Reviews of the VOLT™ Connect
Nick – Rating:
Absolutely love my VOLT Connect; I’ve had it a month and already done almost 600 miles. I have arthritis in my knees, and this summer I thought I was going to have to quit cycling altogether, but with this bike, I can go as far as I want to, pain-free. It’s literally life-changing. Great support from the company in response to a tech question, too.
