Giant also has the LIv line which is women specific designed. I helped my sister in law choose the Amiti E+ 1 She even bought a 2nd battery so now she can ride with us all over hells half acre. http://www.giantvancouver.com/ca/bikes-amiti-eplusOh yes nice. I really like the Giant one. So it’s just Bosch Vs Yamaha now! Yamaha motor has more torque for sure.
congratulations, and that was fast! You were supposed to demand:
Well I have a well used MEC Burley Bee that you can have for $20. It is faded and the velco is tired but works fine. My grandaughter hates getting strapped in to carseats and bikeseats so I don't need it. If you want it you can send me a message using the inbox.No I don’t!
Looks like a nice ride, enjoy!
Thank you so much! I don’t need one quiet yet. Just wanted to make sure the bike could have one! Merry ChristmasWell I have a well used MEC Burley Bee that you can have for $20.

Any tips to save the battery are appreciated!Looks like a nice ride, enjoy!
Now for you to decide if you're just going to "charge and forget" and replace your battery a little more frequently, or engage in a little in the way of best charging practices and replace your battery a little less frequently.
There are lots of threads about it here. A very, very, very brief overview of best practices includes:Any tips to save the battery are appreciated!
Awesome!! Thanks so much. I did just store it fully charged for a few days but hopefully it’s all good. thanks!There are lots of threads about it here. A very, very, very brief overview of best practices includes:
- give the battery at least a half hour or so to come up to room temperature in the winter (or down to room temperature in the summer) before recharging; avoid charging when the battery is cold, such as in the shed in the winter
- avoid the battery sitting around in direct sunlight on a hot day, by locking it up in the shade, storing it away from windows, etc.
- try to avoid draining the battery below 20%
- try to avoid charging it above 80%, such as using a wall timer to stop it from charging after a certain period of time
- if you must charge above 80% (such as for a very long ride), do so as close to right before the ride as is convenient (as opposed to the night before), as storing the battery at 100% charge is damaging to its longevity
- consider using a timer that you put into the wall, so that you can set the charger up to start in the morning of the ride, so that it's good to go once you finish your breakfast (or whatever time of day you need it)
Look up the threads on this site for all the reasons why these are best practices, if you're curious. And I recommend you only do the best practices that are convenient to you, don't get so stressed about it that you're not enjoying using the bike anymore! Better to enjoy the bike, even if you're not treating it optimally, than to not want to use the bike for fear of recharging it being a hassle, eh?
