    How to make an eBike (DIY)
    Auto DIY



    Published on May 19, 2015
    If you are looking for the parts and tools list, please visit:
    http://EpowerMyBike.com

    This video is a detailed overview of how to convert a bicycle to an electric bike (eBike). The motor in this demonstration is a 750W Bafang 8Fun BBS02 Mid drive system with a 48v 9AH Samsung lithium Ion battery pack. The process is the same for any Bafang mid drive, including the BBS01, or BBSHD. Happy riding.

    Purpose built eBikes are great, but expensive, and the mid drives are also generally 36v 350w systems. This motor and battery can be had for about a thousand dollars and installed on almost any existing bike. Plus you can max out the legal limit and get a 48v 750w more powerful system. Making your rides as easy or tough as you want, this is great for commuting or just exercising. When you let it assist you, it makes you feel incredibly strong, and it will get you out and enjoying riding.

    IZIP E3 Dash Video Review - High-Speed Urban Commuter Electric Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on May 25, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/izip/e... The 2017 IZIP E3 Dash is a value-priced urban electric bike that includes fenders, integrated LED lights, a rear rack, and hydraulic disc brakes, it's available in three frame sizes but only high-step. This is a high-speed Class 3 ebike that can reach ~28 mph assisted and because it relies on a cadence sensor, you don't have to push as hard to get there, excellent weight distribution. Custom frame with internally routed cables and a bottle cage mounting point, turning the bike on and off requires extra steps, the display panel is not removable. Only one color choice but the silver looks cool and keeps you visible at night, the cadence sensing motor does not have shift sensing and the brake levers don't have motor inhibitors.

    Haibike XDURO FullSeven Carbon Ultimate Video Review - Light Carbon Fiber Electric Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on May 27, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/haibik... The Haibike XDURO FullSeven Carbon Ultimate is a 2016 version of what is now called the FullSeven Carbon 10.0. This is a high-performance electric mountain bike available in four frame sizes, stiff carbon frame for improved power transfer and handling, carbon accents include seat post, saddle, handlebar, wheelset and more. Eleven speed Shimano Deore XTR drivetrain with Di2 electronic shifting for faster, more precise gear changes and reduced chain wear, the Bosch motor controller is also designed to reduce mashing. Beautifully integrated motor and battery pack, the weight is kept low and center, shielding is minimalist but effective, unique Sprocket Equalizing System raises the chain and reduces kickback. Prohibitively expensive at ~$16k, the weight is low compared to most other ebikes I have reviewed but it wasn't as light as I expected at ~42.5 lbs, the wheelset may only accommodate up to ~209 lbs riders.

    Raleigh Detour iE Video Review - Comfortable Commuter E-Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Jun 3, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/ The Raleigh Detour iE is a classy, comfortable, lightweight city ebike available in high-step and step-thru frame styles, choose from light blue or black, and three sizes. Swept-back handlebar, ergonomic grips, comfort saddle, fenders, and a combination chain guide plus cover offer a lot of utility for commuters. The Shimano STePs mid-drive is efficient, compact, and well balanced, it uses an advanced sensor for smooth starts and stops and is easier on the drivetrain. You get nine speeds for comfortable pedaling (climbing or cruising up to 20 mph), removable battery, and a removable display panel, the charger is relatively fast but uses an adapter which can be misplaced and lost more easily.

    Pedego 24" Trail Tracker Video Review - A Slightly Smaller Fat Tire Ebike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Jun 14, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/pedego... The Pedego 24" Trail Tracker is one of the only 24" sized fat e-bikes I have ever seen, it's easier to approach, stand over, and handle for short to mid-sized riders, Pedego also offers a 20" fat model for kids. Large comfortable tires that work well on sand or snow when deflated to 5-8 PSI, an integrated aimable headlight keeps you visible and lights the way, pedal assist and throttle operation. Large 180 mm mechanical disc brakes with tool-free adjustable calipers, motor inhibitors, and an integrated bell, updated frame design with shorter wheelbase improves handling. Fairly expensive but you get a large network of dealers for in-person support, heavy but powerful and well balanced, the bike comes with an extra fuse, touch up paint, and a quick 3 Amp charger.

