    Fiido D4S or Estarli E20

    Haven't even heard of the second one, but the Fiddo is well-reviewed, and was on my 2-bike shortlist with an ADO A20, and I went with the ADO, and well-chuffed with the purchase,

    Newbie looking for recommendations

    I'm a 150kg 51yo with zero fitness and arthritis in left knee. There are quite a few bikes that will serve you. I was looking at a folding e-bike, to allow me to use trains also easily, and came up with a list of ADO A20, Samebike 20LVXD30, Fiido D4S, Ancheer Folding electric,Argos E-Plus...

    Review ADO A20 review for 150kg fat b'stards.

    Hi! After a few false starts (shock supplied new was rusted as hell), finally got out on the ADO A20 for a proper run. I'm 150kg, so 30kg past the weight limit for the bike. I expected immediate snakebite punctures or instantly collapsing pedals to be the main issue, but so far, it's...

    Help! Metal flat platform non-folding pedals foe ADO A20?

    ADO A20 seems to come with non-metal folding pedals, couple reviewers showed that they had a fair bit of play in them. I'm heavy enough to have my own satellites, so would like to swap right away once bike arrives for a non-folding metal pair. Haven't been into bikes for years, I'm gathering...

    Help! Fiido D4S for heavy rider (145kg), and derestricting it.

    Yeah, can't see stock at mo, and looking to buy next week. Also, the position of the shifters vs the elec controls, is just bizarre, no way I can reach shifters without reaching over, and as a v.heavy bloke with an ass that has it's own gravitational field, I use shifters often.

    Help! Fiido D4S for heavy rider (145kg), and derestricting it.

    Looking into it now, cheers. :) EDIT: Still scared of using a 350W ebike on UK roads, although I gather most cops don't really care as long as you're not acting the loon.... That looks identical to the Samebike 20LVXD30?

    Help! Fiido D4S for heavy rider (145kg), and derestricting it.

    looks great, but 500W, and too rich for my blood, just yet.

    Help! Fiido D4S for heavy rider (145kg), and derestricting it.

    Gotcha, I thought derestricting gave more power/torque too. Today I learned.

    Help! Fiido D4S for heavy rider (145kg), and derestricting it.

    That looks very like the 36V/250W Ancheer I was also looking at, which had a 150kg limit also. The more I hear about lack of police involvement, the more I wonder if I should just ignore the law, and go for the likes of this one instead.... Tank you for this option! EDIT: Seems sold out...

    Ex-cyclist with bum big enough to have it's own postcode

    51yo Belfast-based heavy rider here, since I was last on bike, weight went up to 164kg, and down to 145kg and dropping. Also since I last biked, now have diabetes and arthritis, mostly in one knee. Getting old and sick and lazy sucks, but every day above ground is a good day. :) On lookout...

    Help! Fiido D4S for heavy rider (145kg), and derestricting it.

    Aiming to get a Fiido D4S @ 145kg... won't be taking it off-road, off kerbs, over any rough terrain, and I'll obviously pump tyres up hard and swap tyres for Marathons. Hills is the main area I'll need electric power, I'm aware I'll still have to do a fair bit of effort (but less than a normal...

    Woosh Woosh Big Bear LS - too much assistance!

    the bike seems not to be available, I'm 326 lbs, and it sounds like just the bike for me starting out. Any similarly powerful bikes which pull above their weight?
