      Hi Ron,

      Thank you for your question. The KODA frame is a medium size, 17in.

        Christine I too am 5’5″. Will that work for me?
        Also, is this a Class II (throttle only). If so, what is the range in throttle only mode?
        I also love the new 2015 Epik SE. I am considering one of the two models.

          Hi Brad,

          You should not have too much of a problem with the height. I myself can ride the bike comfortably, and I am not too much taller than you are.

          The KODA comes with both throttle and pedal assist, of which can both be used independently, together, or not at all. The range on throttle-only is about 30 miles.

          OOoh, choosing between the KODA and SE will be a tough one 🙂 The SE is great because of its folding capabilities and may be a little easier for you to ride when it comes to accommodating your height since it is a rather compact bike, but the KODA is brand new and is a very good looking bike for its price point. I suppose it will all depend on what you plan to use your bike for. Let us know if you have any other questions as you work towards a decision on what bike will work best for you.

          Happily and Sincerely,

    Will the Koda ever come in a step through version, or will the Anggun ever come with a 500 watt motor? Also can these handle rain? Thanks, Paul.

      Hi Paul,

      The ANGGUN has seemed to work great with the 350W motor, but there is no telling what will come next. We are constantly making upgrades to our models. The KODA is brand new, so I would not expect to see a step through version in the near future, but like I said..who knows 🙂

      We have a large rider base in Seattle. As you probably know, it rains there quite a bit! As long as the bikes are not submerged in water, they should be ok. Obviously, with any e-bike, it is best to protect the electrical components from getting too wet and to not let the metal rust.

      Happily and Sincerely,

    Hi e-JOE,

    My question is this, I live in the UK, am I able to purchase the Koda here or does one have to ship it over?

    Kind regards,

    Gavin

    I am 6’6″ tall 215lbs. 68 years old and I love the specs, power and look of the KODA but I will need to raise the handlebars up so I can ride in a more upright position to avoid stress on my upper back and neck. Do you have any parts I can buy to increase the height of the handlebars at least 4″ or more? or the diameter of the height extender I would need to buy? or the diameter of the handlebar on the Koda for an adjustable height extender/stem combo? Or a specific recommendation of an adjustable height extender. I would really appreciate your help with this.
    Thanks, Walt

      Hi Walt,

      Thank you for your interest in e-JOE! And great question! You could add an extender, but you likely would not get the 4″ increase you are looking for. The top part of the head tube is connected directly to the handlebar, and there is not much room to extend the height of the stem. This means that you would likely have to change forks to ones that have a longer inner tube that connects the handlebar. A local bike shop may have a better solution or perhaps the same one, but either way, I would encourage you to consult a local bike shop for this type of modification. Your safety is most important to us.

    There are 2 versions of the E-Joe Koda that I’ve seen. One has a box located at the bottom of the seat tube, I assume that is the controler. Another image I’ve seen has no box(controller) at the bottom of the seat post. Which I will add is much sexier than having an ugly black box located in the center of a beautiful blue eBike. My question is which one is the current model being shipped?

      Hi Kaldeem,

      Yes, you would be right. That box is for the controller. The KODA’s that we offer currently have that box. There may be some modifications done to it in the future, but for now there is a box that stores the controller. The KODA offers killer power with a 500w motor for a very good price point. Perhaps you will be able to see past the controller box? 🙂

    Are there any customer video reviews or test rides on Youtube that you can point me to. I’ve been looking for a user review but can’t find anything other than Turbobob and EBR; and I’ve seen those 100 times already.

    Hi E-Joe
    I currently have the 2015 Anggun 3.0 and love it. Its’ my daily commuter 9 miles each way. Quick story: I forgot to charge it one day and had to go back and forth to work 3 times, totaling at least 30 miles and still had a quarter charge left (very little pedaling).

    I do have one question and one suggestion.
    Can the Anggus use a 48 volt battery?
    Suggestion: put hydraulic brakes on this bike.
    I routinely travel at 28 MPH (I will keep my mods secret) on the trails, and feel much safer after switching to TPK HY/RD brakes. And you never have to adjust them.

    Thank You for a great bike!!!
    George

    I’m pretty impressed with what I’m seeing in the Koda reviews and I’ve put in an order for one through Seattle Ebike but it’s been a couple months and the order hasn’t shipped. Do you know if there’s a shortage or factory issue at play? Thank you kindly.

      Hi Aaron,

      Thank you so very much for your kind follow up and for your patience. These ebikes have been flying off our shelves. Our first shipment of them was sold out before the bikes even got to our warehouse in San Diego! Having said that, your bike was shipped about 5 days ago. You may have already received it, and are enjoying the ride as I type this response 🙂

    You should produce a 15″ bike. Normal sized women should be included in your business model.

      Hi Leon,

      Thank you for reaching out to us and submitting your questions. It is not much more difficult to change a rear tire/tube on the KODA than it would be to change a tire on a regular bicycle.

      There are a number of ways to disconnect the bike’s electrical functionality of the KODA. The best way is to make sure the key in the battery is in the “Off” position, or to remove the battery entirely. You can also unplug the wire that leads to the motor so that the motor cannot be engaged at all.

    I’m slightly color-blind but if that bike is anywhere near Pink, you can forget my interest. I’m (like most of your fans) a straight, red-blooded American Male, not some fruit-cake.

      No, I can assure you the KODA is not pink. It is Titanium Gray 🙂
