    I want to upgrade: Specialized Turbo Vado vs. Trek Allant?

    I am nuts over riding my ebike, since purchasing a Trek Verve +3 Step-through. I am considering an upgrade to either the Trek Allant or Specialized Turbo Vado.

    How does Pedal Assist on the top Electric Mountain bikes compare to Rad Rover/Volt Yukon etc

    I want to get back into mountain biking. And I have owned a RAD ROVER E-bike for 3 years now. I actually love it. But its not a "mountain bike". Obviously The Rad rover has a throttle, and also pedal assist 1-5. And the Top name mountain bikes (Specialized,Trek, Cannondale, Haibike etc) Are...

    Trek Super Commuter 7 - $3599

    This is a really nice bike for the money. So glad to see this version of the Super Commuter. Some of the components are downgraded from the SC8+ but they are still adequate and for the money/service, this seems like a great commuter bike.
