  • I read your helpful comments about Hills.etc. Went out again and posted in the same thread. You might find how different husbandandwife on the same bikes approached the problem interesting. Sorry not sure how to take you directly there!

    I'd encourage you to swap bikes with your wife to find out if she's doing something differently or if there's a problem with your particular unit. If there's something wrong with the bike it's better to find out now. BTW those PIM bikes look great. I wanted to get a DD drive initially but they're a bit on the heavy side given that I've got to climb stairs. DD drives here in Europe also tend to be expensive...
    Had some acquaplaning after a heavy shower. Back of the bike slipped out under braking going downhill. Careful out there...
    Finally put a down payment on a Haibike Sduro Trekking S RX 2017. Could be very long wait (up to 9 months). But I'm patient. :)
    Just saw a Haibike Sduro Trekking S RX Spedelec. Gorgeous bike powered by a 500 watt Yamha drive. Price kinda nice too. Tempting...

    Go for it brother. It will be in the corner calling you every morning. You can ride when you want without having to get a rental. BTW did you sort out that ramp issue?

    The ramp issue won't be a problem with a mid drive. I can get that kind of bike out of the basement with no problems. If it were a Stromer or Turbo that would be another story... Those hub drives are pretty heavy. Thanks for your concern though. :)

    All sizes above S sold out (called 4 shops). Guess I'll pre-order the 2017 model and wait 6 months. Talk about what a crazy industry this is...

    Waiting for the 2016 models. I'll go rent me an e-bike in the meantime. And then I'll go to my Rent-a-holics anonymous meeting. :D
    Went for a 22 mile ride with a 1000 ft vert. elevation (6 mile climb) on a regular bike. E-bike definitely needed.
    Got nothing better to do, so I'm looking at panniers. Those Ortlieb look nice.
