" ...  I charged up the battery and the first place I rode was to Performance Bicycle for a tune up. ... I have not measured how long the battery lasts while pedaling the entire time, but I would expect 25-30 miles. ... The battery still worked, but once the charge was gone, it was no more. ... I contacted Ancheer customer service and they shipped me a replacement battery at no charge.  ...  "

" ...  The 21 speed shifters are good, and the dual disk brakes are nice as well, although they squeak Everytime I use them. ... The motor is ok. For the price, I can't complain, but 15mph top speed starts feeling slow once you get use to it.  ...  "
