With the brands now releasing all their ebikes for 2020, here’s my top selection going into 2020. These are the bikes I will be recommending to friends and family to look into having tested them all… Let me know your thoughts, and what ebikes you’d like to see on my channel in 2020.

Great to see the Focus Jam² made it onto your list... but you never did manage to rate it onto your eebometer. Any reason? (Says he, still impatiently tapping his foot awaiting the arrival of his Jam² from Focus ;))

Thats what I mean Rob ... what wrong with Norco, why they don’t let you test his bike?
Keep in mind that it was just 8 top bikes .. not "ALL the top bikes" .. as attractive as Rob is, I think after an 8 hour you tube marathon Rob session I'd be getting a bit bored :)

Also in the UK, where Rob's based out of, Norco don't have a huge e-bike range..

For instance .. this is the UK range :

And these are the US/Canadian and a lot of other places range ..

After Brexit, when electricity is banned, he might be forced to re-locate to the European mainland where there will be a larger range of Norco bikes to ride. If he settles in France, he can keep the name "Robert", if he goes to Italy, Spain or Portugal, he can become the much more flamboyant "Roberto"

His options are pretty endless though ... "Robert" must have more global variations than any other name :

Bert, Bertie, Berto, Bertus (also short for Albert or Herbert)
Beto, Betinho (Portuguese)
Bo, Bob, Bobbie, Bobby
Chrodobert, Chrodobrecht (Frankish)
