To me, this is what an e-bike should be. I like being able to pedal, if I chose to, and I can see myself using human propulsion most of the time, reserving the electric motor as a boost when I need it.
With a typical top motor speed of 32kmh, I was able to get it faster by pedaling at the top gear. The ride was smooth, thanks to the dual-front and single rear suspension. Tires are nice and wide, making it a bit more streetcar-track-proof. It's perfect for the city and would help me getting up the escarpment to St. Clair.
Unfortunately, with a price tag of $3795, it's a little out-of-my- reach. Still, it's a stride forward - I can't wait till battery technology gets cheaper and bikes like these are within the budget range of everyone.
