This is an amazing ebike, Prodeco has the best group of models of ebikes I have ever came across. We are real excited about being the only authorized eBay dealer for Prodeco Technologies. The quality of the bike itself is worth over $1000 and the motor and battery are like a free bonus. It rides just like a regular bike with no resistance and when you want power, just press the throttle and the 36V 500W motor comes to life and will help with the hills or just never pedal. Actually, you never have to pedal again if you don't want and ride it like a scooter. The 36V 500W motor is 250% more powerful than the 200W motor. The 200W motor is still available for those who prefer lighter weight and longer distance per charge. After the first ride, you will never want to ride a traditional bike. The Prodeco bikes seem to be the best deal by far anywhere in the market. We use to sell a few other brands but now only the Prodeco G Plus bikes. Anything else out there costs over $2000 with the same type of components or close to the quality. This bike is actually more in the $2500 plus range. Plus nobody else is doing a 2 year warranty on everything including the battery and lifetime on the frame. This bike also folds and can easily be placed in the trunk of your car. I physically went to the Prodeco manufacturing plant which is only about 20 miles from where I live and the place is first class all the way. These guys know how to build bikes and they have been doing it for 5 years now. A new bike is born every 5 minutes over there. If you have any questions, please ask, I will do my best to answer them or if I don't have the answer, I will get it for you. We are also an authorized part center for Prodeco. If you need some parts we carry 90% of all the parts. The other 10% I can get from Prodeco within 24 hours.
On ebay, there are so many ebikes. When I type in electric bike, like 2000 listings come up. There is so much garbage out there however and it seems 99% of the ebikes being sold are $79 walmart bikes with a $500 kit. One of the ebikes that is popular on ebay and sells for $1800-$2300 is like a $199 walmart bike with a $600 kit installed yet sells for double or triple, it makes no sense. I am confused how it sells for so much other than probably false hype. The Prodeco Genesis 500 bikes are like $1000 bikes with $1200 kits. The Prodeco frames are commercial quality and when you receive the box and open it, it is fully assembled and ready to ride in a few minutes. The way Prodeco packs it you can see how detailed and careful they are. The quality is just evident through the whole bike when looking at it. Did I mention 2 year warranty??? Most ebikes use Manganese or Cobalt batteries which are now being realized within an ebike application, most are not making it past the 1st year or ever getting the 600-700 charge cycles they are promised to get. That is due to heat issues and other reasons but the Prodeco bikes use the more expensive Lithium Ion Phosphate batteries which are proven to the 2000 cycles. They are Prismatic cells which are the most expensive kind. They are guaranteed for 2 years also but will last longer since there is no issue with heat. These Lithium Ion Phosphate batteries can charge also at 10 Amps where the others max out charging at 2 Amps, this is a huge example in the difference in stability of these Phosphate batteries versus the others. Phosphate is the new technology and all ebike companies should be using them. I am sure soon other companies will follow Prodeco's lead but for now there is nothing else on the market like these bikes otherwise we would offer those too.
If you are in the market for an ebike and or electric scooter, there is nothing else to look at. These are the best ebikes on the market by far. The price is just amazing and being built in the USA makes all the difference in the world when it comes to an ebike, especially the quality and consistency of the build. On some products it does not matter where it is built but with ebikes, it makes a huge difference.
Check out their website: www.prodecotech.com but please come back to me to buy it.
We will give excellent service and we work so hard to have the best feedback and keeping all our customers happy. Warranties can always be done directly through us if needed. We only purchase from local suppliers so we can help if there is ever an issue. We also sell a lot of the parts Prodeco uses. We are an authorized part dealer for them too. Besides ebike parts, we also are a big ISM saddles seller and get those local also. If you ever want the most comfortable saddle, ISM is the only way to go.

It has a superior, high torque direct drive motor that yields a continuous output of 500 Watts with the ability to peak to 750W when required. Press the throttle to activate the propulsion system or pedal like a regular bicycle. Built in the USA with a full 2 year warranty, the Genesis 500 is built to last and will offer years of issue free performance. With full adjustability, riders from 5’ 8” to 6’ 6” will ride in comfort. Whether crossing a College Campus, trailing the RV Park or running errands around town, the Genesis 500 is the perfect transportation. Only 5-10 cents to charge gets you 30 miles. Highest quality, beautiful finishing, aggressive features plus an industry best warranty.
