    I’ve had this bike for 2 weeks and it is awesome. It did exactly what I had expected it to. It came fully charged and took around 30 minutes to assemble (seat, unfolding the bike, etc. simple stuff). My complaints would be that the front fender was scratched, the front brake squeaked a bit when I use it and the gears were tight so I couldn’t switch it to 1 for my first ride (it could only go as low as 3). Although it is foldable, it’s quite heavy. I rarely fold it but it is a nice feature to have in case someone wants to give you a ride in their car. 😉 So for that, I can’t give it 5 stars.

    I am 5’4″ and around 115-120lbs. The bike travels on average 16mph on flat roads and reaching up to 20 mph on steep slopes downhill.

    The charging time I would say takes about 6 times however long you rode it for. For example, since I rode my bike for 12 mins. to work for 2.3 miles, it took me about an hour to charge it to full. There was a time I was on my bike for around 10.4 miles and it took almost 5 hours to charge to full.

    I haven’t really calculated how many miles I could push on this bike but it was able to run at least 10 miles without pedaling for me. I might update on this later.

    I added a milk crate to the luggage rack and strapped it down with 2 bungie cords. It works perfect for grocery shopping!

    I highly recommend this bike to anyone who would like to use it for commute, grocery shopping and exploration of places within 5-6 miles of where you…can get your bike charged. 🙂

    UPDATE:

    The gears have been working fine after the first couple rides and the front brakes don’t squeak anymore!

    The maximum range I had tested on this bike is 14.4 miles almost completely by throttle except for when I had to go over a bridge (less than 1 min. uphill). So I’m guessing it would max out at around 15 miles for me.

    UPDATE:

    1 month after purchase – Flat back tire. Probably from something sharp on the road (could have been from the construction at the building where I work at). Got it replaced in 2-3 hours. I spent $43.06 (tire, inner tubing and labor…I believe it was a bit more expensive since they had to carefully detach the wiring in order to get to the tire).

    7 months after purchase – Bike is working great still! I use it at least every weekday to commute to work. Only slight maintenance every few weeks, keeping the tires pumped. I’m really glad I bought this bike! Saves me from getting sweaty biking as the weather starts warming up here.

    I really like this bike I have been able to bike to work w/o getting sweaty. My only complaints are there are no shocks on the bike and the chain is tends to fall off when going over a big bump like a curb. Otherwise this is a great bike and use it to run errands I have been able to decrease using my car by about 75% because of this bike. (I added a milk crate on the back to give me more storage space.

    After a error in delivery I finally got my little foldaway bike and I love it
    I am pretty heavy (say 250lbs) and the bike would still drag me on a flat road and the engine helps a lot when going uphill.

    I would like to give thumbs up to the Customer care of the vendor (golf outlet) very helpful and well willing to fix the delivery error and proposed a partial refund to compensate.
