Here are some quotes from the customers who have used Falco's classic line:

Bob V - " I love my Falco. This is really nice if you are having a hard time keeping up with someone you enjoy riding with."

Tom Z - "At 64 I need something to get me over those brutal hills, let me ride on those hot humid days or pushing a 20mph wind.  Also needing to keep up with my wife, 8 years younger and in excellent shape.  Me I'm a little over weight at 225 lbs just recouping from a archilles operation, being bed-ridden, on crunches and the dreaded big boot. I spending hours (in bed after operation) reading forums about hubs burning out, wires melting, and the constant tinkering some put into their systems.  I wanted one that just worked."

Don J (61 Year Old) - " Today I rode 34.4 miles and took the battery from 41.7 to 38.2 volts, using assist levels 1 through 5 depending on the terrain and wind.  It’s great to have help for hills especially. "
