Re: Cycle Analyst

Assuming you can get them to send you the right model (don't listen to what they suggest), there are three 'stages' to installing it. Installing the high current shunt (which I believe you need, but others will confirm that), mounting the unit itself (the handlebar mount is useless for anything larger than a bicycle, unless you can bungee the top of the stalk to one of your mirrors), and then wiring it. It doesn't come with a switch to turn off the display, so you get to choose between having it always on, having it "forget" information if turned off (which you have to accomplish via creative wiring), or having to open the case and solder in another pair of wires to turn the display light on and off. Most people love them, but unless you love counting amps and watts and fiddling with electronics, a good voltmeter, with a little practice, will suffice to tell you how much range you have left. Somebody - maybe them, maybe a better company - will come out with a user-friendly version soon, I hope.

Re: Cycle Analyst

Nice scooter, BTW. Is the 750 watt motor enough to give it adequate power? What's the top speed under various conditions?

Re: Cycle Analyst

Thanks.

Is the 750 watt motor enough to give it adequate power?
I bought the bike about 60 miles from where i live. So I can't give a detailed report on Power of the bike.

The bike has a 2 power setting switch under the throttle.
1st setting limits speed to 20 mph.
2nd setting limits to max speed.

I bought yesterday. Test rode for 1/2 hr. Max speed via GPS was 31 mph.
In Washington State Electric-assisted bicycles = (1000 watt 20 mph.) Max.

I'm 150 lbs. I climbed several hills that were 10 - 15 degree. If the 1st setting is used...I slowed to
10 mph.....If the 2nd setting is used.......Speed slowed to 18 mph.
I thought not to bad. Though I don't know the bike yet; checked air in tires; nor adjusted anything.

Comparing it to the xb-610.......The new bike has alot more power and torque.

It's raining in my state today. So i will tinker with the bike and ride when able to.
Like most China bikes there are trade offs i,m sure. will have to wait and see. Luckily, the dealer is
not to far away if needed.

Ok Thank you.

A more user friendly version gets my vote.
