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.
We think that the Ancheer Folding Electric Mountain Bike looks (mostly) great. The frame is finished very well and the wheel are striking. The only complaint we have with the looks and the overall design is how they decided to implement the battery pack. The little pouch at the front looks out of place and can feel a bit cumbersome. We would have liked if they could have potentially attached it, or better yet integrated it into the horizontal part of the main frame. I understand the difficulties of doing this as the bike has the folding mechanism but it would have been nice if they’d have managed it.

The frame is solid. In fact too solid for me. The frame is thick with such a girth that my rear wheel bike rack doesn't fit (around the frame or into the pre-drilled holes because the disk brake is in the way). Shocks seem to work fine. I do enjoy having the kick stand further back, provides a lot more stabilization to the bike vice being closer to the pedals.

A few days after receiving the bike I received an email from Homdox asking if everything arrived ok and how the bike was working out. I let them know about the broken handle on the gear shift and sent them pictures. They replied on the first business day that followed stating they'd send a replacement. So... impressions right now are good. Hopefully the part arrives quickly and is in fact the right part.
If you really want to see the future take a look at the Fazua Evation, with a battery and motor this system weighs an incredible 4.7kg! The battery only has 250wh, but at 1.3kg you could easily carry a spare in a pack. The really interesting thing about this system though, is the motor and the battery can be removed from the frame, so you really do have two bikes in one.
I have had my new e bike for about 5 weeks now and covered over 500 miles, it has been an absolute joy - you still get plenty of exercise but in a much more pleasant way than with an ordinary bike, it takes hills in its stride and the ride is very stable and inspires confidence even over rough country roads, the front suspension helps a lot in this respect also the bike is equipped with dual disk brakes. I have fitted mudguards back and front - I had to modify the stays on the front ones by making a right angle bend in them so that they could be attached to the forks, it has proved well worthwhile fitting the mudguards. I have used all assist levels and you can always step to a higher level if the need arises. I can highly recommend this bike and it is my opinion that it would be difficult to find a better e bike for the money - many more expensive machines offer less specification!
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.
Merida has done an amazing job with the EOne-Sixty 900E. It has a fun, playfully ride quality that few ebikes can match, and the price is simply unbeatable. It’s also the only sub 50lb bike in this test, and that’s without a single strand of carbon. It could be even better though. With a two degree slacker head angle and a little more power from the Shimano motor the EOne-Sixty would be able to keep up on the climbs, only to drop the competition on every descent. The biggest issue though, is actually getting hold of one.

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
