Any experience with the Ezesty over time? Is the less powerfull motor an issue?
How is quality?
It was such a hot topic a few months ago, but lately I dont hear much.

Still loving it. I got rid of the sram re brakes for hope v4 with a floating front disc purely for looks but works amazing. I'm losing more and more weight and even find riding it with the motor off great. My fitness is better than ever. I'm still out a few times a week, so about 80km a week. not missing the extra power of my shimano system at all. No problems to report.

Oh and did my first ever enduro a couple of weeks ago and the bike was awsome, I was useless. 😁

Sadly all sold out until the 2020 models hit in October (unless you fit an xl) Otherwise I would be very tempted.

Sold out? That's nuts. Where are they? The emtb community isn't that big I'd wager so surely others would at least know someone who knows someone? I'd love to talk to another owner rather than someone who is doing a review. Except Rob hes more or less like ourselves.

There’s only about 6 in the wild in the UK at the moment. But a lot ordered. They will start shipping very soon. @Welshrobinireland you we’re a lucky first owner!

My guess is they did not get access to many motors. I get the impression fazsua is a tiny company and they have proved very popular on e-road bikes. I have one on my raven. Wonder if I send it to them they would put it into an e-zesty frame for me ;)

Be very interested if there is any noise from the motor ?? We have a couple of 2018 Levi's which are very quiet.....like the idea of the zesty but really don't want to go to a whirring motor.....

I've ridden or been around all the motors and the brose on the older model levo is about the quietest I'd heard until I was on this fazua. Yes you can hear it but you really have to try. you wouldn't be disappointed I'm sure. The only thing you might be disappointed with is maybe the lack of power. That said, when I now get on my e-genius I think that's got too much power. It's funny what you can get used too I suppose. also if you go out with other ebikers on "regular" emtbs then expect to be left behind.

Hey Rob did you have a go on one yet? Really interested to see what you think.
Ditto, I love the power of my Shimano but it's hurting trying to man handle it around, a lighter bike with less power appeals (y)

I've got one I've swapped out brakes and fitted a 34t hope ring on front yes you have to work a bit harder on climbs but there are a lot more pros than cons I love it

Love it. I see you have the hope brakes also. Just got the empty down tube cover and will be trying a small spin going commando in the coming days. 🤞 I dont die lol.

Is the fazua motor quiet and have you done a range test ?
As I've mentioned before, you really have to try and hear it. It's very quiet. Regularly do 30 plus km and haven't run out of battery yet. Probably would if in the highest setting but I'm quite frugal.

Yes pal the bigger ring on the front gives it a bit faster pace I've a blank and spare battery on order but arnt the ace turned with no assist super smooth
Last night in a pack of 6 bikes I was cruising down the tarmac in zero assist riding with a levo carbon and the lad had his in eco just to keep up

Has anyone actually weighed one yet? I'd be interested to know just how far under 20kg it is in the real world with pedals (y)
Cheers.
