New Battery Option - 48v 25AH

M2S ( m2sbikes.com ) was selling their bikes at prices that did not include a battery not too long ago. Apparently that didn't work out well for them as they've thought better of that plan and are now back to pricing them with battery.

My point though, is the thought of buying a bike without a battery - IF - you could find somebody willing to do that. Warranty might be an issue here....

That would be fantastic, maybe something to ask of the dealers (doesn't hurt).

... Just realized that the regular Moscow does not come with a throttle which I use often for my city rides (around 60km), the Moscow Plus seems to fit my criteria but the tech seem to be a bit outdated to me for the price. ...

Just a note. The Moscow does have a throttle unless someone with a Moscow (both mine are Moscow+) says otherwise. But Leon certainly sells the replacement throttle for it for $25cdn (shipping incl) if it doesn't come with it. @john peck has a standard Moscow, he can confirm if it included a throttle or not.

I think you're right. A video review of the Moscow on Youtube from EBR confirms this thanks. Unfortunately Leon Cycle Canada only has the 26" model in stock which is too small for me, 27.5" is more ideal. I may also look for a used one at the right price and retrofit that with this battery.

Lol. Leon Canada is 2 for 2 on Moscow misinformation, unless someone says otherwise the Moscow uses the same frame as the Moscow+ and comes in 27.5 and 29 not 26" but maybe that changed? LeonCycle.com and LeonCycle.co.uk still list the Moscow as 27.5 and 29". I own an NCM bike so recommend them but I must say Leon Canada needs to get their information up to date on the Moscow.

Lol. The Canadian Leon Cycle site is actually worse than that. Tried to add the bike to the cart and am unable to even though it says in stock. The phone number for them is unreachable as well. Oh well...back to the drawing board. There are a couple of used ones on Kijiji (Canada's Craigslist), will have to see it it's worth it. Thanks for your help.
 
Rize 19.2AH battery is $749

Expand picture above and see drop down box for the 19.2AH, $749. Jennys 25ah a much better deal, plus for me I ordered the faster charger from her.

Wow, you are trying to give them your hard earned cash and it's like they don't want it. It do believe it's the summer of money for ebike retailers this year but its surprising they aren't on top of the website listing being bad. I've heard the 26" misinformation mentioned somewhere else too I'm sure.

I received my 25AH battery a week or so ago, and it's awesome!! Range is much better with this thing. Best money I have spent on this bike so far!

Here are some pics.

The new battery looks awesome. I like the looks of it much better. This bike already has a bunch of curves, the more square shape of this battery straightens out some of the lines, makes it look better in my opinion.

The new 25AH battery out performs the 19.2ah battery considerably.

My last run with the RIZE 19.2ah battery, fairly typical of what I would get out of it: 41% used at 16.1 miles

I was into the pedal assist more on this longer run as my backside was worn out!

But still crazy numbers! I would have been at 0% on the Rize battery at this mark

51% used at 32.1 miles

Thank you Jenny for getting us such a good product! Super Super happy!

Anyone in the market for a less than year old 19.2 ah Rize battery, shoot me a PM
Thank you for being so satisfied with the new 25Ah battery. And thanks for sharing such specific and clear testing range results.

Glad to see you enjoying the new battery Nashville! I love mine too and keep up the range reports. I still need to bike the battery to exhaustion on a middle range PAS level and report my range but dang the thing lasts forever lolol.

Hahaha! I agree totally. My back side is done between 30-35 miles and this thing still has half a charge left!

I have a 220km trip planned for next weekend (2 days riding with equipment), if I can do it I will bike entirely at middle assist level to get a new range report. I have a friend biking with me though, he hasn't biked since last year so he might want a higher assist level and might cause my pace to vary but I am hoping to get a updated idea of absolute max range from the battery.
