    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.

Fender rattling fix; loosen all the fender attachment screws and re-tighten them while the fender is centered with the tires. This works almost every time to reduce rattling and may need to be done regularly.

That is an awesome tip! Hopefully others will read your post. If I do another Lectric e-bike video, I’ll try to incorporate that. I’ve just been making the eBike videos when something happens with them or I find something interesting I didn’t know about them. But I think that may just be a good project to do anyway.

Completely disagree with the idea of putting better accessories on and raising the price. There are so many after market lights, locks, seats, etc, that are so much better than what Lectic offers. Keep the pice low and let me add what I want.

Bundling is how they usually jack you as well, as long as generic aftermarket can be assembled to the bike you shouldn't be bundling.

We can see that point. We just think if there’s an accessory that replaces a standard product that you should be able to make that change when ordering instead of paying for the standard accessory in addition to the upgrade accessories. 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.

Nice video, thanks. We just ordered two Step-thrus, mine is due on Monday and my wife's a few days later. At 68 with two knee replacements my cycling days were all but over. Hopefully these will work well for us. I liked the suggestion about a strap of some sort to hold the bike together when folded. We'll probably looked for a nylon velcro strap, which can double as a hold-down for carrying something on the rack. The only extra swe ordered was the lock. The comfort seat and telescoping mount were included with the sale as part of the current promotion. I'm planning on replacing the seat on my old Specialized trail bike with the included seat before I sell it. Really looking forward to using these bikes on our camping trips.

I’ll just mention 2 things I wish the 3.0 was a taller frame as there is a step through, but to be honest the regular one is practically a step through in itself. If you are close to 5’ tall it would feel, and work great in getting a full length extension without having to either raise the seat 2’, and possibly still not be able to achieve proper bicycle form. Also more amps say 14-16amps at 48V. A 52V would be better for sure, but beggars Lol One way to achieve/solve these issues for average, and taller people is mid part of the bike where the battery is at the moment simply make it taller to put in the extra batteries extending the square structure 3-4” higher. That way the seat too is now at a higher part in the back allowing one to raise the seat at a reasonable length Not looking goofy sitting on the bike at anywhere near 6’ providing a decent amount of help to the motor.

Adding extra space for extra batteries would significantly increase the weight. For some that may not be a deal breaker, but for others that would turn them off. In these days of increased fuel prices we see these bikes getting even more popular as people look for alternatives for transportation.

Hey guys. First time seeing you. Thanks for sharing your perspective. My wife and I wear helmets all the time. We use Sena smart helmets with intercom. My wife is a rehab nurse who treats traumatic brain injuries and I’m a firefighter so we err on the side of caution.

Yammee has the I-PAS System - which is supposed to essentially charge the battery during use like you mentioned. I have no idea whether it works well or not, i just have been watching a ton of videos trying to find the right ebike and came across that. I really appreciated your video and to be honest, it is the deciding factor for me. Going to buy it right now!

Simple bungee cords easily hold the bike together when folded. I placed a small folded rug in between the folded sections. Works like a charm to protect the bike paint. My spouse and I are RN’s. We wear helmets.

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.

@N Valles Agreed. Once I finally got my XP I found changing the settings is not the way to go. Instead use a little throttle to get going as well as be in a lower PAS and lower gear. That will give you the smoothest start. Changing the settings results in a sudden lurching motion at start up which isn't so smooth and worse a bit dangerous when you are around pedestrians or cars.

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.

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.

@Eric V that was good information and it made sense. I (Kevin) could understand that more than some of the stuff I was reading. Thank you so much for that. I may pick your brain later on down the road. I want to sell my Lectric and move to the Rad Mini foldable.

@Compass Roadz You need a completely different drive system. The RAD POWER City/4 & earlier models (not the new /5+ model) have a direct drive motor which supports regenerative braking (battery charging while braking). I own a Rad City/3 and love it. The costs of direct drive motors are three fold: 1. Only 40n of torque vs. 80n with a geared hub motor such as used by RAD City /5+ today (I believe your Lectric's have 60n geared hub motors). 2. They are harder to pedal w/o assist, as they are generators. You are pushing against the magnetism of embedded rare earth magnets 3. Direct Drive motors are larger and heavier than geared hub motors. Positives of direct drive motors: 1. Regenerative breaking (charging while braking). 2. Quieter than geared hub motors 3. More reliable / last longer than geared hub motors. Geared hub motors have three planetary gears that transfer the motor power to the wheel, which is one reason for the increased torque over DD motors. Those gears are more noisy, tend to be plastic - and they will wear out over time (and can be replaced). RAD POWER used to use DD drive motors for both the RAD City and RAD Wagon models. Both have moved to geared hub motors for the increased power and torque. RAD decided the small charging capability and better reliability of a DD motor was not worth the trade off of torque. Standardizing on geared hub motors across their newer models may have made sense for RAD Power Bikes financially as well, in terms of parts stocking and purchasing ($$).

You and Lectric are both wrong for the idea of just "swapping out the seats when you upgrade before it ships". Most people have said they would like the original seat as well. Why? Because the seats work on different bikes. If I upgrade my bike or sell it, I can take the seat to the next one. Same with add on mirrors, racks, etc...

3 месяца назад

One could always swap the seat from the new bike to the old bike and vice versa. Unless you upgrade to a bike with no seat. If you watched the entire video you would know that we are full-time RV’ers so space and weight are valuable. We can’t keep things we don’t use. Thank you for the comment and for watching.

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.

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.

