Juiced Cross Current X or Ride1Up LMTD for $1700?

Considering the two. Juiced has a much larger battery, brake motor cutoffs, and a Bafang motor, though the Ride1Up has a 15nm more torque, integrated battery, and is 11 pounds lighter (though the rear rack and fenders probably add back 3-4 pounds). The Ride 1 Up also has a little bit wider tires, though I don't plan to go off-road with the bike so not sure how much that really matters. I test drove some actual fat tire bikes, and disliked how less "agile" they felt in turning. I have a hunch on pavement these guys will feel similar.

Anything else I'm missing?

Also open to other suggestions if you think I can do better elsewhere!

I've grown to like the integrated batteries. They're a cleaner look, less like an after thought. Fenders and a rack pretty high on my list as well.

The "little bit wider tires" are a desirable feature. The 2.4-2.8" widths are a great compromise between the ponderous 4" widths, and the 2" "ride like a roller skate on a brick road" types. 2.4-2.8" enable you to run much less pressure in your tires (think <30psi) offering a far superior ride, pretty decent handling (on most surfaces), making them a great hybrid tire size. Pretty popular size for the mountain bike crowd with knobby tires, many now coming standard on the nicer bikes with street (quiet) tread designs.
