    Jones H Bar

    @John - thank you for tips. I added a Body Float at the same time as the H Bar, so everything seems a little off. Hearing about your incremental tweaks, however, makes me feel better. How much did you cut off the bars? If ordering again, would you go with the 660? I think the width is what is...

    Jones H Bar

    @Marceltt- I have the 710, and may order a 660 to try. Will keep you posted as I really want this to work. I like the idea of more space in the cockpit to mount cool stuff and snazzy bar-bags! My primary reason for changing the bar was to reduce neck, shoulder, and wrist discomfort - the extra...

    Jones H Bar

    I put the H Bar on my human-powered bike, and am still deciding whether to keep it or reinstall the original. The H Bar changed the geometry of the ride, and made it a little twitchy. I replaced the stem with a shorter one, and that seems to have reduced the twitchiness. I think changing the...

    good urban mid drive, full suspension bike?

    Take a look at the Riese and Mueller line. They have several with full suspension - Court did a short video at interbike.

    Kalkhoff Integrale S11....review???

    I consider Court to be my surrogate rider! His reviews answer many of my questions re: noise, feature set, motor/battery info . . . and of course the ever-important, "Does it have a water bottle mount!" His reviews have helped me focus my search - so, thank you Court. Now, if you could test...

    Kalkhoff Integrale S11....review???

    I really like the look and lower maintenance of the S11. Unfortunately, they are not readily available to test ride or purchase. As other have said on this forum, I don't understand why e-bike manufacturers restrict dealers in such a large geographic area. I can go to 5 LBS within 10 miles and...

    It's INTERBIKE 2016!

    Hello Ann - I see Bafang has 2 exhibit areas: 4253 and another one that may be outside CIR 29. Would be interested to see what they are showing. Luna Cycle is not listed, but if you come across anything, that would be great to know. Thanks and have a great time!

    Is 50mph too much for a light weight ebike?

    If I want to go 50 mph, I'll buy a motorcycle.

    Kalkhoff vs Pedego

    @grench: I agree 100% re: extended ride. On paper, the Kalkhoff option for a Gates belt drive and internally geared hub appeals to me. However, I would not buy one without riding it. I also thought I would love the GoCycle - until I rode it and found it tippy. Also test rode the ST2s, thinking...

    Kalkhoff vs Pedego

    Kalkhoff is like the Big Foot of e-bikes. People claim to have seen and ridden them, but dealers are so few and far between in the US it's hard to get a clear picture. I would really like to consolidate to a single bike, and upgrade my Stromer ST1. The Kalkhoff seems like the perfect solution...

    Where to buy a Kahlkoff ebike

    E-Wheels - you are going to love e-biking. Keep us posted on which of the Kalkhoffs you decide to buy.

    Where to buy a Kahlkoff ebike

    Intergrale 8 - What appeals to me most about the Kalkhoff is the Gates carbon drive. I have one (along with a Rohloff hub) on another non-ebike, and the low maintenance, ability to ride in snow/rain, etc. is a big plus. I really like my Stromer, so it is no knock on that bike. I test rode the...

    Where to buy a Kahlkoff ebike

    I too would like to test a Kalkhoff - am considering replacing my Stromer ST1. I live outside Boston, and have had zero luck finding anything to ride or see in person. If you find a dealer, let me know!
