Very happy with this bike so far. I especially love that it rides just like a regular pedal bike with the power off, or with it in throttle mode. I prefer to use it in throttle mode rather than pedal assist. I find the pedal-assist has a bit too much kick and it goes faster than I like. Have put about 70 miles on it so far and have not had to charge the battery yet, although I do live in Florida, so it's very flat here. We are going on a trip this summer, so look forward to seeing how it fares on hillier roads.
