Hello all! I've been avidly searching your posts and watching reviews here and elsewhere. After not riding much at all the past 20+ years I decided an ebike may be the motivation (and assistance) I needed. There is one ebike shop an hour from me and I was able to ride quite a few different bikes in various price ranges, including the Aventon 350 and 500, Magnum Ui6 and Metro and a sweet Gazelle mid-drive. It was a blast! Recently unemployed (maybe retired) I've been spending conservatively. I looked closely at DTC bikes, but know I cannot work on them myself and wanted the support of a LBS and I do prefer to support local. After riding much more expensive bikes (I decided if I needed to spend over $2k I would), I ended up with the Cosmopolitan because they had it priced at $1099. I love the look of the bike and many of the features. I realize it is entry level and now I'm second guessing a teeny bit wondering if I should have spent more to get better quality components like wider tires, upgraded battery, brakes, etc. My goal in getting a bike is for fun and fitness and I will ride mostly on paved trails. I haven't really seen many reviews or comments about this particular model so I'm curious if anyone has feedback.
