Compact: Easy to store and carry
95 Nm torque mid-drive motor: Offers an incredibly smooth riding experience.
576 Wh (watt-hour) battery: Even at full-throttle, you'll never worry about running out of power.
Hydraulic disc brakes: Reliable brake performance on one of the fastest electric commuter bikes around.

This bike works great for getting groceries and hauls my 200 lbs just fine!
Bike is easy to assemble. Order with confidence. Great value with solid customer service.
First impressions before riding.
white is actually pearl white, which in my opinion is even better,
a bike is much nicer in real life than in pictures
the quality of the bike is at a very high level and it can be clearly seen. The bike arrived on time, very nicely packed and easy to assemble. To be completely honest, it came with a few scratches but nothing much worth criticizing.
Now my personal opinion after 150 miles of riding to and from work. I am 5.9 feet and 220 pounds. My everyday round trip has 22 miles and two very tricky uphill climbs. I can easily make a full circle with a single charge of the battery and end up with one battery bar (of 5) at the end. I usually ride on PAS 2 or 3 on flat surface and overcoming uphill with PAŠ 4 or 5. So in real life if you use reasonable pedals you can count to go 30 miles if you are a heavy rider like me. Keep in mind that using the pedals here is very light and does not require almost any effort. The gearbox is well done and the makes all sorts of efforts very easy. The brakes are as premium as the shock absorbers. The maximum speed I reached on the flat was 28 mph and I think my bike can reach higher speeds too, but in my opinion that will be unsafe ride base on wheel size. .
The only real bike problem on my side is with very high pedal position. Even when you adjust the right seat height, the foot position on the pedals is almost impossible to make to be optimal (to be honest my legs are quite long so this may be an individual problem). I had a flat tire once, and on that occasion saw that the bedding on the wheel protecting the tube was completely twisted and jogged. Nothing too important, but it would be nice to increase QC in the future because I really have high expectations for this company
1. it would be really nice to have a better and much stronger headlight. This is not bad, but not enough for a serious night ride.
2. it would be very nice and useful if there was some light on the gearbox
So much for now
I waited 6 months and 1000+ miles before I reviewed, Great bike with good quality parts. I live in a very steep hilly area and I carry 50+lbs of cargo frequently this bike gets me up and over hills with minimal effort. Customer service was very helpful when I've had questions, and helped me decide on what bike would fit my needs best. I've hit some scary bumps at high speeds the wheels are very well built no bent or broken spokes. Haven't had to replace any parts. Would do business again.
So far I love the class M bicycle. I watched the assembly video. It skipped the first step. You have to remove the stem from the frame for the handle bars to fit. You may also need to use the provided metal rings to adjust the fit. This is not at all stated in the video. Also the new forks do not have a place to attach the mud flap bracket. There were two clamps that were included so I used those. I think the fork needs to add some screws so assembly would be better. As far as the bicycle goes, it’s solid. I didn’t get my first color choice but I did get my second. Seat is pretty comfortable. The class M does have a lot of power. I was able to ride up a few steep hills that were impossible in regular bikes.
