Both my husband and I have used GoBee bikes on several occasions. We live in Taipo and there are many bikes around. On the whole, we have had fairly positive experiences. Yes, the bicycles are a cheaper model and we use them just for short term fun rides or commutes. I like that we can go in one direction, pick up and drop off anywhere. At $5 for 1/2 an hour, very good price. One day we had a problem. My husband manually entered a code and a different bike, no where near us unlocked. We tried multiple times to contact the company but didn't receive repleys until several days later. Since he couldn't lock the bike, his balance dropped to $0 over 4 hours and we lost out on our outing. To be fair, the company refunded the money when they finally got back to us. So I guess would say, fun to use, mostly relaible, don't expect customer support if a problem occurs.
