NQi Series Smart Electric Scooter Community GOVA Series NQi GT Introduction
There are only 2 pins on the charging cable, not 5 as the original has. I hope it will not damage the battery during the charging.
I've got over 130 miles on this bike and have a LOT to say about it. This is a great deal if you're someone who rides rail-trails, gravel roads, smooth surface single tracks, or groomed snowmobile trails. It can be a workout depending on what level of assist that you use. 0 is no assist and 5 is full assist. There is also a thumb throttle so if your assist level is set too low, you can give the bike a little boost. I have used the bike on rough single tracks and think that it is unsuited. If you are going uphill on rough terrain, you will need to use an assist level that makes you go too fast. The cons of the bike are its weight and that you'll need to buy a really heavy duty bike rack. It weighs about 70# with battery and 60# without. It's too heavy to peddle unassisted up a grade. Rail-trail mileage is about 40 miles. The photo I've included is after 31 miles of rail-trail and you can see that I was showing 60%. But the rate of discharge is not linear and it would be close to 30% after 40 miles. I've done some single track riding in hills and guess that the mileage is no more than 25 miles. Gravel roads would be 30. But that's plenty of miles for me! (Never, ever get below 10% or you'll ruin the battery.) I am anxious to learn what the impact of cold weather will have on the battery. A really good quality and lighter eBike would be over $5,000. This is a great price for a eBike.
I bought my eBike a little over 6 months ago. I've been riding it almost every day. At first, I didn't realize how good the quality was for this bike, but when I started comparing to everybody else I see on the bike paths, I realized what a nice bike I had bought. I had knee surgery several times in my 20's and since have not been able to ride a normal bicycle. With my eBike, when I feel my knee is starting to hurt, I just let the eBike do most of the work to get back home. Always with a normal bike, I would end up in pain and then quit riding. This hasn't happened to me with my eBike. Before summer came, I was riding my eBike from my house to the lake to go fishing almost every day. I threw a little pole and some crappie jigs in a backpack and can easily get down and back in an hour with about about 20 minutes of fishing. It feels like real freedom to finally get out and get some fresh air and sunshine. It's not only helped my physical health, but I think mentally is has helped me too. I really enjoy getting outside every day now. Sometimes, I just blow right by those guys on expensive non-electric bicycles. I love it. One feature I didn't see on the Amazon page that I like most about this bike is a setting that allows it to change the help level automatically. At first, I tried using level 5 because I like to get to the lake and back, but on level 5, it pushes you too hard when you are trying to do something simple like do a u-turn. After I found the auto-help setting that goes from 1 to 5 depending on how hard I pedal, I was really happy. With it turned on, it helps just a little when you are going slow, and when you want to pedal very fast, it helps as much as possible. It's really great. I can't really say anything but great things about this bike. It's a wonderful bike, and I feel the quality is really great. I would like to recommend that people buy a helmet, a side mirror, and a red flashing light for the rear of the bike. These do not come with it. These are the things I found that were "must-buy accessories". When you get going 30mph on an ebike, you realize very quickly that you need a helmet. 25+mph feels a lot faster on an ebike than on a motorcycle. When you are going 25mph or more, you'll find right away that a mirror is necessary also, so you can keep your eyes on the road ahead. The bike comes with an excellent headlamp, but I bought a flashing led lamp that attaches to the pole of my seat, so people can see me better at night from behind. I ride my bike day and night, and the extra led on the back makes me feel a little safer.
It's the last post!
