I had my bike for some months now, and have ridden it about 170 miles. I really love the bike, but there are some issue.
First, I would not plan on assembling this bike unless you are a real bike gear-head. I bought two of them and had all kinds of issues with assembly. I contacted Ariel and they were very prompt in their replies, but even after their advice there were too many issues with assembly for me to get it done--and there were different issues with each bike. No way, no how should you plan on the 15 minute assembly that they tout on their website. I ultimately had a mobile bike mechanic come to my house and he took about an hour to assemble each bike. Once assembled, the bikes work great.
The power assist, as advertised, has a maximum speed of about 20 MPH, but I have found that it is best for starting off, when it gives you a lot of power, and going up hills, where it provides a lot of assist. On a slight incline I have found that it kicks in when I am at 14 MPH or under, and boosts me up to about 16MPH, when it turns off. It does not keep you going at 20 MPH, although on rare occasions (which I can't figure out) it boosts me up to 19 or so MPH. The throttle helps sometimes when the bike does not seem to want to assist, but you should not plan on any assist when you are going 15MPH or above, even with the throttle (although sometimes it works at those speeds, just rarely).
The fit, finish, and parts are appropriate for the price of the bikes. I also own a Raleigh electric mountain bike, which cost more than double the price of this bike, and the difference in parts and fit is noticeable, but that is not a surprise, as it is much more expensive bike.
The battery is a beast. I have ridden 37 miles and have not come close to using half of the battery. I believe them when they say it can take you 80 miles.
I recently purchased a W class bike from Ariel Rider Ebikes. I love it but it isn't perfect. Some shipping issues may have caused the front rim to be warped slightly, causing the tire to rub on the fender each rotation. A quick visit to a local bike shop and a simple adjustment took care of the problem. Arda (the Ariel Rider owner(?)), has worked with me and been extremely helpful. Arda stated that he will reimburse me for my out of pocket expense which is truly excellent customer service. The only other issue I have had thus far (in 35 miles of riding) is that the electronics shut off or lock up occasionally on particularly rough pavement. If I stop riding, then re power up the system (sort of like rebooting a computer), it works great. It's kind of an inconvenience, but by no means a deal breaker. I would highly recommend this product to anyone interested and I believe it to be an excellent value. Having Arda listen to and respond to your needs is a real plus. One other thought to add. I recently purchased a C class for my wife. To me, the C class is the more comfortable choice on the terrible pavement we have here in parts of Sonoma County, CA. 4 and a half stars for the W class. I love the looks and the color! Just buy an Ariel Rider Ebike. You won't be disappointed.
Love it. Very smooth and easy to use. My wife is very impressed to0
A quick easy fix of a tail light sensor and everything has gone very well. The comfort is great. The ride for a 100% disabled veteran with back and knee issues are a non issue with the power assist. It is very smooth and has a nice cruise range. Gears are smooth and quiet. Easy to ride with a note on sharp turns, as the length of the W class takes wider turns. Saddle bags carry equipment with easy. Bike trails are a dream to ride on. A little harder on bumps but nothing unpleasant. Plenty of power and range. It's even easy to ride on a low power setting if you want to work your legs more but when you want a nice break the assist or the power grip cruises you along with easy. Solid frame construction. Nice work to the staff at Ariel.
Love riding again . I don't have the legs or lungs I used to have , this bike makes up for that . It's comfortable , it's fast and it's just fun to ride . The quality welds and beautiful paint job are second to none . I did struggle to attach the handlebar gooseneck to the bike but was successful . Would I recommend this bike to anyone ? I would recommend this bike to everyone . Shifting is spot on , brakes are incredible . I'm averaging 17-20 mph on level 3 in 6 or 7 gear and its just so easy . It really is like having the wind at your back at all times . My one beef , make the tiny manual a pdf so these old eyes can read it . Again , great bike for an excellent price . Thank you for getting me on the road again . Dino J Monterastelli .