    17Ah 36V Ebike Battery Range Test
    E-Bike Commuter



    Published on Jun 20, 2017
    Follow us on our mini bike tour to a children´s summer camp. We ride a Larry vs Harry Bullitt cargo bike and also have a BOB Yak trailer fully loaded. I estimate total weight of our bike, passengers and cargo was a total of 180kg.

    I am running my 250W front hub motor and a 17Ah 36V battery on this trip. The total distance to our destination turned out to be 44km. A 17Ah battery will in many cases be marketed as a +100km battery. In this video we will show you how far this battery took us in a real life situation.

    Orbea Katu-E 10 Video Review - Compact Electric Cargo Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Jul 2, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/orbea/... The Orbea Katu-E 10 is a compact electric bike with great cargo-hauling options, the included metal basket is easy to load thanks to a double-leg kickstand and doesn't tip when you steer because it's frame mounted. Low stand-over height and balanced drive system components make the bike feel stable and under control, smaller wheels bring the frame down and provide more strength than large ones. Built to handle wet and dry, bright and dark riding conditions with plastic fenders, a minimalist chainring cover, and high-quality integrated LED lights, the headlight won't get blocked by the basket. There are provisions for adding a rear rack if you need even more storage, the rigid frame and steel fork can feel uncomfortable on bumpy streets but the included 2.25" tires and gel saddle help.

    Trek Neko+ Video Review - Sporty Mid-Step Electric Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Jul 12, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/trek/n... The Trek Dual Neko+ is a sporty hybrid electric bike offering a blend of efficiency and trail capability, suspension fork with lockout, hydraulic disc brakes. Removable battery and display panel reduce weight when lifting and transporting the bike, quick release wheels, locking ergonomic grips. The Shimano STePs mid-drive motor is quiet, smooth, and efficient compared to others in the space, it’s also compact and relatively lightweight. The motor does not offer shift sensing which means the chain, sprockets, and derailleur can take a bit more wear, but the chainring has a guide to reduce drops.

    OHM Urban Video Review - Silent, Fast, Commuter Ebike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Jul 25, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/ohm/ur... The OHM Urban is a near-silent, feature rich, urban hardtail electric bike that's available in four frame sizes and can be switched from Class 2 with throttle to high-speed Class 3. Proprietary torque sensor is integrated into the 12 mm rear-axle, it feels fluid and sporty to pedal with and less finicky than older TMM4 or bottom bracket sensors. OHM overbuilds their bikes so even though this is an urban model, it still has a tapered head tube, 15 mm thru-axle, adjustable air fork, and hollow spindle bottom bracket. The BionX D-Series hub motor is powerful and quick but visually it does stand out more than a compact gearless design, the trigger throttle only activates if the bike is moving.

    Vintage Electric Cafe Video Review - $4k Powerful, Quiet, Stylish Electric Bike
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Aug 14, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/vintag... The Vintage Electric Cafe is one of the most powerful, fastest accelerating, quietest, and beautifully designed electric bikes I have ever tested, premium drivetrain and custom battery. Surprisingly lightweight and well balanced front to rear considering the large 750 watt hub motor, alloy fenders, chain cover, oversized head tube, and thick axles. So much attention to detail here, the upgraded bell, matched saddle and grips, stylized chain ring and pedals, and premium integrated lights by Supernova. The display is not removable and the kickstand can get in the way of the left crank arm when walking the bike around, the motor produces some cogging drag.

    E-Bike Open House Customer Interviews
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Aug 27, 2017
    On August 26th, 2017 I visited the Electric Bicycle Center in Fullerton, California to attend the Ebike Extravaganza event that Sam Townsend puts on (this was the 5th Annual event). During the open house, 9am to 5pm, I met a bunch of visitors and customers who agreed to go on camera and share their thoughts. This video includes some of those informal interviews.

