How to Transport Your E-Bike Safely

E-bikes are a great way to commute, exercise, or just have fun. However, transporting them can be a challenge, especially if you own a larger model like the C3strom Astro Pro. In this blog, we’ll go over some tips on how to transport your e-bike safely, specifically for the C3strom Astro Pro model.

Choosing the Right Transportation Method

Before you start transporting your e-bike, it’s important to choose the right transportation method. Some popular options include:

Transporting E-Bikes by Car

If you’re transporting your e-bike by car, it’s important to choose the right transportation method and to properly secure the e-bike during transportation. Here are some tips:

1.Use a Hitch-mounted Rack or Truck Bed Rack

Hitch-mounted racks are a popular option for transporting e-bikes. They can hold multiple bikes securely and can be easily attached to the hitch of your vehicle. However, it’s important to make sure that the rack can handle the weight of your e-bike, especially if it’s a larger model like the C3strom Astro Pro. Truck bed racks are another popular option, especially if you own a pickup truck. They can hold multiple bikes securely and are easy to load and unload. However, it’s important to make sure that the rack can handle the weight of your e-bike, and that the bike is properly secured to prevent it from moving during transportation.

2. Place the E-Bike

Properly When loading the e-bike onto the rack or into the truck bed, make sure to place it properly to prevent it from moving during transportation. Use padding or foam to protect the bike and to prevent scratches or damage.

3. Drive Carefully

When driving with the e-bike, make sure to drive carefully and avoid sudden stops or sharp turns. Check the bike periodically to make sure it’s properly secured and hasn’t moved during transportation.

Transporting E-Bikes by Public Transportation

If you need to transport your e-bike by public transportation, it’s important to check with your local transportation service for any specific rules and regulations. Some public transportation services allow e-bikes on board, while others may have restrictions or require special permits. Make sure to properly secure your e-bike during transportation to prevent it from moving or causing any inconvenience to other passengers.

Transporting E-Bikes Safely with these Tips

When transporting an e-bike, it’s important to follow some safety tips to ensure that it remains in good condition and to prevent any accidents.

1.Properly Secure the E-Bike

It’s important to properly secure the e-bike during transportation to prevent it from moving or falling off the rack. Make sure to use tie-down straps or bungee cords to secure the bike to the rack or truck bed, and to double-check that everything is properly secured before driving.

2. Protect the Bike from Damage

During transportation, the e-bike can be exposed to various elements, such as dust, rain, or debris. To protect it from damage, cover the bike with a protective cover or use padding or foam to prevent scratches or other damage.

3. Check the Battery

The battery is an essential part of the e-bike, and it’s important to make sure it’s properly secured and in good condition during transportation. Remove the battery and store it separately during transportation, or make sure it’s properly secured in its designated compartment.

4. Follow Traffic Laws

When transporting an e-bike, make sure to follow all traffic laws, including speed limits and regulations regarding oversized loads. Be aware of your surroundings and avoid any obstacles or hazards on the road.

Transporting an e-bike like the C3strom Astro Pro can be challenging, but by following these tips, you can ensure a safe and hassle-free transportation experience. Remember to choose the right transportation method, properly secure the bike, protect it from damage, and follow safety guidelines to prevent any accidents. With these tips, you can enjoy your e-bike wherever you go.

C3strom Astro Pro

Welcome to my review of the C3strom Astro Pro Ebike. This exceptional electric bike is designed for off-road adventures and urban commuting. In this article, we will take an in-depth look at the features, performance, and specifications of the bike.

They offer a non-pro version of this bike that is slightly cheaper, but the only difference between the two is the battery. The pro version has a 20 amp hour battery and a 52-volt system, and the bike looks great with several issues that have been fixed, such as the shifter being upside down on the left-hand side. The bike performs fantastically and feels great to ride, with a top speed of 32 miles an hour, though the speaker notes that they were able to hit 35 miles an hour. The bike has a 750-watt rear motor, with a peak power of 1200 or 1400 watts, and includes features such as turn signals, a headlight, and a half-twist throttle. The bike also has a rear rack that can hold an extra battery, which is useful if the battery runs low while riding.

I will certainly discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this bike, as although it was given to me for free, the company has allowed me to express my honest opinions about it.

Tail part

Let’s start at the back of the bike, where you will notice the tail light located at the very top and far end of the bike, which I appreciate for its high visibility. However, I do feel that there was a missed opportunity to include a cool brake light in this area. Additionally, I do like the logo placement here, but I think it would have been even better if they had added some additional design elements. Moving on, we have the rear rack, which has holes that allow for the attachment of bags, which the company sells on its website. I particularly like these holes because they provide an option to attach an additional battery using a rail, enabling you to swap batteries for double the range.

You have some sleek fenders that are not commonly found on bikes. The fenders can be detached easily from a small section, so there’s no need to remove the entire piece from the bike. These plastic fenders are lighter than metal ones, which is beneficial since the bike already weighs around 92-94 pounds. The fender extends all the way to the front, providing full coverage and preventing any splashing while riding. The bike has a 750-watt Bafang+ motor, eight speeds at the back, and a Shimano Altus derailleur. However, in gear number one, the chain comes very close to the rim and tire, but it’s unlikely that you’ll be using that gear unless you’re starting from a stop. The bike has a standard crank and pedals with a logo behind them. Bolts are present that can be used to attach a water bottle holder or other accessories. The top section has air vents located behind the battery, but they are only for aesthetic purposes and do not serve any functional purpose. The screws used to attach them look cheap up close, but it’s not noticeable from a distance. The vents underneath the bike do not have any functionality and are just there to enhance the bike’s appearance.

Battery

Moving on to the battery, let’s start by mentioning that this particular electric bike comes with a 20 amp hour battery. However, if you opt for the non-pro model, the battery is slightly smaller. As you may already know, batteries are one of the most costly components of electric bikes, and you may need to replace or upgrade them to get more range. For instance, if you don’t want to carry the extra weight of a battery on the back rack, you might consider upgrading to a 24-amp-hour battery. This upgrade could add four extra amp hours and potentially provide you with up to 32 miles of range if you use only the throttle. However, based on my experience, I get around 26 to 28 miles of range on average, given my weight and type of riding. The terrain and the rider’s weight will significantly impact the bike’s range. Using the lowest pedal assist level, you could achieve up to 70 miles of range, but you’ll have to pedal the whole time, and the speed will be slow. Nonetheless, some people might find it useful.

To remove the battery, you need to use the keys on one side to unlock it, and then the keys must come out to avoid hitting the bar on the other side, which could bend them. Taking the battery out isn’t straightforward, and you need to be cautious to avoid smashing your fingers. If you have large hands, it might be a bit more challenging. Compared to other bikes, getting the battery in and out of this bike is a bit harder, but not impossible. Currently, I am eager to test if this other battery fits in the bike, although it won’t be used for our writing test. It turns out that it doesn’t fit, so upgrading to a slightly larger battery is not an option. Nonetheless, this is not the fault of the company; I simply wanted to experiment.

Front part

Moving to the front, the bike features a serial number on the frame, good suspension, and a unique fender design that complements the motorcycle look they are going for. Unlike most bikes, there is no headlight, but there is a large headlight up front, and a beautiful sequential turn signal. The rims of the bike have a cool motorcycle type of style, which is also evident in the mag wheels from Bafang, which have a Bafang logo. The fat tires, measuring 20 by 4.25, are the highlight of the bike. They are motorcycle-grade and very thick, making them less susceptible to punctures. The hydraulic brakes on both sides are excellent, and the cable management is decent, although some zip ties may be necessary to clean them up a bit. The headlight is high-quality, with a C3strom logo on top, but the beam is more focused and less wide than other headlights.

