Imagine commutes with no troublesome hills, no tired legs and no sweating! Trek makes it a reality with their T80+ bicycle with electric-assist. Trek starts with a light aluminum frame and a comfortable upright riding position, and builds it up with quality components from Shimano, Tektro and Bontrager for precision shifting and braking. But the magic-carpet ride is courtesy of the smooth, powerful and quiet built-in electric motor that runs off a rechargeable battery. It's a pedal-assist system, so if you pedal lightly, the range is 25 miles, and you can extend that range to 45 miles by pedaling more! The removable battery is a sophisticated setup that actually recharges itself on downhills, fits cleanly in the included rear rack and can be recharged from any wall outlet.

I use this bike for recreation and commuting. Due to health problems, I was afraid of being caught away from home while cycling by wind, hills, or medical symptoms flaring up. This bike gave me some freedom back. My last commute was in the heat, against the wind, and uphill. The electric assist made easy work of it all. You can still get whatever level of workout you would like as it is NOT a moped. It also looks much like a normal bike, so no one notices it is an e-bike unless you tell them.
With continual health problems, I hated giving up cycling. This bike gave me my freedom to ride again. I have no fear of hills, winds, or even getting too far away from home when my body wants to give out. The pedal assist [up to 200%] makes easy work of obstacles. You can still get whatever type of workout you would like with the 7 gears, 4 electric assist settings, and even a recharge setting if you really want a massive workout. The bike is comfortable and I have had no problems making the 15-25 mile casual rides.It is a bit of an investment, but taken care of, it looks like it will last for many years to come.
