I've been spending a lot of time with the Haibikes recently and am just so impressed with how far they can go on a charge! When comparing the FS 27.5" with my older Neo Jumper the battery just seems to go forever. I have a hard time even dropping one bar without going off road and riding 10+ miles. That kind of riding would take me down to half on the Easy Motion... I do miss the throttle a little bit but am getting used to pedaling non stop... probably get a better workout. Also, since it tops out at 20mph the Haibike feels a bit slower on road than the Neo does. If you work with the gears the mid-drive can get up just about anything... and I mean anything! I've climbed some very steep dirt paths where the back wheel was spinning out with each pedal stroke and I actually sort of wheelied my way up to maintain traction... but I made it. The motor makes it feel light and nimble even though the bike weighs 50lbs.I think that the issue is, that because they are different, you need to accordingly change your own mind-set, and then suddenly they make a lot of sense.
