David's World Cycle & the Trek Powerfly 5 - Perfect Combo

Fun, fun, fun! Exploration. Relaxation.
As recent 'Retirees' to Central Florida, my wife & I had brought our old, 'analog' Treks with us. But, we hadn't taken into account our old-analog bodies couldn't quite keep-up with your biking goals. Then we tried the 'Powerfully 5'. Wow! We're now riding more, further, farther & loving it! The Powerfully 5 'pedal assist' motor gives you as much assistance or more importantly - as little as you want. Unlike 'Throttle Assist' bikes, you're still a participant in the pedaling process. Plus, the 'pedal hub' motor drive feels engineered more smartly than the rear-hub drive design used by many electric bike companies. We have yet to 'kill the battery' on a ride. The best part of the purchase though was dealing with David's World Cycle (in Tavares). Top notch staff! And great customer follow-up! Every six months our Powerfly 5's go in for maintenance - and typically a few new accessories!
