    Has anyone tried a Badass 4 speed unlock?

    This is interesting and might be useful to those in Canada (our ebikes are often limited to 30km/h, which is a bummer).

    Bulls or Gazelle?

    Just on these forums. Make a thread like you did here, reviewing the bike and discussing your experience (pros, cons, surprises, etc). I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate it. Thanks in advance! :)
