I absolutely loved this bike from my first trial ride - it had just arrived in the store! Its systems feel totally intuitive to me (it it just because I'm German too?), it is extremely well balanced and the gears are wonderful. I love its particular trick of giving immediate strong assistance when starting up from standing on a slight hill...and the push assist, on steeper hills. Because yes, you will appreciate that, because its one weakness is, as with my previous bike, conquering the really steep hills which it slumps on after a short while
I look forward to every single journey with it, come rain or shine, and even in darkness as the built-in lighting system is brilliant and actually lights up the road for you! I am so happy with this and am confident it will do me for a good many years!
