Elby was recently reviewed in Forbes Magazine:

elby s1 electric bike saleThen there’s how smooth it is across the board — everything from the gear shifting to the ride suspension is effortless and blissful. The model I’ve been riding is the 9-speed rendition, although there is also a single-speed version available. Its padded seat is heavenly. The balloon flat-free tires help mute any street bumps. There’s a throttle button you can push: As long as its held down, the bike will accelerate up to 20 miles per hour on its own, so you can rest your legs.

But I like to pedal. And the bike’s electric pedal assist is both noticeable and subtle when you engage it — not jerky as some systems can be. This one can be set to four positive levels, to enhance your pedaling ability, and four negatives, for use on downhills to engage the regenerative brakes. Meaning it actually creates and stores its own battery power that you might need later in your ride.
