[Costco] Costco.ca Daymak EC1 Pro Carbon Fibre Electric Bicycle $2300

Seems like a good deal for a Carbon Fibre E-bike. 250w motor, wish it was 500w.
But surprise to see Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.

Seems decent. Real win is the weight. My ebike is 70lbs and it's a major pain. Moving it up a couple stairs is a pain, but even stopped at a traffic light you feel the weight. Hopefully all ebikes go carbon fiber.

Even with carbon fibre frame it won't save you much weight.
The weight is all on the motor and batteries.

Well this bike is basically half the weight of my bike, so I'd say that is major weight savings.

This bike claims to be 35 lb, which is pretty impressive, but it's underpowered. The new radmission is Rad's lightest option, at 50 lb. (500w @ $1400).. does carbon really make up that much difference in weight??

It's half the weight bro. My Giant Roam is around 35lbs and I have no issues riding it very fast and lifting it easily to attach on my bike carrier. If that weight includes the battery 35 pounds is almost feather light.

interesting offering. The problem with most of these ebikes is that they usually only come in one size. Which is "too big" in my case. If you are about 5 9", this would be a good buy

The real bike brands like Giant, Trek, etc offer multiple sizes, but they cost a lot more than these ebike startups
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I wish VanMoof would sell their bikes in Canada... Really want the S3.

This bike isn't bad, but it came out back in 2015/16 I think.

My aluminum is 43lb loaded with empty panniers. The motor is 7lb and the battery is 8.5lb. Bonus is I don't need special torque tools to work on it

Yeah, so this is basically half the weight of yours. That's huge in terms of weight savings.

FYY is this not how motor WATT work. Motors advertised for 250 can take 500-750, They are advertised higher for marketing and advertised at 250 to get around laws in some areas.
