http://www.bullsebikes.com/product/lacuba-evo-45s-diamond/Is there an eBike like this ePolice with a 28mph Brose ?
* Light Off Road Capable
* On Board Light(s)
* Suspension Fork
* 29er Tires
I could only share what was shown in the pics and webpages. They do update the specs from year to year.Thanks .
Just curious , which would you choose ?
I think the Brose may be a bit better of a hill climber ?
By the way , just contacted Trek online support , they insist ePolice does not come stock with integrated front light .
Perhaps it does not have an integrated light because each jurisdiction may have their own specific requirements for lights. Here in my area, I have worked on county police bikes, and they have special lights (including red and blue strobing lights) along with a horn/siren.just contacted Trek online support , they insist ePolice does not come stock with integrated front light .
e-boy-I really like this bike also. There was another dealer selling it with lower end components. My Trek dealer has verified that the listed components on their website do in fact come on the bike when ordered. Are you going to try and get a test ride or thinking about purchasing?I reposted what Ravi posted in another thread .
Both my dealer and Trek online support said there is no onboard lighting .
I'll be at my local Trek dealer in the coming days and will report back .
I did read on Trek.com that printed specs are subject to change !
e-boy-Great!Think about buying , I've tested it , but want to test again .
Like every bike , there's + and - 's .
You can ask any questions , but ultimately , you have to ride the bike for yourself in your environment .
e-boy-Thanks for your update. Sounds like a candidate for me being, I am mostly doing 50% paved and 50% gravel bumpy terrain on some of the trails that are bit too much crumbly and cracked terrain.I don't recall what your looking for in an ebike , but if your looking for a commuter on paved roads , and no off road , I would forget all the mid-drives and go for a rear hub drive !
Today after test riding the ePolice again , riding my push bike home , by chance , I saw an ebiker on the road , and had the opportunity to take his bike for a spin .
Wow ! Blew the ePolice away as a paved road commuter , and it was just a mid level purpose built ebike with a bafang rear hub drive .
I asked him about hills , which I didn't have a chance to ride , and he replied , this bike eats them like oatmeal !
I didn't ride the ePolice off road , and now , for me , that would be the only reason to get it .
So , I'm now searching for a rear hub ebike .
To answer your questions :
I rode the ePolice on flat paved roads and step grade hills .
There was lots of traffic today but I'll say got up to speed quickly .
Overall build quality like a tank .
No problem with controlling the Purion display .
Shifting was smooth at times , clunky at others .
There's just no substitute for riding the bike yourself in your environment .
Don't buy it unless you have a chance to test ride .
And as far as mid-drives , I'm not totally drinking the Bosch Kool-Aid .
It may be bullet proof reliable , but other drives have less resistance and feel more natural when peddling .
