Got the bike put together with minor difficulties , a lot of help from the neighbor mechanic!
Its not perfect tho - i need to figure out how to raise the handlebars higher , im leaning forward more than i like.
The battery a lot of times doesn't line up with the deadbolt lock. Annoying! didnt get an owners manual ---they will mail it when it becomes available.

Received the bike Thursday evening , Prodecotech called me Friday morning to see if everything was ok with my bike! Wow i was shocked they called. No i don't work for them! I'm just an average joe in Minnesota. Their customer service has been A++ since i've dealt with them on the phone. The bike was supposed to come with rockshox 28 but mine has the 32's!

Love the bike!!

Please lock down that seat-post:eek:

The handlebar height you have as setup is as high as it will go. You will need to change/add some parts. I could tell you what you need to do, but that wouldn't help, I don't know what you want to do. No one can tell you how you will like your bike, but you. You need to learn about your threadless headset & stem and how to setup the bike properly. It's important for you to know you have a threadless headset, not a threaded headset. That is all important for you to know, to purchase the proper parts to allow you to be fitted to the bike.

I guess Prodeco is finally shipping the bikes with the new design for the battery. That's very impressive. I have a PT X3 and it's a great bike, but the old style battery leaves way too much weight in back. Looks like a great bike.
