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:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
