Opened the box finally now with warmer weather. Found some paint worn off on spots of the rear carrier rack. May have occurred enroute while shipping. Bike was well packed so not sure how that happened. After assembling, worn in brakes according to manual, Rear brake does squeal so hoping that goes away in time. There is also a intermittent rubbing or scraping sound whenever in PAS 5. Hope that also goes away with more riding.
Now the good: Like the display monitor, the cork handle grips, & the front/rear lights. Also like the limited gears, (7), which after riding find that is all that is necessary with the PAS. LOVE the thumb throttle! I ride in a hilly area and a quick, momentary throttle boost is just the ticket rather than trying to hunt PAS for the right assist level when ascending a short, steep hill. Overall the assist is quite good and makes riding a bit more enjoyable.
Can't wait for family to try the Boogie bike. I am sure they will be impressed, but unsure how we'll determine who gets to ride it when we are out as a group!
