Ampler Axel Review – City E-Bike with Hidden Battery
Ampler operates without physical stores, selling their electric bikes direct-to-consumer. However, they have several showrooms in different cities in Europe.
So I visited one in Tallinn, Estonia to test out Ampler’s newest eBike.
In this review, I share with you my experience and thoughts about Ampler Axel.
Table of Contents
Ampler Bikes Overview
Ampler makes lightweight electric bikes that don’t even look like e-bikes. It’s an interesting niche in the e-bike industry because there are a lot of people who don’t want their bike to stand out like high-dollar e-bike.
The company was started in 2014 in the home garage by 3 friends. After two years of experimenting, the first generation of Ampler bikes was launched.
Now, the small Estonian e-bike brand has grown into a reputable player in the highly competitive playground.
In the spring of 2022, the second generation of Ampler bikes was launched. They renewed their previous models ( Curt, Stellar, and Stout ) and brought out two completely new models – Ampler Juna and Ampler Axel.
In this article, we will take a closer look at Ampler Axel. I had a chance to test this bike and here are my honest thoughts about it.
Ampler Axel E-Bike Review
All 2nd generation Ampler bikes have a custom-made rear hub motor. The 250 W motor can provide 45 Nm of torque.
Although the bike doesn’t have any gears, the first pedal strokes were quite easy. It’s thanks to the torque sensor, which measures the strength of the pedaling and provides motor assistance accordingly. The acceleration is smooth and feels natural.
Since it’s a European e-bike, Ampler Axel doesn’t have a throttle. The motor works only when you are pedaling. The top assisted speed is 25 km/h. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t ride faster than that. If the speed goes over 25 km/h, the motor just stops assisting you.
One of the cool features of Ampler bikes is they don’t look like electric. The same goes for Ampler Axel.
The battery is hidden in the frame. It has a total of 336Wh of energy capacity and the estimated range is between 50-100 km. As always, the exact range of an e-bike depends on the weight of the rider, type of terrain, and assistance mode.
Braking and Gearing
Ampler Axel comes with hydraulic disc brakes with 2-piston calipers.
Brakes are definitely a strong part of this e-bike. I was amazed at how good is the stopping power. At the same time, stopping is really smooth.
As mentioned earlier, the Axel bike doesn’t have any gearing. Also, the bike doesn’t have a chain. Instead, it has a Gates carbon belt.
- Belt-drive doesn’t need maintenance
- It’s more lightweight than a chain
- Much quieter
- Lasts 4 times longer than chain drives
Frame and Geometry
The frame of the bike is made from aluminum alloy. I like that most of the cabling is internally routed. It makes the overall look of the bike very clean and stylish.
The geometry of the bike is active and road-like. The riding position is a great balance between sporty and relaxed. However, it’s not as sporty as another Ampler model – the Curt.
The bike comes in 2 different frame sizes. So it can fit a wide variety of riders.
Wheels and Tires
The Axel is equipped with 27.5-inch wheels. On top of that, there are quality tires made by Continental.
These tires are designed for the urban environment. However, they have some thread to provide grip on corners or in wet conditions. Additionally, these tires have a puncture-resistant feature, which makes your rides more carefree.
Ampler Axel has all the essentials to be able to ride in the dark as well.
It has a top-quality BuschMüller headlight in the front and an integrated rear light at the rear.
The rear light has a brake light feature, which increases your visibility even more.
A proper city commuter e-bike must have fenders. The fenders of Ampler Axel are very sleek.
You can easily ride the bike on the wet surface without worrying you ruin your clothes.
A nice addition to the first-gen bikes is the display. It’s integrated into the frame and provides info about current assist mode, battery level, range, and ride statistics.
The display shuts down when you are riding, so you can keep your FOCUS on the road.
You can control your bike via the app as well.
- set the strength of the electric assistance
- see the ride statistics
- see the bike location on a map
- update the bike’s software
- share access to your bike with your friends
Ampler Axel Review Conclusions
To sum it up, I can easily say that I enjoyed a lot riding with Ampler Axel.
Every bit of the bike is top quality and riding with it feels luxurious and comfortable.
Of course, it all comes with a price. Ampler Axel is not a cheap e-bike. It costs about €2,800. But considering the fact, that this bike is manufactured in Europe, has high-quality components, and comes with a 2-year warranty, it seems like a good deal.
