My new Verve+3 has been a great new bike. I am not coming to bikes a newbie, I've been riding an bike for the past 12 years, this year it was time for a new one, after searching online and test driving an Allant+, I was able to find this Verve+3 in my size. WOW! The tech and battery strength will blow you away, plus 4 choices of power, plenty for what is needed. Have put on my first 100 mi, and it's still only first week of May. Looking forward to a great summer of riding for years to come.
This is the perfect electric bike for the person who still likes to power under their own steam but also likes having the option to get an assist every now and then. The Trek Verve+ 3 is light for an electric bike. Pedaling with the assist off is doable and doesn't feel mushy unlike many other electric bikes out there. I use my bike to ride to the Jersey Shore, a 22-mile round trip starting from my home on the mainland. The power assist comes in handy when crossing the Somers Point - Ocean City Bridge. Most of the bike ride is on bike trails with some low traffic residential streets. I also use the bike to run errands, eliminating a need for a car. I still have a car because I work in NYC. 4-5 times a month. Even though the bike has front and rear lights, I still added additional lighting so I can easily be seen on the road. The bike is pricey...but it's much cheaper and more fun than owning and maintaining a car.
I use this bike for 10-20 mile jaunts. Excellent mechanics, well built, the Bosch system is amazing. Smooth shifts. Have not used it for mountains or tall hills. For someone who gave up 50 years of biking 10 years ago because my body said no more, the fun is back again. Thanks, Trek.
This bike is simply amazing. I have had two other e-bikes and a few road bikes and tri bikes in my past. This trek is by far the best. much better than the townie electra go. It is lighter, has more power, and a longer battery range. I can stay in ECO longer compared to the townie electra, because the bike is so much lighter. I highly recommend this bike! Well worth the investment.
I have spent a lot of money on bikes over the years but this is e-bike is the best money I have ever spent. If you are up in years and weight but enjoy long rides and hate hills and wind this is the way to go. I hesitated and really had a hard time deciding this was the route to go. I live in a really hilly neighborhood and couldn't navigate the hills on my previous Trek, now, I can go whenever and wherever I want to go.
I do enjoy taking the bike to locations around town to change up the scenery but the only negative side to this bike is that it is quite heavy to load/unload in the truck.
We've had Trek hybrid bikes for 6-7 years, and they've been great. Sometimes, however, our urge to go on long adventures had us at the limits of our endurance or strength, and my wife could not usually ride as fast or far as I like to go (and need to, for fitness' sake). First e-bike last year (for her) equals problem solved! With me on the old Verve 3 hybrid, she could whir past me any time she liked. Second e-bike (for me) this year created no new problems: I try to use as little assist as I can manage and get the work-out I want.
I really wish I had a choice of color. I have rented a 2+ in the past, a regular frame medium in a really sweet matte blue. With the 3, it seems like Trek is following Henry Ford's old joke about color choice: "anything you want, as long as it's black." But these days, any color is better than no new bike. And I know, I know, the tires have skinny white-wall-like stripes for safety. Still hate white-walls on the Verve 3+. Both of us use Cat-Eye blinking read rear lights which drivers can see even on sunny days---I feel the rear lights provided on both e-bikes would only be effective on dark days or at night.
But I feel that the the 3+ is no slouch. It has noticeably more power than the 2+, and the bigger battery gives me a lot of range. Even long and steep dirt hills don't stop me on this bike, and I rarely use any assist above Tour. The wide tires at lowered pressure and the suspension seat post really give me all the protection we need from rough surfaces.
When I was younger I used to look forward to bike riding then it became a chore I needed to stay in shape. Now its pure pleasure. Wish it included pneumatic site adjustment so other people can ride it without have to get tools and adjust seat post.
I have had a number of bikes in my life - this is the best.
I have used this product while riding the San Antonio park trails. The hills are not hard with a little assistance. Just make sure you have a full battery if you are going to go on a long ride because trying to ride the bike without could be cumbersome. I would recommend this bike to anyone. Very happy with it.
I own 4 Verve+ 3 ebikes. Two in Wisconsin and two in Florida. We love them but the speed is limited to 20 mph. I tested the Elant 8S which went faster but I didn't like the noise the gears made. I also didn't like not being able to sit more upright. I would also like to be able to make the front and rear lights blink for safety when riding. Back tail light too small. My pedal fell off of my Florida bike after I rode it 40 miles. I was 10 miles away from home. Almost fell off the bike. I called dealer from the trail and he told me, "Oh, yeah, I forgot you had those pedals that there was a service bulletin on. Luckly a different Trek dealer had a bike they robbed the pedals from otherwise I was told due to Covid could be awhile to order parts. While I was getting the bike fixed I had them look at the front tire. Turns out the tire not the rim was wobbling so they swapped a tire also. I have not experienced any of this with the two Verve+3's we purchased in Wisconsin this summer. All of our Verve+ 3's are low step. Last year I rode mine 1300 miles! Not bad for a 67 year old guy with two hip replacements and a knee that needs one.
We purchased a set for Christmas as one of us "needed" a gift to give. We haven't taken them out for a spin yet other than when we purchased. We put a lot of time into researching and trying this brand of bike. Previously owned Trek bikes (non E-bikes) and the brand stands up to the test. Can't wait to enjoy!
Allows me to peddle further and over more hills than I would have had the confidence to do without that motor in reserve. Looks great and the low rise makes mounting and dismount easy and safer for me.
