E bike purchase made easy

published

The website was easy to navigate. Communication & follow up upon ordering was excellent. Ordered 2 beach cruisers for our beach side apartment. Was so happy with them that I have just ordered 2 additional Tourney models. Build quality is very good. I would certainly recommend this company.

Purchased in October 2019.

I live in a very hilly district and normal push biking was exhausting. This Aseako Cruiser is the perfect solution. The bike has a throttle so you can 'drive' it like a scooter (which is a guilty pleasure) but it also gets you out and about like a normal bike. Very comfortable and beautifully made (recommend getting the kit assembled by a mechanic will cost up to $100), it's perfect for commuting or riding for pleasure. My only other comment is that the bike is solid and therefore quite heavy so you need to adapt to that. Get one though they're great!

Cruiser

Hi. I am just starting to consider and electric bike. Can anyone advise what an average speed for one of these bikes is. My work is 16kms away (Belconnen to Woden) with a few decent hills and I need to confirm how long roughly the commute would take? The Citte, cruiser and alto are all around the same price point, do any of these models stand out as better then the others?

Hi Hayley,
Thanks for your question. In relation to speed you need to be aware that for legal onroad use, assistance from the electric motor is limited to a max 25km per hour. This does not mean you cannot travel faster than this under your own pedal power but the motor is programmed to cut out at 25km to meet legal restrictions. For further details on the current legislation for e-bikes you can visit our FAQ section at https://www.aseakoelectricbikes.com.au/faq/
Re the right model for you it depends on your riding preferences. The Citte is designed for specific urban/city use where most riding will be on either roads and or sealed bike paths. It has a full pannier rack and a 3 speed internal hub gear system that is very reliable, low maintenance and easy to use. The Cruiser is exactly the same as the Citte in terms of drive and gearing system but has slightly shorter and wider tyres and obviously a full step through frame for these who are looking of ease of getting on or off or prefer a more upright riding position. Both bikes have full pannier racks for baskets, bags etc.
The Alto has the same drive system but uses a 8 speed derailleur gear system. (has 8 external sprockets at rear wheel) This system can require some additional maintenance over time but generally cheaper than and internal gear hub but has a few more gears at the high end which can assist with straight line speed. There is also 2 levers to change the gears up and down as compared to a simple twist control on the Citte & Cruiser Bikes.
Hopefully this assists. For additional assistance to match the right model, please feel free to contact us direct.
Kind regards

We have the alto and is ideal as a commuter bike. Step through is easy for both men and women. With pedal assist you can get up to 40kph down hill but governor cuts out at 25kph. You should be able to get to work in about 40 minutes or a bit less. We have found supplier very helpful. We had a bike mechanic assemble the bike for us just to make sure all worked well. Aseako can probably put you on to their local maintenance person.

Hi Lizzy, I've had my bike for about three years now. There is a slight gear-box/motor noise occasionally and then it seems to go away. It doesn't seem to affect the bike's performance. The actual gear cogs etc could be very el-cheapo, but there's no way of knowing unless the whole motor is pulled apart. If your bike is still under warranty, get back to Aseako. They seem good people to deal with when a problem occurs. Peter

Hello Aseako Rep, the photos of the Cruiser model dont show the disc brakes on the front wheel. Is this an error? Also, does this model come with a stand? and do you sell saddle bags as an extra?

Regards Jack

Hi, The Cruiser does come with a Tektro disc brake on the front even though the picture does not show this. Yes the Cruiser comes with a stand. We do not currently sell pannier bags, but you will find some very well priced bags on ebay. Regards Shaun

Yes, Shaun is certainly right.
My Tourney has disc brakes front and back and a stand. Going by the Models page at http://www.aseakoelectricbike.com.au/models/ the Cruiser model looks more oriented to riding and shopping about town rather than the rough stuff. (I will shortly be testing my Tourney out as a farm bike,)
I have pannier bags for my road bike and mountain bike, but they don't work so well on the Tourney. A normal rear carrier has a post going down to the rear axle, and that post keeps them off the rear wheel, but that can't be with rear suspension independent of the frame.. They would bounce around and snag the spokes of the rear wheel.
The solution I favour at the moment is an easily removable basket for the rear carrier. I checked one out a few days ago at a local bike shop. Price less than $50. But I'm still looking.
Hope this helps.
