Very interested in Pedegos but open to other brands. Budget is between $2,000-$$3,700.
Looking for the fun of a fat tire bike for occasional off road trails, but mostly on paved country roads, but with a very comfortable Cruiser seat. I'm not a small guy so power on inclines is also important. Thanks very much!

Take a look at the Catalyst from SmartMotion. 28mph speed pedelec with a 500w rear hub. Its a hard tail with front suspension and a perfect bike for both the road and trails. Great range with an available 17.5/48V battery. If you want more info you can find detail and reviews at (Link Removed - No Longer Exists). You can swap out a seat on just about anybike. What we recommend is a suspension seat post called a Body Float.

Pedego's are good, you might also want to look at e-lux Tahoe fat tire cruiser bikes, they'll ship anywhere in the US for $150. Here's Court's review.

I would give a hard look at Emotion bikes. The parent company is a 100 yr bike manufacturer,hence choice of frame sizes. Fit is still critical. Good quality components with company support. Bring a little more $ to the table and look at haibike. Best of luck in your search.

I got my 2016 Haibike XDuro S Pro for the top end of the listed budget and I have been very pleased with it. I'm also that same size and the 55 cm frame is working for me. Those bikes were 40-50% off retail at the end of the year.
