Electric Bike Company Model M Review – 1.7k

https://electricbikereview.com/electric-bike-company/model-m/ The Electric Bike Company Model M is a super approachable wave style step-thru cruiser with small 24″ wheels that keep the frame low to the ground. Assembled and customized in America. Extremely well supported with great customer service and an industry leading five year comprehensive warranty! Ships fully assembled, 100% ready to ride. Extra emphasis on charger and battery quality here with extra fuses and higher quality parts. Comes standard with bright integrated lights (two 6-LED lights on the rear!) Optional rear rack comes with a blinking tail light pre-installed. Powerful 180mm hydraulic disc brakes with thick 2.3mm rotors, quad piston calipers, and large adjustable-reach levers with motor inhibitors. Color LCD display with full sized USB charging port on the side, lots of adjustment options in the display settings. Highly adjustable drive modes offer Class 1, 2, or 3 operation (pedal assist, throttle, and 25mph options). The variable speed trigger throttle is easy to use and the sealed 12-magnet cadence sensor performs consistently. Extra large saddle and long steel handlebar provide great comfort, but EBC sells an optional seat post and suspension fork upgrade for further comfort. Amazing range of upgrade options including high capacity battery pack for extended range (20ah vs. 10.5ah), paint matched steel fenders and chain cover (or real wood), MIK compatible rear rack, cup holder and waterproof speakers, bags and custom-painted baskets… Price jumps considerably if you change from the stock white color, shipping costs extra, the headlight does not point where you steer, steel parts can rust if scratched (but they include touch-up paint).
