Pleased you're enjoying yours but no way is it worth anything like £999. Usual IdealWorld con. £384.99 for this very similar one from the same supplier! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EPlus-Commute-Electric-Folding-Bike-700c-Wheel-MANUFACTURER-REFURBISHED/163259553421?hash=item260307168d:g:GlEAAOSwmZJbnRwU:rk:8:pf:0

I think the earliest they were released was around March this year, so if you did get one that somebody has used everyday, absolutely hammered and flattened the battery everyday (a bit unlikely, in my opinion) you would still be looking at having about 720-750 charges left. But I have a feeling these are stock they did not sell, (ie mine came and looked new, box was sealed, etc), or used a few times and returned (maybe the fold and heaviness issues put folk off... Ideal World did make a big thing of returning it no problem etc, and in their presentation they did make the fold appear to be easier than it is in real life (they did not do a full fold), but other than that their info was spot on). Also a big plus of this for folk not on a bike in a while is the weight it can take, over 19 stone (I am 17.5 and it Handles me easily).

mcrobbj

They are refurbs, so be worth knowing how many charges are left as the battery is a costly consumable. The halfords ones are around £400!

bonzobanana

None of the prices look that great to me. The Pinnacle brand does offer some good value bikes generally but discounts aren't that great. Considering you can sometimes get 40-50% off brand new boxed bikes for last year's models I think those offer better value than scratched up ex-display, ex-demonstration models.

kate.g

be careful when buying their RTC items - i bought a roubaix with £500 discount with paint scratches - when arrived in store had multiple faults (scuffed shifters/top tube) that hadn’t been mentioned. then when two spokes snapped within a fortnight i had to get really narky to get a resolution and ultimately go straight to specialized - evans just kept on with sold as seen, already had a discount line. would never do it again - evans know naff all.

Curious to know how these new EU duties will affect personal imports of e-bikes from China. https://www.bikebiz.com/business/e-bike-tariffs I assume at some point duties may get a lot worse. The Carrera Crosscity was £650 earlier in the year, it then went up to £700 and now its £850 in only a matter of months. That's about a 30% increase in price over about 10-15 weeks. Will Chinese companies still manage to find a sneaky way of getting them into Europe on the sly via some Baltic country without paying duties for individual purchases. Is this bike even certified to be sold in the UK and Europe and legal to use on our roads even if the spec is road legal in principle. If they can continue to bypass EU duties this way then perhaps in the future personal imports will be the only way to get a decent price e-bike.

Is that including air drag? Without calculating it you have a massive over- estimate of power gained, as your model assumes the regen braking will be so strong that you are going 5mph downhill (where air resistance is a small factor), but in mountain biking you would be going alot faster, probably averaging at least 15mph (where air resistance is a huge factor)

CampGareth

I did the maths and you're right, like assuming a vertical hill 1km high and a 100kg bike + rider combo, reasonable efficiency, you spend about 400Wh going up but gain 130Wh going down with regen braking on. Not bad at all. The trick is you need a hub gear motor and extra power circuitry for regen braking so the resulting bike will be heavier, not enough to make it not worthwhile but a heavier bike with more unsprung mass will be less pleasant to ride.

alasrati

Regenerative braking or some kind of dynamo would probably add a decent amount of energy for a mountain bike being used up and down hills. You'd also lose more energy going up steep hills so the 108 mile range would be reduced.

daern

To be fair, for off-road riding that's still a respectable distance. Or, to put it another way, you'd be a sweaty mess after that distance offroad with a regular bike :-)

rugman

If you are lightweight, fit, on the flat, no or wind behind you, tyres at 70 psi, on the lowest assist setting. Otherwise expect about 40 to 70 miles

K trap a to B. Absolute tune

Bertz99

You realise Plato quoted Socrates saying much the same about himself, your name isn't Sophia by any chance? Even in your screenshot states "The weights listed are for general reference only; check the documentation included with your bike for specific weight limits". Must be beyond me to recognise the industrial guidelines all e-bikes much adhere to being quoted in their generic manual for the other product range of the Xduro that also states to look at the documentation supplied for the specific bike Community forums are about discussing what is correct - ego is about dealing with who is right and wrong and hinders people getting to what is correct. In the main I am reflecting the parts that you are excluding from you bias - when not going off piste.. That is your opinion - I think they have configured as their entry level mid motored bike with some features that I personally like on that frame e.g. the motor guard. The reviewer you posted up also stated he liked the frame a lot Everything else you are projecting I have said isn't the case but it would require you listening beyond yourself. Your recommendation as an alternative better and cheaper bike, according to its specifications, has a Suntour XCT, Mechanical brakes, Pro wheel chain set whilst not being mid motored and I have already flogged to death your advise that I consider dangerous. To you I would Bonzo as you can't hear what I am saying. Anyway I am out of here as you are going to continue talking to yourself no matter what.

