I know a few of you forum members are still around, but is anyone buying any of the izip express bikes on EBay? There is a huge closeout going on and i just won one of these bikes for $50 shipped.... they retailed for $3000

Obviously its missing battery and front end but out of curiosity for $50 they are a steal! Miles said he didnt like how to evo drive changes the pedal ratio when the motor is not engaged, but i have plans to power the bike with a regular hand throttle.

Either way if you didnt know about the closeout sale go buy one before they are gone, the motor alone is worth more.

Looks like a good enough deal--potentially $60 or so for the basic third of an ebike (still needs a fork, steerer, handlebar, brakes, shifters, front wheel, brakes, cranks, pedals, battery, battery case and mounting, possibly controller, etc, which could be a fair bit of money all together unless one has them all laying around).


BTW, I think this is the manual:

just threw a Shimano 8 speed cassette on it, just waiting for a cheap fork to come in the mail then I can put the rest of the bike together. I had a fork kicking around but this frame has an unusually long head tube, even longer than the old EVG e-bikes and it was already cut too short!

Hey Skeetab5780
Did you get your Express together.
I bought one too, put an X-Go 36v by 10ah on it and did some test runs. It's a different beast ,for sure, especially with a hand throttle.
What was your experience?

I actually have too many bikes on hand, so I threw the frame in the dumpster like I did with all the EVG bikes...I'm not the smartest shopper

I took the rear wheel, the motor and belt for a project some day. I did a ton of research on this bike and most say it did not ride that good, I think if you take the pedal sensor off and run a after market controller like I bought with a regular throttle it would be nice!

I also used the very nice brand new handlebars, stem, seat post and seat on my other Ebike and that alone was worth the auction price!

And I used the nice sealed bearing headset on a Voloci bike that needed an upgrade!
