  1. what about munro2.0 luxury electric motorcycle. look like it was made in old France the style

  2. Great video, gained a lot of technical knowledge that I generally expect in YT vdos or tech blogs. Thanks

  3. Very informative – thank you – had to chuckle – "pedaled" backwards explaining torque assist. 馃檪

  4. Thank you for such enlightening information. You reference purchase costs but don’t necessarily compare bikes based on costs. Any thoughts to doing some head-to-head comparisons with some of the leading or best-selling bikes in each class? Thank you for providing a quality service to the growing bicycling community.

  5. Hi – you didn’t mention one of the most important factors and that’s the weight of the bike. This affects everything from range, feel, the ability to store the bike inside, and so on. Personally I wouldn’t consider buying any ebike that’s heavier than 50 pounds. I learned this the hard way, having one stolen from outside because it was simply too heavy to carry into my house. Plus, if the battery ever dies on you during a ride (and they will), pedaling a 65+ pound bike is no fun at all.

    Sir you have a clear voice and it is well done.With an ear problem I understand you better than som others what is important for me.. Regards from Belgium.

  7. Live in Mn. I ride all winter. Can I ride an E bike in let’s say 0 degrees?

  8. Fantastic video. Very helpful for beginners looking to buy an e-bike. Thank you!

    I weigh almost 300 pounds and am interested in a Ebike. Does Bolton make a good bike for me? Price?
    Thanks

  10. He said all these watts and then he said 250 and I said ha I have 1000-watt

    Good explanation. Thanks for educating!

  12. very helpful video

  13. Good information!

  14. Hey bro what is your suggestion for an ebike decent for winter time? I鈥檝e been looking at both the Ariel Rider and The Cheetah

  15. Great info arranged logically.
    A talented teacher for sure.

  16. My friend who does alot of riding brought up something about the torque power. Would you please elaborate on this torque power.
    Thanks

  17. If you have looked at quality mid-motor eMTBs and have been SHOCKED to learn you need to spend $4k or MORE to get a decent eMTB, you need to look at CYBERBIKE! Top-quality bike utilizing top-quality components for a TON LESS! Starting at $1995 you should look at the mid-motor 2927 Mullet for $2495! New company owned by people with a motorcycle racing background! https://cyberbike.us/

  18. Que Dios nos perdone.

  19. I need a ride

  20. Please how can I maintain my new 20 inches Bafang motor electric bike to last 10hrs every day. And I think if you can explain the mechanism of how the motor and the gear box works for me, I will be better in maintaining it. My target is to know how to last 10hrs with the battery.

  21. How does a mid motor put wear on the derailleur? The extra tension is surely only between the top of the chain sprocket and the cassette, the derailleur only guides the chain back onto the cassette?

  22. Excellent presentation. Proper knowledge creates the best outcome!

  23. I appreciated the information, but the formula volts 脳 amps= watt hour would be more useful with a comparison when all things are equal. And the relationship between the battery watts and how many watts the motor uses or can use.

  24. learn something from you. thank sir… (phillipines)

  25. I just watched this video and wondered if the battery on the bike are recharable. My answer would be Yes, but how? Is it on the same idea as an auto battery.. I really would like to know.

  26. My coworker who rides a lot brought up the torque power when I was asking him about the watt. He said it is more important to look into the torque power , pls elaborate on this, thanks.

  27. 馃憤馃憤

  28. Good stuff……you sound just like Spence from King of Queens, ha ha.

    MY BIKE IS THE FUTURE WATCH MY VIDEOS

  30. Awesome info and break down of E Bikes. Very helpful. I’m 6ft 4…. 250lbs. Any suggestions on bikes to invest in? I would like a E Bike large enough to sit comfortably. Need power on hills (up). Something that can be repaired/ changed/upgraded in th future. Something durable. Gonna share this video.

  31. Great assessment as always!

  32. Just trying to decide if it is worth it to replace my motorcycle with a ebike when hunting. I understand you cannot comment on access laws as they vary from area to area. The benefits would be: much easier to carry or transport, decreased noise polution, increased access, and decreased storage on the off-season. Knowing almost nothing about ebikes, are these assumptions correct and are there others I have not considered? Also, recharge issues, how to do them in the back-country, and cost? Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.

  33. Thank you very helpful. Can you help with what brands have the step through and the forward pedals so you can sit with feet on the ground but still have correct pedal distance for cycling. No one in my area has one I can test ride. I rode a friend’s Townie Go and it was great but can’t find one for sale.

  34. Finally someone explained what to really look for when buy an E-bike

  35. The part about range especially makes sense. Changes with use.

  36. Extremely informative. I am considering on buying an Ebike and had no knowledge of what to look for until watching this video

  37. Great job explaining the purpose and maintaining an E-bike馃憤

  38. I’m not even halfway through this video and I learned more in 9 minutes I’m watching this video then I have learnt spending all maybe a hundred hours of watching videos and reading stuff online to learn about the different types of e-bikes a different types of motors. Thank you sir thank you sir thank you sir amazing video I’m going to go back and watch the other half I can’t wait to see what I’m going to learn. Thanks so much for clearing up a lot of unanswered questions and saving me probably another hundred hours of research. And yes I’m going to like share and subscribe because you put in your time and effort that’s the least I can do to thank you
