EFB $80 on Amazon

Discovered an $80 48V Electric Fat Bike on Amazon. It's the usual 7-speed hardtail and must be a pricing mistake. I'll let you know what actually transpires.

I saw one for $93.65 , too good to be true.

The one I "bought" can carry 260 kg; that's almost 600 pounds. It's too good to be true,but I purchased just to see what Amazon does.

I saw other listings from the seller and the prices are weired, they range from $90 ~ $93. the seller is out of states. shipping alone from country to another country will cost a lot for a heavy item.

I'll be a guinea pig, and hope the "investment" wasn't wasted.

Shipped (supposedly) per Amazon and tracking number provided. It will be really interesting to see what, if anything, is in the package (if it arrives). Stay tuned! If it's a bike, I'm in trouble since it will curtail my "thinning of the herd".

Looks like the individual following the thread most closely is on my ignore list. I guess there's no accounting for followers.

Just exactly how this thread helps the folks who are interested in ebikes in general if you can't even provide a source?
You're free to ignore me all you want, but don't just post a thread and not even bother to help others.

Ignore list or not I think their point was valid as no link was posted so nobody could see it and they would have to do some un-needed digging to find it. Sometimes people post some ridiculous things but asking for a link to the product is not so crazy. I would be curious to see it as well

I didn't see the initial request. Originally I didn't post anything since it seemed "scammy" and if anyone was interested, I thought it would be easy to locate. One thread had individuals purchasing three of them.

Edit: Looks like it's still available for < $100; put "26" Fat Electric Bike for Adults 48V 1500W 5 Speed" in the Amazon browser.

I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT which is why there was no link before.

But it is from Generic brand. Whenever I hear generic I think the top end of quality...LOL

I mean it has a front, back and finger dial that is what I have always wanted in a bike.

I have a tracking number from some China post, but it hasn't been updated in a week or so. Please tell us what's in the "box". Those bikes (or something that looks identical) are selling for $1K+ elsewhere on Amazon.

I learned my lesson a while ago.
I'm betting here's what happens - your package will eventually arrive. It will be much smaller than what you expected a bike to be shipped in, because it won't be a bike. It will be some junk trinket worth about $3. You'll file a complaint with Amazon for a return/refund. Amazon will get the package back, and of course, it won't be what you had ordered, so your refund will be denied. You'll complain to the company that shipped it, but they will show that your package was delivered. You got scammed.
Luckily, I only lost about $30.

I had a similar situation once, recounted in this forum, and received a full refund as I expect to this time. Either Amazon or my CC company will reimburse me one way or the other. Also, there's the possibility that Amazon will be participating in mail fraud since they had the offer on their site for days after I warned them this was a probable "misprint".
