TEST UPDATE: Stromer Electric Bike



Motostrano has been selling the Stromer Electric Bicycle now for oh six months or so. In spite of the fact that I have full faith in humanity's ability to create solutions with technology, like you, I still hold out a chunk of skepticism when it comes to some stuff. And, even though electric bicycles have been around for practically a hundred years- there's still a lot of smoke and mirrors, a lot of crap-tech and junk-tech that manages to get to market. So, unlike a bike with no motor- we're always in "test mode" with electric bikes.

Maybe we are being too hard on them? Comparing an e-bike to all the qualities of a non-motorized bicycle isn't totally fair, perhaps. A traditional bicycle can sit around in a garage for fifty years and still function basically as it did when new. An electric bicycle has other things going on that reduce it's lifespan significantly.

Still- we want these investments to last and perform as long and as good as possible. We expect a lot of them.

6 months into it our Stromer e-bike test mules are going strong. Batteries have held up. Motor power has held up. We've knocked them down a few times. Rode them in the rain and forgotten to charge them a for a while. This is what we want to know.

The Stromer is, by far, the best electric bike we've used to date.

It's also a lot of fun. It's fun to ride and it's beautiful to look at. It goes up hills great. It goes down hills and stops great. It performs in traffic great and its switches and cables, motors and battery all are holding up to the ultimate test: time.

It looks good too. The Swiss flag gives it away as something European, but so does its lines and architecture. It's a solid bike and feel the same way a Mercedes or BMW feels on the road. Good plastics. Good paint. Good fixtures. These are the things you would expect from a European machine of any kind and the Stromer delivers.

Well, it's not made in Europe. It's designed there and it shows. It's a beautiful electric bike.

Sales demand has been very good as well. We have sold more Stromer electric bikes than any other electric bike to date, and this is still our most expensive electric bicycle.

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
