This review is for the 2018 Trail Maker Elite.. I bought this Ebike in late Oct. 2017.. It was my 1st Ebike venture.. This bike is Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y throughout. I have been dealing with mountain bikes since 1983, so I'm pretty savvy when it comes to components, frame construction, suspension details, etc. However, electronics on bicycles is another matter (motor/watts/volts), but I will learn as I go. I was absolutely blown away by this Ebike. The ONLY "downside" to it is the lack of more power if you need to deal with lots of ups and downs (hills/mountains/etc). I have also posted a review on the Amazon website titled " "A very long review about a Quality E-Bike" by "Bobster" on Oct.30, 2017. There is also a review posted on the X-treme Sedona (2018 model) on Amazon: "A very nice e-bike indeed" by "Bobster". (Dec.5, 2018). The Sedona is my newest purchase.
I bought this for my son to be able to bike to his work and back, he loves it, seems to get quite a bit of riding on a recharge.
My wife bought me this bike as a an anniversary gift, she must love me a lot, makes my long rides with her more fun.
I grabbed this bike because of the price and specs, seems to be reasonable, and it performs great!
I'm a fan, my first ebike, the best is when you ride with friends and they all want to be riding your bike, lol.

This is a serious piece of machinery designed for use by adults in fully controlled and safe environments. As the purchaser/owner of the bike, you are responsible with the task of keeping the rider safe at all times. Your bike has great capabilities and can grow with the skills of the rider to high levels, but it is imperative that the responsible adult is in control during the entire learning process and gives full attention at all times.
Most electric bicycles can be ridden where other non-motorized bikes are allowed. But it is your responsibility to check and obey all local laws. Your electric bicycle may only be ridden in safe areas where all laws are being followed and all required permissions are given.
Because it is impossible to anticipate every situation or condition which can occur while riding, Journey Bikes LLC makes no representation about the safe use of the bicycle under all conditions. There are risks associated with the use of a bicycle which cannot be predicted or avoided, and which are the sole responsibility of the rider.
YOU'LL ALSO NEED TO DO THE FOLLOWING PREPARATIONS BEFORE RIDING YOUR ELECTRIC BIKE:
If you don't feel capable of performing these pre-ride checks, then you must take your new electric bike to a certified bicycle mechanic at your local bike shop to perform these necessary pre-ride checks. If you fail to properly perform these pre-ride checks, you are putting your life at risk. An electric bike is not a toy, it is a strong and fast machine, and without proper care taken during assembly, tuning and riding, it can be dangerous. You are responsible for all assembly, tuning and maintenance cost incurred from any bike shop.
Battery Use Risk
Improper use, care, or charging of a lithium Ion battery could cause serious injury to the product, property, or persons. If the battery is tampered with or damaged in any way, do not use the product and find a hazardous waste removal center immediately.
It is the responsibility of the purchaser to maintain safe storage and treatment of the battery at all times.
Only use the charger that came with your product. Just because a charger fits in your device doesn’t mean that it is safe to use.
Plug the charger into an outlet that is grounded.
Keep your device out of extremely high or low temperature locations. Do not place the battery in direct sunshine, or store the battery inside cars in significant hot or cold weather.
Do not expose the battery to water or allow the battery to get wet.
Do not continue charging the battery if it does not recharge within the specified charging time. Doing so may cause the battery to become hot, explode, or ignite.
Do not use your device if you notice any damage to the battery after dropping it. If you suspect damage to the battery, email our support or dispose of the battery and order a replacement.
Do not disassemble or modify the battery in any way. Modifying your electronic significantly increases the risk of explosion.
Please reference your bicycle's Owner’s Manual which provides important information regarding safety and maintenance of your electric bike. Please read through the entire manual prior to operating your machine and save the manual for future reference.
If at any time you have questions or need assistance with the maintenance of your product, you may contact us at email@example.com or you may contact the manufacturer using the information included in the Owner’s Manual.
