The hub wouldn't be a problem around most of TO. The Don Valley would be nice with the mid, but as long as you keep your speed up over 8-10kph with some leg effort on the climbs the hub can do fine. Hubs can overheat in the summer with long hard climbs, but you're usually good for <5 min climbs on most typical city hills.

I ordered the red rize rx, I want my bike start March. Bikes are selling out really quick everywhere and I don't want wait till May. Pay $100 a week on UBER, so should get most cash back this year.

You'll love it. Go over the nuts and bolts pretty thoroughly both when you first assemble it, and again every week or two at first. I had a few work loose on each bike. It all settled in quickly.

And goes without saying to buy a good lock for TO! lol :)

This happened a few weeks ago: I bought an ebike and Fed ex ground dropped it at my door, he signed my name, and split. He didn't even knock. My wife heard him and called to me (I was in the next room) that she can hear it coming, so I went out thinking I had to sign for it, but he was gone quickly. The box on one corner was ripped up bad and someone either dropped the box and it landed on the corner or someone dropped something on the corner. The rear pannier was severely bent (the wheel wouldn't even move) and when I removed the pannier I realized the bolt holes were all ruined. Either way the force needed to bend the rear panier like it did had to be a lot of force. I imagine that was not best for a brand new electronic system and refused it. I am working on returning it now.

If at all humanly possible, when you hear the delivery person come- go out there, stop them, and do not let them leave without inspecting the box first. But if the box has been ripped up, you may want to refuse it and wait for a new one. Huge headache, after unpacking it, to decide you want to ship a bike back in a ripped box. All the support plastic strips are gone. The box is a 3d puzzle of stuff. Once I get it returned and get my money back I'll report on the whole story. Just don't need to poke the lion on here and have them read it.

If Companies are not going to require signatures because of COVID (I get it), delivery people shouldn't sign someone else's name. He didn't even spell it correctly.

The crates are crazy heavy, so I can't imagine how they move them solo. I was home when mine arrived so we both carried it into the garage, but I can totally see how that would happen. Hope you get it resolved fairly and quickly!

I was planning spend approx $2,500 CAD, is it worth paying extra cash on RX compared to X ? I don't mind waiting 8 weeks that's why I want to order bike next few days.
yes it surely is, i dont care how long you have to wait, the RX is a rocket!

I see you've already ordered! Considering replacing my hub bike with one with the Bafang mid-drive (already have a Shimano mid-drive as well).

When I've ordered bikes online, I've always called after filling out everything but credit card info, just to speak to someone and confirm that the website was accurately reflecting the "in-stock" status. :)

Of course, with the COVIDs it might be harder to get someone on the line, but it's always worth considering calling to confirm. A company that answers their phones promptly also adds a bit of confidence when plugging in the credit card number. :)

Mine was cardboard- a modified TV box.
