GreenEdge CS2 Electric Mountain Bike Image
5 star review as promised!Username: PJHawkhurst18 Jun 16
In November 2015 I chose the CS2 for my first electric bike. I bought the bike about 8 months ago after testing a few at E-Bikes direct and it is one of the best purchases I have ever made. The small wheel foldable bikes are great for road cycling and packing in the car but the CS2 specification was great value for me; the CS2 looks good, has 6 gears, disk brakes, suspension, a decent Samsung battery and is one of the lightest. I love this bike; I felt 12 years old again at my first hill, cycling is fun again. I am 64 and I had been ill for 2 years before serious heart surgery in 2014. The surgery went OK but after 7 months I developed chronic ectopic beats which after a year the doctors could not stop. Unbelievably after I had used the bike for a few weeks the ectopic beats subsided and have now completely gone, blood pressure and pulse are fantastic. It is great fun being able to exercise outdoors at my chosen limit or to go somewhere without the car. The CS2 is light enough to pedal without power but I use the power whenever I wish to keep a steady pace, in a headwind or on uphill sections (and get envious looks as I pass other cyclists).  Some statistics, I have used the bike once or twice a week for leisure with a mix of road and firm woodland trails, averaging 10 miles each ride with a maximum of 18 miles with 30% or more battery life left and averaging 12 mph. A typical ride has 400m elevation (smart watch). Charge time is about 1 ½ hours after 8 miles. Matt and the team at E-Bikes have been fantastic. They are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful they have a large selection of bikes and all accessories at fair prices. For a little over the price of one year’s membership at my local sports centre it’s a no-brainer, just try one out you will be amazed.

Wheeeeeeeeee!Username: grahamst17 Jun 16
I`ve had the bike for 6 months and have covered a fair few hundred miles. I`ve had no reliability problems and the only issue I had was due to me messing up the controller and e-bikes direct quickly sorted that out (and without telling me I`m an idiot.) I`ve already saved its cost in fuel and reduced insurance for my car, which has only been filled up three times since I bought this machine; that`s how good it is.  First, a word or two of warning: If you want a motorcycle, buy a motorcycle; you still have to pedal this bike. If you`re neither knackered nor old and you don`t have steep hills to climb, spend your money on a really good standard bike - you will go a lot further a lot faster. If, like me, you`re old AND knackered (gippy knees from an old accident) AND have steep hills to climb it`s the only way you`ll get back in the saddle. Any one of those should also make you consider this - even my Belgian friends love them and they don`t have hills. BUT, so you make the right decision:  I doubt that the range is 35 miles unless you are doing most of the work, in which case I suggest you splash £800 on a really good, lightweight, standard bike that won`t run out of power. Using maximum assist (level 5 plus the probably illegal overriding of the speed limiter) in the Sussex hills, I`ve been down to the flashing symbol after 15 miles and the most I`ve managed, with assist level 3, is 25 miles on moderately hilly terrain - but note that I`ve never actually managed to flatten it; living at the top of a 600 foot hill is a big disincentive to discovering how much reserve there is. Unassisted it`s very hard work and the gearing is optimised for assisted cycling, not power-off, so you`ll be walking up the hills and puffing like a sclerotic steam train elsewhere once you`ve flattened the battery. A spare battery is £250.  It`s blooming heavy, even if it`s one of the lightest ebikes you will find. I can lift my standard bike with one finger; I need a whole hand to lift this thing. Forget taking it on the train, you`ll have a cardiac arrest trying to carry it over the first footbridge.  The gearing runs out at about 20mph, at which point your legs are a blur. The assist has stopped at 15mph so you`re not going to keep up with the lycra loonies along the flat (uphill is a different matter - the wicked enjoyment of the grey haired old git cruising past a puffing proto-peletoniste up a steep hill is a defining life experience; make sure you whistle a happy tune and are sitting upright with only one hand on the bars for maximum effect.)    Now to the specifics:  e-bikes direct are as good as the bike so buy from them.  The bike is easy to assemble but the manual is rubbish (= once I`d managed to put it in page order I discovered it was for a different bike and it was written in laughable Chinglish.) But e-bikes sorted out any questions and also emailed a manual on how to use the speed control that was actually useful.   The saddle is probably fine for a fit youngster; it was rapidly replaced with something more comfy.  It takes time to get used to the assist modes. You can dawdle around in the low levels. Assist cuts out at about 7mph at level 1 and in roughly 2mph increments up to level 5 where you`ll get 15mph. The amount of assist actually increases if you`re pedalling faster, which seems counter-intuitive. Once the assist stops, especially at the higher levels, it can feel as if someone has thrown the brakes on; having it cut in and out on a shallow incline is really annoying - better to drop an assist level and get pedalling. Overriding the 15mph speed limiter does stop this but it also encourages you to use more battery and you could end up flat as opposed to flat out.  The hand throttle is one of the best safety features ever as you can set off on an incline with no dangerous wobbling. I understand that it`s limited to 4mph on the latest bikes but that`s enough to get you going.  The battery has its own charge indicator that doesn`t match the controller`s, showing much more charge. As noted above, I`ve never actually flattened the battery so I don`t know which is correct.   Charging takes time; you need to allow 8 hours for a full charge. I`ve seen reviews on other sites complaining about sparks when connecting and disconnecting the battery; the instructions tell you to turn the charger off with good reason - the voltage and current are of a level used in welding small components. So, make sure you turn the charger off before connecting/disconnecting the battery and ignore those reviews.   The suspension is superb. It smooths out the potholes and doesn`t dive under braking. I`ve seen reviews elsewhere that question its strength (though with no evidence) but I can`t imagine the average ebiker flying down a boulder-strewn mountain at 50mph and it`s been fine on my off-road jaunts.   The disc brakes are a revelation to someone who has only experienced juddering from buckled rims, rubber blocks that fly out at the worst possible moment and total absence of stopping in the wet. These are smooth and efficient in all weathers.  Buy the model with the mudguards - I didn`t and struggled to find any that would fit; you need the type that connect to the holes in the forks where the brakes would fit if it had conventional brakes. You will want them as you`ll quickly decide that cycling in the rain on your ebike is preferable to being stuck in the traffic in your car.   Lastly, it`s a highly desirable bit of kit. Buy yourself the very best lock you can find and get yourself a rucksack so you can take the battery with you if you`re leaving it anywhere dodgy.  Enough of this; I`m off for a ride.

