Not bad, but the range and rear derailleur suck.

I’m wondering if the battery is removable

I would want to use this to get to the subway than secure it and travel to work (when back to office is in effect)

I was looking at teovelo but those are 2500 soo this would be a saving of 1000$

I only need to do 8 km each way soo 16 km per day

The other thing I’m wondering is the rain resistance

It says right in the specs that the battery is removable (most of them are). The challenge would still be securing something like this. Thieves are content stealing $200 Crappy Tire bikes so when they come across something like this, it would be like they've hit the motherlode...

Yeah I think teovelo have some audible anti theft but I would need to add it to this one

As I would be leaving the bike in a public environnement secure to a bike rack but still

People suck, that something I didn’t have to think about with work from home and even if I’m going back in the office 1-2 days a week I wanted to save on gas and do little bit of exercise

As others have mentioned, it will eventually get stolen, not worth taking the risk. On the other hand get yourself a portable foldable electric scooter or similar that you could take with to work plus you could charge it at your desk.

and to that the battery capacity 48V 10.4 Ah is very small for a heavy bike with fat tires.



I have Yukon Voltbike 48 V 17.5 Ah similar weight and FAT tires. I get around 60 km medium assist and always pedaling.

You'd be better off with one without fat tires. These bikes are really meant for snow/sand surfaces, not asphalt.
Not sure if the seat post length installed, but if you left it in the position shown in the photos, your knees will be around your ears. Definitely not good for pedalling.

Not finding any "Jetson" bikes on Costco.ca that aren't kids' versions (or a scooter)... maybe they don't carry that anymore. Any chance you have a link to that product? The link in that thread takes you to Costco's price match policy page it seems.

Its in and out of stock constantly. Though you probably have better chance in store.

There are benefits to riding a fat tire besides snow and sand, but yes they get less mileage.

Those JETSON bikes are laughable at best I'm sorry. you get what you pay for and what you are paying for with those is a piece of junk.

It's definitely removable, they are using a battery case that tons of ebike use. you can even see the lock on the picture. this bike is actually a pretty decent deal for what it is. The battery is a bit small though.

Agree with there being better options for someone just looking for first mile/last mile transport, but I would say that fat tire bikes are still OK for asphalt. Many consider them like the SUVs of the bike world (can go pretty much anywhere).

That being said, if I was seriously considering one for commuting (and mostly/exclusively for that purpose), I would look into a lighter weight /folding one that I could carry with me and take to the office, to help avoid the potential theft issues. Something like a Carbo, though I realize it's certainly quite a bit more expensive than this one.

For the sale price not bad. But at 2k I would look elsewhere. Volt bike has a nice fat Tire bike for a little over 2k and I believe they are in stock.
