As I've ridden it around town, I found that the shifting is a bit clumsy - even after numerous adjustments to the derallieur. I was also aware of the total weight when I purchased it - nearly 70 lbs when one battery is installed - and have come to the conclusion that it is NOT a bike an average person can easily ride around without frequently using the electric assist; it's really a tank (even compared with my Xtracycle loaded with 50 lbs of groceries). I also was sad to discover that my Sunlite pannier could not be attached to the non-battery side of the rear rack because the hooks (on panier) are not set wide enough apart to span the battery placement gap. Another everyday annoyance is the fact that there is no quick-release lever on the front wheel making it a pain if you need to remove the wheel (flat, transport, etc.).
Maybe I can overlook most of the above, but the real headaches came when I got a flat on the rear tire. There is nothing - in Currie's documentation or on their website - that gives any indication on how to remove the rear wheel when you need to replace a tube. I searched forums and everywhere else I could, and came learn that in order to remove the rear wheel, you have to REMOVE THE ENTIRE MOTOR ASSEMBLY - which is not a simple procedure.Read more ›
The bike is really heavy, 52 lbs without the battery and 65 pounds with it. Which means most of us will need another person to help lift it! I would recommend against it if you have to take up a flight of stairs to an apartment. So, go for it only if you can park this on street level.
Battery charger sometimes turns from Red to Green in less than the 6 hours recommended, doing this will leave you with a partially charged battery. I recommend leaving it in for at least 6 (or preferably 8) hours to ensure it is fully charged.
What could Curry have done better?
The handlebar grips are too small and not comfortable for long rides. I'm not sure there is a way to change them since the right grip works as an accelerator, but I will look into alternatives.
I didn't bother reading any reviews, I just put it in my shopping cart. The bike arrived a day early so I was very pleased with the delivery time. The box was in good shape when the UPS guy dropped it off. I opened the box up and found the bike had protective covers and bubble wrap on everything.
Nothing was damaged and all the parts came in 3 separate little boxes. The bike came mostly pre built so it took me half an hour to put the pedals, handlebars and front tire on. I thought it was cool that they included an allen wrench and open ended wrench so I could assemble the bike without tools of my own. I put some air in the tires and gave it a quick go around to make sure all the nuts, bolts and screws were tight.
I started charging the battery as soon as I could get it out of the box. It took 2 hours for the charging light to turn green. The labels say 6 - 8 hours charge time. I couldn't wait to take this thing out for a test ride.
First thing I noticed was the weight, with the battery this thing is a tank. It gave me a feeling that the bike was sturdy. The size of the motor was also reassuring, when I hit the throttle I expected to feel a boost and I did. 15 Mph is about right, I'm 130 pounds so the bike gets to full speed very quickly. The handle bar grips are a little too short so holding the throttle with your thumb and index finger could be tiring on a long ride.Read more ›

A little slower top speed and a little wimpier (top speed power) than I'd like but as good or better than models costing twice or more. Read morePublished on May 13, 2011 by Riley Brown
