" ...  I don't care who you are, spending this much money on something without having the chance to see it is a risk, so I am putting up this in-depth review in the hopes that it helps you. ... The $700 price point was great, and much lower than most ebikes, scooters, or motorcycles (all secondary options for me).  ...  "

comment
" ...  After seeing this bike is around half the price of other E-bikes i was worried it was going to come with a lot of cost cutting measures, and it probably does, but as my first E-bike it definitely doesn't feel like it.  ...  "

" ...  The lock has a holster that lets you just snap it right onto the frame wherever you screw the holster on but . ... I can't go beneath the battery, I can't bolt this holster onto the middle of the frame anywhere because the brake lines go through there as well. ... I'm really glad I chose around that, rather than the folding feature, because it's pretty rough even as it is right now.  ...  "

" ...  Do I wear a backpack whenever I bike so I can carry my bike lock around? ... I'm really glad I chose around that, rather than the folding feature, because it's pretty rough even as it is right now.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I don't have a lot of experience with bikes, and growing knee pain was one of the reasons I was looking for a new bicycle. ... The gears have a wide range, so you should be able to find something comfortable for you to pedal in, but with only seven gears, you can't dial it in like on a 21-speed.  ...  "

" ...  I love the bike. ... Other than those things, the bike is great!  ...  "
comment
" ...  This mode just gives you a very subtle extra push, that you might barely even notice, but probably helps you in the long run.  ...  "

" ...  My family as they walk by say stuff like, "Wow that's a pretty, or cool, bike."  ...  "
comment
" ...  Anyways the bike is great, given it's my first E-bike, i've learned at least with this one that it get's heavy fast. ... This bike however cuts my commute time in half all without breaking a sweat. ... Also going to the gym is easier as i don't have to pedal hard after a big workout. ... I can do more while inside without having to worry too much of the extra cardio i'll need to do outside.  ...  "

" ...  You can buy a whole new seat entirely for like $20-$30 if you really want to. ... The lock has a holster that lets you just snap it right onto the frame wherever you screw the holster on but . ... The brakes probably need a bit of tightening, but I haven't found them to be excellent.  ...  "

The battery comes off really easily (provided you have the key), which allows for easy charging of it if you don't want to or can't bring the bike inside for whatever reason. ... You also can charge the battery for a while after the light turns green, the manual suggests one or two hours extra to fully charge it, which seems like not the best or most informative design, but if you're charging over night, who really cares.  ...  "
