Even with no gears it still achieves around a 30 mile range with its special design mid mount reduced torque motor arrangement however i do appreciate it will be heavy to lift into a cars boot or on and off the train!

I'm sure I've seen you on a shopping channel, you were telling people about a pc with a massive 40gb hard drive

... I can find a lot of faults with this including the fact it only gets 5 star reviews on the manufacturers website.

Very top heavy with a very low center of gravity, motor and drive chain look exposed just a couple of inches off the ground without even a chain guard - and no gears. Surely gears for the human on board would make pedal assist more efficient thus extending the range of the battery? The shock absorber on it rings alarm bells too - could that just be decorative with no real function?

With VAT and shipping it also costs £387.80.

While I agree with you, I think you're missing the point, at £300 this is very cheap (not many around that are much less than £600) and if that brings it within peoples' reach, so what if it doesn't have bells & whistles? You get what you pay for but you can only pay what you can afford so on that basis this looks like a deal to me.

The purpose of this site is to get more than you pay for :)

i bought some low fat lard from the same channel... it also had no added sugar so was extremely healthy.

so... ride to the downward slope (as long as the brakes work or you have an onboard anchor)...

think you're missing the point... a 'hotukdeal' is a reduction in the normal price of a specific item, not a low end generic brand... else the site would be stuffed full of 'value' beans and own brand, designed with a potato print logo or knock-off sonee, nokeea or moto geeeee.. now, find an electric brompton (or equivalent) for 300 and you'll need asbestos cycling shorts for the hotness....

incidentally, i once bought a waterproof kassio watch in egypt that was waterproof to a depth of 30mm...

How can it be top heavy if it has got a very low centre of gravity? I assume you mean High centre of gravity, although it doesn't look like it is to me, just plain heavy. Otherwise I agree.

I see they've positioned the bulky battery pack as low as possible, so I take it, it's not a Lithium pack, I'd guess more likely to be a very heavy sealed lead acid battery.

That low slung motor and its drive chain and bearings are going to be exposed to an awful lot of water and muck (and salt in winter) from the road, so it better be really well waterproofed.

Why buy one of these when you can often get a hopper for only about 10% more:- http://www.tesco.com/direct/hopper-shopper-electric-bike-blue/761-4756.prd?pageLevel=&skuId=761-4756

No, the bike uses a 12Ah Gel pack battery better and more resilient than old sealed lead acid. with a more powerful battery than the Tesco one you mention the need for gears becomes less necessary the manufacturer states it will climb most hills easily with a little pedalling to assist. The other advantage of no gears is maintenance is simpler just keep it clean and oil the chain just like with most bikes. I stand by my belief, this is a good buy and hotter than that tesco thing with a better range better battery and better build quality from dillinger bikes....

Hot deal all day long :-P

As far as I'm aware, the usable capacity of lead acid batteries, gel included is much less of the stated capacity than for Lithium batteries. A deep discharge lead acid seems to be 75% max - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_cycle_battery

So the differences in effective capacity aren't that great. The hopper (viking e-go) is lighter and the power of the motors are limited to 250W by legislation, the top speed is also limited.

The gears will come in very handy if the battery goes flat while you are out, and there's no reason they should be unreliable, but you can get a slightly cheaper single gear version if you really want. And the extra chain drive, plus the low slung motor on this will all need regular maintenance and cleaning.

I would also expect a hub drive motor to be more reliable than the chain drive motor on this.

Obviously I don't know what a centre of gravity is.

When are they going to design something that doesn't look like a special needs mobility device. I want a bike that looks like a proper bike.

I do not know please contact them through there website to confirm, I know they now launched a better version without the exposed motor that has 20" wheels and gears so that sounds more suitable for hills and heavier riders as it should be more stable with the larger wheels, I'm considering one myself they look quite good! http://dillengerelectricbikes.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/20-Cheetah-black-angle-etched-500x373.jpg
