    In this video we give our new Lectric XP 2.0 eBikes our honest review. What we like and dislike about them and what we hope Lectric will take into consideration for their next generation of Lectric eBikes. We've had our eBikes for over 2 months before making this video and we LOVE them. They are so much fun to ride around the campground and town in. We also share their 2021 Black Friday holiday sale with you so you can take advantage of their best price!

    Our Inception:
    We downsized from a three bedroom house in November 2017 to a 2000 Fleetwood Southwind Class A. We dubbed her Southwind Sally. We did some minor renovations with paint and adding new window treatments. In December 2018 we purchased our fifth wheel. It is a 2014 Forest River Columbus 320 RS by Palomino. In February 2020 we hit the road before the COVID-19 Pandemic lockdowns started.

    Those lockdowns forced us to hold up at the Tinker, AFB FamCamp in Oklahoma until May. We hit the road again traveling to Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana (where we had floor work done on the Columbus), Ohio and Michigan. We decided we were going to try and make it to Colorado to see the sights, and made our way there. This is when we decided to create our channel.

    We have been watching our favorite RUplayers channels for years and decided maybe we should start to capture our own adventures. That decision produced our channel Compass Roadz and our first video.

Great video guys! Love the attention to detail. Ordered mine a week ago, should arrive this week. Got it on sale. Btw you mention accessories, and getting the bike on sale it comes with accessories, is that the case for my situation as well , how does it work?!

Yes!!! I think this past Friday was the last day of the sale you are talking about, or at least to get it by Christmas. The sale said you should get 4 accessories with it. I just checked the website and they’ve already taken the sale info down so I don’t recall exactly what accessories they will be sending. Let us know though when you receive yours. Thanks for watching!

Definitely keep the entry price as low as possible. Then purchase the pieces or extras that you want. Hindsight is 20/20 but it would have been good to donate the seats to someone who has a broken or wore out seat. My wife and I just ordered two step through models on the Black Friday sale. If we also get the standard seats we will give them to our kids and grandkids I'm sure one of them will use them.

It would have been good to donate the seats you are correct. With living fulltime in an RV space and weight are things we have to consider. So instead of hauling them around we had to ditch them. I say if living in a stick and bricks home we definitely would have donated them. Living in an RV when one thing comes in, then one thing must go.

This is my first time commenting on youtube. I've watched hundreds of videos but never cared to comment. You guys impressed me, not necessarily on everything you said, but the way you both spoke. Sounds like the common man, two guys that are genuine and enjoy having fun. I agree with the sorry headlight and seat. I wear a helmet for safety reasons. Have a family and must take care of them, don't need a cracked skull. But to each their own. I'm sure you have a good reason for not wearing a helmet. I enjoy riding my Lectric bike at a state park near home, has great bike lanes. Do not care for the trails, too many roots and bumps.

Thanks. I’m (Dan) am the more balanced and try to be politically correct without going overboard. Kevin speaks from the hip and says exactly what he means. We don’t have sponsors that we have to worry about offending. We are both retired military and obviously not trying to please anybody. We try to be as transparent as possible while keeping it “PG” rated on our channel. Thank you so much for watching. We really appreciate it and enjoy sharing our experiences.

At 17:20 you mention it takes a couple of revolutions before PAS kicks in. In case you are not aware you can improve the responsiveness of your bike. The factory setting is 3 and you can set it to as low as 1 so that PAS kicks in at about 1/2 to 3/4 of a revolution. Check your manual the adjustment is somewhere in the menu. PS. I saw this in another YouTube video. I have not received my bike as yet so can’t give you anymore detail.

I’m about 220 and I didn’t notice any side wiggle with the suspension post. It fits in nicely tight and there’s a collar lock to keep it in place. But I didn’t notice any difference from the stock to the suspension post at all. Thanks for watching!

