    Ecotric on Amazon

    To put Slime or Stans in the tubes the valve cores must be removed. The tubes that come with the bike don't have removable cores. You need the little tool to remove the cores. I bought two 26X4 tubes with removable cores from Amazon. About $20. I also bought a 32 oz container of Stans from...

    I don't know about "tubeless ready". I thought about trying to increase the speed, but after someone said I may be happy with it the way it is I took the suggestion to heart and I am. The bike has about 750 miles on it now and the only issue I've had is a flat on the rear tire, not the fault if...

    Adding a battery

    I would like to add an additional battery to increase the range of my Ecotric E-bike. It has a 36V 12 Ah battery. The plan is to mount the additional battery on the rear rack. Do I just connect it in parallel with the frame mounted battery ? How about charging ? Do I need to buy an additional...

    Schwinn Monroe Electric Bike Reviews

    1200$ for that ? Like Fuji, the Chinese are trying to capitalize on the Schwinn name. If one saves another 300, he can buy a Rad E-BIKE. And who rides 20 mph on a city sidewalk ?

    Ecotric on Amazon

    Yes, it meets my needs. Only have about 5 miles on it, just running errands. When it warms up am going to give it a good workout. The only odd thing is when it's on the kickstand and I tip it towards me and put it in walk mode, the motor makes a whining sound. Not very loud, but obvious. Don't...

    Well, I've had the Ecotric for a couple of weeks. The derailluer is a Shimano Tourney, so low budget Shimano doesn't offer a group. The cassette is 14-28. I'm considering replacing both with an older Deore derailleur and a 13-34 cassette currently on an older Trek 420.

    Ecotric on Amazon

    So I shouldn't order from Ego- Bike LLC just because they haven't updated Facebook ?! You gotta be joking. I ordered the Ecotric Fat Tire last Friday, it was shipped on Monday and I received it yesterday. I'm in the process of assembly now. The only video I've seen is by North Shore Scout on...

    I reordered the bike this morning thru Amazon/ Ego- bikes LLC. The description on Amazon says the bike has an " outage braking system". What is that ?

    So scamming Amazon is a regular practice? I've never had a problem with Amazon. It's the &$#@# ing internet. Nobody has to be accountable.
