This bike was not my first choice. I wanted a Norco Sight VLT but I also wanted a Gen 2 or 3 Bosch motor and the powerpack 500 battery system. Norco uses Shimano so that was a non-starter. I also wanted a Moustache Samedi Xroad 5 FS. The 2020 s use the powertube which are not compatible with my powerpack 500s so it needed to be a 2019. I also wanted the older CX which can easily be de-limited with a BIkespeed RS as opposed to the gen 4 which is not so easy to overide. Luckily there are still a few remaining 2019s to be had in my area. When I came across the Race 4 I saw it had everything I wanted except hauling capacity so I quickly bought it. I have another bike outfitted with bags and a trailer hitch so it can be the work horse and the Race 4 will be the thoroughbred.
