I had stepped away from e-bikes altogether for about two years. It was nice being able to hop onto a bike and pedal and not having any range worries. I suppose I fell in love with the simplicity of things.
Road bikes were never my thing, and my commuter remained a mountain bike.
What actually brought me full circle to e-bikes was actually wanting to get a dual sport motorcycle. Google brought me to interesting places. I was almost going to buy one of those Boom 2000w gromlins. The idea of ditching the lead acid batteries and the sheer weight of it was a turn off. The $1200 price tag was quite enticing, but I knew I'd have to drop another grand on batteries.
Then I thought... why not just get a turn key high power e-bike. Stealth and anything HPC seems out of touch price wise, so I started browsing good ol' eBay and stumbled upon this:
I'm not sure how accurate the specs actually are, but I've dealt with conhismotor in the past and Jason provides great customer service. I suppose their eBay store gets a lot more traffic worldwide than their direct website.RisunMotor Exclusive Customized e-Motorcycle Style Super Mountain eBike/FC-1 Stealth Bomber Electric Bicycle(Black Frame)

The mountain biker in me looks at the DNM suspension, Tektro brakes, probably a square taper bottom bracket and cringes a bit. I don't even want to talk about the drive train, but I'm not looking for a mountain bike. Hopefully I don't have to swap all that stuff out. I don't plan on pedaling this bike much.
All the little features seem sort of gimmicky (alarm, auto start, motor lock), and I have a feeling I'm about to embark on an interesting journey.
The frame looks like a Qulbix 76 clone. I like this design a bit more than the HPC wolverine and EDGE (I forget who made the original design... was it Vector?). I also opted to get the 35Ah battery. Conhismotor has always been good about getting things to the west coast (US) pretty quick.
Like my other threads, I'll post updates, mods, photos, and video (if I can ever find someone to help film). Hopefully it will provide folks some more insight on this bike. It seems like most of the folks on this site are builders, but a lot of other folks find their way here looking for something a bit more turn-key.
Well, time to go fix all the broken picture links from my old threads. Facebook is not a good place to host photos.
