I test rode one yesterday. The bike is so comfortable and unintimidating. I found it plenty of powerful for commuting if you don't need a snappy acceleration. I tried it on a steep hill in town. I powered up to Turbo and geared down to the lowest gear and maintained 8mph all the way up. I ended up buying a Powerfly 5 because I like to do some heavier duty trail riding, but the Verve+2 is an elegant, simple, attractive bike.Hi All,
I was hoping you might provide your thoughts on using a 2020 Trek Verve+ 2 as a daily commuter. I am 5’ 11” and weigh 150lbs. I intend to put about 25 miles per day on this bike, with a few significant hills on my route. And I intend to ride it rain or shine. I like the Verve as it seems to have the things important for commuting, but hopefully keeps me from overbuying. Thank you for your input!
