Verve+ might be a little more upright, I haven't compared. In general these are all on the upright side of the spectrum. I looked into different tires for my C380 and it's really tough to add tires that are much wider without changing the wheels. Wider lets you run a little lower PSI for more comfort, that being the main draw for me. You could also add a suspension seatpost to any of them for a much more comfortable ride.Great insight, thank you. Looking at Verve+ to get more upright ride and handlebar adjustability due to some lower back and shoulder issues (that might get worse). I think Vlado wouldn‘t ride as upright???? Thinking that a more aggressive tire might be in my future if better traction is required. Do you think Trek have a better LBS network? Am I missing anything?
The 6a charger isn't available in the USWhile I'm fan of low maintenance cycling with belt drive high on wish list, down side is Enviolo hub adds couple extra kgs which maybe an issue if you need to lift bike on regular basis.
If you buy Trek see if you can upgrade charger from 2A to 4A. For overnite charging 2A is fine, its lunch stop topups where 4A shine. There is also a 6A charger which you could buy later to submit 2A.
Johnny Watts 27.5x2.35 tired are good upgrade for gravel riding. Forum has whole hread devoted to them.
As for entry level MT200 they are reliable and OK if you don't do lot of hill work. I've whole section on upgrading to M6xxx Deore or M7xxx SLX see my Xroad 2 625WH thread in Moustache section. Looking at web photos don't think smart purion will interfer with M7100 brake levers like old purion did.
Highly recommend SLX M7100 2pots with 180mm rotors front and rear.
