    Turbo Como 4.0 vs Turbo Vado 4.0 Step-Through

    Yep so my wife has the VADO 4.0 now about a week and rode it 2x for maybe 20 miles total. She loves it and the geometry is fine- but I had to go into the mission control app and crank down the sensitivity of the power pedal assist on LEVEL 1. She felt it came on too quickly and with too much...

    Turbo Como 4.0 vs Turbo Vado 4.0 Step-Through

    The vado is more aesthetically pleasing in my opinion - and my wife is leaning towards the more sporty geometry...I honestly don't think either is a bad choice.Weight wise its Como's 48 lbs vs 52 lbs for the VADO. Although clearly a difference...not a enough of a needle mover - so that's less of...

    Turbo Como 4.0 vs Turbo Vado 4.0 Step-Through

    That’s quite helpful - the perfect case study! I wouldn’t say she’s completely new to cycling but someone that would like to become more confident and already a capable athlete. I almost think the Como would be something, for lack of a better term, she will grow out of or evolve out of. They’re...

    Turbo Como 4.0 vs Turbo Vado 4.0 Step-Through

    I figured I'd gather some opinions. I am looking to purchase an e- bike for my wife who is 5ft2 120 (I ride a cannonade e-Contro) and I like the fact that the Vado has a suspension fork but slightly concerned about its geometry maybe being " too aggressive" since she is petite. Obviously from...

    Anyone have the 2019 Verve+ ?

    Just wondering where everyone purchased their Verve? I am in the NYC/LI area and the local TREK dealers don't stock it-Looking to pick up one for my wife potentially- hopefully a 2019 with some attached saving$$ Thanks!

    Bosch eBike Updates for 2020 - Generation 4 Motors | CX | Cargo | Speed

    Chris, great to see you produce some informative video. I had a great experience buying my Cannondale E-bike through your shop and now on the hunt for an e bike for my wife. This was helpful since it provided up to date info on Bosch which is what my current bike uses. I am interested in staying...

    Known Issues & Problems with Cannondale Products + Help, Solutions & Fixes

    I have this same bike and love it. I don’t depend on the kickstand white at home but purchased a stand that you wheel the front wheel into and that supports most of the bike, while the kickstand acts as additional support. I use the lock that came with the bike sparingly and only as a second...

    Cannondale Contro-e Short Review

    I own this bike a few months longer then you do TFORAN and I have to say it was a great purchase. I got it at around the same price point you did and I couldn't be happier. Its not a popular bike since the marketing in the US never seemed to push it but what a value now that they are blowing...

    Request for help deciphering specs on Cannondale Contro-E Speed 28mph bike

    Agreed 100% - great deal on this bike. For some reason its under the radar but an incredible bike that I could not be happier with. Did you buy it in NYC?

    Poll: Do you wear a helmet when riding

    Always wear a helmet- even if the law doesn't mandate so. Cmon is this really not common sense?

    Request for help deciphering specs on Cannondale Contro-E Speed 28mph bike

    Just following up here for anyone that might benefit from this thread. Indeed Cannondale has a misprint on the their US Spec Sheet for the Contro E Speed. I spoke with customer service in CT directly myself. To be clear its a Bosche performance speed motor with 350W (Not 250w which was listed)...

    Request for help deciphering specs on Cannondale Contro-E Speed 28mph bike

    Agreed. It seems it would have to be 350w. I just left my local Cannondale dealer frustrated. This particular shop did not have anyone knowledgeable about E-bikes in general (even though they technically sell them) let alone the Contro E. I am still seriously considering the Contro E b/c at...

    Request for help deciphering specs on Cannondale Contro-E Speed 28mph bike

    Nova- thank you for your valuable input. I had noticed that Cannondale states "Motor SpecsBOSCH Performance Speed 250 W". 250w? If Cannondale uses the Bosch Performance Line-speed wouldn't the nominal output be 350w as stated on the bosch page? However on this page it states "BOSCH PowerPack...

    Request for help deciphering specs on Cannondale Contro-E Speed 28mph bike

    Hey Bruce! Yes I have checked out Courts Review and like most here, I think I have watched every video Court has done-it's like binge watching a Netflix series. He is great. The main difference is the that the E-speed has 26" wheels vs the Rigids 24" and of course a Derailer on the E-speed vs a...

    Request for help deciphering specs on Cannondale Contro-E Speed 28mph bike

    Nova- I appreciate your input.Thank you for taking some time to answer. Yes Im aware it has the larger battery (definitely a must!) I did not see where Cannondale listed the Torque rating of 63nm or is that just the standard across any bike when using the Bosch Performance Mid Drive? Agreed it...
