Thread starter flapattack Start date Jun 29, Tags giant ebike. Hi all, Any one seen any info regarding Giant's range? I can't find any info from Giant's site, or any site really.
The Charge display is a bit larger but doesn't seem as robust, and lacks a few nice additions like displaying navigation, heart-rate and phone SMS alerts. PlowKing New Member. I'm also interested in the E bike release. All the Quick-e have sold out in my frame size in Australia.

It differentiates itself from other cycling apps with three core functions including tuning possibilities, fitness interaction and notifications to your RideControl EVO screen. The Giant E-bike app is compatible with all our Giant E-bikes. Tuning With the Giant E-bike App, it is now possible to tune your motor settings and choose a support ratio most suitable for your riding style and terrain.
You can choose between stronger, more aggressive performance, or tune it for a more comfortable ride.Electric bike test ride - GIANT Dirt-E
The motor comes set with default settings and is adjustable with the App. Update your bike With this app update it is possible to update your e-bike to the latest firmware to ensure optimal functionality of the system.
Navigation Use the RideControl App for turn-by-turn navigation specifically designed for on the bike. If your bike is equipped with a compatible RideControl EVO display it will also show turn-by-turn navigation, so no need to keep your phone at hand. Fitness E-bikes offer a whole spectrum of riding possibilities—from making it easier to pedal and ride farther, to riding for fitness. The Giant E-bike App features new fitness functionalities so the rider can maximize their fitness gains and set goals by time, distance, calories or heartrate.
By using the smart auto adjust support function, the system measures the amount of effort you have to put in to reach your heartrate goals. After your ride, the App shows your accomplishments and performance including the human and motor consumption.
We have a small firmware upgrade for your bike making the Smart assist mode easier to access. Lacks basic information such as top speed and loses half of my ride info. Basically useless. I really like my giant bike but not having a display is a real bummer. I really wish I knew who thought it would be a good idea to remove the displays from the bikes for ????
This app has some potential but because it only reads in kilometers that is a little bit limiting for the North American market. Also it is confusing what heart monitors are supported. The other issue that I have is that the giant E bikes do not support changing tire sizes. The dash readouts are in error if you change tires.
As it is a new app, I will give it two stars until it improves. No imperial unit support and being a typical American, metric units are meaningless.Table of Contents. Remember, you still need to do some pedaling to reach what ever speed you want. However, some states have laws against operating these bikes on major roads usually 45 MPH speed limits or higheror may relegate bikes to designated bike lanes in certain areas.
For European readers, the laws will depend on what country you live in. This e bike has a watt motor powered by a 36V rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and will provide a power boost to keep your speed as high as 28 MPH.

This range can go up or down depending on your terrain and motor settings. This mode will get you better mileage, but provides the least amount of assist. Selecting this mode, will give you the standard setting, providing a moderate amount of power.
Lastly, the final and most exiting mode will give all the power the Yamaha motor has to keep you traveling along at 28 mph; keep in mind that this comes at the cost of depleting your battery faster. It also has an indicator that lets you know when your safety lights are on. Yes, there are safety lights on this bike. Another thing that Giant could improve is their mileage estimator.
To make it easier to get up and down stairs, Giant made the battery removable, but without a handle, it can be hard for smaller people to carry in one hand. If you live in an apartment with stairs, have fun lugging this or any electric bike up to your apartment. Lastly, looking at the overall design of the Quick e plus, seems that the tires may not have enough carving for wet conditions, which means you will have to be extra careful when riding after or during some rain.
Of course, these tires have been designed thinking on the urban settings rater than the most slippery conditions. Yamaha really outdid themselves with this motor. It also has a more aggressive, forward-leaning seating position than many comparable e bikes. This makes it ideal for experienced riders who just want a little boost, as well as for city commuters who are in a hurry. This makes it comfortable for medium to taller users, but can be inconvenient for people who are on the shorter end of the spectrum.
Aside from the various sizes Giant provides to riders, this model only comes with a high step frame, which means the access is not as comfortable as the lower step usually ideal for women.
Make sure you chat with your local dealer to get the right frame size for you needs.
Lastly, the price is comparable to other bikes in the same class, but understand that all modern electric bikes are going to look overpriced in a few years. Much like a brand new mobile phone, there will be a newer and better model next year. It looks sleek, runs quietly, and is easy to recharge from any residential power outlet. What old Giant e-bike reference are your referring to? Regards, Matt. I chose it because it was a low cost mid-drive but my observation is that they seem to have cut corners on every possible component in order to hit the price point.
