Sorry for the double post , but I just noticed the chance to win a free battery.
I technically don’t qualify for the competition as I am not lucky enough to own an E-rider and so cant write a review 🙁
but after all the bad luck iv’e had with the bike I did buy, maybe i’l hit lucky for a change 🙂
My bike has been nothing but a nightmare.
Its caused so many troubles and worries that if I even mention it to my wife she gos in a mood .
but like I say its not an E-rider , its one of the competitors bikes.
yes it looks identicle, yes it has same specs, yes it probably came from same manufacturer.
This is not where my problems are.
My problems appear to have been caused by the bike being stored in a damp warehouse for months before being sold.
Anyway in the hope of a free battery here is my review on a competitors identicle bike.
In short, it arrived and was relatively simple to put together, for a short while (4 days )it was the best invention in the world.
Then the battery fell appart, the stand snapped on a rusty joint, and the chain snapped whilst peddling up-hill with a car right behind me.
Iv’e had that many problems with it that I wanted to throw it off a cliff but didn’t as it’d probably get me arrested and lead to more problems.
Now I cant even mention the bike to my wife or she gos in a mood.
I recently discovered E-rider and purchased a new battery.
The difference is amazing, I no longer hate my bike, i’m starting to look forward to going out on it
Its the same rubbish bike with its factory installed rust but now it feels usable, even if I can’t stand it up unless theres a wall to lean it on, and my mirrors are wobbly from being pressed against walls.
I no longer want to throw it off a cliff, I now want to repair the wobbly mirrors and the broken stand.
If i had bought a bike from E-rider I think my experience of these bikes would have been a lot better than it was.
Now instead of feeling like i’m riding around on an electric deathtrap. I now feel like the cool granddad on his futuristic silent stealth bike.
Like I said earlier though, this isn’t really a review on an E-rider bike because I wasn’t lucky enough to find them first, I bought from a competitor.
So class this as a review on dealing with the competitor on an identicle bike. You’ve all seen them on ebay , the bikes might be identicle, they might even come from same manufacturer, but its not the same. Theres many differences.
I could write a book on the faults with my bike, some of them are pretty scary but thanks to E-rider the main one has now been rectified (unsafe battery).
I cant do nothing about the factory installed rust on a weak weld joint that caused my stand to snap, but with the help of E-rider I can repair my mirrors and finally get the side stand attached.
So if your looking into buying one of these bikes it’d be advisable to get it from E-rider, if you don’t your likely to end up buying a lot of parts from them anyway.
