Hi Jason, Nothing has defeated my Model 30 yet, and we have some pretty serious hills here on the Isle of Man.
As long as you don’t expect to hold 30 mph uphill you’ll be fine, on the very steepest hills mine will slow down to around 15 mph, but then it just sits at that speed until the top, and it’s still passing all the cyclists on the way up, even the serious Lycra brigade pumping furiously.May 22, 2016 at 8:27 am #2768AlanParticipant
Any news on the arrival date of the new E30?May 22, 2016 at 10:26 am #2769
We currently expect the shipment to arrive in August. We will probably put up a PREORDER offer once we have a confirmed date.

Is there any news on the accessories being updated to include battery chargers for the model 30? I notice only model 14 and 15 chargers are available, there’s no 60v option. I can order these from China, but I was hoping to see what the ‘official’ one would cost/how long delivery would be before having to wait a month for one to arrive from oversees….
Still not sure why the original one packed in though, but it’s not working and I need to get a charge in so that I can carry on feeling superior on the roads!

No we don’t have much demand for 60V chargers hence they are not on the website. We do have them in stock however and I will arrange to send you one.

Ken, while we’re on the subject of spares, can I get hold of a new right-hand mirror? The stem’s fine, just the back of the frame got knocked and the glass has split into three pieces.July 19, 2016 at 11:52 am #2929
If you could send us an email we will get a replacement mirror sent out to you.August 13, 2016 at 3:07 pm #3005raymond griffithsParticipantAugust 13, 2016 at 4:48 pm #3006
If were sitting on the bike, the right.September 20, 2016 at 4:23 pm #3080kasParticipant
Hi I need information again, I did have Battery problems that was partly solved as the bike on a full charge will only take me about 20 miles. It has dropped again so I tried checking terminal tightness, I checked the circuit breaker and when I tested it the breaker broke. Can I get new ones or can anybody tell me the Amperage so I can get a new one. Thanks KasSeptember 20, 2016 at 4:45 pm #3082
Sorry to hear of your problem. Could you please email us direct on [email protected] and we will get this solved.

Now people have had their Model 30s for a while, how many kilometres have people done and how are your bikes / batteries?June 16, 2017 at 4:59 pm #3874
I’ll expand on why I’m curious… I needed my batteries replacing after 1000km as my range had dropped to 5.5 miles, which at the time seemed unusual. However after doing another 1000km the range has dropped again to 5.5 miles, which is sad as it’s only 10 months old.
What are other peoples’ experiences with age, range and mileage?June 17, 2017 at 1:19 am #3875
That does seem a little odd Jason, my original Model 30 did around 2000km and the batteries did start to loose their edge a little but not dramatically, I think I was still getting around 14 miles without any problems when the new bike arrived.
I now have the newer Model 30 city but haven’t really tested the range yet as it tends to do lots of little 4-5 mile trips, the longest round trip I’ve done on it has been around 12 miles which it did easily.
My old bike is now on loan to a friend of mine but she hardly ever uses it, even so the batteries are still holding up ok with a fortnightly Maintenence charge and it does the odd 5-6 mile trip with hills and doesn’t complain.June 17, 2017 at 10:29 am #3876
Thanks Paul, that’s helpful. I was reluctant to post my battery experiences here as I didn’t want to put off potential buyers, but it sounds like they’re vastly different to yours!
Hopefully I’ll get a response to my email to support soon…
