My wife (5’ 9 1/2”) has been looking at bikes for a few weeks and has come down to the Aurora limited vs the Gazelle C380. Use would be primarily recreational, touring, etc. Mosty paved surfaces but some dirt and gravel and hills as well. Distances 30-50 miles. We have ridden the C8, looking for a 380 to try, but probably will not be able to try the Aurora. The C8 was too small, but otherwise it was great. My main concern with the Aurora is the weight, not being able to try it out and no local support. The 380 does not have a throttle and a smaller battery, and the tires seem a little narrow for nonpaved surfaces. I would welcome any comments.
