Cheap introduction to the world of ebikes with local support if you get a problem. As mentioned, single speed so you might struggle on hills, but flattish terrain and short range it'll do the job. If you catch the bug (you will) selling it on should get you most of your money back
M1sterDeeds02/07/2019 17:59

Top speed?


Depends. Uphill you'll need to push, so 3mph. Off a cliff perhaps 120.

Single speed ruins it for me
You won't have to do tricks to impress on this...

can you hack it to increase the speed ?

24v is poor. Not much more powerful than a kids ride on car.

These are rubbish on anything more than a very slight incline
Could you fit a gears on this and would the increased pedal power speed make the electric motor work harder and faster?

Thanks, with that you have saved me an additional 10% off this bike purchase. 🔥
Just as cheap ordinary bikes are adequate for undemanding use in town such as trips to the shops or to school, so cheap electric bikes have their place too for similar rides. No point paying lots of cash for pootling around, and on short trips you'll get there nearly as fast on a cheap bike as an expensive one.

Its a hub motor. So no. What you want is a crank motor, which work in conjunction with pedalling and are a hell of a lot better, especially on hills which is why most want an electric bike.

This is like trying to pull away in a car in 4th gear. Great on flats where you're going quickly, wont move you up a 5% incline alone. However its assistance is limited to 15mph which is incredibly slow and imo dangerous on some main roads so its sole advantage is lost.

OK, as someone who had a near identical one with 5 gears from a deal on here for £249, around 20-22 pedaling like a maniac and being knackered after30s as the electric motor switched off after 16mph and you're trying to push a 20kg bike on small wheels along.
12-15 is more suited, but its sloooow when you have a white man up yer chuff and you have to drive in the gutter.

You'll soon be wanting a Bafang motor, which is what I did. Now traffic holds me up

Budget? Happy to self build? If you already have a suitable bike, eg a hybrid with disc brakes then self build with a crank motor. Bafang and others do road legal models which are supposed to be decent. Or you can go the 'fun' but not legal at all route

Yeah, just need a motor kit and battery. And probably bike tools. I know nothing about bikes but it took me 2 hours to fit a bbs02 motor and solder battery connections as I was watching youtube videos as I went along

But I thought electric motors had all the torque available from zero rpm anyway?
You won't get any more power out of crank motor of the same power output, just because you have gears surely?
And anyway, all (Legal) ebikes have to be limited to 15mph anyway,

Thanks thats very interesting. Just been looking into it, I do not have a mountain bike as yet but that will change now I know I can convert one, Can I ask where you brought motor from and what battery you used?

They do, but think of it as a single gear. When you pedal away in a high gear its really hard, but the same effort in same gear when you're already moving quickly and you'll zip along. Similarly a really low gear you'll move off the line quickly but not be able to move faster than walking pace for the same energy input. Select the wrong gear on a crank driven motor youll have the same issue, but thats the benefit of it- you can select a low gear to;get you moving, and still change to a high gear to take advantage of that toque

This is my battery and charger, bought a few years ago so its a lot cheaper now

I think i got the bafang motor off ebay. Youll need a programming cable too. Obviously make sure youre aware off all the risks.

A guy flew past me today on one of these . I was doing about 18 mph and he must of been doing 25 at least . Also he wasn't pedalling at all and just free wheeling all the way ..
Thanks guys, very interesting, just need to see what the best option is as you have showed me a rear wheel with motor and also a crank motor. Need to read the pros and cons
I'm 20 stone with not much money but wanting an ebike to start losing some weight and ride with my 4 year old who is just off the stabilisers. Any recommendations? I assume this is far from suitable?
Always wanted one of these to commute to the train station, but it will probably have battery stolen on the first day if I leave it there. Am I right?

The battery is removable, so sling it in your rucksack and take it with you. You can then charge it up at work lol. Small battery like this wont be more than a couple of kg
Better off with a road bike lol! This is rubbish

I started on an e-go hopper thingy electric bike, very unfit and 5 mile commute. Started off a couple of days a week (still hard work) and progressed to 5 days, then standard bike all the way to 5 days commute for 90% of the year. Lost 10kg, massively fitter and commuting with ease. The electric bike can give you the bug then you can progress as much as you want. I would have never done it without the crap electric bike to start on.

Well that may have happened, but I very much doubt it was this bike. This bike will only assist up to 15mph.

For the price its not bad but as others have stated only 24v. Ideally 36v is better. The beast conversions that you see doing 25mph are usually running 48v setups and of course are illegal, not that the police have time to do anything about it.

Please don't ride it on the pavement.

Please don't ride it on the pavement.


Why? Genuine question. Are you referring to shared use pavements or normal pavements?
Do these bikes have a removable battery that you can take to charge at your leisure?

Also, how does the assist actually work? If you are pedalling as fast as you can does the assist still assist?
Batt is removable, as it is on most ebikes.
Motor will assist up until 15.5mph, then it will cut out and come back on when speed drops below 15.5mph.
