    If you weigh more than 70kg you won't get far on this thing

    • +11

      That rules around 80% of us :D

      • +22

        That rules out 100% of me

        • +18

          This rules out 30% of me.

        • +6

          Just buy two bikes…one cheek on each

      • +38

        I don't think all men can fit on the seat, it's made for one

        • Lol @ someone negging your comment. Some people have no sense of humour haha

        • +2

          Amen

    • +5

      This looks like it's made exclusively for Easi delivery drivers.

      • +1

        yup, they are the only people I've seen riding these bikes

    • That depends - low assist mode and a bit more input from you will increase your range drastically

  • -1

    What a funny-looking bike. After watching a video of someone riding this, that person looks really silly. Very practical though I got to admit, especially for the prize and size.

  • Range?

      • +2

        That's quite low compared to most other e-bikes…

        Hmm, seems quite obvious why the price is cheap now

        • It's pretty old I think. Model wise.

        • +1

          It's a thin design. Go for a big battery one if you want range and power.

      • Average commute is 15km. Sweet.

        • +1

          battery power in the morning & pedal power in the afternoon

  • Yes great price, actually been this price for a few weeks. I’ve been trying to sell my old one to replace with new as no idea where to get serviced.

  • +3

    They see me rollin'. They hatin'…

    With svelte design lines like that, this thing is a bona fide chick magnet…

  • +2

    Max load capacity is 100kg :(

  • I read reviews saying that the settings are in Chinese only, is this true?

    • -1

      Yes true

      • Thanks. That’s a big no from me then :(

        • +3

          you don't ever really use them. hold power button to turn on/off. press up/down to change power assist. can connect to your phone, but duno why youd want that

        • +1

          Fwiw i can help if you send me screenshots

    • Chinese is quicker to read, so you have more time to watch the road ;)

    • +3

      Not true - I have this (ordered from Kogan) and it is the 'international' version.

  • 190kg here

    • +2

      Maybe tricycle with 20 kg boot space?

    • +4

      Just get two and join em, put one leg on each bike lol

    • Congrats, im also struggling due to the recent chocolate deals

    • +2

      Mate, you need to buy two of this.

      • Nice ID

  • At the present time, "First" doesn't pay for the $72 postage to W.A. on this.

    • First gets you a$50 discount instead

    Qicycle

    Cheesickle?

  • +1

    5800mAh battery pack? Those freebee power-banks have more. This sounds unreasonably low…No way this is going 17km’s unless it’s mostly pedal power lol

    • +1

      42V at 5800mAh, still relatively low. Unless you're under 70kgs I highly wouldn't recommend this.

  • How easy is it to fold? And what are peoples thoughts on this vs e scooter?

    • At least in NSW, this ebike is road legal. An e scooter is never road or sidewalk legal.

      • Anyone know if this is legal in Vic?

        • It would be road legal across Australia.

          I meant to say, in NSW, e scooters are illegal.

  • Looks like it might be made to a spec that is NSW legal, but I wouldn't swear on it and I'm certainly not a lawyer..

    • The 250W limit is something that is also used in Europe, so that’s why the market has a lot of 250W ebikes. There’s higher wattage ones but they’re generally for other purposes including off road mountain biking, etc.

    I’ve had this bike for about a year. Some thoughts (I am 95kg and 6ft):

    Doesn’t look as small as you think once the seat is up, certainly don’t get weird “why’s he on a kid’s bike” looks.

    Battery life / range is adequate but not the longest range as noted.
    An extra battery weighs about 3 kg and you can buy on AliExpress for $250-odd. Basically like a big security torch shape which could fit in a (larger) backpack.

    Folding is relatively easy to fit in a car boot or backseat, but it’s still pretty heavy to lug around, on a train for example.

    Perfectly fine on level ground and mild gradients but can struggle on anything steep.

    You can buy a throttle kit. Got it from a guy from Korea who did a YouTube video (searching Qicycle throttle) ~ $80.

    • Throttle would make it illegal in my state, if you crash this can affect your payout

    • Was it easy to install throttle?

      • +1

        Easy, just attaching a cable extension and mounting the throttle on the handlebar (about 10 min all up)

        The YouTube video shows the whole setup process

    I have brought two such cheap folding bikes, I would not recommend it.

    • +1

      Did you buy this exact model or some other bikes?

    • You had two xiaomi qicycles? What happened to them?

  • Do I remember well Mr Bean on one of these?

  • is it safe to assume this Qi-cycle has a Qi phone charger?

  • How is the warranty on this ? Is this direct import where we have to contact overseas manufacture ?

  • I have two of these bikes and they are good.

    Probably one of the lightest e-bikes available which is great if you are in an apartment like myself.

    Also I have a spare unused throttle that plugs in if anyone is interested.

    • is the throttle still available?

      how can i contact you?

      • Yes it's still available,
        Go to:
        "My account" and then "Messages", and enable accept messages.
        Afterwards I can send you a DM.
        Cheers

          thanks, done. pls send me a msg

  • I bought this bike from Kogan too.

    Good bike to ride. Works well for me.

    Only thing is that I can't make the Bluetooth connection to my phone.

    Does anyone know this version on Kogan has Bluetooth module built-in?

    • No Bluetooth for the Kogan version as there is no Bluetooth module on our ones :(

      Additionally these ones are set to 25km/h but the overseas Bluetooth models are 20km/h and can be increased to 25km/h through the Bluetooth app.

      I have seen someone online, 3d print a cover, wire up a usb connection and hack the firmware to increase top speed to 29-30km/h

      • there is a clamp that can be used.

        but i dont know.where to buy one.

        http://faq.qicyc.com/ef1/ef_list2_1.html

        it is in chinese and it is the workshop instruction to update the firmware using the clamp connector.

        • I have not been able to find one either but yeah this is what I meant about 3d printing the cover(clamp) then manually stripping and wiring a usb cable.

          With this, you can hack the firmware and unlock the higher top speed 29-30km/h but would still not have access to the app or its Bluetooth features.

          • +1

            @Master P: I just managed to find the clamp from China.

            It is sold from a workshop that services this type of bikes.

            Placed the order today.

            I will let you know how it goes when I get it.
