Worth every penny
on 29 June 2013
The bike arrived in good time and well ahead of schedule. my only criticism is, there is no tool included to assemble the bike. It was well packed and it took an old man of 65 an hour to assemble it on his own. The instructions are quite easy and straightforward to follow. Once assembled, I was quite surprised at its sturdy construction. It is extremely well made for this price range.
It is recommended to charge the battery for a minimum of 12 hours before first use and to continue with the 12 hour charge for the next two charges. After that, it can be charged until the charger indicator turns green. To preserve battery life, it is recommended to charge the battery after every ride and not to wait until the battery gets low.
The performance of the bike is first rate and quickly accelerates up to top speed. I use it mainly as a lazy man's bike and don't bother to pedal much although I will, when I get used to riding a bike again.
If you are interested in purchasing an electric bike, I am sure you will not be disappointed in its good looks, sturdy construction and excellent performance.
