    mail order e bikes

    I would like from others their opinion on if it is a good idea to buy an electric bike from a source that would have to ship it to me ( the nearest electric bike shop is 150 miles away) and how complicated are they for the average person to put together and adjust out of the box? Thanks. Carl

    mid drive w/ throttle ?

    First let me say thanks for all the great replies to my question on mid drive throttles. I look at a throttle as insurance for an older rider with bad hip joints. It just might come in handy someday. Now I have even more choices to ponder.
