For those who are curious, I'm happy to report that after three years my original Homie battery is about to the pass 10,000 kilometer mark. This battery has recently been struggling when climbing steep hills under full power but is still going.

Finally nice days arrived! One of my first ride and so far it’s great! I have only 17 miles on the counter.

Ive tried...i thought i was just too weak hahahaha. Anyway, ive been using my homie to get me to work and home and I want to say that I love the bike. Max, you and your team are doing amazing work here. Im not only speaking about the bike, but also the service that you guys have provided. I know it was a tough road when you guys were starting plus when the pandemic hit (based on the reviews and comments), however, with my experience with you guys...you guys were just AWESOME! At first I was hesitant to pull the trigger because of the reviews out there, but later on i just decided to take the leap. It might not be a bunny hop but im so glad to have taken that leap. Il get back to some of the youtube videos comments out there and spread the positive things about you guys. Keep up the great work Nireeka!

So I'm biking home tonight... and this thing shows up out of nowhere. I now know that I can forcefully bunny-hop the Nireeka Homie in a pinch. Emergency hopping a combined ~114kg (250lbs) was not fun, but I am not dead, and the bike took it like champ. Almost 1000km logged so far! @MaxShojae Thank you for designing a nice sturdy and light bike! :)

Max Shojaie replied to "Torque Sensor"
The torque sensor senses the force you're applying to the pedals, so the motor provides the appropriate torque based on that.

If you get the power when you're pushing the pedals, you do have a torque sensor on your bike.

If you share a picture of your sprocket, I can show you where the torque sensor is in the picture.

Your wheel size is 27.5" so you can set the wheel size on the display to 27".

In this video, you can see how easy is to remove the battery on the Nyx to charge the battery inside or replace it with a spare battery on long journeys.

The good thing about this battery is that, since it has a separate carbon fiber cover, unlike the Homie and Prime, you can ride the bike without the battery and still cover the inner frame to protect the wires and connectors inside from dirt and rocks.

We don't have this feature on our bikes as of yet. The reason is that the Shimano brake levers don't have the required sensors.

Where can I ride my new eBike?
California adopted new laws for legal eBikes in 2015, breaking the bikes down into three classes. The classifications are primarily based on where they are allowed to operate.

AB 1096: Electric Bicycles
This is the law that defines electric bicycles as those with fully operable pedals and an electric motor of less than 750 watts. It also creates three classes of electric bicycles based on their motor speed and level of electric assist. Electric bikes subsequently fell into classes 1, 2, and 3.

Important note! CA State AB1096 established a default framework – where a local jurisdiction (city, county, etc.) had not put any form of ordinance in place for electric bikes. A local jurisdiction (city, county, etc.) may enact an ordinance to allow or restrict electric bike usage for their area that may differ from the State default.

Class 1 eBike
A Class 1 eBike, or low-speed pedal-assisted electric bicycles, is equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling and that stops providing assistance when the bicycle reaches 20 mph. These e-bikes are legal on any paved surface that a regular bike is allowed to operate.

Class 2 eBike
Class 2 eBikes, or low-speed throttle-assisted electric bicycle, are equipped with motors that can exclusively propel the bicycle, but that cannot provide assistance when the bike reaches 20 mph. These e-bikes are legal on any paved surface that a regular bike is allowed to operate.

Class 3 eBike
A Class 3 eBike, or speed pedal-assisted electric bicycle, is equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling and stops providing assistance when the bicycle reaches 28 mph. Operators of Class 3 e-bikes must be 16 or older and wear a helmet. Class 3 e-bikes are prohibited from Class I multi-use bike paths unless specifically authorized by a local ordinance.

Since it's almost impossible to ride a bike during autumn and especially winter in many regions, it's essential to keep your bike and battery in proper condition to avoid any damage. Please check the following FAQ: 1. How and where should I store my Nireeka bike? The first thing you need to do is to clean your bike and remove any dirt, water, and dust, especially from the metallic parts. You need to keep your Nireeka bike inside your building and it should not be under rain or snow. 2. How should I store my batteries? You need to remove your battery from the bike. A small current can flow in the switched-off bike, which leads to a complete discharge which, after a longer period of time, can damage the battery and at the very worst destroy it. Lithium-ion batteries (Li-ion) should not be stored over a longer period of time either uncharged or fully charged. The optimum storage as determined by extensive experiments is with 40% to 50% capacity and at low (not freezing) temperatures, which should not drop below 0°C. Storage at 5°C to 20°C is optimal. As a result of self-discharge, a recharge is necessary every month.