So if you are looking for a trustworthy city commuter e-bike with great build quality, Ampler Axel might be a good option.

Intro to Best City Urban E-Bikes of 2023
Electric Bike Report aims to help consumers find the right electric bike for their needs. When you buy a product we recommend, we may earn a commission.
From cruising traffic-clogged city streets to scooting a few blocks to the office and back, the Electric Bike Report staff reviewed some of the best city and urban electric bikes on the market in 2023.
This is a broad category of e-bike, with dozens and dozens of bikes sold today that would work great as city and urban e-bikes. But there are some that are better than the rest, and we’ve listed our top picks below.
City and urban e-bikes are a part of the larger commuter bike category, but they have certain characteristics that make them, in our opinion, best suited for short-range commutes in densely populated urban environments. They’re usually a little lighter, a little more nimble and sometimes have a little less power and range than pure commuter bikes, though they may look extremely similar at first glance. Many of the bikes on this list have been put through the wringer by our team of qualified bike testers on EBR’s home roads and paths in southwest Utah, but some of them made the list on their specs alone — they were just too good to ignore.
Obviously, any bike can be a city and urban bike. You could happily ride a full suspension eMTB around the streets of New York City, but is that really the best use of that bike? Our goal is to help consumers suss out the best use for each e-bike we review. In the case of the bikes listed below, we feel that they’re most at home in a dense urban environment.
How we picked these bikes
There is an absurd number of e-bikes on the market today, and they come in all shapes, sizes, variations and intended uses.
Because of that, we’re not going to kid you or ourselves by claiming this best list is perfect. What this list is, is a hard-debated and long-considered inventory of, in EBR’s opinion, some of the best city and urban e-bikes on the market today.
Many of these bikes we know intimately: We’ve pedaled them hundreds of miles up hills, through traffic and we’ve even put them through a gamut of tests to fully understand how well they perform. But there are other bikes on this list that are here purely because of their reputation, and because our expert reviewers look at the spec list and think “I want that bike.”
We evaluated city and urban bikes based on a few key criteria, mainly:
- Range: How long will the battery last? And how long could you actually ride the bike before it becomes uncomfortable? City and Urban bikes typically need to cover shorter distances but they should be able to last for a solid day of riding.
- Weight: Could you carry the bike up a flight of stairs or lift it onto a bus? This is a tough bar to clear for most e-bikes, but we feel the cutoff for city and urban bikes is around 50 lbs.
- Maneuverability: Can the bike fit into tight spaces between cars and is it quick enough to dodge pedestrians? Also, does it fold up?
- Other: We also weigh a host of other variables, ranging from the type of rack(s) it’s outfitted with to the bike’s styling and body positioning.
Remember that many of these criteria are subjective. The EBR brain trust has a lot of experience on bicycles, but by no means are we trying to impress an elitist position on what bikes should and shouldn’t be used for. That’s the cool thing about bikes — especially e-bikes — you can do anything on any bike if you try hard enough.
Rad Power Bikes RadMission 1
An uber simple and ultra affordable city and urban e-bike we can’t get enough of
You’re going to be hard pressed to find a value priced e-bike we tested this year that our staff universally loves more than this one. The Rad Power Bikes RadMission 1 is not the prettiest e-bike nor is it the quickest, but by golly there’s few things we love more than a no-nonsense city bike that rides well and doesn’t break the bank.
The RadMission 1 is a single speed e-bike with a 500w geared hub motor powered by a 504Wh battery. It’s a Class 2 e-bike, so there’s a twist throttle and the motor will cut off at 20 mph. This, we found in our in-depth review of the bike, was plenty of oomph to speed around town and get up most any hill we threw at it. The bike has a steel frame, mechanical disc brakes, nice-rolling Kenda Kontact tires and a sturdy pannier rack on the back. It’s a very, very solid build for the low price point.
The bike looks urban and utilitarian, like it would be right at home locked to a bike rack on a New York City street corner. It also pedals nicely and sports a slightly less aggressive body positioning than Ride1UP’s Roadster V2, which also made it on this best list. We were really impressed by this bike’s battery life, which took us 37.22 miles during our real-world test before it gave out. It’s also surprisingly comfortable and handles very predictably.
This bike is perfect for anyone looking for a budget city and urban bike but doesn’t want to compromise function or ride quality. It’s a capable bike that won’t let you down.
