That scooter place looked sketch as hell. Who knows what kind of cheezed charger let alone charge controller were...
Way north of you, in Whatcom county on the Canada border in the hills east of Everson and Sumas above the large delta flat. NW of Bellingham.
We lived in Lynnwood 1992 to 2000. Still have friends there. Worked in Redmond, last place was in Duvall.
I will say nothing bad about any solid manufacturer. I've ridden 3000-5000W monsters and 250W wimps, in the end Bosch seems to be the best combo of legal power, reliability and competency. Their website is a bit wonky from the USA side, but certainly better than most. Technically their tie-in...
I just bought a Neo 3, alloy, small, new, on sale $4500US

Good to be here.
1) Long time biker, 65 years OLD
2) Long time motorized biker of all varieties (gas, electric, OK no jet or rockets yet)
3) Just bought my very first commercial emtb. Cannondale Moterra Neo 3 and it's a blast to ride and I've ridden 3000W ebikes!
But other than that retired...
