    Most ebikers are retired or near retiring age where age has taken a tool on muscle strenght and endurance.

    I agree that many Ebikers are seniors or close to it but I'm seeing a big increase in overall Ebike adoption including commuters, young families in urban areas with reasonable infrastructure who are replacing cars with cargo Ebikes and e-MTB's.

    Haven't tried off road with a NuVinci but can understand that sentiment. I find the NuVinci helpful when starting from a dead stop because you can downshift without pedaling. Never fun riding in traffic, coming to a stop and forgetting to shift to a lower gear.

    I have an Evelo Quest Max folder has a throttle, mid drive, NuVinci transmission and gates belt. Pretty sure they have several models with same setup. www.evelo.com

    Ride Quality of Pace 500

    As time goes on we will be seeing many advances in batteries, motors, power management chips, etc that will reduce costs and improve performance. The Pace 350/500 (I own both aLong with a few other brands) IMHO are 2 of the best entry level values on the market. See if there is a dealer nearby...

    Known Issues & Problems with Pedego Products + Help, Solutions & Fixes

    Pretty sure they changed the controller after 2014. I had (sold) a 2017 Platinum Interceptor had none of the issues you describe. Try a Specialized unless you need a throttle or a Rad City if you do.

    How long did you research e-bikes before buying your first one?

    I bought a Pedego Platinum Interceptor in Spring of 2017 didn’t look at much else. Since then I’ve had several Rad’s, an Evelo, an Aventon and ridden Specialized, R&M, Stromer, M2S, still researching as the industry is changing fast. I was ready to pull the trigger on an R&M Homage Rollhoff HS...

    Riese & Müller Over kill ?

    Hard to make a comparison. Kinda like deciding between an Infiniti or a Mercedes. Both are great cars but have different appeal. Have you ridden an R&M?

    Pace 500 Front Crankset

    I love my Pace 500 but find myself pedalling like mad to get over 20mph so thinking about changing the crankset to at least a 47 tooth. Anyone else tried this or have suggestions?

    Ride Quality of Pace 500

    I have several ebikes with no rear suspension so i bought a Kinekt 2.1suspension seatpost and different shims so I can switch it easily depending on which one I'm using.
