    Ebike Tune Up Question

However, with the miles getting up there, I know I am due for a tune up and have a couple questions.... There are not many Ebkie shops...

    Can an Electric Bike "Replace" A Car?

    I sold my car last year and have been living with my primary mode of transportation being my IZip Protour. I love it and dont think I will be going back to a car. Between car payment, insurance, maintenance, and gas, I was easily paying $650+ a month for a fully loaded Ford Edge SUV that I...

    Anyone have a M2S Bike?

    So I have been following M2S since they were a kickstarter. Now they seem to be a full on company instead of crowdfunded. It looks like they make nice bikes with nice options for very affordable prices. I am very curious if anyone has one. If so, how do you like it and would you recommend it...

    Favorite cycling smart phone apps

    Inexpensive bike racks?

    Just an update for anyone that is interested. I used my new Swagman G10 bike rack to take my IZip Protour down the shore last week. The shore is roughly 80 miles of highway each way. The G10 held the weight of the bike perfectly, and I had no problems, not even at highway speeds. Glad I found...

    Inexpensive bike racks?

    I ended up comparing the swagman g10 and chinook bike racks. Although they are both rated at 45lbs per bike, the chinook looks like the bikes rested in the wheel cradles that hung to the side of the frame, where the G10's wheel cradles sit on top of the frame. So I ended up ordering the...

    Inexpensive bike racks?

    So a couple of months ago, after a ton of research, I bought the new Izip Protour ebike and absolutely love it! I really could not be happier with this bike! I have been riding it all over town, some days exercising for 30+ miles, and others commuting to work 5 miles each way. The bike has a...

    Looking for my first Ebike

    So I went out to an e-bike shop about an hour away (1 of two around here) to test ride some bikes last weekend. I rode the IZip E3 Dash, Easy Motion Cross, Magnum MI5 and the Izip E3 Protour. I was only intending on test riding as I was going to hit the other shop on the way home and test ride...

    I really do like the Haibikes, I just wish they had a throttle or something for the times when I don't feel like pedaling....

    Organic Transit Elf vs Virtue Pedalist

    No, I haven't ridden anything yet. I'm new to the ebike world and looking to buy my first one in the next week or two. I am in NJ, just outside of Philly, and there is not a big market here in Southern NJ. I am hoping to go to a shop I found in Philly this weekend, but doubt they carry...

    Organic Transit Elf vs Virtue Pedalist

    I really like the Pedalist, however I feel like the cops would give me a hard time in one of those on the road.
