    Some unusual accessories

    I like the saddle, but it may be inappropriate on this kind of bike. I've a Brooks B67 on my Electra Townie GO and I think it's the right choice.

    I 'd say that it goes 3 ½". I like my Brooks saddle if it's what you asked. It's not a soft seat and it has to be made by riding and riding again. But once it's done it's a pleasure.

    I put a Suntour NCX on my Electra, six months ago. That's really efficient, it gives you the confort you don't have with a hardtail bike. My old bike says thanks.

    Suntour NCX

    The best purchase I've ever made for my bike and for my back. Many streets in Paris are made of old cobblestones, my bike is a hardtail so you can imagine.

    Budnitz Ebike

    I don't know about the battery capacity, it's difficult to know because of their KERS system. But in fact I would be more concerned by the heat.

    Q: Has owning an e-bike changed your car driving habits?

    You are right, there is a lot of places where I didn't go with my motorcycle. I've found new ways to go from one point to another. And I think I stop more easily, I mean, riding an E-bike gives you the time to see what is around you, so when I am interested by something, I don't hesitate to...

    Q: Has owning an e-bike changed your car driving habits?

    James, I'm in the same situation than you are. I live in Paris, and everything, work, shops, friends, is under 10 miles away. Before buying an E-bike, I didn't use my car in Paris. I used a motorcycle. It was an old beauty but the very new regulations in Paris don't allow old vehicles to...
