How tall are you?

To measure your height, stand straight up, barefoot, with your back, heels, shoulders and head all touching a wall. While looking straight ahead, place a book or straight edge on your head and slowly push it against the wall. Your straight edge should be parallel with the floor. Mark the spot where the bottom of the book is touching the wall. The distance from the marked spot to the floor is your height.

What is your inseam?

How to measure: Stand barefoot with your back straight and against a wall. Tuck a ruler or something that extends to the floor between your legs. Using both hands, and keeping it level, pull the ruler up into your crotch as if you were sitting on the saddle. Measure the distance from the top edge of the ruler to the ground to find your inseam measurement. Your inseam is very important to your final bike size so please measure carefully.

Trek Verve Disc Series Review

Trek’s Verve range of hybrid bikes has received excellent reviews since its release. The majority of users say they offer excellent value for money, providing high-quality parts and materials at a low cost. For work commuters, weekend riders, or those looking to do short tours with light loads, you’ll struggle to find better-priced bikes of the same quality.

Who Is The Trek Verve For?

Trek’s new range of Verve hybrid bikes is aimed at urban commuters and recreational riders looking to do short trips around town. They have comfortable seating positions, straight handlebars, and frame mounts for fitting pannier racks and fenders. All bikes in the Verve range come in both standard and “low-step” models for cyclists who require easier mounting.

The Verve 3’s benefits from the smooth and efficient gearing provided by Shimano’s Acera components. Both the front and back derailleurs are Acera as well as the shifters. Trek has downgraded the front crank to a 2-speed ring but put a 9-speed Shimano HG200 cassette on the rear, with 11-36 cogs. This gives the rider 18 gears overall with the added range provided by the extra-large 36t rear cog.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Trek has also decided to go with Shimano in the braking department this time around. Shimano’s MT200 hydraulic disc brakes are a firm favorite amongst hybrid and MTB riders alike. They provide great grip, instant reaction time, and no slippage even in wet weather.

Bontrager Hardcase Wheels

Verve 3 Disc Lowstep bluelight

Bontrager’s Hardcase Ultimate tires are the real deal when it comes to tackling hazardous city streets. These things will carve through rubble or broken rocks without trouble and should even keep you safe against glass shards or small nails. The 700c x 45 wire-beaded tires also have reflective sidewalls for safer night riding.

Alpha Gold Aluminum Frame

The Alpha Gold aluminum frame is compatible with Trek’s DuoTrap S sensor system for tracking your progress. It also has a front and rear rack and fender mounts if you wish to convert the Verve 3 into a decent touring bicycle. With the strong frame and alloy fork, the Verve 3 can carry up to 300 lbs (136 kg) of overall weight (rider and luggage).

DuoTrap S Compatible

DuoTrap S is Trek’s unique frame-integrated wireless computer system that tracks your statistics while you cycle. It can be installed neatly into the frame on the inside of the rear wheel for a clean and aerodynamic finish. The DuoTrap S device (sold separately) tracks your cycling statistics and sends the information wirelessly to a Bluetooth or ANT+ enabled cycling computer or smartphone.

Suspension Seatpost

While Verve 2 doesn’t have any suspension on the front or rear wheels it does get a nice touch with seat post suspension. The alloy adjustable seat post has a small added spring that gives up to 27.2mm of travel that will absorb any sudden bumps that creep up on you.

Aluminum Frame and Alloy Fork

The Verve 2 has the same Trek Alpha Gold aluminum frame as the Verve 1 with a lighter 415mm alloy fork. The comfortable frame geometry puts the rider in an upright position, with a 71.5-degree head angle and an average 70-degree seat tube angle.

Bontrager Wheels

The wheels on the Verve 2 are Bontrager Connection with size 700x45c Bontrager H5 wire-bead tires. The thick-treaded, reflective and puncture-protected tires are strong and resilient in all types of weather, ensuring you stay safe and visible even in low-light conditions. 

Trek Verve 3 Disc

What Can Be Better?

