Bought my Himo C26 nearly a year ago through a third party seller and I am so glad I bought this E-Bike. The range is amazing as is the battery life. I have cycled over 800 miles so far and loving it. Hills are no problem at all where I live and we have some BIG ONES. Battery recovery is excellent and the front suspension is really nice once you set it to your own custom feel. At the time of purchase this bike was a bargain and still is even now after nearly a year. Compared to most 5k E-Bikes with under half the range I would choose this bike hands down each time.
