I have had a Prodeco e-bike for with dubious results.

Tho the bike at 350watts is well powered for an assisted commute and the 36v system at 9Ah worked well for a 8mile one way commute with a charge (appx 2hrs or half power) during the workday.

However the folding action on my Storm was useless weight. The handlebars as a split-nut thus are not an easy rotation and the unconventional frame design is not car or storage rack applicble.

But the worst was the (now abandoned technology and design) problematic battery placement and mount. The first mount was good but the battery not up to Chicago weather. The second was such a light weight design that the holdown clips broke immediately. The revised clip design actually didnot fit the mounting rack. ]

I must admit at the $1200 price point I found that model at was a fiscal dream it meant the package a design comprimise bordering a nightmare.

The minor manipulations and added anchors for the battery have at present now offered what seems to be a workable situation and I hope the life cycle of the battery and frame can live up to the simple street and groomed trail use I hope to put this bike to will make the purchase worthwhile in the longrun.

I do worry about the supply for replacement parts and battery especially but as these things come up I shall deal with them.
