if you can get one for next to free.. maybe.

otherwise.. stay away imo... the " 86 Mile per charge " is total BS in real life, even is " some " will argue it's real ( like .. the people selling it ) .. I put them in the same boat as Prodeco .... not to be confused with " Pedego " .. the pedego is a better bike.

i'm starting to agree with you about Prodeco but will save that for another time, or @ least until my warranty issues are resolved.
Thanks for the heads up

Also, they falsely advertise them. The Super 50 is advertised to be 33 pounds plus the battery (13 pounds). It is more like 46 pounds plus the battery. Once you get it you are stuck with it. You always have to deal with the owner, Alan. So if he doesn't like you watch out. Buy from a reputable company. Do your homework and check out them all. I brought mine to EMS for adjustments and he said it was a junky bike. I then spotted the frame at Dick's Sporting Goods. My brakes squeal since day one. I have only had mine for 2 months and the battery is good as is the motor. I hope it stays that way.

this is an old thread, I sold the Prodeco early last summer, I sprung for a MiPower, been happy with this purchase.
Good luck with your busetti
