After a lot of research with a more budget price range in mind, I went looking for an ebike, my criteria was as follows: Must be a hybrid or MTB Must have a battery capable of 30 miles on one charge Must be at a max £1200 Must have half decent components suitable mainly for road use And settled with the Rio MTB. Ease of assembly: Very easy. The bike comes in two boxes for added protection. All you need to do is put the front wheel on, pedals, handlebar, mudguards and lights. Then tweak as necessary. I took my time as it's been a while since i've owned a bike but the manual explains it well. Worth double checking all nuts and bolts and follow the separate maintenance manual. Build quality: Seems sturdy enough. Again this is initial impressions. Frame seems well built, gears work smoothly, front suspension is great with preload and lockout. I tend to not have it locked out as I use farm tracks and bumpy roads a lot of the time which it helps a lot with. Hydraulic brakes are bedding in nicely and stop the bike with ease, very easy to lock the back wheel. The front brake makes a high pitched high speed clickclickclick noise when engaged however, not sure why as it runs true, might be something to do with the motor cut off. Paint quality could be better, it chips easily. No creaks or weird noises. Features: Easy to see backlit LCD display. Shows speed, two odometers, average speed, journey time. Power ranges from 0-5, I like being able to have 0 assistance but still have the display running. Also shows how much power is going to the motor. I believe there are settings to increase the motor cut off speed but will void your warranty, so maybe do that after a year or leave it alone. Battery will suffer anyway. Hydraulic disc brakes front and rear. Bell Lights front and back, AA batteries, cheap but does the job. Mudguards, the back one is nice but front is more for show than anything. USB charging from the battery, lockable battery with 2 keys Throttle Push assist Performance/battery life: From powers 1-5, 1 hardly helps at all, useful if you're already really fit but then why buy an ebike. I tend to be using powers 2-3 for 90% of my rides. I'm 5ft 11 and 164lb. Worth mentioning I have a rack and heavy lock on the bike adding about 4kg. I use powers 4-5 only on steep hills and it does fine. It will get me up a steep hill on throttle alone, but it will drop down to 12 or so MPH, will suck the life out of the battery so I always pedal. Yet to be out of breath from a hill. Battery life, early days but still showing 2 bars left and 29 miles covered. So the bike meets my needs of 30 miles on one charge. Something I was concerned about. Downsides: Paint quality Due to frame design, not much space to add things like bottle holders or a lock mount. Even a frame back isn't really possible because the cross bar is flat and not a tube so most conventional ones will slide all over the place. Customer service: Great. My bike came damaged, the wheel had rubbed against the battery casing scraping some paint off. Woosh arranged delivery and collection of a new battery and also sent some stickers to cover one scratch on the frame. They have since added more padding to prevent this from happening to someone else. Quick to answer emails too. The bike was build well with only a minor tweak needed on the gear tension. Modifications: Gel seat cover Slime in tyres Mobile phone holder Rack Bottle and holder (not sure where to put it yet) Ulock and mount Quick video demonstrating the bike, towards the end I use the throttle only. The clacking noise you can hear is not the bikes fault, the cheap rack I bought has a vibrating plate on it, need to stick it down somehow. The motor just has a quiet whine really. Overall very pleased, will update at 50 miles, 100 miles and so on.