It’s hard to find any cons about those bikes, and we really couldn’t find anything major. If you are willing to sacrifice the speed and ease of riding, you might want to swap the rigid fork to a front suspension with at least 50mm travel.

Another not-so-good fact about these bikes is that they look really nice and glossy, which means you have to take good care of it by not getting the frame scratched. We also recommend investing in a solid bicycle lock too as this bike simply won’t get unnoticed!

3 thoughts on “ trek verve disc series review ”.

It is almost impossible to fit a front rack on the verve 3. There’s only a mid fork eyelet, and the fork is too wide for the little options there are for mid-fork mounting front racks.

A friend bought a Verve 1in black. It is labeled as a “1” yet it has much up-graded components. It’s more like a “3”. It was purchased and put to together by Trek employees. Is this possible?

Hi, could you recommend a specific brand of a front suspension fork that I could buy to replace the rigid front fork for the Trek Verve 3 disc lowstep with a medium frame?

Trek Verve 1 Review: Is It A Good Bike To Have?

  • By Daniel Shakibaie
  • Hybrid Bike , Trek Bikes

trek verve 1

Welcome to my Trek Verve 1 Review of 2020.

I tested nearly two dozen hybrid bikes over the years. The Trek Verve 1 is my go-to for any looking for an entry-level/Beginner hybrid bike.

Trust me, you do not want to buy the wrong product. It’s better to get it right the first time, or you’ll waste over $500 like I did when I start riding bikes.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Hybrid Bike

If you’re considering buying a hybrid bike, there are many important features to remember throughout the buying process. Here are some of the top ones to bear in mind.

Gears

Not every cyclist will need the same number of gears on their hybrid bike. When deciding on the number that’s right for you, consider your fitness levels and the terrain you’ll be riding on. For example, if you’ll regularly choose a route with lots of hills and rocky surfaces, you’ll want to opt for more gears. This is especially true with hills as you’ll need an extensive range of gears to help you climb and descend safely and easily.

On the other hand, if you’ll primarily be riding on flat terrain, you won’t require as many gears as those planning on climbing uphill . In fact, the fewer gears you have, the lighter your bike will be since it won’t have as many components. Bikes with only one speed can be perfect for some, especially as the rear hub enables you to coast like on a standard bike.

Suspension System

Next, consider what type of suspension system you’ll need. Commonly, many hybrid bikes don’t have a suspension. In fact, suspension forks add weight and can make pedaling more difficult. Plus, if most of your routes are on smooth pavements, you won’t benefit from this feature.

Alternatively, a front suspension helps to absorb impacts on the front wheel, making the overall ride smoother and more comfortable for the cyclist. This feature is certainly appropriate if you’ll be riding on off-road conditions and require the additional support.

Frame Materials

Frame Materials

The frame’s material has a huge impact on performance and durability. There are several to choose from, but the top three are aluminum, steel, and carbon fiber. 

Aluminum is affordable, strong, stiff, and lightweight. With newer developments, this material can improve shock absorption to make riding on tough terrain smoother and avoid cyclists from feeling the impact.

Alternatively, steel is beneficial for its strength and durability, although it is heavier than aluminum. Steel is less expensive to make and purchase, which is ideal for those on a budget. Plus, this material can handle a larger maximum weight, making it great for commuters adding a basket and belongings to their bicycle.

Finally, carbon fiber is another preferred frame material. It’s lighter than aluminum and much stronger than steel, although, these beneficial factors can make it more expensive. Although, you can purchase a hybrid bike that features only carbon fiber forks or seat posts, rather than the entire frame is made of this.

Brake Type

Finally, it’s time to decide if you’ll choose rim brakes or disc brakes. Rim brakes are the most common on hybrid bikes and feature pads that grip onto the wheel rims. This brake system is more economical, and it’s easier to replace worn pads, leading to less maintenance.

However, this brake system can wear out the wheel rim over time, meaning you have to replace the wheel if you don’t monitor its progress. Compared to rim disc brakes, this brake system is less effective in wet and muddy conditions. It also requires more effort to apply your fingers on the levers if you want to brake aggressively.