    The first gentleman I spoke with was John and he just wanted to share how happy he was with the 2017 OHM Urban electric bike (which uses a BionX D-Series), we talked about shipping, how much he uses the throttle vs. assist, and how he was enjoying the event. The second person was Greg, and he was comparing a few Haibike models with Bosch drive vs. Yamaha drive systems. He had read and watched reviews but just wanted to try them in person. He explained that the Yamaha motor requires you to shift more frequently in order to stay in the power band. He said that Bosch stayed in power longer but that both felt great and smooth. The third person I spoke with was Rene, who is part of a home brew club and his friends had all started purchasing e-bikes. He explored FLX and then bought a converted KHS bike that uses the e-RAD mid-drive motor. Later in the video I actually saw this bike and spent some more time with Rene. I spoke with one other Haibike customer and then ran into a gentleman named Matt. He had ridden some Easy Motion and Motiv models but was looking for more of the fat tire ebikes. He was interested in M2S bikes, a brand I have not reviewed yet.

    A bit later, I spoke with Charles and his girlfriend about ebikes. She wanted a cute folding electric bike for the $1,000 price range. I took them over to look at e-Joe and we talked about color choices and realized that the bike was a bit heavy and expensive for them so I moved on. Later, I met with Carol who was trying to see what it was like to pedal an unpowered Easy Motion vs. with the motor on. Then, I met with Thomas and Will in the SmartMotion booth and we chatted about a whole range of bikes. He liked the Motiv and Bulls as well but the throttle on the Smart Motion was unique and had him interested. Chris actually came out and spoke to us about SmartMotion and then I went inside to cool off and metup with Matt and Pat to talk about their folding bike search. They ended up with Magnums (the Premium high-power model). Then I connected with Michael Anthony, who has multiple sclerosis (MS) and has had some knee surgeries. He was a professional skier but now uses electric bikes to train and heal. He started his training by duct taping his hurt leg into place on one of the pedals of a stationary bike. He also explained that he chose a full suspension mountain bike because it reduced pressure on his spine and legs. He rides on Bike MS and uses a Bulls electric bike for big events. He needs a smaller frame and keeps the saddle low so he won’t lose balance when mounting and dismounting. Towards the very end of the event, I met a gentleman who had converted a Trek bike to electric using a Lunacycle kit. Sam joined me and we looked at all of the unique customizations. He used Ear Bags to muffle out wind noise while wearing ear buds and riding his bike.

    Trek CrossRip+ Video Review - $4.5k Electric Road Bike, 28 MPH, Gravel Grinder, Touring Platform
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Sep 8, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/trek/c... The Trek CrossRip+ is a lightweight, high speed, electric road bike with sturdy 12 mm thru-axle on the front wheel, Carbon fiber fork, and Alpha 200 Gold alloy frame to dampen vibration. Capable and comfortable on hard packed trails as a gravel grinder, sturdy Aluminum fenders and custom rear rack increase utility and the rack has nubs to retain panniers. Excellent safety features including reflective logos and accents on the frame, reflective tires, and integrated lights with a headlight that can be set to blink, low solid, or bright solid. Bosch Purion display panel is compact but the buttons aren't as easy to click, menu options are limited, the Micro-USB port cannot be used for charging, and it's not removable, the bike comes in five frame sizes but is priced higher.

    Ness Rua Video Review - $1.4k Sturdy Folding Electric Bike, Fenders, Rack, Lights
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Sep 10, 2017
    https://electricbikereview.com/ness/rua/ The Ness Rua is a colorful folding electric bike with sturdy cast rims, strong rear rack, wide alloy fenders, and LED lights, the suspension fork and slightly wider tires improve comfort. The 12-magnet cadence sensor is responsive and doesn't require much effort to activate, just keep the crank arms turning, twist-throttle on demand helps you get going. Decent 160 mm mechanical disc brakes with motor inhibiting levers improve safety, nice bell on the left, plastic chain guide, folding support arm, and steel derailleur guard. Basic 7-speed Shimano Tourney cassette and derailleur gets the job done but uses a larger shifter mechanism that can require more effort, a bit heavy at ~52 lbs, two-step on/off and key must stay in the battery when riding.

