It uses a three-speed Shimano internal hub so you don't have to worry about your chain slipping loose when switching gears.

The 36V, 5,800 mAh battery also doubles up as a rear light, and fits snugly inside the frame. You'll have to go through two locks above and below the frame to pull out the battery.

When pedaling it's actually quite easy to adjust the amount of electrical assistance you get from the controller. You can also sync your phone with the bike to track your distance.
