I bought this Ecotric Starfish pedal assist folding bike to replace my 20 inch folding bike. We plan on mounting it on the back of our motor home for auxiliary transportation. Just received it today and spent about 15 minutes assembling. I am pleased with the quality of build, the locking mechanism, adjustable height for the seat and handlebar. The 350W motor is very quiet and pushes me along at a comfortable speed. I like the choices of the 3 assist modes with the option of using throttle only. At a little over 52 lbs, I can handle lifting it onto a bike rack. The bike was shipped in protective packaging and was not damaged, not even a scratch. Couldn't be happier. I chose this product over other similar bikes because it came with a 350W motor instead of a 250W, fenders front and back and a rear rack. The shape of the frame makes this one of the easiness bikes to get off and on. The price is also unbeatable...
Hello I just want to complement Electric bike pros for there customer service and High Quality E-Bikes. I have been looking at E-Bikes from many manufactures and sellers for several years. I have found that there are more expensive E-Bikes from other Companies that are really not much better than these. Then there are less expensive E-Bikes but they are cheaper because, they are cheaper. Trust me the cheaper bikes are not worth fooling with. You want to have a good quality Bike and start off with a Good Warranty as electric bike pros offers. As for our 2 Ecotric Starfish Bikes we have. We have had them about 4 months now and have ridden them about a dozen times. Now when we ride... we ride. We go anywhere from 20 to 30 miles. We have learned the range we can get out of them when using Pedal Assist to be about 35 miles in most areas. They are pretty easy to pedal with no electric motor assist. So even if we do go beyond that 35 mile range, we can just pedal power, so we don't worry too much about it. The Bikes have had a few minor issues and Ecotric has been awesome to deal with and get things resolved. If you ever need service just go through the same E-Mail you received after ordering your bike as a confirmation. One of the best parts about our Starfish E-Bikes is they fold and fit in the back of or Nissan Kicks perfectly. You will not find a better E-Bike for the Money. We are very happy with our Bikes. Thanks, Bob K.
great electric bike. I am very happy with this bike! I use this bike to commute to work everyday. About 13 miles round trip. It saves me time and money and enjoy the ride.The bike is easy to carry, it fold right up. I did a lot of research before buying this electric bike, It is priced right and you get a lot more than you pay for! I like that it takes me 10-20min to get to school. There is an immediate boost of power the second you get on so the only reason to go to the next level is if you are truly ready to ride. Great electric bike that you will definitely enjoy! You wont be disappointed with this purchase.
My electric bike arrived last week and it's been great! It rides on dirt trails and paved paths and it works flawlessly. If you're curious about electric bikes, but don't want to leap immediately into some of the very expensive options out there, this bike is a good starting point. Very good-looking shiny color. The front brake is extra strong! The rear rack works great holding my luch and book bags, making this compact bike an effective hauler for trips to the shop, and for carrying my book to study. Overall, I'm having fun alot of fun with electric my starfish bike and love it.
I love this bike. I am 63 years old and do not get out much due to not being able to walk very far. I have used this bike to go to CVS to get my med's, and that is a three mile round trip. I live in a valley and the hill is very steep to get out, and about five blocks long. I use the pedal-assist to get up the hill. Then as my legs tire I switch to pure electric mode till I recover. The cargo rack fits my bags and I can tote back some groceries like milk, eggs, bread etc.-etc. all about 50Lbs. and two mile round trip. I put about fifteen miles a week on the bike, but that will soon change when the weather breaks. The battery holds up well, and I am planning to piggy back another battery. But as is it's a GREAT buy for the money. Hope this helps some one that is looking for a GREAT! ebike.
