Advice for Fixing an Electric Bike (Giant La Free Sport)
I'm new here, but I hope you don't mind if I put an over-my-head question to you all. I am a student that will be moving to a new city soon, and I'd like to buy an inexpensive e-bike to let me get around without a car. I've found a Giant La Free on Craigslist for just $250, but with a problem. Apparently it runs, but the LEDs blink and beep as if indicating a malfunction. Does anyone know how this problem might be resolved? Is it possible to purchase affordable spare parts for one of these, and if so would they be difficult to install?
On the other hand, do I need the LED display? If it's just a battery indicator, could I ride the bike without knowing how much charge I had, but instead with faith in the shortness of my 8-mile commute? I ask this as someone with zero e-bike experience, so feel free to laugh at my ignorance
Thanks for your help and advice!