I begged my husband and mother to conspire to get me this bike for Christmas (and birthday and future gift-giving occasions for several years). We have lived in a very hilly area in Northern California for 5 years while my leg-powered Giant collected dust in the garage -- the hills here are just too steep for me to manage any longer. Rode the bike home from the shop, 27 miles, capped with a 1-mile switchback up the ridge to our neighborhood. I've been out on it nearly every day since I got it. LOVE being back on the bike. My sole "complaints" are that I'd like to see the onboard computer be detachable for security, and the teal paint, while beautiful, is very prone to chipping along the edge of the battery pack. Fixed with a bottle of nail polish.
I am thoroughly enjoying this bike. Because of Covid it was a long wait but well worth it. I have already logged nearly 200 miles in the few weeks I have had it and I have a smile on my face as I cover miles and miles of beautiful back roads here in NH.
I live in an area with lots of beautiful rolling and often long steep hills. This bike has enabled me to enjoy bike riding like never before. Pure joy.
This bike is high quality, comfortable and the peddle assist is smooth. I like that the battery can be easily removed so that I can charge inside my house rather than tethered to the bike. This is a big benefit in the winter when I store my bike while I'm not riding.
I've ridden the bike up long steep hills on a windy day without difficulty. I've ridden on bike trails and in the city. Effortless and fun.
I ride three times a day pulling a bike trailer with my 2 and 5yr old. This bike allows me to turn the "mountains" around our house into "hills". Commuting around town has become a breeze. I love this bike. It's heavier than my hybrid but it's a lot easier to get around in while pulling the trailer!
Biking alone or with casual groups, typically 20-25 mile outings. I don't have to worry about not being able to keep up or over-exerting myself, yet I still get good exercise and have a great time. Plenty of extra battery capacity.
I have always loved riding my bike but, over the years it has gotten harder to do hills etc. My husband was looking into an e-bike and I went with him. Bottom line is we both ended up with Trek e-bikes. Mine is a Verve plus 3 and his is an Electra. We looked at other brand's but we're already Trek owners, we are loving the freedom to enjoy longer rides. I try to ride mostly on my own power but when going up a hill or into the wind it's great! You still get great exercise but can extend your rides. I highly recommend trying an electric bike. We do both trail and street rides. One thing to be aware of is the bike is much heavier... love it!
I like this ebike which is in the mid price range at ~$3000. The four levels of assist is enough and the shifting is very responsive. I like the fact that the fenders and lights are integrated from day one. It is fairly heavy at 54 pounds but even so, much of the time I find that I do not need the assist feature. It has changed that way I ride as I no longer avoid routes that I previously avoided due to major hills. I am in reasonable shape but it has allowed me to take on longer rides that I might have avoided. It may sound counter intuitive, but I think you can actually get a better workout because of the assist feature. It has made my "bicycling world" larger and that is a major plus!
At 63, my "avid" biking days are behind me (hey, don't judge), but I still enjoy cycling at a moderate pace. I was looking for something to ride for my commute to work (8 miles each way on rural, paved roads). Almost everything about this bike, initially, turned me off (as a former roadie): the low step ("girl's bike," I thought), upright position, wide seat, fenders, flat pedals, and -- for cripes sake! -- a kick stand. Once I put my ego and my prejudices aside, though, I realized this was just the ticket. For commuting without sweating the Verve+3 is perfect. The low step means I'm not ripping my pants trying to get on the bike. And the upright position is pretty much irrelevant when you're assisted by a motor (who cares about head winds?). I bought a pannier which lets me take my laptop and paperwork. I looked at the faster version with a 28 mph motor assist, but realized that was more bike than I really needed. The 9 speed rear derailleur handles all the speeds and hills I encounter. And the motor kicks in so efficiently, gradually, and quietly that it's virtually unnoticeable. One interesting thing I discovered is that speed and effort are now more-or-less uncoupled. I can put the bike in a lower assist (like Eco) and noodle to work without much effort. But I can also put it into Turbo and zip to work - also effortlessly. In the same way, I can make the ride more of a moderate workout, regardless of assist level. So here's where I've arrived after a month. I really enjoy the daily commutes and have come to care less about wind and hills. I arrive at work fresh, not ripe, and use it even at work for running errands around my small town. For fitness, its become a great way to get in base miles at light to moderate intensity. I still have my road bike which I take out mostly on weekends to get in a hard workout or go on rides with friends. I hope you'll like yours as much as I've enjoyed mine.
We were forced to postpone our 50th ANNIVERSARY trip to Alaska due to Covid 19. Wanting very much to do something special to celebrate we decided to buy new bikes. We had on our "bucket list" to bike the 40 mile Kancamagus Highway through the mountains of New Hampshire. I'm not sure at 73 and 78 we would have been able to complete the over 2000' elevation gain to enable us to cross this off our bucket list but with our new Verve 3 bikes it was a piece of cake. We didn't even use half of our batteries. We love our bikes and look forward to many more challenging rides.
Getting over the sticker shock was the toughest part of this purchase. Having put on a few hundred miles in less that 10 day I'm happy to say that this bike offers an unparalleled experience for someone needing a bit of assistance on the uphill parts of the ride.
This bike gives me that little push I need to ride every day. It's so much fun to ride and the different power levels - from eco to turbo, let me decide just how much help I need. I've been riding every day in Central Park and I feel great!
I love to ride even more so now, with my new Verve 3 e-bike, I upgraded from the regular bicycle Verve and at my age, my thighs are starting to tire easily, had to pedal harder and was loosing my desire to take long rides, but with this e-bike when I need just a little help to pedal, just push the button to eco mode, n wow I can just ride for hours get lost on the trails, its so wonderful.
