Lithium Cycles Super 73 Video Review - $2k Retro Minibike Electric Bike, Banana Seat, Kickstarter

https://electricbikereview.com/lithium-cycles/super-73/ The Lithium Cycles Super 73 is a retro styled electric minibike that was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2016, available in one size, uses 20″ x 4.25″ slick fat tires for cushion and improved stabilization. Steel frame is sturdy and helps to dampen vibrations compared to Aluminum but may rust if scratched, thoughtful reflective stickers on the rim sidewalls and headtube badge, integrated rear LED light. Powerful mid-drive motor and rack mounted battery keep weight relatively centered on the frame but the battery is higher up and the frame felt a bit tippy side to side, battery can charge on or off frame. Smaller 160 mm mechanical disc brakes leave something to be desired given the 74.5 lb weight and higher 25 mph top speed, cadence sensing assist and trigger throttle work well, beautiful color display with USB port.
