Electric Bike Review

Super 73 Electric Bike Review 2020

Hailing from Southern California, Lithium Cycles created the SUPER73 electric motorbike in 2016 after an exceptionally successful Kickstarter campaign. Since then, they’ve become the popular electric bike on the internet, striking a chord with many.
The vintage motorcycle designs of inspired design is a distinctive blend of urban cruiser and off-road scrambler. 4″ wide tyres means you can ride anywhere, be it sand, snow, mud or the city streets. The Super 73, a minimalist electric bike that resembles a small motorcycle, which is much pricier than more practical e-bikes. The stylish e-bike struck a nerve with more deep-pocketed millennials than they expected, so they pivoted from making electric carts for businesses and put all that money into making the Super 73.

Super73 Z SERIES

Super73 is all about the laid-back, Southern California style. These electric bikes place an emphasis on the mini-bike styling and give the feel of zooming around town on an electric moped or motorbike. But with many of the full-featured Super73 e-bikes starting at $2k or more, I wanted to see if you could get the same kind of experience on the $1,150 Super73-Z1, which is the company’s entry level model.

Super73-z1 e-bike video review
Check out my video review below to see the Super73-Z1 in action.

fat tire bike

Bare bones, just the essentials
The first thing you’ll notice is that the Super73-Z1 is stripped down to the bare necessities. There are no lights, fenders, suspension, pedal assist, gear shifter, horn…. nothing! I even included the kickstand in the “Extras” section of the tech specs above because I was scraping the bottom of the barrel.

So you’re going into this knowing that there’s not a lot of fancy equipment or features.

But what you do get is an affordable and fun little moped-style e-bike to rip around on! The bike gets up to 20 mph (32 km/h) and has those nice fat street tires that allow you to really lean into turns and roll right over obstacles (no losing these tires in trolley tracks!). The banana seat isn’t adjustable, but you can just scoot forward or backward to find the most comfortable spot for you. It doesn’t really matter where you sit because you aren’t going to be pedaling this thing much. It’s super awkward to pedal. There’s only one gear that isn’t low enough for hills or high enough to help out pedaling at max speed. But the motor is strong enough to get up hills with a lot more power than I expected from a 36V setup.

The biggest draw here is the style of the bike. You definitely turn heads on a Super73; it’s a very eye-catching design. And the cool thing about the Super73-Z1 is that it looks a lot more expensive than it is. It’s priced at $1,395 on Super73’s site right now. But I’d recommend checking it out on Amazon where you can save $250 and pick it up for $1,150. That’s a great price for a bike that looks this good (and this much fun to ride!). And if you really want to catch people’s attention, consider going for the “Astro Orange” model.

Even though pedaling is nearly futile, I didn’t really miss it. The Super73-Z1 is definitely a laid-back, cruise-around type of bike that feels much more like a motorbike than a standard bicycle. And since it is a Class 2 e-bike (limited to 20 mph), it is allowed in many more places than faster Class 3 e-bikes.

Of course it isn’t going to be as fancy as Super73’s other e-bikes. They just unveiled an awesome full suspension e-bike for $3,500 and even their S1 and S2 with more range, higher power drivetrains, and fancier features start at twice the price of the Super73-Z1. And I love the Super73-S1, don’t get me wrong. I reviewed it last year and had a blast. But forking over $2k+ is a much bigger commitment than $1,150 for the Super73-Z1.

Of course you aren’t just giving up features like lights and LCD displays here, you’re also giving up range. That’s probably the biggest caveat of this bike — it doesn’t have great range. The 418Wh battery is a bit below average compared to the industry, and those 4-inch-wide fat tires aren’t doing efficiency any favors. The company says you can get 20 miles of range, but that’s likely measured at less than top speed. Is 20 miles of range possible? Sure. But who rides like that?

In real life, when you’re spending most of your time with the throttle pegged, you’re not likely to see more than 15 miles (25 km) of range. Thrash it really hard and you could get even less. So if you need a longer range bike for distance rides, this isn’t it. Not only is the range short, but the battery isn’t removable. You’ve got to charge it on the bike, which probably means garage charging for most people.

