  • Question: I'm wondering if the extra fat tires will be a problem on smooth pavement where I'll be doing most of my riding, is it smooth and quiet?
  • Answer: You will want something that has traction for good stops, and bite to fill in the gaps on streets and sidewalks… quiet enough… you want skinny tires, you will get less support and tracktion

  • Answer: Press and hold the plus button down for one second to switch on your headlight and then again to turn it off


  • Question: Who is the manufacturer of the hydronic breaks?
  • Answer:The brand is Logan.


  • Question: Anyone purchase an extra battery for long trips? Expensive I see but is it easy to switch and worth the investment?
  • Answer: The battery is very easy to remove and replace. You’ll need to carry your key with you. But I have thought about buying a second battery, but they are quite pricey. I recently did a 30 mile ride using mostly level 1 and 2. And only used 25% of the battery. So depending on how much “assist” you use. I’m thinking I can easily get 70 miles out of the battery with the level of assist I have been using

For more details, please check the frame size chart on our product page or contact our service support for details. Recommended weight limit is 300 lbs. Thank you.


  • I accidentally noticed a menu of items including locking (?) on the controls. I haven’t had it long and know the basic concepts but the menu is not listed in the instructions. Where can I find menu subjects and instructions?
