The relative light weight, simple functionality, ease of operation of the Populo V-3 are all big positives. This is a fun bike to ride. For future frames it is clear that the rear brake bridge needs to be a few millimeters higher. One solution is to fit slightly lower profile and higher performance tires, which I'll probably do anyway. This is a great bike for cycling aficionados who want to try out an e-bike, as it is reminiscent of fixies and single speeds. It is quite hilly where i ride, but with the electric assist no additional gears are really needed. I would love to see an upgraded version with lighter cranks, wheels, tires. As it is, this bike is a terrific value in the e-bike world.