Patented Aluminum Folding Frames - Fabricated from aircraft grade aluminum, the G Plus Genesis 500’s frame is designed for strength, portability, comfort, quality and longevity while maintaining a unique style. An overlapping Heavy Duty adjustable folding mechanism with an integrated safety latch assures the easy 15 second fold while offering the strength of a rigid frame.
Ships Fully Assembled - The Genesis 500’s fold allows the bicycle to be shipped 98% assembled. There is only 1 bolt to tighten when receiving the bicycle. Even the pedals are installed and the Genesis 500 is fully adjusted and tested before shipping. You will be up and riding in a few minutes. A full detailed USER GUIDE with multiple photos is included. No additional tools are required.
USA Built - All Prodeco electric bicycles are designed, assembled and quality controlled in the USA. Bicycles are produced on a daily basis in our Florida facility with no inventory being built older than 1 week prior to shipping. This allows for all components including batteries to remain 100% fresh and the latest stock. Overseas quality control is not consistent and the reason behind Prodeco’s reasoning for building the Genesis 500 in the USA.
2 Year Front to Back Warranty - A full part replacement EZ warranty remains in effect for 2 years from the date of purchase. If any component fails during this time, it will be replaced for a new component. EZ warranty replacement includes full motor wheel replacement. If for any reason your motor fails during the first 2 years, Prodeco will replace the complete wheel including rim and spokes. The new wheel will ship fully balanced and with the Motor’s easy disconnect; only a few minutes is required for removal and installation. LiFePO4 batteries are fully warranted for 2 years with no prorating. If your battery fails on month 23, a new LiFePO4 battery will be shipped.
Rust and Corrosion Resistant - The outdoor environment is a bike’s worst enemy. The Genesis 500 utilizes aluminum alloys, stainless steels and cromoly for 96% of all components and hardware. Prodeco understands the importance of year after year use, and an owner’s need for their bike to remain rust and corrosion free with continued performance and good looks. Small attention to details such as an alloy cap headset, alloy chain guard and stainless steel spokes have been implemented throughout the bicycle.
Brushed Aluminum Finish - The Genesis 500’s features a natural aluminum finish which is brushed and then coated with 2 coats of clear paint. The decals are placed under the clear as not to scratch or peel. All major components are either polished black or sandblasted black and anodized for protection.
LiFePO4 Li-ion Battery Systems - Manganese and Cobalt have been the main choice in Lithium cathode material used for the lithium electric bicycle market over the past 3-4 years. The discounted cost of these batteries comes with low life expectancy. Most are supposed to last 600-700 cycles but the majority of them start failing prior due to heat, storage and vibration issues. LiFePO4, the latest lithium technology increases the cycle life to 2000 plus at a minimal higher cost. Besides 3 X available charge cycles, the LiFePO4 system is highly more stable, can charge at higher amps and does not deteriorate with heat or storage unlike the majority of the other current ebike lithium batteries.
Throttle Powered - The Genesis 500’s motor is controlled via a variable throttle. Throttling permits riders to pedal when they prefer and establish assist according to their requirements, i.e (steep hill, no pedaling effort, bad knee, etc...). A light press of the throttle produces a slow and soft ride while fully pressing the throttle generates a quick and exhilarating ride.
Quick Disconnect 500W Motor - The Prodeco 500W direct drive HUB motor offers high performance and high torque. 500 watts is sufficient to allow a rider to power up inclines with 750W (1 HP) available at peak. With electric bicycles, the marriage of the motor, controller and battery is crucial in offering a decent range per charge cycle. The 500W motor also incorporates Prodeco’s quick weatherproof disconnect directly at the motor, tire or tube changes are no longer an issue when comparing to other electric bikes. The connector located within a few inches from the motor allows for a two-second disconnect and the motorized wheel can be easily removed hassle free.
Quick Connect Controllers - Electric bicycle controllers are the brain to the functions of an ebike. The Genesis 500’s controller is a maintenance free sealed unit. If the controller ever has an issue, it can be changed within a few minutes due to the Genesis 500’s use of a wire harness and simplified connectors. Issue proof connectors allow for connecting or disconnecting the controller in a matter of seconds.
Cartridge Bearing Headsets - The Genesis 500 uses an upper and lower cartridge bearing headset with a sealed aluminum alloy cap for high strength, years of issue free performance, and zero rust.
Sealed Bearing Bottom Brackets - To maintain the concept of no maintenance, the Mariner Sport utilizes Prodeco’s maintenance-free sealed cartridge bearing system for the bottom bracket. Prodeco’s bottom bracket contains an axle/spindle made of cromoly for higher strength and resistance to rust and spins freely on dual maintenance free sealed bearings. A standard 68/73 BSA ENG measurement is used.
