Unfortunately I missed Falco at Interbike. Combining the controller with the motor and having a wireless display are great ideas. These ideas will save a lot of installation time and make neater bikes. Wish I understood what 5 phase motors mean.
I test rode the Juiced Riders’ cargo bike and think the 20″ wheels and easy step through are excellent ideas for carrying cargo. I often load up my 70 cm wheeled bicycle for trips from the grocery or Home Depot and then fighting with a floppy steering and a kick stand that can’t hold the bike. Wish I had a Juiced cargo bike.

You missed what many of us felt was the best kit system at the show. We saw and rode some bikes with the BMZ/Go Swiss hub motors, including two incredible cargo bikes, at the BMZ and Pete’s Electric Bikes booths. I found the green trekking bike with a BMZ kit that Pete’s was showing in the outdoor demo arena to be the best of them all.
Good point Zennon. I just added some pictures of those.