Seat

I would say that the seat on this bike is exceptional, perhaps one of the best seats I have ever sat on. It offers a lot of space due to the slight incline, providing ample cushioning for sitting on the bike. Now that we’re on the bike, let me show you that I have installed a mirror on this side. Adding a mirror to this bike is a simple process – all you need to do is remove the bar end cap, slide in the mirror, and tighten it up. The grips on the handlebars are quite nice, although I did notice that mine had loosened slightly. However, they are locking grips, so I can easily fix that. The shifter on this bike has been improved; the numbers now go in the correct order, unlike before when they were upside down. I understand why people were unhappy about this, as the shifter was originally supposed to be on the other side. But now, with the left-side shifter in place, that issue has been resolved.

Display button

Moving on to the button layout, we have the ability to access settings by holding this button down. The plus and minus buttons are used to adjust the pedal assist modes, and the on/off button is used to turn the display on or off. Speaking of the display, I must say that it looks fantastic. It’s all digital and very aesthetically pleasing. One of the things I love about this bike is that it has a memory mode, which means that it starts off in the mode that you last used. Some people may argue that this isn’t a good idea, especially if someone else tries to ride the bike and accidentally hits the throttle, but I appreciate not having to cycle through the modes every time I ride. Additionally, you can put the bike in assist mode zero, which disables the throttle, ensuring that the bike won’t move if you just want to keep the headlight on. Lastly, I like that the display cycles through various settings, such as Speed Max and average speed, which is a nice touch.

Light system switch

Moving to the right side of the bike, there is a headlight button, which I find very convenient, as well as the turn signal. The horn is also located here, but it may be too loud for some people, and it would have been better if there was a proper horn like the ones on other motorcycles. The half-twist throttle is also on this side, which is nice, although some people may find it uncomfortable due to its size. The negative button on the switch can be used to activate the walking mode, where the bike can be walked next to you. When the brakes are applied, the lights get brighter, which is a feature I appreciate. The bike also has a daytime running light, and to turn on the headlight, you need to press the button located here. You can also change the setting for the headlights in the app that comes with the bike. Additionally, there are high and low beams available.

Speed

Once you obtain this bike, it will only reach a maximum speed of 28 miles per hour. However, there is an app called C3strom that can be downloaded on your iPhone or Android device, which allows you to access the off-road mode and increase the speed. It is important to note that using this mode may not be legal in your local area, and it is advised to check the regulations beforehand. Despite the speed limitation, the bike has a smooth throttle and can still reach up to 27.6 miles per hour without any issues. Additionally, when pedaling, the bike performs exceptionally well, especially in the lowest gear. Although the motor may be loud, it does not impact the overall riding experience. Lastly, the bike has an attractive appearance when viewed in the sunlight.

Brake

The Astro Pro comes equipped with four-piston brake calipers, which provide exceptional stopping power, as we’ll demonstrate in the brake test. Despite having no rear suspension, the fenders fully cover the tires, and nothing appears to fly off. While it may not be the best bike for off-roading due to the lack of rear suspension, the seat compensates for it, absorbing all of the vibrations and making it very comfortable. The tires are not designed for off-roading but perform nicely on the road. The braking is fantastic, and if I were to replace the brakes on my Super 73, I would do it immediately. During the test, the bike reached high speeds, and the brakes performed incredibly well without causing any skidding. The bike traveled five miles on a single charge, and only one battery bar out of five was used.

Test

Now that we are riding with the wind, I am curious to know what our maximum speed could be. Let’s push the bike to its limits as we ride down this slight incline. With the help of the wind, we could potentially reach speeds of 30 or even 34 miles per hour. I will pedal to see if it makes any difference. Oh, I managed to hit 35 mph the other day when the battery was fully charged, but I also almost slipped out since this bike doesn’t have all-terrain tires. I advise you to be cautious if you plan on riding this bike on dirt. You can change the tires, but the ones it comes with are excellent. Riding in the dirt is mostly smooth, with just a few bumps here and there, and the bike handles them like a pro. However, I must mention that my hand hurts because the grip is too small, and the throttle is too big for my hand size. A thumb throttle would have been more comfortable, but it would not have fit because of the headlight switch, turn signal, and horn button. The grip could be slightly thicker to make it more comfortable.

I did not mention earlier that I wanted to adjust the preload on my bike when going off-road. However, this bike has a preload adjustment on one side and compression adjustment on the other. Adjusting the preload is important to ensure that there is no sag on the bike when you sit on it, and I felt a little bit of sag when I first got on the bike. So, I need to turn it up slightly. Although these adjustments are great, once you set them, you won’t need to adjust them again unless you gain or lose weight or someone else rides your bike. One of my biggest complaints about this bike is that it does not have a rear suspension. While I initially thought it was unnecessary, it would have been nice to have. The wheels look great but are not light, which contributes to the bike’s weight of over 90 pounds. If you want a lighter bike, you’ll have to consider something else. The 750-watt motor performs well, but I would have preferred the bike to weigh around 80 pounds instead of over 90. Another downside of this bike is removing the battery, which might not be a problem for some people. However, if you need to take the battery off to charge it in your house, it’s not as easy as most e-bikes out there, although it’s not too difficult. This inconvenience may be a problem for some people.

Another concern for taller riders is that when pedaling, their feet may come up higher than on other e-bikes, potentially causing discomfort. This seems to be the case with this particular bike, and riders over six feet tall may find it difficult to pedal comfortably. However, many buyers of this bike may not even pedal it and instead rely solely on the throttle. After riding for 10 miles, the battery has gone down one bar for every five miles, indicating a range of about 25 miles, which is similar to other bikes on the market. Although the bike has a 20 amp hour battery, it is still heavy, and riders should consider their location before purchasing. While there are a few minor drawbacks, such as the suspension, the pros of this bike outweigh them. It can be challenging to find reasons not to buy this bike, aside from the relatively high price point of $2,700 (previously priced at $2,000 during an Indiegogo campaign). If given the choice between this bike and the Super 73, and not planning to upgrade to a 72-volt system, the reviewer would choose this bike. The only reason to choose the Super 73 would be the larger community of enthusiasts and the potential for more significant upgrades.

In conclusion, the reviewed electric bike has several notable features, including a 750-watt rear motor, a top speed of 32 miles per hour, turn signals, a headlight, and a half-twist throttle. The bike also has a rear rack that can hold an extra battery, providing the rider with the option to swap batteries for double the range. However, the bike’s weight is around 92-94 pounds, and some of its components, such as the screws used to attach air vents, look cheap up close. Removing the battery is also a bit harder than on other bikes, and getting it in and out requires some caution. The bike’s fenders are lightweight and easy to detach, and the fat tires are motorcycle-grade and less susceptible to punctures. The hydraulic brakes on both sides are excellent, and the cable management is decent, although some zip ties may be necessary to clean them up a bit. Overall, this bike could be an excellent option for those who need a powerful and durable electric bike with a high top speed and a decent range. However, potential buyers should keep in mind its weight and some of its design elements that could be improved. This bike is a great choice for riders who want a motorcycle-style e-bike with many exciting features.

How to Avoid Pedals Hitting the Ground When Turning on an Electric Bike

The C3strom Astro Pro Moped-Style Electric Bike is a stylish and versatile e-bike that combines the convenience of a motorized bike with the style of a moped. However, its added weight and motorized components can make it more challenging to turn without hitting your pedals on the ground. Here are some tips for avoiding pedal strikes when turning on a C3strom Astro Pro.

1.Understand Your Bike’s Capabilities

The first step to avoiding pedal strikes on a C3strom Astro Pro is to understand its specific capabilities. This e-bike features a powerful 750W motor and 20-inch fat tires that provide excellent traction and stability. However, its weight distribution and turning radius may differ from other e-bikes. Consult the owner’s manual or talk to a bike shop expert to learn about your bike’s specific features that could impact your ability to turn without hitting your pedals.

