5" tire capable is somewhat rare for cheaper fat bikes. Interesting

I see not lith battery.

The battery looks rather small for a bike of this type. I own an ebike with lith battery. I love it. Lith batteries are more expensive and much lighter.

Battery is Lithium Ions. Yes... battery is small at 10.5Ah. Typical fat bike would have a 48/56v 14Ah battery pack.

Not bad given that people tend to jack the prices up at this time

What kind of battery do you expect for a $1200 ebike?

It's almost worth saving money for one that has a larger battery (a good chunk of the cost) and motor. Unless you're not planning on ever going far; plus not sure how long you'll keep whatever capacity there is before it starts degrading.

As someone who doesn't know what a fat bike is I initially thought it was for weight loss especially with the Covid

66 lbs weight - that is quite heavy so you better not be lifting this much

I think that 80lbs is the package weight and not the ebike alone...
Confirmed bike weight 66lbs which is normal for a fat bike.

Forget the cold season with that bike/battery combo... battery is way too weak...

I saw this in store, the tires are gigantic. 5" is a full 1" wider than normal fat bikes which just causes more drag with zero benefit unless you ride exclusively on sand.

You get what you pay for: build quality is sub par. I used to have an ebike with cable disc brakes like this bike and regretted it: I had to squeeze really hard at every stop cuz of all the extra weight & speed.

Got a new ebike with hydraulic disc brakes and wow what a difference. It's not just about being more comfortable during rides but hydraulic brakes will stop faster in emergencies too.

Oh ya the brake levers for this bike are setup for asian countries, so the right side controls the front brakes.

I have a Radpower Radrover and the cable disc brakes are fine. You can even pull rear tire slides if you want... Brakes can easily be adjusted. Obviously hydraulic brakes are an upgrade but they're definitely not necessary.

I'd guess that all those who downvoted for "Bad product/service" already own one of this, and can comment why it is a bad product please? ;) ;)
