I got one myself and if i waited 4 more weeks could have saved £50 . It does boast a 30 mile range but only if peddle assist to be honest you get about 10 miles range with around a 6 hours charge without use of peddles . very sturdy but heavy total weight 62ilb (25kg) with battery as long as you over 14 years of age they are legal in the UK great buy . you can even fold them up and treat them as hand luggage saving you the time and effort of booking your cycle on the train in advance as you can treat it as hand luggage.

This has to be perilously close to being so heavy as to negate any benefit. 62lbs in weight? Better pray you don't drop it!

the back end of the saddle is about 10 inches 25cm so even if you have a large rear end i am sure this saddle wont disappear

and it will stay in storage longer ... i stopped cycling as i end up sweaty everywhere i go, and as for the environment im pretty sure i am more than offsetting that with having to shower and wash my sweaty cloths as i end up changing a lot more often.
dont have an electric bike , however if im sure it will last me 3 years without being stolen then i would surly go for one. in central london electric bikes are prime victims i guess

This weighs 62lbs. No 70yr olds are going to be moving it. I ride 10 miles each way on my commute. Once you're fit that's no problem and you don't get excessively sweaty.

Comes with an SLA Battery, these are the same technology as a car battery, no wonder the thing ways so much (SLA = Sealed Lead Acid).

Most electric bike batteries now use the same type of technology as your mobile, therefore much lighter and have better range (storage density).

I'd give this a miss.

If you buy this you may as well flush your money. The battery quality makes it worthless.

Had a ride on one of these a few weeks ago, was OK really, until I got to a speed bump. The motor caught on it and almost had me off, it's super-low to the ground.

I cycle to work, so does my father, i have bad joint problems, but im young so ill ride it out (excuse the pun) but my dad who had heart surgery could benefit from a little boost going up hills, and longer journeys, you still need to cycle with these, they arent an electric motorbike
#21
10mph seriously you'll have a sore erse time it takes to get home on it.
#22
You can modify these to about 24mph, great for Granny drag racing
#23
Do you need insurance for these?
#24
Can't to go 24mph without insurance, they are restricited for a reason...........

the electric motor shouldn’t be able to propel the bike when it’s travelling more than 15mph

Can you use the motor assist and pedal like a loon going downhill so you may just hit 35mph and trigger speed cameras?

There's a council coffer-filling, er, I mean "safety camera" device at the bottom of a long hill when I come home from work, so I'd love to get the big wobbly butt-cheeks out for that one!
#26
If you end up sweaty everywhere you cycle - lose some weight.
Worked for me.

Could be interesting to see if you could swap in a sturmey archer rear wheel into this, so you get gearing on the electric too.

The power assist should more than make up for the weight of the battery.

A lot of places will charge you £300 just for a lithium battery on it's own.

If you want to give electric bikes a go, this is probably worth a shot.

Thanks to commuting by push bike and having a dodgy knee, hoping to pick up my electric bike (which is sadly 250 miles away right now) to give my knee a chance to recover.

I doubt the speed camera will trigger unless going over 35mph, I very much doubt you could hit that sort of speed on one of these, even if it is a steep hill. The gearing will be low so it will be hard to add any speed to it through pedalling!

Not exactly the same, but it's rather snazzy.

15.5mph is the UK speed limit. The motor must disengage at this point, but there's a 10% margin, so some bikes allow up to 17mph before they cut out. You can still always pedal it faster if you want ;).

Also, must be limited to 200w continuous power, and must be torque sensor, and not throttle, engaging of the motor.

You can get a e-bike to go beyond these requirements, some exist that allow up to 28mph from shops, but then you need insurance, mot, license plate, helmet, etc, as it's then classed as something like a scooter/moped.

At least £300, the battery on mine costs £800 on it's own. But it is rather large (598wh). Last one was £500 (394wh).

I got one of these last year, pretty similar to this bike

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/e-co-electric-bike-249-99-sports-direct-delivered-1846286

EDIT - just noticed isn't the same, mine has 5 gears and 3 power modes.

Not too heavy either and range has never been a problem, i can ride the 2/3 mile journey to work, home for lunch and then back to work and home again and don't suffer any voltage drop.

I've added a thumb throttle (really easy to do) so i can move without peddling - along the a6 between milford and belper it will push me along nicely. I've also removed the speed sensor so on flats i can now shift at a decent pace - before when the motor cut out you could feel the weight after 15mph which doesn't feel that quick when on the bike. Saddle was a bit crap so have a nice comfy one now, and have a front and rear camera fitted.

I also added a bit of solder to the shunt, seems to help on hills. Might be able to add more but didn't want to risk blowing the controller.

Other mods I had planned were fitting powered lights rather than the standard aa ones and i was thinking of getting an indicator pod but I'm running out of space on the handle bars.

Best bit is up hills - I can overtake most of the lycra clad £1000 bike brigade, although on the level straights they used to blast past me (removing speed restriction helped a bit), but i can now arrive at work and not look like I've been sprinting a marathon.

I'm 5'10 weigh about 13 stone and not that fit, and due to the hills such as the one up in belper riding up it in a none assisted bike is a bitch and most people seem to end up pushing or wobbling all over the place.

Best £250 i ever spent.

sealed lead acids are crap. I've built multiple electric bikes and I use lifepo4 cells or lithium polymer. I had some panasonic lead acids last less than a year. supposed to be good for 300 charges. changed to a lifepo4 in 2008 and still using it, done over 8000 miles on it since.
#35
I have one but a mountain bike type (you can buy a kit and apply it to virtually any bicycle but I bought one ready to go) cost nearly 2x the price of this but has a 36v lithium battery. You have different levels of pedal assist, or you can use a throttle to go along unassisted (you can still pedal with throttle) My bike is still over 20kg with battery but not 25kg. I am also very heavy so I'm surprised it goes at all. You can still get good exercise even with pedal assist, you still have to pedal up slight/moderate hills with the throttle on. Or you can turn off all electric.

I've never tried a road bike before so can't compare, I expect I am too heavy for one, but I may get one eventually if I lose weight.
#36
I'm really tempted but need to find something that weighs the same so I can check to see how heavy it is!

LiFePo4 I hope.
Pricing up a LiPo system using cheap Hobby King batteries gets you a 12s (used for 48v) with 2664wh for just over £300 - getting on towards £400 if buying in the UK probably. Doesn't include BMS etc, of course.

If by 'snazzy' you mean 'an odd mismatch of pit bike and mountain bike with no significant advantage of either with a load of tat stuck on at way too high a price', sure ;)

I bought it too when it was at £250 last year. Superb bike. I'd be interested to know how you did the mods for throttle. Soldering shunt etc. is it really worth doing? I have a hill to climb on my commute. It's still a bit of a struggle on the hill but can definitely feel the assist. For flats it's brilliant.

Here's a thread on how i added the throttle.

http://www.pedelecs.co.uk/forum/threads/connecting-a-thumb-throttle.17285/

When the controller is out, you can add a little solder to the shunt - it looks like a bit of coat hanger wire. I just added about 1/4 from memory (i didn't make a post on soldering the shunt or removing speed limit as no one seemed to care!). Doesn't matter where you add it really as long as no more than 1/3 is covered. If you have the right tools you could probably measure the current pulled to make it accurate - either remove the brake sensing wire, or block the wheel from turning and with the throttle turn it to full and measure the current. I don't think it was a 20a fuse though which is why i didn't go mad.