Alternatively, hydraulic disc brakes provide stronger braking and less finger effort. This makes it more user-friendly and beneficial for riding in tough environmental conditions. Or mechanical disc brakes require manual adjustments as the pads can wear. If you don’t keep an eye on mechanical disc brakes, they can become worn quickly, leading to other areas of damage on your bike.

Features and Benefits of the Trek Verve 1

In order to conduct this Trek Verve 1 review, we needed to thoroughly research and analyze the Trek Verve 1 spec. Below, you’ll find the top features to pay careful consideration to when deciding if this particular model is the right choice for you. 

Trek Verve 1

Trek hybrid bikes can be trusted, but we’re particularly impressed with the Verve 1’s features, in particular, its high-quality frame. It’s designed with a lightweight aluminum frame, which has many incredible benefits to it.

First, this aluminum frame is stiff, enabling an even weight transfer of human power to forward motion. As a result, this makes the Trek Verve 1 bike ideal for sprints. Although it’s light, this certainly doesn’t mean it can’t handle well. In fact, the Verve 1 uses its frame to absorb any road vibrations, creating a smoother journey for the rider.

The Verve 1 features a front suspension fork that contains a spring and a damper to enhance the rider’s experience.

The bottom part of the fork is held onto the wheel and fits over the tubes connected to the frame. Inside of each tube is a shock absorber. As the fork moves up, which happens when the bike hits a bump, the spring becomes compressed and the piston forces fluid through.

This front suspension system can dampen traveling over a slight bump in the road, but it can’t comfortably handle traveling over tree stumps or riding up and down pavements with intent.

This bike features 700x40c tires and has what could be commented as a medium tread count. In essence, the Verve 1’s tires aren’t designed for intense weather and environmental conditions.

These tires have less rolling resistance on smoother surfaces, which makes the bike agile and nimble. As a result, you can travel faster and farther on smoother surfaces, than a bike with thicker and larger wheels. 

The Verve 1 can comfortably handle terrain, although you’ll likely encounter some difficulties when cycling over mud and tough terrain. In fact, it’ll slow down immensely and you’ll lose control and stability when cycling in these conditions. 

The Verve 1 comes with 21 speeds, which allows you to shift through gears as you please. Plus, with a variety to choose from, the Verve 1 has a wide range for climbing steep hills or leisurely cruising on smooth pavements. This hybrid bike can navigate throughout all types of terrain at a comfortable gear speed, and adjusting is easy and user-friendly. 

Having multiple speeds on a bike isn’t a necessity for all riders as it depends on your riding preferences and the conditions you’re exposed to. A 21-speed bike features three gears on the front and seven in the rear. Its positioning can actually increase the wear on your bike and the risk of your chain jumping off the gears as you ride. So, if this isn’t necessarily a feature you need or will make the most of, the gear risks and maintenance might be too much for some.

The Verve 1 uses a derailleur to switch between different gears. This system is controlled by shifters that are positioned on the handlebars. In a nutshell, you need to continue pedaling to shift gears, which is great for enabling you to keep at your top speed and not have to slow down to adjust your gears.

Finally, the bike comes with Tektro alloy linear-pull brakes, which are highly beneficial for the rider. When purchasing a hybrid bike, its components and materials must be from brands you can trust. Fortunately, the Verve 1 uses brakes designed by a company that’s been established for over 100 years.

There are many features and advantages of linear-pull brakes. First, they’re inexpensive to make, enabling the Verve 1 to be reasonably-priced. They’re also easy to maintain and replace, even if you’re on the go. Most importantly, they don’t add any strain to the bike’s hubs, spokes, or frame. 

However, you should consider that these brakes can be easily affected by water and mud, so you can’t expose the Verve 1 to all weather conditions. Plus, depending on how often you ride the bike, you may need to replace the brake shoes regularly.

Customer Review

We’ve searched the Internet to see what past customers and owners had to say about the Trek Verve 1 . Fortunately, we were happy to discover that most of the reviews were positive and reflected some of the benefits of owning this bicycle.

