Overall, I am very pleased with my Optibike Pioneer Allroad. This electric bicycle is well built, and very sturdy. Performance lives up to all of the marketing information.
The first two weeks I didn’t ride very far, as I was still getting familiar with the bicycle. However, in the last 5 weeks, I have averaged more than 100 miles a week. I typically ride 5 days a week along a paved 21 mile nature route. Before purchasing this bike, I struggled to ride my Raleigh about 4 miles a day. But this bike is a joy to ride!
Bottom line – I’ve lost 10+ pounds in the last 4 weeks! Also, I sleep like a baby every night. I used to have lower back pain (from a bulging disk), which kept me from riding more than 25 minutes a day. The Pioneer is so comfortable that I can easily ride for about 80 minutes – no problem. The battery range is more than adequate for my needs.
The speed is amazing. I can easily cruise (pedaling) at 18 mph, and I have passed cyclists on racing bikes at 23 mph. The look on their faces was priceless. The disk brakes have good stopping power. No rattling parts. Just a well designed, and a well constructed bicycle.
Now, I’m looking forward to losing the next 10 pounds. Thanks for selling a great bike.
