I am assuming you mean the Lectric XPedition. I have never ridden this bike myself but have seen people riding it. If you do purchase the bike definitely get the dual batteries. Usually, buying the 2nd battery separately at a later date will be more expensive.
I use it as a car replacement. Over 300 miles on it so far. I've hauled my 3 kids to the arcade, picked up groceries and use it and a landscaping bike trailer from WIKE to haul my two big dumb dogs to the park.
My area is quite hilly so I opted for dual batteries, but I think most people should anyway since you get the second battery as a package deal much cheaper than purchasing it individually later.
If its flat where you live you'll get crazy range out of this bike. It has no suspension, but that hasn't bothered me that much, and I've got a bad vertebra as well. Invest in a good seat and/or suspension seat post if your local roads are bad!
The bike comes fully assembled, and the only thing that might require some adjustment is the shifter. Mine was fine out of the box however.
Hello - new member here. Hope I'm posting this in the correct location. Just purchased (8/24/23) a new Lectric XPedition. I'm 73 and have been riding bikes for many years and this is my first e-bike. Still ride a non-powered bike but wanted to try an electric. Purchased the 2-battery option and a second charger. Have only put 10 miles on the bike so far and love it - except, both tubes have failed since I got the bike on the road. Both times I found a small hole in the inside of the tube on the rim side. I found no issues with the rim - the rim tape looks good so I'm assuming a bad batch of tubes. I ordered and received two new tubes on Amazon and have replaced both of them this AM (9/4/23). Using old tubes, I added a second layer of tube for the replacements as I have not yet found 20x3 heavy duty tubes and am not ready for the Tanus or similar product. Has anyone had an issue like this with a Lectric brand bike or the XPedition in particular?
I'll post updates on the bike as I put more miles on it. I have added two drink cages, a second head and taillight, mirror and travel bag for spare tools and tubes. I'm looking for heavy duty tires and tubes (I hate flats). Thanks for any input anyone can add. DW in Dallas.
Also - wanted to add that the bike was easy to unpack (watch the Lectric video on "first ride). I checked all adjustments and found everything OK. Had to adjust the seat height and handlebar for my height (5'8" at 190 lbs), and add air to the tires. No damage from shipping. Make sure you move the chain to the roller guide and, after reading the instructions, off I went. I only tried PAS 1-3 on the class 2 setting. The bike climbs hills like they aren't there and I can only imigime what the bike does on a class 3 setting in PAS 5. Rode 10-13 miles and batteries still show a full charge - then the tires went flat. At least they held out 'till I was home...
