Looking for a mid drive commuter for gravel and city roads. Typical commute is 15 miles or so, and would like to have sustained 20-25mph speed.
I have shortlisted the following
Cannondale Tesoro Neo X2 - 4100$
Trek Allant+ 7S - Trek - 4050$
Specialized Turbo Vado 4.0 - $4000
Gazelle Medeo T10+ HMB - 3700$
These 4 bikes are very similar? Any other brand I am missing in this class and type (class 3 mid drive torque sensing brose/Bosch 250W 75-85Nm motors)?
Specialized has the best display, but the lowest power.
I am not sure which of these have a suspension seat post, but a couple have.
Cannondale is sold by REI so the 10% member cashback puts it at Gazelle price.
SO I am confused between these 4. What are the pros of cons of these 4 bikes? Which one would you prefer, and is there any other brand I should look at in this price range (Need warranty support and local network)
Well what I meant is that the next few months will tell me about warranty or issues if any. I am hoping to ride this bike as my commuter setup for years to come. Its flat trails, with 2-3 mile long uninterrupted streches where I can speed pedal to go as fast as possible. Will be posting a review too!Next few years.
Ya, that's a no-name motor, battery, and the system It is not the "meat from a named animal".

You never stood by a Specialized Turbo e-bike Tom. It is not the modern Specialized battery. But what do you know?
Good luck with your first ebike, it won't be the last. I doubt you will have any issues, chinese motors tend to be reliable.Yes, I did .
But its 1700$ more than Priority current. If it was a specialized mastermind system at 4000$ pricepoint it would be better. But at 4300$+ tax this seems too less of an bike when I compare to 2500$ of a priority current. Which I ordered.
Next few months will tell me if I was wrong to go against the tide and choose an online retailer instead of the big 4
