Gates Carbon belt at this price, very nice
I have this. Love the bike

Best price I've ever seen so voted hot
Edited by: "willym2k" 30th Nov 2019
This is awesome the only downside (for me) really is the lack of disc brakes
looks like a good package at a sensible price...ebikes are the future for people who just want to get around conveniently minimising their impact on other people and the planet
Seems to be out of stock now anyway, but...
Single speed
Tiny battery
No disc brakes
Only real positive is the belt drive.

I'm not seeing much to justify this price myself - DIY is often cheaper, but in this case significantly cheaper I'd have thought for the same spec.

As an idea, my latest build got me a new torque sensing mid drive motor on a bike with 10 speed at the back, 700c hybrid with front suspension. With the smallest battery I've got (slightly smaller than this bike, but likely similar range at similar power levels if not better) it weighs in at 16.9kg and cost me £600 all in. About an hour's work on a 2017 Giant Roam 0 that's barely been used; which I was quite lucky was only a couple of miles away. Massively more capable bike overall for less money.

1) Most people don't want to build their own
2) This will have a 2 year warranty and is new
3) A carbon belt and single speed is much better for commuting
4) Cheap disc brakes are no better than good quality rim brakes
5) This doesn't look like an ebike, unlike some Frankenstein home made version
6) Personal opinion but hub drives are much more fun than mid drives. A mid-drive simply gives you more power in a 'normal' bike riding sense, but needs a lot of gear changing. A hub gives you that real 'push in the back feeling' and often means you don't have to change gear anywhere near as much.

Any chance of a picture of your handy work.

It's a genuinely interesting proposition.

Thanks
Here's a pic of our "homemade" ebike. Parts cost £460 inc. lights. (which are literally brilliant) 600w/hr battery, good for 50miles plus. Original bike cost £499 (Canondale Fast) and has had 4 years of good use prior to it's electric upgrade. We've done 500+ miles on it and we use it nearly everyday. In pic the Mrs is just off on 5 mile ride to get the Sunday paper, given the weather without ebike she may well hve used the car. Everyone thinks it was shop-built and I don't think it looks like "Frankenstein home made version".39214347-MOZbr.jpg39214347-g2zR1.jpg

Not much work to actually fit the motor to the existing bike - more like half an hour, but I faffed with it a bit, taking it off again and re-arranging cables etc.

This is the new one. It'll end up with the panniers etc.
Only been running it with the small battery so far - may at some point get it setup with a 52v/20ah or so battery to give a *significant* range.
This barely weighs more than the advertised bike, but is massively better in almost every way I'd say (apart from chain maintenance).
39216416-dYfdD.jpgYes, the chain gaurd is a bit redundant on there, but the standard bolts needed to go through two layers - I'll either replace or add some washers at some point. (Standard sprocket is 42t or 44t - I've got a 50t on there, though whether that's really needed is another matter.
I've also got a used EX1 cassete and mech to go on there at some point; 8 speed wide ratio (11-48) ebike specific which cost me £50 on ebay (rrp £500), but I doubt it's really needed - this bike isn't making mega power and the current 36t will still go up pretty much anything with the electric turned on I expect.
39216416-S4K15.jpg39216416-OJWEE.jpg


And this is the bike that I have been using:
Yes, this doesn't look so aesthetically pleasing - at some point I'll tidy it all up.
It's a full size folding hybrid with a 3 speed IGH on the back - plan is to keep this on the van for emergencies and for occasional use where folding helps.
At some point I may consider swapping it out for a smaller-wheeled folding bike, but I do really like having the big wheels, but that can go in the van without taking up TOO much space.

1) Most people however would like to get a the spec of a £2k new bike for a third of that price!
2) Nope, but claiming on warranties is often more hassle than it's worth and when you've ridden it 20 miles, it'll be just as new as mine.
3) I disagree - definitely subjective. I like gears, even when you've got electric assist. Carbon belt and an IGH - sure, but I'd take gears as a priority personally, even for cycling around pretty flat places.
4) Years ago I tried some shocking cable disc brakes. These days they seem to be better - and typically work consistently in the wet, as well as any issues with rims not transferring to braking.
5) Sure, though I don't think many would particularly notice my newer build, especially viewed from the right.
6) In both cases it depends on how either is setup - whether it's setup with torque sensing, cadence or a throttle and the specs in each case. Generally I'd say you get more go from mid drive. Sure, compared to my 1kw direct drive hub when it's got it's trailer with 2x1kw geared hubs and no weight in the trailer, the mid drive doesn't feel fast. But I bet it does accelerate quicker than this G-Tech.
(And I'm used to motorbikes, while my current fastest bike is a supersport, in the past I've had superbikes - so being able to regular use acceleration that will match a veyron on a standing quarter mile - none of these are going to feel THAT fast!)
Thank you @_g_
You are clearly very talented.
If you hadn't have said I wouldn't have known they were e bikes at all.

Really nice job, and thanks for sharing, much appreciated.

I still think most would rather a shop bought, warranted bike.
It is of course cheaper to build your own but generally you'll be using a Chinese kit with limited support and aesthetically speaking a purpose built ebike will look better with batteries incorporated into the frame design etc.
I've built several ebikes also but you can never get the stealthy look of a purpose built bike with a bolt on kit.

As Richb3012 says - I'd love to take the praise.
(Which might be more justified for my trailer, which I built from scratch etc - but these really are very little work. I didn't bother to read instructions or check youtube for the second one.)

Quite likely correct regarding what people want.

I'd suggest that the bike in question here however probably uses pretty generic Chinese items and that without the branding we could probably buy the same or similar items and put them on a bike to easily achieve the same thing. Don't see any fancy integrated display or anything here either.

I do like the way the newer bikes have frames with integrated batteries - but in this case it actually looks very 'DIY' I think - nothing obviously ebike specific and looks like they've used the standard water bottle mounts to attach the battery too!
Oh and for what it's worth, while it wasn't new, I did end up getting my mum a Giant Prime - that's to some mobility issues, I suggested she try a step-through to replace her (not e) current mountain bike.
Very limited options for fairly sturdy see-throughs that take disc brakes and ideally come with a cassette rear as standard.
Add in that it came with lights, stand, pannier rack and so on - and a 10%/£50 off ebay code and the ready built one did seem to make some sense. Though, paid massively less than a new price, of course!
I agree, I don't think you'd be getting better performance from this than anything you could build, I'm just saying that most prefer a pre-built.
Personally, like you I'd get a decent Bafang and battery but it's not for everyone.
