BOSCH Powertube System United States Release Timing

Aw yea FINALLY Bosch has produced an internal battery system for their widely popular mid-drive ebike system. Only problem is.... IT'S NOT OUT YET here in the good old USA. That's right, as of this blog post, if you want to own a new Haibike, Corratec, Cube or other brand of ebike that is talking about and showing the Bosch POWERTUBE ebike battery system in their models you'll need to wait until around summer time of 2018 before you get that brand new ebike you're eyballing on our web site.

Ebikes like the Haibike SDURO Fullseven 9.0 or the Haibike XDURO (ALLTN) All Mountain 10.0 won't be shipping to any dealer until this time due in part to the fact that the BOSCH batteries take more time to get approved by the US consumer safety people before they can be allowed for sale here. We'll have this system available for Haibike and Cube ebikes soon!

Now, depending on when you are reading this, we still recommend you get on the ball and get your order in sooner rather than later for any POWERTUBE system you have your eyeballs set on if you really want one in 2018. Reason being, I predict they will sell out by the time they ship and start to get scarce. In fact it could be we miss seeing them in 2018 at all if things get delayed further.

Now- if you don't want to wait that long, just get a regular system. We have plenty of great new ebikes with the standard battery and note this "older" system is going to be around for a long, long time and the price of spare batteries is certain to go down quickly.

But, if you still want "hidden power" and don't want to wait, then we highly recommend some of the new Moustache ebikes which use the standard Bosch powerpack and hide it inside the frame quite nicely with no summer time delay. See those here in our Moustache Ebike Page.

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