2. Adjust Your Riding Style

Riding a C3strom Astro Pro requires a slightly different technique than a traditional bicycle. To avoid a pedal strike, make sure you’re shifting your weight and using your gears appropriately. Keep your weight balanced over the center of gravity and use your gears to shift to a lower gear before entering a turn. Take wider turns to avoid scraping your pedals on the ground. Plan ahead and anticipate turns to ensure you have enough space to make a safe turn without hitting your pedals.

3. Use the Throttle

The C3strom Astro Pro’s throttle allows you to accelerate without pedaling, which can be helpful when making turns. Instead of pedaling through turns, use the throttle to maintain your speed and coast through turns. This will help you maintain your balance and avoid putting too much pressure on your pedals. Of course, when the turn is tilted, pay attention to raising the pedal on the tilted side

4. Practice, Practice, Practice

As with any bike, practice is key to avoiding pedal strikes on a bike. Take your Astro to a safe area and practice turning at different speeds and angles. Experiment with shifting your weight, adjusting your line, and using your gears and throttle to find the right technique for your Astro.

Conclusion

The pedal stroke is a common problem when turning on any bike, but it can be especially challenging on an electric bike like the C3strom Astro Pro. However, with the right technique, adjustments, and practice, you can enjoy a smooth and safe ride on your e-bike, without worrying about scraping your pedals on the ground. Understanding your bike’s capabilities, adjusting your riding style, taking wider turns, using the throttle, and practicing will help you avoid pedal strikes and enjoy the full potential of your C3strom Astro Pro.

C3STROM ASTRO PRO! The best-looking Bike that looks like a Motorcycle

In this video, we’ll look at one of the most eye-catching bikes that we’ve evaluated, ASTRO PRO.

 

The overview of the C3strom Astro Pro

This time we’re talking about the C3strom Astro Pro. When you look at this bike, the only thing that comes to mind is a motorcycle. It’s a stunning bike with amazing style and flare, and I have to say that it even has the sensation of riding a motorbike. Let’s check out the specifications and go for a ride. The Astro Pro has 1400 watts of peak power and a 1040-watt Samsung battery that will provide you with power and, according to me, distance. It will allow you to travel up to 78 miles with pedal assistance and 32 miles on electricity alone. However, if you’re planning to use this bike in one gear, you should be aware that it doesn’t. It is going to go anywhere from five three to six three.

This item is made to be ridden on, and when you look at the bike’s overall design, it is similar to any other bike we’ve had on the channel up to this point. It has an eight-speed Shimano system, and it has a maximum weight load capacity of 330 pounds, which includes both your weight and any additional items you might want to carry. For those of you who are curious, the seat height is 30.6 inches. It has a four-piston hydraulic brake system in addition to an aluminum alloy frame. It also has a pedal assist mode obviously zero to five pedal assist modes, and it also has puncture-resistant tires which are going to give you that peace of mind when you’re on the road they’re fat tires so these are designed for traction. This bike has a gorgeous LED arrangement for turning signals and also for brake lights. Everything on this bike is really about attention to detail and you can see it just on the treatment of all the accents and even the LEDs. 

This bike is made for the outdoors and has the look to match. It has a pedal assist mode that, as you might expect, ranges from zero to five. It also has puncture-resistant tires that will give you confidence when you’re on the road. These are fat tires, so they’re designed for snow, sand, and dirt, so this is going to go anywhere bike. However, you’re talking about 20 inch 4.25 wide tires, and it does have an ipx6 rating.

 

Take a close look at the e-bike

Let’s take a closer look at this gorgeous bike. This is the C3stromAstro Pro. It essentially has a 750-watt powertrain that you can see right here in the back. However, that powertrain will really give you the ability to go pretty far. You’re looking at a 78-mile range, which will undoubtedly be with pedal assistance at this time. If you want to ride this completely electric without using any kind of pedal, you can expect a range of about 32 miles. However, it does have two classes because we said this is a class three e-bike, which means the top speed on the road will be 28 miles per hour. Charging time for something like this will take four to five hours, which is not bad given the capacity of the battery. This is a 1040-watt Samsung battery. Now that it has two classes, as we mentioned, this is a class three e-bike, so the top speed on the road will be 28 miles per hour and that will vary depending on your body weight and a lot of other conditions. So it’s going to be about wind and it’s also going to be the inclination but you can expect depending on your body weight and also the driving conditions to hit 28. Now, if you travel off-road, it has an off-road mode that will increase the speed to 32 miles per hour, which will be again very considerable. Even though we said that this was a 750-watt, kind of powertrain, you can look at a 1400-watt peak coming from this.

The other thing you’ll notice is this Shimano eight-speed gear system right here If you’re looking at pedaling you’re definitely going to be able to pedal with this and given the tire profile that you see there, which is again a 20 by 4.25 puncture-resistant tires, you’re going to be able to support around 330 total pounds on this bike. And the frame you’re viewing is made of aluminum alloy, which is pretty, really excellent. The other feature I’ll highlight on the back is that this does have hydraulic brakes; it has a really nice braking system. One thing you’ll notice here on the back is that the actual fenders are worry-free fenders. They are made out of plastic material, so you don’t have to worry about rust. More importantly, I really like how much coverage you get.

This is actually kind of like the Fender mud guard ends where the chain beneath the chain is in the bottom over there, which I think is pretty cool because it covers so much of the tire. This means that as you’re riding it if you’re using this as a last-mile device to get to the office, you don’t have to worry about yourself. These go really far out, so it probably is one of the furthest I’ve seen. It’s not intended for two people to sit here in the back, but if you want to bring some items with you, such as a laptop, a backpack, or a day bag, you can certainly do so. 

One more thing we’ll point out is that the chain system is one of the longest chain systems I’ve seen on a bike. It may be because of the frame itself, but did you notice how long this is? This is really, really long. I haven’t seen this on any other bike. But I really like the design. I like how open it is right here. Additionally, one of the things you’ll need to pay attention to is how much you’re leaning on this. I have a feeling that those pedals do go pretty far down, so I can see how you might be able to scrape those depending on which side you’re leaning to. This angle over here is better, and I think you’ll get a better idea of how much these fenders cover by how much they describe it.

This area will give you a better view of the front tire. As you look at here, the actual brake system, you get a really nice view of this like the attention to detail everything fits so well it’s kind of reminiscent of a motorcycle. Now, this is your four-piston brake system, a heavy duty brake system that I would say is more inspired by motorcycles than anything else.

This bike actually has turning signals, so let’s turn them on so you can get an idea of how the lighting system looks. Again, this is a really beautiful display. You can then see how it’s not just a blinking but rather that breathing experience as it travels to each one of the sides. You’ll also notice that these are your turning signals on each one of these sides. You’ll also notice on each one of these sides these are your turn signals, and you heard that right this bike actually has turning signals let’s turn them on all right. One of the cool things about this brake light is that it syncs with the turning signal so you don’t really have two different light systems, such as a brake light and then a left and right marker. The brake light then basically transforms itself and as you can see how it’s basically growing from right to left because that’s how my signal is pointing it’s actually converted this from being a brake to a turning signal in daylight people are going.

This is the bike’s battery, and it does have a switch here that will be your flip switch, and then here is your actual charging port, so go ahead and open this up so you can see what this looks like. The good thing about this is that this is an IP6 B5-rated bike. You can see it has a proprietary plug, but I’m fine with that.

Here’s another nice angle so you can see this and again it’s just the attention to detail you have here you have the logo also embedded into the frame but what you then have is this battery that tucks away really nicely. This entire piece comes out with the keys and I’ll show you where the key area is. Then you’ll notice here that there’s a really nice flaring that we’ll look at from a different angle not functional but definitely stylish.

The handlebar is again heavily influenced by motorcycles and has a wonderful, I would say, distance to it as well as a nice height. When riding this bike, I didn’t feel like I was leaning forward excessively; the handlebar is very much inspired by motorcycles and has a nice, I would say distance from it as well as a nice height. Your display is also very bright; it will give you a lot of information as you’re riding. You also have your memory area, which will be moving from function to function; this button right here is for that memory area. Your gear shifter is located at this on the side we’ll take a closer look at it. It’s a little different it’s on your left side, most gear systems are on the right but I’ve written many bikes that have it on the left side. It doesn’t take too much to get used to it and it’s also a twist gear system.

