    CDC 2019 to 2020 US flu season estimates

    It's true that the ship had a larger number of older passengers. Considering 34 percent of US citizens are over 50, the numbers are still sobering. At least the plan for reopening the economy falls into line with the "flatten the curve" concept. One less mystery...

    CDC 2019 to 2020 US flu season estimates

    The Diamond Princess cruise ship was an excellent population sample from which to extrapolate data. Since every passenger was tested, asymptomatic cases were included. According to the worldometer website, there were 712 cases, of which 12 have died so far, (and there are still 7 in serious...

    Riese & Muller Tinker

    I love this thread. The Tinker vs. Vektron discussion has been enlightening. To add another bike to the mix, what about the Tinker Vario vs. Tern HSD S8I. Both are non-folding compact bikes with belt drives.

    Buying a used ebike- Easy Motion Neo 29er

    I wouldn't worry about the mileage as much as the 3 year old battery. Figure in the cost of battery replacement as part of the purchase price. (Unless the battery was replaced within the last year). Once you add in the battery cost, then compare that bike to others.

    Hello from hilly Southbury CT

    An unusually astute observation and description of one's local topography... Are you a geoscientist, surveyor, or the like; or merely an avid bicyclist that wanted to know the lay of the land?

    Haibike All Mountain Pro Question/Help

    It is a Bosch motor. Don't do anything to it. If you want more speed, sell the bike and replace with a speed pedelec. Bosch does make a high speed motor, but you can't swap them out.

    Forward vs. Upright riding for long touring

    For the sake of this post, lets say "long" distance is 80 miles in a day. If a rider goes 20mph, then it means sitting on the bike for 4 hours.... Sheesh, seems like a person could double it! But I digress... So, if comfort cruisers are comfortable, would it make sense to enjoy the upright...

    Ebike for Long Distance Touring

    It is great that you have time to plan and prepare. I would recommend sticking with panniers, simpler in the long run. Especially since you plan to travel light. Make a check list for what you are looking for in a bike. The number of bikes out there can get intimidating. This will help keep...

    debating wether to jump to another ebike brand~

    Ravi, I didn't mean harsh that you didn't invite Chicago... I meant what fxr3 said was harsh... Chicago has made it clear that he is trying to get a rack with which to transport his Stromer before making the trip (in other threads).

    Torque

    Don't know if it helps, but I weigh 300lbs and found the turbo x to have plenty of oompf on the flat. (Didn't have any hills to try it on).
