Hi, I'm Hong from Karmic!

It looks like things have changed quite a bit since I was here last year. Since the Karmic Bikes forum is no longer around, I thought I'd just say Hi and (re)introduce myself.

Karmic is known for our Koben and Koben S ebikes which use the Max mid-drive system. We just launched our second Kickstarter campaign yesterday. The new model is made for women, or men who want a lower step over height. We call it the Kyoto, and it is a Shimano STEPs system with the new SLX 11-speed drivetrain.

You can read more about it here:


Happy to answer any questions folks might have. I'm in SF tmrw, but will check back in here in the evening.