bonzobanana

Again you don't seem to understand much. Rider weight of 120kg is different to total permitted weight of 120kg, one is the rider weight on it's own without luggage or the bike weight itself and the total permitted weight is everything. How can you not understand anything so basic as that. You seem to be pre-occupied by your own ridiculous and incorrect opinions. Anyway here is the detail from their manual. I hope we can finish with your absolute nonsense now of the Haibike being a stronger bike. It is significantly weaker as you would expect from that frame and geometry add to that a more complicated and less reliable motor type. While Haibike may have light duty off road bike on their site it isn't being repeated on all websites selling the bike it is sold as a simple e-mountain bike. They have also configured it to look like a serious off road bike despite its many weaknesses. Your opinions are so utterly biased and ridiculous it is farcical. You are clearly wrong here, you have pursued this point but failed at every opportunity. You also lack any sort of level of politeness and just come across as some offensive keyboard warrior. https://www.4qte.com/pdf/Haibike/Haibike eBike Owner's Manual 2014.pdf

Bertz99

Sduro Hardseven is advertised by Haibike themselves as a light off road bike, here is the is a screenshot from their workbook: I copied the reviewer - albeit again you have cut off for the urban rider and with the warranty wear and tear would not concern him - much like you saw what you chose to see in the review rather than taking the full pro's and con's. EN15194 is about requirements for ebikes - a none ebike has no requirement to conform to this requirement in the context of retro fitting. This is where I think your advise suggesting that most bikes can be retro fitted is a dangerous one in an open forum. As pointed to the comparison between the non ebike and ebike from Haibike most laymen should be able to see the ebike is strengthened in a number of area's where the load differs between that of a human rider to a motor driven that goes beyond the weight to also the forces applied. I also made the point that the Haibike has from the ground up designed, specified and had a frame built for a mid drive motor. The Carrera (which is like comparing apples to oranges in relation to this mid drive Haibike) has taken a standard design and strengthened those key points required. Feel free to take a set of digital callipers and check the differences between the e variant and none e variant of their same bike in your local Halfords. As to you made up 110Kg for the Haibike and the Carrera being some 30kg more this is the spec of the Carrera on the left and the Haibike on the right: If you would like to look at the mountain bike magazines and awards you will see Haibike are up there and considered at the cutting edge and often first to market in pushing the envelope especially with their Yamaha and Bosch solutions. Of course if you want beyond entry level then you need to move your budget further north. If you were to move the analogy with cars then the Carrera would be closer to a Dacia - reliable, clunky, cheap, older tech but really nothing to get excited about. I answered all this morning when you posted which was deleted by the moderators as content was deemed not suitable and on that note I give in trying to keep you on track to the relevance of the Haibike in this offering or adding my tuppence where I can. So long

bonzobanana

Again the bike is listed as a electric mountain bike which implies normal mountain bike use. You are describing light off road use which many bikes are capable of. As you have mentioned the Bosch motor version offers shift sensing which will reduce wear on the chain, sprockets and derailleur and that review stated even with that feature without even going off road those components had to be replaced 3 times in 1 year for a higher mileage cyclist. The Yamaha doesn't have that system so seems likely such wear will be higher. Crank motors are high torque which is ideal for real off road use but pairing them with lower end components effectively ruins that capability or means a product that is very high maintenance and give the cogs and chain a huge workout. Pairing such a motor with such a low end bike with lower end drivetrain components is a poor match. You may criticise hub motors for their lack of torque for off road use but some of them work very well over the long term even if they never quite achieve the same performance off road as the higher end haibikes. This haibike model looks like it would be high risk to take off road with some sort of failure likely either in the motor or drivetrain or possibly an issue with the basic forks. Going back to the retro fitting of hub motors on conventional frames. All these bikes are certified and tested and then rated for load capacity and other factors. The Haibikes have a lower weight rating than many conventional mountain bike frames that have been fitted with hub motors. All these bikes have to comply with EN14766 and EN15194. The fact is the certification often dictates the final load capacity of a bike. Despite the huge number of Carrera bikes sold in the UK, frame issues are not common. They often feature reinforcing not seen on their competitors. Like the Haibike frames they are probably manufactured at the huge fuji-ta facility in China but that facility makes light duty frames (often destined for it's own domestic market) and much stronger designs for the US and Europe, basically what the customer pays for. There are a lot of reports of Haibike issues for what is a niche product in the UK. Again no one is saying that a mid mount crank motor isn't the ideal for a mountain e-bike it's just such bikes do not cost £1,500. With a £1,500 price tag its probably hard for many to see this bike as entry level but it is for this type of product with this motor type and frame configuration.

never liked the apollo range in halfords - they always seemed too cheap looking whenever i have gone for a closer look ( maybe some are better than others like the carerra range - seen some good ones & some that boggled the mind as to why they bothered with it lol.) the apollos always seemed to have that supermarket type of feel to em to me ( but on saying that, my 1st bike was a bike from ASDA over 20 years ago & i still have it & its still going strong even though i have never treat it with much kindness.

