Surface604 Rook - $1799

Boost at a bargain! 

A well-supported, feature packed electric bike with plastic fenders, a chain cover, integrated LED Lights, and an adjustable suspension fork

With shorter reach and an adjustable-angle stem, this ebike feels pretty upright and relaxed, the gel saddle and basic ergonomic grips provide a lot of comfort, along with the fatter tires

The pedal assist feels smooth and natural because it uses a torque sensor, satisfying trigger throttle, hydraulic disc brakes with motor inhibitors.
