I was up at Aviemore last September and borrowed the Scott E-Spark from Bothy Bikes and within an hr i returned to the shop with a stupid goofy grin on my face and ordered the Scott E-Genuis 710+, i had to wait 4 months till they were released but David got me one of the first to arrive and i drove up to collect it the following week, i’ve not regretted buying it for one second 😀 .
The RideControl Evo display features a button control on the grip and a readout on the stem, giving you control over ride time, distance and cadence. Best of all, it gives you as very accurate percentage readout of how much battery is remaining, so no excuses for running out of juice! The five rides mode are Eco, Basic, Active, Sport and Power and there’s also a walk assist button.
So whether you want to achieve physical fitness or just want to avoid daily traffic to work or school, the Ancheer Power Plus has got you covered. But of course, if you want to achieve maximum benefit out it as a workout tool, you will have to do more of the peddling than cruising. It also offers a convenient alternative when you want to hit the rough terrain or long distances where peddling all the way is not an option.
Ancheer specialise in a range of electrical and non electrical products, from simple trampolines to some high tech electric mountain bikes. All their products follow a theme of being reasonably well made and being on the lower end of the price range. Today we’ll look at and review the Ancheer Folding Electric Mountain bike. We’ve gathered all the information you need to help you decide whether it’s the right e-bike for you.
Before this test we thought more travel on an e-bike would obviously be better. After all, with the motor flattening out the climbs, why not have the extra suspension firepower to smooth out the descents? Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? But in the case of the Specialized Turbo Kenevo Expert, the extra travel and weight make the bike less effective and less engaging on all but full-on downhill tracks. And if that’s your bread and butter, the Kenevo could well be the perfect topping. Here in the UK though, the Vitus proved more versatile, just as capable and way better value.
For every post we write we have done hours of research and have had as much hands on experience with the product as possible. Our aim is to get a complete understanding of the item(s) we’re testing, but if we have any doubts or queries we have no hesitation in going straight to the manufacturer for information that might not be readily available to you, the customer.

It was easy, good tools were shipped with the bike. The instructions are nearly useless, though. Like other reviews state, the front fork is backwards in the picture and shipped backwards. The disk brake should be on the port/left side. Flip the handlebar clasp around and leave the dirt guard facing forward. All the cables should flow naturally this way. Pedals were ok to put on, one of the pedals took a minute to get threaded but eventually got tightened.
Foldable – When you are not using the bike and want to store it at home, or want to carry it around, it can be folded up. This helps in saving a lot of space in your garage and also in the vehicle you are traveling in. now you don’t have to worry about bringing the bike back with you, just because you ran into a friend and want to hitch a ride in their car.

Bosch’s flagship mountain bike system uses a mini drive ring with internal gearing to send its power to the drivetrain. There’s some resistance in the system over 25km/h, but when you first press down on the pedals there’s an impressive surge of power, and it offers good support over a wide cadence range. Its size has an impact on the width of the cranks (the Q-factor) as well as the chainstay length of the frame, and it’s not the lightest system on the market at 4kg for the motor. On the other hand, Bosch is the most established player on the market, and its system has proven itself over many years.
I’m sure the can of worms has already been opened on this subject… Oh it’s motor bike blah blah they should be banned, is this whining mostly from strava whippets who’s times might be beaten? I raced motocross for 12 years & they are motorcycles with a internal combustion engine and yes they do make a mess of the country side but on land that has been allowed & nowadays has planning permission to be used for such events.
It's a basically a complete redesign so this is a 29er it's got a 500 watt hour internal battery it's based on the Shimano platform the really good Shimano motor the 8,000 motor which is not brand new but it's been out and it's tried and tested a lot of manufacturers are using that one what comments are saying is that they've been able to distribute the weight over a wider portion of the frame they've kept the center of gravity low they use in a long shock with a really large stroke so they can vary the progressiveness of the suspension and they're saying the bike feels dynamic easy to move it's got a really good feeling and really great suspension platform
The fit is a little rough for me. I'm tall, about 73 inches, and I feel like the bike is small. I've ridden a few dozen miles to include a trip with a kids trailer towed behind, and it hasn't been really uncomfortable, but a little cramped compared to my Schwinn Trailway 28"/700c hybrid bike. Seat adjusts up but feels tilted back a little more than I would like. I have ridden in shorts and tshirt to the beach as well as khakis and a button up with backpack to work, ok comfort both ways. Perhaps it will just take some time to get used to.

