    E-bike wire snapped and now have an error 30. Engwe x20

    Ageed. The post seemed a bit 'disjointed', (confusing) plus being a new poster. Not a strong combination to solicit help.

    E-bike wire snapped and now have an error 30. Engwe x20

    There way 'too much going on ' here.... For starters, if any real manufacturer contact info is available, there will be no 'Customer Support' . Second. if the bike works meaning, the motor provides assist as it should, that's huge. Forget about the lack of the throttle unless, do to your...

    TREK Powerfly 9.7 Lt Chain ring options

    Hey Dave, Great to hear from you. I can't believe I missed your post. Us Trek XM 700 guys have to stick together, there's so few of us... : ) I was unable to physically check my front ring, but will do so tomorrow, Tuesday. In the mean time the Trek XM 700 Specs call for a 20 T ring. John

    Help me select a bike please

    Perhaps I could have done a better job explaining. Simply stated...A QuietKat Jeep type vehicle is in my view an e-Motorcycle, and it should called what I believe it and others like it are. The QK Jeep has a massive 1000W Motor with 160 NM of torque, weighs 75 pounds plus all of the other...

    Help me select a bike please

    Howdy, I checked out the QuietKat Jeep on QuietKats web site. It looks like a ton of fun... The 'Jeep' seems like a very well thought out, well designed 'e-motorcycle.' In my view this is not an e-bike. Not specifically picking on this product, there are many, but I really wish these...

    Cyclist husband that I'm looking to keep up with-- help choosing!

    Hello Herc, You wrote..... "I'd prefer to keep it under 2k, and truly the cheaper the better as I am having a hard time convincing myself it is ok to spend money on this" I'm here to take you out of that mindset : ) If you have the financial means I would push the 2k number to 3k minimum...

    Hello LPB, Welcome to EBR check in often. You mentioned you'll be purchasing your first e-Bike. If I may share my story with the sole purpose of offering encouragement. Six year ago I was in the exact same situation you're in.... I didn't know an e-bike from a pound of cheese. I rode a Trek...

    Electric scooter trend?

    Hello All, I'm curious if anyone has knowledge of the type of 'average' injury ( if there is such a thing) one might experience from a scooter crash ridden at 'speed' aka 20,30 40 + mph. I'm assuming death is in the mix of crashes ? The laws of physics seem to rule against the rider...

    First Five Rides + a Fall - Turbo Turbo Tero 6.0 X

    Many times the decision is split sec Go, No go and typically 'we' opt for Go. We've all done it, Once I got past the reluctance to opt for the safer way It was very easy the next time trouble popped up. I'm not lecturing, but we tend to underestimate falls...Look at me. I was barely...
