Review submitted on previous model: So at 38 and not ridden a bike for a good 15 years, I took the plunge! Was thinking about commuting to work for sometime now (14 mile round trip) but was just concerned with the wind, hills etc against me! So after looking into electric bikes I decided to go straight to the best, in the past I have bought cheap, and then you always buy twice!
Had the bike only a few days and boy it flies especially with the dongle kit! First ride was great in turbo mode so I done a quick 5 mile round trip, with a little effort I was easily cruising at 28 mph! Boy this bike is fun! A massive hill on the way back and I was doing 20 mph up it, gradually easing down to 15 mph on the last steep part, obviously my legs are new to this but if I was on a normal bike I would have been walking up it!
Day two, hmm what can I do on the flat?, a quick burst to 33.6 mph obviously with the dongle the assist cuts out at 31 mph.
Done a quick 3.4 miles round my brothers in 10 minutes flat, and on the way back over took the local biking crew at 30 mph!
Negatives, boy the saddle has made my arse numb and sore! Going to go the comfy gel route me thinks!
