Arsenal Ebike Arrival
The Daymak Arsenal Folding Full Suspension Ebike
Paris 48V Arrival
The Daymak Paris 48V Cruiser Ebike
Wild Goose Arrival
The Daymak Wild Goose Fat Tire Ebike

All of our initial shipment is put together and tested. I had a chance to take two of them around the block and up a decent hill. My first impressions from below hold true: the bikes are quality products.

  • The Paris 48V cruiser feels luxurious and smooth (but with some powerful acceleration), comes with a nice cargo rack, a quick-adjust handlebar, and front suspension with lockout.
  • The Vermont 48V mountain bike feels powerful as well, but feels built for a more traditional mountain biking experience. It had no problem with the hill at the shop, even without me pedaling.
  • The Paris 250W entry-level cruisers feel similar to the Paris 48V overall, but with noticeable difference in power and extra features. The bikes are a great value for their $999 price tags, and include a locking, removable, 24V lithium ion battery pack.
  • The Wild Goose electric fat bikes feel big and wide as their name implies! They use a square-wave controller which gives them this awesome ‘vroom’ sound as they run. They are sturdy and large and are a lot of fun to ride. I got a chance to ride this up the big hill at the shop and it had no trouble but needed pedal assistance.
  • The Aresenal folding full suspension bike is the perfect commuter. It has the perks of a mid-level full suspension, folds in half for easy transport or storage, hides the battery in the tube for maximum efficiency, and doesn’t weigh a ton like some other bikes do.

Full tests, video, and pictures, coming soon!

ORIGINAL: I’m proud to announce that our first shipment of electric bicycles has arrived from Daymak! We have four of them put together and tested so far. I intend to have the rest done over the weekend, plus photos and video for you.

My first impressions are very positive. I found the bikes to be well-built and designed. The paint, parts, look, and feel all pass my personal standards for a higher-quality item for the price. I see the manufacturer has used quality, reliable parts from known manufacturers, such as Suntour, Shimano, and Bafang.

I rode each of the bikes briefly and indoors on clean, level ground. I found the acceleration and feel to be fast and fun. I will test more on the hills right outside the building over the weekend in the nice, dry weather.

Thanks for reading and watching!
