Liv Rove E+ Review – $2.8k

The Liv Rove E+ is a hardtail cross country hybrid with women-specific saddle and grips. Approachable mid-step frame, four sizes, one color: satin light green. It’s the most affordable electric bike model from Liv, is sold through dealers, and comes with a two-year warranty plus lifetime frame. Efficient and quiet SyncDrive motor is a collaboration between Giant and Yamaha. It offers up to 50 newton meters of torque and measures wheel speed, cadence, pedal torque, acceleration, and slop to deliver smooth natural operation. Optional smartphone app for tuning. Great battery placement with ability to charge on or off the frame. Fast 3 Amp charger is compact and light weight. SR Suntour 63mm travel suspension fork with basic preload adjustment, tubeless-ready gravel tires with a wide range of PSI options. Smooth hydraulic disc brakes. Minimalist button pad LED display is durable and easy to use, but limited on readouts. Bike does not come with a kickstand, but the dealer might include for free. No lights, fenders, or rear rack stock but plenty of mounting options to add post-purchase. Limited 100 RPM cadence support from motor and no shift detection.
