    I still don't get this.Whatever made me think that a bicycle was something you pedalled for exercise? ha ha

      Cheap way to commute, can be a good way for people with knee injuries to ride. There's a market out there for everything

        Also get to work without needing a shower on arrival

          Exactly my reasons for getting my eBike. Still more exercise than taking the train, no shower/ride in work clothes and better use of money than train tickets.

          Weekends I ride road/MTB for the exercise.

      Yeh, but… Whatever helps people get out there, it's all good IMO…

      An e-bike still takes effort and it's still a great way for people to get some exercise … As fitness increases people are likely to pedal more and be less reliant on the motor, or shift to a non-e-bike if they stick with it…

      •  

        Depends. If it's pedal assist then yes there is effort. If it's throttle controlled only then no, no pedaling required.

      I have an e-bike. When I ride for exercise/leisure 60% of the time i turn off electric assistance. When I ride to work I use the 2nd highest or 3rd highest power setting because i don't want to arrive at work sweaty (I can't be bothered wearing lycra and having a shower at work).

      You still pedal with electric bikes.

  •  

    Thanks OP. Seems a decent price for 36v electric bike with 13Ah battery.

    Has it got throttle assist for off-road usage at home?

    Any online reviews?

      Hi UncleRico,

      The bike has a throttle for-off road use.

      The product doesn't have online review but I have 2 costumers that have rode the bike for over 10,000km and they are happy with the product.

      Please let me know if you need any information.

      Best regards,
      Move Bikes Team

        Thanks Rep - appreciate the rapid response.

        Since I'm browsing in this space, I've noticed you cropping up every few weeks with a deal for different models. Anything planned for the Urban? As suggested by @shaybisc below, a trail bike may not have the board appeal of a commuter like the Urban (albeit that may also be why you don't feel the need to discount it further!), which may attract more traction in the current lockdown market…

        Any online reviews for any of the other models? Since many would be buying sight unseen, any online reviews could hold a lot of sway with closing deals (as Leitner seem to have discovered).

        Thanks for the deals - they're certainly at the more affordable end of the ebike spectrum.

        When you say it has a throttle, is pedaling still required?

        • +1 vote

          Typically, no.

          Under road rules, bikes can have throttle assist up to 6kph to get you started from a standing start. For off-road usage, many e-bikes have an ability to unlock this so that you can use throttle all the way up to max speed.

          Similarly, the ability to delimit the maxspeed from 25kph (as allowed onroad in most states) to 35kph will be of appeal to anyone looking to er… take the bike offroad. Presumably…

  •  

    I don't quite get it. If it's a getting to work bike why the fat tyres and suspension fork? And if it's a trail bike why the battery? Unless you ride to work on a dirt trail.

      For comfort. Especially when you're not keen on riding public roads and stick to bike paths, you're quite frequently slowing down and riding down and up the kerb ramps as you cross streets.

    •  

      I've seen fatter

    •  

      Big tyres safer, see so many people crash inn the wet on those skinny tyre road bikes as soon as there's a shower

      Suspension allows tyres to be more in contact with road. So safer

      • -1 vote

        In this case, these tyres are made for trails, their slight knobliness makes them great for traction on dirt tracks but are a lot worse than the skinny road tyres you speak off in the wet. So they are definitely nowhere near as safe as a road bike tyre. You can get thicker tyres for the road, just need to look for the more street friendly tyres rather than the trail variety

        •  

          You can change the tyres for road tyres . If you get skinny wheels you are stuck without changing wheels which is very expensive

      Get over it.

      In Perth at least there's no way its true. Commute routes, CBD excepted, are bare enough of foot traffic that all cyclists should be on them. That's where I'll be when I'm fitter. No way I'm going on a road and ending up a statistic when there's a perfectly good footpath not even being used.

        Hobart seems to be much the same, "fairly" low density of walkers and riders, I'm sure summer weekends would be a bit busier though..

        I bought a second hand MTB the other week (which I'll add a mid-drive to when it arrives)… I've only done a couple of 30km rides on it along the 2 main cycle paths down here, from what I've seen all cyclists & e-bikers seem to be doing the right thing, some walkers are an issue though, groups walking 4 abreast and being ignorant to the ding of a bell, they like to take up the full width of the path… Peak commuting times may be different, dunno…

        •  

          What mid drive model are you putting in? Much effort? Neighbours moved out and gave me their bikes, plus I've got a few Macbook batteries sitting around doing nothing and could put together a 48v setup. The Bafang gear looks the best, but no idea about controller/ computer thingies, throttles etc.

          Bafang crank drive - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33004620247 ?

          *Edit - just saw you pretty much listed these below.

          Are they reasonably solid? We have a marked mountain bike park track out the back. I'm too old to hit the massive ramps, but there are a couple of ledge drops maybe 2 - 3ft max. Wouldn't want a pedal braking off. Watching the locals power up the path back to the top with their e-mountain bikes..fair to say I'm a little bit jealous. No idea what those rigs cost, but they look $$$

            @tunzafun001: Your link didn't work sorry….

