my husband put the bike together fairly easily in about 2 hours. he had to go back and redo a couple of things, but we quickly had the bike up and running. went on a long, scenic ride together the next morning and the ride was awesome! the functions worked smoothly and e-assist seamlessly kicked in when i needed it on the challenging hills. i had rented an e-bike for the first time in tuscany last summer and loved it -- this bike is so much nicer! my husband is the bike rider in the family, but now we can ride together. we have a home in columbia county, ny, very hilly. up until now, the riding was just too challenging. this bike opens a whole new world! already of thinking of buying a second one so that vistiors can ride too!
This is an excellent bike that met and exceeded my expectations. I was hoping for a daily commute bike (24 miles round trip) that would allow me to sustain life without a car. To date, I have used a car for a total of 10 miles of driving in the last three weeks.
After miles upon miles of use the bike still feels very solid and it is light enough to bike with or without electric assistance. Having assembled a lot of the bike myself I feel a little kinship with the construction :). Also, the extra push to 28 mph is occasionally helpful for passing through an intersection and helps me feel a little more confident in short stints where I have to 'take the lane' to stay safe.
The battery gauge seems to be rarely accurate but it does gives a basic heads up as you start run down toward the end of the battery capacity which I have never managed to do yet. I have seen some reviews about how the electric pedal assist is not as-expected. I didn't have an an expectation about the way the pedal assist was supposed to work and I am not disappointed by it. In fact, I kind of like that it essentially stops assisting at a certain speed for each level of PAS which, to me, means it is prolonging the battery usage on downhills or flats where I can maintain the speed myself.
They put a lot of thought on user friendliness on this bike which is not done often enough. Comfortable handlebars and seat, easy shifting, reliable construction and most importantly the pedal assist and throttle functions are amazing and let you go distances I could not otherwise and let’s me catch my 2nd breath. Highly recommend.
All kidding aside, this is a fantastic run around town bicycle. Shipping was immediate, the packaging was great, we put it together in about an hour with the youtube tutorial. Charged the battery and I was off and riding. Taking it out for a spin for the first time was amazing. Can't wait to get it out on the local bike path. For the first time in a long time, I feel that I'll be able to ride those longer distances. That little "boost" certainly helps with those pesky hills. Thanks Aventon, for making such a high quality bike. I would absolutely recommend this bike, so much so, I got one for my better half. : ) Now we have 2!!
This is a well made product. It has more power than expected. The battery life is good. It's lots of fun. We got it for my wife who is 64. I love biking and we thought this would be a way that we can ride together. Generally, she likes it.
However, the sudden acceleration is a bit much for her. I wish there was a way to decrease the acceleration. It surges/lunges a bit when the motor kicks in at low speeds. I'm fine with it, and all of our kids love it - but it's hard for my wife to get used to. The motor is either on or off. You cannot regulate the power to the motor. The speed settings just turns on/off the motor at different speeds.
