Got lucky today on buying my first Ebike!

So I have spent 6 weeks researching the right Ebike to buy as the hills here are taking all the fun out of bicycling when you are 66 years old. I grew up biking, always had a nice bike. I read and viewed a ton of bike reviews, first thinking that I would get a foldable but gravitating to a city commuter for the suburbs. I wanted 700 mm wheels rather than the 26" wheels and with thinner 1.75"-2" tires. I wanted to buy the Juiced CrossCurrent X but I didn't want to spend $2500. It had everything I wanted and then some. I figure I would end up buying the Biktrix Swift for $2000 as a compromise to save money. Continually perusing Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace for good deals on ebikes, I saw an ad 30 minutes away for the Juiced CrossCurrent X bought last year with only 500 miles on it. Made contact and picked it up at noon today for $1250. Got it home and when for a short ride. This bike is amazing, hills means nothing to this bike. So thrilled, so happy.

Great find. I am very close by and have been scouring NY/CT CL and FB Marketplace and wasn’t as lucky. Ended up going new, spending about $500 more than my budget but incredibly happy with my choice.

Enjoy your bike!

Nice to see a bike come out of somebody's garage and go to someone who will use it.

This bike is incredible. Wind and hills are no longer a problem for my 66 year old body. I was only using pedal assist level 1 and was going 20 mph easily on flat roads. The torque sensor is amazing. Most fun thing I bought in a few decades. I use the throttle from a standstill to get up to speed.

ok, but if you don't have the skills to repair it or source a good mechanic, it will be very expensive to fix it if issues arise !
I assume it doesn't have warranty, or thatvthr Juiced warranty is not transferable ?

In the meantime, ride it safely , hard and long😉 👌

You can say that about any ebike, lol. With the youtube and the internet I can just about fix anything, lol. Juice warranty is not transferable and it probably near the 1 year term anyways.

I ended up deciding new and major mfg since I am completely un-handy wrt to things mechanical. I know I paid a price for that piece of mind, local support and convenience but I am ok with that.
