Checking out the Haibike XDURO AllMtn 9.0 Ebike

When BOSCH announced the new powertube internal battery system we in the ebike community go really excited. EMTB riding can be a touchy situation here in the United States where entrenched camps in the MTB world often sneer at Ebikes on trail. Some trails here in the SF BAY area outright ban ebikes from trails, for no good reason. The new BOSCH intube system will make it a lot harder for a ranger or traditionalist to snoop about what you are, which means you can ride your ebike where you want in peace.

The new Haibike XDURO AMT 9.0 (all mountain) ebike features the new PowerTube system and it's going to be one of the hot tickets in 2018 when this things comes out. But, hold your hats, if you want one you're going to get to put in an order soon because these bikes will sell pre-sold before they are shipped. The other problem is they are not shipping until Summer of 2018 and there won't be enough of them. 

The Haibike ALLMTN 9.0 has the BOSCH CX motor, of course and features FOX suspension front and rear. Dropper seatpost is there and great tires. The Bosch powertube is a little more expensive and  weighs more than the standard 500w battery pack, but some will find it worth it. 

Note- the PowerPack 500w and 400w systems will all be around for many years to come and if you are thinking about parts availability, the standard batteries will always be more common since they are easier to use on bikes. 

Motostrano is taking orders on the AMT 9.0 now. Go ahead and get your order in. 

Note- we also sell the Cube and Mosutache brand ebikes, which also use the Powertube (Cube) or in Moustache's case, they have a great Hidden Power system that uses that standard good old fashion Bosch system.

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
