Trek FX+ 2 Stagger Review - .5k

The Trek FX+ 2 high step and FX+ 2 Stagger are affordable, quiet, light weight, feature complete electric bicycles. Available in three frame sizes and three premium colors. Assembled and serviced by one of the largest bicycle networks in North America, it comes with a two year comprehensive warranty with lifetime frame warranty. The mid-step frame design is approachable, easy to step over, but also sturdy and light. They provided space to mount a bottle cage or other accessory on the downtube! Very clean integrated cables and wires. Excellent 9-speed drivetrain with wide 11-36 tooth cassette. Decent 160mm hydraulic disc brakes are easy to actuate. The 700x40c tires are efficient and include reflective sidewalls for safety. Integrated front and rear lights are positioned well. Plastic fenders keep you dry and clean. The rear rack offers great weight capacity at 25kg or 55lbs. Lower than average 250wh battery capacity and 250 watt motor pair nicely for an efficient ride, but aren’t as strong or long lasting. The torque and cadence sensor aren’t as instant as I was hoping for. The battery cannot easily be removed for storage and charging, so you need to park near a plug.