Meter with 3-speed smart buttons: The speed button helps you to choose how first you want to go. The bike is by default at ‘’low’’ level. To increase the peddle assist level, press the ‘’+’’ and you will switch from low, to mid or high. “High” is the maximum level that will provide fast speed while pedaling, and to decrease speed level you need to press the ‘’-” button. The ’-” can also be used to eliminate the three pedal assist levels and switch into pure E-bike where you are only required twist the throttle as you cruise all the way. 

The Ancheer Folding Electric Bike is a great product at a great price. It’s pretty good looking, despite the slightly cumbersome battery pack attached to the frame. It has a wide range of features, is very easy to use and comes mostly assembled. The ability to fold it down for easy transport and storage just adds to the versatility and practicality that the bike already has. Ancheer are also said to have a great customer service team if there are any problems. Best of all you get all of this for way less than a $1000. Most quality e-bikes now a days will easily set you back $1000, sometimes several times more.

This is a good electric bike with all the features that you could ever desire from your model. It is affordable, high tech savvy and can accommodate a range of different body heights and shapes owing to its clever design and strong frame. Therefore, it really is very versatile. You don’t have to be a pro biker to purchase it, as it can be just as fun to ride around town or cycle out on your daily commute.

This bike is absolutely great. I will gladly give it a 10 star if possible. However, one piece of advice for any intending buyer; make sure you dry the battery terminals after washing your bike. The bike will not power up once there is moisture at those interface.I have experienced this a few times over the last two months I've had my e-bike. It is annoying when you only find out, at the time you are rushing off to work.

As I said before, going up hills might require some pedaling, but it is SO MUCH EASIER with the motor running. I feel like a higher voltage is used on level 3 pedal assist than can be gotten just using the hand turn, though. It takes a few pedals for the pedal assist to kick in which can be annoying, but it does save some battery on initial acceleration. You also have to be careful pedaling around to park the bike or at a street corner waiting for traffic because you DO NOT want the motor to kick in and send you into a workbench or worse ... oncoming traffic.


What i’d really like is the ability to custom tune the standard speed settings with regard to the torque curve/output and perhaps have a top speed of 18mph or thereabouts, back when i could ride a normal bike under my own steam there were some sections of my local trails where i could easily maintain 20mph+ through the single track (allowing for acceleration out of the corners) as it was on a slight fall line. It’s all brain-farts at the moment so the tuning kit is still in my toolbox and it may stay in there.

Meeting at University whilst studying Electronic and Electrical Engineering, we realised that we were both active individuals with a shared interest in outdoor sports and anything with two wheels. Combining our engineering knowledge and our years of experience with skateboards, scooters, bikes and more, we feel that we’re in a great position to test and understand these products and provide you with an unbiased, accurate source of information. 
The 250 W motor may seem a little on the small side but it’s quite capable. It gives a top speed of almost 16 mph without any form of pedalling. The acceleration is decent, aided by the low weight of the bike. However, it can’t really compete with bikes that have 500 W or higher motors. These do tend to cost more than the $1000 mark though. The battery is said to give it about 30 miles maximum range when in assistive mode. The battery is able to fully charge in 4-6 hours.
Rented a pretty decent Scott. Did some nice mixed terrain but only for a day. Firstly it was great fun. Hard to get away from that. The pedalling felt good. It was like everything was a slight downhill. You can pootle or give it a few hard pedals and fly along at any time. On the flat, uphill, on bumpy grass, all felt like downs once you pedaled a lttle. Good connection between the pedalling and the movement. Smooth delivery. It just took the terrain and slope out of the equation. Could’ve easily got away with less power. It would be an expensive buy. This one was 3.5k but kitted out like a £500 halfords special. Once the price comes down they will be everywhere.
Last year, the Trek Powerfly 9 LT was one of the only ebikes with geometry and handling that came close to a modern enduro bike. For 2018, Trek has built on that winning formula with new frame. It’s lowered the battery in the downtube, while adding a stiffer Fox 36 fork, more powerful SRAM RE brakes and a stronger Bontrager wheelset. All welcome improvements to a really capable bike. The price has also crept up to reflect the changes. The biggest transformation however, is that Rocky Mountain has raised the ebike bar to a new high with the Altitude Powerplay.
Chip them, & your asking for a world of potential legal trouble if your evolved in an accident & giving fuel to those ppl frothing at the mouth for (all) MTB’s to be banned from share trails. That said if it’s chipped it shouldn’t be on legal MTB trails, as there classed as basically motorbikes (very simple overview), so suggesting you only use the ‘dongle’ off-road argument falls flat on its face

