Electra Townie Path Go! 10D EQ Review – $3.7k

https://electricbikereview.com/electra/townie-path-go-10d-eq/ The Electra Townie Path Go! 10D EQ is a premium cruiser style ebike that comes feature complete with paint-matched aluminum alloy fenders to keep you dry, sturdy rear rack for transporting gear or a child seat, top-of-the-line integrated Supernova lights (front and rear), key-alike ABUS frame lock for convenient secure stops, and puncture-resistant reflective tires to reduce flats and keep you visible to cars. Bosch SmartphoneHub is extremely versatile and unique. It works on its own as a simple display with assist level, speed, range estimate, and battery percentage but can also charge an Android or iOS phone while using it as a much larger advanced display for ebike settings, music, or GPS with narrated turn-by-turn directions! Vast network of Trek/Electra dealers can provide test rides and post-purchase support, many color choices (including several gender-neutral options), name-brand component including Bosch drive system and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, offered in S/M step-thru and M/L high-step frames. High-volume Schwalbe tires and comfort saddle with elastomer bumpers offer decent comfort, but the all-aluminum frame can still be a little jarring compared to products with suspension. Very high price compared to off-brand competitors, no throttle options, the steel chain cover can get scratched and rust over time, stem not compatible with Bontrager Blendr accessories. I really like the Electra Townie Path Go! 10D and feel that it’s one of the best cruiser ebikes for 2020.

  1. I own a vale and its a great bike. For the overpriced comments, its simply not. Id rather have my bike then a car. The only thing a car has on me is being sheltered from the elements but i live in socal so its not a problem most of the year. But i can buzz around town and get places faster then cars period. Its such a smooth ride and i actually enjoy riding the thing going anywhere. Hills are nothing for it. It simply feels like something is just up to pulling you up the hill. I almost feel bad or that im cheating when i pass people. It has a great range on a charge so i can make day trips far away that i never could on my other bikes. The speed is fine and if you pedal you find you average the top speed anyway. I can charge my battery in a starbucks which doesn’t take long to charge at all. Ive had it since january with no major problems at all. Not even a flat tire. I could go on and on but my point is its a great piece of machinery that not overpriced. Great review too

  2. The issue with the battery most likely won’t be a huge deal to most people due to the fact that we can use both hands to handle the battery. You only have one hand to take the battery off because you were recording with the other.

  3. Hi Court,
    I would be interested in you doing a video on similar bikes in close price range. Letting the viewer know what you can buy in the different price ranges.
    For me it would have to be similar looking,styling and functions. Could be 3 or 4 bicycles.
    You are doing this now but with the same brand.
    This is how I think when looking to buy a bike.

  4. I posted a new video of my custom touring 2018 TREK Dual Sport Plus 3000km review. Hope you all like it

  5. You going to see this comment and you’re not going to like it but all of your e-bikes super overpriced

    Great review! I’ve got this bike after months of research. So far so good but I can’t find the odometer. I love the COBI.Bike features but how do I find how many total miles are on the bike? Not trip distance. I’ve looked everywhere 🤷🏼‍♀️

  7. Front suspension sure would be nice. Bosch is so fine!

  8. Really appreciate the time and attention to detail you gave in your review helps me make an educated decision about purchasing this bike. Thank you for thorough walk thruand the additional resources that you included in your review really enjoyed it.

  9. You are the only one that gives an excellent detailed review, which covers what I need to know. I thank you.

  10. It almost seems as though Trek/Electra had two separate design teams creating the two bikes without consulting with the other.

    I think Vale is “OK” in Spanish and should be pronounced like “Vah-le”, similar to Bali.

  13. Check out this rack!…It’s a nice rack! Why thank you!

  14. That display is way too small to read at a glance. Those fenders do resonate sound. I bet it’s heavy, and that is not ideal if you have to lift it onto a bus rack, etc. For that price, no.

  15. Quick release & quill stem for $4K? C’mon Trek

  16. Thank you for your review. It ultimately led to the my purchase of oxblood townie path go ! I started out with the townie go 8-d and it was very nice BUT the path go feels so premium comparatively. My dealer exchanged with their 30 day policy. And to add to my great deal the bike came scratched in the box and they discounted the price by $600.00 !!!! A little touch up paint and it will be fine. Shoutout to Trey at McDonough Georgia Trek store for awesome customer service.

  17. Cool bike makes me want to go with the fat tire Magnum Ranger with 750w. This Electra is feature rich. I wonder if it had a cx motor what the price will be.

  18. electra’s new ebike line is great but way Overpriced

  19. Damn they’re getting expensive. Those are like our expensive Aussie prices. And the bike is ordinary, very ordinary.

  20. Does it connect only via Bluetooth? Any ideas for people that use their phone for music? Or would we be subject to using the LED screen?

  21. Is it possible to get a "showdown" video comparing competing brands in similar price ranges?

  22. Another great review, but the Schwinn styling leaves me cold, as does the price. Cheers…

    Great video…this bike is awesome. Just a quick question and is probably obvious. Lets say in 5 years the motor goes out and I didn’t want to replace it. Can I just ride the bike like a regular bike if the crank still turns? Thank u in advance.

  24. $4k! Nuts!

    Hi if you see a kid on the third floor balcony that’s me! I just watched it full 3D ,20k, no ads, no buffer time XD I have been waiting for this vid

  26. Impressive performance and operation, but ugly styling and way too much money.

  27. Really like the downtube battery style looks so good not just a battery attached to the frame ebikes have come a long way

  28. Townies are cool, but they seem to think they made them out of gold or something….

    How do you think the Electra Townie Path Go! compares to the Aveny? The Aveny is about $1500 (that’s 2K less) What do you think you lose? It’s so hard to compare apples to apples… Would love to know your thoughts. Thank you!
