I’ve always found it funny that a market for a $3500 city/urban bike exists. I’ve always thought of a city bike as something you’d ride in an urban area and lock up outside while running errands.

Yeah, it seems like that people who actually use ebikes in their daily lives ride Rad Power Bikes.

I always thought a dozen eggs would be affordable too.

It’s not everywhere but it’s growing all the time. More and more people have secure bike parking at both ends of their trips and using a bike like this makes longer bike commute distances more sensible. There is also a large number of these being used simply for recreation. As Hamjam points out below, lower cost e-bikes like Rad Power are increasing in numbers very fast. They’re everywhere in medium size cities and suburbs.

I’ll blow your mind. People in my area routinely leave $10k carbon bikes unattended and unlocked while visiting breweries and cafes! They hope to keep an eye on them, but they don’t. Surprisingly few bikes are stolen. Not a more typical urban area, but still, 250k people! Yes, I lock mine, but I don’t worry about theft. I bring mine inside when at work and shops that won’t let me use my bike as a grocery cart don’t get my business. I think this last is how most urban commuters use more expensive commuter bikes.

Still using Bosch prion controller! That’s ancient and cheap. Why not kiox in color.

This I’d a giant leap in yhr tight direction. Thr big three need to be putting real cycling knowledge in to their e-bikes. Comfy geometry and not a lot of silly gimmicks like off road suspensions.

Not real crazy about that buzzy. Square downtube, but more elegant round tubes elsewhere make for a light and responsive ride. Still, I should not be able to take their $1k traditional version, add a torque sensing mid-drive and out perform it in every metric, for $1k less. I am not special. My profit on that is outrageous. You have to go outside developed countries to find a smaller shop. I’m buying one at a time. Trek needs to do better.
