    Court, please advise.

    Court cannot ethically recommend one bike to you. I wouldn't trust anyone who says get THIS bike. My two cents: If your wife wants an Easy Motion, go that route too. They are great bikes and definitely meet your requirements. If you guys have the same brand of bikes it will make looking for...

    Easy Motion Battery Rebuild

    I would invest in a business that rebuilds ebike batteries, provided it doesn't get sued. At the very least be the first customer!! Think of the printer cartridge refill. I always order from LD products because they sell printer and toner cartridges for less than 1/2 the price. It seems like...

    San diego /los angeles well stocked ebike stores?

    How about in between in OC? Myron's in Fullerton. Small but good variety. Sam is informed and helpful. Bikeszzz in Corona del Mar just moved from Dana Point and they had a very good inventory.

    Easy Motion Battery Rebuild

    Omg. I'm in the same boat. They should at least offer some sort of core credit like they do with car batteries.

    Motor, battery, or me?

    I completely agree with the health benefits and if it wasn't for my ebike I would probably almost never commute. I know my 750 miles a year are nothing compared to many it is still a heck of a lot more than the zero miles the vast majority of people commute. I feel that it is a great...

    Motor, battery, or me?

    I really only use my ebike for commuting, but I will experiment a bit more and let you guys know. I greatly appreciate the help in diagnosing this problem and offering some solutions. I am questioning the cost effectiveness of an ebike for transportation if a new battery must be bought every...

    Motor, battery, or me?

    My commute is about 11.2 miles each way. I do charge at work. My way home is mostly uphill with a 700 ft elevation gain. I've never had an issue on the way to work, but I usually only use a bar or two going It seems like a battery issue not sure why at 3 bars.

    Motor, battery, or me?

    Standard. It's happened three times now. Pretty much the same spot. Before it dies it starts cutting back in assist. I usually just start pedalling and try to turn it back on when I get to the top of the hill. I can usually get it back on and it works and then cuts out again but by then I'm...

    Motor, battery, or me?

    My bike's display goes blank and the motor cuts out when I get down to 3bars, probably closer to 2, and climbing a hill towards the end of my 11 commute home. It seems to work fine when the battery is more fill. My bike is just over two years old and I have only about 1300 miles on it. Is it...

    Anyone here joined the National Bike Challenge?

    50 pages on this thread is a bit much. I just tried to log miles. Does it still sink with Map My Ride?

    Cross Current

    A 500 watt geared hub motor with a 48v battery and hydraulic brakes in a relatively light weight affordable package is the holy grail of commuters. Look at how much interest this cross current is getting. Have an optional 500w motor and a true display for a few hundred more and this bike would...

    Nitro 48v battery on Neo 36v bikes.

    I've just noticed the shimmy as well. I'm not sure if it is something new or if I've just never noticed it before. Definitely pretty bad when riding with no hands. With my hands on the wheel it feels good, but it does make me wonder. I'm going to experiment with riding battery free and see...

    Nitro 48v battery on Neo 36v bikes.

    Thanks for providing the information on this experiment and frankly for being the guinea pig. I have often thought about doing the same with my Neo Carbon. How bad is the range with the 48v battery. Do you feel it damages the bike? Do you think that it would work well if the controller was...

    IZIP E3 Protour‎ coming soon?

    Ravi Did you get a chance to ride the pro tour at interbike? You don't seem to be a fan. It seems like you are liking the Neo Nitro. I do like those. What about the newer Nitros? I might have to get an older Neo Nitro before they're gone. I really like the Easy Motion bikes.

    IZIP E3 Protour‎ coming soon?

    That bike has spiked my interest. My concerns are: 1) I don't see anything about shift sensing 2) dissipating heat 3) its brand new. 4) its a Currie bike. Other than that it is awfully compelling.

    How many of you change your own flat tires?

    You kind of need to know how and carry an extra tube and patch kit. I've seldomly had luck with patches but they're good in a pinch. Pun intended. I practiced changing it after getting stuck and not being able to do it. Now I've done it a bunch and it still takes me awhile. A mid drive must be...
