Nice upgrades! A far cry from the original 250 watt Bali.Yes they are alive and kicking.
Wayne Hui, the proprietor of EG, just returned from China last week. There are some major upgrades to the 2015 lineup.
The motor has been updated to 500W geared Dapu (the ones used in Pedego Interceptor, City Commuter, Easy Motion Neo Cross) and the battery has been upgraded to 48V, 10Ah Samsung. Here is a sneak peak for you.
We will have the 2015 stock in a few weeks and feel free to reach out if you need to know anything.

Thanks for answering so quickly, Lenny! Maybe you should consider changing your name to fast and crazy Lenny!
I Googled you and I see that you are in Madison, Wisconsin! Being that I am in Denver, I probably need to find somewhere closer for service!
One of the appeals of the EG line is the low price... I hope the upgrades don't push it up too far.
If anyone reading this has a Colorado connection for EG, please let me know! Thanks!
I don't think there would be a problem for any large bike shop to service an e bike. Most bike shops can work on all of the serviceable components on an ebike.Ah, I have zero mechanical ability and I'm a thousand miles away from Madison. No one carries EG here. Crazy Lenny needs to open a Colorado branch!

And for that matter, servicing a bike has always been a learn and/or re-learn as you go effort for me. I recently updated the rear sprocket on my Nexus Hub of the Zurich. My own expertise servicing a Nexus Hub was "learn-as-I-go". Disconnecting the cabling was a bit tricky but the toughest part was taking a link out the chain then re-installing the cable and chain guard. Mostly with all bikes "learn or re-learn as you go" gets the job done. Whats the worst that can happen when there are 3 capable bike shops within 10 miles of my location?
Speaking from experience, one can buy a bike on-line with complete confidence in a fair transaction. Take reasonable precautions such as transacting through PayPal.
