New Trek Electric Lineup

I just looked at the Trek Electric Bike lineup & it looks like they've drastically reduced the number of electric bikes they offer & it seems like they've removed the more sporty models. There are now three models, the cargo bike & a Men's & women's model with a front shock. Not a good development (from my perspective). It looks like they have significantly downsized their electric assist lineup.

IDK, maybe the market is too thin and a lot of other imports do better in that market niche.
so Finances focused on what sells better.. better returns ..

I think Trek and most big name bikes cost way to much, so not suprised that their over priced E-bike don't sale.

My Valencia+ was around $2300. Not too bad considering that the BionX kit by itself is $1700 or so. Mated to a good bike, 2300 isn't unreasonable.
