I have been riding this daily for several weeks now and this has exceeded my expectations. I was looking to get more active but was way out of shape. this bike has helped me get so far so fast. I started off only getting about 1-2 miles and now I am up to 10 miles a day without the assisted mode already. I do still use it just for the fun ride of cruising at 19 mph though. battery life is fantastic as well.
