I came across this urban commuter style ebike that looks very comfortable and has a lot of nice features on it. Has anyone seen this bike? Check out the full specs here.

I notice how some ebike descriptions now state the peak output of the motor. My guess is that this is a 250 watt motor, not a 500 watt motor. But of course, 500 sounds better, so that is the number they use. Otherwise, it looks like a very basic bike and could work for someone if they can do a lot of repairs themselves. I did not see anything on their website about a warranty or service options.

If it's 500 watt peak then I'm assuming it has a 300 watt motor. I see that it does have a 36v 10Ah which should give this bike a nice kick to it and decent range. With a multi level of PAS, 6 speed, rear rack, fenders, even headlights for $899 free shipping is a hell of a deal!

Yes you are right, featurewise, it is a very good deal. For someone who wants an entry level bike and is willing to take a chance on the quality and reliability, it could be ideal. Do you know how well they stand behind their products?

When I purchase the Cemoto Folding dual suspension bike from them, I was very impress. They had excellent customer service and shipping is free and quick from them. Now I see them with a new arrival of the City Commuter and E08 Folding bike, it caught my attention. I see it listed as 3 month warranty on these 2 bikes. My current Cemoto bike (avatar) have not had any issues since I got it back in May and I ride it daily. The build quality is solid and you can tell from the welds on the bike. The battery is still going strong and Electrobikeworld sell parts and replacement battery.

Good to know. There would seem to be an opening in this price range for a company that can provide a decent enough product and support.

I agree, I've seen many bikes like this with same specs and features from the big brand names that go for $1500 to 2000. That's just out right robbing people! It's small companies like this who really cares for people especially with a budget.
