This is a great bike!!
1 week in and very happy with this bike. It is amazing value for money and the bike does everything the manufacturer promises. The delivery time was incredibly fast and the bike arrived in great shape, was easy to assemble and required minimal adjustments (a little fiddling with the gears but otherwise great)!
The bike is incredibly nimble riding around town and is perfect for my 5 mile commute each way to work. I adjusted the peddle assist to 5 settings rather than the manufacturer setting of 3 and like the additional choice. I spend most of my commute in level 3, with the occasional increase to 4 on hills on the way into work and 5 on the way home (which can be incredibly fast!!).
I read a lot of blogs before the purchase and agree with most comments that the trade-offs between price and what the bike offers strikes a great balance. It would be great to have 5 speed gears (with a higher top gear) but I have been able to push to 27 mph which is pretty great. I find the brakes to be responsive (not as powerful as the hydraulic disks on my Spot Brand but good enough to stop fast in emergencies).
The one thing I might rethink is on the size - I should probably have bought a medium but went for the small as I read that it makes sense to go for a smaller size. So while the bike feels just a little small for me, the upside is I ride lower to the ground and it is incredibly maneuverable and nimble, which is not a bad trade-off when the peddle assist is doing a lot of the work.
I would have no hesitation recommending this bike to others - it is heaps of fun to ride and I am going to have trouble going back to my regular bike. I am sold!!
