I wanted to give everyone a heads up regarding the new Specialized Turbo Como 3.0. I worked so hard to find a new bike that fit my body and met my mechanical needs from my Townie ebike. After test driving as many options as possible in Victoria and with the great amount of help from this website and the guys at Caps in Port Moody I was happy to purchase this bike. Everyone was very helpful and supportive.
Myself and my husband have always had Specialized bikes and this is the brand that fits my body, after being customized. I was confident I could do the same with the eBike and was so excited to purchase this expensive, new bike. I soon realized after visiting a few bikes shops that Specialized has totally limited the adjustments to this bike. You can’t adjust the handle bars at all, it’s totally locked down and cannot be adjusted. WHY would they do this? I am beyond frustrated with this ebike, I just need to raise the handle bars up another inch to ride it without pain. I am at the point I am going to cut pieces of pool noodles to put on my handles.
I just wanted to add this comment to anyone’s interest in this model of Specialized so you don’t make the same huge mistake I make.
PS, one more point. Specialized should realize their demographic is older riders, why make the computer screen so hard to read. I can't see anything in the sun and the read outs are way too small. LOVE my Bosch system on my Townie much more.
