Review

I have been using this system for several years on a Trek 9.2 frame and it is fantastic. The charge lasts through 10 miles of hilly commuting every day. I installed the system myself and support has been very helpful with any issues coming up over the years. Nicholas D.

It is Great!

I just wanted to let you know that my e5.3 eBike System was successfully installed by my local bike store and I took it out for its first ride yesterday. Long story short, it was great! I kept it on 1 most of the time and still was able to keep up with my friend riding her DF. This was the first time ever I was able to do that without wearing myself out. 18.6 miles of rail/trail riding on crushed limestone made easy by the e5.3. Best investment I've ever made except for my 559 that is. Thank you again for all the help you gave me in selecting the unit. Jeanne Clayton

Can not get enough of this

I have now been riding my Falco for six months. The ride experience has been quite good. I have a HP Velotechnic and I have been using it for a number of long rides. So far the battery range has been 60+ miles. I have two batteries and I do not want to take a chance with just a single battery. I can say Falco is the best option when it comes to electric assist.

Great Kit! Clean to Install

Great kit. Very clean to install with minimal wires showing. Works very smoothly and quietly. Had some problems initially with the quality control but after some perseverance with Rakesh and Cameron over at Falco, we got it working exactly the way I wanted it. I am very happy with my purchase now, and I have two friends who after riding it, want one for themselves. I'm so happy I went for it. I ride so much more often now that I can go anywhere. I ride to work, to the gym, on errands, anywhere I would normally drive. It's been a life changer for me. I love it and I'm getting a great tan. Barry Barnett

77 Mile on a Single Charge

I did my 77-mile ride today (2200 ft. of climbing), and didn’t change to my spare until 72 miles!!! It hadn’t exhausted at that point, but the final 5 miles had lots of climbing and I didn’t want to risk getting stranded during a climb. At the 72 mile point I had averaged 12 mph and had climbed 1900 ft. That is the farthest I have ever gone on one battery. Wally Hertler
