Populo Scout Video Review - $1.7k Urban Electric Bike, Bafang Max Drive

https://electricbikereview.com/populo/scout/ The Populo Scout is a relatively affordable, surprisingly powerful eight-speed electric bike with a comprehensive HUD and front suspension that feels like a great fit for urban commuting, it also comes in two frame sizes, 49cm and 54cm to accommodate a wide range of rider heights. Extremely accurate torque sensors and quiet 350-watt mid-drive motor allows for a 27-mile real-world range and 20-mph top assisted speed, making riding the Scout an enjoyable experience. mid-frame battery fits nicely into the downtube and keeps weight relatively low and center, can be removed in a matter of seconds, has a power button on top to quickly check level and a USB port to charge accessories while riding or on the go. While the Scout performed well overall, there were some issues with the tightness of the stem and poor finish with the loose grip and missing screw, basic derailleur, grips, and fenders.