Pattoe

It was actually my flatmate at the time who paid for the goop add on as we went halves on the bike, as we were sharing it, but he picked it up from the store and he's incredibly gullible and he bought their sales pitch hook, line and sinker at the store. When he came back and told me what he'd paid £12 for I laughed at him because it seemed absolutely pointless to me. Although, as a retailer, you have to take responsibility for your products whether it was you directly who messed up or it was the supplier who messed up, it's up to you to make sure they are of suitable quality because you're the contact with the customer, meaning the customer complains to you and you complain to the supplier. As far as we, the End User, are concerned, it should be Halfords at blame because they are choosing to use that supplier, the bike was an Apollo range bike too which is Halford's own brand so it's not like that type of bike would be sold by other retailers. (The gears and brakes were bloody awful on it too but for all the bad stuff I say about it, it was no race horse or pure bred, it was a donkey, but it was a reliable, stubborn, and tough donkey. I rode the hell out of it in all weathers and conditions and it's still able to take more punishment, so it's not all bad.)

confused_boardman_owner

did your new bike have Presta or Schrader valved innertubes ??? if presta then its probable they were at fault indeed as not many of the bikes they sell come with suitable tubes as standard so you have to buy a slime tube or something like a continental tube & have it slimed ( or other brand that has removablable valve cores ) BUT if they were schrader valves ( car valve type ) then when you paid for the slime in the tyres addon, the store will not have removed the tyres or replaced the innertubes at all, instead they will have just removed the valve & sloshed in a suitable amount of goop from a huge drum of slime they have, refitted the valve core & reinflated the tube - thus transforming your boggo innertube that was already fitted ( badly ) by the factory into a slimed tube so again may not be the stores fault fully here. ( not all stores will operate this way but thats how my nearest 3 seem to operate with regards the slime stuff - next time ur in ur local see if there is a honking great barrel of green goop behind the counter, if so then thats the punture goop you paid for a squirt or 2 of :) )

bonzobanana

Your bike is considerably higher spec than this one. Folding as already stated but when the battery is flat your 6 gears will be a godsend compared to a single gear plus you can get a better fit on the bike as you have height adjustable handlebars. The quill stem on this ideal world bike might have a little height adjustment but you'd have to do it at home with your tools and can't be adjusted anywhere like yours. I don't think the ideal world bike is terrible value at the discounted price but it is an extremely basic model and more bulky bike.

This is nearly correct, in that the speed limit only applies to the motor assist, you can legally go as fast as you can pedal, which even on something like this is likely to be way over 15.5mph (25kmh) but the motor *must* cut out at 15.5mph.... now this might sound pointless, but the fact is when you have a motor to assist up 15mph, you save a lot of YOUR energy you would normally use for starts, riding up hills etc, so you find more energy to propel you over the 15.5mph motor limit.

coventgamer

bonzobanana

Fair point but for many like myself Decathlon isn't local so it would also be an internet bike that I would have to assemble and check myself and either would be a protected purchase if you use a credit card as they would be jointly liable. There isn't a single Decathlon store in the south west or wales. Bristol is one of Britain's biggest cities but no stores there for example. Where as within about 30 miles of where I am there are at least 6 halfords stores possibly more and at 40 miles probably 20-30 plus stores including Cycle republic stores. In fact wherever you go with a halfords bike you can pretty much get warranty work done just a few miles away which is better than most local independent bike shops. I totally accept for many though having a local Decathlon store is an advantage over online especially when a bike has low end short life parts that are more likely to need warranty work.

Besford

Could be OK for someone like you with a good knowledge of bikes but I think a lot of people will want the reassurance of a 'proper shop' to deal with, especially with an electric bike. It may be cheap for an electric bike but £500 is still a lot of money!

bonzobanana

Another option here if you want a more conventional e-bike. It has far higher rider weight capacity and about double the battery capacity. It might suit some better. It also has throttle control so probably older stock and legally a bit more dubious but has pedal assist as well. https://bicycles4u.com/products/esprit-electric-explorer

"Bikes tested are to be returned clean and with a charge of at least 80%" I don't know how long a battery holds its charge but if you need to use the bike to return it to the store, let's hope you need less than 20% battery to make it there (skeptical)

Good idea, best to try before you buy. I got mine through the cycle to work scheme, so I didn't pay any tax and it came out of my wages monthly. Something to concider if you can get it. I go up steepish hills and my Crosscity ebike manages well. Its like someone is pushing you up the hill.

Besford

I didn't say it was a deal breaker and I voted hot, but the battery price/life issue is very real and few buyers are aware of it initially. Replacing batteries on a cheaper ebike is rarely viable from a cost point of view: may be better to remove all the electric stuff and sell on a decent conventional bike.

odom

Depends, if you keep using it until it totally runs out or stick it in the shed for five months and expect no loss in capacity. Also, conversely, it is pretty certain that in 2021 batteries will be cheaper and higher capacity than now. By creating a market for batteries it ensures that they will continue to be produced and the bike will not be obsolete. I'm no fan of electric bikes, i think appropriate gears are much better. However, the battery issue is hardly a deal breaker.

Besford

Looks good for the money but the problem with ebikes is that the battery life expectancy is around 3 years and you are then faced with a BIG bill to replace it (usually £300-£500).

Rickardo

Possibly, but adds further weight, of course.
