Overall love my bike and would definitely recommend it. Classic European style, I get tons of compliments. On a relatively flat or slight uphill, I use 1 or 2 assist level. Bike is heavy like all electric bikes, with power on it doesn’t matter. Shipping was delayed but not too bad. Assembly was easy. The leather cracked and ripped in a couple of spots on the handle after only one month of use. The fork is solid so best for paved surface, you’ll feel every little bump.
My only issue is the kickstand is short and is way off center towards the back wheel which is out of the way of pedaling however, if you put any weight on the front of the bike (front basket was an extra assessors) the bike falls. Was really bummed that now my beautiful bike has scratches.
