    Displays using iPhone may Break 'Em?

    I dislike ebike displays that reply heavily on or require iPhone or Android smartphones. Today is a BBC story about Apple says several models of iPhone are susceptible to the damage from vibrations produced by motorcycles. Of course, and ebike ain't a motorcycle running 70mph, but when I think...

    Court, please review FST for Commuters and light trail.

    Hi Court, As you were the first to suggest, full suspension EMTBs are great for sore knees and rut-filled streets. But most youtubes review FST ebikes for DOWNHILL bombing, not for people who have one ebike and use it to go places and secondarily ride dirt and trails. Some of us actually work...

    Smelly Skunk U-Lock - Court, please add Anti-Theft Measures in your reviews

    This is new BBC article on anti-theft for bicycles. They discuss the "skunk-lock" - made in San Francisco - and I hope Court will include what anti-theft measures are designed into bikes he reviews. IMHO, they are as important as the oft-mentioned water bottle issue Court likes to highlight...

    Better guide to deciphering Haibike product lines

    I've posted before about my difficulty in sorting out Haibike's product lines. This one page of bikes gave me a better idea as I scrolled down the page -- you will note the front shock travel distances that seems to indicate the duty to which each is made (or aimed at, marketing-wise) in 2017...

    Anyone have a 1-page guide to decipher Haibike names ?

    This may be the best one-page guide to haibikes. I'm a 2016 haibikes-on-sale shopper, but I was dismayed at how Haibike complicated its product lines even more with the 2017 line. https://www.e-bikeshop.co.uk/blog/post/haibike-xduro-bosch-ebike-range-2016/ If anyone has a better guide, please...

    Want a comparo of Haibike models to decipher features vs pricing

    I have watched Court's youtube reviews for a couple of years before focusing on Haibike as the brand to buy. Problem is I still have not deciphered their feature-laden product line. For example, Haibike XDURO Pro is an 11speed with an extra large ring for climbing vs 10 speed XDURO Nduro RX...
