Hi. New here. Found a lot of information that helped me narrow my choices. I mostly use my bike to go to work (10km one way). But I also want to be able do go on gravel roads with my family and a little bit of wood trails. I had a mountain bike with a BionX system but it failed me (was really old). Even if I don't really need it, I want to try a fat bike for the sheer fun of it. So I narrowed it to the Yukon 750 limited and the ET.Cycle T1000. If I buy the Yukon, I will get the extra strong battery (19.5 Ah). The price difference between the two models is 100$ (which is not quite a big difference).

I would tend to go with the Yukon since it is an all canadian bike compared to the ET.Cycle from Leon cycle which is German. One thing that worries me is, even if Volt is a good company, they seem to be a little bit overwhelmed a the present time and that could lead to quality and support problem. On the other hand, since the T1000 is quite new, I couldn't get any reviews about it. Any thoughts to help me?

Thanks a lot

I think if you're worried about after support (beyond warranty period), I think VoltBike would be better because Chinese ebikes are more common, it is much better to find parts.
Daskit bikes are a lot more rare than Bafang ebikes.
Although I am not sure if you would actually have problems obtaining parts when something goes wrong, Daskit is a lot more rare.
You can't just go on AliExpress and have parts ready to go for you.
However, something to keep in mind is that VoltBike does take a long time to ship. Even before pandemic, they have been taking over 2 months to deliver bikes.
That said, I know one person who received the VoltBike in less than 2 weeks (during pandemic), so I guess it all depends?
