Thank you for your positive critique.motomech wrote:I'm really suprised that this post hasn't received more of a response. I looked at the storm when it first was being marketed, but there was some concerns over delivery dates. Looks like everything has worked out for the good.
If I was getting into the sport today, this is the route I would go. Frankly, I have more money in my 2WD mountain bike than the Storm, even the up-dated version.
One thing worth noting about this picture is, this is not some kind of factory backed get together. These are all individual owners getting together to ride.BruceTS wrote:This is the Perfect Storm....... Last Saturdays small get together....

What derailleur and shifter did you use when you added the 7-speed?
As long as you don't mind spending $8000, go for it.Chalo wrote:I've seen a few now. They look fine, but then so do Huffys. I wouldn't recommend one to someone who wants a reliable turnkey e-bike to put plenty of miles on. But for occasional recreational use, or someone who likes to tinker, it'll do.
Spend the same amount on a no-nonsense pedal bike, and you'll probably go faster.
I can understand how that would get of old, but every other eBike brand wishes they had that problem. Here in Dallas they aren't that thick. I've only run across about 7 at large in the last year and a half, but that still beats any other single brand.st35326 wrote:My thing is I just don't want the same bike that everyone else has. I can't ride to the store here in SoCal without running into five of these things and the owners all want to have a discussion about it. I thought about getting my 66 year old father who (doesn't really ride) one for his birthday but ended up buying him a Juiced Rider instead.
Thanks chas, it been a strange and exciting journey. Fenders are on my to do list.chas58 wrote:Nice bike theo. Good work in the community too. I remember all of the planning you were doing when this bike was first offered, especially those slow profile tires!. Looks like you have had a ball customizing yours! Now you need one of those little shorty rear fenders (if for nothing else, to keep the slime off the controller).
I'm really impressed that the Storm bikes came out so well - even better than I had imagined! I'm glad it turned out well.
