    What happens when your Ebike you ordered on the Internet breaks?

    I called around to a local mobile bike repair and a bricks and mortar bike repair shop here in Palm Springs. What I found out from both is interesting. Both are hesitant bordering on refusing to work on Ebikes. The reason: " You worked on my ebike to fix X, and now Y does not work". I wonder if...

    Bike charger question

    Would anyone know if the Lectric XP and Espin Sport chargers are compatible. I was low on battery today and at my sons house and considered charging with the XP charger. They look very similar. Anyone tried?

    Bye Bye XP

    Today my son and I went for an hour long bikeride with the XP and Sport. When the ride was over, we loaded XP into his trunk and away he went. It was a great 3 months! My son seems very excited and I'm sure will have a blast on the XP. Well, room for 1 more!!

    I think I've decided I'm going to bite the bullet

    and give my kids my Espin Sport and Lectric XP and buy a sweet ride. Both current bikes have been great, but after 63 plus years, I deserve a full suspension cruiser. (No MTB) Here are the candidates so far: 1. Bulls Iconic with new modified display 2. New Trek that was just announced My...

    Bigger pedals

    Does anyone have a suggestion on a bigger/wider pedal for my Espin Sport? My left heel clips the kickstand once in awhile when pedaling. I thought a wider pedal may help. I dont want to spend more than 30 bucks. That or removing the kickstand...

    I am going to the mountains for a few days and want to take the XP. Any pointers breaking down and folding the XP and getting it into the SUV without breaking my back and scratching the car? Or is it just put a blanket over the bumper and heave ho? Thanks in advance...

    Bike riding etiquette

    I notice in my morning Ebike travels I see other bikers. 99% of them are young(er) acoustic bikers with the tight shorts, tight shirt, shoes clamped into some fancy pedals and riding the skinny, what we used to refer to as 10 speeds. I wave to every one that I come across. So far in about 20...

    How hard is it to build your own Ebike?

    Now that I am firmly hooked and my 2nd Ebike is on the way, I have turned into a putterer. I would consider myself fairly handy and curious. I think I have a decent start on tools. Tell me about a starter kit or baby steps in building my own Ebike. Maybe I donate it or give it to a charity...

    Has your Lectric XP exceeded your expectations?

    I must say after about 150 miles, the XP has exceeded what I expected. I bought it primarily to get in shape and now find myself going on tours of our city and surrounding trails. I have added the springy seatpost and new seat and the only other thing I would change would be front shocks. Thank...
