This is a quiet, smooth-riding bike with a gearless hub motor. It is heavy and kind of gutless at lower speeds. There are plenty of accessories available. It also has good safety equipment. Unfortunately, our sample tended to get loose and wobbly whenever we took it off the pavement, and it’s only available in one frame size.

We have to keep monitoring ours to make sure it doesn’t shake itself apart. You won’t be able to check this one out before you buy, either, as right now you can only buy it on the Internet via crowdfunding. The battery pack placement could be better, and overall this bike just feels like a miss rather than a hit.
