Thank you. I have a Pedego store and a Trek store both within a mile of my place!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.
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.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.
I also considered the Interceptor and even though the Boomerang frame looks a bit odd I liked the extra low step through, and for my wife that was a necessity. I also prefered the design and shape of the Boomerang handlebars over the Interceptor, and the Boomerang's adjustable handlebar stem and angle without tools. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.Best wishes to your wife. I seriously considered the Boomerang, it is the same price as the non Platinum step-through. I just liked the more traditional look of the step-through. I would have also preferred the wire spoke wheels, but at 240 pounds I decided I needed the alloy wheels. I found I could easily step across the frame of the standard step-through while holding onto the handlebars.
NO, there is not a "problem" with crank geometry. Yes the pedals are slightly further back on a Boomerang than they are for example on an Interceptor but that's not necessarily a "problem". It's simply not to your personal liking. That's why it's a good idea to test ride various Pedego models to find one that fits you. In an earlier post in this thread I said how my wife and I both bought Boomerangs. She found that with her prosthetic leg the Interceptor provided a better fit and feel with its pedals slightly more forward. So we traded her Boomerang for an Interceptor. I've riden both her Interceptor and my Boomerang and I don't notice much of a difference.Has anyone noticed a problem with crank geometry? My wife and I both noticed that the pedals seem too far back relative to the seat, making pedaling awkward.
