Bought this bike for my wife so that she could keep up with me when we go riding. Only problem is, now I'm going to have to order one for myself so I can keep up with her. The bike seems to be very well made and was easy to assemble. The bike is fairly heavy, so you have to consider the weight if you put them on a rack. This was my first ebike purchase, so I don't have anything to compare it to other than bikes I've looked at in local bike shops. At $1000 to $2500 less cost, I think it was a very good deal.
