Does this bike use a 6 pole or 12 pole cadence sensor? The 2018 models used the out of date 6 pole sensor making the motor slow to activate and deactivate. It’s a safety issue as well since the motor will not cut out immediately when you stop pedaling. You have to wait until the motor cuts out or use the brake levers manually.

al padrino says:

I don’t think those are Shimano brakes. 🙂

R Zu says:

Disc brakes and front suspension at an affordable price. I think I would have to change those bars though. The hand position looks uncomfortable.

Jam Player says:

Wow really cool bike would love to have it!

Knighted Cyclist says:

Well, I unfortunately did not win… AGAIN! But, another excellent review. This looks like a much more reasonably priced electric bicycle… suspension… check… disc brakes… check… 500 watt hour battery… check… 500 watt motor… check. Not sure why some companies charge so much when clearly it is possible to offer a solid product at this price point. The only thing I would like to see different on this bike is a torque sensor, but aside from that it looks pretty good to me. Thumbs up.

finally a afforrdable ebike. i tired of these companys trying to RIP us off with some of these bikes for 5 grand when they’re worth maybe2. this isnt powerful enouhg for me but style isn’t too bad. good review buddy keep up the good work.

Brett M says:

This looks just like the Aventon pace 500

city slick says:

Nicely done, sir. Love the review style here and appreciate the conciseness. Just the right amount of information. Not really my style of e-bike — I prefer single speeds mostly — but if I were to get another e-bike I could see pulling the trigger on this. How are the handlebars? They look a little funky. Are they comfortable?

Hillary says:

The bike is so sleek!

Alan H says:

You should review more of these ebikes for “regular” people, I’m getting sick of watching 5k+ ebikes I’m never going to buy.

Life Yang says:

That bike is totally lit! I especially love the fact that it can go 25mph, it’s 500 watts, it has disc brakes, that the battery is at least semi integrated, and that it’s affordable. Dope!

What size battery?

Robert Chien says:

I love the leather on the metal. Would love to win this one!
