The SR Suntour NEX fork is e-bike-speci;c and
provided enough travel to dampen every bump
we found. We never used the built-in lockout.
The 500-watt motor provided
ample power for every ride
and every hill.
The front light was plenty powerful to let
others know we were there and actually provided some good light for seeing the road.
and the battery is semi-hidden in
the rack, if you even worry about
people noticing. It’s a good-looking,
comfortable bike with great range and
power, but may have too short of a front
triangle for taller riders.
Though there’s an option for an
off-road, knobby tire, we recommend
getting it with the hybrid road tire.
It’s a quieter, smoother ride that will
still let you ride in some gravel and
a capable mountain-type bike, we’d
recommend a more purpose-built
machine for that. As a versatile bike
that’s comfortable on commutes and
just for fun, we liked the Vicko. ■
