The Price

This bike is being sold at the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $995, making it among the rare electric assist bikes under $1000. The amazing part is that the ride is so smooth and the choices of how much assist you desire from the motor at any given time is so intuitive, that you have a hard time figuring out why you would pay more.
