Thanks very much for your review. It’s good to hear from a rider from a hilly area, rather than just urban London or Brooklyn or etc. And thanks for pointing out that Holland doesn’t have hills!!! I hadn’t read that in any other review or comment. I think that’s significant. I live in Seattle. Lots of hills. I’m afraid my experience would be the same as yours. And if the big selling point is the anti-theft system, I’m wondering why purchasers aren’t mentioning renters’ or homeowners’ insurance, which normally covers personal property on and off your premises.