But for anyone who just wants to cruise around the city, run errands, or look cool riding the local boardwalk or pier, the Super73-Z1 is the bike that will do it for you. And even though it isn’t as fancy as some other e-bikes, I can forgive all that because of the price. If you can afford a fancier e-bike, Super73 has higher-end bikes on offer. But for those of us that want to stretch every dollar as far as we can, the Super73-Z1 hits the spot.

Super 73 S SERIES

With a look that resembles a classic mini bike from the 1960s, the Scout S1, of course, is more modern version and uses an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. The motor is in the rear wheel, it’s a geared hub motor and the faux gas tank actually houses the battery where you would normally expect a gas tank on a mini bike to be.

The big front headlight enhances the look, but instead of a big, wiggly incandescent bulb, it’s a bright, attractive LED. The S1 comes stock with a short saddle, but there’s an option for one that extends all the way to the back of the rack.
“When your inner 10-year-old comes out, sometimes you have to try it anyways.”
Though the frame and fork are made in-house, much of the rest of the hardware, like headset and bottom bracket, are fairly standard bike parts. At 135mm wide with a solid axle, the front hub is definitely made for fat bikes. It’s all pretty beefy with an overall build quality that can be likened to a tank. At about 70 pounds, it’s not something you’re likely going to lift up much, but it has a torquey 500-watt motor that scoots it around easily. Any time you put a hub motor on a small wheel, you get a lot of torque, and the 20-inch wheels on this bike prove that.

Super 73 electric bike

The bike comes standard with a shorter seat and a rack for easy cargo carriage. Customers can request a seat that extends all the way back. You have your choice of flat black or white, though custom colors can be arranged. Their stock olive (think old military vehicles) looks really good, and we saw one custom paint job for a customer in bright pink. Custom colors add to the price, of course. The bike comes standard with knobby tires, but you can swap them for slick tires, and if you’re over 6 feet tall, they recommend upgrading to the extra-long seat.

A single gear is attached to a powerful, geared, 500-watt hub motor that makes this a pretty quick bike.
The Scout S1 comes with a nice toolkit to assemble the bike if you have it shipped to you, including an adjustable crescent wrench, a pedal wrench, several sizes of hex wrenches, and a 4mm Torx wrench to install and tighten brake rotor bolts. If you don’t want to assemble it, and you’re able to pick it up in Tustin, California, they will assemble it fully for you for $75.

The 14.5-Ah battery takes about three hours to fully charge and promises plenty of range. This bike may not be your choice for a touring bike, but it definitely is all about style and some performance. The 30-plus-mile range should be more than enough for most people’s commutes. The controller is very easy to read and ergonomically placed with an integrated thumb throttle. Pedal assist is also available via a cadence sensor.

The Scout S1 is aimed directly at those who want a very stylish electric bike and don’t mind getting plenty of attention. Those of a certain age will remember mini bikes that were in ads in a lot of magazines, which some of us had and some of us wished we had them. They usually were powered by a lawnmower engine. This one is pure electric—no pull cord to start it! Unlike those old mini bikes, this one is designed primarily for flat, paved roads. A sleek, chic commuter. There seems to be equal interest in this bike from both the older and younger/hipster generations.

Super 73 electric bike

Getting on this bike is very easy. It’s fairly low and has a large, padded seat. The display, controller and motor look like they’re from Bafang, but it’s sourced through Lectric Cycles and branded as Lithium. The throttle and controller with display are really sturdy, and you can position it for easy reach on the right side. Since the bike has a cadence sensor, any pedal input starts up the power instantly. You can use the throttle instead if you prefer. The wide pedals can be a little awkward at first, so the throttle becomes the go-to. Power-assist levels didn’t seem to have a big difference between them, so the throttle is actually a more accurate way of controlling speed. The brakes have cutoff switches, and with the wide contact patch of the tires, quick stops are pretty easy.

As with any fat-tire bike, tire pressure is crucial. The suggested range is 20–30 psi with a 35-psi max. Good suggestion. The higher the pressure, the less rolling resistance. That also has to be tempered with how hard a ride you want in that the only suspension in the bike is in the tires and a tiny bit in the padded seat. Lower pressure equals a more cushy ride and better grip depending on the surface.

The tires have tubes, and those tubes aren’t easy to source if you get a flat. Bike shops are unlikely places to find a tube to fit a 20×4-inch tire. You may have to go to a motorcycle shop to find one. We had to patch one of the tubes at one point for want of a readily available replacement.