Despite the lack of a rear suspension system other than what is provided by the tires, the ride is incredibly comfortable. As you concentrate on the right handle, which is where you basically have your throttle so you have it again, you’ll notice that the saddle is extremely very soft. This is your throttle and it’s a twist throttle. I like how it’s positioned here, but one thing I would advise is to always set it to zero whenever you stop the bike or come to a stop. You don’t want to accidentally throttle this, especially if you’re just doing some light pedaling, so I like switching it to zero. Then you can have everything that’s right here now. You can also choose between your low beam and high beam here, as well as your turning signals, which we’ve already seen. In addition, you have an electronic horn that is powerful and not a toy horn, and you also have brakes up here, which include both front and rear brakes.

One of the things that I noticed in early reviews for this bike was that the numbers were upside down because it appears that they had used one that was designed for the right side. This has been corrected, so your numbers are listed correctly. I don’t really pay attention to this closely, but all you have to do is twist up and twist down, and the shifting system just responds, which is also really nice. You also have your power button. You also have a USB charging port, so if you want to charge your phone or, for example, a phone mount that is connected to the bike, you can do that from the bike itself. The key, which is not needed to start the bike because you have the power button on the side, is only used to remove the battery. I would go here and simply twist it, and I highly recommend you do that, especially if you’re going to park this somewhere.  

 

A bike or a motorcycle?

This is one of the best bikes we’ve seen on the channel so far, and as you can see, I’m pedaling. I actually have pedal assistance on, but I’m going to turn it off for a moment so that I could just do the human power piece. At this point, you can see me pedaling without any help at all. I also have it in very light gear, so there’s really not a lot of effort going into my pedaling, so I’m a little cheating. However, this is an eight-speed bike with two modes. It’s a class three bike with off-road modes that go up to 32 miles per hour. 28 miles is the standard mode up to 32 if you turn that feature on. I’ll go ahead back to power assist, and it kicked in right there really nicely; the rest of the review will be conducted on electric only, but you could see pedaling is pretty nice, and if I’m contributing with pedaling right now, it says I’m doing 12 to 32 miles per hour.

 

How will you feel when you ride C3strom Astro Pro?

Let’s talk about the bike first. It has a 750-watt powertrain but could go up to well over a thousand based on the technology that this bike has. I find that despite it having a non-adjustable saddle—you can’t adjust the saddle at all—it is very comfortable to pedal, at least for a short period of time. We’ll see how well it performs as we conduct some speed tests and some brake tests. It has a twist-dial gear system and controls here on the side where you can, for example, increase the power while using pedal system one and then navigate through the small menu mode. It also has hydraulic brakes, a striking headlamp that is similar to a motorcycle’s, as well as turning signals that you can control here on the side. It also has a hydraulic fork that gives you a really satisfying sustenance. So I’m telling you this because it feels really good in combination with the incredibly eye-catching but also incredibly comfortable 20 inches, four inches, little over four-inch, or four-and-a-quarter-inch broad tires.

Now the handlebar rides a little low, but you’ll notice that I’m not leaning forward and I’m not really having to go like this; I can actually lean normally, and it’s very comfortable. The pedals—you can see by my stride right now that I have pedal assist on—feel very natural. The gear system also feels very natural. And we already mentioned that it has turning signals.

Apart from the overall appearance, it does have one of the best mudguard systems I’ve seen in a bike in a very long time. If you look at the front tire and we’re going to turn here, you’ll notice where my foot is right here: the actual mud guards or the fenders go down pretty far low both in front and in the back they go extremely low which means it’s going to give you great protection so you won’t lift up a finger.  

 

The speed in different modes

Now what we’re going to do is I have pedal assist one on and I know that when I hit pedal assist one, I’m able to hit up to 12 miles an hour. You can see how nice that was by going to Pedal System Mode 2. Now it is 20 miles per hour, which is lipidosis three, and it is 22 miles per hour, which is going way above it. I don’t think I can pedal quickly enough for this, but you saw how nice that was. Let’s go ahead and go pedal assist four. We can go well above 25 miles per hour very.

Our top speed with the throttle is 18 miles per hour, however, as soon as I press the pedal, it accelerates slightly to 23 or 24 miles per hour. It only really requires changing the gear over here to eight on the side because 25.3 is the fastest I can manage, so I went ahead and put the bike in that gear. In order to test how well the off-road model or mode would perform in the present, I would also have enabled it. Wow, that’s pedaling at 28 miles per hour; my God, that’s 29 or 30 miles per hour. Wow, that’s amazing. Let’s do a speed test. Full Throttle is activated and we’re going to see how fast we can go. Right now we’re moving at a speed of 26 mph, 27 mph, 28 mph, and 29.1 mph. We just hit 30 and the speedometer telling me 28.29. So 30.5 is what this is reading, absolutely amazing.

My initial impression of C3strom pro astro

What are my initial impressions of this one? I love it, I like the ride, I love the look, it’s well made, it is super quiet right super quiet, and the pedaling is just really nice. Could it benefit from suspension? Probably. Anything could benefit from suspension whenever you have suspension in the back. However, I wouldn’t necessarily classify that as a major drawback. The gear system, whether it’s on the right or left side in this case, I’m digging it on that side. On this side is actually my throttle having them both separated. I’m okay with it. I’ve ridden other bikes that are like this too and I’ve gotten used to it. The display as you can see right there is enormous, and very visible even in this kind of daylight. I can see this as a daily commuter for school, for work which is depending on your distance. You can travel anywhere from 30 miles to more than 70 miles with this guy, depending on whether you’re pedaling or not. It’s pretty amazing, and you also have pointer-free tires, so those puncture-free tires will get you where you need to go.

Is the lithium battery a good choice for Ebike

The battery is one of the most crucial parts of an electric bike, which has grown in popularity in recent years. One of the most popular types of electric bike batteries is the lithium-ion battery, which provides an excellent balance between cost, weight, and energy density. To choose the best e-bike battery for your purposes, you must be able to distinguish between the several types that are available.

 

The C3strom Astro Pro Class-3 Ebike is a long-range e-bike that makes use of a premium lithium-ion battery. A SAMSUNG detachable lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 1040Wh, or 52V20Ah, is featured in this electric bicycle. SAMSUNG 21700 cells, some of the most cutting-edge lithium-ion cells on the market, make up Astro’s battery. These batteries have a higher energy density than other kinds of batteries, allowing them to store more energy per unit of weight. The electric bike now has a greater range, enabling riders to go further on a single charge.

 

There are a number of things to take into account while determining the various varieties of lithium-ion batteries. On the battery label or package, start by looking for the letters “Li-ion” or “Lithium”. The most popular form of lithium-ion batteries, li-ion batteries provide an excellent compromise between energy density, weight, and price.

 

The voltage and capacity of the battery are additional factors to take into account. The battery’s capacity and voltage work together to determine how much power it can produce and store, respectively. In general, the electric bike has more power and a longer range with higher voltages and capacities. To guarantee optimum performance, it’s crucial to select a battery that is compatible with your electric bike’s motor and controller.

 

Another crucial aspect to consider is the battery’s charging time. Depending on the capacity and charging pace, lithium-ion batteries can take anywhere from a few hours to several hours to fully charge. The SAMSUNG battery in the C3strom Astro Pro Class-3 Ebike may be fully charged in around 5 to 6 hours with a regular wall socket. Riders can swiftly recharge their batteries and resume driving thanks to this.

