    Looking for "Twist Throttle" e-bike

    The more I get back into the ebike world, I realize what I am looking for....throttle override. That is not easy to find. Pedego seems to be one of the only companies still over throttle overide.

    Looking for "Twist Throttle" e-bike

    It seems like the Twist & Go feature is disappearing. Is there a list of bikes with this feature?

    2016 Currie iZip catalog

    Woah, throttle is going away in ebikes? Why does Zuma and Metro get to keep it?

    Last nights ride...

    I've been using the 280 cygolite. It's a great light. REI had the 360 on sale for $40 last weekend so I picked that up. Amazon has the 500 for $54. I love having a built in battery. For rear, also cygolite hotshot rear light.

    Electric Bike Carrier Racks

    I have the Thule T2 rack for my 2" Class III hitch. I believe the rack is rated for 160 lbs total. Cost $350 at REI on sale or $350 on Amazon anytime.

    Anti-theft Measure - Bait Bikes in SF

    That's pretty awesome. I live in the nicer part of Los Angeles and bikes here still have a VERY HIGH theft rate, even in gated garages and chained up. Ridiculous.

    I've been looking at electric bikes since January and I really like the new NTS Works Fat Free bike.

    Yeah, that 25 lbs lighter thing seems hyperbolic. They also mention other bikes cost eight grand. Is that the market they are really competing with? Both statements really turn me off from believing anything else they tout.

    Anyone a bit worried about banging that motor on curbs?

    Izip E3 path plus trouble

    I like to know Court's thoughts on the bike and how it compares to others. Otherwise he can just list the specs in print and be done. I think Court's videos are great and will get better. After Court, there is huge drop off in quality video and written reviews on ebikes. I've never done these...

    Will schwalbe big Bens tires work 4 ezip dash?

    How about Schwable Fat Franks. Those are avail in 29" and you can get them Kevlar lined for extra protection.

    Any ebikes with throttle override in pedal assist mode?

    Great list, Court. Thanks. What is the reason so many big bike companies are not including this feature?

    Any ebikes with throttle override in pedal assist mode?

    Can I get some help in compiling a list of bikes that allow you to access throttle power in pedal assist mode? I notice that izip tends to have this feature. Does this add complexity and cost for the manufacturer or do some leave it off for safety reasons?
