Sol, isn't there anti-trust laws in the States that should cover that scenario from not happening?Sounds good. I'm going to give it a try if the headwinds ever die down here since I've been using the lowest level just to make up for the wind. That's yet another good thing about the Gain, when the electric part dies it can still be used as a real bike unlike the heavier ebikes. As I learned in the past buying an ebike with a battery that just snaps on isn't much help if in a couple of years when the battery needs to be replaced it's no longer available from the manufacturer. Even companies like Bosch keep changing the shape of their battery packs so that old models no longer accept the new battery pack.
