    Hybrid electric scooter

    It's a very good deal for a scooter like this. It's amazing for the structure and features, and the price is just $2700. It really is amazing! It looks very nice. However, many electric bikes are so expensive because they are cool, delicate and tough at the same time, and almost as powerful...

    Hi @Cnugget I've been using it everyday, for going to work mainly. The paths I ride are not rough. I enjoy it very much. Too bad winter is coming soon. I will have to put it away. I've converted a regular bike to be an electric one and put two winter tires on it. It's very strong and nice...

    There are 26" electric folding bikes. I see there's one kind on www.amazon.com now on sale for US $756.99. It's bigger and heavier, I guess. It seems nice and has 5 stars rating by 3 people. It's just not brand name and only 250W, so it may not be very cool as some others. You get what you...

    Hi BowtieDuck again, I don't know if you would prefer Urban or Yukon. An Urban is good in a way that it is foldable and lighter, so you can put it in the trunk of a suv or a small car easily. A Yukon is stronger because it's a fat bike and has higher power battery (500W). It looks masculine...

    So far so good. I've been riding it for only four months now. I don't ride it much, just from home to work and back every day for less than 15 km each day. Have no problem going up hills. The fastest I went a few times was up to 29 km/h. I don't have the need for speed or to see how tough...

    Hey, I forgot to introduce myself :)

    An awesome bike! Thank you for sharing. Do you have much snow in the winter in your city/town? If you do, I think a pair of winter/studded wheels may help. I'm planning to ride my ebike this winter too - first year. I'm a little bit scared. But you don't know how it's like until you try...

    Friends Don't Let Friends Ride E-Bikes

    Buy an ebike conversion kit (front wheel or rear wheel) on ebay or aliexpress and converse your regular bike to an ebike. It's not too expensive. I did mine and am very happy with it.

    I'm 84, I need to buy an electric bike.

    Hi Charlie, I don't know if you've bought an ebike yet. If not yet, I suggest you go to www.facebook.com/voltbikes (this dealer is in Bristish Columbia, Canada) to have a look and see the reviews for yourself. I'm not a dealer, not a friend with the dealer. I just bought a Voltbike Urban from...

    Keep your ebikes stored somewhere safe!

    Sorry to hear your bike was stolen. It's really hurt. Not only you lost money that you paid for the bike, but also you lost the bike to go to work or somewhere. I wonder if some kind of security alarm attached to the bike would help to prevent theft?