    2018 Surface 604 Electric Bike Updates from Interbike (New Boar Hunter, Cheaper Rook & Colt)
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Sep 18, 2017
    For 2018, Surface 604 is launching a brand new fat bike with a 750 watt motor called the Boar E750 Hunter that has Cryptek Outdoors camouflage paint on the frame and fork. This fat tire electric bike was made with hunters in mind because it is powerful, quiet, won’t leave a scent behind, and capable of hauling lots of gear with a large front and rear rack. You get responsive torque sensing pedal assist in addition to throttle on demand up to 20 mph. It looks like a great platform for people who want to blaze a trail and cut through soft wooded terrain or even snow. The 4.5” tires offer cushion as well as traction over varied terrain. This bike is priced at $2,199 and can have the battery pack size upgraded from 48 volt 10.4 amp hours to 48 volt 14 amp hours for an additional $400. The idea is that you could use this bike to get to a tree stand or other hunting spot on public lands where motorized vehicles are not allowed but e-bikes are, Surface 604 is based near the mountains of British Columbia and has consulted with hunters to make this product.

    The other big update Surface 604 shared was new colors for their popular Rook and Colt urban e-bike models. To me, they both looked slightly refined with smaller graphics and nicer matching colors. Both bikes have a satin finish vs. shiny gloss and both can now reach up to 25 mph vs. the older 2017 models which cut out around 20 mph. In addition to the color changes, the stem has been swapped out for a Satori UP2 which is said to be more durable and the price point on both has dropped to $1,799 from $1,899.

    You can see some of my previous Surface 604 ebike reviews at https://electricbikereview.com/brand/... and learn about the company, which is based in Vancouver Canada, at their official website: https://www.surface604.com/

    2018 Shimano Electric Bike Updates from Interbike (STePs E8000 Mid Drive Motor, XT Cranks)
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Sep 20, 2017
    For 2018, Shimano is bringing their new E8000 electric bike motor to the United States with partners like Focus who are using it on the Jam Squared model. This motor is a mountain bike specific product offering up to 70 Nm of torque and ranging from 250 watts to 350 watts. This new motor allows for a traditional 175 mm Q Factor meaning that the crank arms aren’t pushed out to be wider like some other motors. Also, the bottom bracket spindle location is further back, so the effective seat stay length can be shorter and e-bikes using this drive system can be snappier and more responsive. This motor weighs about 6.35 lbs, which is one of the lightest on the market. For comparison, the Bosch Performance Line motor weighs about 8.8 lbs and offers 63 Nm of torque and the Bosch CX motor weighs about the same but offers 75 Newton meters of torque. Both of those are also rated at 250 to 500+ watts. I was able to test ride with this motor and found that it delivers 140+ supported RPM which means you can spin quickly but still have power support. I was told that the stock Shimano battery pack (36 volt 14 amp hour for roughly 500 watt hours of capacity) weighs around 7 lbs. It does not seem to be offering shift detection, even when paired with the Di2 electronic shifters. The new display is the same thing used on some of the XTR bikes and the Di2 electronic shifting, it’s color, very compact, and offers a lot of adjustability. The assist switches look like triggers and make a tactile click when pressed, even though there’s not cable inside, it really blends in and looks like a normal bicycle part vs. a button pad. The two highest Trail and Boost modes can be adjusted using the Shimano E-Tube Bluetooth app (from your smartphone). They even have walk assist, so you don’t have to push the bike if you need to walk a section, just hold the larger left trigger down and it will offer assist, and it will give you more assistance if you are in the lower gears (since they assume you were climbing when you got off to walk).

    The display pad shows current speed, distance, odometer, range, time, average speed, maximum speed, cadence. There are lots of adjustments in the settings menu which can be accessed by double pressing the circle button on the display panel. You are able to turn off the beeping noise, change units, and setup how quickly shifting is performed if you have Di2 electronic shifting. Brant said that the E6000 with internally geared hubs do offer a bit of shift detection.

