I love the look of this bike. Supposed to have an IGH and removeable battery. Something tells me it won't be cheap, BUT most factory ebikes are hideously expensive anyway.

This is a depressing thread.

Hey, when you are at Walmart be sure to pick up some long sleeve hi vis T shirts. Perfect for transitional weather, and when it is colder I wear them in layers.

You're not understanding. It bent the rim. To get an idea what the bend looks like, put a rim in a vice than twist the rim with a wide grip. Two kinks in opposite directions about 3-4 inches apart.
