Good news on Currie Customer Support
Well, just as promised I got my free replacements from Currie for the parts that were heat damaged because the connections to the battery loosened up and made BIG resistance.
I'm not sure the wait time. I had already done a work around repair, and they told me they were holding up parts to check quality.
My odometer says 453 miles in the month since I got the bike. Just that one problem. I think it was a good $380 buy.
I am adding a three ring crank, front derailleur, and bar end shifter to make it a 21 speed. We got HILLS here. I can't pedal fast enough to add to, or maintain the 25+ mph downhill to keep momentum for the following uphill. And I need a granny gear to grind up some STEEP grades. Even with motor assist, I feel the effect of those 32 lbs of batteries.
