I just got this ebike I'm very impressed the improvements are pretty much minor the lack of a real good bike seat it's very uncomfortable but you can do your own upgrade for something like a bike seat and with the battery I don't believe I can get the full range other people on social media are saying you can get to get a better range I would have to upgrade to the plus size battery but the provided battery to me in realistic riding hills stop and go in real traffic 20 mile range. The upgraded battery will probably give me 30 to 40 miles but other than those two gripes the NCM Moscow it's a very very good option for someone on a budget I caught it on sale for $1000 even well worth every penny
So far I am quite happy with this bike, it shifts and brakes well and has more than adequate power for a 6'2" 230# rider. I had a problem out of the box with the crank sensor causing power surging, but after a phone discussion Enrique diagnosed the problem and shipped the part to me. He also contacted a local bike shop and made an appointment to complete the repair. I read about some spoke breakage issues and I did notice a couple of loose spokes on the rear wheel at about 75 miles. I easily corrected that problem with a spoke wrench and checked all spokes with a tensioning tool. Maintaining proper spoke tension and tire pressure I think goes a long way toward minimizing spoke issues for a rider of my weight. The Moscow is a nice bike that generates lots of compliments. I did a lot of research before buying and I would buy one again.
my review would just be more of the same -- the others are spot on. great bike, absolutely killer value, and superb support from leon cycle.
here's a tip: if you need tech support, call leon cycle directly. you may have to try a couple times, but someone WILL pick up and someone knowledgeable will help you as efficiently as they can.
another tip: my brother got the Prague (and he's delighted with it), but the Moscow is well worth the extra $100. more power, more range, and it looks a little better.
I had been looking for months for an Ebike and this checked most of m wants. By far the best 500w bike i could find and great price. Shipping was fast had my bike 2 days after ordering it. I am right at the max weight limit and this bike feels like it was built just for us big guys, no problem with hills. In fact I keep the support around 3 on large hills.
Received the bike in the box with lot of beaten up from the shipping carrier. Opened up and put it together in less than 35 minutes.
The bike is well designed and well built. The ride is very smooth.
The battery could not turn off and rattle inside but Douglas sent out the replacement in couple days (best service that I have seen out there). The overall quality is in the top 3 that I can say.
I strongly recommend for anyone who looks into the ebike currently.
This is a good buy. Most of all, you will receive the best service from Douglas and Ryan.
