From Annie to Annie (Zini, KZN)
I purchased my Smart E-bike (Step Thru) just before Christmas 2020. A Christmas gift from me, to me… being kind to myself and my health.
I received my Smart E-bike in a bike box and had to assemble the already semi-attached handle bars, add the pedals, and quick release wheels. As easy as that! Even for me as a female. I had to check the enclosed instructions to get the pedals on.
I am a social rider and live in a village with a forest and many bike tracks and gravel roads. I find that my bike does very well on gravel and when I get to thick sand, the booster (level 2/3) does the job. The overall handling of my bike is very good; whether I am on gravel, single track, grass or tar. Being a step-through it is so easy to get on and off the bike. I mostly use level 1 on my bike although when on a steep hill, I go up to level 4 or 5. Level 4 and 5 make a steep hill, feel like a slight uphill. This is when the fun stats… My partner also bought a Smart E-bike and with every hill we have a challenge racing up the hill. We use the bike bell to celebrate victory. Loads of fun.
I cycle almost every day between 15-30 km, depending on my time available and weather. I re-charge my battery every 4th or 5th day, not because the battery is running low, but out of fear that I might do a long ride the next day (still to happen) and really don’t want to run out of battery power. The battery has 4 bars and have never gone below 2 bars.
I love my Smart E and it has been the best gift every!
Beth’s Pedego Comfort Cruiser has allowed her to maintain an active and sustainable lifestyle. Struggling to pedal uphills on the way home from work is a thing of the past. It’s also empowered her to participate in charity cycling events with her friends without feeling left out. “I feel free and liberated and ready to hit the trail!”
Norm and Teri thought their cycling days were over. Their bikes hung in the garage gathering dust for years. Then they bought Pedegos, and now they’re having a blast! “The thing about the Pedego is that nothing hurts when you’re finished riding,” says Norm. “It’s almost like being a teenager again. You can’t beat it. It’s a damn good life.”
Esther rides her Pedego City Commuter to and from work about 18 miles a day. She has enjoyed many benefits from riding, but she maintains that the best benefit is all the fun she’s having. “I’m loving it,” she says. “ It’s just a better quality of life. I look better, I feel better and I couldn’t ask for anything more than that.”
Suzanne rides her Pedego Interceptor about 20 miles a day along with her dog Bogie. She’s lost weight, normalized her diabetes, and stopped taking cholesterol medication since she started riding. “I love the fact that it’s getting me out there doing something I never thought I could do, or keep doing, and now I know I can!”
Larry gave up driving about ten years ago due to a degenerative eye disease.Now he gets around on his Pedego City Commuter with his guide dog, Trip, in a trailer behind him. “The thing about the Pedego bike that really changed my life, is that it moved me from a life of isolation to one where I’m empowered to go anywhere I want to go.”
