Okay, I have been a competitive road cyclist for a zillion years. When I was researching electric bikes I wanted something that didn’t look and feel like tank. I also wanted a bike that allowed me to ride and “add” assistance when I wanted. I was curious if any of the offerings would have software upgrades in the future to stay ahead of the changing technology. Enter VELA! It has hit all of buttons and has turned out to exceed my expectations!

But the questions I have asked have been responded to in record time. These guys are for real. Order yours now. You will be disappointed!
