    RVer Cruiser or Folding eBike?

    When I was initially looking. I thought I wanted a folder until LBS that sold folders, suggested I buy a folder only if I had no other choice. Buy a folder would limit my choices and I should focus on a bike that fits my size first. Comfort was more important than folding unless folding was an...

    Help with a new Ebike purchase

    My vote is to not buy any bike site unseen and untested. Why Anyone would by anything as expensive as an Ebike without having specific knowledge of what your getting is beyond me. With that in mind I suggest buying from a LBS. That way you can take test rides and choose the model you like. No...

    Awesome Two bike platform hitch bike rack...rated for 200 pounds!

    The rack is very sturdy. Maybe not quite as fluid as some of the higher priced brand name racks when it comes to latches, catches and adjustments. But it is a tremendous value for the price. My issue is more with the challenges of securing my step thru frame vs. being any shortcomings with the...

    Awesome Two bike platform hitch bike rack...rated for 200 pounds!

    I just purchased the same rack. It looks like it will do the job, However I'm going to have to do some mods to secure my 2-step thru's to the rack. I don't think the center lock down will drop down low enough? I have a couple of top tube adapter bars on order, which should resolve my issue. But...

    Looking to buy a portable folding ebike this month, my first.

    When I got the desire to get an Ebike. The first thing I thought of was a folding bike I could take with me in the RV. Interestingly enough I was advised not to get a folder unless It was absolutely necessary. I was advised the folder had too many limitations in terms of size and that it would...

    Toyota CEO brings up excellent observation about Tesla

    Toyota is just like the others. They are missing the EV boat. Tesla has shown that EV is for real and not something for the drawing board. Tesla has changed the game!

    mid drives are not for everyone/throttles are fine

    I think there is value in the discussion as long as everyone keeps an open mind. We need to appreciate the differences in the choices we make. This is a large forum with lots of Ebikers who have a variety of riding styles. As a result there can be a a large variety in equipment choices. I think...

    Cruiser for my wife - Pedago vs Evelo?

    I recently read REI has its own house brand of Ebikes. They also sell other brands. I guess they are still different because they are more than just a bike shop. They are a all around outdoor retailer

    Cruiser for my wife - Pedago vs Evelo?

    Yes Pedego has a niche of older buyers. Their target demographic is an older/senior rider. Someone who wants to ride more than trinker. Someone not interested in assembling themselves or dealing with internet buying. With that in mind the Pedego buyer is willing to pay more for a clean turn key...

    Cruiser for my wife - Pedago vs Evelo?

    I agree Pedego is higher priced, But I would not consider them overpriced. Pedego's exclusive Nationwide dealer network is the difference maker. I agree you pay for that network. That network is provides stellar customer service. You also get a 5 year warranty including 3 year battery warranty...

    How big a market for step through?

    In the end the step thru design has caught on and become a legitimate frame style that is no longer questioned. The frame flex stigma, or girl bike phenomenon has been put to rest by the abundance of satisfied owners

    My very limited and recent experience with e-bike purchasing...

    I ran into the OP's (original posters) erratic shopping experience as well. I did not feel the comfortable buying a $3-4K ebike and hope things eventually worked out. I also visited a couple of LBS who had 1 or 2 bike available for a test ride, however they did not have time for me either. They...

    Pedego Interceptor or Electric Bike Company Model C?

    You are correct that you can have a good or bad experience with both. Pedego has their own network of Pedego dedicated bike shops that sell only the Pedego Brand. You are simply less likely to get no response from their dedicated stores vs. online retailers. Read these threads how often to you...

    Pedego Interceptor or Electric Bike Company Model C?

    They both appear to be quality bikes. The model C may even have better components. However there is no substitute for a dedicated local shop with a live person if/when issues arise. In the end it becomes a "Brick and Mortar" sale with live customer support vs. a internet sale with some...

    Juiced = zero support

    I don't mean to throw salt on the wound. But for me buying direct always comes with a huge customer service risk. Once I decided to buy an Ebike. I was immediately committed buying local. I feared what would happen if/when something went awry. I chose to by local from a brick and mortar store...
