    Hyper-bike Walmart online

    Had an e-mail 2 weeks ago. The Hyper 29er with disc brakes on sale for $598. It arrived today. 10 minutes to unpack and 20 minutes to assemble. Same battery I can use in my other 26" Hyper. I had my last 700C hyper stolen. I failed to lock it up, stepped in a shop for 10 minutes and it was gone.

    Rad Power Bikes lands massive $150M investment

    In venture capital that is their "burn rate." Burning thru 25 million divided by shipping out 100,000 (500 a day). 250 per bike. For 1500 dollar bikes they should have made 25 million.

    Rad has a home made look to it.

    Rad Power Bikes lands massive $150M investment

    Lower price points. Less engineering. Also competition they face is a guy buying a dime store bike and adding a kit to make an e-bike.

    Rad Power Bikes lands massive $150M investment

    You are making several good points. Buying an e-bike without dealer set-up and service is wrong for most riders. Buying a bike online is wrong for many riders. Even Sears went broke and they had more service than Wards or penneys by far. The e-treadmill business is tasting retraction in...

    Which is the best of the best of the best electric heated glove for winter riding?

    So I have a lot of ski gloves and ride a lot when temps are in the teen. I hate ski gloves. My hands get wet soon. I have worn latex gloves in surgery for thousands and thousands of hours and never had wet hands in the gloves. Surgery is kept cool and no exertion. I have worn sailing gloves...

    Aventon Level hill climb

    This is a case for a Mid Drive e-bike. The drive train would send power to lower gears and not work as hard.

    Experiences with Aventon customer service and support?

    Bought a level July 4, 2021. Came in 10 days, battery went out and by 60 days the replacement arrived. I rode a few trips and 100+ miles total and saw the axle skewer was sticking out. I had lost the nut. So it was a pain to reach "chat" They refused to help and said to try to fill...

    Hyper-bike Walmart online

    I thought that is the same name that is on the rear hub motor. My spare battery was 200 dollars and free freight.

    Aventon display turns off randomly throughout ride

    Same with my level. So I stopped, unlocked the battery, with my hand tilted the battery "out" a couple of inches and I had continuity. This is not safe. They shipped me a new battery and the connector part in the bike battery tray. Now it works all the time. I decided to no longer remove...

    My "misaventure" in e-biking

    2,000 is a fortune for a bike that doesn't work. Actually I am not concerned about upgrading drive train because i don't give it a hard workout like on my 4 mountain bikes. My other price comment on 2,000 dollars is related to loss from getting bike stolen. Cheap bikes are not as great a loss.

    Aventon Customer Service lead times?

    Your story doesn't match the pictures. There is not enough cardboard damage. They most likely boxed a damaged bike. They may have assembled a bike with a damaged fork.

    Aventon “mis-Aventure” Disastrous Customer Support

    If they tell you to go to a LBS and get a repair done, send them the receipt? You will need to pay for repair and the odds of getting reimbursed are very low.

    Aventon “mis-Aventure” Disastrous Customer Support

    I purchased July 4 and waited 4 days for them to ship. In 2 weeks I had Level and in around 4 rides in a week, my battery "went out" 2 miles from home. When I remove battery and put it almost back in, the contacts work and display shows power. All the way locked in, it was 'dead". So...
