Ratings and Reviews
This bike is pretty awesome. I’ve only put about 39 miles on it but it was pretty effortless. I’m planning on parking my car and commuting 10 miles to work 5 days a week. The only complaint that I have is that Houston Texas roads and sidewalks are terrible or nonexistent. On the trail is where this thing shines. It attracts a lot of attention. As I was saying. On the trail. This beauty just cruises. I can go 20mph with minimal effort. So if you are a seasoned cyclist. You will love to get this thing up to 30mph. You will want to invest in some googles/glasses. Bugs hurts when they go splat in your eye. 😔
I will update this review after I have had it for a longer period. So if you’re wondering if you should buy it. The answer is yes! You will love it!
Version 2.0 is very well done. I like the map feature. Interface has high attention to detail, much like the bike itself.
It would be cool if there was a geofencing feature that would disable auto-wakeup. At work I like auto-wakeup and want it ON. At home I’d like if OFF because I do not want my bike turning on as I walk around the house. Probably not worth the development effort... but would be cool.
I purchased a Smart Bike in hopes that the technology would be as advertised. This is my second VanMoof as my other was stolen: same quality bike but not smart.
You cannot conveniently walk up to the bike with the phone in your pocket and tap to unlock. I have all settings for the app turned on (background refresh, location tracking, etc) and I still have to take my phone out of my pocket and unlock it for my bike to recognize me and allow me to tap to unlock.
My second and biggest complaint is the headlight not working unless I “start my bike up” by opening the VanMoof app so the “auto on” feature (not so auto on if I have to perform this much manual work) turns on and the taillight blinks. Only then will my headlight work. If you simply hop on the bike and begin peddling the headlight will not work!!! This is my biggest disappointment as my generation 1 VanMoof’s Light would power up upon cycling. It would even slowly die out after riding as the power from the hub drained out. On this bike, you stop riding, the light turns off immediately. Lame.
I really hope they get this fixed via the app because I want to like the convenience of this bike; however it does not perform as advertised.
