The bike works very well. I purchased a second a week after this one. It does have difficulty going up very steep hills. Can still get up hills I would typically have to walk though. I get about 30 miles per charge if there is a lot going up hills. Could easily do a lot more if the area is flat. Itâs not hard to put together. I suggest watching some videos or getting a how to book if needed. Once out together you may need to adjust things such as breaks or derailer. I did a lot of research before buying. It seems no mater how much you pay non of the bikes are truly ready out of the box. There are close though. Amazon offers assembly at a reasonable price. It was offered for $89 at the time of purchase. Not bad if you canât do it yourself. I will say again itâs not hard to do. I had never had a bike with disk breaks. I watched a video and had them adjusted in 5 minutes. I have gone over 100 miles so far. You can adjust how much assist you get and also shift gears. I bought this with a broken leg. I have been able to keep it so shifting was really easy at the beginning an move it up as a build up strength.
I purchased the bike over a year ago and have been commuting about 20 miles a day several times a week with the bike. I probably have logged over 8 thousand miles so far. The battery is still going strong (I can ride over 40 miles with peddle assistance per charge easily). Here is what I like, what accessories I have added and what my wishes are.
What I like:
My bike was assembled by Performance Bike. And I did several minor adjustments with breaks and lubed the squeaking stem initially. The bike performs well after that. The parts (except the folding pedals – late on that) are excellent quality and the bike feels very grounded even at 28 mph down the hill. So far I have only swapped the front and rear tires to ensure both of them are worn evenly.
The battery holds the charge very well and stayed fully charged sometimes when I leave the bike there for a while. The motor is very powerful and I can easily climb over 20-degree hills with PAS. I really like the 4″ fat-tire and they smooth out the ride very well. I folded the bike several times to store it in the trunk. It is a fairly easy process.
For the price, it is packed with a lot of quality parts comparing with a similar bike over thousand dollars price tag. I got a lot of compliments from other eBikers about the bike and especially the price while commuting.
What I have added:
I have installed a rear rack so I can carry things while commuting. I think this is a must if you also use the bike to run errands in town. For safety, I added battery operated flashing lights (front and back) for commuting on the road shared with cars and cell phone holder if I need to see maps on the phone. The plastic folding pedals are not that strong and wobbly too. If you don’t fold your bike very often I strongly recommend replacing them with metal pedals. Mine was broken while I was riding so it was kind of dangerous.
What wishes I have:
Replacing the front fork with air or Coil one for the more rough road. Install wired front and rear lights to utilize the power from the battery. Bluetooth rearview camera to view the rear traffic on my cell phone (long term wish) or install a rearview mirror (have not found an elegant one yet).
Overall, I am very happy with the purchase and have truly enjoyed the ride for a year now.

I like the bike but the front wheel wiggles and the grease from the hub is leaking out. I tightened the bolt but itâs still leaking out. Iâll be returning this bike unless they send me a front wheel replacement
Update: Got the front wheel replacement and it works great. Customer service did well taking care of the issue. So far Iâm loving this eBike and itâs getting a lot of attention.
I’ve had this bike for a few weeks now & so far I’m pretty impressed with it. It replaced a Vilano Pulse commuter bike I had for a couple years that was OK but impractical to use on any terrain other than pavement. The Ecotric’s fat tires make for much better travel on dirt & gravel roads. I’ll have to wait till winter to try it on snow. Also the Pulse was pedal assist only but the Ecotric’s throttle is a great option if you don’t want to pedal. Assembly was fairly easy despite the vague instructions that came with it. Anyone mechanically inclined can figure it out. I got two of them, one for me & one for my wife. Hers had an issue with the front wheel not spinning freely once it was mounted on the frame. This turned out to be a brake adjustment. The manual does not say how to adjust it. I figured it out on my own. On the inside of the front wheel hub there is a silver colored disc that you can turn in or out with the supplied allen wrench. This solved the problem. Presumably this would need to be adjusted occasionally as the disc brakes wear down. Another peculiar thing that at first I thought was a defect is that engaging the front brake while the bike is moving causes to wheel to wobble slightly. Both bikes do this so I’m assuming this is normal. Again the manual says nothing about it. I may call their tech dept to confirm this to allay any safety concerns. That aside, the bike is a lot of fun. On level ground with just the throttle it does about 20 MPH. With pedal assist & throttle combined you can get close to 30 MPH. Going uphill with throttle only is slow going but it does go. Just pedal a bit with it & it zips right up the hill easily. The folding feature is very handy. I can fit both bikes in the back of my Scion XB & they tuck away nicely inside the back of my RV. No more using a cargo carrier as I did with regular bikes. Again the manual is vague about how to fold it but I figured it out. One of the hinges was very stiff but a couple shots of WD40 fixed that. Pedaling it without any power on at all is actually a lot easier than I thought it would be with the fat tires. Good to know that if the motor failed for some reason I could get somewhere on it without too much effort, tho it would be tiring. It is more difficult than a regular bike. Feature for feature, at this price it’s hard to beat this bike. It remains to be seen how long it will last without developing mechanical issues, as inevitably it will. When it does, getting it serviced/locating parts could be a challenge. I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it (pun intended). Meanwhile, my wife & I are having a ball with these bikes. We’re both retired & in our late 60’s. These have added a great deal of mobility as we travel around in our RV. I did a lot of research & these are the best bang for the buck
