Just got my new Mongoose Comfort Electric CB24V450 from Wal-Mart via Internet order. Box looked OK, but bike had a couple of issues: Front wheel is warped; minor scratches on decals; AND would not run. Found the front brake interlock cable pulled out of handle breaking the solder connections. I took the handle apart, removed the tiny push button switch, re-soldered the two leads and re-glued into position. (This is a design defect). Use several wire ties to hold cable in place. I figured it would be best to fix it rather than hassle with Wal-Mart or wait for a part. Battery is still charging so I am waiting for a test ride. Just wondering why this is call a "comfort" bike, sure not because of the seat.
My wife plans to use it to commute to work about 3 miles away. She has to make this trip twice each weekday and hoping it can be done on one charge. What do you guys think, can she do it?
Just wondering about what kind of lights and speedometer/trip computer to use. Tom
