Is the $500 Storm Electric Bike on Indiegogo a Good Deal?

http://electricbikereview.com/community/threads/say-hello-to-storm.1228/page-3#post-12740 People are asking themselves, “should I buy the Storm electric bike on Indiegogo.com?” and with a price of just $500 plus less than $194 shipping that’s a great question. In this video I discuss some of the considerations worth making before plunking down your hard earned money. What kind of performance can you expect from an electric bike like this? What are the risks of crowdfunding sites like Indie Go Go and Kickstarter? I hope this helps shed some light on the situation.

Hey 🙂 Very cool, you give reviews that are honest. Curious though, do you give the option to the companies as to whether to publish the review or not? ROFL. I have noticed your site being hard to reach at times. So I just go to your youtube page. Thanks for your honest reviews, Im in the market for one of these, and i dont make much money…. hence i need an e-bike. 🙂 Thats the nature of the e-bike market… it targets the folks with a certain income range… they like to think otherwise. So its that much more important that these companies keep the value of their products up.

Cort, I really like you reviews, very concise, level headed info and no stupid background music noise. Good going. I just put together a Franken-bike concoction (home built) and have watched many ebike videos. Yours are the best. It is interesting to see the variety of configurations. The ERB logo on the thumbnails to the right-makes it easy to notice one of your vids- cool.

hey there, my name is Chris. I’d love to have a chat about eBikes with you as I can see we are just about 1 mile away from one another! Let’s meet sometime next week, at Starbucks by CVS pharmacy, I can meet you there on my eBike I made, nothing really special 48v 10ah. I hope to hear from you soon!

Jeff Zekas says:

so, did the Storm ever get built? or did the indiegogo campaign fail to produce?

craig mc cauley says:

Very good! I want one!

Fellatio Belsen says:

Blah blah blah Camel Teeth blah. Get to the bike already!?

I appreciate your input. Helps VERY much! By the way, I know it’s a pain but you may want to blur out the license plates when doing shots when walking on side streets. Some people may not like them being seen. Moving on a big street is a different story. I would at least do it if one can read the plates if parked in a driveway.

tait nelson says:

hardly a review. and 18 min??? cmon man. and how many times do you need to say “steel frame, heavier than aluminum” wait till you get the bike. wasted my time

Chon Dominguez says:

Thanks for the info.

sputnic says:

Thanks great reviews , please point out to me something that would be a good starter bike for the lowest price without buying something thats not going to work.

JF R says:

u mentioned u’ve tested around 60 bikes & that around $1500 – $1600 is the lower end for a decent bike. which leads me to believe u’ve never tested an Xtreme Ebike. I have the XP-310 la which I now have about 1300 miles on and I’ve only had to fix a few Flats replace the brake pads and I put a softer shock on it because that used to come with a 9:50 so I changed it to a 750 much better. anyway that might cost me 800 it’s up to 9 something now they also have bikes with the same range and speed that are in the 500 to 550 range it does about 20 miles an hour would a 20 mile range and has pedal assist works great absolutely recommend it I would buy the exact same bike again in two years like I said 1300 miles I would absolutely buy another one

Everyone who didn’t get your bike, post a review on google for them and they become pretty responsive. Also, you are the lucky ones. The bike is a piece of rubbish. Battery lasts about 20 minutes, the bike weighs half a tonne so without it good luck peddling. Struggles with the smallest incline. My road bike it’s replacing is far nicer to ride. You got off lucky.

Allen Janes says:

thumbs up. thanks for sharing your knowledge. I am trying to find a kit for my KHS 1000 fat bike. Any suggestions?

How do you do a bike review without “RIDING IT”!?

MOUNTAINOUS says:

looks like a bernie voter. bet my life.

Ramon Quiray says:

blah blah blah! !!

Duncan Isle says:

It’s a great deal. I have had mine for a year this thing is the best. I get asked all the time where I got it. I love this and take it everywhere with me. it rocks Dummy!

snowmansid says:

Dire revue. I gave up half way.

Mark Niebauer says:

LI Batteries cost that much by themselves. I’m suspicious.

H Serene Warren says:

I already have one, and this is a bit out of date…but I learned a lot. Thank you. The information about the battery, keeping it between 20-80%, really valuable details (among others ). I just need to find out if it still holds true. This newbie needs to be hand fed the basics. Yay you!!!!
