The Elby is BY FAR the favorite of everyone who rides any of my (6) eBikes.

I own 6 electric bikes:
- Kalkhoff Integrale S11
- Kalkhoff Include 8 Premium
- (2) Gazelle Arroyo C8 HMB
- Pedego Stretch Cargo Bike
- Elby

Everyone in my family fights over the Elby. Almost everything about the Elby is superior to the others, especially the Bionx drive system. I pull an adult special needs trailer from Wike, and the Elby has more climbing power than any other, even though all but the Pedego are mid-drives which have a mechanical advantage. The Elby's ability to peak at 1,000 watts is the key, and it is just as smooth as butter and almost completely silent. My only criticism is the distance between the seat and handlebar is too much unless you are 6ft tall. I have the handlebar adjusted all the way back, and the seat adjusted fully forward, and my wife's only complaint is that it isn't more upright like the Arroyo or the Kalkhoff Include 8. My only other criticism is that the seat post is proprietary, so in order to add seat suspension you need an aftermarket bushing in order to fit a different seat post.

I need one more eBike to complete my collection for my family, so I'll be adding a second Elby this week.
