    What insurance are you using?

    I am in Quebec, my room insurer covers my bikes to 3,000$ each but i pay an extra 25$/year and they double the max per bike to 6,000$ wich is fine in my case. It mainly covers stolen bikes wich is a plague here for the last 50 years.

    Set up - pins & needles in hands

    Maybe you can prepare to cut your handlebar. Try moving your brakes levers 10mm inside on each side to see if you like it, maybe go for even shorter that is like using a riser bar it lifts your head+shoulders, less weight on your hands. I use 600mm and love it, i started at 740mm.

Remember on any bike a small change might make...

    Yamaha PW-XM 2.6kg 85nm

    It is marketing just like 50 teeth rear, 51, 52. Some people focus on what is not important it becomes a selling point.

She was not willing the second time but...

    I struggle to justify the price of EMTBs when this cost less….

    No question in my mind. I do not want the noise associated with snowmobile/motocross bike. I live up north with snow, ice and cold for many months. I have been carless the last 23 years. My Ebike is fun and practicle year round. Maybe a Giant/Yamaha is worth looking at, more affordable.