Max Shojaie published Payment Plans
Hello everybody

Good news! We just added the financing option to our website. Our primary vision was to deliver the most affordable carbon fiber ebikes in the world and we're still doing this. However, it's still expensive for most people especially during pandemics so we decided to add the payment plan to our website. Of course, we could use the lower quality parts on our bikes to make them more accessible but instead of sacrificing the quality, this payment plan option will let more people join our community.

Our payment plan app is Partial.ly which is the most flexible financing option ever. It's not only flexible but also very easy to use and its integration with our website was super cool and smooth.

Here is the list of Partial.ly advantages:
- No credit check
- Spread the cost
- 0% interest
- Flexible Plan choose by customer
- Automatic Schedule payments
- Use your existing credit or debit card

Our second option is the Paybright by Affirm which is the most famous option available and many of you already have an account on their website.

See you soon!

We're using nb-IoT and cat-m1 that have nothing to do with 2G. The module is sim7600g-h (4G compatible). The standard version will have the promised features while the upgraded version comes with many more features.

Many customers ask if they can install a dropper seatpost on the Prime while they're actually referring to a suspension seatpost. These two parts are not the same, but they're two different concepts in two different worlds! I tried to explain it in a few lines as simply as possible.

Dropper:
A Dropper seatpost allows you to adjust the saddle height without requiring you to get off your bike or even stop moving by pushing a lever on the handlebar, exactly like your gear shifter.
Simply stated, when riding in a seated position, push the lever and your body weight will drop the post all the way down. While standing, push the lever again and the dropper post will pop back up into a pre-set riding position.

Our recommendation: Rockshox Reverb Stealth (https://www.sram.com/en/rockshox/models/sp-rvb-s-c1)

Suspension Seatpost:
This seatpost is like a suspension on a bike. It will be used for absorbing the road bumps. As simple as that!

Our recommendation: Kinekt (https://cirruscycles.com/pages/store)

Max Shojaie published Stolen Bikes!
Hello everyone,

If you're considering buying a used Nireeka product, please make sure you check the frame number with the Nireeka agents before placing the order.

While we're monitoring online shops like eBay for such cases to find the stolen bikes, we're still missing a few. Based on our latest information, 5 bikes have been stolen in Europe, 2 already sold through eBay in Germany, and 6 bikes in the United States.

Below you can find the model/color/frame numbers of the stolen bikes:

Nireeka Prime Orange Frame number #0046

Nireeka Homie Orange Frame number #1814
Nireeka Homie Orange Frame number #0527
Nireeka Homie White Frame number #1018
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0375
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0535
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0104
Nireeka Homie 3K Frame number #0112
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0387
Nireeka Homie Black Pearlized Frame number #0503
Nireeka Homie Orange Frame number #0996
Nireeka Homie Orange Frame number #0529
Nireeka Homie Matte Black Frame number #0613
Nireeka Homie Red Frame number #0358

In most cases, the thief will ask you to pay in cash so there would be no money back from eBay or your CC.

With the help of the LAPD, we found several stolen bikes in California and brought them back to the owners so please let us know if your bike is stolen so we will add it to the list. At least we'll make it harder for the thief to sell your bike to someone else!

Max Shojaie replied to "NSD WIP"
Hello everybody.

It's been a few months since the latest update about the NSD. The good news is that while the NSD is in the latest stages and a demo video will be published next week, the Android/iOS app is also ready and you will be able to download it very soon.

As the above picture suggests, NSD is a part of a triangle that makes your bike smart while each part is independent and can work seamlessly without the other parts. Mainly, the NSD is responsible for gathering data from the bike and is the bridge to the bike's controller, the application is responsible for some analysis and controlling the settings, the CP (customer panel) is a comprehensive control or command center for all happening in this triangle. We also use the CP (admin side) for diagnosing the bike remotely using online and real-time statistics.

In addition, the CP will be used for sharing your riding records with the other Nireeka owners on the forum
