    Why aren't there any reviews on ZEV electric bicyles?

    Good points, they could also do a better job at making the specs easier to understand (such as a chart).

    Tires with Mr. tuffies and kevlar lining inside.

    Why aren't there any reviews on ZEV electric bicyles?

    Yeah, and they don't list the location of their dealers online. You have to call to find out.

    Hi Court, I was looking for a review on ZEV harpie or ZEV valkyrie e-bikes. Their website says that ZEV has been around for a long time and that their e-bikes are very similar to stromer st2 only much less money. Have you considered doing a review on ZEV bikes?

    Why aren't there any reviews on ZEV electric bicyles?

    I have been considering purchasing a ZEV harpie or a ZEV valkrie electric bicycle and though have not seen any reviews from EBR on ZEV. It appears that ZEV bikes are comparable to Stromer ST2 only MUCH cheaper (about half the price or less to be exact). Would you consider doing a review on a...

    What are your suggestions for winter cycling peace of mind?

    Hello Jack, That book seems to be something worth considering for sure. I'd be pretty disappointed if I followed the book exactly and ended up crashing anyway. So, that thought has brought me to this website in order to get views from multiple cyclists. I may be purchasing that book. We...

    E Joe Epik SE fatal flaw

    Electrical tape conforms to objects when you stretch as your wrapping it so I wonder if you stretch wrap over the frame and over the hole for the charging port during wet weather conditions if it would prevent this issue. Electrical tape seems to remove without much gunk left behind....I'm...

    Optimizing the E-Joe Epik Se

    I also like to know that if the chain eventually starts to pop frequently on a long ride I'll have the option of using only handler mode until I have the time or motivation to get the chain repaired when I feel like it.

    Optimizing the E-Joe Epik Se

    Sounds smart. I like it. Haven't thought of only turning on the handler. I too find electric assist very helpful in safely crossing roads. I like where your going with this!

    What are your suggestions for winter cycling peace of mind?

    Awesome suggestion. I've had a flat and had to call for a ride (rear hub motor + changing flat = time consuming and very frustrating).

    Optimizing the E-Joe Epik Se

    Interesting, I knew that the terrain and PSI were the major contributing factors to pinch flats but your saying that weight does not impact this. Curious, some cyclists deliberately increase the psi in the rear tube simply because there is more weight bearing on the rear tube which may or may...

    Quick release latch issue

    I took your advice and everything is resolved. It simply needed a very small adjustment just as you suggested. Thank you.

    Optimizing the E-Joe Epik Se

    I believe that it was a wise move in taking off the rear rack and was not aware that it weighed well over a pound; wow! The reason I condone your wise decision is because of the flat tire I experienced as a result of a pinched tube that I recently experienced. I did some research and found...

    Quick release latch issue

    I see your issue is mostly resolved as a result of tightening the plastic mechanism. I'll see if i can do the same. Thanks.

    Quick release latch issue

    Thank you Temecularider, I will try to see if I can independently reset the plated round headed capscrew. I'm thinking it may be more of a challenge than it seems but I'll consult a bike shop if it comes to that. The metal clamp on mine also has some "play" and it seems as if the plastic...

    Quick release latch issue

    Yes RR, it appears you and I have share a similar experience with the quick release locking mechanism for the battery frame. Do you think an ordinary bike shop would know how to repair this? It would be nice to be able to fix this independently, though I would be willing to throw myself to the...

    Quick release latch issue

    Has anyone experienced an issue with the quick release latch on the ejoe epik se 2015 frame? After 2 rides, the medal clamp does not lock. The plastic locking mechanism secures the clamp slightly, though I am afraid that that plastic does not appear very durable and may not hold the clamp...
