Thanks Timpo! I have spent several hours online, reading all about Elby and watching youtube videos. This seems like a great bike!!! I have already filled out the form to have one brought to me for a test ride! I love how the motor is hidden. It's a great looking bike and $3,300., right in my price range. I really appreciate your advice! (I posted a link above that deals with the Bionx issue.). It has 4 levels of assist and 4 levels of regen.Elby have good reputation.
The 500W BionX motor will give you good push on the hill but still give you exercise because of cadence sensor.
Comes with the throttle too.
I can't remember for sure, but it might comes with regen brakes so you can recharge the battery while braking.

However I'm a bit worried about the BionX components because I thought they're bankrupt?
