Hey Macsinvan, I saw your post about buying the Haibike Urban Plus. I was wondering how things were going with the bike? I'm about to buy one. I know there have been some issues with the COBI connectivity but at $1,699 I was wondering if it's still worth the purchase. What problems does the COBI connectivity present for you? Can you still operate the bike if COBI is not connecting? Is there a workaround?

I’m new to ebikes and have decided it would be great to have for easy trail riding and around the neighborhood. I’m 68 and haven’t done much bike riding in years. I am athletic but in terrible shape . I do not want to spend a lot since this my first and I don’t know how this new sport for me is going to go. I need comfort as I’ve had spine surgery and rotator cuff issues but doc says I’m ready now. Suggestions?
I’m new to ebikes. I’m 68 and Love the outdoors and trails. But I’m in terrible shape even tho I’m very athletic. I m not a big spender but am looking for safety and durability and the idea of an electric bike for road and trail riding sounds great to do with husband and son and grandchildren who ride mountain bikes. I want to be able to keep up and not be huffing and puffing. I welcome suggestions, etc. Thanks
I saw you asking about the Luna charger with the CCS on the forums. Did you ever go down that route? You said you think it would work fine with the available adapter - I asked Luna if they have a 4-pin XLR adapter - they said no and suggested I cut off the plug from the original charger and solder it to their charger. I'm not entirely opposed to doing that, but if you found an adapter can you point me?
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
Suggestion: I recently was at a Trek dealer & the sales manager suggested that I take advantage of Trek's 14 day return policy. So I bought the Trek Verve+, rode it for ten days and put 150 miles on it. Returned it for full refund, no questions asked. A great experience! Allowed me to rule out some things I did not like & continue my search. Now considering Trek XM 700. Expect to go over $2500 budget.
