    Suspension vs. Bigger Tires

    Hey All, I'm sure we'll see a wide range of opinions on this, but I am shopping around for my first ebike where the primary use is a 20 mile one way commute on city streets (with some short cuts across bike paths and sidewalks at appropriate speeds).

    My wife and I just moved back to Brooklyn in October from San Francisco. I work in Midtown Manhattan, so hacking my commute has been my top priority since we got here. I know that throttle bikes are illegal in NYC (pedal assist bikes are not illegal), but I decided to roll the dice anyway. I...
