Just a quick note about a new review on the Gazelle Orange Plus Innergy XT.
The December-January (2012-2013) edition of Ride-On magazine, published by Bicycle Network Victoria, has done a review on this bike. The reviewer, Simon Vincent, rates the bike at 99.5%!
Simon has ridden a number of eBikes and you can also read some reviews in his article from March 2012 'E-bikes charge ahead'. Interestingly, a previous model, the Gazelle Orange Pure Innergy, rated 99%. So clearly the Gazelle has been producing top-notch electric bikes for some time.
Looks like I've made the right choice!
Update: Omafiets Dutch Bicycles (a Sydney bike store and Gazelle seller) has published a link to the full review. You can see their take on the review here and their link to the magazine review here.
