    Not sure, not your fault

    been working 12-hour shifts this week. Haven't had a chance to get the bike home. Still at the warehouse where you guys shipped it to me, will let you know soon.

    Awesome bike!!

    Shipping was super fast. Easy to assemble and really fun yo ride. It's a great bike and I would highly recommend it.

    Best Decision I've Ever Made

    Not for just merely the lack of stress I experience now during my rides to and from work, but I've gotten to see a new side of my community, get some nice exercise to and from work, I reap the benefits of having extra energy during my day and I find myself trying to find ways to use my Flash bike for any errand or task where I'd normally drive.
    Furthermore, I was able to adjust my car insurance, my employer incentivizes bike commuting, and all the obvious health benefits I listed above! I can't recommend the purchase of an e-bike more and the models offered by Flash are unparalleled (and I did a LOT of research on this before settling on buying Flash). I evangelize this bike and company to literally all of my co-workers and anyone who will indulge me by listening to all the positives. There are certainly improvements that could be made to this design (like shocks, ouch!), but I've already seen most of my (mostly minor) gripes corrected in the new version pre-releasing today (July 2018).
    Buy one now and you most certainly won't regret it!


    I love my new bike, its design, electronics, assistance and handling!
    Thanks FLASH!

    It’s good...not great

    I do like my Flash Commuter bike. It’s a pretty convenient tool for me to get to and from the bus I take to work. That said two things are troubling me.

    First, the components aren’t all that great. Plastic fenders, lower end shifters, cranks, bars, seat, etc. just make the experience of using the bike a little less awesome than I thought it’d be. Secondly, very shortly after paying full price for my bike...they went on sale...a pretty big sale at that. Overall I’m just feeling like I paid top dollar expecting a state of the art machine and I got a pretty good, clearly over priced bike instead.
