    I understand that you have a job to do. However, I think you are putting your job above the law and the safety of others. So, when a cyclist smashes into the back of your truck that is illegally...

    One practical reason might be that not every bike frame will accommodate 28mm tires. If you put 28's on these bikes... you better enjoy walking.

    The main factor for me would be the road surface conditions. Fortunately, my commute has excellent surface conditions. 90 percent of my commute is on a well maintained MUP. The "road" parts of the...

    I recently went through a similar situation. (Maybe you have read some of my posts in previous threads.) For ease of installation, probably a front hub motor is your best choice. I think you're...

    I have a carbon fiber synapse. I don't know how differently that rides in comparison to an alloy frame... but, I've been extremely happy with my synapse. The trek domane looks like an excellent...

    Great bike! It's gotta be a joy to ride it. I hope it gets more time on the road than just commuting.

    I think I'm done optimizing this one. Latest addition - 350 Watt Bionx electric conversion... this is now my ultimate commuter.

    Thanks ezbikin. I'll be ecstatic if I have an experience similar to yours. I don't have the throttle hooked up to my system. I'm loving the pedal assist feature. I find myself in level 0 or 1...

    Wow! This has been quite an adventure for you. I wish it were working the way you wanted. I opted to go with a 350W direct drive hub from bionx. I'm loving it! What I love most is that the motor...

    Yep, this makes hills disappear. Just for the heck of it, I found one of the steeper hills in the area to climb... something I probably wouldn't try on a regular bike. It's 1/4 of mile and rises...

    I think part of the problem with installing a throttle on my bars is that they are not standard drop bars. They are "ergonomic" bars that are made of some wider tubing and they are flatter than they...

    Ebike store. They are off exit 304, about 3 blocks east of I-5 on Rosa Parks Ave. Owner is Wakefield Gregg and he is the coolest guy ever to talk to about ebikes (and a lot of other things.)

    I'm thinking that if you are a pretty decent wrench, you could do it yourself on a flat bar bike. The drop bars did present some problems and when I talked to the authorized dealer in Portland he...

    Pedal assist is exactly as you described it. However, the bionx system and torque sensor are the best that I have ever tried. I don't think of it as having to reach a "threshold" for the motor to...

    a mountain bike/road bike is called a cyclocross bike, right? That's the type of bike I would start with. Someone suggested a Surly Crosscheck... that's the type of bike you want before you worry...
