abunda_amazon_reviews In 5 years of working as a bike messenger in Minneapolis, I've ridden all kinds of bikes, in all kinds of weather. I've ridden walmart mountain bikes, 80's classic steel road bikes, kitted out Treks, pretty much everything EXCEPT for fat tire bikes. Such wide tires always seemed... too much. No need for a bike that only makes itself worthwhile maybe two months out of the year, I thought. This bike changes that dynamic. It gives all the benefits without any of the negatives. If you don't want to read any further, just know this: this bike is fun as hell The Cons: 1. It's bad on ice. Very bad. Studded tires might solve the problem but after crashing the bike within 4 blocks of my first ride and bending the crank, I figure it's just safer to simply avoid all ice. 2. Both brake rotors were warped on arrival. Could have happened during shipping and I haven't talked to EGO about it yet, but I got the rear working and the front will just have to wait for some time in the shop. 3. The controls are basic, incredibly so. Basically 3 buttons and some LEDs. No way to change the top speed and no way to see what kind of power you're drawing from the motor. It works well enough though and I haven't had any real issues. 4. The first two assist settings are way too low. If you're at all like me you're only going to be using the highest level of assist. The Pros: 1. This bike is fun as hell. Did I already say that? It accelerates smoothly and quickly and even though I wish the top speed was a bit higher it's still enough to do the trick. 2. It's surprisingly well made. I've only used it for 2 weeks but I've put over 200 miles on it already and it seems basically good as new. The breaks are loose due to the warped rotors but it isn't a gamebreaker and the matte black finish seems to resist damage much better than I had expected. 3. The battery lasts for ~25 miles on the highest setting, although subzero temps seem to greatly diminish that. This was expected though so I can't complain. I'll probably end up ordering another battery since a busy day for me can sometimes hit 50+ miles. Everything's worked out well so far but the first day I get without a break I'll probably end up having to ride the bike like a peasant again for an hour or two while I charge the battery somewhere. It's just so damn nice knowing as long as I can keep turning the pedals the bike will take care of the rest of and take me practically anywhere. Big hill right before I get home? No problem. Packed and rutted snow? Piece of cake. Long story short, this bike should cost twice as much as it does. If it looks like fun to you, buy it. Oh and I almost forgot to mention: I'm 6'2" if I stretch with a 32" inseam and I'm definitely at the tall end for this bike. Anyone over 6'4" or under 5'8" will probably be pushing it. UPDATE: So I crashed this bike into the side of a bus at full speed a couple of weeks ago. Don't ask me why though cause I don't remember a damn thing. I broke my shoulder and a few ribs, collapsed a lung, and basically turned half my body into a horrible bruise. The BIKE however... is perfectly fine. I can't really figure it out. I don't remember the accident, but I've seen the camera footage from inside the bus, which means I saw myself ride this bike straight thru the front door of the bus and then rebound a good 10 feet. Me=wrecked Bike=fine. I mean it didn't even pop the front tire... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯;;Reviewed in the United States on January 8, 2017;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Quite the bike;;J.

I will update it appropriately to match my ownership experience in the next few months. I’ve been kicking the virtual tires of electric bikes for the better part of the year. Here is Seattle, we have a company that makes a very similar product that retails for $600 more than this bike that’s very popular and reliable. Ordering one online seemed dicey. When I saw that Amazon would ship it directly to my local bike store who would in turn assemble it, fit it to me and tune it for free, I decided to go for it. It arrived at the shop three days after I ordered it and when I called to arrange its assembly and pick up, the techs told me it was ready to go. I came to the shop a little sheepish since they sold high end name-brand road, mountain and $3600 dollar E-Bikes and they just had to assemble my Chinese knock-off one I ordered online. As the clerk rolled the Ecotric out, I asked him for his honest opinion, assuming that he’d tell me something along the lines of “well, you get what you pay for I guess”. I was pleasantly surprised when he told me that the owner of the shop had assembled mine and had been “test riding” it all afternoon. He assured me that it was surprisingly well built and that I was going to have a good time. Bonus-before I left the shop I was told to bring it back after the first 100 miles and they’d give it a free tune-up. The bike is surprising big, like motorcycle big. I’m 6-02, 230 and I had to lower the seat to ride it comfortably. Great news for you big riders out there. My wife is 5-06 and with the seat all the way down looks like a child on an adult bike. The finish, paint and welds seem to be of good quality, as are the brakes, pedals, cranks and gears. The motor is quiet and POWERFUL! At level five, you’re going 0- 21 mph pretty dang quick on levelish terrain. Especially if you’re using pedal assist. The motorcycle style throttle can be used independently-no peddling required. Super fun, but I’m sure it eats up the battery. Speaking of the battery, it locks in place and is easily removable with the key, a really nice anti-theft feature and great for charging in the house, although they include an extra cable extender should you need it for plugging in the bike in a garage. Also, not featured in the description but nice to know, the battery housing has a USB plug built in for on the go power while you travel. The display was another nice surprise. It’s backlit, for nighttime rides and includes a battery life indicator, MPH, bike odometer, trip odometer and number of charge cycle count. Little things worth noting- -This beast is heavy. Good to keep in mind if you live in a walk up or intend to take it places on a bike rack. -It’s gonna need fenders. Here in the wet PNW, these big tires are going to throw some mud and water up your backside without them. -the brakes are reversed from a normal bicycle to accomdate the throttle.
