Based on Court' review and riding this bike myself I decided to buy it for my wife. I agree with everything Court said in his review, so no need to re-hash the details. My wife loves the classy look and solid feel. She also loves the easy and versatile electric controls for pedal assist and throttle. It's not a power house like my Prodeco Phantom, but for my wife that's a good thing. She wanted a bike with power that wouldn't surprise her. For the money this is a great bike. I payed considerably less than retail too, which is great. As a random coincidence the owner Wayne of EG USA was visiting the shop I bought the bike from. He is a great guy who answered all of my questions. You could tell he is passionate about offering a quality product at an affordable price. Any questions feel free to ask.
