    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...

    Diamondback EBIKES Why

    I wonder if Currie is spreading their line too wide. It seems like the new Diamondback bikes are just rebranded versions on the Path and Dash. Reminds me a bit of General Motors. They are doing the the same Raleigh.

    Should I keep my bike battery in the fridge?

    We have had a heat spell here in Southern California this week. With terrible fires in San Diego county. I got home yesterday, trenched in sweat by the way, and I plugged my battery into the charger in the very hot garage. My wife won't let me keep the battery in the house due to fire fears...

    Glasses

    Can someone please recommend a pair of sunglasses that would be good for my commute? The other day was pretty windy and I kept getting junk in my eyes. There is also a section of my commute that is a gravel road where junk flies up at me. Keep in mind that I really don't like sunglasses and...

    Where do you draw the line of what is an e-bike??

    I was looking over some of Court's latest reviews and saw the ones for: Link Removed Echobike Always (no longer exists) I know being an e-bike owner and supporter of the movement, I should feel some sort of kinship with these, but something about these types of e-bikes really bugs me. To me...

    Even More Neo Carbon Love

    Battery on Neo 650b Jumper

    Court you listed the battery as a 36 volt 9amp during your recent review. I thought the newer 2014 bikes, 650b, 650b jumper, Jett, all had the 12 amp hour battery?

    Mountain E-Biking

    I am considering a full suspension e-bike that will serve the primary purpose as a commuter. My question is: What are the responses of others when you trail ride with an electric bike? Do they give you crap? Is it even legal?? What have any of you experienced?

    Local Dealer vs. A Great Deal

    I have found some great deals on bikes from far away dealers, many offer free shipping too! I value my local dealers, but at what cost? If you can save 20-40% buying on-line from some dealer far away, is it worth it?? I know some don't have dealers close by and have no other choice, but what...

    Shadow with Pedal Assist AND Throttle

    I am hearing conflicting responses about the ability to add a throttle to the Shadow. I have reached out to Motiv on their Facebook site and they said that it can't be done. They told me that they could trade out the pedal assist for a throttle off of one of their Sparks, but I couldn't have...
