I've ridden Juiced bikes a number of times and been impressed with them, if not their rat's nest of wires. No experience with the M2; both have their proponents here. Also, look at electricbikereview.

Would you care to elaborate some ??? Also either of these bikes are not good in your opinion , so what's a good bike in the $2,500 price range .

If you have $2500 to spend, the market has some good bikes and the OEM companies (Haibike, Trek, Yamaha, ....) will have models in several sizes, so at 6'2" you'll have a better fitting bike. Probably need to confine yourself to hardtails, and get "last season's model". My Yamaha SDURO, which listed about $2500 (but I paid a lot less), has worked well, although for some reason I like my BBS02-equipped DIY better..

Both brands offer fantastic value but have serious liabilities as well. M2S is a one man operation, and you typically have to pre-order to minimize the owner's risk. Other potential issues involve inclusion of a cadence rather than torque sensor. I dislike the ride characteristics of cadence sensors. Power can come on very suddenly and does not increase at all as you pedal harder. Depending on how many magnets, there may be a brief delay in power or cut off in power.

Juiced offers bikes with torque sensors, but many buyers report problems with power cut out as the battery disconnects. Buyers report that they're using zip ties or velcroing the battery to keep it in place. This is a deal breaker for me.

I'm not crazy about either brand. Chances are you won't have problems with either company. But if you do...
