Every bleeding bike post and we have the 'pedals not included??' discussion.
In this case 'pedals included'
I suppose at least you reversed it.

Same power output as £399 ebike sold in Argos. Is it worth £900, or thereabouts, without the motor?

I can't believe there are retailers that peddle bikes that don't come with pedals.

Must admit that I didn't notice that. Thanks for pointing it out
Think I might want one of these electric bikes!

True. But it is a pretty big small (17.3 inch). It also has an aggressive slope of the top tube.
So if you were thinking you need a medium if might be worth finding a store with it in small to size up.

Lots of bicycles are supplied without pedals as people may want to select their own, such as ones that mate up to the fittings on your cycling shoes. However, electric bicycles are required to only use the motor to assist pedalling, so maybe they have to be supplied with pedals to comply with the legislation.

Once you start riding an Email bike you will never revert back to a manual bike ... On a windy day they are godsend and those hills are a piece of cake

Do you have to stamp on the pedals to go fast? Do you post your times on Strava? What's your signature trick? How many CC is the engine?
I have been keeping an eye on this for a few months. I am surprised if they are now saying it has pannier mounts.

Just checked - they aren't. This is a big negative for this bike. Yes, you can buy clips but really a bike like this should have pannier mounts as a matter of course.

Rated power ≠ power output.
By law bikes have to be rated at 250w or less to not be a motorbike.
However this is self-certified and something like what the bike can handle continuously for an hour.
In reality this style of motor typically produces a peak power of 400w to 600w.
This motor is probably around 500w at a guess.
Further, rather than the Argos bike which I'm sure is a hub motor with no gears, this motor drives through 9 gears with a 309% range - meaning you can get better acceleration away from the line or up hill, then change gears and also have a motor efficient at going faster.

I was always sceptical of these, but after getting the DIY self build I always wanted, letting my mum have a go and then getting her a Yamaha powered mid-drive, I'm a total convert. As have some friends/colleagues I've let try the bikes.

I've had/got hub motor bikes (and a hub motor trailer, also); I'd say a bike like this was easily worth the £750 extra over the Argos bike.

Note, however, that you probably are limited to a Bosch battery pack, which are going to be expensive.
(Though with my mum's, I've found and tested a way to use generic packs - so got her a 720wh pack for £150 rather than the £700+ a branded one could cost!)
no pedals? WTF? trollololol
God this is tempting. I just bought another bike though and I feel that if do get this I will have to sleep with my eyes open and only drink from sealed bottles or my other half will end me.
Is it ok for first ebike for 60-90 mins commuting couple days a week?

Yes - should be a good choice for that.
As above, you can't use standard panniers racks it seems - but these days there are some really good heavy duty pannier racks that mount to the tubes for under £20, so I wouldn't be too worried b that myself.

Take a look at the argos ones. They are folding and include the rear pannier rack that is missing from this one. Only £380 and are made for commuting.

The Argos one only has a 24v battery. I wouldn't buy a new ebike without a 36v battery. My bro has a 24v folder and I've got an almost identical one with a 36v battery. There's a marked difference in both range and oomph.

I'm not sure that makes a difference. I just saw a £3500 ebike with a 22V battery. There must be other factors involved other than just the voltage.

Its ridiculous any bike doesn't come with pedal, a basic fundamental part of the bike which without renders it unusable! Why not have bikes that come without wheels so the buyer can purchase their own at a later date!

There are many other factors.
However, looking at it very simplistically, Volts x Amp hours = Watt Hours. The battery in the deal posted was a Bosch rated at 400 Watt hours. (I've checked and it's actually a 36v 11Ah battery) The Argos bike has a 24v 7.8Ah battery, which equals 187.2 Watt hours - less than half of the battery in the deal. Then there is the matter of torque....

Realistically, unless you are lightweight, riding completely on the flat and doing a lot of the work yourself, I would expect the bike in the deal to do around 20 miles and the Argos bike would probably struggle to do much more than a 10 mile commute.

I would guess that riding at the same pace, the bike in the deal should also be more efficient, thanks to the use of gears - less likely to be pulling a lot of amps at low (motor) rpm.
On mid mode my mum looked to be getting 20miles + from a used 300Wh battery.
I was getting a good lot less, but I had it on 'turbo' mode all the time and regularly sat 10mph faster (on private land, of course).
And to add to that - from some 'real world' reports on forums etc - it seems 400wh should do for maybe 35-40 miles, depending on all the normal variables, of course.