There’s no suspension to see here. The voluminous tires still provide for a fairly cushy ride. The bike isn’t designed for much off-road use, but that didn’t stop one of our test riders from seeing what it was capable of. He took it on a trail we use for mountain bike tests, and after a steep, 20-minute climb, the hub motor overheated. He let it sit for five minutes, and it had already cooled enough to start again and keep going. It’s not what the company recommends, but when your inner 10-year-old comes out, sometimes you have to try it anyways.

Super73 R series
The R-Series takes the original Super73 electric bike design and cranks it into overdrive. That means a powerful motor, bigger battery, full suspension, high quality components, integrated tech/smart features, and an aggressive design.

pedal assist bike

We’ll start with the motor. It’s a 750W continuous unit, but that’s a nominal 750 watts — as in 750W in name only. Out of four power modes, the first three mode allow the motor to peak at 1,200W.
The Super73 R-Series ships with a standard Class 2 e-bike setup including a 20 mph (32 km/h) top speed and a functional hand throttle. But three other ride modes offer Class 1 operation (pedal assist limited 20 mph), Class 3 (pedal assist at 28 mph) and Unlimited Mode (full 2,000W peak power and throttle control up to 28 mph). Super73 explicitly states that Unlimited Mode is not for public roads but rather for use on private property. Super73 actually lists the top speed of Unlimited Mode as “28mph +,” meaning that riders might even be surprised with an even higher top speed. Considering the “20 mph” Super73 S1 took me up to 25 mph, I wouldn’t be shocked to find that the R-Series overdelivers on speed as well.

The 960 Wh battery on the Super73 R-Series is one of the largest batteries found in the electric bicycle industry. It is built with 21700 Li-ion battery cells and is large enough to provide up to 40 miles (64 km) of range under throttle-only operation at 20 mph (32 km/h). Add in your own pedal assist and the bike can reach a maximum range of 75 miles (120 km).

Unlike previous versions of the Super73 e-bike, the R-Series offers full suspension. There are two different models to choose from, the R Base Model and the RX Premium Model, and each has a slightly different suspension setup.

The RX Premium Model includes an adjustable inverted front shock and a coilover piggyback monoshock in the rear. In case you weren’t aware, we’re talking nearly light electric motorcycle-level suspension here. Other high end components include 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes on oversized rotors, powerful LED head and tail lights, Super73’s proprietary new 5-inch wide tires and options for features like a two-person seat, passenger foot pegs, IoT connectivity for smartphone alerts such as anti-theft warnings, horn, turn signals, and more.

Ecotric Fat Tire Electric Bike Review & Purchasing Guide

Electric bikes increase in popularity every year, and are a great eco-friendly commute option for anyone looking to reduce their environmental impact. On top of this, electric bikes have become more versatile, allowing you to use them for mountain biking, cycling, and more. But once the weather turns colder, or you find yourself on dirt roads, you want to be sure to invest in a fat tire electric bike.

Fat tire electric bikes have larger tires than your average bike, which gives them increased traction on slick and rough surfaces. This not only allows you to travel further over rough terrain without exerting as much energy (or battery power), it can help prevent the slipping and sliding that happens when biking in light snow or other wet conditions.

Fat Tire Electric Bike Frequently Asked Questions
Are Fat Tire Electric Bikes Harder to Ride?
This is a bit of a complex question. Fat tire bikes make riding over tough terrain a breeze compared to bikes with smaller tires, and can make that stretch of gravel you dread a bike in the park. But fat tire bikes are heavier than their counterparts, and are much heavier to peddle on flat surfaces like pavement. In short, the difficulty comes more from the terrain than it does from the bike, so be prepared to spend a little extra power (either motor or pedal) when working with a fat tire electric bike.

Are Fat Tire Electric Bikes Slower?
Again, this question is a bit relative to the terrain. If you tried to take your normal bike over bumpy surfaces and off road, it would probably perform much slower than on pavement or flat ground. But overall, yes, fat tire bikes tend to be slower than bikes with thin tires, especially on pavement. This applies to fat tire electric bikes as well, but they are still much faster than walking, and when you factor in the delays caused by uneven ground or frustrating terrain, it all tends to even out.

Are Fat Bikes Cool?
We’ve gone over the technical questions associated with fat tire electric bikes, but there is one question that we still need to answer: are fat bikes cool? We say yes, but check out this video to find out why they’re so cool.

