    Brake Pads

    I buy the brand for my brakes (SRAM). Because I live in the mountains, the pads are shot at 500 miles. Would you not replace the tires or brakes on your car? I waited to replace tires once, my son hit a building going 5 mph on ice, never again. I equate things to the cost of a lunch out with my...

    Looking for an Ebike for girlfriend with CRPS and weak right leg

    The battery life has been good. She usually rides 12 to 15 miles before tiring. The battery has always brought her home without pedaling. The Liberty Trike folds but I a not sure it makes it easier to store. The Liberty also has reverse which has been very useful.

    Looking for an Ebike for girlfriend with CRPS and weak right leg

    My wife has MS, her brain cannot communicate with her right leg. This affects her balance. She rides a Liberty Trike. It is narrow, but you can go into stores with it. It has a throttle and 750 watt motor. There is a pedal brake and front disc brake. As with any trike keep the speed down.

    I have a full suspension e-mtb different brand. I have 1500 miles. I have replaced the brake pads twice and the chain once. Where I live there is little flat, it is up or down, that's why the brake pads. Since I ride casual on single track, dirt roads and pavement I have not serviced the...
