Great as a first ebike
I really like the bike. The original one that they sent had a problem with the crank but the seller quickly sent me a replacement. The brake levers on the replacement bike were reversed on the handlebar (front/back) but I switched the brake cables around in about 10 minutes and they work fine now! I added a rack which looks great – I got the Ibera brand bike rack for around $30 and it fits perfectly. The bike is powerful and tops out at 30 kilometers per hour (about 20 mph).
Great bike, fast, easy assembly
This is my 1st electric bike. I’ve ridden about 60 miles so far. The peddle assistance is smooth and powerful. I love that you can use the throttle anytime you need it. I added a bike rack to the rear, and changed out the seat for a wider seat, from my last bike. I’m 6′ 1″ tall 180 lb no issues. It’s easy to charge, just plug it in. It is a heavy bike at 70lbs. I had a issue with the derailleur not shifting to the 2 smallest gears 6, 7. The customer service by email was excellent. They paid (credit) for a local bike shop to diagnose and adjust/fix it.
The user manual/assembly is lacking, but not a issue for me. The headlight is turned on and off by holding the mode and up button.
Impressive, lots of power, great design. BIG Bike!
I love the thumb throttle. The peddle assist is very smooth & powerful!! I added a basket, rear cargo rack, panniers, and trunk box. Upgraded to a wider gel seat. Tires are not as knobby as a lot of fat tires but doing great so far in rocks and on the beach. Front suspension is great. Don’t have to leave the key in the battery to turn on, just to lock in place & remove the key. On/off switch for power. Handle bar grips don’t have holes if you want to add streamers. I also like that this bike has peddle assist and full power at the same time. You don’t have to push a button to switch between the two. I am 5’7″ and the bike is a bit tall for me, I cannot put both feet on the ground but once on, I just hit the throttle and away I go….My husband is 5′ 10″ and loves this bike and has told me I have to buy another e-bike for myself. I did and so wish it had the thumb throttle as the grip throttle will be the death of me. I bought a 20″ folding full suspension bike and so love the DJ bike way more!!!
Great Value for a Daily commuter , Excellent Ebike
I have rode this bike everyday to work since I bought it and I am very impressed. I Have almost exactly 100 miles on the bike.
I am 240lbs, 6′ tall and my commute is about 10 miles each way to work. I have experimented and have the following data to relate:
I average 23-24 MPH on flat ground, full throttle, no pedal assist….I cross 3 overpasses on the way to work, the bike gets down to about 15 MPH on the steepest.
If I do not pedal , at all, I arrive at my work or home with about 25% of the battery left.
If I pedal everytime to get the bike going, from a dead stop , I arrive at work or home with 75 % of the battery left.
One day, I did forget my charger at home and made all 20 miles on a single charge with 25% left when I got home.
I am also A Motorcycle dirt bike rider on the weekends and really love the way this bike feels as a daily rider. Where I live in Socal, the traffic is horrible, riding this bike barely adds anytime to my commute as I can take shortcuts, etc.
I did get a flat tire on the front, found the tubes easily on Amazon.
What a nice Bike…!
What a nice bike .. The first ride I got it up to 39.5 mph up hills 22 mph. One good buy for the money..!
