I have done what they said to "charge" them and they have never worked.

I think it is only a matter of time more people knew how fun and practical an electric bike like this can be.

Even if you use the electric motor you still have to move the pedals a little.

I shopped for an electric bike for about six months and considering many brands. I finally decided on the 2007 iZip Street Enlightened Hybrid Electric Bicycle. I chose the bike because it looks very sleek (compared to other electric bikes) with NiMH batteries concealed inside the frame. I have received positive comments on the styling and color of the bike from people who don't even realize it's electric. The maker of the bicycle, Currie Technologies, has been making (and improving on) electric scooters and bicycles for many years, so this lent confidence to my decision from a warranty standpoint.

The bike weighs in at a hefty 48 pounds, which is not as heavy as you might think for having batteries, an inverter and an electric motor. Despite the 48 pound weight, the balance and weight distribution are excellent for an electric bike. I have to remind myself to be careful because the bike feels much lighter when it is being ridden.

Range is excellent - last time I rode the bike for 2+ hours, thinking I might drain the battery, but it was still going strong at the end of the ride. This included a good bit of riding up and down hills, including a monster hill going from 500 feet above sea level to 1100 feet above sea level. Of course the ride was much more enjoyable than that of a non-electric bicycle because you don't have to suffer going up hills. Using the assistance will give you the option of having a longer workout while being able to keep your heart rate in a reasonable range for healthy exercise.

The electric motor is not the most powerful one available on the market, maxing out on assistance at 18 mph. Keep in mind most electric bikes are top speed-limited to 20 MPH to keep them from being considered a moped (licensing, registration insurance, etc).

I bought this IZIP E-Bike because it looks cool and the battery is hidden in the frame. You can ride it like any other bicycle without useing the power assist. I use the power assinst only if i ran out of muscle power or if i have to go uphill. Even if you use the electric motor you still have to move the pedals a little. I like that, because you still get a workout even with power assist turned on.

I'm a healthy 42 years old man. Now you may wonder why i bought a power assist bike. The reason is i take the bike now for longer distances than before. I start of by muscle power only and i always know if i run out of muscle energy i can have the e-motor support me to some degree.

What i like is that the battery recharges in just 2 hours with the smart charger. You can visit a friend 30 miles away with the IZIP bike and take the charger with you to recharge it at your friends house for the ride back.

This bike is fun to ride. Every one who tried my IZIP came back with a smile on his/her face.

I gave it just 4 stars because the battery electric system doesn't recharge if you go downhill or if you brake. The Bionix system does that and regenerates power that way to extent the range of their bikes. Well...the IZIP does not regernerate any power. Anyway it is not hard to plug it in and recharge it.

I like the bike and i have fun using it. I paid $ 1300 shipping included.

Assembling the bike wasn't to easy. I'm lucky that i'm a mechanic, because adjusting the brakes and the shifting system takes some skills.

Even $ 1300 for the bike was $ 200 of retail, it is still not inexpensive.

Some of the bikes parts (seat, pedals, tires) make a cheap impression.

Brakes and shifting gears is fine.

That bike brought the fun of bicycling back to me. Thanks IZIP guys !!!

Bought the bike, never worked as promised. Customer service from company - Currie Technologies - has been horrible to non existent. I finally bought new batteries in January. I have done what they said to "charge" them and they have never worked. They will not refund money, or even return phone calls. Stay away from this product.

I've had this bike for about 1 month. I currently use it to ride to and from school in an east coast, dense urban, city. My commute is about 4 miles each way. While this bike is advertised as having a range of 20+ miles, I doubt it can really get 12+ miles. After my commute of roughly 8 miles, the bike battery gauge indicates that the battery is near empty (i.e., when the battery is full, 5 L.E.D's are lit, and when the battery is near empty, only 1 L.E.D. remains lit and it starts to flash). I don't think this lack of range is due to my weight; I'm 160lbs - also, I pedal normally throughout the bike ride. There is of course the chance that my factory installed battery is sub-par, but I'm not really sure how to test that.

Otherwise, I really don't have any regrets for purchasing this e-bike. It has made my commute significantly more pleasurable.
