OUXI V8 Electric Bike Reddit
- I’m quite a lot taller than the average person, even for Dutch standards I’m on the tall side with 1.95m, but OUXI V8 is still very enjoyable for me. The very first time I rode on V8 bike I thought ‘hmm it might be a bit low’ but the electrical support is so huge that you barely have to peddle to get forward, so it doesn’t affect my ride enjoyment at all.
- It’s illegal in the Netherlands to have a bike that goes over 25 kph, but the police doesn’t enforce those rules (or only very rarely). I’ve had it set to 35/40 kph mostly (50 is the max) and I swap between level 3 to level 5 pedal support, depending on how clear the road is and how far I can go straight (I live in Amsterdam so most of the roads are busy/not too long, but when I bike to work I have a lot of open long roads on which I can easily go 40 (or even 50) kph).
- Changing the overall max speed of the bike takes a few clicks on the dashboard, and if you know what to do you can change the speed within a few seconds (might be useful if you get pulled over and have a max speed which is a bit too high 😉 ).
- The battery did run out pretty quickly on my last ride, but that was mostly because it was freezing over here, which drastically lowers the battery life. When I had my test ride of around 10 kilometers the battery didn’t drain a single bar (it has 5 bars) which indicates it should be able to get at least 60+ kilometers on a full battery. I went 40-50 kph for most of this ride and had full pedal support turned on.
- The brakes were something I was a bit scared of, based on the very few YouTube videos I could find about the Ouxi, but they’re working perfectly and are not making any weird sounds, which I saw in most of the vids they did.
- Still definitely worth it, although the brakes would be the first thing I upgrade but you’re already doing that so that shouldn’t be a problem. The factory brakes work sufficient enough but they’re not perfect by any means.
- The battery still works very well, although I do think the 50km range only applies when you barely got support activated. I think I can get close to 35km with full support active, which is more than enough for me in the city but might not be enough if you have to travel large distances.
It has arrived, I´ve assembled it and ran it for a test drive. Not in the rain yet. But so far it provides a smooth ride. You won´t enjoy lots of bumps in the road but especially on asphalt it runs smooth and quick.
It effectively goes at 50kmh, it has headlights with horn embedded, stop light, brakes sensors and directional back lights, and a super useful 7 speed shimano. It’s a cheap ebike, the finishings aren’t perfect, but in my opinion it’s a best buy for what it offers.
