I just want to weigh in about the Verve + 3. It is often dismissed here as underpowered or overpriced. And that may be true, but arguably, it is not aimed at an enthusiast market such as a majority of members here. If you look at reviews on the Trek website, you will find that the Verve + 3 has more reviews and an equal rating (4 3/4 stars) to the Allant models. It’s not a perfect e-bike for me, but more suitable than the Allant with its very low step over, and I don’t need any more power than it delivers. I have modified it for more off-road use with Redshift seatpost and stem, removed the chain guard, put a wider range cassette on, and have off-road/winter tires on the way. Approaching 4000 km, it has served me perfectly well.
