Populo Sport Electric Bicycle V2


DESCRIPTION

Bolt to work or play on today’s modern, lightweight, and eco-friendly Populo Sport Electric bike. This new gateway electric bike will get you to work or a social gathering, without the sweaty mess of a traditional bike. Let the 250-watt motor effortlessly energize your day with speeds up to 20 MPH, and a range of 30 miles or more!

Your choice of 8 electric assist levels will give you just the right amount of effort you desire. Forgot to charge your phone or light? Well, no problem; both the Smart LED screen and the 36 volt Panasonic battery come equipped with USB charging ports to plug and play! 

The Populo Sport V2 features 4 sizes instead of 3 so you can fine-tune the fit, braze-ons for a rear rack, and the fork has eyelets at dropout for a fender. Not only that, but we've added a water bottle boss on the seat tube and included a side-entry bottle cage.

As well as those new features, we also designed a stylish metal head tube badge, added a heavy-duty kickstand that easily handles the extra weight of an electric bicycle motor and battery, and gave you wider 700x28 tires for more comfort and control on rough surfaces or gravel roads than what came on the V1.

Love love love this bike , fast , light

Other bikes claim to go 20mph , but that's without anyone on it , the back wheel may spin at 20 mph , but sit 200 lbs on it and it sure doesn't go 20 mph , the Populo Sport goes as fast as it says . One great thing about this bike is if the gear ratio is too high and you feel you are pedaling too fast , slow your pedal and just move the pedals around slower , as it is a pedal assist bike it will keep going. Just be careful and keep the back cog oiled and cleaned after rain , when walking the bike the pedals can turn engaging the motor and you can get a shock when the bike shoots forward. I've got the biggest tires on this thing also.

Bought a Populo sport V1

Excellent experience, bought this online from Populo and it was shipped free to my local dealer bike shop. Free setup and no sale tax! Wonderfull. Oh yea, the bike is excellent also!

Fun bike

The relative light weight, simple functionality, ease of operation of the Populo V-3 are all big positives. This is a fun bike to ride. For future frames it is clear that the rear brake bridge needs to be a few millimeters higher. One solution is to fit slightly lower profile and higher performance tires, which I'll probably do anyway. This is a great bike for cycling aficionados who want to try out an e-bike, as it is reminiscent of fixies and single speeds. It is quite hilly where i ride, but with the electric assist no additional gears are really needed. I would love to see an upgraded version with lighter cranks, wheels, tires. As it is, this bike is a terrific value in the e-bike world.

Excelent Cust Service but there is some room for improvement

Since i got the bike I had some issues but all of them were solved by an amazing customer service. The frame is well built but bike components can be improved. I had a pedal that came loose and stripped the cranks, a crank that also came loose and then I bent pedal. The sprocket was woobly and had a couple of chain drops, the controller had to be replaced and the usb connector on the battery or under the display never worked. All these are minor issues and I still use this bike daily. Right now it has 1500 km and counting.

First Impressions

This bike is a very good looking bike right out of the box. Here in the northeast I have had only 2 chances to ride the bike due to the cold weather. Yesterday I took it out on a very hilly 20 mile ride. The bike met and exceeded all my expectations. It allows you to get a work out in, and gives you the extra you need to make the large hills. This is exactly what I was looking for.
