Had an issue with the battery charger yesterday. Didn’t seem to be charging the battery. It would click between red and green lights for a few minutes and then switch off. Called tech support at Currie Technology. Lady seemed a bit baffled. Then she had me put the battery on the bike and turn it on. FULL charge… WTF?! I think this bike has been put together and then put back into the box. Oh well. As long as the battery doesn’t futz out on me before it’s time, I’ve got no problems. She did say I needed to fully run the battery down and recharge it three times. Okkkkkkkkay.
This thing is a BEAST! And a hoot to ride. The pedal assist works like a champ. I rode around the neighborhood (close by) as I didn’t want to be stranded with a 56 pound bicycle that I’d have to manually push or ride. This thing is freakin’ heavy.
So I’ve been out for a couple hours. I rode it up the 5 floors of the parking garage at least 4 times. Still have a half a charge it looks like. The twist and go wouldn’t pull me up the ramps, but the pedal assist worked beautifully. And the twist and go throttle works pretty good on flat (or mostly flat) ground. It will really get up and GO! Think the documentation said it had a top speed of between 15 and 20 MPH. I believe every bit of that. Holy crap! Sure gave my fat ass somewhat of a workout pedaling up 5 floors. *laughs*
Anyway, here’s a teaser shot. The Beast:
More to come.
What a great idea these eBikes are!
