    New Lectric Xpress

    For one reason or another (e.g., price, weight, customer service), I passed on your list, except for the Turris which is my plan B bike if Lectric doesn't come through the beginning of August. If they start shipping then, I've got a decision to make.

    Guide for setting up skinny tires on lectric xp 2

    The chart you posted has the indexes reversed, so I'm not exactly sure how to use it. However, if I knew the rim inner width, I could read off the recommended tire width. Now if the bike manufacturer used the same chart, then the rim inner width would have to fall within 26 and 30 mm. If the...

    Guide for setting up skinny tires on lectric xp 2

    I've noticed this is the second EBR thread that said only one width sized tire can be used with fat tire wheels. In this case Mr. Towardsdawn replaced both the rim and tire, rather than just the tire. This seems strange to me because I know that non-fat wheels can safely accommodate several...

    My XP Lite theory

    According to the Lectric website, your theory is correct. There is no XP lite listed, but a pre-order for XP Lite 2.0. Long range version $999 and regular $799. The JW long range version even has a belt drive for $1,099. Since you...

    New bike - Turris, a semi off-road touring aka trekking bike - replacement for 500 series?

    This may explain why I had trouble with a previous bike. The fork came installed; but I attached the calipers, then tried to insert the wheel. Thanks for the link. It shows what I referred to as the more involved assembly.

    New bike - Turris, a semi off-road touring aka trekking bike - replacement for 500 series?

    Could you elaborate on the stem. Ride1up's website specs simply say "45mm Ext. 31.8mm Bar Core". From the picture, the stem seems to be a no-adjust threadless stem. I'm looking for an up right riding position where most of the weight is on the saddle, not shoulder and wrists. I'm 6'0" tall...

    90 miles per charge. Too good to be true?

    Yep, I am starting to look at the prodigy. I did email Young Electric and asked about the 90 mile range. They responded almost immediately saying Does this make sense? It's above my pay grade. They also responded Responding immediately to a sales question doesn't imply the same concern...

    New Lectric Xpress

    It's something like that. I'm a snow bird; and in the Fall I head to Florida by train without the bike (I have one there). Also, I'm 82 so I don't know how many more active Summers I will have. Yes, I have a backup plan. That is cancel the Lectric and go with another one. I've done a lot of...

    New Lectric Xpress

    How reliable is Lectric? I pre-ordered the upgraded xpress back in April with the understanding that it would ship in June. Come June and I got an email saying it would ship in July with no explanation at all. At the end of July will I get an email saying it will ship in August? I see that...

    90 miles per charge. Too good to be true?

    Thanks all for your insights. Since there are almost no reviews for this bike, I think I will move on to two more I've been looking at. Ride1up Turris $1095 Jaison EB5 Roamer ST $819 Yes, I know I was planning on moving up the food chain with this purchase. But the Jaison punched all the...

    90 miles per charge. Too good to be true?

    Is it customary for an ebike seller to quote range based on 6-8 mph? I would think that the PAS level 1 speed was the norm. The Young Electric website didn't mention PAS levels and mph.

    90 miles per charge. Too good to be true?

    One of the brands in the "Brand & User Reviews" (virtual) subforum is eFlow. I believe eFlow or e-Flow is actually an ebike model produced by the brand "Young Electric". This confused me when I was trying to find information about eFlow, but should have been looking for Young Electric. Now my...
