    I will be getting one of these!

    Like it. Only complaints are proprietary charge cable and no way to tell charge level.

    Misleading Motor Information

    I think the real issue is peak vs nominal power. Most vendors do not differentiate in their specifications. My bike is 750W nominal and over 1100W peak. I suspect that most 500W nominal motors could achieve 750W peak, but unless the vendor identifies whether their rating is peak or nominal...

    LBS won't service e-bike...

    My experience with three different LBS's. 1. I bought my wife a cheap 20" folder for Christmas 2018. Went to the only LBS in our city to buy a helmet and accessories. I inquired about ebikes as I was looking for a 20" fat tire step through class 2 or 3. They sell ebikes, but had none in...

    Help Choose EBike for Short Person 4’11 Looking for Low Saddle Height

    I have the 750, but am trying to talk my wife into getting one of these. I have had it for over a year, and customer service has been superb.

    I never saw this before.

    Speed limits make a lot more sense than class limits. Prohibiting bikes with throttles is just another instance of bureaucratic ignorance. The few MUP's I have ridden that had speed limits were in high traffic areas. The few trails I have ridden that allowed equestrian riders simply weren't...

    Curious how others feel about class 3 speeds

    I have a class 3 and the only time I have ridden 28 mph or faster was downhill and I start applying the brakes at 30. The only way my bike can get to 28 is in turbo mode with the PAS at level 9. I have never tried turbo and the only time I have used PAS level 9 was in the mountains on some...

    SHOW us YOUR PIX here .... Odd, WeiRd ,UnUSuAl or EyE CaTchIng things from your rides

    Sorry, but I do not believe that. Sometimes even LEO's spread urban legends. I could find no documented instances of a sandhill crane causing injury to any human. Trust me, if it happened anywhere in Florida, it would have made the news.

    Yes, they are protected in Florida, but they do have a hunting season on them in Texas. Generally coincides with goose season. I hunted geese and ducks in Texas and never saw one. This pair visits our back yard almost daily. We ignore them, and they ignore us. They should be showing up with...

    What's it like to ride a fat bike?

    Fatbike? Like AWD on my vehicles. My best purchase. Why would I buy a bike that I could only use for ninety percent of my riding? I could always strap the cannon to my gun racks.

    Don't need my bell anymore.

    I just cough and a twelve foot swath immediately opens up in front of me. It is amazing that a pedestrian can't hear a bell from ten feet, but can hear a cough from thirty yards. JK, haven't ridden in over a week.

    What do you use for a Helmet? (Pictures Thread)

    Brake lights are automatic when the app senses a reduction in speed. Turn signals are activated with a remote attached to the handlebar that is paired with the helmet. Unlike the integrated turn signals on the bike, the helmet has an audible clicking sound so I remember to turn them off after...

    What do you use for a Helmet? (Pictures Thread)

    A little heavier than I would like, but some of my riding is in areas I might not be found for hours if I crashed or had a health emergency. Brake lights and turn signals are much more visible than the ones integrated on my bike.

    A very pleasant ride today through Amberjack Enviromental Area. Nice wide dirt/sand trails through the pines and palmettos. Not recommended for skinny tires as the wife had to walk her bike through some areas and we had to back track occasionally because the sand was too deep for too long...

    Tough day for a ride today. Low 80's F, light wind and clear skies. I had ridden past the trail head for the Cape Haze Pioneer trail dozens of times, but today was the first time I stopped. I had never noticed the bike repair station with more bike tools than I will ever own cabled to it...
