Choosing an electronic bike
1. CONSIDER YOUR NEEDS
Electric bikes are designed for different people and different purposes. If comfort is key, then a step-through frame may be best. Maybe hill climbing is crucial, a middle motor system or high torque hub motor may be best. If riding long distances is important, then a battery of 400 watt-hours or more is needed.
TEST RIDE SEVERAL BIKES IF YOU CAN
Perhaps the most important part of buying an electric bike is test riding. Trying an electric bike allows you to forget your research and the specifications you looked up. Now it is all about ‘Do I love this bike?’. Is It comfortable? If yes, then start asking a few other questions:
“Does it have a good battery”
“Will it climb hills?”
‘”Does it have the quality and functionality I would like?”
Also you may want a bike that you can easily transport so questions like
“Is the bike foldable?”
“The bike is heavy or lightweight?”
“The frame is big enough?”
Today electric bikes are reliable, powerful, useful, and fun to use. An electric bike can be life changing. Buying an electric bike is a big investment With a warranty, you can rest assured that your investment is worth it. A two year warranty on parts, motor and battery is to be expected from most electric bike manufacturers. So make sure you get a good warranty.
There are many choices, lots of opinions, The best strategy is to put your trust in your intuition. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If a bike is from a brand you’ve never heard of and can’t find information on it, it is probably best to stay clear. One of the best ways to check out a bike is to read online reviews from buyers.
Electric bikes are not toys, they are transportation. The quality of the bicycle itself, is extremely important. More important if you plan on riding it day in and day out.
Which electric bike to choose?
This is a difficult question given the large number of models available on the market and the number of criteria to take into account. There are bikes for all tastes and uses at a range of prices. Do not choose your first bike, based on its price or its look!. This is because the best electric-assisted bicycle in the world may not be suitable for the use you want to make of it. The design or even the riding position, seat comfort may not be right for you. You need to know what you want to use it for. If traveling to work from the train is important. Then you want a lightweight, fold-able small bike. Not a electronic mountain bike just because it looks cool.

Will you use it every day or occasionally?
Will you travel by train, car, bus or plane? if so it needs to be portable
Do you plan to use it over long distances? If this is the case you need a good motor and battery.
Do you plan to do it on the road only? Then you will need a ordinary design with a comfortable seat etc. Not a racing bike or mountain bike design.
Would you like to be able to use it in steep, even mountainous passages?

The ideal city electronic bike

Se when peddling you are riding with a straight back. It is also easy to get onto the seat which makes it very practical when wearing a skirt or suit. By sitting straight you get good visibility. The bike is designed to allow for accessories like luggage racks, baskets, better suspensions, mirrors, chain guards, mudguards plus other add ons.
It is a good bike to use for short trips. For longer trips, it is a tiring and can be uncomfortable riding in the same position.
The electric multipurpose bike
The multi-purpose bike is designed for the city, plus sports and leisure outings on roads and paths. It offers a more ergonomic saddle that is harder than the straight bike. It has a more powerful braking system. The position on this bike is tilted, making it more aerodynamic. Some models can be fitted with accessories such as luggage racks, saddlebags, mirrors and anti-theft devices. It is more suitable for hills than the city bike.

The mountain bike (mountain bike) or electric trekking bike

It is suitable for riders who enjoy mountain biking but want assistance at times. It gives a big boost on steep slopes and on forest roads. Riding becomes a real pleasure for those who love mountain biking but don’t want or don’t have the strength to cope for long periods and over difficult terrain.
The electric racing bike
The electric racing bike is a bike designed for long distances, mountains, and difficult passes.