    Brant Havro was the Shimano representative who walked me through the new E8000 motor system, we were filming at Outdoor Demo Day in Bootleg Canyon Nevada for Interbike. Shimano’s earlier electric bicycle motor was called the M6000 and is still used on many urban products like the Wallerang, it doesn’t offer as much torque (50 Nm vs. 70 Nm), weighs a bit less, and costs less.

    Shimano is also launching some new XT Cranks that go down to 165 mm length vs. the standard 170 mm or 175 mm. This allows for longer travel on some mountain bikes (that are longer, slacker, lower) so you don’t get heel or toe strikes.

    You can learn more about the company at their official website: https://www.shimano-steps.com/

    2018 Haibike Electric Bike Updates from Interbike (Bosch PowerTube, SDURO Cross 1.0, New XDURO)
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Sep 24, 2017
    For 2018, Haibike is expanding their line and offering some lower priced options which is very exciting for people who appreciate their style and quality but are on a fixed budget. I met with Ken Miner, Director of Sales, to explore some of their flagship models. Haibike moved their North America headquarters from Simi Valley, California to Denver, Colorado in March 2017 and have since been working on some Class 1, 2, 3, legislation with Governor John Hickenlooper to make it easier to ride electric mountain bikes on trails.

    So, it used to be that Haibike SDURO models always used the Yamaha drive system and the XDURO models were using Bosch but starting in 2018, they have adjusted things so you may see both drive systems on both lines. In short, SDURO is the more affordable line now and XDURO is more performance oriented and high cost. They say it’s a geometry focused nomenclature vs. motor brand nomenclature. Think “extreme” when you think about XDURO and “sporty” when you think about SDURO.

    The first model we checked out was the SDURO FullLife with 150 mm travel using the Bosch PowerPack step-in battery priced at $4,500 which has a shorter top tube and may be geared towards women a bit since they tend to have shorter arms than guys… but guys can still enjoy this model if they want a more upright body position.

    Next, we looked at the SDURO FullSeven 9.0 which is priced at $5,400 and features the Bosch PowerTube 500 battery. What’s really unique here is that Haibike has developed a rail system above for use with bottle cages or other accessories that can also support a second battery mount for up to 1,000 watt hours of capacity! I was told that Bosch is waiting for UL listing on the PowerTube so we won’t see the in-tube models from Haibike until around August of 2018.

    A bit later, we looked at the SDURO Radius Tour model which uses 20” wheels and is more of a compact design using the Yamaha drive system and battery. They developed this for commuting in the city and have special folding metal pedals. Also, the headset has a swiveling design so you can turn the handle bar to the side and make the bike lay flat on its side or fit easier against other bikes without taking up so much room. This electric bike is priced at $3,000 and Ken told me it is very balanced, has lights, and plastic fenders.

    At this point in our discussion, Ken and I walked over to the XDURO line which are using longer travel suspension in 2018. The first model was the AllMtn 10.0 which offers 150 mm travel and uses the more powerful Yamaha PWX drive system which offers up to 95 Newton meters of torque, has a lower cadence threshold (for faster starts) and a higher supported cadence up to 120 RPM vs. just 120 with the original Yamaha PW. There’s also a new stem display which is a bit more compact, rugged, and stealthy looking. This model is priced at $6,400 and should be available in early 2018.

    A bit later, Ken showed me the latest Haibike FatSix 8.0 which uses the older Yamaha PW motor system which offers 80 Nm of torque and a more limited cadence range. This electric fat bike is priced at $3,700 and offers a derailleur hanger so you could potentially add a second chainring up front for more gearing choice.

    Towards the end, we looked at the XDURO Nduro 8.5 model with 180 mm travel which is more of an enduro bike (for some climbing and downhill performance). This model uses the Bosch CX motor system with up to 75 Nm of torque and very fast starts and full 120 RPM pedal support. This is their mountain-specific motor model, the Nduro 8.5 is priced at $5,200. One of the cool things about Haibike is that they offer four frame sizes for almost all of their different models. Ken mentioned that in 2018 Haibike is going to offer a $4,000 hardtail carbon fiber electric mountain bike! The final model that we actually looked at in person was the XDURO DwnHll 10.5 with 200 mm suspension travel for $6,700. The idea is that you can pedal this up mountains and then enjoy downhill riding in areas that don’t have lifts or helicopter access. The Downhill model is using the Bosch Performance Line CX motor. Most of their mountain bikes are coming with the Bosch Purion display and have EMTB mode enabled.

