    Front shocks

    If I ride 90% on pavement, and 10% on gravel trails, is it worth it to pay $500. for front shocks? And does a suspension seat post make a difference if you just ride on pavement? I just bought a Pedego Interceptor, but am wondering if I should buy the Special Edition instead (manly because I...

    Looking for a new e-bike - need suggestions

    I have a RAD City Step-thru, (750 watt, 48 volt, 14aH), and a Electra Townie (400watt, 11 aH) I like them both but not thrilled with either of them. Rad has too much power in level 1 so I get no exercise, and the Townie is a slog getting up steep hills. Trying to find the "perfect" bike...

    Is it possible to lower the PAS level?

    Just got my Rad City Step Thru. I really like it except for 2 things. The battery is quite difficult to remove, I have hurt my fingers and broken a couple of nails trying to remove it. I hated the first e-bike I bought but it had a handle on the battery which made it SO easy to remove! Why...

    Which is better to buy for a new bike?

    Puncture proof tires or a liner and goop? Am buying a Rad City Step thru, it has 26’’ x 2.3’’ Kenda K-Rad Tires, but I want to make sure I have the best tires or liner to help prevent flats. I will be riding in AZ, where we have a lot of goatheads. My biggest fear of riding this bike is...

    Can’t decide- Rad City or Surface 604 Rook

I have spent over 30 hours and printed off over 40 pages of info., googling and reading everything I can, but still don’t know which one to get.

    Opinions wanted on Green Bike GB2 stepthru cruiser

    On paper, this looks great, 500 Watts, Samsung 48 volt, 15.6amp. Have never heard of a 8 Fun motor though, so that really concerns me. It is aluminum but still weighs 60 pounds. Great price, on sale for $1500. From $2,000. Am trying to find a place in Scottsdale or Phoenix to test drive one...

    nominal or peak output?

    Am doing a lot of research, trying to find the best bike for me. Am returning the first e-bike I bought, because I did not like it. One of the guys that I rode with today told me to check on the nominal or peak output on a bike. I did a search on this site for "nominal or peak output" and also...

    Returned my DJ City Bike

    I was very disappointed with my DJ City bike. On Pedal Assist level one, it shot forward all the time. I would do one rotation of the wheels, and it shot forward, I would wait for my companion (on a reguar bike) to catch up, then do one more rotation, then shot forward again, waited for her...
