Well after a lot of umming and ahhing I've finally decided to buy a Raleigh Motus. I test rode one yesterday and couldn't stop smiling. The motor is a bit noisier than I would like but not enough to be a deal breaker. Going uphill was brilliant even in Economy mode, loved it. £2000 seems a lot to spend but if it gets me enthused about riding again it will be worth it. Only downside is waiting until I can collect it from LBS but that's my request NOT them being slow. Ticking off the days. Big thanks to Anne W top for her enthusiasm for this machine.