Best electric road bikes: ebikes for a boost on road climbs
It wasn’t so long ago that the world of electric bikes was dominated by electric hybrids and electric mountain bike models. Alongside electric gravel bikes, electric road bikes are increasingly popular and, in some cases, look very similar to non-motorised machines.
A road ebike will have drop handlebars and a more sporty riding position than a hybrid – just like a conventional, non-assisted road or gravel bike. You’ll get the gear range to ride faster and to tackle hills, plus narrower road bike tyres for more Rapid progress on the road.
As with any road bike, reducing weight is important, although not usually at the expense of battery capacity and range. Electric road bikes will always be heavier than their conventional counterparts. However, some road ebikes will have carbon-fibre frames and lightweight wheelsets, bringing their weight down to under 12kg – not a lot more than some unpowered bikes. A road ebike’s handling will also be tuned for a sporty ride, so you can enjoy fast descents, while still getting a helping hand from the motor on the uphills. As with any electric bike motor, an e-road bike’s electric assistance will be limited to speeds below 15mph/25kph as per electric bike laws in the UK, EU and Australia. The limit is 20mph in the US. That’s more than enough for climbing – you’ll be able to climb much quicker than on a regular road bike – but could limit an e-road bike’s appeal on flat roads if riding in a fast group, for example. For more advice on what to look for in an electric road bike, our full buyer’s guide is at the bottom of this article, while we’ve also got a separate guide to electric bike types to help you choose the right motorised machine for you.
The best electric road bikes in 2023
Scott Addict eRide Premium
The Scott Addict eRide Premium offers the sleek looks of a regular road bike and a ride to match. Russell Burton / Immediate Media
- £8,349 / 9,299 as tested
- 1,040g claimed frame weight
- The looks of a normal road bike
- Rides like a non-assisted bike too
Scott’s Addict eRide borrows heavily from the Addict RC aero lightweight bike, with similar geometry and Scott’s top-spec HMX carbon.
It’s powered by the Mahle ebikemotion rear-hub motor, with its fully enclosed battery in the down tube, for a really clean look.
Power assistance is smooth, both in delivery and when it cuts out, so that you’re supported as you ride, rather than the motor taking over.
The eRide is available in a range of builds. The top-level Premium spec has a Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset, a fully-integrated Syncros Creston SL bar/stem and Syncros Capital carbon wheelset, for a sub-11kg weight – about as light as electric bikes come.
BMC Roadmachine AMP One
- £7,600 / €7,999 as tested
- Clever assistance
- Smooth ride
- Impressive range
Our tester judged the BMC Roadmachine AMP One “simply one of the best e-road bikes available”.
Its geometry and silhouette closely match those of its non-assisted sibling.
However, it packs in a Mahle X20 motor and a 350Wh battery for an impressively lengthy range aided by clever assistance management.
The handling is well balanced and The SRAM Force AXS groupset shifts with precision. Braking is excellent too.
The Vittoria Rubino tyres gripped and rolled well on dry roads, but wouldn’t be the best choice for more hostile winter conditions.
Bianchi Aria E-Road
- £4,500 / 6,500 as tested
- Stealthy assistance
- Great handling
- Sleek looks
The motor-equipped Bianchi Aria E-Road aero bike is blessed with the same great handling offered by its unassisted sister bike, the Bianchi Aria.
The Aria E-Road also uses an ebikemotion motor unit at its rear hub, while the 250W/h battery that powers it is concealed within the frame’s down tube. This makes for a road bike that appears unassisted, at least to the untrained eye.
Despite its appetite for speed, the Aria isn’t a bone shaker on rougher surfaces, thanks to its 28mm tyres.
The best compliment we can pay the Aria is it would work well as a non-assisted bike – it just happens to have a 250-watt boost on tap.
Bianchi Impulso E-road
The Bianchi Impulso E-Road doesn’t cut quite as sleek a silhouette as some electric road bikes. Robert Smith
- £4,400 as tested
- Ideal for those who aren’t as fit or flexible
- Punchy motor with impressive range
- Mudguard and rack mounts open further options
Unlike the racier Bianchi Aria E-Road, the Impulso electric road bike isn’t as much of a looker, but we were still very impressed with the ride.
relaxed geometry and a higher front end make it a good choice if you’re a rider who is less flexible, recovering from injury or looking to keep up with fitter riders.
