Best All-Around Ebike:

Specialized Turbo Como Electric Bike

The Como is comfortable, practical, affordable, fast, and . . . FUN!

“The Como opens up the world of long-distance rides to those that don’t ride long distances. Keep the comfort but go the distance. Now you don’t have to compromise between being built for comfort and built for speed, the Como is built for both. With a look that is as integrated as its ride, the Como blurs the lines of the human/machine interface.” ~Patrick Sheedy, ERIK’S Rochester, MN

Models: 3.0, 4.0, 5.0

It doesn’t feel like you’re riding anything with a “motor”… it just feels like you are all of a sudden superpowered. I found myself riding daily. Longer, harder, so many more miles. This bike is a game changer!!” ~Christie Kennelly, ERIK’S Sioux Falls, SD

Right out of the box commuter. If these would have been around 10 years ago I never would have bought my car. They’re fun, they’re efficient, and they’re great for the environment.~Dylan Gawne, ERIK’S Manager, Eden Prairie, MN