Great commuter bike Username: Andy_10 Apr 16
I bought this bike in January and have used it for commuting to work every day of February and March so have ridden about 900 miles on it so far (approx 20 mile round trip). Originally bought to save money and time (traffic in Manchester is terrible).     My commute is a mix of road, tow path and bike trail and this bike happily covers it all. I probably average about 17 mph most of the way, so don`t always need the power assist but it`s invaluable for hills and especially when the wind is against you. Usually only use about half to two-thirds of the battery each day, but does go down much faster if very windy/hilly or using throttle a lot. If I`m having a lazy day and using lot of power assist then the battery easily covers my journey.     Recommend buying some decent tyres for it though (I use schwalbe marathon without any punctures in 2 months so far). I originally got puncture after a few miles with original tyres and the wheels are quite difficult to get off and back on with no quick release.    If you`re considering this bike for commuting to work that is less than 10 miles away then it`s perfect. Good for both slower easier more power-assisted rides, as well as faster rides where you may not use power assist much.

Oxygen Step Through Electric Bike 15ah disc Image
Ideal bike for touringUsername: furrymo31 Mar 16
I ordered this bike as an upgrade from my 20” wheeled folding bike which I’d happily zipped around on but felt a larger wheeled bike with a greater battery capacity would be more suited to my cycle touring and, having looked at many models, chose the Oxygen E-Mate due to its potential 70-mile range, size – not many step-through bikes can cater for my 34” inside leg, its chunky tyres, suspension forks for our bumpy lanes and its overall design. When it arrived, I was not disappointed.    Delivery was exactly as advised and it arrived in perfect condition, despite the courier company clearly standing the packing box in water rendering it a soggy mess. Luckily the original manufacturer’s box was inside E-Bike’s additional box providing double protection. The bike arrived ready set-up, with even the computer set and, once the pedals were screwed in and the handlebars straightened, I spent a few minutes adjusting the saddle and handlebar heights, oiling moving parts and then it was ready to go.    Build quality is good with branded components used and it looks like a quality bike. It is very smooth to ride, the twist-grip engages all gears accurately with no grinding and the 5 pedal assist power levels cater for all riding styles: levels 1 and 2 would be ideal for rough canal towpaths with no danger of the bike zooming into a canal, 3 is the default for flattish roads while levels 4 and 5 are needed for inclines and hills and can be supplemented by a boost from the throttle. The saddle is a bit on the hard side but soon remedied via the use of a gel cover.    The range appears to live up to its stated specification of up to 70 miles with pedal assist. I’ve taken it on a 45 mile hilly ride with 20% gradients and on returning home, 3 of the 6 bars on the battery power display remain even following this quite challenging ride.    Although this is a 2015 model bike, ie prior to the 2016 change in legislation, I had expected the throttle to work independently of the pedal assist but – no, it doesn’t. The pedal assist must be engaged and activated via pedalling then the throttle provides an additional boost, unless the motor is already working at capacity.    There is nothing I dislike about this bike and it is one I would highly recommend, particularly for longer rides and cycle touring.
