    Maintenance costs

    This reminds me of opening a new thread about which tools and parts do I need for commuting (taxi's won't be an option where I commute). I'll need to be self-sufficient as much as possible.

    Maintenance costs

    Using your numbers and using a higher threshold of 3000 miles/year and converting to Canadian dollars and prices, I get an approximate annual cost of 1250$ CAD. Not bad! (I initially budgeted more along the lines of 700$/year though, but I wasn't including the motor and battery replacement...)...

    Maintenance costs

    Hello! I'm researching approximate figures for maintenance cost for commuting with an ebike. So far I've only found anecdotal estimates. I would be interested to hear from people commuting with an ebike for multiple years. My commute is 40 miles roundtrip, 3 days/week from April to October...

    Admitted Faulty Product Design

    Reading this thread reminds me how we are lucky to have a "legal warranty" on purchased merchandises in Québec. It basically stipulates that goods have a warranty that covers a "reasonable amount of time given the price paid". Hence, a TV that cost 4000$ should last longer than one that cost...

    Quick-E+

    Thanks for your answers! Maybe I should look at more powerful ebike motor if I want to do my 64km daily commute... !

    Quick-E+

    Hello! I'm wondering about the power of the 28mph version of the Quick-E+. Are you able to maintain 28mph for, say, 10-12km? Or is the 28mph assist is more for punctual needs? I'm wondering if I need a stronger ebike motor for my need or if the PW-X or PW-X2 is enough. Thanks for any infos!

    25km/h? 32? 45? 60? What speed do you *actually* want on your e-bike?

    25km/h? 32? 45? 60? What speed do you *actually* want on your e-bike?

    Hello! How the performance of the E8000 over 32km/h? Can you really sustain a 40-45km/h with this motor? just wondering because I haven't found a "class 3" bike with the E-8000 motor. Thanks!

    Quick-E+

    If anyone wants a 2019 Quick e+ in Canada, there's a good deal here: (Link Removed - No Longer Exists) I decided to wait for next september and see the 2021models!

    2020 Giant E-Bike Models and Photos

    Right now, I have nothing! I'm shopping. From what I gathered, its clear I'm gonna need the range extender (625Wh total). Thats gonna be enough I think. Worst case scenario is to charge at work. So, while I'd like a solution for the complete 40miles commute, its OK if I manage only 25miles (that...

    2020 Road-E+ Pros

    Thanks for the quote about the Range Extender. Bit expansive though. For a 250Wh, I would have hoped/expected a price closer to 500$ (they 500Wh battery replacement is about 1100$ Cad).

    Fastroad E+ EX PRO

    Let me know how it goes with the BikeSpeed RS! Pretty sure 2019 models won't be available next summer though! I might get a glimpse of 2021 models though and will have perhaps more choice. I also would like front suspension but there's no perfect model yet! :/ I guess we pay indirect duty...

    Fastroad E+ EX PRO

    Ah, that's a shame if they leave. I thought they had great models. Even if too expensive, I might have fallen for them in the end! hehe Indeed, can't understand why they reduced battery size. At least, there's the range extender. Not an ideal solution but the whole package (bike + range) is...
