Great bike at an affordable price
This is my first e-bike and seems perfect for the first time. There was a little bit of delay in the arrival which is normal given the recent shortages in the automobile sector. The packaging was great and it arrived without any defects.
Assembly was not very difficult though the instructions part is certainly an area to improve. Step-by-step video and better written instructions would be very helpful for some people. The bike came with headlight, kickstand and a bell. Since the bike has a unique requirement of rear rack, it would be great if they package that as well.
I took the bike for 14 miles as the first ride. The acceleration was quick. I was going to the work and wanted a greater speed so mostly used on pedal assist level 3. The bike did well. There was fair amount of uphill and downhill on the way and the bike maintained a good speed. I was able to use the cruise control and in fact didn't use the throttle very much. I really like the regeneration part. It allows you to go farther. The battery level does get a little confusing as you are not 100 per cent sure how far you can go with charge going up and down. I did a 28 mile round trip and had about 40 percent battery left. While I used the level 3 on my way to work, on my way back, I was on the pedal assist 2 which I think is the perfect position. It doesn't consume too much energy but still give you a speed of 15-18 mph. Overall a great bike at a very affordable price.