            I went for this one:
            https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32925991677.html
            I used a code and paid about $1260aud for the kit with 48V 17.5Ah battery and 860C display… The price varies day to day from about $1260 to $1300…

            The battery arrived and all seems good, the motor kit should arrive on Monday (it was delayed a couple of days because they were out of stock of the 860C displays

            The battery contains 65x Samsung 35E 18650 cells… Personally I wouldn't screw around with used cells unless I could get like 80 of the same brand similar age ones that I could test and weed out the crap and be left with 65 very similar cells… 18650's can be little hand-grenades and with so many mashed together in series and parallel I dont think it's worth cheaping out and taking risks with them…

            The seller I used seems to have a good reputation around the place, good feedback, and they ship from Aus so no GST and If I need to return it I wont have to send it back to china, it will be back to an Aussie address I believe….

            I also considered this company but their replies were a bit shady when I asked about what cells they use in their battery:
            https://www.eunorau-australia.com/collections/bbs-ena-series...
            Use code "BAFANG" for 10% off… They also have an Aliexpress store… In general I got the impression they try to cheap out where ever possible so I figured it was safer to pay a little extra and go with the other company…

            @tunzafun001: In reply to your edit… the Bafang 750w and 1000w both seem to have issues with dropping down if you hammer them offroad… You can buy stabilizer arms which help, like:
            https://rev-electricbikekits.com.au/product/bafang-stabilise...
            https://rev-electricbikekits.com.au/product/bafang-stabilise...
            The popular American companies sell them also, Luna & such…

            Some people just use a big hose clamp around the motor looped through another one around the frame, that seems to go ok… There's a guy in this thread that uses this method:
            https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/636588

            I'm planning to try this approach:
            https://electricbike.com/forum/forum/kits/bafang-mid-drives/...
            With one of these:
            https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/323853244467
            I'll cut one side of the U-shaped end off and bend the other side to suit the angle…

            Those real nice full suspension factory made e-bikes go for around $10k, second hand $5k+, nice bikes but at that cost I'd rather buy another motorbike, lol… Also, they all use proprietary batteries and controllers so if you have any issues you have to pay their inflated spare-parts prices, that really turned me off…

            If my current build all works out I might look at building a full suspension bike, it will still end up being significant amounts of money though…

        Nutjobs on e-bikes (a minority of e-bike riders) are a menace. Furthermore, there's often a correlation between riding an e-bike and having poor cycling skills, which can also be dangerous for others. Telling people to "get over it" kinda sucks.

          Lance Armstrongs on race bikes are a much bigger menace on shared paths.

    Wheel hub motor. At least it's on the rear wheel, but no thanks.

      For this price I don't think you'd find a mid-drive motor.

      •  

        This is a $200 bike with a replacement rear wheel and battery kit.

        •  

          Pretty much. But a hub kit also retails around that price, so the added value is the install and the seller being able to source the bike for cheap.

      • +1 vote

        Yep, mid-drive seems to start at around $2.5-$3k… I bought a second hand bike off Gumtree for $400 (a $1000 Scotts MTB, "ok" quality) and got a 750w mid-drive kit from Aliexpress for $1260, I figure at the end of the day it will end up costing me close to $2k…
        https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32925991677.html
        Half the reason I've gone the DIY route is because I want a new project and I like tinkering with shit… For a non-mechanically/electrically minded person I'd probably recommend something prebuilt…

        These hub drive bikes may be nothing flash but for the low end of the market the ones in this deal (edit: and the one mentioned below by TheWizardOfTheOZ) look a lot better than the Anaconda cheapies and the likes, the Anaconda ones seem to be terrible:

    If you pedal like mad, can you get these above 25km/hr?

    •  

      Yep, absolutely.

      And you can do it with or without pedal assist as well, if you use the delimiter as mentioned.

      "Speed: Max. Speed Up to 25 Km/h (Australia Legal Speed); Can unlock speed limit to 35Km/ h, for OFF-ROAD use only (conditions apply)."

  •  

    I swear to God I have electric bikes (usually the fat wheel versions) speed past me on a pedestrian walkway/cycleway (go figure) doing at least 30/40km/h…..no way they could stop effectively in a hurry…..complete with non-helmeted riders and no bell on the bike.

    •  

      Probably guys that have lost their car license, lol, there will always be people breaking the law…

    •  

      I haven't seen too many e-bikes, but I'd estimate that about 80% of them were going over 25kph (closer to 40) without pedalling.

      •  

        25km/h is actually pretty damn fast on a walkway.

        •  

          Depends on the foot traffic on that shared path.

          When I'm riding I like to ring my bell and pass so pedestrians are not shocked/surprised when i overtake (when they give me space they're showing that they're aware that I'm approaching from behind).

          However sometimes pedestrians are wearing headphones or noise-cancelling earphones, in which case I'm forced to lower my speed below 25km/h and overtake at probably 15km/h to 20km/h.

          But apart from that 25km/h is quite slow, and I think that Australia should adopt a 32km/h electric cut-off limit instead like NZ.

    run2dmax..on the money mate.Try living in a tourist town where as a walker you experience the gamut of everything…from people who have clearly have either never ridden a bike or haven't since they were a child,to millennial lunatics who treat the pedestrian walkways as their private ebike drag strips.Oh yeah…and most without mandatory helmets and ignoring the 25km/hr speed limit.