Alternatives

Are you looking for more reasons to purchase the Verve 1? Or perhaps you’d like some information on how it compares to similar models.

Trek Verve 1 vs Verve 2

When comparing both models of Trek’s Verve bikes, we took into consideration the speed factor. The Verve 1 lets you maintain a leisurely pace without having to put too much effort into pedaling and handling. 

Alternatively, the Verve 1 has a wider range of gears, and the 8-speed component enables you to easily conquer steep inclines and helps you to reach your destination quicker—a factor that might be important for those lengthy commutes.

Also, the adjustment stem on the Verve 2 means you can raise and lower the handlebars for easier steering. This feature also makes the bike ideal for a growing person or switching between multiple riders of different heights.

On the other hand, the Verve 1 doesn’t allow you to easily adjust the handlebars, as it comes fitted with a quill. 

Trek Verve 1 vs FX1

Next, we looked at comparing the Verve 1 with the FX1. The FX1 is a fitness hybrid bike that is lighter and has narrower tires, enabling you to reach your top speeds with less effort. Plus, the saddle design allows you to reach a more aggressive riding position; an important factor for riding quickly and with intent.

The Verve 1 offers riders stability, comfort, and better traction than the FX1. The Verve 1 can also handle gravel trail rides and features wider tires to absorb bumps easily. Check our detailed review of Trek FX1 here

Trek Verve 1 vs Verve 3

Finally, the Verve 3 features a 9-speed drivetrain that comes in handy for daily commutes. Plus, the Verve 3 provides you with the option of mounting tubeless tires on the bicycle to reduce its overall weight. These tubeless tires come with sealant liquid, which makes them less susceptible to dry punctures.

Compared to the Verve 1, this feature is a top highlight for those searching for a hybrid bike and makes it more durable when riding over bumps and rocks.

The Trek Verve 1 is a hybrid bike that has everything you need for fitness and commuting. Hybrid bikes are highly beneficial for those who aren’t looking to travel at their fastest, but need a model that can withstand tough terrain and far distances.

We recommend the Verve 1 for many reasons. Firstly, its lightweight aluminum frame makes it durable and long-lasting. Secondly, the bike’s wheels can handle intense weather and environmental conditions, enabling you to ride your bike whenever you please, and with no issues of longevity or performance. Finally, the Trek Verve 1 size measurements make it ideal for adults of all heights.

Trek alpha sizing for MTB – what is it?

The old-school approach of measuring the frame size of Trek bikes is a thing of the past. With newer inventions and modern bike geometry, alpha sizing is used in place of numeric sizing on Trek mountain bikes.

Why is alpha sizing important?

1. Easier approach

Instead of using size numbers like 19.5, the sizes can be classified into S, M, ML, L, XL, and XXL. So, someone with a 17.5 size can go for the medium and a 19.5 is a large size. You don’t have to keep a tab on numbers; instead, the alphabet makes it easier.

2. Measurement based on reach

In earlier times the frame size measurement of Trek bikes was solely based on seat tube length. Things have changed, and modern mountain bike geometry focuses more on reach as of now. Hence, alpha sizing measures what matters and is a more simplified way of measuring bike size.

Trek sizing – virtual vs actual

This can puzzle you a bit as they both are somewhat similar yet there is a subtle difference. Actual size can be termed as the overall length of the seat tube from the center of the bottom bracket to the center of the top tube intersection with the centerline of the seat tube.

On the other hand, virtual sizing is the overall length of the seat tube ranging from the center of the bottom bracket to the mid-point of the imaginary horizontal top tube in which it connects with the seat tube.

If I had to give you an example, a bike might have a virtual size of 18.5 and an actual size of 17.5. This means that the bike size feels like 18.5, but in actual sense, the frame size is 17.5. It doesn’t make much of a difference as it is there only to let you know what it is (actual size) and what it looks like in size (virtual size).

People also ask

Trek 17.5 frame size – what does it mean.

A 17.5 frame size is considered an M size (Medium) in terms of alpha sizing. Any individual who is 161-172 cm or a height of 5’3.4”-5’7.7” . If you are within this height range, going for a medium size shall be the right choice.