Shimano Altus 7 Speed Gear System - The Shimano Altus derailleur is from the MTB style Shimano component group; however, finds itself equally at home with city, hybrid and sport bikes. A step above the Tourney system, the Altus provides a feeling of “easy control” that inspires confidence, especially among novice cyclists.
Alloy Chain Guard - Chain Guards on the Genesis 500 are aluminum alloy and not the plastic or steel found on most bikes, they will not rust and are lightweight.
KMC X8.93 Chain - KMC’s X8.93 chain incorporates extra stretch proof mushroomed pin enhancement for durability. Finished in two tone with links in bright nickel plated plates separated by gray plates. The X8.93 offers these added benefits: Double “X” Bridge Shape Outer Plate (excellent gear shifting), Bushingless Construction (smooth transmission), StretchProof Treatment (SP exceptional durability), Noiseless Function (noise reduction), Mushroomed Riveting (high pin power) and Inner Plate Chamfering (expeditious articulating).
High Performance Braking System - The Genesis 500 utilizes a Upgraded High Performance Promax DSK715 Front and Rear Caliper Disk Brake system. The calipers include tool free adjusting knobs for the brake pads. Oversized 203mm stainless steel polygon disk brake rotors offer a 61% increase in brake surface for better cooling which results in better stopping power. All brakes feature a Distinctive Charcoal Finish with contrasting red adjustment knobs. The brakes utilize Avid© BB5 brake pads.
12G Stainless Steel Spokes - Stainless Steel 18-8 12G spokes are thicker and up to 100% stronger than the typical 14G spokes found on most traditional bicycles. The added strength will offer years of issue-free performance while sacrificing minimally in weight savings. Stainless steel is used for its natural resistance to rust and high strength and anodized in Black for a dramatic and sporty look.
Deep Dish Triple Wall Rims – The Genesis 500’s 3 walls of aluminum rims offer advanced strength and flexing is almost non-existent when combined with Prodeco’s 12G stainless steel spokes. Balanced and trued wheels remain balanced and trued. At 25mm wide and 43mm high, they are pronounced in size but give hint to the strength they bear and a perfect match for the oversized 2.125” Kenda tires.
Kenda Low Resistance Tires - As with any ebike, tire choice is critical for distance per charge. The Genesis 500’s use of Kenda’s SRC Comfort Contacts allow for low resistance and smooth riding with a solid road surface grip. Kenda’s SRC line best attributes are the low rolling resistance, extreme durability and high tread longevity wrapped all into one universal package.
Quick Release Front Axle - The Quick Release “QR” axle offers a “tool free” 30-second front wheel removal for flats, service or as a theft deterrent. With the quick removal of the front axle, the bike will no longer be able to be ridden and tire or tube changes are a breeze.
Adjustable 31.8 Stem - Riders come in all sizes and riding positions vary in comfort for each rider. With the Genesis 500’s adjustable handlebar stem, the perfect position is easily found with a quick adjustment whether wanting the bar high and close or low and forward. The stem is not only capable of adjusting degree of angle from front to back but also for quill height. The stem additionally allows for condensing of the handlebar for storing, transporting or shipping.
Folding Aluminum & Nylon Pedals - High quality double bearing folding pedals are included with all Genesis 500s. The pedals use an aluminum body with a nylon cage floating on double bearings over a cromoly spindle. No plastic folding pedals here!
Frame Mounts - The Genesis 500 has incorporated frame mounts for water bottles and fenders. The traditional sized mounts are welded directly to or through the frame. Stainless Steel hex bolts are included.
Braided Housings & Stainless Steel Cables - Braided and Lined housings with stainless steel cables are an added layer of protection and durability. All housings are lined for the smoothest braking while inner stainless steel cables allow for rust and corrosion resistance. The addition of the braided layer not only increases the strength of the cable housing but adds an attractive detail typically reserved for only custom built bicycles.
About Prodeco Technologies
Prodeco Technologies is a manufacturer that was established with the sole purpose to REVOLUTIONIZE the electric bicycle industry. After three years of intensive research and development within the Industry, they believe USA BUILT is the only approach. Their MISSION is to provide the most innovative, latest in technology electric bicycles with breakthrough designs. They utilize only the highest quality components while maintaining a correct and affordable price, up to 50% less than the USA industry average. Their electric bicycles were also developed with weight savings as a priority and are up to 25% lighter. They commit pride and excellence to their dealers and customers. They maintain 100% in stock, 24-hour shipping of components and stand behind their two-year complete bike, battery and motor warranties with superior customer service.
