How to Select an E-Bike

Posted by eBikeJoy! eBikes on


Whenever you have to purchase something, there are many factors that you need to take into consideration. Price, specifications, appearance, user reviews, quality, and color are frequently some of them. When it comes to selecting an e-bike or electric bicycle, you should keep a few things in mind in order to get the best one available for your needs and budget.

Here are some tips to make this process simpler and more straightforward:

  • What type of bike do your need? E-bikes are categorized as commuter, mountain, folding, sport, all-purpose, high performance, and beach cruiser. Choose your e-bike depending on your requirements: whether you want it to ride in the city, climb up hills, or just need one for a comfortable ride. There is an electric bicycle suited to everybody’s needs and demands so investigate all the available categories to find the best one for you.    
  • Check its weight and battery placement. You might already have an e-bike in mind; a model you saw online or read a number of positive reviews about it. If you’re buying online, read its specifications in detail and particularly note its weight. This is because heavier bikes are not suitable for everyday use particularly for running city errands. They are also more difficult to store and transport. Check where the battery pack is mounted as well. It should neither be placed too high nor too low because it affects balance. Proper battery placement and weight allows you to enjoy a smoother ride.
  • Understand the bike’s power. For some beginner e-bikers, this might not be of major concern but for advanced or experienced bikers, it sure is. Get an e-bike with the correct power you will need. Is the terrain where you typically ride the e-bike hilly or relatively flat? If you’re in a hillier area you might need one with more power. You also need to get a motor with more power if you’re heavy. Check the recommend rider weight for the model. Investigate this feature before you buy your e-bike to certain that you get one that fulfills your unique requirements.
  • Look for some added features. Check if your chosen bike offers headlights, a luggage rack, a bottle holder, or leather handlebars. These are often welcome additions to make your e-bike more comfortable and enjoyable.
Once you have done your homework and make a mental note of all the above-mentioned points, you’ll have the added confidence that your e-bike selection will be a perfect fit for your needs!

  • Give an idea of the differences between E-bikes and non E-bikes – Like try to put in or on your car, or have some on e lay it on you – and you have to get out from under it a 10 lb bike or a 60 or 70 lb bike
