Very nice. Price? It's not hard to be cheaper than a Swytch as they are like $800ISD shipped to the states?

My wife and I put about 3000 miles each last year on similar low powered ebikes. Don;t need big power to get outside and ride.

My motor and battery (52V) came in at just $200 more than that and it is a 750W mid-drive. There are any number of $400 to $500 500W - 750W hub systems available in the U.S. What is special about a $600 250W system???

Because I like it, that's why. I like the simplicity, and the overall look. Anything else?
