    5000$ ebicycle with no kind of suspension!?

  2. Love my Trek Supercommuter. Just a querie…where is this vid taken? would love to try a route like that…thanks a lot for your vid’s … they are great 🙂

  3. I would have been very interested at $2,500. $5k is insane.

  4. bone-trogger

  5. Anybody from the UK watching and biting their lip with their painfully slow 15.5mph limit?

  6. can we get to see more of Stephnie pleeze

  7. I just brought this bike today and I love it, so much fun and fast

  9. Love the channel:)

  10. I just got the summer 2020 Bosch software upgrade installed on my 2019 Trek Super Commuter+ 8s- much smoother feel in all gears when pedaling and shifting.

  11. Bon-trA-ger

  12. The 2020 Vado is way nicer

  13. Great review as usual. I like this bike it’s on my list

  14. When pedaling at your hardest you can average the speed of a Tour De France competitor 25-28 mph, can you imagine doing this consistently on a bicycle!??!🥵

  15. Need some color correction

  16. Can I remove the light / computer and put it in my bag at the destination? I work in London and know that these would be pinched in a heartbeat /if left on

  17. great review. thanks

  18. a great review, thanks so much. I am shopping and have been a Trek Madone rider a few years back but age has changed my needs. This bike really looks good despite the pricyness.

  19. I just dont get it.

  20. I hope they sell none. $5000 for that bike is completely ridiculous.

  21. ​@UCzjLFKDSsepM4q9yAMUG1qw Can some 1 tell me will this work using a Schumacher 1000 watt inverter with a 860 cold cranking amps and up to keep the e bike portable charged ?? what about using a Schumacher battery charger portable power station or a ever start jump starter 1200A will it still keep the e bike charged at the same time while riding at the same time ???  And you can get all of these parts from Wal Mart or AutoZone or Harbor Freight Tools ??

  22. Race those guys

  23. I picked one up last weekend and I love it!!!

  24. Those mid drive don’t get good range

  25. Your reviews on bicycles always great.

  26. Doesn’t compare to a stromer IMHO if and when the Bosch breaks down it’s gonna cost you. Direct drive hub motors don’t break down and are much less maintenance for a commuter. Only way a mid drive is better is if you have hills to climb and I’m in Florida. Also the stromer 1x is 48v, much better than 36v for the same price.

  27. They make an upgrade rear rack to put put a case or rack

  28. Pannier= pan-ee-eh… It’s a French word 🙂

  29. Really like the design of this bike better than the Turbo Vado. Don’t need front suspension. One big issue for me though is being 6-4” tall I would prefer 29er/700c wheels over 27.5. I am very concerned this bike will just feel too small for me. I’m guessing Trek was concerned about how heavy that would make the bike. Too bad, most mtb bikes make 29 size wheels for their XL frames.

  30. Overpriced garbage.

  31. My bro said sensitive knee hahaha

  32. $4800 for this bike is TOO much $$$. No rack, not even a seat post suspension. There are many less expensive options out there. (2) of these one for my wife and one for me = 10k…I cant make sense of these numbers.

  33. hey i need some help if anyone is reading this im looking for an e bike just to go like 8 miles to a place and back and i want a faster bike but im on a budget of like below 450 and would like to see a bike like it. any help?

  34. Nice, the riding feels like you are in a train speeding up XD

  35. I love nerdy videos like this and most of all I love people like you. 🙂 Keep it up.

  36. i have the specialized vado 3.0 in a steep hill i only had 8 miles then i tried a vado 5.0 the same hill it didn’t go faster than my vado 3.0 why ????

    Am I the only one that thinks the battery in eco mode sounds like a screaming 12 year old boy?

  38. Too expensive!

  39. Loving those adjustable spokes. all bikes should have them dude 🤔😂

    The name of the city?

  41. This is a very cool bike but unfortunately it’s more than slightly out of my price range capability. After much research and a great test ride I purchased a radmission 1 and just currently waiting for it to be put together at the shop for me as I’m not comfortable doing that myself. I’m so excited to finally get to be part of the whole ebike experience!..I’m 54 now and my knees aren’t what they used to be and now I can go for nice long rides like I used to😊

  42. These types of bikes are considered "powered vehicles" and not allowed on any of our local bicycle & multi-use paths

  43. Was this video from Fort Collins/Northern Colorado? Looks so familiar but I can’t place the exact location.

  44. I picked one up today. The price is certainly something I wrestled with since bikes half the price were similar in performance, minus the top speed, which came with quite the premium. The 20 mph version of this bike was $1500 less. The Verve (20 mph) was $2800 and also a nice commuter. A more sensible person would have gone with a cheaper bike. But it was my favorite bike of the models I demoed so #### it.

    That being said my initial impression of the bike is I love it. It feels like a well balanced bike. Power off did not result in a draggy feel. Despite being completely out of shape I managed 12 mph up hills with moderate exertion that I would otherwise be walking my bike up, and 27-28 mph on flat ground.

    I found the bike much quieter than this video seemed to indicate. It is louder with higher revolutions but still quieter than some others I tried. Going to a higher gear results in lower noise and easier pedaling. On a conventional bike I like a higher RPM but on this bike lower revs worked out better. The drive train provided smooth power even with shifting. I had expected some degree of wonkiness with the drive system but it turned out to be free of any such undesirable tendencies.

    I took it out for a night trial as well and am delighted with the performance of the lights. The headlight puts out a widely fanned beam and the bright taillight makes the bike easily visible to cars.

  45. That track bike looks cool 😎

  46. What’s the new version of this. If there is one

  47. At 5k it should be a full on electric bike that goes 50mph. This bike is stupid!

  48. I was going to buy one but my trek store said the new model are coming out next year , so we cops not order one , this made me very sad 😢

    Master of Ebike !👍😄

    Hello !!. I’ve heard that they’re going to get a new model, do you know anything about it? I think it’s going to be called "allant". great video. Greetings from the Basque country.
