I've had a few ebikes in the past, and I know they don't last forever, so when I was shopping for an ebike to use around the harbor, I knew it might be good for only a few years. But I am super impressed with the build quality and power of the Alpha Speed. It's amazing that such an affordable ebike could be so lightweight, have so much power, and be built for the elements. I know I will have to replace the battery at some point, but this ebike is a keeper. Thanks Steve for the recommendation.
