I REALLY like this bike. I've been able to ride it for two days now that the smoke has gone and I've put over 32 miles on it.
It is really well engineered - solid and adjustable just about every way you need it to be. Today I discovered that the seat post clamp has a thumb screw so I can easily adjust the seat on the fly. Not tools needed! It does mean you'd want to take the seat with you when the bike is out of sight.
It easily goes 23-26 mph without pedaling when you're in PAS 3. If you pedal at all the bike will supplement your pedaling to the top speed for the PAS level you have it set to. You can program it for up to 7 PAS levels and the top speed for each level will get more granular.
The speed limit on shared use paths around here is 15 mph and if I have the bike in PAS 1 it won't go over 14.
It goes fasted in each level when you use the throttle alone with no pedaling but it's quite easy to maintain a good speed with minimal pedaling due to the PAS boost.
The power up the steepest hill from a dead stop gave me 7 mph which is just fine. The regeneration down long hills while coasting twice made the power bars increase by 1 so that works!
One thing to note - the computer you get on the bike is the one in the pictures online but the manual they have a link to on the XC200 page isn't the right one. Go to the Blog on the web site and you can download the owner's manual (doesn't come in the box) and the correct computer manual - 80C - from Google drive.
