    Hey Mark,
    thank you for your thorough review of the F720 . I bought one around 2 months ago – have done over 1,500 kms. I use it to commute to work and anywhere I need to go except long distances and to get a load of groceries. I have been getting around 70kms from the battery. A couple of things that other buyers should be aware of – the tyres are quite thin so they are puncture prone (had one after a week 8 kms from home – not fun as the bike is heavy) the shop I bought it from had just got in some heavy duty tyres and they have been great – only problem is the back mudguard does not fit now and I have to keep the back tyre at a pressure of 20 (30 is the recommendation) other wise it rubs against the frame. I am 70 kgs so for someone heavy that may not be enough pressure in the tyre. Also means it kicks up water and mud at the back now.
    The other thing that recently happened is it started making a high pitched sound intermittently with some associated flat spots in the power – I discovered the battery was moving as the screws had loosened that holds the arm the battery is locked into (so the arm was sliding up and down slightly). It is a flimsy arrangement so needs checking regularly. When I tightened the screws securing the battery the sound stopped . Other than that I love the bike – it gets lots of comments and folds neatly into my storage cage – I am in a third floor apartment with no lift.
    cheers Kevin

    Hey Kevin,

    Thank you for taking the time to read the review and share your experience! That is unfortunate to here about the tires, so far I have had good luck with mine and no flats, fingers crossed it stays that way until they need to be replaced. After adding a few hundred more miles, I did experience the loose screws as you mentioned and used some Loctite thread-locker on them once and they have stayed in place ever since. It didn’t appear that was done at the factory and was definitely an over site on ET. CYCLES part, especially considering the huge amount of vibration that happens when riding bikes. I hope that you continue to enjoy riding the F720.

    Thanks again for sharing your experience, it is always great to get more input on the products we test and review.
    -Mark
