Is an ebike subpar just because of a few ealry stage hickups of the electric system ? What about geo,suspension,trail feel,frame durability ??? I see that Fazua are working on their bugs (though I agree they should have done it prior to getting out to market) and know that most brands have had issues with the systems as well - Levo sl very weak motor and plenty of noise,Shimano ep8 rattle and many errors,Brose motors on Levo's breaking (I know some riders with 8 motors in 2 years !),Rocky mountain alot of noise/friction issues due to the pully system etc...I feel its a subpar e-bike due to its general lack of refinement. The motor is a bit wonkey at times (hopefully the update will fix that) the random battery connection issues, the lackluster LED display and the absolutely crap mode controller. When comparing the ebike features to like say Specialized or a TQ equipped bike the Fazua system is lacking. Still love riding the bike esp downhill hill, but there is room for improvment.
Unfortunatlly there are issues on ebike systems,but saying all bikes with a Fazua are subpar is a bit harsh imho.
