I have had my Eagle for about 4 weeks. I ride it in the hills near my house and it has taken everything I can throw at it. those tires and rims will not let you down on the trails. I also us it as a daily commuter. I have put about 30 to 50 miles per work day on this bike. if I have time I just use the pedal assist. but on those days when I am feeling a little lazy the power and range are there to get me to work on time. I will say that hill climbing is a breeze and break away speed will leave you shocked. as I am sure you have read. this beast is a wheelie machine. on the third setting you should lean forward to keep the front end down. the extra weight of this bike will keep it stable at high speeds. I have topped out at 54mph and I do believe that it could do more. (I think you guys limit the speed) in all I think this product is well worth the money and is one of the best bangs for your buck on the market. give it a try. you will not be let down or left at the back of the pack.
