Bottom line

The Addmotor HITHOT 26 Inch Power 500W Mountain Electric Bike is nicely designed and attractive model that can offer the real biking experience on the steepest hills. But if you just want to use it for commuting around city streets, it doesn’t disappoint either.  It is equipped with a powerful brushless motor and a quick recharging battery along with 5 levels of pedal assists that can help you reach a maximum speed of 25 miles/hour.

It is a premium price but you do get a lot of bike for your money. If you are technically challenged I would suggest taking advantage of the free assemble or at least partial assemble. If you like the Addmotor build but don't need as rugged of a bike then the Addmotor Hithot H1 comes in for less money and also weighs less. Could be better option for a smaller user.
