    Aurora Limited Edition Mid-Drive Review

    I have not. Sorry. That's why I would call them to ask specific questions about your situation. Their guys are very knowledgeable. They advised me to wait for this model when I was looking - based on my stated desired features. I never got the sense they were being misleading.

    Aurora Limited Edition Mid-Drive Review

    Not the OP, but I own this bike, as well. I am male, 5'-10" and currently weigh 270lbs. I would say "Yes!" -- it was one of the reasons I purchased this (it handles more weight). Plus, the features I wanted are all included - racks, step-thru, fenders, hidden cables for direct-powered lights...

    Bafang Ultra Max Mid-Drive Options?

    Thanks for responding on such an old post. After getting rid of the Biktrix Juggernaut -- the looks of which I loved -- I took awhile to look over the options. I ended up buying the new Evelo Aurora Limited Edition with the Gates Belt Drive, etc. It just arrived. No unboxing, yet. Hoping it will...

    Evelo Accessories for Aurora Limited Edition - Suggestions?

    I thought the plank and sawhorse idea was great! I will look into the compressor attachment -- oops! Just found out my ViAir Compressor includes a very similar device, already. Another good idea, though. The RV is where I will be keeping the bike, but I think I can store the sawhorses easily enough.

    Thudbuster on sale at Amazon

    Since I do not have my Aurora, yet, which version of the Thudbuster should I order? Rather than pay well over $230 for the Kinekt, I think I will try one since Evelo just told me that my weight should still work functionally okay (just not the Warranty). I am... 265 Lbs 5'-10" Tall 30" Inseam...

    Thudbuster on sale at Amazon

    Thanks all for the input. I went ahead and ordered the Cloud 9 that was at such a nice discount. I will look into the seatpost further. There must be a reason why Evelo offers the Thudbuster, but they are quite a bit under my weight range, and take up a lot of room under the seat. The answer I...

    Thudbuster on sale at Amazon

    That sounds good. Another question on the Cloud 9 Seat replacement... I did not realize there were several versions. Some with Suspension. Does the Suspension model work on a bike equipped with Thudbuster or Kinect posts?

    Thudbuster on sale at Amazon

    The Thudbuster Seat Post is on sale at Amazon: $97.67 Any thoughts on that brand vs. Kinect 2.1? Let me add that I currently weigh 265 Lbs (I know, I know... right?). The Thudbuster only seems to go to 250 on their charts. Some versions of the Kinect go higher. Wondering how much this matters...

    Evelo Accessories for Aurora Limited Edition - Suggestions?

    I have not received my Aurora Limited Edition 2019... yet. It's in, but my RV is in storage, and I'm dealing with family issues at home in Maryland - and trying to sell my house. So this is NOT the fault of Evelo. They are having a Cyber Monday sale on Accessories tomorrow. I would like...

    What Does 95% Assembled Mean?

    I knew I saw that somewhere. Their website! Silly me. And that looks like Thomas Weber, the, Tech at their Seattle store - filmed there, too. Thanks!

    What Does 95% Assembled Mean?

    Those of you who had an Evelo Aurora shipped direct - not to a bike shop: What was entailed in completing your assembly?

    Wow! Digital Trends Really Blew It!

    First, Digital Trends claimed that VanMoof was lying about their ebike being hard to steal. They went on and on about every aspect being a false claim, or easily defeated. That was about a week ago. Today, they are RETRACTING every statement, and alologizing to the company. They trusted the...
