It's my first ebike and i love the design and concept. I commute 10 km single and now it's way easier to bike it. It gives me good exercise and lower cost and i just love to bike it; the sensor is giving me the right amount of support. I was skeptic about not having gears, but i really don't miss them and i agree it would have been redundant. I installed the SKS Edge mudgards which fit the design. All in all a friendly price for a great bike!
