375 seems a little low to me as well. Mine's a 500. That being said I suppose it's all about the motor, programming, weight and route. 30mi should be fine. More is always better though.@Marci jo Thanks! Sorry I should have been more specific, I prefer to sit more forward than upright or back. The Haibike is mostly upright but is slightly more forward than the Trek. Sitting upright isn't a deal breaker though since I understand that it helps with visibility.
@DaveMatthews @byunbee Looks like Giant offers the FastRoad E+ EX Pro. It has a 375 W battery, which seems small. Is that a concern?
Glad you found what you like, congrats!I test rode the Specialized Turbo Vado yesterday. They were out of stock of the 4.0 but had a 5.0 and I was told it would give a good enough feel for the bike. The motor is very quiet and smooth. The Specialized is a fine bike, but my personal preference was for the Trek.
I called the shops in my area and they didn’t have a Class 3 Haibike or Giant in stock, so I also eliminated those options.
So I purchased the Trek since I liked it and felt I test rode all my viable options during lockdown. Thank you to everyone for your input!
For anyone interested in the Trek: It does not fit into my sedan. I removed the front wheel and seat and it almost makes it in but I can’t close the trunk due to the front fender. So time to look for a hitch+rack...
