I ride the bike to work at least 3-4 times a week with round trip of 25 miles. I had to change the original tires to puncture resistant slick tire to make it faster and better for road use. My big complaint was the original tires punctured after the 3 rides. This bike makes riding to work a lot more fun by minimizing the impact of winds and hills. Unlike the other Trek electric bike, this one has quick release wheels so make it easier to fix flats.
It is very easy to exceed 20 mph with pedaling on Medium settings. The bike limits the top speed to 20 mph electric assist. I thought about getting a higher electric speed bike (28 mph) but the speed is enough for my need.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