Trek medium frame size is for what height?

A medium size frame size (17.5) is ideal for a person with a height between 5’3.4”-5’7.7 ”. In centimeters, it is ideal for those around 161 to 172 cm in height.

Trek 24-inch bike is for what age?

When it comes to children, their bikes are measured in terms of wheel size instead of the standard frame size. These kid’s bikes have a size range between 12-26 inches, depending upon the height of the kid.

As far as a 24-inch wheel size is concerned, any kid between the ages of 8-11 can go for a fun ride with it. Some of the popular 24-inch bike models are Trek Roscoe 25, Wahoo 24, Trek Precaliber 24 , etc.

Trek 26-inch bike is for what height?

A 26-inch wheel-size bike is for kids with a height of 4’9”-5’3” (146-160 cm) . Wahoo 26 is a prime example of a bike in this category.

Trek 20-inch bike is for what age?

Trek 20-inch bikes are for children between 5 to 8 years of age. Additionally, if they are within the height of 3’9”-4’6” , it should be suitable for them.

Are Trek bikes good?

Trek bikes are considered to be extremely good and solid in build. It is known to be the number 1 performance bike brand all over the globe. Having its humble beginning in the year 1976 in Waterloo, Wisconsin, it has turned into the largest bicycle manufacturer all over the world. With an array of bikes ranging from, mountain, road, electric, and kids bikes, there is a lot to choose from a mammoth list.

How much is a used Trek bike worth?

It depends on a lot of factors in terms of how old the bike is, the year of production, which model, and a lot more. However, it can be within $1000-10,000 (depending on the model and other factors) .

Where are Trek bikes made?

The majority of their bikes are manufactured in Taiwan, China, Netherlands, and Germany too.

Why are Trek bikes so expensive?

Usually, the bike brand prefers top-tier components, suspensions, and frames that are ahead of its competitors. This results in additional costs that can be seen in the price tag and also many top-end Trek bikes are custom-made with less production, leading to being more expensive.

Trek bikes are a class apart in many ways with a range of bikes on offer for its fans across the world. Choosing the right size for you can be tricky, but this is where the Trek frame size chart comes to the rescue.

Trek as a bicycle brand might be on the costly side, but they punch above its weight to provide top-class bikes for the masses. I am always someone who roots for quality, and Trek provides what I need.

One comment

Thanks for your informative post. I really like the Trek alpha sizing for MTB because Trek frame sizes use alpha sizing rather than the usual inches or centimeters (cm), and they usually have a certain range of measurements.

Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT review – a great ebike for first-time riders

Approachable, easy-riding and plenty peppy.

A red Trek Verve+ Lowstep LT bike against a dark asphalt background.

Tom's Guide Verdict

The Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT is an approachable, easy-riding and comfortable ebike that's great for beginners and anyone with apprehensions about motor-assisted cycling. Its 250W motor isn't the most powerful but it's plenty peppy enough for cruising around at speeds up to 20 mph with little effort. Pricier than other entry-level options, the Verve+ 1 Lowstep includes a two-year warranty on the battery and a lifetime warranty on the bike.

Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT: Verdict

Weight: 44 pounds Max rider weight: 300lb Tires: 27.5 x 2.0 Drivetrain: Eight-speed, chain Motor: 250W rear hub motor, 40Nm torque Battery:  48V, nonremovable, (250 Wh) Max advertised range: 35 miles Assist levels: Three

The Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT is the brand's entry-level, upright-style electric bike for beginners, commuters and joy riders. Featuring a step-through frame, a large comfortable seat, grippy handlebars and a riding position that makes it easy to keep an eye on traffic, the Verve+ 1 LT is one of the best beginner-friendly ebikes available.

It's a bit pricier than the competition, but Trek makes up for it with high-quality components, including hydraulic disc brakes, integrated lights and fenders, oversized tires and a reasonably lightweight (44 pounds) design, with an all-aluminum frame construction. 

