I once looked into it and all I found was a Nevada company and the final price wasn't much better than what OEMs charge. Maybe $1/wh. I assume it's the same now until proven otherwise. (Lol same thing with the claim that Stromer quality ebikes are available for $2k - assume false until otherwise proven.)to get this back on topic
i am not an expert on rebuilding batteries but it seems you should be able to get that done by a reputable company for a good bit less in the future if you need another battery
so if it was me and i really liked that bike personally would not let that stop me from getting it
with all the ebikes out now rebuilders should keep growing/getting better and you should not need another battery for years
good luck with whatever bike you get
The hidden part of new greenness is not to be discussed. Thank you for your cooperation.Well I hope you’re wrong because all these electric bikes that were sold this year are going to need batteries in 4-5 years and I hope they don’t all end up in the landfill because we cannot get/rebuild batteries for them at reasonable prices
A $3k Stromer seems like a pretty good value, no?

My soil biology text book was $400! Why the fudge aren’t they available as a pdf. Much easier searching and reviewing.You misapprehended, maybe because of your attachments. I'm not under an illusion that publishing is not very expensive, it's that the university admin culture is sick and corrupt at this point and simply encouraging more spending, not even attempting to curb the excesses. There's absolutely no need to have most textbooks replaced as often as they are. No wonder students come out with life-crushing debt and can't think of having a family until they are well past their "best before" date.
A case is under $50. Personally proprietary batteries keep me away from many eBikes. I’d never have a Hailong (shark) case rebuilt . Especially a high Ah with more cells than can fit in the cell holders.Well I hope you’re wrong because all these electric bikes that were sold this year are going to need batteries in 4-5 years and I hope they don’t all end up in the landfill because we cannot get/rebuild batteries for them at reasonable prices
How does Rize look for the bike you might want? Batteries are much more modestly priced.Last message on this thread. I'm researching bikes because I'm going to purchase one. I'm looking at a few brands and I am going to ask about the negative things I've discovered and heard about the brands I'm considering. This thread has been very valuable to me. I learned of a new brand in this thread that is now on highest my list of considerations (thank you). Here, I've also learned about battery cells and construction and that is valuable knowledge. So in the future you will see me asking questions about bikes that aren't positive. But it's just research. I'm an old man who only wants to make his best purchase relative to capability, quality, support AND cost of ownership. I have no bias...I don't care to have involvement with any manufacturer. My present bike is an Ecotric Seagull. Which has served me well AFTER I ironed out a serious problem with breaking spokes. I probably should report my experience here. I got this bike for $1050 after a price reduction due to threatening to return it on their 30 day trial. Rad bikes were selling for $1,699 or $1,799 at the time. Didn't know a thing about bikes. Sometimes I do research about things I purchase (as I am on this thread). Sometimes I just jump in and find out the hard way as I did with my Seagull. It was the cheapest bike I could find. The Seagull has a 1000 watt direct drive motor, which I imagine has abut 50 nm of torque. I live by mountains and so I need more low end, start up torque. With that big battery, Juiced appears to have the most low end out there in 750 watt bikes (for a reasonable price). I want the range to do long rides in the large city I live in (Phoenix) and the surrounding mountains. I was totally hooked on Juiced and was totally disappointed when I discovered the price increase on their big battery. It really became an issue after I destroyed one of my present bike's batteries. Last words on the Seagull. It's a great bike. I climbed South Mountain with it here in Phoenix when I first got it. I honestly thought that it would burn it up. With much less peddle assist than I thought I would need, I passed a few very high end road bikes...with ease. I apologized to them as I passed, "Sorry, it's an E-bike." The Seagull has a very unique frame that I really like (and don't like). Kind of something out of Star Wars, a blade that flies silently because it's direct drive. Anyway, please forgive me if I appeared to be attacking anyone. I need to watch my expenses. So it really is important information to me.