While I would also hate throwing away a garbage seat, and I appreciate that you shared your complaints, I don't agree with the early gripes in this video. I'm not sure you guys understand the busness side of this sort of thing. Every option you add, and every choice you let the customer make, costs the company money. For example, they don't ship the crappy original seat along with the superior seat because they like it when you throw things away. They ship both because it is cheaper to let you throw one away than it is to change their shipping process to accomodate different orders, even if they get to reuse the original seat. That sucks, but it lowers the price. They ship it with a worse light because many riders don't need anything better. I don't ride bikes in the dark, like, ever. Other people use these exclusively in the city, where street lights take care of most lighting problems. If I planned on taking this camping, and doing a lot of night riding, then I might consider a better light. That will probably never happen. Long story short, you kept saying you'd spend more to get higher quality stuff and customisable orders. You can already do that. There are more expensive bikes on the market. Go buy those. If you order the cheap one, you get the cheap one. That isn't a bug, it's a feature.

Thanks for that insight. You are absolutely correct on the business model for the retailer and we did not really step out of our RV lifestyle to even consider factors that sticks and bricks lifestyle have to their advantage. We chose Lectric because it’s very popular among the RV community and because of its fold ability easier to carry when we are on the move. Now that we’ve had them awhile, and for notable points you and others have made to include our experiences, we are considering selling one of ours and trying another brand. But we will see and share in a future video if we do. Thanks for watching!

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 $$$.

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.

@Iver Mec-Tin I get about 22 miles on a single charge (one battery) staying in pas 3 - 5 and maybe throttle 60 percent of the time. There's a 3/4 mile long hill in front of where I live. I can go up it ~14 mph sitting down. I can go down it at ~38 mph.

@Scott Kennon Yes, 100 miles is the theoretical limit. I would expect that you could achieve this on flat ground with zero throttle use in Pas 1. 50 miles should be the theoretical minimum on the XPremium. Because it does not use cadence sensing it cannot be used in a throttle only mode, as the Lectric hub motor bikes can. On the XPremium, if you don't pedal, you don't get any motorized assistance, if I am understanding correctly. That makes a comparison of mid drive and hub drive practically impossible.

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.

Yep. The *safety* part of a helmet doesn't necessarily mean protecting your head from a crash situation. The helmets are kind of designed like a baseball hat; they have a brim that helps keep the sun out of your eyes. Maybe that's where some people get confused when they say it blocks their vision. Personally, I don't need to be looking at the sun. Bicycle helmets are also vented so not only do the keep the sun off your head but they allow a breeze. And lastly, I mount a rear view mirror to my helmet so I can see what's approaching from behind. I think it's better than a mirror on the bike because the helmet is with me no matter what bike I'm riding. Now there are those that don't care if the sun is in their eyes, their head is burning or having a need to know what's going around them. Their choice. Or maybe they're just not aware there are some obvious advantages to wearing a helmet besides keeping your skull from cracking like an egg.

Yes there are advantages beyond the crash situation of a helmet. We wear helmets depending on our terrain and surroundings. That being we still go helmetless about 75% of the time.

@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.

It would probably take about thirty hours of cycling to charge the battery half way. The most amount of electricity a typical person could generate continuously is around 100 watts. But the conversion to battery charge would only be about 30 percent at best. So regenerative charging on an e-bike doesn't make much sense. What might be better would be a little tiny propane generator, lol.

@Compass Roadz The XP Lite was tempting. But I just ordered a pair of XP 2.0. I chose that model because they are a little heavier and probably will do better for my wife and I. I was concerned about 500w not being enough and 375w is probably too small. The Lite model looks good for teens and young adults. Update: we've had the bikes a few weeks now, so much fun. My wife and I have been tearing up the little village we live in. We bought them to visit state parks this summer. We can only handle about a forty-five minute ride right now, numb hands and cranky buttocks lol. But we are working our way up. Anyway the bikes are a blast. I even tried the Class 3 setting, too fast. My wife says, "I haven't ridden a bike in 7 years and didn't expect to enjoy it so much". I'm thankful because that's was a boatload of cash for the bikes and all the accessories.

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!

You can do both. On the bike there is a port with a little rubber cover you can remove to plug the charger into the battery. If you remove the battery and bring it indoors to charge, the port that is normally covered with that rubber cover when battery is installed is what you plug the charger into if battery is removed. The charger light will turn green when battery is fully charged regardless of which charging method you use. However, we do recommend not leaving the battery plugged in to charge unattended. Just our preference. We never leave them to charge overnight while we sleep. Thanks for the idea we will do a short video on this. Thanks for your question and for watching.

Mine right out of the box was TERRIBLE, squeaking, brakes yelling, the disc adjustable screw on back tire installed wrong and I cant access. $1200 spent bike looks great but embarrassing to ride around with those noises. Would i buy again? NO. The company said 100 miles to break it in and see if noises are gone, sorry buy when i buy a car or anything else over $1k i want perfect out the box. I was very excited about the purchase but not anymore

Wow! Have you reached out to Lectric about the problems? I know they don’t have a favorable return policy but hopefully with their 1 year warranty they would have someone look and fix the problem. Please let us know if they help at all or if the noises go away with use. Thanks for watching.

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!

You’re the first one to notice. We were filming that shot in our campground. We filmed in a slow part of the day where we didn’t have any traffic to worry about. But yes, at a stop sign we should stop and look both ways before proceeding according to traffic laws!

That is a great idea for the next iteration of this bike. Kevin said he would like to see different wheels offered as well.
