My new e-bike
I picked up this IZIP Mountain Trailz AL
two days ago and so far I have mostly positive thoughts.
I have ridden it for about 18 miles so far. The first day I rode it (first time riding a bike in a few years) I took the route I plan on taking to get to my classes. It is about 12 miles round trip.
I pedaled most of the way, but having not ridden in a while, my legs tired pretty quickly. I ended up making it 11 miles before the battery gave out on me. It claims with normal pedaling it should get about 25 miles, but it is weight contingent. I am a Clydesdale but I was surprised it would have that much affect on the mileage.
The other issue it the area I am riding has some big hills so I imagine that zapped some of the power too. I think I'll either end up getting the optional second power pack, or take the battery to class and plug it and recharge while I am school.
Other than the power issue I like the bike. Hopefully I will get into better shape and lose some weight so the power will be less of an Issue.
Here are some more photos:
It has another rack ont he other side for the optional 2nd battery pack.
