Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the forums and Court was kind enough to set up this specific forum for Karmic Bikes. I want to be clear that we are *NOT* Zero Motorcycles, or NTS Works, but we are working with Neal Saiki who was/is the Founder of both of those companies.

Karmic Bikes is a startup based in Palo Alto working hard to bring electric bikes to more people. We're just starting to do demos of our prototypes, so if anyone in the SF Bay Area wants to go for a test ride, please let me know.

I'm here to learn from, and contribute to, the Electric Bike Review community and hope we can be helpful to everyone here.

Cheers,
Hong

Hong,
I live in Redwood City. Where are you located? Where can I find a description of your bikes?

Hi Hong, welcome! Liking your measured approach to all this. Development, testing, testing, testing and more R&D along with more testing... Than product introduction and did I mention R&D and testing? And than sales. You won't get rich on the sale of a few thousand bikes but you will make a living on good products and long term relationships! Good luck for the future of Karmic.

Mike,

Didn't realize we're neighbors! I'm in Palo Alto, you should come try out the bike sometime. We are in late-stage prototyping, so the production spec is still being tweaked with feedback from test riders. Your input and feedback would be much appreciated!

J.R.,

Thanks for the warm welcome! We're veteran startup folks, so we know it's a long road. While other ebike projects have gotten overnight success, we're taking a deliberate approach to product development and launch because we feel that's the best way.

Cheers,
Hong

Certainly. I look forward to trying your bikes.
