  1. Where did you shoot this video? The background looks beautiful~

  2. Weight & prices go up.I would rather see manufacturer promote cheaper & simple commute bike in the mist of pandemic,not everyone are working for tech companies.

  3. Personally I think weight and to a lesser degree bulk are going to be key players as we move forward. Folding is great in terms of bulk but if you can’t effectively lift maneuver your folded bike what’s the point? Then there’s security. You don’t want your mobility device stolen car or bike. Unfortunetly EBikes are gaining in popularity for thieves as well. Which might go hand in hand with weight and bulk as the more often your bike can go with you the less likely it will be left unguarded.

  6. I would like to see more bikes in the trekking category, Mt bikes seems to be the major focus, or at least thats the way it appears.

    What bike is that at 6:24 of the video?

  8. Thanks. Been cycling since early 1980’s. Just purchased our 1st ebike for my wife so we can ride together. Went for our 1st ride yesterday "together" in a very long time. It was wonderful being able to ride together again with her on her ebike and me on my vintage Eddy Merckx "not-so ebike" here in Vermont.

    I’m seeing a covid trend in 2020.

  10. Honestly, I feel like Apple needs to come out with an electric bike!

  11. _"Or using your cellphone for example to make phone calls"_ XD

  12. I’ve been a cyclist all my life. I am 52 years old now and decided to give my knees a break in 2019.
    Got my 1st ebike after comparison shopping all the companies.
    Could have spent a lot more but I got the features I wanted for a good value.
    I bought a Leitner Berliner for 1,149 and have no complaints. I replaced the mechanical brakes with hydraulic duals, and have ridden over 3000 miles since July.

  13. I’d like to see more integrated security/anti theft solutions across all price ranges

  14. great feedback on the future of electric bike,. Really enjoyed

  15. Play the video at 1.5x. You can thank me later. 🙂

  16. Using your cell phone to make calls.?. groundbreaking

  17. Canadian Trends, overpriced still and very limited stock due to people wanting to avoid public transportation. Cabin fever probably is helping too.

  18. Great Channel, thanks

  19. 4:33 Using your cell phone to make phone calls? What will they think of next?

  20. What are your thoughts on ebikes like the backcountry mule and storm?

  21. 5:09 isn’t there a law that doesn’t allow bikes to go over 20 while still being classified as bicycles?

  22. Insightful video, thank you

  23. 10 best feature today in a bike:
    – front & back cargo possibility
    – maintance free hub shifter
    – oil free carbon belt
    – yamaha pw-se / pw-x japanese reliability
    – monotube frame with low step-in comfort
    – expandable optional dual batterie setup for bigger trips
    – sub 2000€ ebike
    – puncture free tyres
    – light reflective frame + tyres
    – gps enabled tracking system for extra protection

  24. 1:23 what make/model E bike is that? Love the belt drive and rear hub gears.. very clean looking and smooth riding

  25. Thanks for your great work. Somewhat unrelated question, although sort of a "trend" hopefully. Are there any tax deductions, refunds, etc in the US, with the purchase of e bikes? There is a bill in the works but unclear if it’s been passed into law. Thanks!

    We live in mountains will it make it up a mountain hill motor on, Will it over heat.. inquiring for my boys who want one because they seen online but on flat land never on hills.. Tks

  27. Really well explained. Very good information provided in this video!

  28. Good alternative to the Porsche.

    Great video by the way

  30. Pricing of bicycles on your phone for the average joe can see what he’s dealing with.

  31. what happens when you need to replace the battery on an integrated bike?

  32. color LCD screens, torque with cadence sensors, 750 W or higher rear motors, 28+ mph, and 16+ amp hour batteries, is that too much ask?

  33. I like the Bennos for looks and Cargo capacity, but they I think, they can only do 20mph in N.A. with the Bosch motor. Which brand would you suggest to look at in the “speed bike” category that can do 28 mph, but still has carry capacity via accessories, for groceries etc. In the city. Thank you !

  34. Trek. Giant. and Specialized. Are the top dogs in eBikes right now.

  35. Nice video, very informational. Anyone ever tell you that you look like Justin Bateman….8^)

  36. I do wish you gave specific examples of the good and bad bikes and equipment mentioned. This video does not move my education either way. Lots of words well spoken but not much said.

  37. Nich? oh you mean Niche .

  38. You’d have to be pretty wealthy to buy a $4k bike, knowing that next year’s model will be so much better.

    I’m looking for an E bike with solid wheels any suggestions

  40. Ask Tern add 2nd battery and Rohloff E-14. Don’t want auto.

  41. I will save you 8 minutes
    E-bikes are starting to have faster motors that are smaller and integrated more and more into the bikes
    They are starting to use fatter tires
    The range on many bikes is growing longer
    They are starting to use belt drives
    It’s almost like the evolution of the motorcycle all over again except with electric motors instead of gas motors this time

  42. ALIEN JUGA KEPO!!! January 14, 2021 @ 11:34 pm

    1. Battery life and power
    2. Spartpart support/after sales
    3. Material
    4. Seat comfortable
    5. Charging time
    6. Model/design
    7. Folding capacity

  43. I think the challenge is to make batteries that charge much faster so you can recharge on the go when you have access to an outlet.

  44. Smaller batteries? I hope they have the same capacity. Also I’m not a fan of integral batteries. Are they removable when they go bad? Do they prevent the use of spare battery packs?

    They killed Simon Cowell

  46. thanks. i’m getting my first Ebike soon. Ecotric Hammer 1000w 48v 13ah 4" Fat Tire Cruiser e-Bike i’m 6ft 300. i am working out to loose weight. any opinions on this bike? it’s really the only one i think is big enough for me under 1500 dollars. i’ve checked almost 50 different bikes. thanks.

  47. Currently watching a bike selling locally, where they’re doing some ad work on Facebook, but it also has some pretty good reviews. A few issues by some, but most are thrilled. One thing I like is the ability to add another battery, to where they’re stating 120 miles in some instances, but I’m thinking it may be closer to 120 km’s, and that’s with fewer hills, but still, and outstanding achievement for e-bikes in general. I’m new to the e-bike thinking, and possibly will bite at getting something in the middle-point of pricing, as it’s more that I’m now retired, and have trouble slogging up some of the tough hills that I didn’t have so much trouble with when younger. I’d like to see more integration via the cell phone as mentioned, but overall I’m excited to see what is coming on the horizon! Then again, I live in an area of frequent rains on the west coast, so there’s always a period where the bike gets stored for fairly long periods too….so there is much to think about, before diving in! Thanks for the video and your thoughts!

  48. Hi Chris, nice video as usual. I think the next step it will be to make bikes more safe and more comfortable, like ABS systems and IoT. I really appreciate the automatic shifting and I think it will be the future. I’d like to visit your shop next time in NY but now from Italy it’s not so easy in current situation. Bye

  49. There is a big battery upgrade coming, we already see it in wireless headphones. Only a metter of time until we see 100 km range on a charge.

  50. niche. It’s pronounced ‘knee-isch’
