So I don't want to upset anyone, I am just learning before I buy. But, is there something wrong with Pedego? It has not been mentioned?

They have been around for quite a while. I test drove and rented some of their bikes before I bought my Trek. The people in their store where very helpful. A lot of people really like them and it is convenient that they have a lot of stores. When I was shopping for my ebike I wanted a class 3 bike with 28 mph pedal assist and they had none.

Thank you. I have a Pedego store and a Trek store both within a mile of my place!

I love my Pedego. It’s been a great bike. My pedego store has been great and a test ride was important to me. I rented and then bought. Some shops have their rental fleet available and those bikes don’t cost as much. Knowing what I know now our second bike will probably be from the used rental fleet. Hope this helps!

We did a test drive at Pedego, loved the bikes, just more money than we wanted to spend.

I agree with looking at ebikes with a proven track record even though they may cost more. But, the single most important thing is a decent test ride. I had decided on a Pedego City Commuter based on all the positive reviews I read online. I took one on a decent test ride and discovered it wasn't the bike for me. Nothing wrong with Pedego. I just wasn't comfortable on it. I test rode other brands after that and found one I liked. My local bike shop is located right next to the bike trail. I was a able to go on a 30 minute test ride. It's pretty much impossible to evaluate a bike just riding around a store parking lot.

My complaint is the rear rack battery that just sucks and only one bike with a mid drive plus they are all only class 2 bikes.

You’re probably talking about the City Commuter Mid-Drive. FYI, there are also the Pedego Conveyor which is a Class 1 Brose mid-drive and the Elevate which is a Class 1 eMTB Shimano mid-drive. Both of these have downtube mounted batteries.

You’re right, though, that the most popular Pedegos are Class 2 with battery racks. Personally, I love throttles! I prefer having direct control over how much assist I get at any given moment. I know people generally prefer pedal assist, but most Pedegos have both.

Plus: great customer service, lots of dealer locations

Minus: limited styles of bikes, price, & no class 3 bike availability
