So my new Ecotric was delivered from California in a few days to my MA home. So simple to put together in a matter of minutes. Took it for a spin and what a frickin blast!! There is nothing like this thing!!
I bought this bike 8 months ago and just broke 1000 miles. I love almost everything about it. It has plenty of power and I only pedal if I want and that includes uphill. It runs great in almost all weather with the exception of not so great battery life when the temperature is below 25°f (-4°c). I only have 2 complaints. First is the chain guard could be made of stronger material because 800 miles in it broke and started making the chain pop occasionally when I hit a hard bump. I fixed it but putting a front derailer on and locking it in place. The second is the handle bars/grips are oddly shaped (but super comfortable) which makes it difficult to install mirrors and headlights. With that said to buy anything of comparable quality/performance from any other brand is $1500 or better so if you are looking for an ebike you definitely cannot go wrong with this model. One suggestion, if you plan to ride it in the rain or mud definitely buy the fenders as they make a huge difference.
