bike received, this thing turned out HUGE. and i like it!
i thought that it will be smaller than my 29er, not the case.
anyway here is a short story.
after months of searching around and finally accepting the fact that 1500 watts isn't enough and i do not have the time and space to build my own high powered bike, chose to go with the vector.
costumer service is good, all of my emails and questions got replies, wouldn't be sending too much emails if the site had sufficient information.
initial payment was done on the 19th of April, 3 weeks later my bike was ready for shipping and i received it today.
big brown box
nice and secure, no scuffs or scratches
those two 203mm brakes look huge on a 24 tire
charger and coil
aluminum pedals? not going to use them prefer nylon
mud guards but no hardware included
here you can see the front light and dropper seatpost
installed a 800mm handlebar, longer stem, mirror, old school horn and grips.
cons so far through the assembly,
wiring is a bit tight i had to undo some of the cable management , easy to solve.
front light is only held by two tiny screws , fell while building, easy fix.
chain is super tight and pedaling is resestive, hopefully by time the chain loosens up a bit, its not a pedaling bike anyway.
took it for a short 6 mile ride, this thing PULLS.
PAS is a Pain , never had it in any of my bikes and this shows why, it doesnt feel good at all.
take it to normal mode and it just accelerate, nice and powerful just the way i like it, tuned the suspension a bit and got 58 kmh on a short INCLINE , my other bike does 32 kmh WITH pedaling.
sadly the area where i drove today didnt allow the power of boost mode.
in 6 months of riding my other electric bike i only got asked twice if it is an electric bike, today i got 2 "how many cc's?" and 4 "is this a bicycle with an electric motor?" and 3"how could someone ever pedal this fast".
the bike feels like a cruiser in the way it rides and handles, not the perfect "small city" bike but certainly does the job.
dont mind my bad mudguard job
