RipCurrent S (750 Watts) / Aug '18 delivery Black / XL / 20" [Fits 6'0" to 6'4"] / 48 V / 19.2 Ah / $2,099 52 V / 19.2 Ah / $2,399

I have uploaded photos of the unboxing here. Busy week at work so I will post updates as time allows, but so far everything has gone really well.

I have a professional bike tool kit on hand, but used the included tools to keep it close to a regular build with an everyday user. Lets say it was a challenge at first, the tools are fine but cheap which is expected and keeps cost down. I did go over the bike once more and checked everything with a few specialty tools most people wont have, and using common sense anyone could build this bike without issue.

I will post more on my impressions of my first few weeks, the bike is mostly sitting now as I am waiting on some asscsores to get it commuting ready.

General info:
I am a tall guy so waiting tell the XL frame was in stock was hard, but worth it though it is a stand out the size is just right. Still wasn't able to get the 52v battery option, I will be reaching out to Juiced Bikes about switching out the 48v/19.2Ah for a 52v if it comes in stock. See UPDATE 2

During the purchase I used the checkout with PayPal, great to see several payment options. This was to split the purchase between cash(in PayPal balance) and a credit card that gets cash back.

I did have to make a correction to the shipping address do to recent road changes, though it was early enough I don't believe it will effect shipping time at all.

Something to note I have training building regular bikes for a large company. During the unboxing/ building phase hopefully this can help me provide extra insight about issues or ideas. If this goes as planned I should be able to provide detailed pictures and videos on the experience.

Rich from sales support was able to process the battery upgrade to a 52v version, on August 7th over email. It was relatively easy an invoice for the extra cost ($300) was sent out, and I paid it a few minutes later. This price does not include a Cycle Satiator, only a basic 2 amp charger.


The bike is now with UPS and on its way, and will be shipping as ground freight requiring a signature. I wont be able to sign for the bike myself but have arranged for someone to be here and take deliver. If this goes well I should be able to post updates within the next week on the building and first impressions.
