Good morning everyone, I just registered but have been reading this forum for several years. I have biked on and off over the years and have an early 1970 Concord 10 speed that I bought brand new and still enjoy. Also been riding a Trek Shift for the past 4 years, been a great bike. I had been considering purchasing an e-bike for the past six months. After extensive research I pulled the trigger last week and bought a Trek Super Commuter 8+. I have only ridden it about 60 miles and it seems to be an absolutely amazing bike. I will acknowledge that its on the pricey side. But I was interested in a brand name with dealer availability that will stand behind the product if needed. Plus I have ridden several Trek products over the years and they have been virtually flawless. I am amazed at the depth of knowledge with the users of this website. I you want to know something bike related, it sure seems to be on this website. Happy and safe cycling to all!!

Welcome! I too joined recently after following the forum for a few years.
Getting a new bike definitely gets one to ride more, not matter how much one loves a trusty old companion.

Enjoy.

Shirtless guys with homemade aero bars on their hybrid scare me, though. I try to keep my distance and avoid eye contact.
