Anyone got any experience of these?
I am looking at something for a commute, not an MTB or anything fancy. I was looking at the FIIDO D2S
Just cautious about buying second hand.
Any help appreciated.

My mate has an Analog Motion which he loves.
I've had a go on it and seems like a great piece of kit.
Battery died after a few months and they replaced it within days so aftercare seems decent.

Yeah I still don’t get these things for anyone under 60 odd. A mate who runs a bike shop said he hadn’t sold a single non-electric bike during the whole of 2019! Just ride a normal bike and build up fitness.

TBF they also work for women. Someone in my bike club goes for long / fast rides with his wife, the electric motor means that he doesn't have to wait for her
But otherwise… strong nan kid vibes

I run and go to the gym so I don’t need it for fitness, just to fuckabout on

I’d go with a normal bike mate. Lighter, more eco friendly, no charging etc….

how long is your commute?
23 Apr 2020 16:32
Commute is a couple of miles.

Couple of miles? Just buy a Porsche.

ebikes are fun as hell. I always joked about them, till i had a longer ride on one myself.
Bought a tern hsd last year, can highly recommend it because you can share it with the whole family and it can carry alot of stuff. At least in germany you can get alot of money back from your city, i guess there are similar programs in the uk?
I think you should go with a Bosch motor, everything else seems to be not worth it in the longterm. Beside that, go to a store and test it yourself. Too many options out there.

To be fair, I fancy just having one for a fuckabout, nipping to the shops etc. Daughter would probably use it too
