I have had my ERider Model 15 for 10 days now and in that time I have done around 100 miles so decided it was time I wrote my review.
The bike was well packaged and not too difficult to unbox.
The instructions were not for this model and the english translation was not very good.
Putting the bike together was not too much of a hassle.
I found the quality to be ok but the finish could have been better. The battery is labelled 48v 10ah not 48v 12ah and the motor is labelled 200w not 250w, however I have been told that this is simply mislabelling by the manufacturer.
Speed, Distance & Hills
On even terrain with peddling I get good speeds with up to 30mph downhill.
At 6’3″ 17st I can get around 13 miles of varying terrain including hills of 14% grade before the battery starts to struggle.
Going up hill does require some peddling but is not too difficult.
I have found that the bike definately turns alot of heads in a positive way. I have people pulling beside me to take a look and often get a big smile or thumbs up as well as others asking what the bike is and where I got it from.
The peddle arm bolts were loose so these had to be tightened.
I replaced my peddles with some with better grip as I found my feet were slipping on the peddles.
I had to tighten the brakes as they were not tight enough to slow me properly downhill.
My chain came off 4 times in one day, I believe the cause of this was the plastic ring on the rear sprocket becoming loose and cause the chain to slip. Since removing this ring I have not had the chain slip once.
I have fitted a front and rear camera for my own peace of mind.
Peddling will boost your speed significantly.
Check peddle arm bolts are fully tightened.
As I ride mostly during the night and living in a built up area I did not want to be a nuisance to the neighbours with the beep beep when the battery was inserted or the ignition switched off. To combat this when starting the bike I unlock the seat box, put the key in the ignition and switch the bike on then flip the master switch inside the seat box. When finishing a ride I leave the ignition on and use the spare key to unlock the seat box and switch off the master switch before turning off the ignition.
Overall I am happy with my ERider Model 15 but do have concerns with the mislabelling of the product.
