This is a great bike for £2,554.99 that I paid for it but it is not worth the £3900 rrp as there are far better bikes on the market at this price point. After much research and a days ebike hire I decided that I wanted a full suspension bike with the Shimano motor, a removable 500w battery and at a cost nearer 3k as opposed to 4K. One review that I read stated that the Shimano brakes had no place on a bike costing £3900, I would agree with this. The bike is good for the riding that I do around the Purbecks and I`m pleased that at 60 years of age I`m more inclined to get out irrespective of wind or rain as I`ve got the battery assist to help me home. I do try to stick to the eco mode but the boost mode is insane and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. I dislike the face that there is no bolts to mount a bottle cage/pump. The gear change is clunky and chain slap has already damaged the paint on the frame. I do find the saddle uncomfortable but butts are all different. In hindsight I do wonder if I could have got away with a hard tail as the large volume tyres do provide a degree of suspension. For me the bike represented the best value currently on the market, hence my decision to buy plus an ebike allows you to go further, faster and more often.
