This bike is a thrill to ride
on September 25, 2013
Be careful to maximize tire pressure BEFORE the first ride. I blew a tube on a killer pothole riding at night.
The bike shop replaced the tube. They said the tube was high quality but they put in a thicker tube and pumped it up to 65 psi.
They also remarked about the high quality of this bike and didn't even wince at the $1000.00 price tag.
This bike is high quality and American made. It is worth paying more for NON-CHINESE crap.
Personally I think this bike is sold below market value for it's high quality. It has shocks in the seat and front fork shocks.
It also has a front disk brake.
The battery was so light in the box, I thought they forgot the battery. I haven't run it at distance yet I've owned it for two weeks.
I can out-run a fast dog on flat ground with a slight tailwind, and I'm 210 pounds, 6 feet tall.
This bike is great for night riding with it's built in LED high power tail-light. You only need a good headlight and your ready to go.
I took my time and set this bike up in about 15 minutes (out of box).
It feels very light to me, and I'm in my 50's. With the battery pack you can ride like you were a kid again (but easier).
E-bikes come and go but I think this manufacturer is here to stay and keep their prices low to gain market share.
Someday we will all be riding E-bikes as fossil fuels diminish and become more expensive.
This aluminum bike will never rust and should last a lifetime. Just don't jump curbs with it or hit really bad potholes.
I haven't tested the range for more than 4 miles yet but I'll try to keep updating as time goes on. The battery is slightly awkward to slide in and out because the bike tends to want to roll back when you pull it. It would be an improvement if prodeco could make the battery pull up instead of backwards or at least
make it less sticky when you pull. I still love this bike.