Fat Tire Electric Bike Purchasing Guide
If you feel overwhelmed by the amount of options for fat tire electric bikes, no need to worry! We’ve rounded up the key features to keep in mind while bike shopping.

Tire Size and Tread
While it goes without saying that fat tire electric bikes will have larger tires than your average cycle, you want to consider the size of the tires and tread type before making your investment. The wider the tires, the more stability, but also the slower the speed. And while increased tread can make traveling over rough terrain that much easier, it can slow you down on paved roads, and eat into your battery life.
The real trick is to choose a set of tires that are wide enough to provide support, and with enough tread for your needs, without becoming unwieldy. It can help to do some research on the best tire types for your activity of choice, and to scout out your daily commute or favorite trails to see what your new bike will have to contend with.

Motor and Battery
As with any electric bike, the stronger the motor, the heavier it becomes. Fat tires can contribute to the overall weight of your bike, meaning you’ll need a stronger motor to go as fast as the average electric bike. This means that you may end up needing a larger battery to run your motors, which can contribute to the overall weight of the bike again. These all play off of each other to impact battery life and overall speed, not to mention the bulk of your new bike. And while you may not be entirely concerned about the weight of your bike now, you might rethink that stance once you have to carry it with you on a commute.

Mediavine
Another thing to keep in mind is the kind of motor your fat tire electric bike has. Power-assist and full-power motors can add or detract to your bike depending on its intended use, so it’s best to consider if you want a bike that does all the work for you (full-power) or a motor that can kick in when the going gets tough (power-assist).

If you are looking for an affordable electric fat bike, that is easy to store and transport, the HOTEBIKE A6AH26F is one to consider. With walk assist, three modes of pedal assist and a twist throttle, this bike offers plenty of options for any rider. The bike is comfortable to most, with adjustments for riders 165cm- 190cm.

Trek electric bike and HOTEBIKE electric mountain bike review

Trek electric bike and HOTEBIKE electric mountain bike review

Trek electric bike is a brand mostly known for its high-quality performance and mountain bikes, but the Wisconsin-based manufacturer is making a major play for urban commuters with its new lineup of powerful, sleekly designed, and impressively fast electric city bikes.

Trek’s new Allant+ lineup features 10 different e-bikes, ranging in price from $3,600 to $6,000. If that seems steep, it’s because every model is powered by a top-of-the-line Bosch motor that is lighter and offers less resistance than previous generations for “a more natural ride feel,” Trek says.
trek electric bike
I recently made the trek (heh) to one of the company’s retail stores on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to test out the most expensive model, the Allant+ 9.9S, which retails for $5,999. At first glance, the bike is similar in appearance to Trek’s Dual Sport+, which was first released in 2018. Like the Dual Sport+, the battery on the 9.9S is completely integrated into the frame, giving it a clean, aesthetically pleasing look overall. trek electric bike is clearly ready to move past the sunken-battery design of its Super Commuter+ 8S, which itself was a step above the bolted-on battery design of trek electric bike older models.

The frame shape was very inviting, with a slightly downward-slanting top tube that has a stand-over height of 82.1 cm (32.3 in). If that’s still too high, you can also opt for the Stagger variant with a stand-over height of 70.6 cm (27.8 in). This is sure to be attractive to customers who want a bike they can share with other members of their family.

Beneath the polished surface lurks a heck of a lot of power. An impressive 625Wh battery fits snugly inside the frame, which is just a ton of power for a city-style e-bike. If somehow that’s not enough juice, you can bolt a second battery to the down tube for even more range. There are many e-bikes sold with dual batteries, but this is the first I’ve heard of a bike seller letting you add a second battery after the sale.

I haven’t had the chance to test out a bike with Bosch’s Performance Line Speed motor, but it only took one loop around Central Park to impress me. It’s about 40 percent smaller and 20 percent lighter than the previous Bosch motors. That means less drag when you pedal through the assistance level, according to Darren Snyder, director of Trek’s global city bike category. And it’s quieter, because there are fewer meshed gears and less surface area to create noise. Overall, the smaller motor gave Trek more room in the down tube for that bigger, 625Wh battery.
The bike itself is heavy, but mostly due to its high-powered battery. Trek has worked to shave some weight off the frame itself — about four pounds, compared to previous generations — by using its own patented OCLV carbon material. The Allant+ 9.9S clocks in at 23.36 kg (51.5 lbs), which is about five pounds more than the Dual Sport+, but a pound less than the Super Commuter+ 8S.

