So what's the guess on the new Lectric ONE product coming March 12?

Thanks for the gear calculator, Ortek.
I didnt find any pinion front sprockets larger than 39, but did see some 19 and 20 cog rear sprockets.


The mounting styles include Rohloff, 9-spline, and thread on. Do you know which type this is?
The Lectric uses a 113 tooth belt and 111 tooth belts are available. Would a smaller belt be necessary if the rear sprocket lost 4 teeth?

I don't know. Depending on what you're wanting to accomplish, I'd ask Lectric which rear cogs sizes can be used and what style they're using. Probably a 9-spline CDX, but just a guess.
I do like belt drives, but messing with different rear cogs and belts can be a pain and expensive, especially on ebikes. Chain drives are lot easier. Basically on single speeds it's just switch out the much cheaper rear cogs and add/remove links.
Again ask Lectric. They should know this.

No this is high end at an affordable price. No one has a bike with these features at this price. Probably the most affordable low maintenance commuter bike on the market today.
Agreed, many people are paying close to 2k for dozens of E-Bikes that don't come close to what Lectric One offers. If you think it doesn't meet your criteria then forget it.

Zero shipping damage.
Handlebar is a bit wide to my liking, might swap for narrower bar or just take a pipe cutter to it.

Wonder why Lectric didnt incorporate the battery in the downtube as usual with their other models? Not a fan of the exposed battery...
 
It’s the same battery as the Lectric Trike.
Frame integrated battery would be nice, but it would be difficult to get the battery on & off with the 20” wheels.
Top frame mount battery would be easier, but less water resistant at the connecting leads.
Without the battery mounted, Pinion gearbox can still offer decent riding experience.

As someone who stores their bike away from an outlet, I have the opposite opinion: I'm super excited to be able to easily take the battery with me. I love my XP 3, but swapping the battery out is not fun. And I like not have to worry about the break in the frame (because it's not a folding bike).

To back you up, though, what's really great about the tube mount is that it balances the bike so you can easily lift it by the center "handle". You'll want to remove the battery before carrying up stairs.

Also, they told me that the Pinion doesn't have a backup battery, it's just able to operate at lower voltages than the motor. In other words, you need a battery installed (even if not charged) to change gears.

The only negative with the battery location...is that it makes this new, revolutionary eBike... look really dated and cheap, which it's not. You can't have everything.
 
Well, haters gonna hate.
You try and find another ebike with Pinion gear box & belt drive that's $2k and tell others about your experience with it.
