The Aventon Paces versus Electra Townie

The below table summarizes some key attributes of the two Aventon Pace models (Pace 350 and Pace 500) versus another E-Bike called the Electra Townie, typically found at Trek stores. Trek's e-bikes have traditionally started at price points of $2400, and dramatically increase from there. However more recently, they came out with their "entry level" priced e-bike, based on their traditional pedal forward design in the Electra category called the "Townie".



This was likely to attempt to compete with affordable and high quality built e-bikes coming from companies such as Aventon in the past 4 years. Aventon's e-bikes that are really not 'entry level' quality, but rather just very affordably priced, high quality and super comfortable riding e-bikes. Over the past year, we have seen an increasing number of our e-bike shoppers coming to our store, that frequently tried the Townie before hand, but found it to be rather weakly powered (only 250 watts).



They also found the Townie did not have a throttle, and did not have a display that showed speed, battery voltage, or other typical parameters that are useful to have on an e-bike. Some found the pedals to be too far forward on the Townie, and the Townie to be too heavy in the rear due to battery and motor placement, leaving the e-bike unbalanced from front to back. (cumbersome when loading an e-bike on to the back of a vehicle bike rack)



So when they finally get a chance try out either of the Aventon Pace models, they are often blown away by the comfort, the features, the styling and aesthetics, the build quality, and also the great power assist that can easily climb any hills. "Giggles", "smiles", and even "happy yelps" (like 'WahWho") have been known to ensue immediately upon riding one of the two Pace models.
