Another good point of the Ezip is its durability.

Range: The claim is that this bike has a range of 18-24 miles, but I don't think this is accurate.

Being and engineer, I have been more impressed with the simplicity of the drive.

Assembly: I've never assembled a bicycle before, but some assembly is required for the e-zip. I managed to put it together in about 3-4 hours, and someone with experience could probably do it in 1-2 hours. Some parts of the instructions aren't terribly clear, but not too much assembly is necessary. The electric components are already installed, so it's just a matter of putting together the handlebars, front wheel and brakes, and seat.

Range: The claim is that this bike has a range of 18-24 miles, but I don't think this is accurate. My bike will go about 13 miles before the engine appears to run out of energy. The battery indicator says that there's still almost half the energy left in the battery at that point, as there should be, but it acts as though it's run out of juice.

Fortunately my bike commute is just 13 miles, so I can manage with the reduced range. A couple of times when I haven't put as much effort into pedalling, it's run out of juice on me after just about 10 miles, and it's a tough bike to pedal without the electric motor going as it's so heavy. As long as I put some decent effort into pedalling and go a little easy on the throttle, it will get me the 13 miles. You actually don't want to go much further than that anyway, because sealed lead acid battery life is significantly reduced when the battery is discharged more than 80%.

Performance: On my regular mountain/road hybrid bike, my commute takes about an hour, averaging about 13 mph. On this electric bike, the commute takes about 50 minutes averaging about 15 mph. The ride takes significantly less energy, as the throttle makes pedalling much easier. Accelerating and climbing hills (and going against a headwind) in particular are a piece of cake in comparison.

Price under $400.00 online, shop around.

battery life great. Just rode it 10 miles to work and back on a low grade uphill and down. And it still had alot of power left. In less then a hour. And that is with stopping nd walking the bike across busy streets at the lights.

I am over the max weight level for the bike by 10 pounds, and had no trouble with power.

I am 5'11 and the bike isn't small for me.

Let the Boss take it for a spin and he looked like he was going a good 15+ miles an hour on it. Will have to use my gps on it to see how fast it really goes.

Overall love the bike and would buy another in a heartbeat.

I have had this bike for about a couple weeks and I am quite happy with it, especially considering that all other electric bikes I've seen were over $1000. I live 13.5 miles from work, and it is hilly. I am in decent shape, but on a regular bike, the trip exhausts me, I'm slow due to the hills, and I would need a shower upon getting to work. With the ebike, I still get some exercise, but I can keep my speed on the uphills over 14 or 15 mph and I don't get totally burnt out. I weigh 127 pounds, and the battery lasts 14 miles to work, with me putting in a decent effort - I am helping the motor by pedaling on the uphills enough to get tired, but not so tired that I can't bike home again. I take the battery off and charge it at work. A few times, it does seem like the battery is petering out right at the end, so based on how hilly my commute is (significantly), how much I weigh (127), and how much I'm willing to help the motor by pedaling (a decent amount), 14 or 15 miles is about the limit of the battery. So, in short, this is what I wanted it to do - allow me to ride to work in less than an hour (about 15 mph average), without getting totally exhausted.

My only complaints so far is that the bike is heavy (but then I knew it would be when I ordered), and also I don't find the handlebar grips to be very comfortable. They seem rough (including the shifter on the left) and not very padded. I wouldn't mind if it had one more higher gear - when I'm going downhill and the speed gets much over 20 mph, I can't really add any more speed by pedaling because the highest gear isn't high enough.

So, for the price, as an entry-level electric bike, I'm quite happy with it. It's a win win situation - I save gas, save the planet, get some exercise, and have fun.

I purchased the bike about a month ago. It was pretty easy to put together. It only took me about 30 minutes and I'm somewhat mechanically inclined. Changing a flat on the rear tire however is a whole different story! That took me a couple of hours to do. I would recmd putting "slime" in your tires so you wont have to change the tire for a minor flat. The bike rides great although it is heavy like others have said. I have a 1.2 mile commute to work but the area is extremely hilly. EXTREMELY. With the pedal assist engaged, I can easily get up the hills, but it definitely still gives you a good work out. Because of the hills (literally both ways) the range of the battery is greatly reduced. If I don't remember to charge the battery at work and ride home that evening, I can definitely tell by the end of my ride home. There may be a defect with the battery however as it has just recently stopped charging when plugged in. I am ordering a new battery because the one I have now will not hold a charge anymore - or at least as far as I can tell. Currie doesn't warranty the battery, so if yours goes, your'e on your own. All in all, it's a good bike, very solidly built, for the money. Keep in mind that most electric bikes start at 1000.
