Cruised 24 miles today from Upper Preston to Snoqualmie Falls using 73% of the battery.
OK here are a few pictures of the new Specialized Turbo. Its a screaming great commuter bike.
Use Caution! When in Turbo mode you can accelerate to 27 mph quick.
Specialized Turbo controls – the SRAM X0 10 speed DoubleTap controller and the red + and – mode control for the pedal assist. There are four modes – turbo, eco, off, and regenerate. The first time you bump the button into regenerate and instead of getting a boost you find yourself pedaling a heavy bike and powering a generator its a surprise.
I think the Specialized Turbo is a good looking bike. It’s a 29er. The tires have Kevlar and are slicks.
I have hit the 27 mph limit on flat stretches, its amazing how easy it is to go fast. The limit is to keep the bike a legal bike and not a motor vehicle with tabs and insurance, etc. You can pedal on and exceed the 27 mph limit, the motor won’t help though.
I have Cannondale Easy-Rider Recumbent. Update: I sold this bike.
