”  I Cant Wait To Test Ride My Brand New Tern Vektron Q9 Electric Bike” Oscar

Customer Satisfaction

My test route took me along a blustery Wellington waterfront, followed by climb up Mt Victoria. The first thing I noticed when I got on the saddle was the upright riding position.

They are stable and comfortable. The fat 20″ tires reminded me of riding a BMX bike in high school.

They are also pretty flat resistant thanks to the Schwalbe Big Apple tires

The bike never flexed too much, even when I was carrying a 28-pound kid on the back and out of the saddle pedalling.

 

Advantages of Tern vektron 2018

 

The bike is well thought out. From the wrapping of the front cables to the built-in bungee on the rear rack.

It comes with durable tires, fenders, rear rack, and lights already installed.

Tern uses 20-inch wheels to position the weight lower to the ground and keep the bike from becoming top-heavy while hauling cargo on the integrated rear rack, which is now longer and lower.

It has diagonally mounted battery.

It’s a bike that disguises its heft well and folds up to stand on its rear end for a portable package that goes wherever you do.

2018Tern Vektron S10 have smaller wheels than their adult counterparts. This means that you will never pass a guy with big ordinary wheels over a distance, you can take off as if you were entering Hyper-Space.

 

Disadvantages Tern vektron 2018

 

Weight: The Tern vektron 2018 will be a little heavier. Additional hinges can add weight to the bike.

Obstacles on the road: They have small wheels – usually 12 to 20 inches. This puts you at a disadvantage when navigating on rough terrain.

Price: the Vektron is super expensive than traditional bikes that have the same specifications. Although you can get a folding bike at the same price as a traditional bike, chances are you’ll get a lower quality bike.

The bike is unaffordable for most riders, especially when considering other folding electric bikes on the market.

the design looks so outdated with visible engine and battery. It will make the bicycle bulkier and prone to damages. Most modern e-bikes will integrate the system into the frame and try to make it less pronounced.

Common Questions

Will the bike fit me?

The Vektron fits a wide range of riders thanks to a quick-adjust seatpost, quick-adjust handlebar stem, and a low-step frame. It takes only a few seconds to adjust the bike to resize the bike–without tools–so that it fits you.

What’s the load capacity?

The total load capacity is 105 kg (230 lb), including you and your cargo.

How long does it take to fold the Vektron?

10 seconds or less

How many speeds does the Vektron have?

10 speeds.

Can I ride it during winter?

Absolutely, but if you ride in below -5⁰ C (23⁰ F), you’ll get less support from the motor, and it could potentially shut off temporarily. During winter months, particularly on days below 0⁰ C (32⁰ F), we recommend charging and storing the battery at room temperature, and then inserting it into the bike immediately before riding

Final verdict

Bosch doesn’t make the e-bike; they just worked with Tern to incorporate the system into their folding bikes with some frame modifications. The system includes the electric motor installed on the drive train, the battery mounted on the seat tube and the system controller on the handlebar.
