    Nice that they are finally including the $100 LCD so you have 5 level PAS because it's a defective bike without it.
    $836 shipped and 3 to 4 months waiting time.
    The 8 AH battery will honesty go about 20 miles pedaling hard, don't believe their claims.

    Buy a used one off Craigslist or Facebook this winter.

    I've been eyeing these bikes for a while. I think it would be wise to opt for the longer range battery, think it's something like an 11.8 battery

    $286 for shipping? hummm, kinda like an eBay seller :rolleyes: Seems a bit excessive, don't it. And the chances of finding one on craigslist here in Boise is pretty slim. Guess I go back to building my own when the time comes..... :/

    I've had mine for a year and a half. For the money it's a excellent starting point, especially if you like to build your own bikes. Not that there's anything wrong with the stock bike, but compared to an average eBike usually costing around $3000 it's kind of low frills. Of course that's the whole idea about it only costing $800 (w/shipping).

    The good thing about buying this kind of bike is you can upgrade as you go along. I've got around $2000 in mine now, but it's pretty well equipped, and you'd pay twice as much for a factory bike, and still wouldn't be as nice as my bike.

    This is a thread where I describe my build experience.

    Their shipping used to be around $275. I live some 45 miles from their warehouse in southern CA, and still wanted that price for shipment. I just checked their ordering link, put in my zip code, and there was no charge for shipment, just CA state tax. BUT, you'll still have to wait roughly 90-120 days for shipment.
