Re: Anyone into electric cycling?

There is a waiting list, and it could be delivered by the end of the year. I am making payments, and they will deliver it when I can finish paying for it. I am reconstructing the roof on my house, and we bought a Bolt EV, so I have less money available than I had hoped.

Hello,

I might be planning to buy a simple electric bike soon, so I am hoping the experts here can offer some feedback.

Its primarily for the occasionally errands/ ride to tuition center/ grocery shopping/ and the occasional ride to a faraway park (15 miles round trip tops); Primary users are the wife, early teen and myself.

I think we could potentially get a deal on this GenZe recreational model for $1000 : "GenZe e102" (women's / Rec model) https://www.genze.com/e-bikes/#-102-SIL-350-SKD
I found a review here, for the e101 (men's / Sports model) https://electricbikereview.com/forum/th ... 101.12824/ and it seems decent.

Do you folks think for the specs, $1000 is a reasonable cost?

Thanks for any feedback.

I like that it has both pedal assist and throttle modes, and the specs I can see, like motor power, are ok for what you want. They are pretty mum about things like battery capacity and even type, though. I assume it's lithium, but given the size of the battery compartment in the frame their range estimates seem, as usual, optimistic.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.
