    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...

    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...

    Anybody Familiar with Dapu 750W Mid-Drive Motor?

    The new Evelo Aurora Ltd. Edition will be equipped with the Dapu 750-W Mid-Drive Motor connected to a Gates Carbon Belt Drive. I cannot find much about Dapu on the internet -- and nothing about this motor. Anyone know anything?

    Need Advice Concerning Motor Size

    So, I was able to find a buyer for my Biktrix Juggernaut - which would not fit in my Komo Carrier attached to my RV. Looking, now, for a folding eBike that will. I really like most everything about the Evolo Quest Max. I want the Gates Carbon Drive, mid-hub, and Nuvinci 380 (or equivalent...

    Mostly New Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra 1000 For Sale

    I have a relatively brand new Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra 1000 for sale. I just received it on November 29th. It has never been ridden. It will not fit my Komo RV Chest, and I am not willing to keep disassembling a reassembling it to ride it. There are a few scrapes from working with it and...

    Locking Thru Axle for Inverted Wren Suspension Fork for Fat Tire?

    Ordered my eBike with the Wren. Supposedly, it uses a 135mm x 15mm thru axle. Spoke with Wren and they have no recommendation. Visited several manufacturers, with no luck, so far. Does anyone know of a locking thru axle that might fit? I cannot yet measure the outside of the Fork, but Biktrix...

    eBike Storage on an RV Motorhome

    I've been doing a lot of research to figure out how best to carry my new fat tire Juggernaut Ultra 1000 from Biktrix on my Leisure Travel Vans "Unity" RV, a 25ft Motorhome. Biggest concern is theft and exposure outdoors. Looked at a lot of Racks, and Motorcycle or Dirt Bike Ramps. They all left...

    Exess eBike CAN be Shipped to the USA!

    Following-up on a previous discussion, elsewhere -- I contacted the company directly. Rumor had it they refused to ship to the USA. THIS is the eBike we were discussing -- possibly, the most-beautiful one I came across in my research, so far: https://www.exess-bikes.de/ I just had to check...

    What Width Tire is Considered Fat?

    I see some "Fat" Bikes (even with the word "Fat" in its name) that have 2.8" Wide Tires. I always thought 4" was the starting point. What do you consider to be the tipping point?

    Bafang Ultra Max Mid-Drive Options?

    I have been researching a fair amount. Decided mid-drive was the way I wanted to go - for several reasons, including torque, and ease of removing wheels in case of a flat. Then I discovered the latest Bafang iteration -- their Ultra Max, or Max Ultra, @ 1000w. I weigh about 250lbs, so I thought...

    On the newest Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra 1000, the standard fork is an RST. The upgrade for the Wren Inverted adds $800. What are the main reasons for the Wren?

    How Important are Disc Brakes for a Heavy Rider?

    A few reviews and write-ups I've come across mention the biggest value of hydraulic brakes is for heavier riders. Yes? No? How important are they if you are over, say, 250lbs. (I'm down to 262 from 276... so far -- work in progress!)

    How Many Have Received Fines for Class 3?

    As I'm researching ebikes, the subject of "legality" keeps coming up. But how many of you have actually ever received a fine for running faster than 20mph here in the USA? Or is there more to it than that? As in, do local laws allow the Police or Park Police to confiscate your ebike? I...

    Choices for a Heavier Person?

    New to all of this ebike craze. But I love the concept. I currently weigh 276 - working on that! Male. 65 years old. Not in the best of shape after sitting at a desk for 38 years. How does weight affect the range and type of ebike I would choose? Are the stated payloads a set-in-stone issue, or...

    Hello! From Maryland!

    Well, technically from Maryland. I travel in my Leisure Travel Vans "Unity" RV every other month, and am writing this from a State Park in Oregon. In December I will be touring Washington State. Doing research here for a possible ebike purchase - my first.