The Polini bottom-bracket mounted motor system of the Impulso was another pleasant surprise, with plenty of power and an impressive real-world range.
Mounts for mudguards and racks mean this one will also make a great commuter bike.
Cannondale SuperSix Evo Neo 2
Based on the non-assisted SuperSix Evo, the Neo 2 hasn’t lost that bike’s looks or ride. Russell Burton / Immediate Media
- £5,000 / 6,500 as tested, now £7,000 (Neo 2 no longer available in United States)
- Ultegra-equipped, with Dura-Ace Di2 and 105 options available
- Great ride feel and impressive range
Another ebike that uses the Mahle ebikemotion rear-hub motor, the Cannondale SuperSix Evo Neo is based on our 2020 (non-assisted) Bike of the Year, the SuperSix EVO.
It’s inherited both that bike’s looks and its race-bike ride quality and responsiveness. There’s a long reach and low stack, as well as short chainstays for a performance ride feel.
Quality finishing kit includes Cannondale’s aero bar and stem, a Prologo saddle on a carbon seatpost, and Cannondale RDe alloy wheels, for a bike weight of 12.1kg in size large.
We managed 122km with 1,124m of climbing elevation on a single charge, comfortably beating the 75km claimed range. Above all, we were impressed by how well the motor worked with us, rather than dominating the ride.
Cannondale Synapse Neo SE
- £3,299 / €3,799 / 4,400 as tested, now £3,800 / 4,500 / €3,799
- SRAM Apex 1x drivetrain
- Bosch Active Line Plus 250W motor
- 500W/h down-tube mounted battery
- SRAM Apex 1x drivetrain, 650b wheels with 47c tyres
If you’re spending your time predominantly off-road but want drop bars and the flexibility of a motor then the Cannondale Synapse Neo SE is hard to beat.
The Synapse may be best known as Cannondale’s endurance bike but, with 650b wheels and massive 47mm WTB Byway tyres, the Neo SE is more gravel bike than road bike.
That’s not to say this machine isn’t sufficient on the road, but its ability to monster truck off-road terrain is seriously addictive. Bosch’s excellent drive unit provides generous assistance, even in its minimal-assistance Eco mode.
We managed to get in excess of 60 miles of power from the battery despite a test route that was almost entirely off-road. Cannondale also offers the new Topstone Neo as a dedicated electric gravel bike.
Focus Paralane² 9.7
The beauty of Fazua’s motor system, used on the Focus Paralane², is its unobtrusive nature. Robert Smith
- £4,999 as tested
- Modular Fazua motor can be removed
- Clearances for large tyres
- Resistance-free riding above motor assistance limit
The Focus Paralane² was born out of the prototype Project Y electric bike, and makes use of a removable Fazua motor. This minimal motor/battery system weighs only 3.5kg.
Remove the Fazua system and attach the included cover and the Paralane² effectively becomes a standard road bike, with minimal resistance from the gearbox buried in the bottom bracket. Without the motor, it weighs around 11kg.
The USP for the Paralane² is that the motor is designed to work in tandem with you. The result is unobtrusive power delivery with a feel that puts you in control rather than letting the bike take over.
We’d rather see tyres larger than the 28mm specced as standard, particularly seeing as this frame can accept 35mm tyres without issue, making it a great option for year-round riding or dabbling in light gravel.
Orbea Gain Carbon M20 MyO
- £4,718 as tested, now £4,699 / 5,599 / AU9,699
- Electric bike packaged with road bike looks
- ebikemotion hub-based motor
- New 2021 models offer significant updates
When it was announced, the Orbea Gain was one of a host of refined electric road bikes that eschewed the bulky ebike looks in favour of something more streamlined.
Built for a group test we conducted last year, our luxuriously kitted out Orbea Gain Carbon M20 was configured using Orbea’s MyO custom builder programme. The result was a bike that was a joy to ride, even with the motor switched off.
In 2021, Orbea updated both the carbon and alloy Gain, borrowing features from its OMX aero road bike, upping tyre clearance to 40mm, fully enclosing the cable runs and dropping weight to 11.8kg or less.
It also has integrated front and rear lights, its own head unit with an out-front mount for more info on the motor and battery life, and Mahle’s newest ebikemotion X35 Plus motor. Orbea says it has tuned power delivery to more closely replicate the feeling of riding an unassisted road bike.
