If you are looking for the best ebike then look no further than the Ohm XU700 16. I spent the last 18 months doing just that. I’ve put on over 16,000 km on two other ebikes, and due to a car door opening into me while riding 3 weeks ago I ended up with my 3rd ebike. This one, has everything that I have found lacking in the other two bikes, and boy do I appreciate that.
It took a wee bit of getting used to (only 10 minutes) the way the torque sensor “rides” when compared with simple, crude, cadence sensors I road with before. The XU700 is just so smooth that it was .. different. The way it works really is more like a fine tuned human machine interface, really, -it feels more like the legs are part of the bike and the hills are, well just not there… The frame for me is perfect size and fit (22.5″), it can be difficult to get the right size.
I love the regen!. I was not really that high on this before but having it is well worth the extra. Going down one hill every day at 60 km used to be a bit hair raising, especially when a car pulls out of a street when I was at peak speed 2/3 the way down. I didn’t like wearing out the breaks. Now it’s ~30 km. I’m not worrying half as much about losing half my body if I wipe out, and I’m generating. I doesn’t get much better than that.
Gearing is perfect and smooth as silk, well set up by the wheel man at Cit-E-Cycles. Found myself going too fast and I’m only on assist level 2 of 4. I have to remember that I still am recovering from that car door and some soft tissue damage, never mind 60 years.
Console and control is the best I have used. Even with winter gloves easy to turn on/off, lights, +/- and throttle all easy to use and access. Some of those functions were not easy with the previous consoles, -I end up having to take gloves off to activate lights or changing display, resulting in numb fingers this time of the year. Oh and console’s ability to be removed is brilliant. The issue with keys in the battery and locking the bike with the key was always an issue with the last two bikes, keys stick out, and lanyards for the keys get caught up in things.
Love the seat, will see how it work on longer rides on the weekend but so far excellent. The other components included with this bike are all top of the line and on this very slick frame it’s a package that I have not seen anywhere! If they don’t see me now with the lights this bike comes with then they aint’ looking! I know, it’s up to me anyway to look, but the lights both front and rear are as well, brilliant. Another home run.
Was into work by 0600 this morning as I just couldn’t sleep thinking about my first ride in. For me, this bike is the best bar none.Reply

Hi Ken, thanks for sharing your story! Sounds like you’re really enjoying the OHM with BionX. I agree, regenerative braking is pretty cool and the lights, fenders, rack, suspension and and overall build quality is just great :)Reply
