Amazon.com

Bicycles are a terrific mode of transportation, but sometimes you just need a little extra push while getting around town. Enter the iZip EzGo electric folding bicycle, which is equipped with a DC brushless geared hub motor and a plug-and-play 24-volt rechargeable battery. Far cleaner than gas-powered scooters or even hybrid cars, the EzGo will get you from point A to B in no time at all, but won't guzzle gas or belch pollutants in the process. The battery offers a range of 18 to 25 miles per charge, so you can make it back and forth to the grocery store several times without running low on power. And once you're on the road, the EzGo boasts a top speed of 15 miles per hour (contingent on the rider weight)--plenty fast enough for most side streets. Is the market too far to walk but close enough that a car seems wasteful? Turn to the EzGo, which comes with a rack on the back for panniers.

The EzGo is powered by both the electric motor and good old-fashioned foot power, with an easy-to-use twist throttle helping propel you forward. The bike is also extremely comfortable thanks to the GS comfort suspension saddle. Perhaps the best feature, however, is the folding frame, which collapses into a compact footprint for easy transport and storage. The folding frame is ideal for families traveling to beach towns or users with small garages. Other features include a UL-listed Currie Smart Charger with an LED status display, alloy linear pull front brakes and DiaCompe band rear brakes, and adjustable alloy handlebars with Kraton grips.

She said charger light can still be green if the battery is not fully charge.

8 hour charge for less than 20 miles... -If there is one major thing I would change/upgrade, its the battery.

I received my bike and assembled it and carefully read the proper procedures for charging.

I bought the 2007 EZGo a month ago and have been using it about 3x per week since then to commute to my office. It's a gas (no pun intended). Since I don't like arriving all sweaty to work, I save the pedalling for the ride home and use throttle power only on my way to the office, which takes about 30 minutes for a gentle, mostly on the sidewalk, 4-mile ride. Even though it's still got plenty of juice left in the battery - certainly enough to get me home again - I still take the charger with me to work so I can fully recharge it before heading home (I also charge it when I get back home). After a 4-mile ride, it fully recharges in only about 2-3 hours. I LOVE this little bike and look forward to riding it every time. The tires are tiny at only 16", and there are no gears, so you're not going to go very fast on pedal power only but, add the throttle, and you can cruise along at a respectable pace. Others in the bike lane will fly by you, however, so if your ego has a problem with that, this isn't the bike for you. But I'll trade speed for portability anyday, which this bike has in spades. The throttle-assist is also great for any uphill portions of the ride. The bike arrives only partly assembled so, if you're not mechanically inclined (which I'm not), be prepared to have some help standing by (which I did). Also, once assembled, it's a good idea - and worth the extra money - to take it to a bike shop so that they can check it out before you take it on the road. I'm very happy with my purchase and would have given it 4.5 stars if I could have. I've added a bell, head and tail lights, a good lock and two rear folding baskets and I'm set for small shopping trips and errands (nothing too heavy, mind you).Read more ›

Amazon delivered the bike very fast and in brand new condition with no damage to the box. It took less than an hour to assemble the bike. When I started to charge the battery charger light was green (as per the manual/label) indicating battery is full but charged it for 4 hours anyway. No change in green light. Placed the battery on the bike to see if there is any charge. Nothing.

Called the company Izip. Their rep was rather rude and told me to read the manual. She said charger light can still be green if the battery is not fully charge. She said you have to rely on "the clock" to make sure it is charged. Told me to charge for 24 hours and then try again. If still no charge "condition the battery" which is supposed to take 3-5 days (charge/discharge cycle)

After 24 hours charging when there was no charge in the battery again I called the company again, this time the rep was less rude. But still did not accept the battery and or charger is dead on arrival. Asked me to charge it again and go buy a volt-meter to check the voltage of the charger and the battery. Said if charger has at least 24v then battery must be defective. But if battery is defective why does the charger indicate full charge=green light? It might be the case that both of them are defective. Second rep said after I buy volt meter and check voltage I should call them to have the battery and/or charger replaced. (So after having the brand new bike for 3 days without being able to use it I might be told by the manufacturer if its brand new part are defective!)

Their policy: customer pays for shipping of the replacement part. Ground shipping of new battery/charger from California to NYC will take at least a week at my own expense.

I just received my IZip EzGo from UPS. Box was in good condition. The bike was also in great condition. The bike comes partially assembled so, there is a bit of building involved. Easy to build. There are two things you have to do that the directions really do not explain well. First in order to install the front wheel you must release the front brakes. Second when you install the handle bar assembly it can only go in one way. There are grooves inside the locking shaft that need to match up. The directions are not to clear. But most people can figure it out. Make sure you read the piece of paper that has the directions on how to install the pedals. Once your bike is assembled charge the battery FULLY. I ride my IZip to work and around town. I live in Florida where it can get hot during the summer months so, I don't like to get sweaty on my way to work and I can say that I don't come into work hot and sweaty anymore. Yeah. At full speed it only takes me five minutes to get to work which is 1.4 miles away from my home. It took me ten minutes on a regular gear bike going 9-10 miles an hour provided I didn't have a head wind. So far I made the right choice by buying the Izip Ezgo and buying it from amazon the shipping charge was only $5.00. So if your thinking about an electric bike just to scoot around town the IZip is for you. And just remember all the gas you will be saving not to mention less CO2 emission. It's a win win. Hope this helps.

I can't currently drive my car due to a medical condition. I needed something to get around on (apparently not even supposed to operate a moped but that's stupid florida law for you) and this seemed to be the only option that didn't require any type of operator's permit. Federal law limits this sort of bike to 20 mph maximum speed. I was told that currie makes good bikes, I priced them locally and they were a bit high I thought so I started looking on the net and found amazon's price a lot lower than what others and shops were selling it for. I got the bike last thursday, it was mostly assembled all I had to do was attach the pedals and the riser off the fork/handlebars and put the front tire on, not much at all but the instructions that come with the bike were not made for a novice.

First I couldn't figure out how to release the front brake so I could mount the tire (you pull up on the black metal piece to release it) then I couldn't figure out how to tighten the riser off the fork (you have to open the folding joint and the hex screw is hidden inside there)...the rest wasn't bad. The third problem (same one I have with all bikes) is that I'm only 5 feet tall and the seat was way too high for me even all the way down, every time I stopped I nearly dumped the bike over. The solution to that was to have a friend cut about an inch and a half off the end of the seat tube and then to also loosen the seat screws under the seat and tip the front down a little bit to make it easier to get on; between these two fixes I can now deal with stopping without dumping the bike every time.
