For a two day shipping time for the Nebula N1, I would believe it is existing stock in a warehouse either in NJ or in CA. If it was manufactured per order and shipped from China in a sea container it would be better part of half a year with current shipping delays, especially on the left [west] coast.

It does have comparable specs other than the battery compared to the $2250+tax and shipping Sondors x. The sondors has a 25A max controller and better head unit and 17.5A 48v battery. I think costco had it down to $1899. Half the price for the turboant.

$10 cheaper than the last deal back in December… lot of complaints on that thread so make sure you take a look before deciding on purchase.

Quote from ThriftyHalibut921 :
Any idea on how long shipping takes?
I bought the TurboAnt N1 (Similar to the T1 except all internal battery and slightly better controller) last month and it took 50 hours (NJ to MD), just over two days - but I suspect that is on the faster side of what most have experienced. You can see more of my posts at https://slickdeals.net/f/15487822-750-off-turboant-nebula-n1-fat-tire-all-terrain-electric-bike-1-099-free-shipping-local-inventory-fast-delivery-1099.

They could do better packaging, some of the protectors came damaged; however, most of the bike was in good shape. Take photos before you open the box. Only issue I had was the front fender bolts were too short (6mm-1 x 16mm) and had to buy 6mm-1 x 20 mm (https://www.lowes.com/pd/Hillman-...t/50088782) to install the fender.

It will arrive as a Class II ebike (limited to 19.8 mph) and you will need to unlock it to get Class III - 25 mph (40 kph). To unlock the class III speed, press [+]&[-] followed immediately with [-]&[i] which has the speed and tire size menus, speed is in kph with a max of 40 [not 45 which is 28 mph], and tire size is in inches.

While in Class II real life range on hills is about 20-22 miles in PA5, in Class III it is about 16-18 miles with +/- 260 lbs of rider and gear, it is nowhere near
claimed amount on their website. Also with this weight, if you do a long gentle climb (where the motor and speed is less than maximum the motor will cutout - likely from overheating even in cool weather) -- TurboAnt tech support has yet to get back to me on this issue after they said they forwarded the information to the motor manufacturer.

To get a better speed read out, even though it has 26 inch wheels, set it to 28 inch for a closer to true speed reading as it uses the rolling circumference to figure out your speed and with 4" on top of 26" you should be using 28/29".

It does NOT have bottle bosses, nor can you buy a rear rack from TurboAnt. However, I did find a rear rack that will fit perfectly from https://www.hjmbike.com/products/toury-rear-rack that took a little over two weeks to arrive. You will also need the following 4-pin 80cm cable to move the tail light from the seatpost to the back of the rear rack at https://smile.amazon.com/gp/produ...th=1&psc=1. (Please note that the front rack from HJM bike, RadRover, and Himiway sites will not fit the front mount)

I also reworked the cable management and fabricated (aluminum cold-cut metal work) bottle holders and folding lock holder that attaches to the front mount - let me know if you guys & gals that are handy need a parts/tool list for this 'hack'.

The battery alone is over $500. What are you looking at for a better price?

I've been obsessed with ebikes for a couple of years now. After exhausting evaluation of the market/features, this got my stamp of approval for my little brother so we ordered one. You're not going to find components of this caliber (good middle of the road) at this price point, unless you order directly from China.
I really like the RAD and Ariel rider bikes. For this price you can get an AR rideal, but you will be missing:
Fat tires
Adjustable Front shocks
Included fenders

This turboant is however comparable to the RAD Rover 6- which comes in at 2x this bikes discounted price.

Most Chinese made direct to consumer 4" Fat Tire, 750W, 48V e-bikes with similar specs (low end brand name parts) are +/- $1500 which makes this a decent value for the money. However, being on the cheaper end for this style of bike, I find their tech support rather lacking -- I believe this is where TurboAnt is skimping as they still have not addressed an intermittent motor issue that I have given them two videos that a new bike should not have (ridden for a week when I first notified them of the issue).

People commenting on this being too expensive must know nothing about electric bikes. I already own 11 electric bikes (ranging from a budget Jetson Bolt Pro from Costco to a dual suspension mountain bike I converted to AWD with a mid-drive BBSHD and a front hub direct drive). This is the best price you will find for a bike with these components. I've converted 7 bikes and I prefer mid-drive motors (Bafang BBSHD & Tongsheng TSDZ2). I only used hub drive motors in addition to a mid-drive motor for my AWD conversions. You can't build a similar bike for anywhere near these prices. I bought the Nebula N1 and the Ranger R1 last month for $1099 and $699 respectively and I consider those prices a steal for what you get. The Ranger R1 arrived in excellent condition. The Nebula N1 arrived in excellent condition as well except that the on-board charging port on the bike didn't work. No big deal since I can still charge the battery directly by removing it from the frame. Build quality on the bikes were also very good. Neither bike even remotely compare to my mid-drive ebikes when it comes to power, uphill performance, and maintaining the normal feeling of riding a bike but I already knew that before I bought them. The only problem with buying these bikes from TurboAnt is the support isn't all that knowledgeable because they are just a distributor and rely on their suppliers. The support staff sent videos in Chinese and pictures with nonsensical instructions. Fortunately, they did send wiring schematics that I could use. With my aforementioned problem with the N1, I eventually got them to issue a partial refund but that was after filing a PayPal dispute and many e-mail exchanges with them trying to get me to fix the problem myself.

I have a spare of Juiced Bike 52v battery, not sure if I can use that on this bike? They look similar to me, just not sure if this bikes controller can handle 52v battery?

I think it is a descent bike for this price. If you are thinking about an ebike and you are looking for a good quality and value, I recommend Genze and Aventon Pace 350. Not a fat tire, which I prefer. Based on my experience owning 2 ebike I do say two thing: 1) buy one! 2) educate yourself and https://electricbikereview.com is the only recourse you need. I'm currently debating on getting another ebike and I was tempted by this. However, after I searched electricbikereview I couldn't find any review so I pass.
