This is a great bike for the money. It has allot of power and rides well, also a good looking mountain and road bike!
Great bike for the price - the only improvement I'd suggest is making the charge port and connector larger with a positive alignment pin (it is tricky to plug in).
This bike exceeded my expectations. The Power Assist levels (1-5) are great, the bike gets me up to 24 mph in Pedal Assist level 5 with almost no effort. It's way stronger and faster than I anticipated. The color LCD is perfect and shows the battery level and has an odometer and PA levels. The throttle will make the bike get to 20 mph without any pedaling, but I prefer to use the Pedal Assist. I highly recommend this bike to anyone considering an Ebike.
Overall this bike is an excellent value. One would be hard pressed at the writing of this review to find a bike with these features at this price point. The battery size tires, wheels and fork are all very nice. However, you may want to upgrade a few items. The Seat is not very comfortable. I would have preferred a more unisex shaped seat. The throttle is pretty much on or off and overall lacks a dynamic range that one might find on a more expensive set up. The bike has a forward leaning position, which I did not care for, but this was easily remedied by replacing the handle bar stem with a a shorter one. The motor lacks torque in comparison to a 85nm or greater and much more expensive motor. Again, for the price this is still a good buy. The gearing of transmission is more akin to a road/adventure bike and I found myself wishing for a lower gear to get steep inclines. The brakes are my least favorite part of this bike set up and needed quite a bit of adjusting to be safe. I'm still undecided as to whether I will upgrade the brakes as of yet, but have been considering it.
Well packed and EZ build if you have any bicycling knowledge. The seat is marginal, the grips are horrible, the drive train is a bit clunky but that is to be expected when buying a bike that has low end components. I had to go online to find out the operation of the control unit (ie-how to turn on light, how to reset trip odometer, how to adjust readout brightness, etc). No operating instructions were shipped withthe bike. Power is adequate although the rear hub motor is a bit noisy. Mechanical brakes work well once they are bedded in and adjusted. PAS works well as does throttle. Do check each and every nut, bolt and spoke after a couple dozen miles, several have loosened up.
The Kenda short knobby tires do well in hardpack to gravel off road trails but really howl on the street. IMHO, the gearing (52T chair ring) is too big unless you strictly road ride on some fairly flat roads. I have since switched to a 44T chainring and find it much more useable in my hilly area but my top speed drops to around 25 MPH using PAS 5 and peddling hard. The suspension fork does work fairly well but don't expect a super cushy ride one would expect on a high end fork.
A minor gripe would be that a standard Polar insulated waterbottle won't fit under the top tube, its about 3/4" too tall. Shorter bottles up to 32oz do fit but just barely. Who cares if you have a Camelback right LOL.
Overall, Im pretty satisfied with the bike, the price was a bit high but reasonable in today's market.
