Today I took charge of my Erider15 – Gregg the delivery driver was superb, as I work nights I messaged him for an approximate time – he said around 11:00 but he would text me a little closer to the time he would be there. Very professional and helpful, I thank him for that.
Unwrapping was the biggest challenge I think – lots of it, everything well protected. Assembly was quite easy, especially with a mug of coffee 🙂
With battery charged it was time for a final check – everything worked fine. One final check was the tyres, and this is where I am unsure. The front 40psi – the back was 70psi, is this correct. Although I did reduce to 40psi.
Time for work and my 1st erider experience, and it was – absolute awesome, quiet, handled well and was a joy to sit there cruising along at 24kph.
Thank you Ken and team you have made me a very happy man purchasing the erider15.
PS. For anyone wondering if the pedals fold up, they do – you need to push them in and tilt up. another great idea to save your shins 🙂December 21, 2017 at 10:31 pm #4541
I would drop an email to Ken about the tyre pressures, he did post them somewhere on here a while ago but I can’t find the thread now.December 21, 2017 at 10:56 pm #4542
The manual does state 40psi – so guessing something went awry when being assembled. I’ll do that as it could become dangerous if anyone does not check them before ridingDecember 22, 2017 at 1:21 am #4544
Seems strange that your rear tyre was over inflated at the factory. Don’t think it would have been dangerous particularly but would have made for a harder less comfortable ride.
Anyway well spotted and glad you are enjoying your Model15.

I am a happy owner of a E-Rider Rondo.
Thank you Ken and E-Rider team for this wonderful little moped. This is my daily ride to office in the crowded streets of London.
– Sleek and stylish
– Lightweight and compact
– Has a front Disk brake
-Charger doesn’t go in the slot given in the battery. So can’t charge the battery by removing from the moped. Only option is to use the slot in the bike itself with the battery inside.
Is there any way to connect the charger to the battery directly?

That does not sound right at all- the bike has been designed to have the battery removable for charging. We will email you separately and get this issue resolved.January 10, 2018 at 2:24 pm #4588
I am the happy owner of the Erider model 15 special edition i have done roughly 90 miles on it so far and i love it. I did how ever have a problem with the center stand where it started catching the pedals when pedalling. A quick email to erider had that sorted with in a week they was good to me by sending a new stand out and when taking off the old one i noticed the bolt they put in the stand to adjust the height of the stand when folded had got damage on it. The thread had been demolished and so it took the stand with it as the thread in the stand had been ripped out aswell.
I have ridden the bike in the rain and snow and had no problems what so ever.
I have to say the best part about the bike is over taking other cyclists with no effort at all. Before buying this bike i was catching taxis and buses to work so now that i have this bike im saving over £50 a week. Being 22 and having mates who all have cars they think im mad for buying it but that doesn’t bother me as i know this bikes saving me money and thats what matters the most. Ive been pulled by police for no helmet and they thought it was a fully fledged scooter but after explaining what it was to them they left me to it. The look on their faces when pointing out the pedals was pricelessJanuary 10, 2018 at 3:01 pm #4589
I would suggest for your own personal safety you invest in a cycle helmet. That a lone will give you brownie points if / when you get stopped. And of course peace of mind. 🙂January 10, 2018 at 3:27 pm #4590
I have recently brought a open face motorbike helmet as the roads i travel down have cars going down them at 40 and 50 (always get a speeder) so thought it be best to be safe than sorry.January 10, 2018 at 3:44 pm #4591
I wear the full riding gear – Helmet, Jacket, Gloves & Boots. Safety First!
Also, by doing this, I switch to camouflage mode as everyone assumes that I am riding a boring, tiny moped. So, there’s no suspicion / unwanted attention drawn, especially from police.
Only time it backfires is when I take the cycle lanes. I get stares from people, as if saying “Why’s he taking a moped in a cycle lane?!” 🙂
