    Cheetah 80 mile Impressions

    What a cool looking ebike! It’s the huge front light that really tops it. Makes me want to start singing the Steppenwolf song “Born to be Wild”. Get your motor running......

    E-Bike lights - Are they worth getting?

    Even though I never ride at night, I use lights both front and back. A fair amount of my routes are streets and roads and for sure I want to be as visible as possible to drivers. There’s many rechargeable lights on the market. My challenge is to remember to turn them off to save the battery. 😃😛

    Is that the percentage of grade? Sierratim, did you try cycling up that grade just to see how your ebike performed?

    How about this vehicle. At the trailhead parking lot full of suvs, this bright red antique pick-up really stood out. Don't know the make, mfg, or year but it says Diamond T on the side below the hood. (Bonnet for you Brits.)

    Why so few Trek owners?

    Trek owner here and it’s a fabulous bike. Class one and very comfortable. Fabulous range, 500 wh battery, handles great and 45 lbs, which is not bad for an ebike. As I’m cycling the trails I’m seeing tons of Treks. Mostly Verves from what I can tell. I’ve heard it’s Trek top selling ebike...

    My very limited and recent experience with e-bike purchasing...

    Well said Mike! Especially regarding comments on the trails. Every time I cycle the trail I get at least one question/comment, especially at the stops. And it’s interesting how the other ebike owners gather and talk about their bikes.

    You are wise to be skeptical about info only offered online. Anyone can create a pretty website and take your money. Start doing test rides on real bikes. It will help narrow your search.

    Aventon Pace 500 vs. Level?

    Nice looking bike. Congrats! Glad you are able to ride in comfort. I occasionally get some minor sore spots from long rides, so Advil is my friend. Many miles to you!!

    Same here Sierratim! Got a piece of glass jammed in the back Trigger tire. By the time I stopped to check, the hissing sound was pretty distinctive. Fortunately only a few block from home. Locked up the bike, walked home, got the car and off to my lbs. They fixed it in 10 minutes! Then off to...
