Hi Everyone,

I am looking to buy my first e-bike and have narrowed it down to NCM Moscow and Ride1up 500 Series. Both looks good so looking some help to decide which one to go for if I am planning to buy a new e-bike.

I am also wondering if it's worth it to even think about building my own by buying a brand like Trek Dual Sport 3/4 and then installing the front/rear ebikeling kit.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I had never heard of Ebikeling kit so I did my research.

They sell lots of products, which one exactly are you talking about?

If you're building a kit, start with one motor, unless you're skilled electrically, but the NCM seems like a nice bike, and you won't be able to match the buy vs build cost, unless you go for a sketchy battery.

Unless he has fixed the oversight/flaw/blunder, the ebikeling geared motor LCD kits use a controller that doesn't have a speed sensor, so odometer/speedometer don't work when motor is coasting. I asked a recent ebikeling user this year about that, and it's still a bug. If you're buying the 1000+W direct drive motor. this is not an issue, but it's a different kind of ride.

I started with an ebikeling 500W geared motor six years ago, That motor still runs great. I also built a dual drive using his geared 500W motor on the front of my fat tire bike, and have a third ebike that I gave away using the geared 500W rear motor.
