Hi from a E-bike (non-functional, used Ezee bike) owner,
I love urban bicycling ( 3-speed bicycle only) but I'm getting a little too old for lengthy bike rides.
We're about 6 miles (of level terrain and pleasant and quiet neighborhoods) from downtown Oklahoma City. I try to do a round trip every day but sometimes the strong wind takes the fun and joy out of it. I have several designated rest stops where I can pause, rest, and catch my breath.
So I need to use some supplementary source of power to continue riding OR cut back on the length of my trips. As it is now, I really do work up a sweat and usually return home almost exhausted (But feeling great overall).
I bought a used Ezee E-bike for $150.00 in non-running condition. The seller told me it needed a new battery. That sounded do'able so I bit. Unfortunately, a $130.00 replacement battery was NOT the solution.
So here I am looking towards the Forums for technical assistance that is simply not otherwise available locally. I really want to get this rig out on the road.
No E-bike dealers or repair available here in town. (wouldn't that be a great business opportunity to get into before the fad (!!) really takes ahold?)
