I'm blown away by how great this bike is. A friend commented that it looked too clean.

Great suspension showing. And nothing to trap tree limbs that ride up the tire. That threw me once when it wedged in the rim brake.

Welcome! Curious about your riding style. Do you pedal a bike like that? The web site says you can boost power with the pedals, but with a top speed of 50mph and statements like "blistering speed" and "astonishing speeds", it doesn't present much like a bicycle.

This bike is on the edge between mountain bike and motorcycle. I mainly ride in the low power mode and utilize the 9 speed gear box. You an go up any hill and still get a work out on the pedals. On the flats you can punish yourself as much as you want or just cruise at a top end of 20-21 mph. There is a throttle that gives you the option of what you want to add to your pedaling. The low power mode lets you get a work out. "Completion" mode is another story. As you figured there is no way you can keep up with the high speeds with the pedals. Also you will not be pedaling home if you run out of battery as the B-52 weighs around 119 lbs. I looked at what was out there in the electric bike world. I looked at the hub motors and the mid frame ones. I liked the hub motors and went with the top end one. The bike is super quality and built to take what I can throw at it. I am beyond pleased at what this bike can do. The high speed capability makes running down the beach a lot of fun. No pedaling in the sand....
