I pre-ordered the bike, it arrived before e-bike shop said it would. Always fantastic to deal with a company that delivers ahead of what it commits to. The bike - well I am soooo impressed! I have done over 400 miles on it and its great. One thing I did not fully appreciate about Hybrid E Bikes - they are just so comfortable and you feel so much safer than lets say on my Cube Carbon road bike.
You sit higher so you can see more easily around you and take it what the traffic is doing. Ruts and potholes you can just ride over without having to zig zag around dangerously. The brakes and tires are also superb. So far I have done 95% of my riding in eco mode, but its comforting on the really hilly stuff to have 3 other higher power settings.
The motor is so subtle and quiet you hardly know its there - except when you switch it off!! The only problem I have had is the chain coming off a few times when going into the highest gear downhill, - not great! Its really quite difficult to get the chain back on again because of the chainguard and weight of the bike. I wonder if that would justify the cost of the better gears on what looks like fundamentally the same bikes but more expensive in the Cube hybrid range the Pro and Kathmandu. Lastly its comfort means I go further, I dont have to wear lycra and I think I get more exercise. Spend £2k on this, not on Peleton in your lounge!!
