I know what you mean, it makes one wonder. I wouldn't be worried about it though. If it was considered a return on investment or a consumer related tax, it would be a very small liability on an individual basis. The whole story is very interesting to watch and I can't help but be impressed at the quantity and speed Sondors gets things done from the East to the West.Jr- Could the tax man go after the crowd funders? Got me thinking.
Welcome to the community! I enjoyed the EC1 but of course it was priced a bit higher when crowd funded and then the price jumped substantially after. The EC1 has 21 gears which is great for pedaling at a range of speeds and also offers an LCD display where you can adjust assist level as well as a thumb throttle like the Sondors Thin. One other thing I liked about the EC1 was the suspension fork because these city bikes tend to be a bit more stiff and the body position was forward so it could get uncomfortable riding over longer distances. Hope these insights help, here's the full review on the EC1 http://electricbikereview.com/daymak/ec1/I've been following this forum for some time, but now am an official member, so Hi to all. With the belt drive being a $150 upgrade to the May deliveries, I was wondering what folks thoughts are on this? Also, if you are familiar with Daymak's offering of their carbon EC1, what is the bottom-line comparison between these two economically priced e-bikes?
Thanks George! I was focusing in on the belt drive option and missed the other details... really appreciate your keen eyeI think it's available in both colors in the USA. Maybe I'm missing something. On the pre-order it was around $200 shipping, but they showed you that when you went to PayPal. You don't have to buy, at that point. I'm sure you could get it if you went through the form. Thumb throttle?
Not much to review. It's nice looking.
