Have you always wanted to climb the mountains of Mars? ...but now you're over the hill?
Then come to Ebay and buy this bike. £400 saving. So don't let life pass you buy. For the memory of a lifetime. Call Rekall I think

I bought the G-Tech bike last year, the City version though and have cycled many miles on it. On average i get about 23 miles from a battery but then i am heavier than they recommend for them so will get less than the 30 they advertise. The bike has got me out cycling when it is really windy and i would normally think twice. You can do a steady 13mph comfortably.
If anyone has any questions just shout. I am really impressed with mine.

totally agree, it's why I always mention a washboard on deals for washing machines, indentured servitude as a fitness alternative to agricultural equipment or crawling instead of modern mobility aids but older people naturally can make u their own minds.

Nonsense. You clearly haven't ridden an ebike. You have to work for it to move! Takes the intensity out of those horrible hills and makes the ride pleasurable. Ensures you get to work without needing a shower but having to put effort in. Cuts out above 15mph as it has to by law. Excellent for commuting.

Single speed and V-brakes, I'll give it a miss
Review here:

Warranty is one year on these customer returns. In exchange for a hefty £400 discount that seems reasonable.But read the review and make sure this is the bike you want.

Nothing wrong with v-brakes for most purposes.

Single speed is mitigated by the motor which means you don't need lower gears to get it started.
However, it may limit the hills you can climb (not sure it'd make it up those mountains on Mars) and you won't be going that fast.
If you let the battery die it'll be hard work compared to a normal bike.
How many batteries will I need to exceed the escape velocity of Earth? I fancy myself as a bit of an Elon Musk but on the cheap.I've just been in B&M stores and they had a cracking deal on 20 alkaline batteries for a fiver so it's one small step closer for bicycle commuter.
I like the frame design, looks a like a good hybrid 😗

Alas the Tsiolkovsky rocket equation, tells us that even if you ejected your Duracells as they got used up, no battery has a high enough energy density to make your dreams fly.

The Mercedes AA class is what you need

videoman.gr/en/…605
Just wondering where these are based given the fact that the ads on telly quote prices in parnds!?!
I got one one trial and there's a lot to like. What I didn't like was the one size fits all frame, which was too big for me. I certainly wouldn't want the ladies version. Also, the belt drive squeaks and can't be lubricated.

Go on then!
I got one after my Carrera electric bike which kept cutting out. It’s lighter and faster than the Carrera, you get up hills more comfortably and average a higher speed because it is light.

just get a suspension seatpost

Nothing wrong with V-brakes - except they wear out the alloy rims, in this case including the expensive rear wheel (or you have to pay extra for changing the rim alone).

Single speed most likely (not sure) means low ratio limiting your ability to ride faster.

hotukdeals.com/dea…688 - this one cost me ~£750 (with some jumping through hoops) and has hydraulic disk breaks and 7 speeds.

And I don't see any information on Gtech's battery capacity to compare.

That's alot of money for a bike. Not even an ebike

This is arguable.
Personally, I disagree.
As the assisted speed is limited by ~17mph, most of time you ride without any assistance and use it only when riding against strong wind or steep uphill. Also when starting, that is very useful assistance on roundabouts and junctions, if you have to stop.

Interesting I also have the carerra that cuts out, they ll seem to! Suntour garbage. Its only the lack of gears that put me off this for my short but hilly commute.

I live in a real hilly place and I find it fine, it’s actually easier going up hill as it doesn’t have the massive weight.

The Motor is your Gear anyways, but I got mine when they offered a free extra battery at Christmas. So I just swap out batteries each day and constantly have one on charge.

Epic, makes a BBS HD look sluggish!

Decent price for what you get, but I don't feel safe at 13mph, so I went for a self build with more power which means I can keep up with traffic, especially on hills.
OOS but such a good deal
They also have new bikes for £750. I can only assume they have new models coming, or are getting out of the bike business.

Would have made an interesting speed cam photo had the one he passed circa 11 mins triggered. Would be a fun bike to use just for a one time overtake of a serious roadie group whilst waving cheerily...

I've ridden two eBikes (costing £700 and 2k) and wouldn't rate either, for the simple reason that if you're a good cyclist most of the time you'll be out of the assistance range, and working harder to due to the weight etc.. You do see the benefit on hills and on windy days, but for the money you could get a seriously good 'normal' bike, which will be easier to ride most of the time.

Now if they didn't cut out at 15mph...

Personally in the coming years I would consider an electric road bike that was'nt too heavy but could give some assistance up the harder hills (to stop the heart rate getting too high) so I could still take place in cycle club group rides. Hopefuly though I am a quite a few years away from this unless my knee degrades faster than I am hoping it will....

Could it not be lubricated with Silicone spray or car fan belt anti squeak stuff?

If I recal correctly, the supplied instructions stated that no lubricant could be used on the drive belt.
