    Actually, I liked the picture and not too worry, I'm never that serious...my bad. Being a newbie to the community, I was shocked and surprised at the common denominator - style, specs and sources of most e-bikes. Call it being naivete. Thanks for your response.

    What is the best alarm for e-bikes that you've tested?

    First of all, I hope you're well and adjusting to this new 'normal', and let's hope to God this will never become normal. I saw your reviews on the Boomerang and then checked them out on the internet and their website. Perhaps you have better access to information about them than the rest of...

    Here's an example of what I was discussing about cookie cutter e-bikes. KevCentral reviewed this bike which looks remarkably similar to mine, except for the colour, cosmetics and some options. Still a good review.

    I thought I was buying mine from a real e-bike shop - they had a booth at the Bike Show and supposedly have a Showroom in town...

    Will Boomerang V2 Cyclo Trac ever come back? It looked promising.

    Hey Court. Recently we watched some of your reviews regarding the Boomerang security device and I got really excited about it, until I visited their website and read some of the comments of investors and buyers. It seems they're really behind in production with no product announcements forthcoming.

    I'm a newbie to this community and found it amusing as well as telling. Nothing really changes.

    After the second world war up until the early eighties, everything, electronics to cars that was made in Japan was associated with being inferior copycat of a superior North American product. Then their paradigm shifted, our products took a nose dive in quality for a couple of decades and look...

    I remember attending an auto show when Russian Ladda's were first introduced to North America. The build was atrocious and quite laughable...trouble is, I don't think the Ladda ever improved 😂. The same cannot be said about Japanese products over the last 50-60 years. So yes, maybe the Chinese...

    The good thing about this practice is that it's bringing the price of most e-bikes down and making them more affordable for the masses.