Powered by a modest yet capable enough 250W motor integrated into the rear wheel hub, users can select from three e-assist levels and eight gear speeds. At $2,300, it may not be a contender for our best budget electric bikes guide, but it's a strong contender as one of the best ebikes for newbies.

Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT review: Price and availability

The Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT is available for $2,300 from Trek directly, including Trek retail stores. You can also find it in a lot of local independent bike shops. The cost of the bike includes professional assembly, which is a huge plus. I recently tried to build an ebike at home and ran into several issues, despite working confidently on traditional bikes. 

For U.S. customers, all Trek bikes, electric or not, come with Trek Care , which covers the frame and main mechanical components for life. The battery, on the other hand, has a two-year warranty . While it's not meant to be removed by customers, Trek shops can easily switch it out if/when it does need replacing. 

Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT review: Design

A red Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT ebike with blue skies behind it.

The Trek Verve+ 1 LT comes in three sizes, small, medium and large — I tested the latter —  and three colors: Galatic Grey, Viper Red, and Baja Yellow. All variations feature the same low-step-style frame with no upper crossbar to contend with. Built out of Trek's Alpha Gold Aluminum, the bike weighs in at a manageable 44 pounds. 

A close-up photo of the grippy handlebars on the Trek Verve+ 1 LT.

With handlebars that are positioned high and wide, riders are seated upright rather than hunched over, like on a performance bike. The rubber grips on the handlebars are also super comfortable with lots of real estate to accommodate even the largest hands. The brake levers are also long and easy to grip. 

The main computer control on the left handle bar of the Trek Verve+ 1 LT.

You'll find the e-bike controls on the inside of the left handlebar. A long press on the on/off switch gets things going, while the plus and minus buttons allow you to jump between no e-assist and the three powered settings.

The green LEDs indicate how much charge the battery has left while the red LEDs represent the e-assist setting. It's a lot more basic than the displays on the Ride1Up Turris or the RadPower RadCity 5 Plus , but it gets the job done. 

The gear adjuster on the Trek Verve+ 1 LT showing its eight different speeds.

In addition to three e-assist settings, the bike has eight geared speeds which are adjusted using two levers located on the inside of the right handlebar. A small window facing riders indicates the current gear via an orange strip.

The seat on the Trek Verve+ 1 LT ebike.

The bike seat features a quick-release lever making it easy to adjust the height for different riders on the fly. Trek equipped the Verve+ 1 LT with the wide and comfy Bontrager Boulevard Bike Saddle, which is a nice upgrade over the saddles that come on most entry-level models. 

The rear hub on the Verve+ 1 LT ebike.

Power comes from the 250W, 40Nm motor tucked in the rear wheel hub. The eight-speed drivetrain uses all high-quality Shimano components, including the shifter and derailleurs. The disc brakes, meanwhile are made by Tektro. 

A close-up view of the tires and wheels on the Trek Verve+ 1 ebike.

The tires are a hybrid affair, making them suitable for pavement and trail riding. I was easily able to cruise over loose gravel and dirt on the bike without issue. And while they offer basic puncture protection, they are far from the Kevlar-reinforced tires I default to on my own bikes.

The wide, grippy pedals on the Trek Verve+ 1 LT.

Last but not least, the Trek Verve+ 1 LT comes with wide, grippy Bontrager City pedals which provide decent traction even in wet weather (I mostly rode around wearing sneakers or hiking boots). 

Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT review: Riding experience

A red Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT ebike with blue skies behind it.

In addition to riding the Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT across the world's longest floating bridge and up the steepest hill in Seattle , Washington, I also used it to get around town while running errands and taking midday breaks. Here's how it faired.

The bike is extremely easy to get on and off of, and feels stable while riding, even at fast speeds. First-time riders should start with e-assist in the lowest setting before cranking it up, as the bike accelerates quickly at maximum power.

However, there is a slight delay between when you start to pedal and when the motor kicks in, about two pedal strokes, which is worth keeping in mind when taking on big hills. 

Trek Verve+ 1 electric bike on a steep hill.

The max e-assisted speed is 20 mph, which you can easily surpass with some help from gravity. Going up hills is fairly painless, especially in the bike's easiest gear and with maximum e-assist. However, unlike some of its competitors, the bike lacks a throttle, so you can't get a free ride.

