    Haibike Sduro Hardseven 6.0 2017 vs Specialized Turbo Como 2.0 2017

    Hahah! :P Do I seem ashamed of my "disease"? I don't need to hide behind the friend! I wish his wife was mine. Wife acquisition Syndrome might be in order. I have always have been a fan of "stealth" bikes. I would never pick the Hardseven :P but I agree with you. It might be more versatile...

    Haibike Sduro Hardseven 6.0 2017 vs Specialized Turbo Como 2.0 2017

    When we were talking to the shop owner about the Urban plus model, he spoke very unfavorably about the TranzX motor like it was riddled with problems.

    Haibike Sduro Hardseven 6.0 2017 vs Specialized Turbo Como 2.0 2017

    The shop didn't have the Urban plus and he is adamant on not buying things he can't test ride on. Yeah it's $1699. Probably the greatest commuter bike steal on the market right now. The shop owner is only interested in bringing in an urban plus if you put a deposit on it.

    Haibike Sduro Hardseven 6.0 2017 vs Specialized Turbo Como 2.0 2017

    The ebike industry should give me commission! This would be the 5th person I have convinced to go the ebike way! So my new co-worker, I took him to a local bike shop yesterday and he rode a whole bunch of bikes and the two that he really like the most - they couldn't be more different! Haibike...

    Thinking about importing a Deskinio Urban from the UK!

    You expressed my feelings perfectly! :D No gears, no maintenance, take it off the bus rack and go explore the city and nobody would give you a second look! I really like this idea :D What makes these bikes "hipster bikes"? I'm trying to understand. You speak the truth but as time goes by, I...

    Thinking about importing a Deskinio Urban from the UK!

    https://electricbikereview.com/desiknio/single-speed-urban/ $4500 for a single speed bike seems Crazy in my mind but then again, I ignore my mind routinely. I was wondering if it's possible to get a conversation going about the commuter worthiness of such a bike. The idea of an extremely...

    Haibike Urban Plus 2017 - The most exciting Urban E-bike!

    wow. I have been wondering why I'm seeing such "cheap" prices for Haibike models everywhere. Thanks for the info. So there is "nothing wrong" with the Urban plus model other than bluetooth connectivity issues with certain phones? It's an amazing steal at $1,699 then!

    Thanks Nova and JR I saw that bike from Bike24 and imagine my disappointment when I realized they dont ship here!! I will ask the seller to go down on the price. Any tips on how much lower should I ask for? I would also ask about the battery

    Stop me from spending $4500 on a 2015 model please!

    So im determined to get a bike with a middrive and Nuvinci Hsync automatic shifting system. I love the idea of setting my preferred cadeance speed and letting the bike handle the rest, There is only one model that I like look wise and thats the Cube SUV hybrid 27.5. I love the 2.4 fatter tires...

    Stealth looking Ebike with throttle?

    https://emotionbikesusa.com/evo-cross-pro/ Thank you!! She likes the looks of the evo cross pro even more. It even comes in a small size which seems rare for BHbikes. She has no dealers near her. Any recommendations for a reliable online retailer for the newer models?

    Stealth looking Ebike with throttle?

    Hello EBR, Im seeking an electric bike for my aunt. She is 5'5, petite. She wants an electric bike with throttle. Judging by our talks, i think she would prefer a stealthier route. Budget is 4K. Any suggestions?

    Everyone tells me the Pedego 24" Trail tacker is expensive but they can't tell me an alternative!

    Everyone tells me the $2,900 Pedego 24" Trail Tacker is too expensive for what it is but they can't tell me an alternative to compete with this bike. 24" Fat Bike. Throttle Override at any level Integrated battery. https://electricbikereview.com/pedego/24-trail-tracker/ What other bike in...

    Help my Uncle customize a Ariel Rider N Class Cruiser!

    YES! I showed it to him and he laughed for a solid 30 seconds. Did Ariel Riders used to have mid drives last year? Their website says "Innovative Japanese motor technology provides 48 /35 Nm (Newton meters) of torque in 500/250 W motors. Our vintage electric bikes can reach the maximum speed...

    My first Crash Report :D

    Thanks for reminding me about the wheel. Yep. EBR folks made me buy a helmet few weeks ago. I saw scrape marks on the helmet. Nothing on the head. I even made a thread saying I hate wearing helmets. Funny how that worked out :D

    Help my Uncle customize a Ariel Rider N Class Cruiser!

    So I have never heard about this company before. Their facebook page has 2 reviews. I didn't even know there was an EBR review for them until 20 minutes ago. https://electricbikereview.com/ariel-rider/n-class/ My Uncle somehow found them online searching for "motorcycle" style cruisers. So the...

    My first Crash Report :D

    I'm glad you are still here with us. I had a backpack too that cushioned the fall but most of the impact was on the ankle and knees. Very sore. :D I ordered the G-Form Pads by the way. Thanks :D

    My first Crash Report :D

    So crashed my bike today. I took my hand of the handlebar and I braked and I'm not sure what happened next. I landed on my ankle and then my knee. Skin off some areas. No broken bones. I feel like my lower spine is completely misaligned. Pain when I make certain movements like bending. :D I...
