This is definitely a good deal for an EZIP. But you get what you pay for! If you're looking for an entry level electric bike and don't expect it to last too long - an EZIP will be OK. But Currie's other brand of bikes (IZIP) are much higher quality and will last longer than an EZIP. You'll pay around $799 for an entry level IZIP, but it includes higher quality components and an ALL ALUMINUM FRAME. The EZIP uses a steel frame, which is definitely strong, but very heavy! The EZIP will weigh over 10 lbs more than the IZIP equivalent.
10 lbs is a lot of weight in "bike terms". Not only will it be harder to lift and move this bike around, it will be harder to pedal and the added weight will put additional stress on the motor and batteries. This makes the range of the EZIP slightly less than an IZIP, and you can expect less life out of an EZIP.
