I bought a Classica on July 4th. It was $1709, landed on my doorstep. They have bumped the price of the "used" option twice since I bought it.
I bought it for exactly the same reason you are considering one... hills. I just got tired of arriving at the bank or the grocery store dripping in sweat. This bike solves that problem very nicely. You just pedal normally and the bike takes care of the hill. There is a bit of a learning curve until you get the hang of it; you need to anticipate the hills and choose the proper gear and level of boost, but once you figure it out, it's a pleasure to ride.
I have learned that whenever you are considering buying anything, always check Amazon first!(I never even considered looking at amazon.ca for ebike options!)
