    integrated brake and shifter

    My donor bike has the integrated shifter brake setup. This makes it difficult to use the included brake levers with motor cutoff. Can I use these and keep my original brakes?

    Battery for Ebikling 1200w rear motor

    Can anyone recommend a battery for the Ebikling 1200w rear direct drive kit? Not looking for crazy Ah's-something in the 10-12-15 Ah range. The controller is a 30 amp controller if that matters.

    torque klunk when using the throttle

    From day one, I've noticed a torque twist feel in the pedals when I hit the throttle. I can feel something "twisting" like it is taking up some space before the power is transferred to the chain. Is this normal for a mid-drive? Something loose? I contacted customer support and they said this is...

    Truck bed rack problem solved

    background....I live in Mn and want to bike all winter, but we use a ton of salt on the roads. I have a Yakima Hold up 2 hitch rack for the summer, but REALLY wanted to get the bike in the bed for the winter to avoid all the salty road spray on the bike. Did a lot of trial and error stuff and...

    Donor bike for rear hub motor

    I want to build my own this time around. I bought a Giant Rincon off Fleabay but I didn't notice it was 24 gears until I hit the BUY button. I'm looking at an Ebikling kit and they come with the 21 speed cassette. Am I going to have an issue dropping the kit wheel with 7 gears on the cassette...

    What is a good wheelset for gravel/tar paths to swap into the Classic? The scenario is; during he summer I ride mostly gravel trails. In the fall it's full on off-road through the woods. So I'm thinking of running something more narrow in the summer then putting the big fatties back on in the...

    BigStone c300s controller

    My wife has an Emojo bike with a BigStone c300s display. When you use the throttle you only get power based on what petal assist level you are in. In other words, to get full throttle you need to be in Level 5, annoying if you want to get through an intersection from a stop and in a low PAS...

    Help an old fat fart find a bike!

    I'm 59 and want to get back into biking. I loved mountain biking back before life happened. So I'm looking at an ebike to get back into light off roading and tar trail riding. I've gone down the rabbit hole and have research fatigue. I know i need to actually ride some but shops around here...
