    Tandem eBike ?

    We have four of them in stock. They are the Gepida tandem and can be seen at www.nwebikes.com The great thing about them is that the stoker (back) position has a freewheel and so they can either pedal or not. If their pedals are stationary the captain (front) position can pedal and with the...

    Hello from New World

    Steve, You've done a great job of identifying another thing we need to do. That is, I don't know how to access emails that are sent to our website! This seems like a rather large oversight on my part. I have sent an email request to our IT company, asking them how I do this. Please stand by...

    Hello from New World

    Ann, that's great advice - thank you for offering it. I plan to follow it, which will be a lot of work! But, as you say, it is a great community and will be a lot of fun. When I see how advanced the ebikes are now and how quickly they are changing it makes me wonder what the bikes you saw 16...

    EBR Etiquette (Please Be Kind)

    Great forum rules and etiquette - and a really great website. I've been a bicycle rider ever since I was 9 years old and my big brother gave me his huge, red Schwinn with 26 inch wheels. I had to climb onto some high ground or a stump or a rock in order to climb on the bike, and stopping...

    Hello from New World

    Here we are coming over the pass on Hwy 237 between Baker City and Union, Oregon. The weight of the bike, riders and all our gear was about 450 lbs! (Link Removed - No Longer Exists) We had a nice breakfast at the Geyser Grand Hotel before we left Baker City. I was feeling poetic so tried...

    Hello from New World

    Thank you, Ann - I've been to Austin and had a great time. Is that area considered Texas hill country? We bought the e-tandem because we had planned the ride from Baker City to Union months ahead of time with a couple whom we always have a hard time keeping up with. My stoker injured her...

    Hello from New World

    Hi, we are on our 3rd tandem bicycle and it is our first ebike, a Gepida Rodanus 1000. We love it! Our first tandem was a Kuwahara we bought 25 years ago. We put a lot of miles on it and my wife especially liked how a tandem frees her from shifting, braking and turning. All she does is...