A cool feature is the bike’s digital display. You can either use the screen that comes with the bike, or you can sub in your own smartphone by snapping it into an adjustable mount and pairing it via Bosch’s COBI app that tracks your speed, assist levels, power usage, location, and more. The app also has a fitness tracker that can pair with other devices like a smartwatch, and a music tab which can connect to Spotify or whichever podcast app you prefer. That said, I didn’t get a chance to test out all of the apps features.

On my brief ride around the park, I found the 9.9S to be a delightfully speedy and smooth ride that was equally enjoyable in low- and high-power settings. I wouldn’t take the bike off-road, though, without getting some added suspension in my seat or front fork. But that said, the 27.5-inch tires, made by Trek’s own Bontrager brand, were comfy and — I was surprised to learn — made specifically for e-bikes with a thicker piece of rubber in the middle of the tread to provide more traction.

Snyder said the Allant+ bikes were designed to conquer commutes and tackle that first- and last-mile challenge. The metal fenders, for example, are designed to withstand more abuse than a plastic equivalent. The bike felt sturdy, but I’d need more time with it before gauging whether it was a daily rider or not. Trek isn’t offering any folding models, which, depending on your commute, could be a possible drawback. I know some cyclists like having the option to bring their bike onto public transportation or toss it in the back of a car. The rear rack is replaceable to accommodate a child’s seat, but Trek isn’t actively marketing this bike to parents due to liability concerns. As a dad who takes my kid to school every morning and is mostly interested in e-bikes that can replace my need for a car, I hope they reconsider that tactic.

As we’ve previously noted, e-bikes for commuters are expensive. E-bikes from Trek or the recently released models by General Motors are designed to dramatically increase the range of what is considered “bikeable” distances while reducing the reliance on cars, ride-hailing apps, or public transportation.

Trek’s bikes are especially pricey because you also get access to a range of services, from warranties to the company’s vast network of repair shops, that you don’t have with a less well-known brand. There are hundreds of e-bikes out there that are exponentially cheaper than the Allant+ 9.9S, but you could be stuck out on a limb when it eventually breaks down.

Snyder told me that “design integration” was the driving force behind the Allant+ lineup. “We really wanted to clean up the profile and aesthetic,” he said. Most e-bikes on the market today have extremely visible batteries and design profiles that distinguish them from most traditional bikes. That’s fine, but sometimes you want to ride under the radar.

It’s a $15.4 billion industry as of last year, and there’s no sign of a slowdown. In 2018, e-bike sales even surpassed traditional bike sales.
It was an unforeseen at the end of the day positive result of the COVID19 pandemic: individuals wherever are purchasing up e-bicycles all at once. Regardless of whether for a moderate transportation elective that gets workers out of pressed transports, or for no reason in particular to ride around subsequent to going through weeks under lockdown, e-bicycle organizations over the US are seeing void stockroom racks and hysterically restocking as clients purchase out most of their stock.
Pick a notable brand:
While picking an electric bicycle, the brand is significant. Brands with yearly creation and deals volume arriving at a specific scale have high notoriety both at home and abroad, standard purchasers can likewise become commonly recognized names, and the after-deals administration framework is sound.

why I choose Hotebike A6AH26 electric bikes:
Who realized that biking could be so much fun? I haven’t ridden a bicycle normally in about the most recent 5 years. Here comes COVID. presently I am out of nowhere riding my sibling’s bicycle routinely with my companions around. Time for my ride, and I took a risk in Hotebike Electric off-road bicycle 26-inch 350W e-bicycle engine 36V concealed battery A6AH26

Difference from other bikes
Some view the ascent of e-bicycles as a danger, like standard bicycles will go the method of the penny-farthing once everybody goes electric. Yet, dread not: E-bicycles aren’t here to deny us of our human-controlled lifestyle. Actually, they might just improve it—particularly as movement and driving propensities change in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. So as we fold our way into top riding season, here’s all that you have to think about the electric upset.

