I love this bike! Received my Apex a week ago. My bike shop got the bike ride ready, and I rode it 10 miles home. First, no pictures can capture the true beauty of this bike. Its stunning and mesmerizing. A man at the bike shop ask my permission just to take a picture lol. Once on the road it handles even better then it looks! Rohloff transmission shifts precisely. Pedals move like butter and can really feel the power of the new ultra motor. The new lithium cells are fantastic also. This truly is the greatest bicycle on Earth and its an honor and a privilege to own one. Luna is the future of bikes and the future is now!
