    questions about battery replacement for considering first Ebike

    Nethers Batteries – Nobody Likes A Lazy Battery (netherswholesale.com) They said they could rebuild the battery for my Specialized Turbo Levo. It had failed but was covered by warranty. We will see the next time I need a battery.

    Transporting a bike in the rain

    I think it may depend on the number of connections and the "quality" of the bike. My Turbo Levo is made to be covered with water and mud.

    RVer Cruiser or Folding eBike?

I have also used in on a full sized van so you could access the back of the van. I have carried two e-bikes on it with no problems. You will need a hitch extension to...

    Transporting a bike in the rain

    The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes in Idaho has really small parking lots. Some a large pickup with camper would have a hard time getting in and out. No motorhomes or trailers. If a lot is level a 4' x 6' trailer can sometime be unhitched and spun around. Too bad they don't come with some kind of a...

    Transporting a bike in the rain

    We use a similar 4' x 6' Interstate trailer for my mountain bike and my wife's Liberty trike. The Turbo Levo barely fits due to its length and height. We barely notice the trailer is there behind our diesel Grand Cherokee. I once caught my wife passing two trucks at 85 mph on the two lane road...

    Hello from Sacramento!

    Good looking urban bike. I left Sacramento in 1976 for the wilds of Eastern Washington. I did love growing up in Sacramento and the surrounding area.

    bike stand for maintenance for an ebike

    I bought one after you posted. It arrived yesterday. It supports my Specialized Turbo Levo. I had used kickstands (a no-no on mountain bikes) but they failed because of the weight of the bike was more than they were designed for.

    Rear brake up grade

    I would upgrade to an EMTB. I have a Specialized Turbo Levo and live in an area that is uphill or downhill with the only level riding being in town. My brakes are very good and always stop evenly. I do go through brake pads every 500 miles. Being 70 years old, keep my speeds under 22 mph on...

    Hydraulic Disc Brake Servicing

    In my hilly area and some singletrack, its new pads every 500 miles. If I ride to town, 1 mile distant, I can hit 30 mph easy without pedaling. That's to fast for this 70 year old.
