Anyway, this is my first ebike and I've officially caught the bug. It's a great way to get around my Big Ten college town. I cut down a solid chunk of the rear mudflap, as it was always rubbing against the tire, and tightening it in did not help. I've read this isn't an uncommon problem with the metro. Working on getting an extended seat post...at 6'5" my pedaling is way inefficient even with the seat all the way up. That being said I do pedal constantly and enjoy the bit of exercise it gets me. I knew this would be an issue with any ots ebike I got, but I couldn't turn down this deal.
It's heavy, and carrying it up and down the half flight of stairs to my apartment is a bit of a hassle, but really not that bad. I would like to see how a lighter ebike handles, b/c the metro is a bit tankish.
So far so good, the bike's definitely a headturner. Can't wait until spring!

Anybody know if that is a feature of the EU/pedal assist bikes? Or if controler just dumps more unregulated amps into the motor?
In england and probably the rest of the EU the A2B Metro is limited to 250W unless you press that "off road button" then it becomes a normal 500W A2B Metro.
