Not a Power Assisted Pedal Cycle ..beware the importers/dealers claims
I refer to your application ADDEND3898 for 32 2016 Ningbo A-OK ES-020A and
ADDEND3899 for 17 2016 Ningbo A-OK ES-020 lodged on 6 September 2016.
Due to a number of enquiries from other jurisdictions, the Department has recently
reviewed the assessment of power assisted pedal cycles, as defined in the Australian
Design Rules (ADR) vehicle categories. For a vehicle to be determined a power
assisted pedal cycle (AB) category vehicle and be eligible for importation under the
Non Road Vehicle import option it must be a pedal cycle to which one or more
auxiliary propulsion motors are attached and must not exceed a 200watt power output.
The only exception to this requirement is for a “Pedalec” which may have a 250watt ...
Use it to commute from Essendon to Docklands furthest trip was Essendon to Brighton return
In the first year returned it 3 times for battery problems. Stranded many times as battery lasted nowhere long enough to return home, they replaced ^faulty^ batteries relunctantly n only bcos I threatened legal action. My bike has been out of action since I called the police after the mechanic assaulted me throwing me out bcos i would not accept another makdshift battery which all have failed leaving me stranded. They only guaratee the battery now for 3 mnths w a replacement costing THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS. Batteries are dreadful expensive and ...fail completely. The company refused to finally give me a battery at all saying they didnt have any. Dreadful dishonest service decord they are a shonky business the bikes look n ride well but lites fail often n getting repairs involves taxis back n forth to outer suburb Heidelberg w no repairs being completed. Do not buy one if you plan to use it more than once a week for max distance of 30km trip it w die on you. Reported them to consmer affairs for bad service and exhorbitant charges etc, if u get a puncture a tyre n tube costs ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS AUSTRALIAN. No companies stock their tyre wheel sizes in Australia so 18 mnths later i still cannot get a new battery. Do not trust their male mechanic, the manager is lovely n honest but he is a crook n violent n dishonest horrible experience
Appalling Customer Service/advice etc
I wouldn't buy from this company at all, when I went to look at purchasing their bikes, the woman was really cagey about giving me much information, was pretty dismissive/rude and left me feeling no confidence if anything was to go wrong. Other reviews have said that they've had problems with communicating & getting parts. Do your homework people, there are other models out there. I've just been to ME bikes in Port Melbourne - customer service outstanding and I"m already looking at purchasing from them!
