It's Electric! A thread for e-bike things.

i know of one. not sure about any others

I’m your huckleberry. Well, one of the other huckleberries.

I have scant prior ebike experience, but I will say these ride real nice. It’s interesting to contrast with the higher-powered rentals I’ve tried, that seemed like they might be trying to kill me. I can look at all the battery and motor stats, but that doesn’t communicate how important a smooth power delivery and especially the transitions from coasting to pedalling are to how fun the bike is to ride, and how confident I feel on it.

I only have rear hub version at my location, but a mid drive should arrive in the near future.

I’m very excited to try this bike and also to sell a lot of them to make a lot of money for tarckers and myself :smiling_imp:

I have to say, one of the biggest disappointments of putting together an E-kit is that I really liked it and now I see all these other sweet e-bikes that I’m assuming aren’t quite as janky lol

Really love the xtracycle with the Bosch drive. Interested to try some other motor makers.

I dig my conversion, but probably would just consume a Tern ebike if it needed to be replaced.

Definitely have that on my steel bikes that have used the bbshd. Not sure if it is just paint or steel is also imprinted.

Oh this is the ebike thread

What ebike should I tell my SIL to buy?

She is more Dutch bike than road bike

I have a co-worker who loves and has put a lot of miles on an Electra Townie Go, whatever the 8-speed IGH variant is/was.

Recommended the same to one of my mom’s friends. She liked it on the test ride, but ended up buying a Pedago Interceptor instead (I think because it had a throttle).
