Nope, I do average 35-40 miles (55/60km) including boost for hills with 12ah battery between charges so quite possible on lower assist setting and mostly on the flat. And I ain't young or super fit either.
MInd you cant take anything for granted these days! If you enlarge the image on the aldi page then right click it and "open image new tab" it will show a slightly bigger pic to see the components better. It has vbrakes. Need to be careful with these batteries. Dont overcharge them and dont let them drain too low in general. Unplug em too when not being used. The battery here looks a bit dodgy..too small to be 11.5aH and certainly cables too short or just assembled wrong.
v brakes are fine, I'm just saying it doesn't actually state in the description that it has any brakes at all.
Looks good - I had a elife voyage which was great for 15/20miles but no good off road as a plodder even. I think the 26" wheels would make a big positive difference...anyone ever compared the ride on 20" Vs 26" ebikes of similar spec? Mine was a front hub too which was a bit dodgy initially when turning into a road etc it tried to pull away from you..well dodgy. Still it was fine once you got used to it but you had to have your wits about you if you hit gravel on a road etc. but anyone have any real life experience of front hub/mid drive/rear hub drives?
It is indeed these days when most cheapies are 7ah and 24v!! hold me back. Great warranty too from aldi Forget disc brakes etc they are just a fad...you cannot beat bog standard v brakes for plodding along and simplicity "Range 60-70km" TOTAL BIG FAT LIE . 11.5 aH will give you 20/25 miles on the flat