 

There are a few suggestions to keep in mind when it comes to maintaining and prolonging the life of your electric bike battery. First, try to avoid completely draining the battery. This might harm the battery and shorten its lifespan. Instead, maintain the battery’s charge between 20% to 80% and charge it frequently to keep it topped off. Second, keep the battery from excessive temperatures, which can harm it and impair its performance.

When selecting a battery for an electric bicycle, please notice the battery’s voltage, capacity, and charging time. A fantastic example of an electric bike that makes use of SAMSUNG 21700 cells and a high-quality lithium-ion battery with a 1040Wh capacity is the C3strom Astro Pro. You may get a longer range and greater performance from your electric bike by paying attention to battery maintenance with these suggestions.

How To Pump The Tires In 4 Easy Steps

Electric bikes have become increasingly popular in recent years, providing a convenient and eco-friendly mode of transportation. However, like any bike, electric bikes require regular maintenance to keep them running smoothly and safely. One important aspect of e-bike maintenance is ensuring that the tires are properly inflated. In this blog, we will outline how to pump the tires on a C3strom Astro Pro class 3 E-bike in 4 easy steps. C3strom Astro Pro is one of the fastest E-bike, and for this kind of hyperbike, maintenance is rather important, in order to make the bringing out its full performance.

Step 1: Check the recommended tire pressure

Before pumping up your C3strom Astro Pro’s tires, it is important to check the recommended tire pressure. The recommended tire pressure can typically be found on the sidewall of the tire itself or in the owner’s manual. It is important to note that different types of tires require different amounts of pressure, so be sure to double-check the recommended pressure for your specific tire type.

For the C3strom Astro Pro, the recommended tire pressure is typically between 17.5-35 p.s.i. This pressure range is ideal for the class 3 bike’s electric motor, which can reach speeds of up to 28 mph. Keeping the tires properly inflated not only ensures a smoother and safer ride but also maximizes the bike’s performance and battery life.

Step 2: Prepare your pump

Once you have determined the recommended tire pressure for your C3strom Astro Pro, it’s time to prepare your pump. Make sure your pump is compatible with the valve type on your bike’s tires. If your pump is not compatible with your valve type, you may need to use an adapter to make it work.

Before attaching your pump to the valve, ensure that it is properly assembled and ready to use. Some pumps require specific attachments or settings, so it’s always a good idea to double-check the pump’s instructions to ensure that it’s ready to go.

Step 3: Attach the pump to the valve

With your pump prepared, it’s time to attach it to the valve on your C3strom Astro Pro’s tires. If you have Presta valves, you will need to unscrew the nut at the top of the valve to allow air to flow through. If you have Schrader valves, simply attach the pump nozzle to the valve and press down on the valve pin to release any trapped air.

It’s important to ensure that the pump nozzle is properly attached to the valve to prevent air from escaping while pumping. If the nozzle is loose, it may result in inaccurate tire pressure readings or an improperly inflated tire.

Step 4: Inflate the tire

With the pump attached to the valve, it’s time to inflate the tire to the recommended pressure. Begin by pumping air into the tire and monitoring the pressure with a tire gauge. If your pump has a built-in gauge, you can use that to monitor the pressure. Otherwise, use a separate tire gauge to ensure that the pressure is within the recommended range.

As you pump, pay attention to the resistance of the tire. When the tire starts to become difficult to pump, it is likely to be close to the recommended pressure. Once you have reached the recommended pressure, remove the pump nozzle from the valve and replace the valve cap.

Final Thoughts

Properly inflated tires are crucial for a smooth, safe, and efficient ride on your C3strom Astro Pro class 3 E-bike. By following these four easy steps, you can ensure that your bike’s tires are properly inflated and ready for your next ride. Remember to check the recommended tire pressure before pumping, ensure that your pump is properly prepared and attached to the valve, and monitor the pressure as you pump. With a properly inflated tire, you’ll enjoy a more comfortable and efficient ride, while also reducing the risk of punctures or damage to your tires.

It’s also important to check your bike’s tire pressure regularly, especially if you use it frequently or on long rides. Tires can lose pressure over time, so it’s a good idea to check them before each ride, or at least once a week if you use your e-bike regularly. A tire that is underinflated can result in poor handling, decreased range, and increased wear on your bike’s components, while an overinflated tire can reduce traction and increase the risk of punctures or damage to your tire.

In addition to proper tire inflation, there are other important aspects of e-bike maintenance to consider, such as cleaning and lubricating the drivetrain, checking and adjusting the brakes, and inspecting the bike for signs of wear and tear. By maintaining your e-bike regularly, you can prolong its lifespan, improve its performance, and ensure a safer and more enjoyable ride.

Conclusion

Proper tire inflation is an essential aspect of e-bike maintenance that should not be overlooked. By following these four easy steps, you can ensure that your C3strom Astro Pro class 3 E-bike’s tires are properly inflated and ready for your next ride. Remember to check the recommended tire pressure, prepare your pump, attach the pump to the valve, and inflate the tire to the recommended pressure. With properly inflated tires, you’ll enjoy a more comfortable, efficient, and safe ride on your e-bike. Don’t forget to also maintain other aspects of your e-bike, such as the drivetrain, brakes, and overall condition, to ensure its longevity and safety.

C3strom Astro Pro – Motorcycle with Pedals | The Best E-bike of 2022

We got a new e-bike, and this e-bike is not your typical e-bike because it’s a cross between an e-bike and an e-motorcycle, and this is the C3strom Astro Pro. Let’s take a look.

As you can see, this is not your typical e-bike. At first glance, it appears to be a motorcycle or an electric motorcycle, but it is actually a class 3 ebike. It just so happens that they made the frame look really nice and they put some motorcycle-looking components over here, so let’s take a quick look at the frame.

 

The details of the C3strom Astro Pro

They did some little details here that actually look really cool. So C3 actually stands for class 3 electric bike. You got those little things right here. It looks really cool. I like that the frame they kind of feathered the welds over here and over here and over here making it look really nice. Despite being a hard tail, the seat is extremely comfortable and absorbs bumps. I think the fenders actually kind of custom made this because you’ll never see any fenders like this on the market. This is the first fender that I’ve seen that is being mounted like this. So I never own a motorcycle. And I really like it because it’s plastic so when you bump it it’s not going to fold it’s not going to bend.

We have a 750 watt bafang motor right here but don’t be fooled by that 750 watt because this thing can actually peak out up to 1400 watts so there’s actually two riding modes over here. Right now it’s on class 3 mode. It can go up to 28 miles an hour and it will peak out to 1200 watts. But if you unlock it to off-road mode, you can actually peak out up to 2000 watts, which is really cool. The motor can be a little loud, but that’s to be expected because you’re pushing that 750 watt motor up to 32 miles per hour. Let’s take a look at the front end, and as you can see, that’s a motorcycle headlight right there that illuminates if the bike is on this beam right here, so it’s really cool. Turn signal indicators on each side and the tires are actually 20 by 4.25, so it’s fatter than your normal 26×4 or 24×4. So it’s a little fatter, which means you have more grip when cornering, and everything matters. In fact, cornering on this e-bike is actually really good. Every time I ride it, I feel like I’m riding a moped or a motorcycle. As you can see, this e-bike is a hardtail, which means we have suspension on the front and nothing on the back. This doesn’t mean you can’t ride it off-road; you can, but you have to be careful because it can be a little rowdy.

 

The difference between C3strom Astro and Astro Pro

There is actually two version of this e-bike. This one is the C3strom Astro Pro and there’s another one which is called C3strom Astro. So it’s the non-pro version. The only difference there is this one has a bigger battery. And the non-pro version has a smaller battery, but the range is still pretty amazing.

I actually wish they put a little bit of suspension right there so I can do some off-road stuff. But you know maybe in the future because this is a full suspension it would be nicer because I can just replace the tires with off-road tires then there we go riding off-road. I think they want you to use this on the streets. It looks like a street bike right on the streets The rear 180 millimeter quad piston calipers are the same, and the brake lever looks like a motorcycle brake lever because they got the ball end right here.

