    Surface 604 Finally Surfaced

    Hey surface 604 has finally surfaced. Too little too late imho, and only 250 or 350W options, forget about it. Looks like they spent too much time designing and too little time asking what people actually want in a fat bike. Anyway enjoy. They are way late to market imho. Not a bad looking...

    New Diamondback and Raleigh

    We're now officially a two ebike family. Just had my first 10 mile ride with some hills that make me short winded walking up and the DB made them feel easy. Easily got up to 28 mph on flats but that's actually faster than I feel comfortable riding in an urban setting. My wife just got her...

    Bionx on Raleigh CameoCameo

    My wife and I are in the market for ebikes and she is very interested in having the 350W rack mounted Bionx system installed on a Raleigh Cameo bike. This bike would be perfect for her style of riding. It's a steel urban style bike and she finds it very comfortable. Does this seem like a good...

    Weight on 350W

    I'm 250 lb. I really like the Evo 27.5. Is the 350W motor enough to help me through hard packed trails with a few gentle hills? Looking to lose some weight so it will only get better with time. Still think I need 500w or more. Any comments are welcome, except skip a meal fat boy. Thanks.

    Bat Bike

    Anyone have any experience with Bat Bikes. Coming to a local dealer and I am looking at the Big Foot. Obviously Chinese made but good recommendations from my local dealer so far, from what he knows. Delivery expected in 3 to 5 weeks. Good discounted price and looks like OK...

    Similar Bikes?

    Am I alone in thinking these bikes look alike? Different brand names, but almost identical specs? One from US, one from Switzerland, one from Canada, one from some factory out of China. Yes, Stromer has some high tech features, but you pay a premium for this bike and dearly for any upgrades...

    Superpedestrian Copenhagen Wheel

    Any thoughts on this new product soon to be released? Looks perfect for my wife's 26 in hybrid with little or no interaction needed from the rider, any easy installation. Just wish they had it in 500 w or higher but maybe down the road. Just looking for light trail use to extend rides and...

    Buying direct from Asia; Alibaba

    Does anyone have experience buying e-bikes directly from Asia through a site like Alibaba. Some of the bikes can be purchased individually. The more research I do, the more it appears that most of the e-bikes sold in the US are coming in from Asia as many of the bikes on Alibaba for example...
