    2017 Easy Motion Bikes

    Hello @WelshBazinNZ and @Scooteretti: Thank you both for your kind messages. I REALLY appreciate how you are trying both to help. This is SO north-american way to deal with issues. Just kudos/respect to both of you. All the questions both of you make a lot of sense, the problem is NO-ONE here...

    2017 Easy Motion Bikes

    Hi @Ravi Kempaiah Thanks for your kind message. But the "circus" continues here in Stockholm, Sweden. And extends beyond the "they ship it within 1 business day" value. 1. After I dropped my sister's bike for repair at the store a week ago (Wednesday March 15th) due to defective motor...

    2017 Easy Motion Bikes

    I don't know how BH-Easy Motion bikes are supported in North America but here in Sweden it's a nightmare. I bought two BH bikes in November 2016 (a Nitro City and a Evo City) for me and my sister in Stockholm. Both broke down already (battery management system on the Nitro and motor on the...

    Protecting My new bike from Theft

    It's a decent setup but you should add a poodle as a guard dog :D Something along the line of a Malinois belgian shepherd, small but very efficient. Note: these are "Academic/Competition" Malinois, they casually hang where they bite until cease order. The real ones, like used by Seal Team 6...

    Protecting My new bike from Theft

    Agreed, I refer to the Orange series (aka Evolution 14mm diameter), cheaper than the Yellow (aka New York 16-18mm). https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias=aps&field-keywords=kryptonite Also several Orange's are bundled with cables and they come with the same keys (one LED +...

    Protecting My new bike from Theft

    Court does a good job at explaining the proper -and cheap- way to secure your bike in this video. https://electricbikereview.com/guides/how-to-lock-and-protect-ebike/ 1. Lock frame + back-wheel to an immovable post with a U-Lock. 2. Lock front-wheel and seat with cables back to the U-Lock...

    Evo cross cuts out

    I'm experiencing cut outs on my Nitro City 2015 (bought as demo bike in Nov 2016 from importer in Sweden). Two types: 1. I stop at a red light like a minute and then power is gone but LCD still on, showing assist level. Need to turn off and on. 2. Under strong effort, like a steep climb and max...

    Hello Ravi, Did you have a chance to test the Diagnostic Tool's unlimited setup on your EVO Jumper Pro ?

    2017 Easy Motion Bikes

    Not sure if there are 2017 reviews detailing the upgrades but you can play with the Compare tool on the EU site of BH to see the differences between the three Cross versions (Cross, Cross Lite, Cross Pro). http://www.bhbikes.com/web/en/ebikes/evo.html Then search for reviews of the 2016 version...

    First 1000 km on my Turbo S – a review from Stockholm, Sweden

    Hey @JRA, Thank you for your kind message and glad that "across the pond" experience sharing was useful. I got myself involved into lighting options too, maybe we could share thoughts on a dedicated thread ? T. PS: don't buy any of the lights Court reviewed in his last video "Bike light...

    Netherlands sells more ebike than old school

    I guess this is another typical example of "The Chicken and the Egg" scenario to play for the People and/vs the Politicians. A quick check on Google Maps with the option "Bicycling path" activated will reveal the drastic difference between Amsterdam (Netherlands major city) and Los Angeles (US...

    Winter Clothing (Battery powered Heated Clothing? lol)

    @Marc V I updated some detailed info about the clothes in the other thread for you to compare. https://electricbikereview.com/forums/threads/first-1000-km-on-my-turbo-s-a-review-from-stockholm-sweden.8654/page-2#post-81565 The day the picture was taken above was "not really cold" by local...

    First 1000 km on my Turbo S – a review from Stockholm, Sweden

    @eagamer80 Size availability at Hein-Gericke EU outlet can be a pain indeed, I remember that my Size 56 went out of stock right after I bought my piece. Looks like it's truly an outlet getting rid of rare surviving pieces. I don't know your budget but there's an upgrade jacket, with better...

    Hi Marc, There's a similar discussion in the thread "First 1000km on Turbo S, a review from Stockholm, Sweden" https://electricbikereview.com/forums/threads/first-1000-km-on-my-turbo-s-a-review-from-stockholm-sweden.8654/page-2#post-81565 With the use of motorcycle goretex winter jacket (I just...

    First 1000 km on my Turbo S – a review from Stockholm, Sweden

    Hi eagamer80, Are you sure you have the "Marathon" Winter version with 240 spikes ? I thought the 30-622 was only available in basic Winter with 120 spikes. https://www.schwalbe.com/en/spikes.html In any case, you'd probably feel safer with the 42-622 Marathon Winter riding it at lowest...

    Speedometer way off

    Hi RFH, In my case, I too suspect there might be an old firmware installed on the LCD display since it was the demo Nitro City 2015 showcased by KGK, importer of BH/Segway/Stromer in Sweden, in their warehouse; probably never updated. My LBS, Outpost in Solna/Stockholm, told me earlier this...

    No, I don't have that bad boy. But I'm lurking at another mean bad boy for winter time in Stockholm/Sweden: the AWD BH Easy Motion Big Bud Pro. https://electricbikereview.com/easy-motion/big-bud-pro/ Big fan of Quattro-type tech on cars in winter conditions so I'm biased :) T. PS: getting...

    Self Charging eBike

    Plus the additional weight and wind resistance of the bodies (bike + rider position) ;-) The only viable option is regenerative braking, pretty complex on a pedelec (1) since your engine is not located where you break most (ie. the front wheel) and (2) it'd need to trigger as soon as you stop...
