Trihonda-Thanks for the updates on the Trek PE issue. I kinda believe what you are saying is true about the restrictions made by Trek corporate.Visited the Trek world HQ today... Snagged my ebike from them. We had some rain locally yesterday, so unfortunately their private secret test singletrack was closed...
I also spoke with the reps in charge of their ebikes, who explained they were made aware of the police ebikes being sold to regular consumers through their stores. I was told they nixed that a month ago to restrict sales to LE agencies. I believe it has something to do with this being a beefed up MTB frameset, and a class 3 motor? I can only guess they didn't want MTBs on trails doing 28mph? I didn't pry on the subject.
I'm looking forward to getting the bike out for more than the short 20 minute ride around my neighborhood after I got home...

So you were at the HQ in Waterloo to do your E-bike pickup? My LBS indicated Trek was very strict for them to release the bike to buyers with the 'Police' sticker on it. Perhaps there is an exception if picking up directly.
BTW-Thanks for posting a pic. Your new bike looks perfect straight out of the factory. Perhaps you can provide any updates posting how you like it, pros and cons, etc. Enjoy!
