Bought this e-bike to use when I go camping. I can ride this bike for a longer time because the motor is helping me peddle . And when I get tired I just use the motor only to get back to the camper. Should have bought one of these years ago.
Well I am still going to buy this product but at Target! Yesterday the price was cut to $29.97 so I bought one, and later that evening my order was canceled. I know Walmart had a many price errors but they posted these prices and should have to honor them. I am fed up and will be shopping a lot less at Walmart.\n\nBy the way this same scooter is $119 and some change at Target.com. I hope some of you scored this scooter at the $29.97 price. I am sure Walmart will not post my comment but thought I would write it anyways.
I just recently bought one of these ezip commuters from a local bike show and really love it. I had one of the less-expensive ones with the heaver battery for years and liked it too, but the battery died after a few years and I was thinking about buying one of the lithium upgrade battery packs Currie offers, but they are about $500 so I figured that I'd try the up dated bike because it had some features I really liked. After about two months, I can say that it was a great decision to upgrade. I just wish I would have waited to buy it from wal-mart because its about $150 less then I paid!
I'm real happy with the bike NOW. As received, the fuse in the battery was intermittent. It took me a while to pin down the problem. The power would randomly cut on and off. The fuse was not blown, just intermittent. It's also just about impossible to find 40 Amp 3AG glass fuses. I had to order them on Amazon.\n\nGreat bike. A tiny bit more QC would have been nice.
I bought this bike for my sons 13th birthday. It is a great quality bike with many great features. Make sure you break in your battery first as instructed. It is a lithium battery. What ever you do, don't buy the bike as a floor model like I did. When I got it home I realized that the bike was missing the battery and charger. Whomever put the bike together didn't accessorize the bike with the battery when they wheeled it to the floor. There were two floor model bikes. I went back to the Walmart I bought it from and talked to the floor manager. They couldn't find the batteries that went to my bike or the other floor model. I wouldn't have bought the floor model if I had known more about them and what the battery looked like. I thought that the rack in the back of the bike housed the battery. Anyway, the store had two unassembled bikes still in the boxes and I asked if they would open the box and give me my missing battery and charger. They can't do that. So I returned the bike and ordered it on-line. It was shipped to the store and I assembled it myself at home. The bike was actually less expensive on-line than the store model. Go figure. The bike was extremely easy to assemble because it is practically already put together for you. Plus you can guarantee you get a good battery and charger still in the box...and you can be assured you'll get all your pieces. Great bike and extremely fun to ride. My 13 year old loves it. It has 2 settings, there is an assist mode where the battery kicks in when you are peddling, and there is an all electric mode...(I call it the fun mode).
OMG I love it I ride after school every day p.s. if you use site to store and have them put it together make sure when u get it home u check under the deck and pug the red wires together if they arnt connected.
This is my second purchase of this item. I bought one last year for my grandchild. It was so well liked I bought another this year for a second grandchild. The scooter handles well and maintains its charge for 6 to 8 hours of riding fun. Top speed is 15 miles per hour which is plenty fast enough for 9 to 11 year old children. You may need to give very stern instructions for safety procedures to\nthe drivers. All in all it is a very good product.
