Good Value for Money
Most of my use is off road where it performs well. Tyres provide adequate traction in all but the muddiest areas. I particularly like the fact that the battery is concealed as it makes cleaning much easier. The narrow handlebars are a bonus for getting through gaps. Although the bike is inevitably fairly heavy I generally use it without the electrical assist only engaging it when climbing hills and then I leave my younger and fitter friends behind! So far it has been totally reliable and the built in front light adds safety. All in all an effective, attractive and robust bike which is good value for money.
Heavy, but solid
I've had my bike for 5 months now. There was a slight issue with one of the parts, and while it wasn't quick to get customer service to handle the issue, they took care of it very well. I received the part and the bike worked great. In fact, I liked it so much, I bought my wife the same model a month late.
This is a good bike. It is light enough to just ride and the electric power is good. I have a few hundred miles on the electric motor and all seems good.
Best electric bike I tried thus far
Excellent electric bike. The pedal assist kicks in very smoothly. It has 9 levels. The battery lasts as per the level assist used. I used it for a month now, commuting to work, 32 miles each day. I feel I got the exercise, but also don't get exhausted by the end of the day thanks to the assist. The battery would be all drained out by the end of the day, so have to keep recharging it every night. Among all the other ebikes I tried, this is the one with the smoothest functioning of the electric motor, how it kicks in, how it stops the assist when we stop pedaling, how we can easily control the assist level in a granular way using thumb. And it is easily the best looking e-bike I have seen. People don't realize it is an e-bike unless told so. The batteries are hidden in the frame tube. At Costco price, this is a steal when compared with other similar quality ebikes. Cons : 1) Quite bulky when compared to normal bikes - need to get used to it. Though all e-bikes have similar weight 2) The frame is 1 size - more like an L in traditional bike sizes. I feel a little stretched for my size ( 5'10''). I normally use a medium sized bike. I wish they had more sizes. 3) Though the max speed is advertised as 20 mph, it is hard to reach / maintain. Can't find any other cons. I wish the speed was mire like 28 mph / 30 mph and the range - 50 miles. That would make it a very real mode of transport.
The future of fair weather transportation
Everything I’d hoped for and more. Smooth, silent and strong. A bit on the heavy side when toting up the stairs. Couldn’t find the serial number to register. A pleasure to flow over the country side, almost without effort. Highly recommended
