We pre-ordered 2 Ocean Current Step-Thru's in Feb, and the first week of March they arrived; both in excellent condition as they were very well packed. Only minor assembly needed, and after a check for bolt tightness, airing up the tires, and topping off the batteries we were off. Our only previous E-bike experience was on rented Pedelec Interceptors. We have only put just over 4o miles on our Oceans, but I have to say these bikes are AWESOME. I find I prefer using the PAS vs throttle so I am getting some exercise and am covering alot more ground on a very comfortable-to-ride bike. Today's ride took up up some fire roads and over to a county park, on which we encountered a few 10% + grades on both paved and packed dirt. The cruiser-style may not be the best for these conditions, but these bikes handled it well. I had hoped for a upright ride-style bike that would handle this terrain as well as do close to 25 mph on the flats, and these Oceans have exceeded our expectations. I will update my post after a few more miles. Lots of E-bikes out there to choose from - and we are happy with our choice. Thank you Juiced Bikes !
