After ordering THREE bikes, only to find that they weren't really in stock the first two times, I now have a Magnum Metro. It was a week late arriving, and only three weeks after I expected to have one. It was, however, worth the wait.
I took my first ride this evening. I was blown away, actually. I had been hoping the bike would be "good" for me, but it exceeded my expectations by quite a bit. It isn't perfect, but between the rearranged bar and controls (by the Velofix guy who assembled the bike, and by me), and the bike's great power and power handling, the "short shakedown ride" I had planned turned into a 22 mile outing in which I stopped less often to rest, felt less pain and traveled farther than I have in a couple of years. Based on this ride I'd say my effective range will be about 50 miles.
