        Excellent Ebike for the Price

        Didnt write review until I put about 100 miles on bike. So far it works great. Was easy to put together. I purchased the fender package too and it took longer to mount them than put bike together because my finger are too big to get into screw locations. My first ebike and am very happy with it. Seat was a little uncomfortable so I replaced it. Im 6 and 260 lb and it has plenty of torque to help me along.
