I called customer service to request they send me the missing parts as well as a replacement battery and they said they could not.

I have been riding it daily for about six months now (over 500 miles so far), and am very happy with the bike.

[...]
It gets me the 9 mile round trip(about 20 to 25 mins each way ) back and forth to work easy. I am over the max weight limit by 8 pounds and it still does well. The 25 mins is on the way home all uphill grade and that is with stopping at traffic lights.

Behind the rear reflecter is a switch to change battery sides if you get an extra battery. The battery slides into the slot and and has 5 keys included to lock it into place, does not spark, as I heard happens to some of the other electric bikes when you plug them in.

Recharges in about 3 hours.
The picture is blue but the bike is black.
Pretty easy to put together, just the front wheel, handdle bars, seat and peddles. All electrical parts are already done for you.

The only thing I do not like about it is the seat while riding. It's hard.

All in all a good cheap bike, works well so far had it a month now. Using it more and more for short trips to the local store.

update 6/23/08

Did some GPS readings with the bike.
14mph uphill
17mph on flat

update 6/28/08

Lost some range. Checked tires, they were low (30psi). Filled to 60psi and range was back. Differance between Full/half and Half/empty after a ride. Used an airpump with a gage built in.

Passed Heavy traffic yesterday. Glad I don't have to deal with stop and go traffic anymore.

update 7/31/08 still working great. checking on replacement batteries, it's getting close to the 100 to 200 recharge/ 6 month life. lost 12 lbs just over the max weight now at 243 lbs.

4/15/09 Spring is here and ordered replacement battieries for my E-Zip sold here on amazn.com. Currie 12 Volt - 10 Amp Replacement Batteries (set of 2)

WRONG BATTERIES TOO BIG.

First of all, if I walked in to any discount chain and bought a bike of this quality, I would pay at least $150. So for the balance of $250, what do you get? For starters, you get an engine to take you where you want to go. Enthusiasts call this "pedal assist" and that is really what it is. You are not passive on the bike. Here's how it works: You pedal at the same time the engine works by bringing you up to ~15 MPH. On flat ground you will continue to engage the engine to keep your speed. At this point you feel a little like walking on the moving sidewalk in an airport; you are putting in the effort to stroll and you are getting out the speed of all-out power walking. Uphill the bike makes the strenuous a breeze. Again, uphill you are still pedaling, but it's a whole lot easier. Downhill the engine is useless because you are going faster than the engine can go. It continues to rev, but inconsequentially. I use the bike to go to work, every day. I use it on everyday errands as well. I even pull my two kids (over 100 lbs) in a stroller behind the bike. I've had people stare and throw comments my way that "Hey, you were going 25 MPH up a slight hill with two kids!" I don't let on that I've a bit of help. The battery plugs in using a three prong male input that looks like a low impedance mic end. On one charge the battery lasts varying amount dependant of tire pressure, number of hills, weight of rider, amount of pedal-assistance rider is providing, etc. I've never had a problem except when pulling the stroller after about 2 miles. The battery can be taken off the bike, weighing and feeling like a heavy briefcase, and brought inside to charge. Charging takes a couple of hours or so depending on how much juice you've used. The estimate of battery life that resonated with me is 6 months.Read more ›

Verified Purchase
Received the bike in good condition traveling across the country. Took just 20 minutes to assemble.
The bike is very heavy with the 20lb battery pack on one side. The torque on the bike is good for starting to ride, but I found it poor on the hills. Speed is about 17-18 miles on the flat. One needs to ensure that the tires are pumped to 60lbs as the speed and hill climbing is impacted. Worth checking the internet for forums discussing the ezip.
Putting a higher wattage motor can help with low speed and hill climbing. Some people have installed another 12v battery in series to increase the speed to 25mph. Distance is about 7 -10 miles per charge.

2012 update. The SLA batteries have finally gotten old so decided to get a new $130 (plus $60 postage) LIFEOP4 battery from China. The weight difference of 4Lbs versus the 15lbs of the Currie RMB pack is very noticeable. The new battery has the same 24V 10Ah specifications as the SLA batteries. The initial performance is the same as the SLA, but it holds the voltage better under load. Hill climbing is still poor so have ordered another LIFEPO4 pack to package in the old RMB case and will add a switch to parallel the batteries when more torque is required to climb hills, as there will be less voltage sag when heavy current draw is required. The bike is just for enjoyment so have enjoyed the experiences with electric assist. The bike has only required a new inner-tube that is puncture resistant.