It is a nice bike for the money, it has some nice features. However the instructions did not fit the bike model. The given web sites noted in the instructions did not work. Went online and had to visit several other sites to get the instructions for this bike. No one site fit the bike. Very fustrating. It would be nice if the throttle also worked with the other modes. Seat is very uncomfortable. I will change that. Bike was not well packaged. I was glad to see bike was not damaged in shipment.

Weight isn’t anything like a critical as one would assume. Weight distribution however is a different matter and this is where geometry, specifically the ratio of the front centre measurement to the chain stay length really comes into play. Battery placement is important too, and smaller batteries give an edge in the handling stakes while robbing the bike of range.


UPS delivered one day later than the expected delivery date. It was a little frustrating, but one day is just one day, so can't be all too upset. Box arrived in good condition. Inside the box, the bike seemed to be packaged well but there were issues. The left gear shift handle was snapped off. Homdox was notified and they said they would send a new one (handle, gear shift, bike.... not sure, assuming a new gear shift).

The gears don't seem to keep up on this bike. There are 21 gears, same as my other bike, but there is much more resistance at the highest gear on my other bike going 20mph than there is on this bike. The reason that is an issue is that during pedal assist, the bike goes pretty quick and I don't want to be pedaling air, I want some, just a little, resistance. I don't know the mechanics of it or how this would be the case, perhaps because this bike has smaller wheels than my other bike? The bike came pretty well adjusted on the derailleurs. I haven't touched the back but the front I've had to mess with a little. The chain fell off outboard once, so had to adjust. Chain guard did its job well. The chain got stuck pretty good, but once I loosed the chain guard everything was easily moved.
Had my first crash on this bike. Right at the 500 mile mark mid-November. Sand had blown all over the bike path and I took it too fast. The bike did ok, but when I picked it back up the motor wouldn't work. I pedaled the rest of my commute and got a ride home. I suspected (and was correct) that the left brake lever was bent and the motor was not able to engage because it thought I was braking. I was nervous muscling it back, but it wasn't bent too bad. So that's what I did. And I also took the time to replace both wheels, inner-tubes, and give the bike a cleaning. The front wheel was still ok on tread but the back wheel tread was completely gone. Changing the front wheel was easy. The back wheel was more challenging because the motor cables and disc brakes. Ended up leaving the wheel on the bike and just moving it slightly to get the tube and wheel in place. Ended up just being more annoying than difficult. The chain cleaned up nice with some Simple Green. I haven't ridden on the commute nearly as much with me feeling a little more cautious and it getting dark so early (I don't need to wipe out in the bike lane into traffic...) All is well though. Have had zero issues with the motor since bending the brake back to its (or close to its) rightful position.