    At the end, Ken showed me their “innovation award winner” ebike called the XDURO AllMtn 8.0 which offers 150 mm travel, full suspension, a 20 speed drivetrain, Yamaha PWX motor priced at $5,000. I also mentioned their new value-priced model which is $2,200 vs. the cheapest model in 2017 being $2,600. This new e-bike is called the SDURO Cross with more of an urban setup that uses 700c wheels.

    2018 Elby Electric Bike Updates from Interbike (S1, C1, Carrier Rack, BionX Motor)
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Sep 26, 2017
    For 2018, Elby is adding a second electric bike model! I met with the director of global sales and marketing, Scott Macwilliam, and talked about their first bike, the S1 (which sort of stands for Sport model) and then the C1 (which stands for Cruiser). Elby has been updating their branding a bit, with some light blue and purple colors. They still offer many color choices for their bikes. They have a new tagline “Feel Electric” which is a reference to feeling the power of electric assist and throttle but also the good feeling their bicycles give you when riding. I asked what Elby stands for and Scott explained that it was an abbreviation for “electric bicycle”.

    The new C1 was launched at Eurobike and offers more of a traditional look with a high-step frame vs. the deep wave frame of the S1. For me, the names seem a bit reversed because cruisers are more relaxed and that fits the S1 whereas the C1 looks a little sporty and active… but whatever :)

    Elby seems to be connected with Magna International, an automotive company from Canada. They are borrowing some of the quality and design focus from autos and integrating it into their electric bicycles. This is their vision, they want it to be beautiful, and capable, but also safe and integrated. I noticed the high-quality lights, alloy fenders, chain guide, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and removable color display. In terms of price, the S1 is priced at $3,500 and the C1 is priced at $2,999 which is amazing to me considering how they both have so many premium accessories. One of the newest accessories is a carrier rack adapter for adding a basket or drape-over pannier. We got to see both of these items in use at the show. The bikes also come in two sizes so you can improve fit and comfort. As we finished our talk, I made the request that they add bottle cage bosses.

    2018 BESV Electric Bike Updates Interbike (Votani X1, BESV JS1 & PS1 Advanced, TRB Series XC & AM)
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Oct 7, 2017
    For 2018, BESV is refining some of their older models, carrying them forward but lowering the price or enhancing features, and introducing some new off-road models. I spoke with James about what we can expect to see and he took me on a tour of their booth at the Interbike show.

    We started with the BESV JS1 Advance, it comes stock with a rear carry rack, higher handlebar, hydraulic brakes from Magura, 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain. The price is a bit lower at $2,999 so it’s really better in every way.

    BESV is owned by Darfon, a Taiwanese company that also produces electronics. Their US headquarters are in Mountain View, California. Darfon also owns Votani, an ebike company that has been selling to European audiences for several years, and are now coming to the United States. They offer mostly low step-thru bikes with upright body position, sort of like a traditional Dutch bicycle style. Their first model for the US is priced around $2k USD.

    We took a close look at the Votani X1 which is uses a Bafang Max Drive mid-motor and offers chain protector, fenders, skirt guard, and rear rack with battery. It’s an approachable low-step electric bike in white and grey color scheme. I especially liked the suspension fork and suspension seat post. James told me that this is a popular model for ebike rental programs because it has so much adjustability in terms of fit.

    A bit later, we took a look at the PS1 compact electric bike models, which come in a Carbon fiber or Aluminum version (which is more affordable). I like how these offer full suspension frames for improved comfort. This bike also comes in an Advanced model, which is the higher-end spec. It goes for $2,499 which is even cheaper than 2017 (it used to be $3,250) and weighs just 39 lbs. The PSA1 is $1,999 and weighs about 3 lbs more. It uses the same 250 watt internally geared hub motor. Apparently, these models can also reach up to 24 mph now!

