I've been reading pretty much everything on ebikes the past 2 years and this year pulled the trigger on the Trek Powerfly 4 (wife) & 5 (myself). It just happened that our LBS had them both in stock when I brought my wife to shop this January. Long story short, placed a deposit on them and picked them up in April. So far I've put near 700 kms on the 5 and wife around 400kms. The bikes are just freaking awesome and we are both extremely happy with our choice. The bikes are solid, comfortable and CX motor very powerful. Right now, we are riding on 90% time on light gravel trails and bike tires are excellent for this purpose. In the event that we move to a city with more asphalt riding, we'll simply change to slicker tires.
We had LBS to install a rack and kickstand.

Only changes done to the bike were a more comfy seat for the wife and I changed my stem from 90mm to 30mm.

In conclusion, an awesome all purpose bike

I don't see much recent love for the Powerfly on the forum, so just wanted to share my experience!!

Cheers

Congrats on such a great find in these days of hard to find stock! Glad to hear you’re loving them!
I was very interested in the FS4 and FS9 but could never find one anywhere. Chanced upon a Rail 5 and other than a somewhat noisy front rotor, I love the Rail!
We need pics!
