Does everything I expected of this spec of bike. A real pleasure to ride , we'll put together.
My only concern are the brakes (Magura mt4) which feel weak and wooly compared with my previous bikes SRAM Guides. Need to give the dealer a chance to put it right on the first service.
Just to say I had a brilliant time on my new Haibike xDuro 2016 Bosch CX FullSeven it made my ride so much more enjoyable. When I first heard about e-bikes I thought they were for lazy riders and a bit ‘cheating’ but frankly it is just like using a geared vs an ungeared bike.
The most exciting thing is the wider terrain it has opened up to me. As you said you get to go Faster, Further and Steeper than you would on an ‘ordinary’ bike. I was skeptical I could ascend a local very steep hill sitting down but I did and in torrentially wet conditions. The ability to have traction and ‘accelerate’ through hairpin bends whilst ascending is unique, as is the lower center of gravity which feel much safer and more controlled on steeper descents.
All in all it is an amazing piece of kit.
