If the last few years have been a time of monumental change for Mountain Bikes, then the same can be said for electric bikes as well! Electric bicycles—also known as e-bikes—have hit the bike scene and are making a major impression. While electric bicycles look like normal two-wheelers, they have a built-in electric motor for propulsion, mainly they kick in as you pedal.
The trick to making your electric bike a fitness tool is to use the motor just enough to keep going. Cycle away and when you hit a steep hill, change gear and select higher power levels which will give you that extra oomph to get up the hill.
Why buy an Electric Bicycle?
The great combination of cruising and cycling that electric bikes provide will generally save you a lot of effort (and some sweat), so you can burn some calories but prevent your ride from becoming a full-blown workout. Electric bicycles can aid you up steep inclines and help you cover ground faster. Normal fatigue worries are not such of a problem with an electric bike, because you always have power when you need it. As with buying a normal bike, getting an electric bicycle requires the right fit.
Come into the Bigpeaks bike store and we will suggest a model that will fit as well as ideally suit your particular needs.