The Prodeco G Plus Series electric bicycles are the next generation in ebikes and they have raised the bar to offer the ULTIMATE in electric bicycles.
Prodeco’s Goal is for the electric bicycle to become a household item in the USA. Prodeco Technologies set in place initiatives to provide their customers with affordable pricing, ease of service, while maintaining the highest level of standards. The quality level of components utilized in the production of an electric bicycle should maintain consistency throughout with full attention to the smallest of details. To set themselves apart and develop an electric bicycle unlike most, changes had to be implemented from the current production of most electric bikes. Numerous examples of where Prodeco has surpassed the competition exist from the smallest detail to the most evident components. Some examples are as follows: sealed bearing bottom brackets versus many competitor’s retainer bearing bottom brackets - cartridge bearing alloy cap headsets versus retainer bearing steel cap headsets - aluminum chain guards versus plastic or steel chain guards - thick 12G 18-8 stainless steel (rust resistant) spokes versus thin 14G steel or low grade SS (susceptible to rust) spokes - triple or double wall aluminum rims versus single or partial double wall rims - quick disconnect motors utilizing a wire harness versus single wire motors - LiFePO4 Li-ion 2000 charge cycle battery systems versus Manganese Li-ion 600 charge cycle battery systems – 2 (Two) Year 100% warranty versus a 1 (One) Year or less warranty - replacement parts at 25% less than retail shops versus replacement parts at 200% higher than retail shops - shipping fully assembled versus shipping partially assembled - Built in the USA versus Made in China - $999-$1299 sales price versus $1999-$2499 sale price and the list goes on. Even the packaging of their bicycles after production and testing is different than most. Prodeco uses a two part expanding foam system that encapsulates the bicycle in a top and bottom protective cocoon for shipping to avoid any possible damage.
Pricing & Service is extremely important for the electric bicycle to become a mainstream form of transportation in the USA. Prodeco believes the designs must be clean and simple with a two-year warranty on front to back components including the battery systems and motors. Ease of service is required with no component taking more time than five minutes to be replaced. Connections have to happen at the component level. Due to all assembly being done in the USA, Prodeco has an endless inventory of every single component in stock and readily available. Each component may be purchased separately at below industry average prices when comparing other manufacturer’s part replacement pricing. Their components are usually always of higher quality at a much lower price, up to 75% less.
Battery & Motor are the key components of the electric bicycle and Prodeco feels that no effort should be spared when quality, service and life expectancy are at issue. Battery: LiFePO4 is the latest technology developed in Li-ion Energy Cells; yet, so few manufacturers use this technology due to the higher cost. By Prodeco working directly with one of the highest regarded Li-ion LiFePO4 battery cell manufacturers in the world, there is no additional cost but an actual savings from the industry’s average pricing. The G Plus Genesis 500 battery is a 2000 charge cycle 38.4V 9Ah 24 cell LiFePO4 system with a two-year warranty and is available separately at only $399. This compares to the typical ebike manufacturer’s 600 charge cycle Manganese or Polymer battery costing higher while most only offering a 1-year warranty. Motors: Unlike Prodeco, the direct drive HUB motors in the industry today are very similar from one manufacturer to the next with the majority having a one-year warranty or less. There are 2 grades of direct drive motors and the difference is usually told by the warranty. Prodeco was also the first to utilize a weather proof 8P connector only 10mm in diameter directly at the motor itself. This 8P connector allows for an easy two-minute motor swap out with fully assembled HUB motor wheels (motor, spokes & rims) being shipped if a warranty issue was ever to arise.
Throttle vs. Pedal Assist was researched by Prodeco over the last three years for the USA market. “Pedal Assist Only”, “Throttle Only” and “Pedal Assist combined with Throttle” were tested. Prodeco acknowledged that the majority of riders preferred “Throttle Only” so that they could vary the assist, and were not required to pedal. “Throttle Only” also eliminated the safety concerns of the bike lunging under pedal assistance. Throttling does decrease the distance per charge if the rider does not pedal; but, the throttles are variable and riders are encouraged to pedal along to enhance distance per charge. After a rider becomes accustomed to throttle usage, he/she can determine the distance per charge by varying speed and pedaling efforts.
