This is a sleek, zippy, lightweight e-bike. It's a no-frills experience but overall fun to ride. Upgrades and customization were/are necessary for me though.
For context: To purchase my Roadster V2, I sold my less expensive e-bike by another maker. This bike was foldable, more powerful, faster, had a throttle, and came standard with a features that are non-existent here (front/rear lights, kick stand, fat tires, front/rear fenders, and a rear rack). But this bike also weighed literally twice as much as the V2, and my new commute demands a lightweight e-bike. I consider the price of the V2 fully justified by it's speed, weight, and the ratio thereof!
- the seat in it's lowest position is above the handlebars, therefore the ride position is too aggressive for me (to the point of discomfort). Riser bars and/or a stem riser are in order, though the existing cable length doesn't look like it can accommodate both. Swept back bars will be enough for some people who feel similarly abou
