A Electric Powered Folding Bicycle Nightmare: Raw Motor Electric Folding Bike Review

The folding bicycle from hell!

This Los Angeles based Craigslist Ad caught my attention:

Beware of the seller everyday motors as I had so many technical problems with them I had to get a replacement and the cheated me and made the replacement of a weaker motor then told me where to go when I complained. So I was forced to take them to court. The seller swore at me and even stated in an email " I was talking all sorts of **** to you and you did nothing about it. Pulled the camera out because you knew I was about to **** you up.". I won and yet they have still to settle. Very dishonest.

If you search Raw electric bike on youtube you'll see an online review I did. (posting links here can flag problems)

I watched the video on Youtube:

Every time I purchased any bike (especially the folding ones due to their more demanding need to be perfectly aligned), I go through a quiet panic attack of wondering if it will give me problems. I see now that I never gone though hell like this man has gone through. While some of the bikes did gave me trouble initially, I was able to solve them and keep the bikes for a very long time.

Thanks so much for this posting as I'm the guy in this video. The company I bought them from represent themselves as the importer and wholesaler around the country so any retailer carrying the bike will be sourcing it from them I gather

Here's the video with the correct soundtrack (I was playing with audio swap on youtube and didn't realise it couldn't be reversed)
