Ginny Newman says:

where is Sam’s shop? I visit Oceanside a lot (my kids live there) and I’d love to go visit it!

Another great review. If the floor price is close to 1750 just add a stiffer stem and I think it’s a winner. Comfortable position for an easy cruiser that can hit it and get it in occasion. Nice overall package

I just bought the Maui version from Sam a few weeks ago. I really like the bike. It is super fast and very fun to ride. I like the level 5 the best. It is like having a Tesla for a bike. Quick acceleration. I am only using it for short distances so I am not sure about the range, but since it is only for a few miles who cares. I had Sam take off the fenders and put on some fatter tires for the beach. I noticed that the Chain guard makes a lot of noise since it is plastic and is rubbing on the chain. I think a metal one would have been much better or at least increase the distance between it and the chain. Kind of annoying and I have not figured out how to fix it. Besides that it is a great deal for such a fast bike.

Sam, those glasses are perfect for you.

brighton dude says:

Sam is very likeable and certainly knows his stuff.

Rick Mayer says:

Keen to hear what you think of the Riese & Müller Cruiser

Michigan Mister says:

another “dumbest” question Court, when you start peddling to get the bike going, can you just stop and let the motor do all the work for miles? (very bad hips)

Ivans Bikes says:

Love the video and the channel. Subbed to support and follow. Keep up the good work. Cheers!

J.T. Seusoff says:

Sam really seems like a nice guy, and I appreciate him not just upselling and lavishing praise, but also talking about faults with a product he’s selling.

ForbinColossus says:

Wiggly stem is inexcusable! It will cause you worry and lack of confidence. Rigidity is very important in a handlebar stem. The regular quill stem design offers plenty of height and reach possibilities if you shop for what fits your body. My 2 cents.

John Marshall says:

Got my E.G. Maui from Sam about 2 years ago, love it. Ride along the beach trail in Huntington Beach couple times a week. Great fun. Only down side is too many broken spokes in rear wheel.
