Vilano Atom upgraded! First full test ride with new gears!

After upgrading the original 2017 Vilano Atom( ) 24 mph cheap ebike freewheel from 14-30 to 11-30 ( ) , Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases. i am taking it on my first test ride. there is significantly more pedal control over 25-35 kph speeds over the standard freewheel. i also upgraded the pedals to fold.

This video applies to pretty much any hub motor ebike that has a cable coming out of the hub motor. The stock Shimano 7 speed free had 14-30 teeth which on 20 inch tires had a top pedal speed of 13-15 MPH (20 kph). Swaping to a 11-30 teeth DNP Epoch Freewheel allows the top pedal speed to go to about 18 mph (30 kph).

This helps as with the pedal assist is up to 24 mph (40 kph). This will allow for more control over the bike at the higher speeds. This bike is governed to assist to 24 mph, I am not changing that, i am just upgrading the freewheels so it better matches the higher speeds of this bike.
