Gazelle Avenue C8 Video Review - Approachable, Relaxed, Comfortable Electric Bicycle
ElectricBikeReview.com


Published on Dec 29, 2017
https://electricbikereview.com/gazell... The Gazelle Avenue C8 is a durable, streamlined, wave style step-thru electric bicycle from an established European brand with an excellent track record of quality and service, available in three frame sizes for improved fit. Uses one of the lightest, quietest, and most efficient mid-drive motors from Shimano with an updated display panel and high-capacity 504 watt hour rear-rack battery, adjustable swept-back handlebar. Purpose-built frame routes cables internally but has cutouts for serviceability, reinforced main-tube reduces frame flex, smaller 26" tires bring the frame closer to the ground, gel saddle and seat post suspension feel great. Integrated LED lights and reflective tires keep you visible and safe, fully encased chain stays clean and won't drop easily, internally geared hub can be shifted at standstill and won't get dirty or go out of true as easily as a derailleur.

Evelo Quest Max Video Review - Folding, Gates Belt Drive, NuVinci N380, Ebike
ElectricBikeReview.com


Published on Feb 10, 2018

https://electricbikereview.com/evelo/... The Evelo Quest Max is a feature rich, powerful, folding electric bike with extendable stem and long seat post option for taller riders, it's easy to mount and handle, weight is positioned low and center. The Bafang Max mid-motor is powerful but efficient, you can adjust pedal speed gearing at standstill or while riding and there is no mashing because of the NuVinci CVT hub. Weighing nearly 51 lbs, this is heavier than the single-speed Evelo Quest One, and it costs $900 more, but is much more versatile and powerful, available in two colors (light blue and metallic grey). Sturdy double-leg kickstand makes loading the rack or folding the bike easy, padded grips and and saddle pair with the premium Schwalbe Balloon tires for comfort, integrated lights and fenders increase safety, two USB charging ports, excellent customer support and warranty.

2018 Rad Power Bikes Updates (Canada, Europe RadRhino, Velofix Partnership)
ElectricBikeReview.com


Published on Feb 20, 2018
Rad Power Bikes has a completely revamped line of electric bikes set to launch in 2018 as well as some business changes. They will be expanding from the US into Canada and several countries in Europe with the RadRhino. I was told that RPB has become the largest consumer direct electric bike maker in the US.

Dan Henderson will be the Canadian Business Director, the company is now fulfilling orders direct from their Vancouver BC shipment center and that means free shipping. Canadian ebikes will meet the legal spec with 500 watt motors there.

Arnot Saladin will be the European Business Director operating out of Rotterdam Netherlands will be their EU fulfillment center. They will be shipping to Germany, France, the UK and many others using the L1EA category (it’s like a hybrid of an ebike and a moped which requires a license but allows for higher power, it’s classified as a Light Power Cycle).

Rad Power Bikes is also partnering with Velofix in the US to deliver, assemble, tune and support electric bikes locally since they are a consumer direct brand that is not carried in shops. RPB is their largest premiere partner using the Velofix direct model.

The RadRhino, only available in Europe, has a license plate mount, brake light, and always-on headlight. These are all mandatory features for operating on the road in Europe.

Some key features of the 2018 models for the US are a standardized battery pack that works across all models, it’s a custom designed pack (though it sort of looks like the Shark pack) that contains more cells and a replaceable fuse. One of the brand new models that I really liked was the step-thru RadCity which positions battery weight well and is still very approachable but the frame has been reinforced with gussets, to reduce flex. Mike explained to me that they have a new rack system which is compatible with all models, and it’s super sturdy and stiff being frame-mounted vs. on the front fork (which can impact steering). The rack can also be mounted to the back of the RadWagon and all of the models now have nice integrated lights…

All of the 2018 electric bicycles for the US market are going to be priced at $1,499 except for the RadWagon (electric cargo bike) which will be priced $100 more at $1,599.

2018 Electric Bicycle Center Updates from Fullerton California
ElectricBikeReview.com


Published on Apr 12, 2018
I visit Sam's shop pretty regularly, checking out the new bikes and getting his insights on the industry. He has been selling electric bikes longer than almost anyone in the United States and his shop in Fullerton, California is a fun and interesting place to visit. You can really get a feel for the variety of models and test ride anything that you want.

