Téo S Limited Video Review - $2.2k Feature Packed Fat Electric Bike

https://electricbikereview.com/teo/s-limited/ The Téo S Limited is a powerful, feature-rich fat electric bike available in two frame sizes and three colors, suspension fork and seat post really smooth out the ride. Extra-large 48 volt, 17 amp hour battery provides the energy necessary to use throttle mode or the highest level of assist without as much range anxiety. Lots of attention to detail, the derailleur guard, rear-mounted kickstand, adjustable angle stem, and hydraulic disc brakes really set it apart. Good value but all of those accessories add weight, only sold online so you can’t test the sizes easily and have to assemble it yourself, limited stock, cannot throttle from zero or without pedaling first.

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

https://electricbikereview.com/vintage-electric-bikes/cafe/ 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.

Ebike Owner Interview – 3 Years on an Easy Motion Neo City, Mike

Ebike Owner Interview - 3 Years on an Easy Motion Neo City, Mike

I was traveling through Marin California, up near San Francisco, and randomly met a fellow named Mike who has owned an Easy Motion Neo City Electric bike for about three years. He was on his way to the hardware store to pick up some lightbulbs and decided to ride his-ebike instead of driving. We chatted about his experience owning and using the bike to get around town and explored his accessories and modifications a bit. First, Mike explained that most people don’t even realize he is riding an electric bike because of how well the battery is integrated. The hub motor is also fairly compact and hidden (sandwiched between the cassette and disc brake at the rear). He parks the bike in his shed but brings the battery inside to charge it (which protects it from heat). His bike was in excellent shape because of how he stores it out of the weather and elements.

Mike also likes how adjustable the handlebar and stem are, you can raise or lower and even twist the bars all without a tool because of the adjustable stem on this ebike. I asked whether it had come loose at all (which I have heard can happen when riding over a lot of rough terrain) but he said it still felt very strong. He called the ergonomic grips and saddle comfortable but his saddle was starting to fade and peel a bit. Unlike some of the diamond high-step frames, Mike said he had no problem getting onto the bike because it is a step-thru.

Mike said that 99% of the time, he uses pedal assist and chooses the lowest option. His odometer said 1,400+ miles and he told me that he has ridden so far, he needed to get new tires put on at one point because the old ones were losing their tread. I asked whether he felt like he was riding more frequently because of his ebike and he said yes, he still gets a workout and he doesn’t get as hot and sweaty.

Accessories he added:
– Handlebar bottle cage adapter like this: http://amzn.to/2uycqqT
– Insulated CamelBak water bottle like this: http://amzn.to/2vwhoBX
– Clip-on front handlebar basket like this: http://amzn.to/2hUn9Gh
– Clip-on front handlebar bag like this: http://amzn.to/2vsy1jr
– Black bar mounted flick-bell like this: http://amzn.to/2fAek3Q
– A Blackburn trunk bag with panniers like this: http://amzn.to/2fAJfwP

Magnum Metro Video Review - Fast, Comfortable, Value Electric Bike

https://electricbikereview.com/magnum/metro-step-thru/ The Magnum Metro is an approachable, mid-step, high-speed, urban electric bike with six levels of pedal assist plus throttle mode that can override with full power. Fairly comfortable with larger tires, a basic suspension fork, and cheap seat post shock… the ergonomic grips, gel saddle, and adjustable stem also help. Great safety features including a white frame option, reflective tires, and front and rear lights, however the lights require independent activation vs. being integrated. A bit heavier at ~58.4 lbs due to the high-capacity batteries, alloy fenders, and rack, the kickstand gets in the way at times, no bottle cage bosses, fixed display.