Specialized S-Works Turbo Creo SL
The Specialized S-Works Turbo Creo SL is one of the most expensive e-road bikes on the market, but it’s an impressive machine to ride. Russell Burton / Immediate Media
- £10,999 / €12,499 / 13,500 / AU19,000 as tested
- High spec with Dura-Ace Di2, a power meter and Roval carbon wheels
- Stable, smooth, nimble ride
You’re paying a superbike price for the Specialized S-Works Turbo Creo SL, one of the most expensive electric bikes available. But the high-spec frame and top-drawer specification, including Roval CLX50 aero carbon wheels, Dura-Ace Di2 shifting and a built-in power meter, help justify the outlay.
Ride quality feels like the Roubaix endurance bike and the Turbo Creo SL even comes with the FutureShock 2.0 headset damper fitted to that bike. The motor weight sits low down to ensure stability and it’s nimble despite its 13.7kg weight.
The claimed 130km range from the internal battery is increased to 195km with the included range extender, although we didn’t quite match these figures.
Trek Domane LT 7
The Trek Domane LT 7 is equipped with a Fazua Evation motor and comes with the superb Ultegra Di2 drivetrain. Russell Burton / Immediate Media
- £7,800 / 9,200 / €7,999
- Lightweight Fazua motor
- Great ride comfort and handling that can cope with gravel too
The Fazua motor system on the Trek Domane LT7 drops the weight down to 13.8kg and is removeable, so you can ride the bike like a non-assisted Domane too. Like the non-electric bike, it incorporates Trek’s IsoSpeed front and rear decouplers and IsoCore bars for loads of road comfort that transfers over to light gravel rides.
We got over 100km range with 2,000m-plus of climbing – impressive, as is the handling and comfort on offer.
Buyer’s guide to electric road bikes: what to look out for
Electric road bike motors explained
The ebikemotion rear-hub motor is a popular choice for electric road bikes. Russell Burton / Immediate Media
Electric road bike drivetrains are sleeker and more covert than ever, with low-profile batteries often fully enclosed in the bike’s down tube or disguised as a water bottle.
Electric road bike motors tend to be compact and hidden away in the bottom bracket shell or the rear hub – a far cry from the bulky units of old – while controllers are often small, with a tiny button in the front of the top tube being an increasingly popular placement, although you’ll also find bar-mounted controls. That can lead to a bike that at first glance is hard to distinguish from a conventional road bike.
Fazua and ebikemotion motors are a popular choice seen on many e-road bikes thanks to the progressive power delivery well-suited to road riding, although Bosch units and own-brand motors from the likes of Specialized can also cut a minimalist silhouette.
Electric road bike batteries explained
Most electric road bikes have a battery enclosed in the bike’s down tube. Again, that leads to an unobtrusive look. In the case of Fazua, you can drop the battery pack out of the down tube for recharging, or remove it to take it indoors closer to an electric plug. You can even remove it completely and ride the electric bike like a non-assisted road bike.
Other batteries such as ebikemotion’s are more firmly lodged in place, though, so you need to be able to get the bike to a socket to add some juice.
Typical battery capacities are around 250W/h – usually enough for 60km or so of range, although you should be able to get more than that on flatter ground with judicious use.
How much does an electric road bike weigh?
Electric road bikes undoubtedly make climbing a faster affair, but the added weight can be a hindrance when riding fast on flat roads. Orbea
The lightest electric road bikes tip the scales at 12kg or less, which isn’t a lot more than some unpowered bikes. That’s achieved by having a frame and fork made of carbon fibre, often accompanied by carbon-rimmed wheels. That tends to be a pricey menu.
Weight is important, though. On the flat, many road riders will be managing over the 15mph/25kph legal limit (or 20mph in the US) at which the motor cuts out, making the motor and battery a dead weight above those speeds. Keeping the bike’s weight low will make riding without assistance easier, adding to performance and enjoyment.
On the other hand, a more robust, heavier build could be an advantage if you’re aiming to mix in gravel riding. Weight is also less of an issue if you plan to predominantly ride within the legal limit for motor assistance.
