Strategies for Seeking an E-bike
In response to 144642: E bike, posted by Terri 2 on Monday, 11 January 2021, at 5:11 a.m.
Yes, I had the same idea, to check all the local sources first - because the lithium batteries are tricky to get to Hawaii. Each e-bike has uniquely installed battery shapes.
I went to Bikeworks, they only had ONE e-bike that was folding. It was $1700 and it didn't have a disc brakes, bike stand, back rack, fenders, shocks, etc. that I considered to be essential. AND I'm finding these features in e-bikes that are HALF the price! (of course, this doesn't include shipping.)
My list of features is:
I went to Kona Sports (across from Honokahou harbor) - the people who work on Trek bikes. They were nice enough to give me a list of electric bike motors they would service - recommending I should get an e-bike with a motor on their list.
But what I still need - are the independent bike repair people who aren't affiliated with a store that anyone has used previously - even for just bike repair.
