    At age 85 I needed an eBike to improve my health. Using google to research the market I found the Neo Velox the closest fit for my requirement, alas I could not connect with any seller I could trust. Amazon offers much information on the Prodeco line of bikes and I chose the Storm 500 model, which has the same specs as this Genesis. For the price it comes as close to the perfect choice as I could expect. The design is very well thought out. It took me a week to track down a fault in the wiring and repair it. Proteco technical assistance was as efficient as can be expected. They diagnosed the problem by phone to be a faulty controller on Friday and I received a replacement on Monday morning in the mail.
    After installing this, it turned out the problem was an inadequate soldering job in a wire connecting the key lock to the controller. After fixing that I was able to make the first run. I am surprised how well everything is working. Yesterday a bicyclist got killed in our community because the car hitting him from behind could not see him. The great taillight built into the battery is just one of the well thought out features of my bike. My hat off to the designers at Prodeco.
    One thing I shall add to the bike is a left side rear view mirror.

    I got the bike 3 days ago box was is great condition, packaged well only had to install the handle bars, seat and battery which took 5 minutes. Charged the battery and used the bike for hours yesterday. I like biking but hate hills this lets me use the bike near my house and I don’t mind the hills at all. I’m a Volunteer EMT and yesterday we covered a breast cancer walk I used the bike up and down hills where the walk was going on and it was great! 2 things I would like to see, is a better place for the water bottle holder and a way to have a rack on the back. I actually raised the seat enough to attach a Top peak MTX BeamRack EX going to look at a MTX BeamRack (A-Type) which might work better but it would be good if Predeco came up with a solution as This is not the Ideal solution. I think Prodeco could work with TopPeak and make a bracket that combines their battey pack and the mount for the TopPeak Bags. Since I believe I will use the bike more but need to carry items from the store. If it wasn’t for the ability to carry things and the bad positioning for the water bottle I would have given this 5 stars.

    I had some problem , but was quickly resolved by the factory and they went to the source to prevent future problems. This is by far the highest quality bike I have owned. I currently own eight bikes, three of them electric, this is by far the best. It’s easy to use on human power only. I’ve taken it over sixty miles in one day, but on just electric power with no assist probably 20-30 miles. I enjoy ridding it, I’ve been ridding bikes around 30 miles a day for ten years not always electric
