I am cross shopping these three bikes. I plan to use for recreational rides, and maybe some errands. My kids are older so I do not plan to haul kids. I am heavy so I want a sturdier bike but also want to pedal for exercise. I have some mechanical skills and like to tinker and upgrade. I test rode the Globe and liked it. I have seen the Abound but not ridden it. I have had an older Lectric XP. $2500 is about the top of my budget. I want a throttle and would prefer 28mph if possible. Anyone have direct experience with these bikes? All are in stock right now with July shipping.