what is the king of the mountains is it a heavyweight hard hitting a mountain bike or is it something skinny light and tight Chris Oh P ah and the gravel bike this is a MTB versus gravel [Music] Chris there has been some king-sized talk of these gravel bikes in recent months they've been heralded as the new great all-rounder enabling you to do everything from tarmac rows to gravel rows to fire roads to single track but ultimately I just see people riding these done badly maintained roads the kind of finding I have little Los Angeles or somewhere yeah all right here in Mid Wales and the Black Mountains I think you've underestimated just how capable these machines are today I borrowed an old bayit era from Sai over on GCN and it's got 40 mil gravel tires on it terror speed tires we've also got hydraulic disks something which all bites should have really funny we've got SRAM for skiers 22 speed wireless shifting no cables to snag and it looks just sleek I reckon super slack head angle 70 degrees you do like your head angles in here well this I mean it's worth mentioning and you did say that it was a flying machine that would tear my time apart yeah I might be eating those words later it's a gravel bite but it's basically a row bike adapted to write off-road isn't it yeah well my bike also has fancy carbon fibre and disc brakes however it has rims and wheels and tires that actually in the 21st century not the 20th century but not only that it has 150 ml travel but crucially it has that long range 700 watt hour battery and that motor which is going to get me up those punchy climbs but the bottom line is if you go in the mountains right you should have a mountain bike not a city bike I need this before you go you do this with yours Oh crikey weights how much is that seven point eight kilo Steve crikey 20 you even lift yours 20 so I checked out the route that you sent me Steve mm 275 meters of climbing and descending 16 miles which doesn't sound like a lot considering it says it's gonna take us three hours to complete and as much as I do fancy doing a three hour time jar I've always wanted to do and enduro style stage race so I think we should break the root down into little stages and race those instead little bit hard stages Chris and I think it's got all that so why not let's let's do that but you will not have read the small print of my script it says that this bike will be unsure of its own bility honest identity in a land that is really made for this there are literally sheep as far as the eye can see and as far as your ears can hear I've never seen so many of them right do then Chris let's start where both of us are equally comfortable on the tarmac and next to a pub the red lie and free house and home cooking well Chris I reckon this is going to be the part where you've got free speed first part of the journey is largely tarmac for I reckon about 20 minutes on my bike with my super tacky tires and big valen tires whereas you've got super skinny yeah full like aerodynamic see I reckon it's gonna be near a 15 for me sleeve because this it doesn't really weigh any more than my normal row bike anyway yeah normally one what's he got in those are these legs 1600 watts admittedly only for a few seconds at a time I reckon Steen hundred watts yeah well I had a misspent youth on a bike the night coley I mean I've got so I've got 250 watts average but it does peak at about 5 to 600 but I think that's gonna yeah it's not bad it's not 1,600 the only thing that worries me is you've got 90 new means a talk yeah I happen to know that 90 new me is a talk is pretty much the best I've ever done for 6 minutes let's crack on the tarmac stage [Music] [Applause] [Applause] [Music] that's ridiculous [Music] looking fast e o worryingly o gotta say were you chasing the Sheep there or the fastest stage time whatever way I chose thank you and the Sheep unless I would say that it's an unexpected obstacle I know you promised we would see some sheep yeah I've got to say one thing I do agree the 25 kilometers an hour restriction can be the hindrance if you are racing a mountain bikes but we're not racing most of the time except for today and trying to keep it just on the twenty five K's was really really physical yeah because if you go beyond the 25k you're actually into no-man's land where you put in a huge amount of effort into a 20 kilobyte because a 90 kilo rider and I ain't chasing an 80 kilo rider on a lightweight skinny bike yeah and so my strategy knowing that you could only do twenty five K's now with assistance strategy yeah yeah fat loss thoughts the Steve it's important to me that I win I tried to get 26 K so now the entire time right bye I promise that was equally tough because it wasn't as flat as you made it out to me so the scores and does what you reckon on the first run I reckon you've got that by a considerable margin yeah I mean I'm not our breath anymore which kind of implies I might have the edge there however this is where we transition from tarmac to gravel and that being a gravel bike it should now be in your element run to a farm track bit of a punchy climb that's what's got me worried because actually in the start of there on the road segment you weren't that far behind me I did push a little bit too hard but I'm now worried that if you can maintain anything like that going up there I'm gonna be I'm gonna be suffering there's only one way to find out [Music] [Music] yeah Oh Steve hmm looking good you've been here that long you've got a mistake was that gravel enough for you I'm a little bit disappointed you just disappeared well there is there is a tipping point isn't there where an e-minor bike becomes faster than the gravel bike and vice versa and I think we're such a short way into this journey we've yet to find out that tipping point it's made me nervous for the rest of the race that's for sure well I suggest we get now on to that open mountain where it's a mixture of smooth single track and bog [Music] [Music] Wow - gets bigger every time I see Steve as the years roll by oh I started in poetry I'm really ya know yeah yeah but I'll give you everything I mean five minutes between friends what's that that's nothing our relationship stepped up a level I didn't realize we were friends