    Registered twice in a row, two different names and emails. At login, both immediately reported name or password is incorrect. I gave up.

    Guess what! I think I'll order the folding version. All 3 models got $200 price cuts, shipping extra. This 44 pound e-bike "fits" Santa Fe's narrow, hilly streets, which AIN'T bike friendly despite lies they tell touristas. For me, the price makes the risks worth taking. The emailed specs...

    Synergy Cycle

    I've been riding bicycles recreationally all my life. Starting at your age (60), I transitioned from running 4 miles to swimming one mile. At age 70 I transitioned from swimming to weight machines and since I have done weights 3 times a week, together with biking.

    OK, I take your word for it and thank you for posting the info. As always, buyer beware, especially from a little known factory in China. Anyhow, I ain't buying one. I am happily riding my 2015 Pedego Interceptor III, my classic Lightning P-38 recumbent and my fun RANS Dynamik "crank...

    I believe the question very legitimately raised here is whether Opti Bike is selling two of its bike models delivered for $3,000 when smart EBR readers can buy almost the same bike for $1500 plus $200 shipping from Bofeili's vendor in Oregon. Pick up your Bofeili in Oregon and pay no charge for...

    Easy Motion Evo Street (2015) vs CurrieTech izip E3 Path+ (2015)?

    The following is simply an effort to be helpful. It's IMO, FWIW and YMMV. I will be 87 next February. Height 5"9+, uster be 5'11+. Weight 165. Brain and body work well. Fingers crossed at all times. ;=)) RE: STRENGTH: I've been doing a 45 minute weight machine circuit 3 times a week since...

    It may be unrelated to your experience but a fairly recent post described a Thudbuster that snapped off at the bike's seat tube. Thread is: Thudbuster Failure Ouch!

    Metallic Vibration

    This may or may not be related to your vibration. My 2015 Pedego Interceptor III battery provides longer ride time if I start from dead stops by pedaling with the throttle assist on. I do that and have not experienced the vibration you describe.

    NYC Electric Bike Law

    Even if industry reps "win" 28 mph approval in California, other states may continue to outlaw over 20-mph-electric bikes on paved trails. Trails require mutual respect among diamond frame riders, recumbent riders, skaters and walkers, everyone.

    Suspension seat post vs suspension fork

    I happily replaced my Pedego Interceptor III spring seatpost and fat seat with a comfortable Thudbuster and pre-aged Brooks.
