Not sure if i ever posted here. I do regularly talk crap about certain vendors in the past. Now it's time to give props.
1) Cell man / emissions-free
- put up with my endless questions via email, always had my back with support issues & replacement parts, knows his products in and out ( he's the engineering type ), offers great prices & good stuff, and is very flexible with shipping types/costs as well. >5 orders with this guy now.
2) Ken / itselectric.ca
- always willing to chat a little pre-sale and make sure you're getting the right thing. Real helpful to the community, and decent prices too.
3) Gary / Golden Motor Canada
- was straight up with me when i called him and said i was from ES and quizzed him on the phone about the new Magic pie 3 and other stuff before he had even announced it. Even answered the phone on a hockey day - that's dedication. I know he had some dirt dumped on him, so did Golden Motor China, but i wanted to particularly throw him props for selling the external magic pie motor, which is very underrated.
4) ( i forget his name ) / FalconEV
- though i read a bunch of mud slinging on ES about this guy, he was an interesting guy to talk on the phone with, like Ken, interested in making sure you get the best thing possible. The FalconEV bag he sells is my favorite eBike purchase of all time. He also sells a motor that is supposedly quicker than the Crystalyte 5xxx but never got any airtime on here. The guy needs to get his web site in order, but i give him the thumbs up for our dealings over the phone.
5) Lyen / Lyen.com
- Very helpful & extremely fast to ship things out. Even covered a DC-DC under warranty and paid the shipping.
- Holy crap, according to their system i have had 15 orders with them. They seriously haven ever let me down, other than the very typical RC lipo dud rate ( about 10% of the packs will have a funky cell ).
- my favorite local alternative to hobbyking. Fast shipment, and great stuff for sale. Sureelectronics
- for selling legit meanwells on eBay at a good price.. quick shipping too.
