    For Sale: Trek Super Commuter 7+ $1,800.

    I forgot to add. The bike has always been stored inside. Never outside or in the garage.

    For Sale: Trek Super Commuter 7+ $1,800.

    Top speed is 20 mph. I've gone downhill 30 mph, with no issue. Some places will not let you ride an electric bike if it can go over 20 mph. Nice bike, and very comfortable to ride. The factory seat was swapped out for a comfortable seat. Rear light works, battery in very good condition.

    Electric Bike with battery on a car bike rack.

    When I first purchased the Trek Super Commuter 7+ and read the manual and the associated Bosch manual, the advice was not to transport the ebike on a car battery rack with the battery installed on the bike. Made sense since the Trek Suer Commuter is very heavy to begin with. I now own the...

    2020 Cannondale Synapse Neo 1First Impression

    Hello! You are gonna love the Synapse Neo. Light, fast, and fun to peddle. I have no suggestions on peddles. My bike shop put the peddles on and so far, they are working great. You can get fenders for this, and I may in the fitter, but right now, I do not need them. I've had no problems with the...

    2020 Cannondale Synapse Neo 1First Impression

    The Cannondale is my third electric bike. The electric bike has been a progression from I want to ride a bike again, to I want to explore and ride further distances. I have had a lot of joy riding my ebike, and in the process I am getting in shape. This Cannondale opens up the ability to go...

    2020 Cannondale Synapse Neo 1First Impression

    Hello! I believe it is the "red tap". But I'm not certain. I'm getting a carbon fiber drop bar handle that is sized for me. Yes, difficult to go back to mechanical shifting. I have this bike now on a trainer and I plan to stay in shape over this winter by riding this bike indoors.

    What's the Best Electric Bike, or at Least Your Favorite!

    I'll offer my thoughts here as I've owned 3 electric bikes. A little background on me. I used to ride a bike in my younger days. I am now 68 years old. I love adventures, fly airplanes, and am a commercial pilot. Life got the best of me and I stopped riding, exercising, etc. A couple of years...

    2020 Cannondale Synapse Neo 1First Impression

    I just tried taking the battery off and on as I was greatly annoyed with the response from Cannondale when I asked about the battery installation and removal. There is a secret to taking off the battery and placing it back on. Bike must be standing straight up. DO NOT TRY THIS WITH THE BIKE ON...

    2020 Cannondale Synapse Neo 1First Impression

    No, the Cannondale Synapse Neo 1 is a class 1 bike, meaning it is limited to 20 mph. Many states now limit the speed of electric bikes to 20 mph on certain roads and parks.

    2020 Cannondale Synapse Neo 1First Impression

    I thought I’d post a photo of the Cannondale electric Synapse Neo 1. This is an awesome electric bike to ride. To date, 21miles and no issues. I’ve named the bike “wild thing” as she, in a heart beat, could go faster than intended. I am able to peddle the bike without the electric assist, with...

    2020 Cannondale Synapse Neo 1First Impression

    The 2020 Cannondale Synapse Neo 1 was received yesterday, and I managed to squeeze in 5 mile ride before I began to get cold (41 degrees (f) and a light wind). Here is my first impression on this bike. WOW! This feels like a road bike and she is like a wild Mustang wanting to go throttle wide...

    2020 Cannondale Synapse NEO 1 vs 2019 Cannondale Synapse NEO difference?

    I looked at the Specialized Creo eBike web site. I then compared the bike to the Cannondale. The Creo is being advertised as 28 pounds. According to Cannondale, The Synapse NEO 1, medium size weighs 39 pounds. I do not know if that is with the battery on or off of the bike. But if it with the...

    2020 Cannondale Synapse NEO 1 vs 2019 Cannondale Synapse NEO difference?

    Thanks for the reply. I did contact Cannondale and they did the mumble part of what was different. Did not realize it is the much cheaper Neo 2. However, I think thy are looking at keeping the weight of the bike down, and the price of the bike down, which is why I think they are doing this. The...

    Looking for small/medium frame bike $0-2000 budget

    I think my Trek would work for you. It is a nice bike and has served me well. The motor is the Bosch mid drive with a 500 w battery. I am a woman, 5'2 inches and the bike works for me. What I do not like is, it is heavy and I cannot lift the bike onto a bike rack. I am looking at the Cannondale...
