[Costco] EbGO CC47 ebike - $1599.99

Spotted this online. For those looking, Costco has this ebike (no idea of the quality) for $400 off or $1599.99 (including shipping) for the next several days. A lot of ebikes (i.e. entry level / more affordable models) are in a similar price range, however not sure how this compares to the others in terms of specs. Buying from Costco would be a plus in case you run into any issues.

> 500W brushless motor and 48v 10.5 Ah (505Wh) battery

I have a 1000W 20aH e-bike that I built myself. I'm ~195lbs and I find the 1000W is just able to deal with my weight
and with the 20aH battery is able to give me a few hours of travel time.

A bike (like the one noted) with half the capability is going to be a disappointment IMHO!

Unless you like short (1/2 hr) bike rides in places where there are no hills!

Legal restrictions apply, so 500w and 32kmh is the legal limit in many states in Canada.
500w is actually decent, I have a jetson bolt pro and it states 350w on the tin, it actually is rather snappy due to the light weight.

I also have a 4kw capable scooter, and it's pretty darn fast, but the extra heft makes it feel less peppy than the 350w jetson bolt pro.

It's all relative.

Did you follow any guide online to make it? Is the result decent? Would you mind sharing more about it? (I am starting a build, so I find this interresting)

Would like to follow this too. What does it look like and how much was the total cost?

Aliexpress is your friend for any electronic DIY project. Just do a quick search for "ebike kit" and dive in the rabbit hole.

Here is an example of an OK build:

Kit: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000757519837.html
Battery: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001625912806.html

Total about $1000

The bigger the battery, the more range you get (obviously). Just make sure to find one with the same voltage. This example shows a 48v version but there are motors with more performance that will use 52v or 60v.

A friend of mine used this kit to convert his old downhill bike and was very impressed: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32476876343.html

I wouldn't buy any battery from china, you have no idea what junk cells they put in it. I got my 72v24.5ah battery from litespeedbikes, fits perfectly in my xcf fatbike, but it was far from cheap.

For Nova Scotians, this would appear to qualify for the new $500 provincial rebate.

Out here in the flatland of Saskatchewan the provincial govt will try and tax you extra to keep you off the roads that I ❤O&G have paid for.

wondering if this bike is worth it at this price, has anyone had experience with this brand or model?

How would they know that it's 1000w? Stop you, pull out a multimeter and ask you to press the throttle?

I believe you need a sticker that says the manufacturer certified this to be an ebike under Canadian laws or something like that. If you build one you wouldn’t have that
