I continued to have issues with the rear brakes. The rear disc brake was bending when I braked and I could not figure out how to get it from rubbing on the pads. I eventually took the bike over to REI and paid for a tune-up. Fantastic work by them, the bike has a better top speed by a couple mph now and shifting/braking are much smoother. I was also having issues with the chain jumping off the front derailleur on high torque (high gear from standstill). Looks like I just needed the experts to give it the tune.

“The Ancheer Power Plus is a really nice e-bike.  It rides well and has lots of goodies including LED lights and a nice electric horn.  I like that it is pedal assist – all you have to do is set it to how much pedal assist you want and it does the rest without having to turn the throttle.  The only thing I found and maybe I’m missing something is that when the bike is folded there doesn’t appear to be a clasp which makes it difficult to carry.”
After 17 hours of research and 23 hours of testing on over 40 different electric bicycle models on the market today, we are very happy to announce that the Elby 9-Speed Electric Bike is the top electric bike for 2019. It’s on the higher end of the price tag, but it has all of the features, as well as a great range, great motor, battery, build quality and speed. Our #1 pick soared past the Merax 26” Aluminum Electric Mountain Bike (our #2 pick), thanks to its insane range, better battery, and more powerful electric motor. It’s a reliable choice as the best electric bike for commuters and the company just threw everything they had into it. Despite an expensive price, we had to include it and hold it up as the measuring stick that all other bikes should aspire to.
Maintenance is relatively easy if you can get past the bad instructions and perform regular service on your bike. The Ancheer Power Plus has as numerous safety features, a long battery range and enough speed to get you there fast. Running cost is literally pennies a day with the charge anywhere battery and if you run out of power you can still peddle your way home.