    Next, we took a look at the CF1 which comes in two frame sizes with different wheel diameters. You can get a higher, more efficient 28” wheel or the standard 26” which could be more approachable for petite riders. It comes in black, white, and grey color schemes.

    Towards the end, we took a look at the BESV TRB Series electric mountain bikes. The TRB name calls out B for Brose motor, that’s what they are using for the mid-drive. They are available in both hardtail as the TRB XC and full suspension as the TRB AM. The All-Mountain model comes with 150 mm travel suspension and plus sized 2.8” tires with boost axles. The frame is a split tube design which allows you to slide the battery down from the top. It seemed well protected, thanks to a plastic bash guard. The XC is $3,499 and the AM is . You can get blue, black, yellow or possibly some custom camouflage designs. Even special materials like thermo-plastic and titanium. It sounds like it comes in different sizes including 15”, 17” and 19” frame sizes. The battery offers a very large capacity and is rated at 36 volt 21.5 amp hours (756 watt hours).

    James told me that BESV stands for Beautiful Environmental Smart Visions which is neat. It’s a green division of Darfon. They also have a solar division which produces charging stations that are being mounted near railroad stops so you can get free charging for your ebike and other portable electronics. This might be part of Dardon Mobility. As we discussed this, James told me about some mountain biking trails in France and Germany that have solar charging stations along the way to fill your bike up.

    2018 eProdigy Electric Bike Updates Interbike (Magic, Fairweather Carbon, Bee’s Knees Rentals)
    ElectricBikeReview.com



    Published on Oct 6, 2017
    For 2018, eProdigy is continuing to refine and enhance their Achiever mid-drive motor, which was designed to be more streamlined than competing offerings and is only offered on eProdigy bikes. It’s a coaxial bottom bracket internally geared design that is cylindrical in shape, completely hiding behind the standard sized chainring. This year, eProdigy is offering a higher power output option for this motor, rated at 750 watts nominal and peaking around 900 watts. This is a big step up from the early days when the Achiever motor was rated at 350 watts nominal. The new motor can offer up to 120 Newton meters of torque for climbing and hauling heavier loads or larger riders. It’s especially relevant in Vancouver Canada where there are many hills.

    During the Interbike show, I was able to spend some time with Melody Chan, a co-founder and leader within the eProdigy company, to learn more about their latest ebike products and company programs. This company is based in Vancouver, BC, Canada and has been around since 2011. Her father, who is now 80 years old, is a lead engineer and the developer of the Achiever motor. They are now using Panasonic Lithium-ion battery cells for their battery packs, which are widely recognized as being some of the most reliable in the industry.

    For those who wish to go slower, eProdigy allows users to tone down wattage (which will have the side benefit of extending range). Their display system offers several levels of assist, they have easy to mount step-thru models with fun baskets and cute colors (clearly appealing to women) but also some sporty high-step models as well. You can ride these electric bicycles in throttle mode or pedal assist, which measures pedal cadence and does not require as much leg strength to operate once moving. All eProdigy bikes are limited to Class 2 with 20 mph top speed, some of the sportier models are now coming with hydraulic disc brakes. The throttle is modular, and can be disconnected and removed for those who want to ride as a Class 1 bike, perhaps riding on mountain bike trails.

    Much of our conversation revolved around the new Magic step-thru model which is using a mid-frame downtube mounted battery pack. This frees up the rear rack to carry more weight and it reduces frame flex. It also lowers weight to improve handling and stability. This model will be sold in two levels, a base model and Pro. The base model is priced at $1,999 and is sold through dealers in the US and Canada. They offer a two year warranty including the battery pack which is very good! I liked that the battery had a USB A port on the top right so you could charge a phone or fun lights. The Pro model will come with a Gates carbon belt drive and NuVinci N380, making it cleaner and smoother, possibly quieter than a chain drive. These systems can be shifted at standstill and are much less likely to need tuneups or have chain drops. The Magic Pro is priced at $2,999 USD. The base model would have a 9-speed cassette but there’s also an upgrade to Sturmey Archer internally geared hub.

