Inspired by other testimonials to try a Volto bike for commuting instead of the usual 32km return car trip every day, I’ve just turned over 2,500km since February. A great experience and I look forward to it every day, in all conditions. It’s no problem on this bike, even though there are several steepish hills. Although I charge the bike both at home and the office, it is not really essential as the bike will easily do the return trip with power to spare. At $1 a km car running costs I have already more than paid the bike off, as well as getting some light exercise and fresh air on the way. And a 20/25minute car trip becomes a 35minute bike trip. And I get to say good morning to people on the way, rather than the silent bubble of the car. It’s all good! A great bike, thanks Mark.
