Regardless, I have every intention of making 2017 the year I get a second eBike. More to follow…
I can totally relate to what you're saying. I just bought a Trekking Sduro SRX (i.e. 45 km/h variant), but am already thinking about my next bike. I've always considered the Trekking Sduro as a temporary solution because I needed a means of transportation 'immediately' and it was moderately priced. After 2 weeks of ownership I've already put some 900 kilometres on the bike, and I think I'll probably get about 150 days of commuting per year. It's definitely a good bike, but it's not the bike of my dreams. I wanted to get a DD hub drive that's powerful & responsive. Initially I had my eye on the Turbo, but it won't be sold with a DD drive in the future. So I'm already looking around for alternatives.
I've enjoyed reading your posts, so by all means keep sharing. I'd be interested in hearing about that Levo Comp Fat if you end up buying it. I'd be curious to see how you adapt an all-terrain bike so that it meets certain commuter requirements (lights, bags, fenders, etc.). I was tempted by the R&M offerings too and I can see several advantages to them: the possibility of having two batteries (1000Wh capacity), the fact that the bikes can handle mud and snow, and are also well adapted to commuting.
