    Acceptable roof rack for eBikes?

    Just my two cents, seems like a PIA just to preserve a backup camera.

    Acceptable roof rack for eBikes?

    How are you going to get the ebikes up on the rack? They tend to be heavy. I put my fat tire in the truck bed and its a chore to get up in there.

    Recommend me a Bike rack for my SUV

    AND if your vehicle will accept it...go with the 2" hitch if you can.

    Recommend me a Bike rack for my SUV

    Installing a hitch is pretty easy and straightforward. An SUV will have holes on the frame ready to accept a hitch. The only tricky part is fishing the bolts through the frame and most hitch kits come with a wire designed to help with that. After that it's literally tightening bolts. You...

    Recommend me a Bike rack for my SUV

    Call me crazy but I'd NEVER put an ebike on a bike carrier that is supported by nylon straps with little clips jammed into the cracks of a rear hatch, cantilevered against the back glass window. The physics just don't work for me.

    This is essentially the same as the Yakima Hold up. It's a solid choice.

    You don't want one of those racks that hang by clips and straps etc, for an ebike.

    Recommend me a Bike rack for my SUV

    I have a yakima 2 hold up. It carries my very heavy fat tire ebike in the front position and my wifes lighter cruiser ebike in the outer position. Been using it a lot this summer and I like it. It is NOT fender friendly.

    Confused About The Term 'Slacker' Regarding Bike Geometry

    Another way of saying it is how far out in front of you it puts the front wheel. Think where the wheel would be at 90 degrees. The angle will also affect the ride and handling. Think of this bike with a 90degree headtube. It would be VERY easy to go over the bars(OTB) since the rider would be...

    Disc Brake rubbing?

    I just loosen the two bolts that hold the brakes to the frame. Squeeze the brake lever and zip tie to keep it pressed. Retighten the bolts. Clip the zip tie. Ride

    RadRover bottom Bracket creaking

    It's just me and my opinion, but if I took the time to tear it all apart I wouldn't put it back together with broken parts even with JB Weld. Especially with a part that probably isn't expensive.

    Mid Drive shifting under throttle only

    I have a bafang middrive with shift sensing. I have been riding it for about a year and I still appreciate the shift sensing. I'm use to it and I use it to time the pedaling. I have another middrive without sensing and every so often you are in a situation when its tough to lighten up. I still...
