Yes,try a "Vado" vs a sub$900 ( all A lot of us can afford) Ebike
What's your point?

I made it clear that the quality ebikes that I own don't have issues.

Not entirely sure why you are assuming what I own or do not own.

I turn mine off as much as I can. Going down hill and on flat terrain. Something else that reduces drag is down shifting. Mine has ten gears and third, forth, and fifth are all peddleable without juice from the battery. If I can’t keep the cadence up around 50 - 60 rpm then I look for help from the battery. Yesterday I went for 17 miles with 1,200 ft in elevation gain and still have 72% charge.