Gentlemen: Santa delivered two new 2.0's to my garage recently; they're still in the box. So I've spent some time reviewing You Tube to see what the foibles are with the new toys. Which is how I stumbled across your channel. First off, great job. I can understand direct non-sugarcoated language much easier than mumbo-jumbo. I'll be viewing your 11 function video in a bit so keep up the good work! These sale models included four "premium" accessories; the deluxe seat, the better headlight, luggage racks/baskets and a lock as well as the free shipping. I also ordered the mirror kit. No, my baskets haven't arrived yet. As the bikes are still in the box I can't tell you if it's all there or not but we'll see. As an avid touring motorcyclist for over 50 years I was an All The Gear All The Time (ATGATT) guy but fully support your choice to wear or not wear a brain bucket. I "usually" wear a helmet when riding mt regular bike and will probably continue that stance with this machine. I've found that I don't heal as quickly as I once did and I seem to bleed a lot easier too so...... I'll also add I spent almost 40 years in Fire/EMS and I've seen plenty of evidence in favor of wearing a helmet. 25 of those years were with the same USAF y'all served in but I was civilian side as a Firefighter/Fire Officer. Never a day I didn't want to go to work.... I'm typically not a negative comment guy but; your comments frequently mention safety and yada, yada, yada....in the first five seconds of this video you blow through a stop sign; one of my pet peeves is "bikes", in general, not obeying ALL traffic laws and rule of the road. I saw an earlier poster already commented so I'll not elaborate. Thanks for the great video...! Stay safe...!

Thank you for watching. Finally got our set of baskets on 24 Dec. I guess I (Kevin) should elaborate more on the helmet. I don’t feel that while in a campground I need to wear a helmet. The MPH is lower and I just feel it is just as safe. Yes I mention safety A Lot, but for the general public. Me not wearing a helmet doesn’t make it harder to see at night. With a helmet on or off that light is horrible. Yes I do agree that WE ALL should follow all posted signs and we really toiled over putting that part in the video. We knew we would most likely take some heat from it. The camera was on a tripod and I (Kevin) was ensuring it was clear. We will definitely be more responsible about these things in future videos. I hope I didn’t come across too arrogant because that wasn’t the intent of this comment. Thank you for your comment and we really do appreciate your honesty. We hope you had a Merry Christmas and wish you a prosperous New Year.

That’s good to know. We don’t know all the science behind it like that but others may understand how that works out when trying to compare other eBikes against the Lectric to make a good shopping decision. Thanks for watching and providing that input.

Keep in mind that the wattage rating for a motor is kind of misleading. At full throttle the Lectric motor draws 19 amps, so with a 48 volt battery it consumes 19 x 48 = 912 watts. That's the output you use for going up hills and the motor can output that for maybe 5-10 minutes.. The 500 watt rating is for CONTINUOUS draw and is based on how much heat the motor can dissipate. In other words, not that much of an everyday difference between 500 and 750 watts for climbing city hills and such.

The Rattan also looks like a great bike. Unfortunately we have not had any experience with them nor know of anyone personally that has one. You may have to search on YouTube for the “Rattan vs Lectric“ and see if you can find any side-by-side comparisons. But whichever you choose, make sure it is the best option for your particular situation whether it be features, weight, size, comfort, storage, or transporting etc. Thanks for watching and we hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

Yeah, the stock one is definitely an inferior product for what one pays for that bike. I could see if it was a regular bicycle for a few hundred bucks.

There are re-generative breaking eBikes but those types are very hard to peddle, if you have to use peddle power only to move the bike. You basically become the generator's power source. As I recall the reviews I have watched on eBikes like that, it only adds like 5- 10% longer battery power max.

I always wear a helmet even though it is not required where I live. Besides safety it prevents sunburn. PS. You should look into Bluetooth Smart Helmets. You’ll be able to talk to each other while riding or answer your phone or listen to music/radio.

@Compass Roadz Just so you know I found your 2 month take on the Lectric to be interesting even though I didn’t agree with everything. I do agree 100% with your seat headlight argument. It wouldn’t cost Lectric a penny more to include the upgrades standard. PS. I ordered a black Lectric XP 2.0 step thru (Black Friday deal) a few days ago. Should arrive in the dead of winter here in Canada. Already have a Jetson bolt pro. Even though the Jetson is more on the toy grade side it’s been great fun for the money (only $300 at Costco) and ideal for someone on the shorter side like me. I’m looking forward to the increased speed and comfort of my new Lectric.

