Love My Ride-Battery Though Questionable

I have had my Hilltopper for about five years. I have severe COPD and unable to ride without assist except downhill or on flat. I live at 6,000 ft. in the mountains of Colorado. I love my bike when I have a good battery. Riding a few hundred miles per year around small town and when batteries are new they work well. I just lost two of the expensive 12 mi. range ones that died just after 1 yr. warranty so out something like $500. If you buy, dbl. check your battery condition continually (not just green light-ride the miles and clock them on t he flat, and be sure to send in for warranty as soon as you note a dip in mileage. My last one was still working for my short trips and then just died and I had not fully checked it out for some miles and was probably dying for some time with less and less miles left in it though green light on charger indicated good. Keep checking and send it in as soon as not performing as it should, otherwise you will be out of warranty period. The motors are not serviceable and have sealed bearings that cannot be serviced, thus when it begins grating and making odd noises, motor is failing or battery is weak. I lost one at only a few hundred miles but company replaced it. Love the bike when it works but the batteries have to start doing better. Without the bike my copd has essentially grounded me so will just have to grin and bear the cost of new battery. SB

I've had my e-wheel about 3 weeks. Recieved it about one week after ordering. Installed in 15 minutes. Got the small battery.(8 mile) perfect for my comute to work. Charges from dead to full in less than 2 hours. Love it. No drag when not using, so pedaling is a breeze. Definatly going to purchase the 40 mile battery
2 years and still going strong on original 12 mile battery

I've had my hilltopper for 2 years with light usage and I had it stored 9 months without charging. i just used it today and it still
has great charge capacity and runs great.
I converted an old 6 speed beach cruiser (a heavy steel bike). It was an easy installation.
It is difficult to see that the bike is electric which is great.
I am 56 and this makes riding like I was a kid again. FUN!
I would give it 6 stars if I could. I love the pure simplicity of this system and ten minute install. I bought the $599 12 mile pkg.

Great product!! Only some 'minor' issues: on/off switch on battery needs to take more effort to switch. Maybe recess it with a cover? Velcro strap on throttle button tends to slide around when on handlebars: simple fix is use a 1/2-inch hose clamp. This item really deserves a 10 Star rating!
