The electricbikereview.com is wonderful. This post is not met to be critical of this wonderful resource. I'm a road bike rider in my 70s and finally realized I can't keep up with the younger riders in my club (or some old ones who are just plain better riders than me). I got a Trek XM700+ after watching Courts review of it and love it. I do 30-50 mile club rides once or twice a week. It seems like the development of ebikes is focused on commuters and off road riders. Both are great! But, what about us road bike riders? Although I love my XM 700+, it cold be a lot lighter without much design work from Trek. It would be nice to have a Type in the forum that focused on Road Bikes.
