    I live in Vermont - every way to bike is up or down steep hills. I'm looking for a high quality e-bike for road use, touring, and commuting around town. It needs to go on paved and dirt roads but not rough off-road terrain. I would like the bike to be comfortable; I'm not a racer so no need...

    My first Hill Topper was my first ev

    I had a good bike siting in the backyard so to get my fist eBike going was not very expensive. I did have to change out my forks but that allowed me to repack the front end too. After the fist ride I decided to referb the entire bike. The total weight is 35 lb with the "sprinter" battery. The...

    Is there any interest in a quality 30 pound electric bike, for a good price?

    I have a great bike (that someone here likes a lot) for a good price, so it should sell. Every time I ride one of the bikes people comment positively.