 

The components of C3strom

It’s C3 branded on each side and what I really like about the brakes is they even have an oil level indicator is that what it is or this is just for statics again. So since we’re right here at the front of the bike, let’s check out the cockpit. Let’s turn on the bike. As you can see, I haven’t even taken this item off since I don’t want to get scratched. This is pretty interesting at the same time, and I think it’s smart because they put this rebel shifter right here, which means you have to do this when you’re shifting. I really like that they put this here because I don’t have to do this when I’m shifting. This looks like a motorcycle display right here, with five level assists, so right now I’m on level assist one, meaning zero one two three four five. It’s very simple to use the plus and minus buttons for the pedal assist, and right here we have a turn signal indicator. However, there isn’t an audible cue that you’re actually making a turn because right now I’m trying to turn to the left but you can’t see it here, and occasionally I forget that I’m riding around and I’m still trying to turn to the left.

Look at that. That is just so nice. turn to the left and look at that. I mean it’s just that thing looks awesome matter of fact let’s go to the back and you’ll see right here that looks like it looks very futuristic. This is the bike from the future. Let’s go back to the cockpit and right over here you have the low and the high beam. We have a horn and to turn on the headlight you just press the power button and let’s check out the headlight real quick. It’s not pretty bright because it’s super bright right now.

There’s a super cool feature on this bike that I almost forgot to mention: the cadence sensor on this crank set is super sensitive, unlike other e-bikes that require you to wait one to two seconds before the motor kicks in. For example, if I’m on pedal assist three, as soon as the crank rotates forward, the motor will instantly work, whereas other e-bikes require you to wait one to two seconds.

The seats are extremely comfortable; in fact, they are among my favorites. The motor is pretty powerful, the wheels are nice, you can corner really well, and look at that, I’m still amazed with this e-bike. I’ve been using this for two weeks now maybe the screen is simple but amazing, the cockpit is not overly crowded, so for the price it is really nice.

 

The price of C3strom

Let’s pause here for a moment and talk about the price of this e-bike because I know everyone is wondering how much it is because it looks pretty expensive and you’re probably expecting a lot of money for it, but right now the Astro Pro is only $1999  and the non-pro version is only $1799. The difference is that the pro version has a bigger battery, the non-pro version has a smaller battery, but it’s the same thing. So I can confidently say that the Astro Pro is the e-bike of 2022. Price performance is up there, and I think they’re pushing it. I don’t know how they did it for that price, but I think it’s a really good deal, so super 73. You guys better watch out because I have a big dog over here who might take over. 

 

The app of C3strom

So I’m here in the trails now because you know I want to show you guys that this e-bike can actually ride off-road despite the fact that it looks like a street bike and I almost forgot to tell you guys that this e-bike actually comes with an app. I don’t know if you guys can see that because of the glare, but if not I will just put like a screen recording here so you can change a lot of things here. A lot of information is currently visible and certain items can be changed. I can actually change the riding mode over here, and right now I’m in class 3 mode, which goes up to 28 miles per hour, but once I hit the off-road mode, there’s a warning here that says this e-bike will hit a maximum speed of 52 kilometers per hour or 32 miles per hour. Please note that off-road mode must only be used when the bike is connected via Bluetooth. Let’s stay on Class 3. The speedometer is showing that it’s actually going faster maybe because I’m using a 24 inch wheel but, actually, I used my GPS app and it’s showing 28 miles per hour max instead of 30 or 32. I’m going to put up my phone later with my GPS app so you guys can see. Here we go riding on the trails. I’m going to take it slow because this trail is currently very slick due to the fact that, as you may know, it’s summer, the leaves are dried, and the sand is particularly slick.

Brakes are awesome. When it gets super sandy, tires are just not able to keep up because you know I’m using road tires right now. So maybe if I put some off-road tires on this bike, that might be better. I don’t have to stop whenever I see cyclists like that because I got a motor on my bike. So off-road is fine, but when you hit a bigger bump, it can get a little rowdy, but it can handle it.

 

How fast the C3strom can be?

I’ve got my GPS app right here with me, so let’s see how fast we can go. Just full throttle at 28 miles per hour, but the screen says 34. I have a tailwind, which is probably why it’s going faster than 28 miles per hour all right. So let’s do pedal assist speed. On pedal assist one I get 11 miles per hour. Pedal assist two-20 miles per hour.  Pedal assist three-23 miles per hour. Pedal assist four-24 miles per hour. Pedal assist five-24 miles per hour.

I’m pretty sure you can hear me screaming in this video because the motor is actually pretty loud, possibly because it’s being pushed to 1200 watts peak, but does it bother me? Not really. Right now the wind is actually louder than the motor. But let me tell you the ride quality of this e-bike is awesome because I can turn sharp on this bike without problems. The bike control is decent, and it was definitely the nicest e-bike experience I’ve ever had.

To get your own C3strom!

It’s quite comfortable. The 750 watt motor is actually quite powerful. Imagine going up to 32 miles per hour in off-road mode and 28 miles per hour in class 3 mode. I really like the way this bike looks, it looks like a motorcycle- the headlight, the turn signal indicator, the tires, the frame design. I’ll be honest with you guys, I really like it. It performs really well, it looks really nice, the battery is long lasting. The Astro Pro is just a really nice bike.

***Area 13 Ebikes LIVE Review: Astro Ebike ***

You’re probably wondering why you’re seeing a blank screen for a live review, but that’s because what you just saw me playing is the C3strom Astro.

 

The overview of C3strom

We are looking at the 750-watt rear hub motor and I’ll get some close-ups on this as well. You’re looking at a 52-volt battery so a high-power battery is 15 amp hours. Now they have two versions of this bike, the Astro and the Astro pro, with the Astro Pro having a larger battery. Today is a beautiful day with temperatures between 76 and 75 degrees and a light breeze, just enough to keep you cool, so let’s get started. It’s a pretty cool bike, and I like it a lot. There are two modes: a class 3 e-bike mode and an off-road mode. For the off-road mode, there’s an app that you can download on your Android or iPhone. You can access a setting for c3 mode or off-road mode by logging into the app. I have already activated the off-road mode. it’s got the Samsung removable 20 amp hour battery 52 volts if you look at it. It looks very very similar to the blackbird battery that some of you blackbird owners have and let me bring it up to you guys that way you can get a real idea of the picture of this bike and its battery.

It has the master switch right here, the plug for your charger right there, and the key to release the battery on the other side, allowing you to safely remove the battery, store it, and travel with it. You’re looking at uh, specifications-wise for the tires, you’re looking at 20-inch-by-4.25-inch tires. These are more road tires, but there’s not much aggression, so this is something I would definitely use for cruising around town, along with other great features. You’ve got the half twist throttle right here on the right and you even have a horn you’ve got a high and low and blinkers and I’ll show those features as well on that. On the other side, you have your power display and your Revo shifter on the side which is a twist shift that is really unique, never really get a left-handed twist shift. It does have a rear rack that is compatible with 33 pounds of capacity so if you ever still needed to haul stuff you can still do it up to 33 pounds um they even have uh extra uh spare battery and um saddlebag adaptions that you can get with this as well. This bike itself is fairly heavy you’re looking at 92 pounds. So it’s definitely got weight to it, definitely a nice cruiser bike. It definitely got that moped-to feel to me when I grew up. According to the manufacturer, the Astro model has a range of 50 miles and the pro model has a range of 78 miles due to its larger battery, which is a 20 amp hour battery as opposed to a 15 amp hour battery. In class 3 electric bicycle mode, you’re looking at about 28 miles per hour; in the off-road mode, they say you get about 32 miles per hour. However, I have taken it on flat ground before, and I was able to get it to about 35 miles per hour.

