We are pleased to have welcomed Court Rye from Electric Bike Review to our Canadian headquarters in North Vancouver. Since 2010, Court has been writing comprehensive e-bike reviews with the aim of helping people find the right bike for their lifestyles and needs. During his visit we covered lots of local terrain, riding from the beach, through the city and even up into the mountains.
Read his detailed review of the 2017 Mountain here.
We have been listening to our friends (also known as customers), and have been working hard to deliver the fantastic city ride they have been asking for.
What did we learn from their feedback?
We want a step-thru model!
Step-thru? Great idea! Aside from being cruiser-cool in aesthetic, a step-thru makes it MUCH easier to get on and off the bike
A 16.5″ isn’t as maneuverable for more petite people to ride. Is everyone at OHM a basketball player?
The answer? We are offering the City in a <5’4″ friendly 15″ model
A 500W motor is overkill for me.
Answer? The CITY model is available in either 350W or 500W editions. Why opt for the 350W? Maybe you don’t prefer to go everywhere at 45km/h (28mp/h), but would prefer to go a longer distance on each charge. Need a bike to get to work or do a Saturday morning trip to the farmers’ market? This is your ride.
Can you make a more affordable offering?
Absolutely. We will be offering special edition pre-orders of the OHM CITY 350/500W models for holiday season, 2017!
Vancouver resident Steve Vanderwoerd took advantage of Momentum Magazine’s Bicycle Lending Library last month and put some e-bikes to the test. His questions? Who might benefit from an e-bike? How long can the battery really go? How far can you get in an hour? And how much time (and energy!) can be saved when the grade kicks up?
In his first post he talks big picture, looking at whether e-bikes are worthwhile and in the second, he puts an OHM e-bike to the test, commuting across Vancouver to Simon Fraser University, which just happens to be on the top of a mountain. He talks price, battery life and who he thinks could benefit most from an e-bike.
