Too much power, too much range, and frankly too heavy. This thing will go on demand, and keep going. I have yet to kill it. Just minor tune ups as always. Shifting is actually very easy, contrary to what it looks like. This bike may become a parts doner for a more ideal electric bike. Keep an eye out for it.
