    Help with my purchase -- under $2k, fun, and other requirements

    For anyone who cares, I went with the Rize mini, with the mechanical brakes and 16 ah battery. It's the best value of features and specs for the price I was looking at. I wanted a fun bike, with a good motor to get up hills, but with the possibility of taking it to our mountain condo. I was...

    First eBike - Rad Power Rad City vs Ariel C Class

    Ryan and all: Thanks for asking this question, and Timo, thanks SO MUCH for your answers. I was looking for a fat tire ebike for me, but I talked my wife into buying a bike for her. But she really wanted a cargo to take my daughter on (she thought that would be easier than using a seat on a...

    First eBike - Rad Power Rad City vs Ariel C Class

    Thanks for posting this, Ryan. I'm a newb to the forum and to ebikes in general. I was focusing on fat tire bike (because they're fun), but I share many requirements with you. The Ariel C looks pretty awesome, specially with the mid-drive motor, the internal geared hub, the hydraulic brakes...

    Help with my purchase -- under $2k, fun, and other requirements

    For anyone who cares, :) I'm also looking at the Himiway Cruiser. Pretty cheap for a fat tire bike with a 750 geared hub motor, 48V, 17.5 ah battery, with all the accessories I need. The only things I see are that the magnets of the cadence system look to be exposed, and the bash guard around...

    Very disappointed with the Rize Mini!

    Just realized, were you quoted U.S. dollars or Canadian dollars? Even if not, I am able to get to the "pay now" section of the website, getting the 16AH battery for $1600 with free shipping.

    Help with my purchase -- under $2k, fun, and other requirements

    I'm starting to think more and more about the Rize Mini. All of the features I'm looking for except for torque PAS, foldable for easier storage and transport (maybe?), big batteries. Kinda fun. My wife and I could probably both ride it. But the big question is, do you think I could get a...

    Help with my purchase -- under $2k, fun, and other requirements

    Thanks for that reply. I feel like her being strapped in is the only way she'll feel comfortable riding with me. And since many serious injuries are caused by passengers being thrown from vehicles (I know this is true for cars, I can only assume that it's true in bikes), I'd think a strap...

    Help with my purchase -- under $2k, fun, and other requirements

    Hi to everyone-- Thanks for establishing and participating in this community. I've been lurking and learning a lot, but I think I need some guidance to choose my first eBike. I've never been a biker because I just hate the hills. I'm in mediocre shape right now, but I used to be a half...