Electric road bike wheels and tyres
Just because a bike’s battery-powered, doesn’t mean the finishing kit has to be sub-par. Scott Sports
With more power delivered to the road and a heavier bike weight, electric road bikes tend to have wider tyres than standard road bikes. Many pair that with beefed-up wheels with alloy rims, although higher-spec models may come with aero carbon hoops.
Tyre width on electric road bikes tends to start at 28mm. That’s not unusual on a pedal-powered road bike now though, and provides a more comfortable ride, with additional versatility for rough roads or dabbling on light off-road trails.
Can you convert a road bike to an electric road bike?
While less common than, say, an electric hybrid conversion, it is perfectly possible to convert your road bike to an ebike.

This is my first e-bike. This is a sleek, zippy, lightweight e-bike. I researched a lot. There are not that many’stealth? options out there so Hurricane is a great option for the price.
I honestly was surprised that I would receive an ebike of this quality at this price point. I rode a total of 35 miles with a short climb up the mountain, which is the picture I posted here. I used 4 out of 5 bars of battery life. I still ride my carbon framed Specialized Tarmac Pro for long distances but felt so liberated riding the Hurricane because 1) I didn’t have to shift, 2) I didn’t have to unclip from the pedals, and 3) the ride was quite effortless in headwinds. I highly recommend the Hurricane to anyone who is on the fence about buying an ebike.
I’m in love with mine. a beautiful, smooth and comfortable ride! Love everything about it cause it’s perfect !!
The bike arrived in a week packaged well. Assembly was easy with more than enough juice in the battery to go for a spin. I LOVE the bike. It feels very tight and safe at 20 mph. I seem to get more battery life than expected using assist level 1 most of the time. The great thing about the bike is the ease getting it in and out of my van. After 2 weeks of riding nearly every day I feel confident to go for long rides. Way beyond expectations for the price I’m expecting years of riding without issues.
It’s a cool e-bike, didn’t like the skinny tires it comes with, so I replaced them with some better ones! Not very fast; I brought it for exercise. Nice looking bike-good quality…it’s a cool ride.

When I got the KBO Hurricane, I was immediately impressed by how lightweight it actually was. I had no problems picking up the electric bike and moving it around.
Between the low-maintenance design and decent battery range, you can ride with confidence that the Hurricane will get you where you need to go.
It’s a cool e-bike, didn’t like the skinny tires it comes with, so I replaced them with some better ones! Not very fast; I brought it for exercise. Nice looking bike-good quality…it’s a cool ride.
Bought mine a year ago. I ride this bike once or twice a week for 15 to 20 miles on rails to trails. I confess that (contrary to manufacturer’s recommendation) I swapped out the road tires for a very light hybrid tire that give a bit better grip on dirt paths. My wife rides a hybrid non E bike. We ride at about 12 mph. I use my assist about 10% (max) of the time. The battery lasts for six to seven rides (I recharge at 2 bars). The gearing without the assist is so smooth (even without gears) that assist is not necessary on flat or slight uphills. If that is your ride profile, this bike is PERFECT. This is so much more than a road bike!!
Yes, I also like this bike, for sports and for walking the best thing.
I love to ride for exercise and recreation but wanted to try an e-bike to help battle hills and headwinds sometimes. I also wanted it to let me ride without assist easily, look like a regular bike, be simple, and inexpensive. The Hurricane is fantastic. I rode 53 Mi so far, have used assist approx 40% of the time (mostly level 1 and 2). and have 3 of 5 battery bars remaining. I found it easiest for me to maintain 14-16 mph. For reference, I’m 55 yrs old, 5′ 9″, 30″ inseam, and 185#. The bike came boxed and protected very well. The bell was broken but easily repaired and there were a couple of very minor scratches on the rear hub motor and a few spokes (probably from assembly). I am normally very picky but for the price, expected minor imperfections. I would definitely reccommend the Hurricane. Thanks KBO.
Worth every dime and more!
The KBO Hurricane is the best bike I have ever owned. The functionality is exceptional and the price is beyond fair. The quality is outstanding and lives up to the advertisements and prior reviews. I would recommend and have recommended it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced electrically assisted bicycle. Just purchased another for my wife. Great job KBO!
Do this bike come in female style as well or just men? If so I would like to see the Female as well. This way I can order 2 thank You.
Very satisfied with the bike. Also, customer service is great! Nothing on the market that I’ve is a better bang for your investment.
