hi, my first time ever joining in on an online group and first time e-bike owner( when its delivered). ordered an X with 7-spd. and screen. i do a short commute to and from work with a one block hill,hope it all works out. i am an avid biker with 30+ years road biking and commuting. thought it was time for something new. what i have read from everyone so far has been fantastic, very informative and great to see so many people so involved. thanks for a tremendous amount of excellent info.i do plan on modifications in the future so many questions will be coming. thanks again to all and happy and safe riding.
