So I ordered a brand new one from Amazon.com in PINK! Love it! At the time I purchased this baby it was only $799! I am shocked to see it for sale at the current price of over $1100! But not really surprised at that as I know I got a super deal. Other peddle assist electrics retail for over $2000 and they don't have ANY cargo space!
I put it together myself - I am mechanically inclined - and charged it up. I did expect it to go 25 miles on a charge as advertised but did not take the hills and weight of the rider into account with the first charge so it pooped out on me unexpectedly. Once I got used to the distance it would go and the type of hills it would climb - NO PROBLEM!!! With me on it, and climbing uphill (these are BIG HILLS - in fact it is ALL uphill to my house for 3-5 miles) 7-days a week - it will go a distance of 12 miles on a single charge. I charge it every other day and if I go a little farther on it - there are plenty of places to plug in while I am out paddling on the ocean, have dinner, see a movie, shop!
Speaking of shopping! I have fashioned saddle bags out of two Trader Joe's insulated grocery carriers (the squarish blue ones with the zipper) - I use small caribbeaners to clip the two inside handles together, open the seat trunk, and place the bags on either side with the clipped handles inside the trunk, load the bags, zip them, use another caribbeaner to clip the two outside handles and then close the seat down on them - VOILA! And the little bike hauls my big butt AND both big bags full of groceries up the hill to my house without a single problem! (I'm SURE I look rediculous!)
However, everywhere I go on my little electric gem with my pink helmet, I get smiles and waves and the occassional surprised jump as it makes no noise and I have been accused of sneaking up on people! Folks stop and ask about it, people at work are jealous because I have so much extra money that I am not spending on registration, insurance, gas, upkeep, as well as the extra cash incentive I get from my employer for using alternative transportation. (yes, I am getting PAID to ride this e-bike) People occassionally accuse me of riding illegally in the bike lane as they pass me on thier bicycle - lol! I don't care, I know that we legally go wherever the bicycles can go! I always have a smile on my face when I ride!
Why did I not give it 5 stars you ask? There are several reasons - The tail light burned out and I found that it was nearly impossible to find a replacement anywhere in town - in fact trying to figure out what kind of shop to take it to was a mystery - it's part bike and part scooter! It takes a "56V/10/5W BLT" tail light - which is a dual filiment bulb to work both the tail light and the brake light. I contacted the manufacturer and got a bit of a run around - customer service is NOT GOOD! So I plugged these numbers into the computer and came up with a number of sites in China! Wow! But finally found them on EBAY and bought 5 of them and it's a good thing I did! I have used two of them already!
I got really lucky when I tried to find someone to adjust my brakes - one bike shop owner told me that there is a bike shop in town that handles some really odd bicycles from all over the world. These young lads embraced the idea of taking care of me and it. They are really eco-conscious and willing to help - do a great job and don't charge an arm and a leg!
These are the reasons why it only got 4 stars! I admit that it would be much easier if manufactures would better support their products and I will do a better job of checking out the customer service aspect the next time I purchase ANYTHING.
There seems to be a mentality regarding many foreign based electronic manufacturing companies and that is "if it's broken, buy a new one!" I learned this when I worked for such a company in the customer service/repair department fielding phone calls and speaking with people who's electronic items where kept for MONTHS without ever being repaired. It started out as an American company (Fisher Corp) and was bought by a foreign company. Once that happened, the customer service went into the dumper and we were left without any reasonable explanation for it.
I also know that these manufacturers need to change their ways! The world view of electronic waste is changing and they need to become more responsible for it. One of the best ways to do that is to support the products they make by supplying parts and to provide adequate, friendly, accessible customer service.
I LOVE my e-bike and will ride it until it will no longer move - then I will find a more reliable company and purchase another. (or have my inventer-brother take it apart and fit it with better electronics!)
All in all - I think I have already gotten my money's worth out of it!
Followup...April 30, 2011
Everything still working great after five charges, charger goes from red to green when fully charged.
It takes about 6 hours to attain a full charge.
Have used scooter a few times to commute to my workplace which is 14 miles round trip.
With a full charge on the first leg, scooter will go 25-26mph and will go 24-25mph on the way back with some juice still remaining.
So far so good.