1. electric bikes make accelerating simpler:
As a rule, e-bicycle will be bikes with a battery-controlled “help” that comes by means of accelerating and, now and again, a choke. At the point when you push the pedals on a pedal-help e-bicycle, a little engine draws in and gives you a lift, so you can speed up slopes and voyage over extreme landscape without gassing yourself. Called “pedelecs,” they feel simply like regular bicycles—however better, says Ed Benjamin, senior overseeing chief at the counseling firm Electric. “You control your speed with your feet, as with a standard bicycle,” he says. “You simply feel truly incredible and quicken without any problem.”
Notwithstanding the pedal-help include, some e-bicycles accompany a choke that draws in the engine with the press of a catch. These have a place with a different class of e-bicycle that, clearly, doesn’t offer an unadulterated cycling experience; they’re likewise unlawful in certain districts. Strangely, Benjamin says, individuals who aren’t now “cyclists” will in general incline toward choke bicycles from the outset, yet then pivot and pick a pedal-help for their next buy.

2. They go really quick… to a point:
The harder you pedal, the greater the lift, the quicker you’ll ride—to a point. electric bikes let you murmur along at a lively clasp, yet they aren’t cruisers. You’ll never pound not far off at 45 mph. The engine is represented to quit impelling you further when you hit 20 to 28 miles for each hour, contingent upon the bicycle. So you’ll spare time on your drive (I shave around three minutes off a five-mile trip) yet at the same time appreciate the landscape.

3. You’ll ride much more, regardless of whether you as of now ride a great deal:
Getting an electric bike can drastically build how regularly you ride, as indicated by an overview of almost 1,800 e-bicycle proprietors in North America. Heretofore, 55 percent of respondents said they rode day by day or week by week. In the wake of purchasing an e-bicycle, that number took off to 91 percent. It bodes well: Even in case you’re overly fit, you actually get worn out (likely from preparing or dashing) and remounting your bicycle can feel like a task. In the event that you have an e-bicycle, you can keep riding while at the same time giving your knackered legs somewhat of a break. You can likewise speed up, which makes biking for longer outings more alluring, in any event, when you’re in a hurry.
For the individuals who aren’t continuous riders, e-bicycles open up a totally different world. While you may not be adapted to ride 5-10 miles all at once, you can cover those separations effectively with an electric help, which is an incredible method to assemble perseverance and certainty. That equivalent overview found that 94 percent of non-cyclists rode day by day or week after week in the wake of getting an e-bicycle.

4. There’s an e-bicycle for everything:
Name a sort of riding, and there’s an e-bicycle for that. In the event that you have zero enthusiasm for an electric street bicycle, you may get yourself head over heels for a high-limit e-payload bicycle that can pull 400 pounds of stuff while as yet cruising at a cool 15 mph. E-bicycles are accessible in fat, freight, worker, recreational, hardtail, full-suspension mountain, and even execution street bicycle styles. For verification, here are twelve e-bicycles we love for each sort of cyclist.

5. They can supplant driving:
“Individuals are purchasing electric bikes as an approach to diminish vehicle trips,” Benjamin says. The information backs him up: 28 percent of overview respondents said they purchased an e-bicycle explicitly to supplant driving a vehicle. What’s more, numerous different reasons purchasers recorded for needing an e-bicycle—including conveying load and children, abstaining from stopping and traffic, and natural concerns—likewise show a longing to get out from in the driver’s seat. Besides, you don’t have to switch garments or tidy up when you show up at your objective, since you don’t need to work up as a very remarkable perspiration.
Consider that the greater part of all driving outings are shorter than 10 miles, with certain studies announcing that the normal single excursion adds up to simply 5.95 miles. That is an easy decision separation to cover by e-bicycle. Indeed, the overview found that proprietors supplanted 46 percent of their vehicle drives and 30% of their driving tasks with e-bicycle rides. All you need is an incredible worker sack to convey your stuff, and you’re set.


Simple to amass:
Bought on Amazon and simply got the bicycle. I need to state it’s magnificent. All parts are pressed well and simple to gather the bicycle. Took around 1 and a half hours to amass and make changes. I don’t figure the vast majority will experience any difficulty in the event that you follow the Great you-tube video that shows the bit by bit.

I give the best grades conceivable to their client care. The main thing I didn’t care for was the seat, however the simple fix to purchase a more agreeable one…Enjoy! Increasing speed goodness.
