For Amazon's price and fast delivery the Ancheer is a great deal for an entry level good E Bike. Very well packaged in China. A quality made E Bike for only $650. Assembled easily in my living room. Came with all the tools needed! Seemed well engineered. Just have to add Slime the tires. I like the non knobby commuter tires it has. Has a big 500W motor and big 36V/12.2 Battery. Seat is really not that bad but I am retired and used to riding on Wright leather seats. The seat post it came with is nice and long. I am near 300lbs and 6'2" [all legs) so a lot of bikes out there will not carry me. Even some expensive E Bikes. Happy with it. I have many cars and in the North so I do not ride bikes all year long. For fun only.

We don't have many reviews of Ancheer at BF, but AIR, they receive an average of 4+ stars (of 5) on Amazon. Please update us occasionally of how it's performing.

I've an Ancheer like yours but with the 250w motor and 8 ah battery. It has treated me well until recently when I attempted one too many mountain grades with too much pedal assist, and probably fried the motor. So that's the only thing I would warn you about. Otherwise, a good bike at a good price.

If you know which motor you have, you might be able to purchase one and "trade" the motor cores.

Pop. I could buy a motor from Ancheer for $220, but they don't make it easy to swap it out. There's no 9 pin quick disconnect,but a large connector block at the controller which is too large for a socket (splined to remove the freewheel) to slip over.

If it's the three bullets and the 2x3 white connector. the pins on the latter come out if you squeeze the retaining barb with a needle nose. Then you can slip it thru your axle.

But wait til you get your ebike testor and verify the controller still works.

Weird. I think the mods combined two threads
