Civi Bikes Cheetah

I've only put about 15 miles on my new Cheetah but it runs great and I get a lot of looks and conversations started over it. I've never had an e-bike and it takes some getting use to. I've noticed that without suspension you really need to stay on the road when going fast. The brakes work great. I love it and plan to get a seat suspension post for it.

Cool as is, cooler modified

I have had one of these, painted flat black, for about 4 months. I got it direct from China for $875. I had to do the customs process myself, but I wasn't charged any tariff. In fact, I didn't get charged anything at the customs office but spent about $200 for shipping charges. I customized mine by cutting the seat post tube down as far as I could and lowering the seat and I put on some Apehanger handlebars and my old leather saddlebags from my motorcycle went on the back rack that I added, Plus I took the back fender from an old fat tire stingray and painted that flat black also. I was going to buy about 20 0f these to rent out on Catalina Island but it became apparent right away that it would not make a good rental for a few reasons. One of them being that you can't switch out the battery easily. That right there makes it unusable to be a rental bike. Another reason is the balance. With the battery and controller placed high and forward it makes for an awkward balance. When you are up and running it isn't noticeable, but it makes for wobbly starts. But other than those things it's a cool bike and an attention getter for sure. I ride it with my three Golden Retrievers, one of which sits in a wooden trailer I made for her and the other two younger dogs run along the side of me, so that may be responsible for some of the attention. Bottom line is it's a cool bike and I am glad I got it.
