New E-bike arrived!

My wife loves her new ebike. It was only $900 and included lights and a bag for the rack.
It has a 500w hub, peddle assist, throttle, foldable, step-thru, top speed of 28mph, fits people from 5' or so to 6'3", etc.
If you're in the market for an affordable (not beautiful) ebike that is really fun than check this out. I researched for months and when Lectric came out with a step thru version I pulled the trigger. I think I'll eventually buy another one so I can keep up with my wife.
It did/does take about a month for your bike to arrive after ordering.
Can't seem to post a pic right now for some reason.

edit; I guess the pic posted even though it errored out. Weird.

I've been eyeing these for quite some time. We've had e-bikes for 4 years, although ours are also foldable, they're just 250w, not step thru & not the fat tire that the Lectric ones are. These really interest me.

My wife is vertically challenged (5'2") and I thought I was going to have to change out the handle bars to make her happy. She took her maiden voyage today and wants it just like it is. I couldn't keep up with her while on my mountain bike and she was only on PAS mode 2. We are very happy with purchase.

We purchased ours in September, a step through model for my wife that we received in mid-October and a regular Lectric XP for me that we got last week. Unfortunately, we haven't used them on an RV trip but have played around with them locally. We've been really impress so far with the only exception being that my wife wasn't really pleased with her seat so we replaced it with a Bikeroo model that offered additional padding. I'm still entertaining the idea of installing a suspension seat post for her as well.

I like it. I was not in the market for one but now you got me thinking. I'm hauling 2 mountain bikes now on the back of my toad. Looks like this one will fold up nice and fit in the back of the Honda Crv.

That's where we keep out current EG e-bikes. Being able to keep them in our CRV, it keeps them clean & secure. Our 2 easily fit in the back with room to spare.

Hereís a picture of my Lectric ready to travel. We just stick it in the door of our fifth wheel right before we leave and it rides fine there. Iíve been extremely happy with mine.