While exploring the showroom floor, Sam showed me some Riese & Müller, Easy Motion, Fantic, Haibike, IZIP, Bulls, Juiced Bikes, e-JOE, Day 6, and Motiv. We talked about kick scooters and I was able to interview two customers about their interests and experiences at the shop. Those customer interviews can be watched starting at 12:50 and 15:47

Electric Bicycle Center Details:
- Address: 400 E Commonwealth Ave, Suite 6, Fullerton, CA 92832
- Shop Phone Number: (714) 992-5591
- Website: https://electricbicyclecenter.com/

I have reviewed many of the models we talked about and saw during this ebike shop tour. Some are still in the works and will be posted soon. You can find them by visiting http://electricbikereview.com/ and using the search function.

Electric transport is a hot topic for sure. Just recently we have featured on our channel an episode about the fastest electric bicycles that exist today.

Here is the link for you, in case you missed it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oNKW...

The major feedback that we received was our viewer’s dissatisfaction with high prices of those two-wheelers. So in this episode we decided to review 10 of the cheapest models on sale that come to your doorstep almost factory assembled and do not require additional skills and sophisticated instruments to be put together. Do you think you can get a decent electric bicycle for $1000 or less? Let watch and find out!

Electric bicycles featured in this video:

Populo Sport: populo.com/products/populo-sport-v1

Store link: https://amzn.to/2EuCEuM

On today’s market there aren’t that many ebike models that combine light weight of 36 lbs and rather affordable price of $1,000. Populo Sport has a single speed drivetrain with a hub motor in the rear wheel.

Juiced Bikes CrossCurrent Air: juicedbikes.com/pages/crosscurrent-air-product-information

Store link: https://amzn.to/2JryyXV

This is the second generation pedelec from Juiced Bikes CrossCurrent line, that is now even more affordable. It comes with lifetime warranty on the frame, two years on the mechanical components and 1 year on the battery.

The Scout is an oversized middle price model from Populo that gets richer package of features, more battery capacity and higher speed. Unlike many bikes from this class it has a mid-drive motor with 350 W output.

Moar Bike: moar.bike

In this video we tried to avoid featuring crowdfunding bikes that are not readily available and have proven their worthiness, but Moar managed to grab our attention, being the first comparatively affordable electric bicycle with full suspension.




Mijia QiCycle: xiaomi-mi.com/electric-bikes/xiaomi-mijia-qicycle-folding-electric-bike-red

Sondors Original: sondors.com/collections/north-america-pre-sale/products/2018-sondors-original-us-canada-only

This exact model put Sondors on the map of electric bicycle buyers and at the time of the release in 2015 the Original secured the title of the most affordable eBike ever produced.

Folding Wave: waveelectricbikes.com/shop/electric-bikes/folding-wave/

Folding Wave priced at $899 is the cheapest offered by the company. With a 350 W motor, it is less powerful than its siblings.

Propella: www.propella.bike/

Propella combines a minimalistic design with the latest battery technology to create lightweight plug and play ebikes that are easy to use, reliable and pretty fun to ride.

Tidal Wave: waveelectricbikes.com/shop/electric-bikes/tidal-wave

2 Days, 92 Miles, First Time Bikepacking with an Electric Bike
ElectricBikeReview.com


Published on May 21, 2018
My friend Jeremy delivers a local newspaper paper in Fort Collins Colorado by bike. He has made some friends who also work on the paper that enjoy cycling, and some of them enjoy cycling to the foothills and camping, this is called bikepacking! The thing is, Jeremy has a hip issue and Crohn's disease. His intestines are regularly inflamed and this limits the level of physical activity that he can endure. Many of their bike camping trips last an entire weekend, and each rider has to haul their own tent, sleeping bag, rain gear, food, and water. So, Jeremy hasn't been able to go bikepacking with a traditional bike.

One day, Jeremy mentioned that his friends planning another camping trip and he was curious if I had an extra electric bike that he could borrow! Nope, I did not... but I reached out to my friend Tom Wilson at Small Planet EV in Longmont Colorado, asking whether he could loan us a bike or sell a unit cheap. I asked if he had any mountain bikes with smaller frames since Jeremy is 5'6" and 155 lbs. We were in luck! Tom had a 2016 Felt LEBOWSKe that he would sell at cost to help us out. I bought and donated the bike to Jeremy because his entire life is spent on a bicycle and this would also help him to deliver newspapers more easily! So, Jeremy and five friends spent a weekend riding 92 miles into Northern Colorado. They actually cycled the entire way from Fort Collins.

The forum topic is posted at https://electricbikereview.com/forum/... and is a work in progress :)
