I picked up our bikes at Corner Cycle in Falmouth, Mass. They did a good job of assembly. They were very cordial about orienting me to the bikes.
We just got back from cycling in the Champlain Islands area of Vermont. We rode 15-25 miles each day and never broke a sweat.
Our Avenys look more like regular bikes than a lot of ebikes, so they are probably a bit less of a target for theft.
The only things I miss are front shock absorbers. And I wish it had a higher top gear. We rode with people who had RAD Power bikes. Big, bulky, heavy, but they look very badass, so people are more drawn to them than the Aveny, which I'm fine with. I seriously considered the RAD bikes, and the deal breaker was the weight. Too heavy for my wife to lift. Too heavy for our car rack. And too conspicuously ebikes, not easily snuck onto bikeways where ebikes aren't allowed.
Overall, we're very happy with our Avenys, and we're very happy we went with Blix rather than RAD. Well made, well thought out, and a real pleasure to ride. Very happy with the way the assist works. Comfortable riding position. No need for gel geat over the leather. Our friends with RADs had to use gel seats for more comfort. And if nothing else made the Aveny appealing, my wife just LOVES the drink holder!
Thanks for great bikes. I hope the electronics and/or motor never need service, because that could be a problem. But so far so good!
