Lost 10 Pounds and Sleeping Like a Baby

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.
