    Suggestions for quality ebike priced <$2000-2500, cargo or similar, sometimes need to carry girlfriend who is ~135 lbs

    No you do not me convince me. I don't think it is related to the weight of the motor. However, I'm happy if you send me a link where this is discussed in depth by experts and you prove me wrong.

    Mmm I never thought about the fact that middrive is easier to carry on a dead battery than rear hub motor. I guess that is the reason why I barely move with my Phantom XRS when battery is dead.

    Thank you TImpo, how is that diffenent from the: RadWagon 4 Electric Cargo Bike? Also, is there any other bike (non cargo) with a rack that withstands ~120-130 lbs? Those cargo bikes are just so ugly!

    Ok at the end I bought it. He went down to 850 with (cheap) fenders and 1 year warranty which includes the battery. Maybe not the best deal, but I wont be broke either. Just rode it 3 miles seems to go strong. I dont bike more than 2-3 miles in a row...i dont mind the throttle but i see how it...

I know there are high and low quality mechanical, and same for hydraulic, that is why I am asking. The shimano hydraulic brakes on the...
