    Know of any cheap 28mph city-commuter bikes, with Nuvinci N380 hub?

    byunbee: Well, I figured go big or go home. But seriously, Rohloff is better than the Shimano 5-speed. I also figure it will last longer and give a better range. I also asked the owner (Pushkar) why a Rohloff wasn't an option for the City Commuter. He said that it would be no problem to add one...

    Know of any cheap 28mph city-commuter bikes, with Nuvinci N380 hub?

    sdtr443w, thank you for that. I was on the fence about the Aurora, and your post tipped the scale for me to not buy it. I should stick with an e-bike that is specifically made for 28mph. Watt Wagons City Commuter looks like a good fit for me... It's actually rated for 28mph. Unfortunately, the...

    Good point. Guess I want at least around 500wh+ battery. The more battery I can get for sub $4k, the better.

    Why do you prefer a derailleur vs IGH (Internally Geared Hub)?

    I really like your analogy. I guess I'm more of a plug and play kinda guy when it comes to transport. Don't wanna have to be tweaking with my bike.

    Electra must have added $600 to the Cafe Moto's cost recently because that's what they list on their site. I've been looking at Watt Wagons City Commuter (with a 14 speed rohloff). Comes out to $4.6k + tax. But I can't find a bike with all the specs I want for that price. I would like to have...

    Thank you. I haven't directly asked the community what they thing. However, it seems that that doesn't stop the community from posting their thoughts on my thread haha. I just looked at the Electra Cafe Moto Go! It looks great! Exactly what I'm looking for. The only thing it's missing is a...

    Know of any cheap 28mph city-commuter bikes, with Nuvinci N380 hub?

    Wow, very informative. Thank you. Looks like I might just go with an Evelo Aurora Limited Edition Mid-Drive, It has all my basic qualifications and costs $4k. Sadly, the only Watt Wagon I could find on their site with a Nuvinci hub was $6k+. Do you know the exact model of Watt Wagon? Focus...

    Why do you prefer a derailleur vs IGH (Internally Geared Hub)?

    Wow, I had no idea how much discussion this topic would bring. I am well aware that: Nuvinci N380 ≈ 83% efficient. Rohloff ≈ 94% Classic derailer ≈ 95%. I'm also well aware of the price differences between these systems. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that I'm well aware of all their...

    Why do you prefer a derailleur vs IGH (Internally Geared Hub)?

    After watching more than 100 of your videos and reading many reviews, I have come to the conclusion that you seem to prefer Ebikes with a derailleur gearing system, instead of an IGH (Internally Geared Hub). If so, why is that? Correct me if I'm wrong, besides price, you mention that it's...