I wore a helmet because the bike was so fast and cruising so well, and also because it has plastic fenders on the front and back. Seven-speed derailleur integrated frame integrated controller on the inside which peaks out about a 35 amp peak controller. For a bike like this with the long seat, it feels very comfortable I’ve been on a lot of similar bikes that we’ve test road on this and it seemed very hard that was actually a very comfortable ride.

Let’s see what else we’ve got: a 3.5-inch display with USB, a four-amp charger, and approximately four to five hours of charging time. This is a good off-road,  moped-type bike, and the 750-watt rear hub provides roughly 80-newton meters.

 

Question 1: Can you show a close-up of the gear shifter?

This is the first time I’ve seen a left-handed gear shifter, and it’s quite unusual. I will demonstrate the left-hand gear shifter because you will notice something that also confused me, so let’s get a close-up of that. As you can see, this gear shifter is a twist throttle, but the numbers are upside down, so technically this gear shifter would be made for a right hand because it would be flipped to where it would be on the other side, but obviously, we have a lot going on on the other side, especially with the half twist throttle and you’ve got all your lights, blinkers, horn, etc. on that. So that was a very interesting and fun thing to see on that bike.

 

Question 2:would it be easy to add an extra battery?

Yes, according to the manufacturer, this back rack has the adaptability, as stated previously, to accommodate not only a saddlebag option but also a secondary rear battery option. I did not receive any specific weight limit numbers, but we will include their link and request more information from them regarding their weight limit. I didn’t get any of that unfortunately. I said the back rack will hold about 33 pounds roughly. I’m 200 pounds so I would say roughly it could probably handle maybe about 250 to 275 pounds at the most. It is the 6061 alloy frame or aluminum frame, so keep in mind that’s just a rough estimate.

 

Question 3: is there an ignition key on the bike?

No. You don’t need to turn a key to turn it on. There is a master switch on the battery very similar to our blackberry batteries. The key would be more of an aspect of this site right here to unlock it too, to remove the battery if you wanted to store it in a room temperature feel as well as travel. So it’s not getting tossed and rattled on the bike and everything else locks in just like almost every other bike.

 

Question 4: what is the maximum speed of the electric bicycle? 

As I mentioned previously, there are two different settings. You’re looking at the c3 setting or the c3 mode, which is 28 miles per hour standard stock without doing anything in the app unlocking anything, and then you must download the app in order to record your trails. If you wanted to record your speeds, distance, etc., it also provides an off-road option. The off-road option allows you to increase the top speed from 28 miles per hour to roughly 32 miles per hour. I almost reached 35 miles per hour on flat ground, so it was a really nice and fast range. Top speed mass I’m getting a new segway scooter soon, but this one looks cool, and it’s actually very cool; I like it. It’s a very pleasant ride It has many features that I did not expect it to have. It weighs 92 pounds (42 kilograms). It has a range of approximately 50 miles, but the pro model offers 78 miles of range. So, the standard Astro has a range of 50 miles, while the pro model has a range of 48 or 78 miles and a top speed of approximately 32 mph. The braking on this you have four pistons, it appears to be hydraulic braking on it. That’s a good thing. A lot of bikes that are similar to it do not to me seem to have hydraulic brakes. I think maybe with the power that this has and the speed it can go , the hydraulic brakes definitely gives it that power to come with 180 millimeter brake rotors. 

 

Question 5: how many teeth the chain ring has?

The chain ring has 56 teeth. I’ll also discuss some of the features that it has, such as the lights. Let me turn the bike around because it has the blinkers, the active brake light, and the active tail light, and we’ll get some close-ups of those as well. And i’ll get some nice close-ups of what that tail light entails; hopefully, the sun will illuminate it and you’ll be able to see how it looks; so you’ve got braking power right there; uh, if you want to do right turn signals, you’ve got your right signal right there; and you’ve obviously got your left signal right there; your horn sounds very electronic; and let’s see if I can get a close-up of this digital display as well. The seat feels like it has memory foam because it’s a lot more comfortable than a lot of other seats I’ve ridden on. The standover height is approximately 30 to 31 inches.

 

Question 6: introduce the wattage.

It is about a 750-watt rear hub e-bike motor Bafang by the way as well. So you’re looking at probably a peak of about 1100 at the most. It scoots though like I said I got it up to 32 miles per hour with ease. I can get up to that hill with no problem cruising. 

 

Question 7: can the turn signals do four ways for like emergency?

From what I can tell, it does not have a hazard light function. It’s funny that you asked because I was wondering if it would activate all four lights simultaneously if you were pulled over and wanted to be visible to people that are maybe driving by or riding by in there so they don’t hit you unfortunately it does not appear to have that feature it’s either one left or right, so maybe you could incorporate with your helmet or flashing battery operated light if needed. So that would be my opinion you could do.

 

Question 8: are the cables long enough to add handlebars with a higher rise? 

They do go right here into the frame right off the bat straight from the top of the handlebars that would be tough. I don’t know if even an adjustable stem will work on this uh definitely worth experimenting and trying. You have a little bit, but these are already fairly tight and wrapped and everything else. So I’m not sure if you’re going to have much play with it to bring it up a little higher. I know that’s a disadvantage because you don’t have an adjustable seat so do you think we could raise up the handlebars a little bit? We’d have to experiment with that.

 

Question 9: does it have a pedal assist?

It still has a pedal assist. It still has pedal assist and throttle. My knees feel like they’re hitting my chin as I pedal. I do feel the pedal assist engage once more, but I’m so awkward when I do it that it feels like I’m hitting my wrist every time I pedal. I mean my knee my legs are on my down truck are still almost at a 90 degree angle so to me for pedaling on me, I would not use this as a pedal bike for me. My upstroke right there is not very comfortable. However, I am neither the tallest nor the shortest, so someone of a different size may be able to handle it a little bit better.

 

Question 10: what is the range of it?

I know some people are getting different ranges. Some people get better, while others get worse. To answer your question about the range, it’s extremely difficult to provide a justification for what an accurate range is. Given all the variables involved, including terrain, the rider, how much throttle is being used, how much pedaling is being used, what pedal assist you’re on, as well as the bike itself and the size of the battery, etc., all have an effect on the range, which is why it’s so difficult to provide an accurate estimate because everyone is different, every train is different and every bike is different. So there is never a rough right accurate estimate on that.

 

Qusetion11:does it have a 16-by-16-by-16-inch food delivery bag? 

It doesn’t appear to have any attachments or mounts for a front basket, and with the headlight and turn signals in the way. I’m not sure if a front basket would be very useful.

So that is the C3strom Astro. They have two model links. Please go to their website and pick yours up.

If we just look at the main statistics, these e-bikes are very similar. But we can see that the C3strom Astro Pro has a higher motor peak, power, and battery performance. It’s also cheaper.

 

Electrics

This part is the core of the electric bike and is also the best part to know the bike’s performance. Let’s take a look at this comparison data.