    Another exciting model for 2018 is the lightweight Fairweather folding ebike that offers a carbon fiber frame in addition to the Gates carbon belt drive. I believe that this is their only 500 watt electric bike because it uses a 36 volt battery. It’s meant to be a lightweight commuter platform. The Fairweather is said to weigh under 35 lbs total, which is extremely light for an electric bike. I love that it has a roller wheel just below the motor mount, to make it easier to cart around when folded as well as a magnet to keep it folded. The Fairweather is priced at $3,999.

    The final conversation point for us was the new Bee’s Knees electric bike rentals company that is part of eProdigy. It’s based in Vancouver and offers local tours as well as unguided rentals. They will take you across the Lion’s Gate Bridge in Vancouver and around town if you want to explore the area.

    HyperFat 1000 W E-Bike - Testing new frame and 12T motor
    Juiced Bikes



    Published on Oct 1, 2017
    http://www.juicedbikes.com/updates/20...

    All of the HF1000 Founders Series frames got remade. We were not happy with the frame performance and just scrapped the entire batch of frames and started over. The new frames are much stronger and more capable of standing up to the powerful 1,000 Watt motor. We lab tested the frame with 33% more load and 4x more load cycles than what is necessary for production and it easily passed.

    On these series of rides we are testing the frame and more importantly the 12T motor setup which we have not much time to run. The 12T motor has more torque at the expense of top speed. You can definitely can feel the additional torque and top speed is slightly lower, but still incredible performance especially when you factor in the massive tires.

    The bike far exceeds any pedal-assist e-bike I have tried. It is just on a whole different level. Much beyond this power level and we are moving towards e-motorcycle territory where human input is not helping the motor too much unless you are incredibly strong. At the top speeds, moving your head down a few inches has more of an effect than pedaling harder.

    The bike is fun to ride an you get an amazing workout in a short amount of time which is counter-intuitive. The feeling is like flying on the ground and 30 mph does not feel too intimidating once you get used to the speed. The big tires are very stable and you are not too concerned about the bumps. Maybe that is the advantage of the big ties beyond the "wow" factor.

    The bike shown is nearly 100% stock with production-sourced parts without any special modifications. We did not have time to paint the frame and just needed to get testing as the project is very behind, but the frames will be painted black. All of the frames have been sent out to be painted already. We are running the 48V / 21Ah pack and the controller set to “off road” mode so the speed is not limited. This "Andi Zoo" run is mostly level ground. The frame that is shown is XL.

    We are scheduling the assembly for after the holiday. Here in China it is something like the 4th of July week. So we will loose a few days. We will have updates from the assembly once things get underway. We are not taking any new orders until the initial batch of bikes ship which is estimated to be sometime in November.

    The New Wheel is a premium electric bike shop with two locations, one in San Francisco and the other in Marin, California. I met with the Co-Founder, Brett Thurber, for a tour and some background on which e-bike brands they carry and what other services are offered. It sounds like their San Francisco location has been in place since 2012 and the new Marin location opened in 2016.

    New Wheel has an extensive fleet of demo bikes that can actually take out for rides on the path nearby. Considering that the products they carry tend to be fancier, and more expensive, this is a great opportunity to go for test rides back-to-back. You can even test the Stromer ST2 S which is one of the most expensive electric bikes I have ever reviewed at $10k. They are very close to highway 101 and the ferry that runs from the City.

    They offer a unique warranty and maintenance plan and will try to do repairs and 50 mile checkups with turnaround times in the one to two days so you can get back onto your bike (as a lot of people in this area use their bikes like an automobile and need it every day). You get free included service for 6 months and can sign up for a service membership which includes all of the routine maintenance for $150 to $250 per year… it’s unique to them as a shop, I have not seen this before from others.

    Specialized held a press event on May 18th in Northern California and I decided to wear a camera and do some frame filming to show our ~20 mile ride. You get some conversation about the bikes, some shots of other people riding and a bunch of first person views. The scenery was really beautiful and reps from Bike Radar and Bike Rumor were there to chime in about the bike as well.
