Imagine easy bike commutes with no troublesome hills, no tired legs, and no sweating! Trek makes it a reality with their Lift+ with electric-assist. Trek starts with an aluminum frame and a comfortable upright riding position, and builds it up with quality components from Shimano and Bontrager for precision shifting and braking. The magic-carpet ride is courtesy of the smooth, powerful and quiet built-in Shimano STEPS electric motor that runs off a rechargeable battery. It's a pedal-assist system, so if you pedal lightly, the range is 40 miles, and you can extend that range to 75 miles by pedaling more! It takes just four hours to recharge the down tube-mounted battery so you can ride carefree everywhere!

Took the Lift+ for an 18 mile test ride, through bike trails, roads, hills, flats, traffic and no traffic. Trying to decide between Lift+ and XM700. The Lift+ handles very well, the disc brakes stop the bike quickly and smoothly. Acceleration from a dead stop on a hill is easy in "normal" mode, I found that other than very steep hills I was able to stay in "eco" mode and only used "high" mode to accelerate in traffic from intersections. Pedaling is still required, and you still can get a good workout. This bike would be great for around town, general exercise, commuting and for those that are afraid of too much sweat. After riding for an hour, mostly in "eco" mode and starting with a slightly less than full battery, the range showed I still had enough juice for another 32 miles (I rode 18). Overall, the bike is very nice, well put together, and stable. I wish head and taillights were integrated into the system and that it had shocks, but I highly recommend this bike. Personally, I plan to go for the XM700 as I want the longer distances and higher torque that it will allow. If you want to try an e-bike, stop by your trek store and take a demo ride. You'll be wanting your own within a few minutes.
This is the best electric bike available! Most can't even tell that it has the electric assist, but you can as soon as you get on and pedal.
