Well had my first ride out on the Orbea Gain road bike. Cheeky wee 23 miles on quite a hilly road system. Being practically double the weight of my carbon Pinnacle thought I was in for a bit of bother.. Brilliant piece of kit. Being the other side of 55 was starting to loose my cycling mojo especially when surrounded by so many hills that would challenge the more seasoned cyclists. 3 assist modes 1 being economy mode to preserve the inbuilt battery and assist 2 and 3 when things get a bit tougher. Also have a App on my phone that gives you all your information via Bluetooth from the bike. Speed , distance and battery gauge. Turned on Eco mode 1 and was on most of the trip and only had to go into assist 2 when I met a good 15 to 20 mph head wind that destroys all enthusiasm but soon back down to one when the going got easier. My only criticism would be the weight on the rear wheel electric motor you don't half feel every bump on the road but being a racing road bike was half expecting this against the hybrid e range. Once you stop pedalling the assist mode turns off and is like a ship dropping an anchor. Would have preferred the carbon frame but another £1000 maybe next time. If you want to keep your miles up and beat " The Hill " for us ageing cyclist's this the toy for you. Looking forward to my Whitelees Windfarm trip on Monday being a 30 mile round trip.... So far so good... GAS ...
