ABOUT THIS eBIKE
The E3 Dash is a proven performer and well known in speed pedal assist circles as a go-to electric bike. The aptly named Dash can get you to work fast while letting you burn a few extra calories along the way, and then let you sneak in a sunset selfie on the coast at the end of the day.
Robust alloy fenders keep you dry and won't rattle or bend, and the rear rack maintains a modern look while carrying pannier bags with ease. Can you say ‘Real Transportation’?

IN THE MEDIA
Those looking for speeding through the city should consider the E3 Dash. As its name suggests, this ebike will get riders where they need to go quickly. Potholes and speed bumps won’t do any harm to this ebike. Additions such as the alloy fenders and rear pannier rack make it perfect for commuting, even in the rain.
I have 3 very minor complaints. First, I wish I could control the lights coming on and off. For safety reasons, it is good to have the lights on when riding in traffic. I have about half a mile on streets on my commute. It would be nice to use the lights on demand.
Second, the routing of the cable for the rear light on the rack can make the bottom attachment point for my Ortlieb Pannier tough to get on from time to time. About once a week, I have to rotate that cable back to the side facing the tire to get the pannier on the bike. Either better external cable holders or internal cable routing would be nice for this.
Third, the way the battery attaches by the bottom bracket can be tricky. Both my wife and I have put the battery on the Dash and Zuma on the bike only to see the bottom of the battery is actually out of the housing. The top of the battery has some guides to make the battery slides on well, but the bottom doesn't.
Fourth, I wish you had made the step over in the green that the step through had. That was a great color and I would have liked better color options.
As I stated, these are very minor complaints. All in all, the Dash is a great bike. It is exactly what a commuter should be; quick, smooth and maneuverable. I am a heavier rider and I ride with the assist level on 3 for 90% of my commute. I arrive at work with about two bars left on on the indicator. On my way home, with a pretty steep hill at the very end of my ride that I go full assist on, I get home with 1-2 bars left on the battery. A head wind definitely uses more battery.
If you're looking for a quick ebike to make your commute more fun, you found it.
