It’s been a few weeks since I bought my bike – I’ve been holding back on the feedback so I could get a good test in and the verdict is: Brilliant!
I am a very happy customer. The kit was easy to fit and seems to be built well. My motor (350w) is perfect for where I live as there are more hills than I thought and my return trip to work is only 22km. I also appreciate your time on the phone and your prompt email communications.
I fly past other cyclists and get the odd look or comment when I pull up beside someone. I like my setup too: I’ve put my control box under my seat and I’ve put a basket on my pack-rack. This is great because with out the battery on, the bike does not look like an electric bike that one might want to steal. And rather than make a mount for the battery, I’ve padded it up and it now lives in my shoulder satchel that I take to work so I just put the bag in the basket and plug the battery in. That’s easy too, because I’m using an IEC plug to connect it up so it’s a one-step action – the plug is also modified so that the male and female ends are unique to each other just in case someone tries to plug it directly into mains power.
I’m dropping your web address to anyone that I talk to about the bike. That fact is that you’re only about $20 – $30 more than the best Chinese deal one could find, but with that loose change comes piece of mind buying from an Australian business complete with phone number! So I hope you sell many more of these.
