Hi we got my wife a Verve 3+ and she absolutely loves it. We have been Trek owners for years. I road one in my size from the dealer as we were trying out hers. I really like it, but I is a tad pricy. I received an REI ad advertising Co-OP Cycles CTY e3.3 Electric Bike and thought it looked interesting. I don't have the guts to purchase anything I can't try out for fit, but my REI might have one I could try. Looked like component wise they were pretty similar maybe the CTY has a bit bigger amp? But I don't know anything about a Shimano motor and reliability and longevity? Anyone have any thoughts? Much appreciated.
