I've had this bike for a little while now and feel I have had good opportunity to test it out. I used to walk everywhere. My commute is not far but I rack up between 5-10 miles a day just going between school, nursery and work and was struggling to make it everywhere on time, even when jogging. I'm amazed by the difference this bike has made to my life, by how fast I can zip around the city! Also how enjoyable it is. I have a Bobike toddler seat on the back, it fits well and feels secure. My toddler loves the nursery run now and riding on 'our bike'. Having hardly been on a bike in the last 20 years, I was a bit wobbly at first, particularly with the extra weight of the toddler seat, and I felt the bike was too big for me at just under 5ft 3. It is a very big looking bike and is heavy (which is something to keep in mind if you have to try and carry it upstairs). Now though, my confidence has increased and I find it comfortable to ride so am glad I didn't go for a smaller version. The hills are a breeze, the electric pedal assist is fantastic and bike operation is incredibly straightforward. Eco Bike Co were great to deal with, I had a couple of small issues but they replied quickly and offered helpful solutions.
The joy of getting on a bike again, reminiscent of my teenage years. Brilliant solid build, absolutely fantastic!
This is my first venture into E Bikes and I have to say I am left very impressed. The Eco Bike co were brilliant to deal with and I was left feeling supported throughout the process.
In relation to the bike itself, it's an impressive bit of kit for the money. As a commuter bike, for me it offers the capability of my road bike and the ease of use you would expect from an E Bike.
My only negative I have is I feel it runs out of gears very quickly. I can easily pull away on the highest gear which in my opinion you shouldn't be able to do on a road style bike. This means that when you are on a flat and don't need the motor you can't go fast at all.
That said as a commuter bike and as an all round bit of kit it is very good.
I wanted two folding ebikes so that I could take them on holiday without a roof rack. The MATE bikes are perfect. I can get them set up in five minutes and charge the removable battery in the hotel room. They're really good on tarmac or gravel roads and carry me (14st) up any hill we came across. Brilliant.
Purchased Mi Rider electric bike, very good bike, delivered in 2 days
Everything about the bike suits my wife's preferences from the colour to the more upright sitting position - more of a Dutch style. I love it as well because we can now go on longer and hillier rides together (I'm on a non electric bike). We did have an initial problem with the hall sensor that detects the pedal motion, but the after-sales service was excellent - Emu arranged for a mobile mechanic to come and replace the part without any fuss. Would I buy it again? definitely, but probably would have gone for the larger battery - but that's because it's working out so well.
