Rated 5 out of 5 by FCrider Best Value I had bought a used Currie for my wife, liked it so much I bought this new one for me. Walmart.com was very competitive on price. I was unable to ride a standard bike more than 3 or 4 blocks but with this electric assist I can cover the entire city, hills and all. 10/04/2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by 17goodenough Fun to ride. About what I expected. It's pretty quick but keep your battery charged. I'm using mine as a commuter to work and back. I guess I use the PAS mode the most ( pedal assist) to make the battery last. To use this function, you gotta keep the throttle forward and pedal. If you stop pedaling, the motor will stop assisting in a few seconds.The TAG mode ( twist and go) is super fun and works kinda like a motor cycle. You can pedal along in this too but the battery will be operating at 100% instead of 50% like in PAS mode. I put a Wald removable front basket on mine for shopping needs. Looks nice in black.Now for the bad. This thing is heavy! Shouldn't be a problem if you have a garage. I'm in an upstairs apartment so I had to learn how to carry it properly. You'll have to make 2 trips cause you'll wanna remove that battery first ( it's heavy, too). For the battery, make sure you have locked it into position or it'll bounce out of contact with bumps. No problem, just lock it.This is an entry level eBike. It works. It's functional. If you like going along at a good clip while not pedaling hard, this may be for you. Might take a few rides to get the total hang of it, but it's pretty simple. It's not the ugliest bike to look at either. Fix it up. Add some bells and whistles. If I woulda had more money, I would have got something with a lithium battery and with an internal hub motor. I believe with an internal hub motor, you probably won't even draw anyone's attention. External motor? mmmm...maybe. If you ride safe, no attention drawn. There seems to be some grey area in some states to laws about eBikes but for an old timer like me...I doubt they'll throw up any road blocks. I know you can easily spend 2000 or more on a nice eBike. They're lighter and fancier. Like a pair of shoes, you get what you pay for. Watch some youTubbe videos for extra reveiws.Anyway, I like it. It works. It's fun. No buyers remorse. I gave one star less cause of the weight. No more gas station. 03/30/2013
Rated 3 out of 5 I think that electric bikes are over price because of the battery. I only had this bike for a week now and I think it is a good value compared to other electric bikes. Time will only tell on the battery. But was inpress with the power of the bike I weight 200#. 11/24/2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Descartes2020 Great for college student or the daily cycler. Excellent bicycle, it's a bit on the expensive side; nevertheless, electric bicycles pretty much only exist under this brand (to my knowledge). Battery is on the heavy side, and it does take a minimum of six hours to charge; however, there are upgrades available through the manufacturer that offer lighter and more charging time efficient upgrades (ex, lithium-ion) to replace the standard lead battery. Wal-Mart has no problem putting it together for no charge as long as it's site-to-store shipping (which is a free option). The speed is wonderful, if you're planning on fully using the battery to ride (TAG) then it'll only work at its peak performance for a few miles, before it'll need to be charged again (with the standard included battery). It is possible to use the back rack as a seat, but it is extremely uncomfortable due to the construction of the metal. Acceleration is great (when battery is full) and the breaks work wonderfully, though I've experienced squeeking shortly after using (a few days after). 09/13/2012
