Bike is amazing!
Bike is amazing! It's fast! It feels sturdy yet is lighter than my other ebike (a Townie). Tires ride great on asphalt, concrete or grass. It's easy to shift and change PAS levels. If choosing to assemble yourself, one must be patient. It takes 20 minutes or more to unpack. It is VERY WELL WRAPPED AND PADDED. Assembly time will vary, but I don't see how anyone can do it in 30 minutes the FIRST time! It's more important to get it right! Tools included allow you to do all the necessary adjustments that will take place during your first few rides. I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH THIS PURCHASE! Minor concerns: Unable to find in manual how to reset Trip odometer. It references "Reset Trip Odmeter" but doesn't tell you how to do it. Maybe it was omitted by mistake in the copy I downloaded. Anyway, I figured it out. Press the minus button and the M button at the same time and hold a few seconds. This is a well built high performance thriller!
Great, the people who bought them are very Happy. That always make me happy.
Strong & Silent
I researched Ebikes for months before finding Denago and I'm just blown away. I wanted a quiet & strong Ebike that I could pedal most of the time and occasionally use pedal assist, and I was not disappointed. Easy to assemble, excellent responsive customer service, and very easy to ride. What's not to love!
My Husband Loves It.
I bought this e-bike for my husband as he has aged out (HaHa) of a regular bike. He raves about it and tells everyone how great it is. It arrived perfectly packed and took about 45 minutes to assemble. Great purchase and I will probably buy another for myself soon.
Everything was great. Super easy to assemble. Great instructions - easy to follow. We're lovin' the bikes!! Highly, highly recommend.
