We bought two Pedegos for fun and exercise. These are great bikes and worth the money. They are beautiful. The only modification we made was to change the handlebars to a 5 inch riser type which makes our ride more comfortable and secure for our taste. The battery lasts a very long time inspite of our hilly terrain. Lately we have purchased a Sar is hitch mounted carrier to explore other areas with bikes. Because the bike weighs 50 lbs. due to the motor, only a hitch mounted carier will do the job safely. We are very pleased with Pedego’s customer service support and with the excellent product they produce.
