Re: Magicshine GeoManGear

Remember, these lights are sold at a cut rate price in the first place.. If this were a Chinese operation, they'd never recall anything, they'd just keep selling the same product under different names. You still have a working battery, right? No, I do not have a working battery. Replacement batteri...

Magicshine GeoManGear

Last summer I purchased two Magicshine bike lights. The lights worked great but recently the company recalled the batteries d/t potential fires. They asked for patience because they are a "small company and constrained by the cost and supply of new batteries. Replacement batteries will be sent in ph...

Cyclone Motor and Ecospeed

Has anyone had experience with this company? Looking for a non hub motor for max torque. I also checked out Ecospeed. Nice kit but why so expensive-2,300 dollars!

Re: Why do so many people buy e-bikes off ebay?

So many people buy ebikes off ebay because bike shops seldom carry or even want to talk about ebikes. None of the local bike shops in my area carry ebikes and the owners snob anything to do with ebikes! The closest ebike shop in Vermont is 3 hours away in New Hampshire! It's a great shop but it's a ...

Difference between 1 pcs and 3 pcs chain wheel?

I am researching Cyclone kits and can't figure out the difference between 1 pcs and 3 pcs chain wheel kits??? The website lacks a FAQ part and offers only minimum instructions.

Here is the reply from the owner. " Busettii's highest torque bike is the BIG 50 MIle Cruiser and it comes with a 6 speed geared brushless hub motor. Busettii motors are not like other brands. We make all our own batteries and motors. This bike has a 600 watt Dynamic range motor which means it can T...

The website if rather confusing?? Is the Busettii Big 50 hub powered or bracket mounted powered? If hub powered, geared or gearless? Wattage??? The Busetti Vortex looks like it's bracket mounted powered but the website is confusing. Usually bracket mounted bikes have more torque but the Big 50 is re...

Re: Will this bike make me look gay?

You have a point but at least my R 12a is a dark blue. Wish the Zuma was a more neutral color. Regarding my R Martin 12A, it held up well last summer. Logged in over 700 miles over the summer without any issues. This being Vermont, our bike seasons real short. The Martin bike is fine but is one bike...

I'm looking to purchase a second ebike. I need a bike with disc brakes and prefer a step thru design for my aging 200 lb body. I really like the IZIP Zuma but not keen for the bright red "girl" color. Why couldn't IZIP produce a neutral silver color? Will the ZUMA make me look gay? Lets be honest, 5...

Re: a2b discontinued from best buy / Replaced by PiCycle

Is this an urban rumor? I checked the BestBuy website and there is no indication of discontinued prices on A2B bikes. Certainly no half priced bikes.
