Hi Court, love your reviews. In your opinion if you could have the Trek Cross Rip Plus or the Giant Road E for your personal e road type bike which would you rather own and why? I am have a challenge deciding on which to buy as I am still not sure about the Yamaha motor although it is quieter and more torque. Thanks, Dave
Hi Cort - John here, Vail CO - I'm new to Ebikes, but having tried out a few, I think there's one in my future! I'm interested in a Velec , but, sadly, missing in your very informative reviews one of a bike of that brand. I'm sure you've heard it before, but your site it invalueable to ebike newbies. Thanks.
Court, I noted that in your Cube Reaction review regarding the readouts on the Bosch Purion computer that you included Max Speed, Average Speed, Trip Time. Bosch, for some reason, dropped those on the Purion whereas they are on the Intuvia.
Idea for a video: after my first off-road ride the bike needed a bath, but wasn't sure about this. It didn't seem like I should leave the power pack installed (water + lithium = bad) but I also didn't want to get the connector wet. (Bosch connector is exposed metal.) I decided to tape a cloth over it, but I'd be interested in hearing what Bosch etc. have to say about this.
Hey @Court, love the site! Thanks for everything you do. You helped me decide to purchase a Voltbike Yukon 750 Ltd. I made a few mods that can be found in post #114130. If you are ever in the Bay Area & want to check it out for a customized review segment, let me know. With the CA3 display & new Phaserunner, your take on the performance would be awesome. Coastal trails + beaches = Amazing fun!

Any plans to review Addmotor Motan M850 P7, or any of the Addmotor bikes? I know it's nearly impossible with all the new bikes popping up. But this one looks intriguing. I've just really discovered your site and currently have a regular peddle bike, but these E-bikes are really cool and as I approach 60 years old a little extra push sounds good to me. Hope you can get to it in near future. Thanks
Just had a branding question for you. I recently saw your review of the Juiced bike Ocean Current and went to see if my local bike store carried it. They had bikes there that were Juiced bikes, but were being called American Flyer ewave bikes. I called a sales guy at Juiced and he got real defensive that I was asking this question. Any info on this?
When you go to ebike shows, etc., tell manufacturers that many of we women still find 24" challenging or impossible!
I've searched the web for ebike handlebar & thumb shift disability modifications.I can't find anything for ebikes. Do you know of any sources?
Please consider an article on ebike disabilty modifications.
I had 2 bad falls last Oct., I tipped over & hit the pavement! 2x! I still can't ride the bike, due to elbow & hand injuries. I have a Pedago 24", but can't safely come to a stop. I'm 5' 3.5", & I can only reach the ground with my toes, or hopping off the seat. Even w the seat down, which is borderline raising my knees to high. 1 of 2
Im looking for an ebike $3k-$4k

Can you email me a few ideas?
