I'm considering buying the Eco Cross for commuting 7 miles each way to work. I'm 5'10 and 165 lbs. I want to get to work without getting sweaty which was the problem with my regular bike. There's a steep hill near my house and am wondering if this bike can make it up the hill using just the throttle. I'm concerned that the 350 W 48 v motor may not be enough. Does anyone have experience with this bike? It looks awesome but I'm a function over form person so I don't want to buy it based on looks. Is $2800 a good price for this bike?
