Just throwing that out there because I own one and I’ve seen some folks comparing them. Seems like I’ve been seeing more reliability issues with Specialized ebikes here on this forum. BTW, I wasn’t impressed with the Verve+3 I looked at either. The Allant+7 is a much better bike IMHO.Seems like it functionally competes with the Vado 4.0 (less like the Como) but with but is a tad more expensive. Why do you like it more?
One major plus for Specialized for me has been the extensive dealer network. There's a crazy number of LBS's around here that sell them, and the Specialized site has been super helpful with giving real-time accurate inventory of which shops have which bikes physically in-stock. That's been invaluable for test riding without needing to try and get someone on the phone for every possible shop in the region. Trek doesn't seem to do that at all. The two shops I contacted only had one in-stock testable e-bike and it was a Verve that wasn't that interesting to me.
