Needed to upgrade my old bike when I moved farther away from work. This is my first e-bike and I love it. It takes some getting used to, and I would caution against any setting higher than 2 for city riding with traffic. Having the throttle is great for hills. I do wish the owner's manual was a bit better; it contained information for a display that was different than mine and the instructions that came for attaching the basket (I bought it after my bike) were really poor. Headlight is strong. I don't care much for the saddle and will probably replace it with my Brooks, but it could just be a size mismatch. Overall, it was definitely worth the investment.
