Rated 4 out of 5 by Edinpitt Mediocre bike, excellent value as a commuter I had a couple of these before getting rid of the last and going with the Currie Eco-Ride. These Trailz bikes are heavy, the components are cheap and the sealed lead acid battery will stop working unless you charge it after every ride for at least six hours. But they are the cheapest electric bike you can get, and if your commute is five miles or less (in hilly terrain, maybe six on flat), these could be the perfect commuter bicycles. If you ride any further, you will drain the battery below 80% or so and it will never recover. As I say, they must be charged after each ride, which means plugging it in at work for six hours or so, and plugging it in at home right after you get home (the battery is removable, although you could charge it on the bike). If you don't recharge the battery right away it will (again) never recover. The lead acid battery should last from March/April to October/November and a replacement is only $120. You could also upgrade to a much lighter lithium battery for around $450; I don't know what range it has, but they are much more forgiving of being drained or set aside without being charged. The lithium battery would make it possible to ride to a grocery store, a friends house, a movie theatre, etc. Now the combined cost of the Trailz bike and the lithium battery would be about the same as an Eco-Ride, but as least you are paying over time with the Trailz 11/04/2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by manchesterman Fantastic Deal at Walmart, great bike. I bought this bike to commute to work and it has exceeded my expectations. Well built, very solid construction and good battery life. The Power Assist function is excellent and like the cruise control on your car cuts off as soon as you hit the brake. Everything has been very well thought out and the only improvement would be a better padded seat as due to the weight you do feel every bump! 08/29/2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Whompdad A very good value for an e-bike I purchased this bike as my second e-bike (my son has permanently borrowed my first one!)I really have enjoyed this particular bike - set-up was straight forward; the battery charged up and was broken in easily, and I've had good results in terms of the speed and distance. I especially like the pedal assist feature as well as the twist and go throttle. I always pedal continuously, so it is a very nice feature, and it makes a significant improvement in the battery life 08/08/2011
