    Whats up Chinese Moto!

    I hail from Detroit Michigan in the far north east of the USA. I currently reside in Changchun Jilin in the far north east of China. Both cities are the "car" cities of the respective country and both have the same weather. Not sure if I really moved or I imagined it.

    Either way, I picked up some no brand Chinese E-bike off taobao. It took me months to find something on my own that seemed like what I wanted. Let me know what you think. I will be selling it soon though. I decided to go with combustion. Not sure what bike I will buy. I was thinking either a Duke200 or a CB190R or one of the Chinese 250's.

    Here is my current bike. It has gotten me around for a year but I want to be able to leave the city so an E-Bike wont cut it any longer. She is quite pretty for a E-bike though.

    Curious to know how much those Lithium batteries cost and how long they last ?

    About a year?

    The batteries were 6500 alone. They should last several years. I saw no deterioration with them yet. Zero and Evoke claim the batteries will last 5 to 10 years. I'm not sure exactly what kind of lithium batteries they have but I'm sure mine are cheaper and likely won't last quite as long. Or maybe they will? I wish I knew more about batteries.
