this is now ebike #3 from Martin and the crew, fantastic service, tolerable coffee and plenty of bike porn to look at after i've finished shopping for what i need. As usual Martin listened to what i wanted to use the bike for, and then recommended the most appropriate solution (which wasn't the most expensive :) )
the tern is a great bike, i use it for the end of a commute in london after parking up, it is a little bigger and heavier than say a non motorised brompton, but, and its a big but, it rides like a normal bike - no twitchiness, no wobbling, quick and direct steering, and goes like stink. Having ridden and owned hub and crank drive bikes, there is no comparison, assistance is quick, direct and torquey.
the other to mention is the adjustability and flexibility - this bike adjust in seconds (bars and seat) to be comfortable for me (6'1 and too many kg) or my wife (5'2 and not) it also happily tows my little boy on his trailer bike, carries a laptop and a projector, fits in the lift and under the desk at work, and has lights, mudguards, a clever bungee system, and a chain tucked well out of the way so i happily ride it in a suit. Equally it's at home as part of our campervan travelling down gravel paths, old railway lines and the like.
i'd reccomend this bike for anyone looking for a high quality, reasonably priced folder or even hybrid use bike.