Both the seat and handlebars are plenty comfortable. I rode on numerous occasions in inclement weather and had no issues gripping the bike or keeping my feet on the pedals. The tires also provide ample traction on wet pavement.

It's worth noting that there's no suspension, so, expect to feel some bumps and knocks as you cruise around. That said, I wouldn't call it a stiff ride. Also, lowering your tire pressure a bit below the recommended PSI will give you a little more cushion, if needed.

The brakes are very responsive, so resist gripping them too tightly your first several times stopping or you may send yourself into orbit. That said, the stopping power is fantastic, even under wet conditions. 

Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT review: Battery life and performance

The downshaft on the Trek Verve+ 1 LT ebike.

The bike's battery is integrated into the downtube on the frame, making it pretty damn difficult for someone to steal. The downside is that you can't carry an extra. However, Trek sells a battery range extender for $499, which more than doubles the total advertised distance to 75 miles — the advertised range without it is 35 miles. The extender does add an extra 3.5 pounds of weight, though. 

Without the extender and in everyday riding conditions, versus the ideal conditions these batteries are tested in, I got closer to 16 miles of range while using maximum e-assist (and climbing 1,400 ft). While riding more conservatively, switching between the three power settings as needed, I was able to squeeze out closer to 25 miles, again with ~1000 ft climbed. 

The battery charge port of the Trek Verve+ 1 LT.

I do reckon that on flat terrain using only the lowest e-assist setting, I could make it to 35 miles on a single charge, but where's the fun in that? Fortunately, as long as your destination has a power outlet and you're sticking around for a bit, I found the battery can be charged up fully in just over two hours.

The bike charges via a covered port at the base of the downtube and the included charger has plenty of length for hard-to-reach outlets. 

Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT review: Accessories

An MIK compatible bag on the rear rack of the Trek Verve+ 1 LT ebike.

While accessories like front and rear rain/mudguards, lights and even a MIK-system compatible rear cargo rack come standard on the Trek Verve+ 1 LT, you'll need to shell out extra coin for goodies like the detachable bike bag shown above, the mountable battery extender (obviously) or a water bottle holder. Fortunately, the Verve+ 1 LT is covered in mounting points to accommodate all sorts of accessories, allowing you to customize it to your heart's content. 

Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT review: The competition

The Rad Power RadCity 5 Plus is the best ebike for most people and a solid low-step-style alternative to the Trek Verve+ 1 LT. It features a more powerful motor, greater range and a lower price in a similar package. However, it is 20 pounds heavier with one less gear.

The Ride1Up Turris is about $1,000 less than the Trek and also offers a comparable range with a more powerful motor. However, it too is about 10 pounds heavier. 

If you want a low-step bike with maximum range, consider the incredibly named NIU BQi-C3 Pro . It's good for an advertised 90-mile distance but also weighs a hefty 70.5 pounds and doesn't have any gears, which might be a deal-breaker if you live somewhere with lots of hills.

The Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT is the most approachable and well-equipped beginner-friendly ebike I've encountered. Professional assembly is included in the price of the bike, as is a lifetime warranty on the major parts, except the battery, which has a two-year warranty. 

Easy to ride and appropriate for folks of all statures, the built-in motor has three speeds; the lowest setting is great for getting used to the electric-assisted lifestyle. However, the motor is nothing short of zippy with maximum power. 

Battery life could be better, but for trips under 20 miles, the Trek Verve+ 1 Lowstep LT is a great option. The eight-speed drivetrain makes it appropriate for even the hilliest terrain. Plus, the battery recharges in about two hours and an accessory range extender can be picked up, doubling your distance.

Ultimately, if I were a man of many dollars, this is the ebike I'd buy for my parents to enjoy because it's safe, built from quality components and a lot of fun to ride. I also dig Trek's incredibly helpful customer service. However, it's hard to ignore its price, which is much higher than some of our other favorite bikes, including those with specs and features that meet or exceed what Trek offers.