now that's nice that's a start but you know I kept with the end of the day I put maximum effort into that yeah you've certainly did for Maxim over at the what's yeah are you serious three five seven that's I mean I to golf at one point right Bogg yeah but look we're honest - with three stages in right yeah I'm sure you might going to be pulling back some time on this next section speed bank Iraq and I can stay on the bike longer than you can because if what your angles they're all wrong Steve okay I've got a little secret something up my sleeve for later like I said little secret something on my lip yeah it's better than that he's gonna have to because you're way behind Stage four we are starting by you to buy their that walk around the mountain kind of and it starts with a super punchy climb let's go [Music] [Music] [Music] start to stage stuff mistakes why right what a horny mother hell so we've come 2,000 feet up a mountain on natural terrain and then there is this you have oh well if you're wondering why looking so tired I was up here last night with the wheelbarrow and a shovel that is just ridiculous we're not even at my secret weapon yet Steve right what's that [Applause] [Music] you know I said earlier that we're gonna go from over here to over there well there's over there there look you barely see it you can barely see it mine so gravel gravel is your friend momentum is your friend yeah and I think you definitely had an advantage in that state you're here fact that's actually the first time I've ever used a grab a bike on gravel attack and to be really honest I'm still a little bit dubious where these things really felt really good Wow oh you're fast I cannot believe how you go up that last climb momentum Steven that's ridiculous momentum but Chris I think you will find that now we start mountain biking we've still not be man biking it no oh cool and I've still got my secret weapon what the penultimate stage I think you'll find this is proper mountain bike single track race finally I've been looking forward to this one Steve after you no no actually after you I'd like you to show me through the lines through this top section really yeah please yeah okay right see you at the bar you will are you doing nah I'm known to Steve James this is where my little secret weapon comes into play I've spotted on the maps earlier the smoothest fastest that can gravel track down this man no chance [Music] and wonderin if Opie is underestimated the potential of an e mounted bike across rough terrain I'll be looking at the track which runs parallel to us which is a really fast fire road and I can't see them I am not seeing behind us or ahead of us so either there are miles ahead or miles behind [Music] what what no here is no where have you been oh well tell you what as moorland crossing goes that was epic yeah accompanied you went down the fire out I I have never ever gone that fast off road before that was insanely fast air win downhill smoothest surface you can imagine how you kidding me well worthless shortcut Oh what it's time it's time please tell me you washed in stuff I never minute no it wasn't no he was not 17:55 yes that's those magic five minutes I've been looking for and the fairies that is epic that's a guy that's exactly what I expect out of a pro sprint cyclist so many cases now don't know get out of here no no honestly I'd really surprised that well fair dues so you've been talking up this last ascent all day well here we go here is the lastest ham three - what go buy domain [Music] [Music] [Music] that was mega which everywhere you look at it best one of the day that final one gravel or mountain bike seriously I think maybe on that one a man boy would have been better well I tell you what I'm surprised that your 1980s mountain biker drop handlebars actually perform pretty well I think it did help that I go out riding them I'm I think you and more fun Steve do you think so I can't believe how fast you going down those last two cents because I can go any slower I think I think you know what happened today does not surprise me in the least and I think these bikes are really so good when it comes to gravel rows and I keep telling people who who win do better 25k restriction on these bikes if you're gonna go faster on roads or fire roads get yourself a gravel bike okay how fast you see you even 7:00 tomorrow I don't know that's only Kaizen our my gravel road which fell pretty fast to be fair yeah yeah there was a lot of time where you are over that $25 an hour limit yeah but only on the gravel roads yeah then you'd probably never think to take that on a gravel road and I tell you what though that gravel rule you did I was bog trying and that bike is a pretty accomplished bog Trotter I guess hell yeah even though I was slower I think you'd have find it very very difficult to ridden that bike I honestly think I would've been running what was your final time my fault I'm I'm quite proud of it because I feel confident 1 hour 7 and 11 seconds wait to the old Persia to go past my time 1 hour 6 minutes 28 seconds but it was it was it it was a story of profit and loss right yes absolutely all through the day and like I said we've repeated again that bike was absolutely lightning Dan fire road yeah obviously the Reuter was - yes he did I think if we did go into more challenging technical terrain that's like with probably fell away yeah and it did that like you have more fun but you disappeared on a couple of those descents and even some of the technical climbs actually where you had traction and I didn't yeah but disappearing and is disappearing like at high speed but a great day out on two great bikes and the story take out let's say your thoughts on a mountain bike versus ground by Chris and a great day on eighth day thank you very much got the red line really close to us we can go there in a minute Leslie thoughts of the video and you can see more epic rides have a look at what me and Hannah Barnes did on the Noida Peninsula in Scotland over here and also the Lake District epic with Adam Brayton and meantime just click on the globe to subscribe and get even more email and bike videos a thumbs up yes with you I'm looking forward to that next challenge I amaz off next week game on
