Well, your choice Steven. I ride one bought in better times.
Their marketing is brilliant , subliminal messages in the ads work too and it got a lot of newbies to buy them. Paint job is very poor but it says on the downtube something special and their customers EGO is bigger then an . Soooo it's a BIG power statement, hey i'm special .Specialized e-bike
This happens all the time here on many threads . The folks who actually gave ur post likes do it too LOL...Arguing about brands on a large forum is (IMO) dumb because there isn't that much difference between any of the major brands

Does that make the ebikers who argue about the brands dumb ? That's kind of dumb logic imo.
And NO ,there are many MAJOR differences between the big brands.
For ex. just 1 out of many FACTS : TREK has their OWN stores in NA. Specialized DOES NOT .
I didn't said that . My opinion: Trek is awesome , Giant is kind of 3/4 awesome and Specialized , look it's a great bike or brand if u like, but being so overpriced by about 15-40% depending on the models , doesn't make it that great for me and a few others.Giant is awesome and Trek and Specialized sucks" is dumb.
Hey there,That's why I never considered a Specialized e-bike or acoustic bike for that matter. They are already priced quite high compared to equally equipped models from other brands , and the dealers seem to have a "that's the price, take it or leave it" attitude.
While most manufacturers hold a dealer to MAP, (minimum advertised price-usually MSRP) they usually don't have the dealer agree to fixed pricing on actual sales. But apparently Specialized does.Dealers sign an agreement to all sell at MARC this is the Manufacture's set price, continent wide. Unless the item is blemished or damaged or used. Side bonuses such as, loyalty items, bonus gifts, dealer after market service incentives, prime race tickets, are not counted against MARC. Ask if they have a blem in stock. And some touch up paint for a tool drop nick on the chainstay. This gives a dealer wiggle room around MARC.
