“Quality and Function. Pro Rider Flow e bike”

Written on: 30/10/2018 by diStevens203 (1 review written)

I wanted a bigger cycle with a decent range and build quality, but my wife decided to join in. Knowing that the likelihood of her being able to do so was poor, I elected to buy one that, at a pinch, I could utilise if and when she decided that it was not for her. After shopping about, a came across this bike that was being sold new at less than half price because of a small scratch.

A few small problems ensued. A flat tyre that was sorted at the cost of the dealer, and I replaced the front brake cable because the drum fitting at the lever was too small and twisted. That done, the bike feels good. I am 14 stone plus and the bike propels me about at the requisite 15 mph. The gearing is quite low so if you want to reach 20 mph you have pedal like crazy but at 15mph it does not take long to get somewhere. 20 to 25 miles range per charge on maximum assist.

It does suffer a bit on very steep hills and could do with a higher gear to go a bit faster downhill but all in all is great fun and a serious mode of transport. The build quality is very good and the dealer back up is well worth a mention. My advice is skip the second hand ones and Chinese imports on e bay and pay just a bit extra from a decent dealer. The value for money is obviously there and you don't have to worry about the battery packing up after a week. Spare batteries are available fairly reasonably by the way. Only gripe is that everything is quick release which makes theft of components a risk unless you carry shed loads of locks and cables.
