DYU D3F Review | Best Affordable E-Bike?

[Upbeat Music] Hello everyone, here is BK42, and 
welcome back to another e-bike review  today I want to show you the DYU D3F, which 
is an affordable 14-inch electric bike  DYU sent this to me to review for you and I assure you that I did ride it around for 
a few weeks and I do have some honest feedback  the D3F is simple to operate
there are no shifters, cassettes or derailleurs as it’s a single-speed bike
this simplicity is great, but I have more   gears that would improve the 
ride experience and the range  this mini bike weighs only 17kg and the 
portability is another great plus for DYU  the handlebars and pedals are foldable and the 
saddle can be removed to make the bike smaller  this bike can be stored almost anywhere  a small cutout section in the battery housing 
allows you to grip the frame like a handle  this is great to move the bike up and down
I really like it  the DYU D3F is suitable for riders from 150 
to 186cm with a maximum payload of 120 kg  even being such a small bike
I can seat comfortably on it  there is plenty of space between 
my knees and the handlebars  let’s run down the operating buttons
the left-hand grip has the power on/off   button and a sweet little bell
the right-hand grip is where   the battery indicator, the cruise control
and the headlight on/off button are located  the full-size twist grip throttle is also there
just like in a motorcycle  the cruise control is a blast
it can be started at   any speed with a single button press
deactivate using the brake levers  press and hold the button for 3 
seconds to turn on the headlights  of course, holding it down will turn it off
remind that the headlight is mounted to   the frame and not the fork, so the headlight 
does not turn to match the steering direction  there is a little taillight, battery operated  I got a rear light on my 
bike needing a new battery  no big deal, but it could also be 
integrated into the main battery  the DYU D3F comes in 14-inch tires, a 
250-watt hub motor, 36V 10Ah battery and   it is just a bit bigger than an electric scooter
setting up this bike is very easy as you can see in this video here and the 
battery arrives almost fully charged  speaking of the batteries, it takes about 
five to six hours to fully charge the battery  the battery is not removable and must be 
charged using this small charging port here  the range is about 37km in pedal assist mode
not bad for such a small battery  the maximum speed is 21km/h
it should be around 25km/h but my bike doesn't run that fast
maybe it's somehow speed limited  there is no LCD displays, so reprogramming 
the bike settings isn't easy, as well there   is no speed and millage display
but this bike is meant to be   simple and affordable, so that's fine
in the rear wheel is the 250-watt motor legal according to EU regulations
it definitely helps in climbing hills  by the way, the maximum 
climbing angle is 15 degrees  the brakes are good
they are mechanical brakes with 160 mm rotors and they stop the bike shortly when used
there are motor inhibitors that cut the engine   power as soon the brakes are used
left is the rear brake and right is the front brake
the design of the D3F is very unique  the frame shape, the matte black, and 
the red details make it a great design  the aluminum frame is sturdy and the wires running 
into the frame give it a very special touch  riding the D3F is pretty comfortable, but 
cycling isn’t so when the battery dies  the handgrips are ok and the handlebar is stable
there is no front or rear suspension and it   comes with front and rear plastic 
fenders and the taillight included  the little kickstand is also 
strong and holds the bike very well  there's a noise coming from the battery case, so 
I'll have to open it up to see what's going on   but that's for another video
do I recommend this bike?  Yes, I do
for those looking   for an entry-level electric bike, or trying to 
spend about $500 on a portable electric bike  the D3F is a great commuter bike, but it 
can also be a great bike for the elderly  easy to assemble and even easier to use  if this is the right bike for you
I’ll add an affiliate link below  that's it for today, so please comment below 
and let me know what you think about this bike  stay tuned, lots to come…
