Aldi Electric Bicycle Cell Ultimo Review | Special Buys December 2019

Aldi had an electric bike on sale in early December 2019 and I’ve spent the past few weeks zipping around on it and I LOVE IT. For anyone who likes going bike riding but gets too tired or finds uphill treks a nightmare, this bike is for you.
It’s so easy, I’ve even started commuting to work (normally, I take a 8 minute drive to the light rail stop and then it’s a 25 minute ride to downtown and then I walk 5 minutes to work). The cost of riding the light rail each day for me is $7 and I would spend roughly $30 per week on petrol. Now, I save that $30 of petrol (so $120 per month or about $1560 per year) and get about 15 minutes of exercise in the morning and in the evening on the way to and from the light rail stop on my bike. So the bike will “pay for itself” within a year, I get out with some fresh air and it’s such a nice way to unwind at the end of the day!
Pretty happy with this bike (and it’s pretty great considering I used to ride like once per year and would bike for about 10 minutes before getting tired)!
The app it comes with is ok but I’m just using Strava instead. I’m 155cm tall (so about 5 foot 1-2 inches) and when I put the seat on the lowest setting, it works for me. If you’re shorter than me, it’ll be too high. The gears and brakes are super simple to use and it took my husband less than 15 minutes to set up the bike!
The charge of the bike lasts 50km as advertised and I usually bike for about 30 minutes each day (10-15km) and only have to charge a couple times max per week! The screen is super helpful in telling you how much charge you have left and it takes very little time to charge it up by plugging it in. Very happy with this bike!
Hope this review is helpful!

Yesterday I bought same this baik from aldi for $600 they make it very big discount.
Is it available in Australia?
Thanks for making the video. I’d be interested to know your thoughts after using it for several months as inevitably Aldi will see the popular item again!
Nice one hubby will do it.
Hi Kavina, Im new to this bike buying thing. Which site did you buy your bike from? thanks
I see you’re riding the ‘male’ version with the cross bar. They are slightly larger than the more common ‘ladies’ version with the step through frame design. I bought mine from Aldi for $999 and a few weeks later I found one for sale for $799 (and mine was still in the box waiting for Christmas 2019). When I was riding on a hot summer day, up and down big hills, a couple of times it would stop working. After reading the manual, I found there is a battery temperature safety cutout. So riding up the biggest hills after 19 kilometres of riding meant I had to walk it or ride without peddle assist for a bit. After five minutes it would be cool enough to work again and continue home. Overall very pleased with my bike. I rode over an aluminium drink can (on purpose) and the can clung to my front tyre, rolled up and caught in the front guard. Before I knew it, the front wheel stopped and I went over the handlebars. Lucky I had a helmet on as it broke from the impact.
anyone has founded a way to increase the speed limit (25km/h) of this bike?
All good, I found a number on the display
thank you for making this video I think I will get one too.
Would you know what the password is to pair the app to the bike?
i read the manual but no password supplied
