Happened to me two or three times over the years when I got a slice in the tire that the sealant wouldn't stop. Main thing is to put something between the tube and inside of the tire (like a Powerbar...

Agree '86 or '87 and great bikes IMO (I have an earlier but very similar model with cantilever brakes). AFAIK, made in Japan which is a big plus to me (mine had a sticker stating that, but was a...

Revel Propulsion

Revel Propulsion, a company in OR, has a DIY mid-drive with a bottom bracket incorporating a torque sensor. I procured a kit and it is designed and executed masterfully. The motor/controller, display...

Had no idea your tires were that wide, but your idea about 29er rims is sound. Build the "fattest" system that your forks can accommodate. Also, they're producing "enduro" wheels that are stronger...

Great to hear that ebikes have provided motivation and mobility (probably lots of other benefits) to individuals. However, I'm much more exhausted after riding my MTB than eMTB. It's my fault for not...

AIR, the High Sierra was made in Japan and a relatively high-quality bike. Mine (with a 1500w electric system) has a combined TIG and Filet-brazed frame. I've had good luck with Altus-level rear...

AFAIK, anything from 20% - 80% is fine although 50% may be optimum. I've had good success for four years with a 52V, 10 ah battery by charging to 100% just before riding then leaving it wherever its...

Haven't needed a dishing stand since it's easy to install the wheel and set the truing "nodules", then swap the wheel and recheck; works surprisingly well if a little archaic. Over the years I've...

I have a knock off of that stand and it works fine. AIR, since it's "old school", can't remember if it's for 29" wheels, but I'm focused on 26' now. Built and/or trued lots of wheels with it.

You have 10 posts.

A lot depends on where you reside. In the "OC", roads are good, so IMO no reason for fat tires (unless you're styling). There may be places with poor road conditions where the...

Great price on the Raleigh; interesting to see how you like it long term since it has the TransX motor AFAIK.

I had a 350w geared motor; slight warning: be prepared to pedal if there are relatively steep ascents on your route. Haven't tried a 500w direct drive motor, but the DIY 1000w scrambles up hills...

For comfort, a commuter style, which is more upright, should suffice (you might even be able to modify her bike). Since e-bikes are popular in the EU, you should be able to locate good dealers for...

Electra, division of Trek, has nicely adorned and expensive cruisers, so if price is no object, that's what I would choose (although I've seen, but never ridden one). For much less expensive, but...
