Looking at a Story Road Bike

After last year, I realized 80% of my 3,000 miles were on paved trails or streets and less than 20 miles each time. So looking at lightweight road style eBike. I was looking at the Luna Fixed, but was concerned about only having 3 speeds and comments made about not having the gear range for hills or speed. Today I found the Story Road Bike at 33 pounds and 9 speeds. I miss the belt drive with the chain option, but I have no issue with maintaining the chain. The Story red and chrome version reminds me a lot of my 1965 Schwinn, and that's a plus! No ride tests on the internet, and only one mention of a Story bike on here that I can find. Any experience with the company? https://storybicycles.com/collectio...-road-bike-matte-black?variant=34986580246682

Looks pretty nice. I have no experience with the bike or company, but one concern would be if the battery isn’t easily removable.

The battery pack is in a plastic sleeve and comes out from a hole behind the head badge.

I looked at this bike and I find it interesting as an alternative to the Luna Fixed. Their website Quotes the motor as: Does not identify the brand name
Motor:350 watt geared rear hub motor
Battery:Samsung 36v x 7.0 AH
I guess for me it comes down to whether or not that battery could be replaced if needed, and how difficult that would be. Anything else could be serviced at the LBS.
