The bike came mostly assembled and was pretty easy to put the few things on that were required. It was a rainy day anyway so there was no rush. I have enjoyed riding this bike every day since i received it and LOVING every minute of it! took me a few days to get the gears and assist working seamlessly together for best performance. I was worried it would be TOO easy and i would not get a work out but that is not the case. i get a good workout. The best part is the throttle! i use it when crossing the highway and for that last bit when going up a hill...2 seconds on the throttle and i am on the top and it was just enough push! i also use when i know cars can not see me on some of the curves here. I did buy a new seat for it. the seat wasn't bad especially if you wear the padded bike pants but the seat really helped to get a longer ride with comfort. I seem to have plenty of battery for the rides i am presently taking but hindsight i might have paid extra for a stronger battery life. i will likely buy a 2nd battery. I would most definitely purchase purchase from Steve and Realgoodbikes again and i recommend to my friends who express interest. AND the best part is my knee surgeon said the best thing i could do is RIDE A BIKE to save my other knee.....and so i DO!
I never realized how much easier a step-through was to get on and off until I got my new E-Torque ebike. What’s even better, whether I‘m in need of just clearing my head or taking a moonlight ride, this bike allows me to cruise without having to do any pedaling. I also love that this bike comes with fenders, which look great and keep the mud and water off my clothes.
First of all, I can’t fault the responsiveness of RGE. Any time I had a problem, they immediately sent a solution. The product arrived ahead of time, and arrived in a double box (which had a hole in the side, that didnt affect anything). I received the exact parts needed to assemble the bike. It took a while to understand the language the instructions were written in, which I’ll call Changlish. I’m pretty handy with bikes, so I didn’t have major problems (example: “Prohibited battery dip in the water.”) The wrong instructions were sent for the controller, but I got a file rapidly once I requested them. I do think the instructions would be hard to follow if someone with few skills tried to assemble it, especially since the pictures were very dark. The bike itself seems pretty solid, but my wife is having problems riding it due to the weight, so I’ll hang on to the box and packing for a while.
Are you looking for a comfortable and stylish step-thru electric bike that is reasonable priced and easy to ride? Check out the E-Torque by Eunorau. This amazing ebike is feature-rich, and a definite bargain.
Let's start with the basic frame design. E-Torque has a step-through frame design that makes it easy to get on and off, since you don't have to lift your leg over the saddle or rear rack. That's why it's call a step-though frame. E-Torque comes with black fenders, an integrated headlight, and rugged rear rack.
The electronic components on the E-Torque are equally as impressive. You have a high-torque 350W rear hub motor, paired with a 36V/12.5Ah downtube-integrated lithium-ion battery with DLG 18650 cells. This will give the average rider a range of up to 45 miles per charge.
The motor and battery are controlled by a 5-level pedal assist system (PAS) with a bottom bracket-integrated torque sensor; it also features a Class 2 thumb throttle, so you can ride without pedaling at all. On top of that, there is a 7-speed Shimano gear system, so the E-Torque can be ridden like a conventional bike. Of course, these drive modes can be used in combination, so that you can find the sweet spot for every segment of your ride.

The 3rd-party independent ebike review site Electric Bike Review recently prepared a detailed review of the E-Torque, and were quite favorable. They said that the E-Torque Step-Through Ebike is:
An affordable, electric commuter feature packed with fenders, rear rack, integrated LED Lights, plastic chain guard and and an adjustable suspension fork and comfort styling
The ergonomic grips, adjustable stem, tilted seat-post tube and suspension seat-post and fatter road tires give a very comfortable ride
The pedal assist is very responsive and smooth, based on the bottom bracket torque sensor. Combined with the quick throttle, the 350w motor has a fast response time
The bike comes in one frame size, medium, and one red color (jokingly called "China Red" by the EUNORAU staff). Mechanical disc brakes don't give as much stopping power as hydraulic, but they are easier to maintain.

Does this bike have optional front and/or rear baskets that you can add on? If so what are the size/ weight specs and cost? Thx
The manufacturer does not make baskets for the E-Torque, but you can find a wide range of universal baskets (front and rear) that will fit the bike. They are generally lightweight and not too expensive. Here are some that we like: https://reallygoodebikes.com/collections/bike-baskets
