Riese and Muller eBike Homage Review

The Homage electric bike model from European electric bike brand Riese and Muller is a very well considered electric city bike. Very few bikes are rated this high on the Tower eBike Score scale. It gets a 90 and even higher on it's specialty score when we omit our "comfort" and "universal" ratings. At 64 lbs this e-Bike is a little heavy but it's all done with quality parts. Note that this electric bicycle gets a score of only 4 our our low proprietary risk scale, which means it may be hard to find parts if Riese and Muller were to go out of business or stop supporting this specific model at some point in the future. read more »

They aren’t just in the e-bike niche, however. They make tons of different electric bikes and road-style regular bikes as well. They've got quite a big team over there.

Juiced labels it's CrossCurrent model as a "commuter bike". With it's flat end handlebars and downright positioning the CrossCurrent definitely feels and rides like a stereotypical road bike.

As a company Juiced scored low on our low proprietary risk as Juiced customers have had experience with parts shortages and relatively poor customer service. Overall, the Juiced CrossCurrent scored a 73 on our Tower ebike score giving it a very good eBike more »
