2015 EPIK SE

2015 EPIK SE

    You list the bike as a 2015 and then state in the opening sentence, new for 2014 — makes it a little confusing — just a thought.. Love the bike.

      Hi Scott,

      There are a couple locations that you should be able to put a water bottle on the SE. One is on the handlebar. You also may be able to put one on the curved part of the frame. I have emailed you pictures of both locations on the bike. With the pictures, you should be able to determine which type of water bottle holder that would best accommodate the SE.

      The sky blue color has just been introduced for the SE. There should now be some pictures of it on our website. The dark navy blue you probably thought you were seeing is actually matte black.

      Hi Brandon,

      You can certainly purchase a spare battery. You can purchase one from any of our brick and mortar dealers or online dealers. We do not have an established MSRP, but the price usually falls in the $400 range for an EPIK SE battery.

      Hi Louis,

      At this time, unfortunately, we do not sell speedometers for the SE. They come with a simpler display. The ANGGUN and KODA come with speedometers, though. I am sure you could find a cheap alternative to track distance and speed using separate hardware.

        I plan to install a nice wireless multiple function speedometer on my new SE. Only about 20 bucks from Amazon. The rub is that the computer read out must be less than 60 cm from the sender. What I did on another folder was mount the read out on the horizontal tube that holds the battery. Worked great. Might have to combine a couple of cable ties to reach around.

      Hi Jim,

      Thank you for your question and for checking out our website. The folded dimensions of the EPIK SE are approximately 34x17x24 inches (LxWxH), perfect for fitting in a car or RV 🙂

    Could you explain the “3 level pedal assist” and the “throttle/PAS mode switch” please. Thanks

    Reply
    • September 11, 2015 at 3:05 am
      Permalink

      Hi Jim,

      Absolutely. The 3 level pedal assist corresponds to the amount of power you want to apply to the motor when you reach a certain RPM as you pedal. This essentially corresponds to the speed, 1 being the slowest and 3 being the fastest assist levels. You can adjust throttle assist on a 1 to 3 scale in the same way on the LED screen but would press the thumb throttle to engage the motor. The control system (the brain) of the bike is smart enough to allow you to switch between using pedal assist only, throttle only, both, or to not assist at all as if you were riding a regular bicycle. This is what is meant by “throttle/PAS mode switch.”

      Hi Randy,

      The SE would be perfect for that, especially if you use multiple modes of transportation. The range you would get does depend on your weight, but it also depends on how much motor assist you plan on using. The more you pedal, the longer the range. It also depends on which power setting, low, medium, or high, that you use as well. If you were to pedal along with the bike and used pedal assist mode on the lowest power setting, you would probably see anywhere between 20 to 30 mile range. If you used the mid to high levels consistently and did not do much pedaling, you might see between a 15 and 25 mile range. Hope that helps!

    For the model SE 2015, the manual says to turn the key to the ON position for riding and be sure to turn it OFF when not riding. As far as I can tell, the key only locks the battery. Changing the key position does not prevent one from turning on the electronics with the control button. This is particularly concerning because you could not prevent your bike from being switched on when parked in a public place without removing the battery. What am I missing here?

    I wondered what the top speed might be in the top gear (7) with the peddle rpm say, 90? Neglecting the motor power. Based on another bike I ride, I would guess 20 mph but I don’t know what the actual ratios are.

      Hi Ed,

      It would be tough to say what the top speed would be on 7th gear without assist. 20mph is the top speed with just assist, as this is what the law requires as the max speed for the bikes to be street legal. I am sure you could probably travel faster than 20 even without assist. Let us know what you find 🙂

      What a fun family activity! The new 2016 models have not been released yet, but it will be at least a couple months. Our Black Friday weekend sale will be entertained by all of our dealers, though they may not all have the same discount. Definitely check your local dealer by plugging in your zip code above the map at http://www.ejoebike.com/dealers or taking a look at one of the online dealers listed as well.

      Hi Natasha,

      Great question. Because we have many dealerships by the coast, I would venture to say that someone along the way has tried riding our bikes on sand 🙂 Riding on wet sand should be no problem. After riding through sand, you would want to clean off any sediment that remains on your bike, of course. Other than normal upkeep, you could treat the bike like any regular, non-electric bike. You just want to make sure the electronics are not disrupted in any way.

    I haven’t seen a video of anyone removing the battery from the Epic SE for charging. I know it’s possible but does the bike need to be folded first? And if so how easy is it to pull out? I would need to remove it for charging at each end of my 10 mile commute so for me ease of removal is paramount.
    Also, most of my commute is on maintained forest roads, firm gravel, compacted dirt, but sometimes bumpy. Problem?
    Thanks…

      Hi Karin, yes you need to fold the bike to take out the battery. The battery is inside the tube. It’s easy to pull out, there is a handle on the battery. Bumpy road shouldn’t be a problem. Check your loacl dealer to try one out or you can get the bike from shopebike.com, our authorized online dealer
