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 panniers with ease. Can you say “real transportation”?

One very good improvement, but several major setbacks for this model year.
8/23/2019
I previously owned a 2015 model that had a lot of issues so when I bought this one I was expecting improvements. The only major plus is that the motor is now located on the crank instead of the wheel. This allow any bike shop to service it. I was getting a lot of refusals with the 2015 model. One problem that was never solved was that you still use organic brake pads as standard. When a bike is capable of almost 30mph this is not appropriate as the pads need to be replaced after only 2 weeks. Metallic should be standard. Another downside is a grip throttle is no longer standard. So you cannot use throttle mode right out of the box. Pedal assist only. You can buy a throttle separately, but it's a thumb lever, which is very difficult to use, cramps your hand, and makes it very easy for your hand to slip off of the grip if you hit a bump, because your thumb is no longer wrapped around the grip. But the biggest problem I have is that the 2015 model had a 10-cog wheel, allowing you to get to the 28mph max assisted speed with ease. Most cases I was able to do 28-30mph. But with the new 9-cog wheel, this is incredibly rare, as you need to be pedaling at a very fast and dangerous crank rotation rate in 9th gear to reach that speed. On average I can only do 25mph. Which brings up another problem. Because you cannot reach the higher speeds without the shorter 10 cog, Assist Mode 4 is useless. If you attempt to use it you end up in a strangely uncomfortable cycle: (1) Motor pushes you faster than you crank is rotating so you stop pedaling to get the motor to stop, (2) momentum slows you and you start pedaling only 1 or 2 crank rotations, (3) motor kicks back in and you stop pedaling again. In order to match Assist Mode 4 with the ACTUAL top speed of the bike, I had to reconfigure the power setting in the computer from 100% to 80%. Sure I get very good range now but that is not the point. Also, after owning the bike for only 1 month, the 9th cog broke off anyway. Because of this the derailleur also refuses to use the 8th cog without the chain falling off. Rendering the bike even slower. I can now only do 18mph max speed on the 7th cog without problems.