9:03 I have to disagree with you guys here, I think the batteries are WAY too small. for the 300 dollars that Lectric charges for their replacement you can buy a 3rd party battery pack 2x bigger. It's just another sneaky way to gain more $$$.

Extra batteries for us aren’t needed yet, but who knows down the road. When we get to Florida in about a week we will put some more miles on them.

Our two Lectric ST bikes use a 48v 10.4ah battery. To get the 10.4ah spec they connect four 2600mah cells in parallel. 2.6 x 4 = 10.4 There are cells that can put out 3,500mah. Using them you would get 14ah. The major vendors (Sony, LG, Panasonic) are honest in their cell specs. The Chinese no-name cells are wildly inaccurate. Some excellent YouTube videos show this. $300 for a battery pack made of name-brand cells is a good price.

It also serves as a battery lock, to hold it in place. Might also help keep it from being snapped off.

Your suggestions make sense, but they would hurt their profit margin and price some people out. You may be willing to spend the extra cash but others are not. Accessories make it easier to customize, the yeah having to toss out the seat is kind of wasteful, maybe they can improve things when supply chains are better.

We bought the Lectric 2.0's and I agree the comfort seat is way better than stock... our stock seats went into boxes and are in our storage unit (We're Full Timers....) Also regarding helmets - ya, we spent the wad on them. Bought the Sena R1 EVO's (creates a mesh network for communications between riders... awesome to be able to just "talk" to each other when riding instead of turning our heads and screaming at each other.... When in a campground - likely NOT to use helmets, but when out on a trail or road, yes. Regarding transport, well, it sucks. Unfortunately, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a slanted hatch door which makes putting tubs in there side by side AND NOT folding down the rear seats an impossibility. I have to put my XP 2.0 in the jeep laying down on its side, and my wife's bike goes in our Class A RV's underbelly storage tray. Just couldn't get both folded bikes in my RVs tray. But we do love the bikes. Ive heard that you need to keep the batteries from getting too cold, so when it gets freezing we remove the batteries and keep both of them in an insulated area of our coach. Great video guys....

Hi there Troglegs! First, thanks for watching and we appreciate your comments. We definitely are going to check out your helmets as my frustration is trying to talk with Kevin when we are riding. It’s so hard to hear him and I don’t like to have to yell. You may have provided a great solution for us. If I can convince him to wear a helmet all the time. Again, I’m the campground I’m sure we won’t wear them so I don’t know if there is another solution for us aside from our Bluetooth wireless ear buds. We do bring our eBike batteries into the rv most nights and especially in colder weather. But I’m curious about how you stow your ebikes. You said you lay them in their side for your Jeep and in the underbelly. Are they in a storage tote or loose? We hope you are enjoying the RV life like us and maybe we’ll see you on the road!

Oh, and also - about your comments about putting padding between the bike halves when folded: We saved a 12' x 12' square of soft white foam packing from each bike box and we use that between the bikes when folding... but I think you could probably go to Home Depot or Lowes and find a soft rubber material to use. I'm thinking of using a pad like that as an underlayment underneath the bikes when underway traveling so they both don't bang up when bouncing around in the storage compartment or in the back of the TOAD.

Sometimes you were unintentionally quite comical... particularly about the color of the bike. I just assumed they're producing the bike in trademark colors. That's just their trademark. But I got a good laugh when you said about your channel colors being black and white. What are you, the newspaper? The hills in Branson... that's actually where I taught my wife about using the L gears on the transmission for going down steep hills. Great information overall.

Yes, I (Kevin) am very aware of what “could” happen if I don’t wear a helmet. I am also aware I can dump a bike and not get hurt at all. I don’t try to persuade others to NOT wear a helmet. I managed to make it to my 40’s without a helmet. I think I’ll be fine and if not, you are more than welcome to give the “told you so” speech. I have the same chance of getting hurt with or without wearing a helmet. Everyone goes to the extreme! Why do most people think that a head injury is all you could possibly get?

I just googled them and you’re right, some if them are out there. It looks like they use the braking system to regen, much like electric cars. But I saw a discussion regarding regen from cycling but it requires a separate drive train. I’m sure Lectric didn’t want to add the extra expense and weight to their existing models but I definitely see applications for that technology for certain users. Thanks for watching!
