    ... and they're geared to produce amazing torque.

    Krafty bikes have a couple new models coming out soon that are not shown on the web site that would be suitable. Krafty are decent quality, not amazing, not crap, at the price of crap bikes.

    For long climbing approaches you'll definitely want a mid drive. When you're looking at web sites claimed ranges, 5-10 miles one way uphill with gear can translate to about 40 miles of flat, the downhill is free mileage.

    It hasn't been a problem and there isn't a bike shop around with less than a 3-4 week turnaround time so I ignored it and rode it till it quieted down on it's own. I'm also on the disabled list for a few more days at least so it gets some more time to relax and heal. Bikes are people too

    Good to know.I like those fixes. Some get louder, some qiieter then louder. As long as they keep working is the main thing. Hope youre on the mend. Lots of summer yet

    After being down for the count for 5 weeks things felt better this week and I got out twice. After a crazy fast ride (for me) yesterday I came to the conclusion that I have to stay on a hardtail e-mtb or I'm going to end up being one of those e-bike dudes that everyone hates. I think the bike liked its little vacation, it was running so well...

    Thatís good to know. I got my wife a Trek Rail 5.
    Nice bike, but I was disappointed by the lack of torque on the Bosch. Not nearly as much as my E8000.

    Posted this in other thread but this one is better.

    Our local electric company offers a lot of rebates for energy efficient changes. I can apparently get a $200 rebate on my recent ebike purchase.
    Eagle and Roaring Fork peeps may be eligible. Maybe similar programs in other areas.
