2 things always jump out 1st. This was my 1st time using hydraulic brakes , and 1st e-bike, and these maguras are the bomb. So confidence inspiring. Next is the crispness of shifting, very rapid and solid. I really enjoy a bike that is almost silent, and the St2 comes through in spades in this department. I have grown to love the hum of the balloon Big Bens rolling along. Brilliant choice of hoops. Range anxiety is almost non issue . I just realised mine has stopped that surging issue that has been an issue with others. Don't know why , been steady as she goes lately. Mighty fine piece of machinery !