  C3strom Astro Pro SUPER73-S2 Comments
Battery 1040Wh (52V20Ah) SAMSUNG 21700 cells 960Wh (48W20Ah) As for range, the SUPER73 S2 uses Panasonic’s 960WH (48v 20Ah) battery, which has a range of about 40-75 miles. Using only level 1 pedal assist, a range of up to 75 miles can be achieved. The C3strom Astro Pro, powered by a Samsung 1040WH (52v 20Ah) battery, offers a range of up to 78 miles with level 1 PAS, which further enhances the riding experience.
Motor BAFANG 750W HENGTAI 750W  In terms of power, the C3strom Astro Pro uses the BAFANG 750W rear hub motor for stronger performance and more guaranteed quality. It has a peak power of 1400W and a top speed of 32mph. The motor delivers fast acceleration and 80Nm of torque, enough to climb hills and ride over loose terrain. The SUPER73 S2, with its branded motor, has a peak power of 1200w and a top speed of 28mph.
Pedal Assist 5-Level 5-Level Both models feature the same pedal assist level, offering riders different riding experiences and allowing them to adjust the pedal assist level according to their preferences.
Charger 52V 4 Amp 52V 3 Amp C3strom Astro Pro is equipped with a 4A fast charger that fully charges your battery in just 4-5 hours. This allows you to ride all day long. SUPER73 S2, on the other hand, comes standard with a 3A charger that takes 6-7 hours to fully charge the battery. The charging innovation of C3strom Astro Pro is now more in line with the industry development level.
Display LCD with mobile app integration LCD Display The C3strom Astro Pro has an LCD and app integration system that shows you all the information, so you don’t have to scroll to find what you need. The SUPER73 S2 also has an LCD screen, but it doesn’t look as high-end and has a very simple interface.
Lights integrated lighting system Headlight and Taillight The C3strom Astro Pro also has an excellent integrated lighting system. Headlight with 130 lux, including high beam, close-up light, turn signal, and LED tail light. This makes it much safer to ride at night. The C3strom Astro Pro is also equipped with a horn to warn nearby pedestrians to keep you safe on city streets. The SUPER73 S2 is only equipped with headlights and taillights. The C3strom Astro Pro impresses with its attention to detail and thoughtfulness.
USB Charger Yes No The C3strom Astro Pro has a built-in USB slot hidden beneath the buttons on the display – a great convenience for riders who do not have to worry about their phone giving up the ghost while driving. However, the SUPER73 S2 is not equipped with this feature and cannot handle some emergencies.

 

Mechanics

Next, we looked at the configuration parts of the bike.

  C3strom Astro Pro SUPER73-S2 Comments
Brakes 4 Piston Hydraulic 2 Piston Hydraulic The C3strom Astro Pro uses a four-piston brake system commonly used on motorcycles, which effectively prevents disc brake rotors from swinging and significantly reduces noise. The effective position of the brake pads can also be adjusted as needed to stabilize pressure and maximize riding safety. The SUPER73 S2 uses the standard two-piston hydraulic braking system found on many similar electric cars. In terms of safety and braking, the C3strom Astro Pro’s braking system is superior.
Gearing 8-Speed Shimano Altus Single Speed The C3strom Astro Pro is powered by a Shimano Altus 8-speed transmission, which greatly improves the bike’s adaptability to different terrains and enhances the riding experience. The SUPER73 S2 is only available with a single-speed transmission, which means that uphill rides are more strenuous and less exhilarating.
Suspension Fork Air Suspension Fork Air Suspension Fork Both e-bikes come with the same type of front suspension with locking features. The lock feature allows riders to adjust the front fork to better suit the terrain they are riding. And the C3strom Astro Pro has more mileage than the SUPER73 S2, which means riders have more riding room to absorb bumps.

 

Other Components

Last but not least, it’s time to talk about some parts of the electric car itself. These features will improve your cycling experience and bring you lots of inspiration and a good mood.

  C3strom Astro Pro SUPER73-S2 Comments
Frame Aluminum Alloy Aluminum Alloy While both have aluminum frames, the C3strom Astro Pro uses today’s industry-leading design techniques. Its lines are smooth and do not lose hardness, the overall weld is tight, and you can hardly find a gap. The inner track makes the bike more elegant and tidy. However, the welding of the frame of the SUPER73 S2 is not ideal. It has obvious weld marks. The external wiring is making it look bloated and messy.
Carrying Capacity 330 lbs 325lbs With a maximum load of up to 330 pounds, the C3strom Astro Pro can carry more gear.
Tires Kenda K-Shield BDGR The SUPER73 S2 features BDGR tires that combine motorcycle and bicycle tire construction to improve traction, reduce road noise and increase stability. The C3strom Astro Pro uses more rugged, puncture-resistant tires. The integrated Kenda K-Shield tire liner consists of a layer of aramid and ceramic particles under the inner tread of the tire to protect the tire from sharp objects and any type of puncture.
Fenders Front and Rear Rear The C3strom Astro Pro has front and rear mudguards so you can ride on rainy days without worrying about splashing. The SUPER73 S2 does have front and rear fenders. But the front fender, which is only half wrapped, is not there to keep mud and water out but is more of an adornment for beauty.
Saddle Silicone filling No Silicone filling The C3strom Astro Pro seat is extra filled with silicone, which is unusual in most of its models. It provides good cushioning and shock absorption for a better riding experience. The SUPER73 S2 saddle isn’t filled with silicone, which means it can be tiring on long rides.

 

Conclusion

We have found that the C3strom Astro Pro and the SUPER73 S2 are quite different in detail. But we have made some points rigorously and fairly, rather than taking sides. The C3strom Astro Pro has unique features, from an integrated lighting system to advanced body welding technology, that makes it more competitive. So which bike do you like better after reading this article? If you have a different opinion, please feel free to leave a comment.

What Affects The Speed of E-bikes

Electric bikes, or e-bikes, have become increasingly popular in recent years as a convenient and eco-friendly mode of transportation. With the advancements in technology, e-bikes are becoming faster and more efficient. The speed of an e-bike is determined by a number of factors, including the motor, battery, and design of the bike.

In this article, we will explore what affects the speed of an electric bike, with a particular focus on our brand C3strom and our Astro Pro model, a Class 3 e-bike that is known for being fast and efficient.

Motor

The motor is the most critical component of an e-bike when it comes to speed. The motor is what provides power to the wheels and determines how fast the bike can go. The Astro Pro features a high-performance motor that is capable of producing up to 1400 watts of power. This powerful motor allows the Astro Pro to reach speeds of up to 32 miles per hour in OFF-ROAD mode, making it one of the fastest e-bikes on the market.

Battery

The battery is another critical component of an e-bike when it comes to speed. The battery provides power to the motor, the size and type of battery can affect how long the bike can go and how fast it can go. The Astro Pro features a high-capacity battery that can provide up to 80 miles of range on a single charge. This long-range battery also contributes to the bike’s fast performance, as it can provide the motor with the power it needs to reach high speeds.

Design

The design of an e-bike can also affect its speed. A bike that is designed for speed will have a lightweight frame and aerodynamic features that reduce wind resistance. The Astro Pro features a sleek and modern design that is optimized for speed. The bike has a lightweight 6061 aluminum frame that reduces the overall weight of the bike, making it easier to accelerate and reach higher speeds. The bike also features aerodynamic handlebars and a streamlined seat that reduce wind resistance, allowing the bike to travel faster with less effort.

Class of e-bike

The speed of an e-bike can also be affected by its class. E-bikes are classified into three main categories: Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3. Class 1 e-bikes are limited to a top speed of 20 miles per hour, while Class 2 e-bikes are limited to a top speed of 28 miles per hour. Class 3 e-bikes, like the Astro Pro, can reach speeds of up to 28 miles per hour but also come with additional safety features, including a speedometer and pedal assist system. The Class 3 designation makes the Astro Pro a fast e-bike that is suitable for commuting, touring, and recreational riding.

Comparison with Super 73 S2

When it comes to fast e-bikes, the Super 73 S2 is often mentioned as one of the top competitors to the Astro Pro. The Super 73 S2 is known for its stylish design and powerful motor, which can provide speeds of up to 28 miles per hour. However, there are some key differences between the S2 and the Astro Pro that make the Astro Pro a superior choice in terms of speed and performance.

One difference between the Super 73 S2 and the C3strom Astro Pro is the battery capacity. The S2 features a 960 Wh battery, while the Astro Pro has a 1,040 Wh battery. The larger battery in the Astro Pro provides more power and allows for a longer range, making it a more practical choice for long commutes or extended rides.

The design of the bikes is also different, with the Astro Pro featuring a more aerodynamic and lightweight design that is optimized for speed. The S2, while stylish, has a bulkier and heavier design that may not be as efficient when it comes to speed.

Overall, while both the Super 73 S2 and the Astro Pro are fast e-bikes that offer a fun and convenient way to get around, the Astro Pro has several advantages that make it a better choice for those who are looking for speed and performance.
