I'm gonna do some checking. See if anything else is out there - other than Amazon. Still cheaper to convert an old bike but not by much. Plus, one doesn't have to worry about wiring & ohm's law & batteries, if one isn't too hip on the subject.

The pack is attached to the downtube. Depending on how it's built, you might be able to replace the bad cell in the pack. If not, you'd buy the $200 battery with charger, or whatever 36v option is available at the time. They're lithium batteries so they'll have a good lifespan, IF they stand up to bumpy bike rides.

BTW - this is the same Hyper ebike I first posted in another thread back in June 2019. The only difference I can see is that it's now $100 cheaper. Yeah, I'll kick myself if they knock off yet another $100 for Negro Viernes. That's generally how my luck runs.
So, bottom line, you can get a complete bike, with slightly less range, for an extra $30, vs buying kits & assembly.
wait, if you buy the kits, don't you still need to add a bike?
Yes. Maybe I could have worded that better. A complete ebike is only $30 more than buying the kits. The Hyper ebike will have aprox 25% less range than a kit bike, in theory anyway. 7.5 amp hr for the Hyper battery vs 10 amp hr for the kit battery I looked at.

i read several of the reviews on WM's link and one said that it only has an hour run time, 40 mins if it's hilly, and i thought that would be adequate for just getting around town. not so much for the desert or actual mountains i guess.
i'm actually considering getting one of these, but since you've bitten the bullet i'll wait a bit.
Wrote this bike up on the other site a while back. The most foreboding comments I found, "it's great for small riders", and "it doesn't like hills".. On the other hand, one reviewer from a large city said it was very good on his commute, but half of his commute is on rails, the other half on flat land.
I've been interested in an e-bike conversion. At the same time, I don't want to feel like I've admitted that I might need it just yet. The Hyper E-ride is a nice looking bike, for 1/4 the price of the e-bike I'd be most interested in. Interested, but definitely can't get excited about a $1600 to $2000 Trek e-bike.
I thought I posted a top 10 list of reasons a person may not be ready for a budget bike. It included fixing a flat, chain falling off, left pedal falling off, etc. A large percentage of those folks will buy this bike too. It's also at the low end of the amp hour & torque curves, hence the price tag. There will always be those that buy a Ford Escort then complain it doesn't handle like a Porsche.
for 1600, a bike had better come with 2 or 3 lovely young ladies to help me get it up...over the hills.
que the rimshot. What happens when you put a motor on an already overpriced bike? Overpriced electric bike. "overpriced" is subjective, I know. To haul a 200lb person home on a 45 lb semi-mountain ebike after a hard ride, your gonna need at least a 48 volt system & 12-15 Ahr battery. That takes a few bucks. (Forget the watts ratings. Like LED light ratings, its misdirection for most people.)

Was estimated to be delivered today but haven't even received an email confirming shipment. Will do some checking. On-Track is the absolute worst shipping service in the US & Walmart uses them frequently.
lurker: not in jail? youve been slackin. power to the people! (whatever that means)

Admin Czar: Glad to see you're still around, lurkster. This is a good place for work logs & photos. I did have a backlog of russian & chinese spambags waiting for member approval. Just don't see it happening tho

Admin Czar: That is to say, if they want my help, keep the IT/IS people out of my systems. In every case, 100% of the time, incompetent admins (or budgets) are the cause. Since 9/11 guidelines for DCS security have been in place but over time are now ignored.

Admin Czar: No, I'm not dead, in jail or hospital. I've temporarily revived my process controls career. Every gas, water or power entity I've dealt with over 25 years has been cyber attacked. Windows admins are now banned from industrail PLCs & DCS systems.

desertbikes: Lets hope, for Cat's sake, that it just a hormonal phase. That was the excuse for everything not long ago. Not acceptable in the post-civil social apocalypse. Oh, and skin color is now THE most important thing about a person. Its hard to keep track.

tomcat65: To those who were concerned: Everything's cool now. Thinking maybe she dreamed about someone else, and is mad at them now? I dunno..
Jul 3, 2021 8:54:17 GMT -7
tomcat65: I think she's still trying to figure it out. She's definitely a believer in prophetic dreams.. I'm just staying out of the way
Jun 29, 2021 17:26:18 GMT -7
desertbikes: Oh boy. And those witch doctor people can take dreams to be prophetic. Besides, chicks are just crazy. I'll take a dollar for every time I got in trouble for what happened in a woman's dream. There's no defense against nuts.

tomcat65: The Witch Doctor woke up mad at me this morning. Said she had a dream. I might be eating a lot of drive-thru this week. She took off this morning, supposed to be back here by 8:00a.m. for a web meeting. Maybe she'll cool off.. No Idea what she dreamed. lol

desertbikes: "sick" is good in today's lingo. Like "bad" was back in our century. Maybe "old" will be like that someday.

desertbikes: That's a shame. Funny how we can watch videos of dozens of humans getting wasted in grotesque ways but when they pan in on that cute little puppy, we all think, "Not the puppy!!" Is he/she gonna be OK?
