Been looking at eBikes for about 18 months and just got tired of analysis paralysis so narrowed it down in a very non-technical way. Who has been in business more than two year, has a reasonable positive following online and I wanted to buy local. I landed on the Aventon Aventure 2. Couldn't be happier and now enjoying all the research for add ons and upgrades. Need to adjust a few things like the rear rack and check all the bolt tightness, disc trueness stuff like that. Great group here.
