    Battery Cost: $1,299

    Thanks for checking in. If it were just this thread, I'd have never mentioned it. I hope you'll just keep an eye on things and see if there isn't a general trend of non-productive, non-informative, knee-jerk JB-bashing. And if there is, I don't know what the solution might be. That's up to the mods.

    Battery Cost: $1,299

    I don't follow any other brands but Juiced. And I read the General Discussion forum. That's it. So that explains the lack of involvement elsewhere.

    Battery Cost: $1,299

    It's not. It's just bashing. Over and over. I'm not asking for censorship. You made that up. I'm saying this subforum has gotten sick and needs attention from the mods.

    Y'all don't know as much about publishing as you like to think you do. Not just Handlebars, all y'all. It's a good example of something that is high-priced, for which there are legitimate reasons. Are some textbooks high-priced for illegitimate reasons? No doubt. Not all, not by a stretch. The...

    Elektrek Ebike of the Year: HyperScorpion

    So you believe. But you state it as actual fact. That's the part that I'm disagreeing with. State your preference all you want. State your opinion all you want. But call it that. Will you have the honesty to say "I was wrong" if, a couple of years down the line, moped-style bikes are accepted...

    Maybe it is a rip-off. I'm not so sure. Seems more like the law of supply and demand to me. Juiced Bikes is not trying to be an accessory/spare parts company. They carry some accessories and spare parts for our convenience. Keeping items in stock and processing sales/shipping is an expense for...

    Juggernaut tractor

    I drool over the Burley Travoy and would like to justify the $300 price tag. I'm sure you've looked at that one, too.

    Elektrek Ebike of the Year: HyperScorpion

    Well, people always need time to get used to something new. This kind of moped-style ebike (and Tora is upfront about evoking a 70s moped vibe when designing this bike) was nowhere to be seen when I started my ebike journey back in 2013. A couple of years from now, they will be ubiquitous and no...

    Elektrek Ebike of the Year: HyperScorpion

    Having grown up on Super Cubs, it doesn't look like one to me. Superficial similarities, I guess. Micah Toll just did a review on Electrek of an electric scooter (no pedals) that really does look a lot like a Super Cub.

    Elektrek Ebike of the Year: HyperScorpion

    I haven't had any attention from law enforcement yet. I live in a town of around 25,000. I wave, they wave. I really don't know if it's because I pedal pretty much all the time. Maybe if I was jetting around at max speed on throttle-only they'd look closer. But so far, no hassle. It really...

    Elektrek Ebike of the Year: HyperScorpion

    The longest ride I've taken on this bike so far (I've had it for about two months) is 20 miles. Average speed on that ride was 15.32 mph. That's a typical speed for Bonnie and I on recreational rides. Faster in the summer, to get more wind chill. The battery went down from 58.0 V to 51.7 V...

    Elektrek Ebike of the Year: HyperScorpion

    Are you speaking from experience? Do you own one? I do. I pedal all the time. The pedals are not for show. I rarely use the throttle. I ride it the same as I did my old CCS -- pedaling most of the time, using throttle occasionally for specific purposes. (Just posted a thread on using the...

    Throttle and PAS on Scorpion/HyperScorpion

    For both the Scorpion and the HyperScorpion, I've found that there's a way to split the difference between wattage used from one PAS level to the next. Let's say you're on PAS 1. If you go to PAS 2, it may be more assistance than you need (if you like actually pedaling, as I do.) But you want a...

    Frame Warranty Now *1 Year* - Formerly Lifetime

    Wouldja look at that. I'm surprised. Didn't think that would change. I can only speculate as to why it did.

    HyperScorpion display: screws and then some

    I'll have to look at the display on my HS. Sometime tomorrow. It's dark out now. :cool:

    CCX log after 2 years & 15,000+ miles & melted connectors today.

    Can't agree with this, Asher. While the "mopeds" are great fun for tooling around on, they also make an awesome bike for commuting and errands. Just not long commutes like @Chris Hammond. Thinking about @youth's commute, 32 miles round trip -- you could definitely do the 16 miles on the...

    CCX log after 2 years & 15,000+ miles & melted connectors today.

    Lots of great discussion from a bunch of JB commuter bike veterans. Thank you all for commenting! I think we've all pretty much arrived at the same viewpoint on the CCS/CCX. I've got to say, I totally love my HyperScorpion. It is perfect for what I need at this point: light commuting, errands...

    CCX log after 2 years & 15,000+ miles & melted connectors today.

    Youth, it looks to me like you've had some arcing in there, probably due to a loose connection, unless it was slightly misaligned from the get-go. I didn't read all the way through your (excellent) log to see if there were signs of a growing connection problem. The only fix I know of is to...
