Abbott Rev is a Speedy Commuter Ebike

My latest review is the Abbott Rev, a commuter electric bike form the brand Retrospec.

It sells for $1,799 and is a high quality ebike from my perspective. It comes in green or gray. The ebike comes as a Class 2 with top speed of 20mph but can be unlocked to Class 3 to reach 28mph. Instructions for unlocking are included.
