Comparing a Stromer 500 watt (ST2-S) to a Trek
TQ 250 watt mid ??
Anybody experience both?

I just tested a Trek TQ mtn bike…TQ, weighs 20 pounds less so expected decent performance.
I thought the acceleration and performance were well below my expectations…
The TQ was quiet and smooth, but whimpy power

I was most interested in TQ motor as their 2023 Trek Domane + E bike weighs just 26 pounds and
uses the 250 watt motor. It is teeny tiny motor!

Would Trek Domane be able to cruise at 28 mph like the Stromers????
