    Buy E-Bike - which one?

    I`m looking for a good E-Bike, but I don't know which E-Bike I should buy.
    Which E-Bike do you have bought? :)

    The first decision is whether to buy a factory turn-key ebike, or to buy a kit and add it to an existing bicycle. Factory ebikes have fewer selections in their frames and sizes, and having a bike that fits you well is important. Also, a factory bike will be more expensive, plus it will not have as much power or range as the kit options.

    However, kits can be awkward and time-consuming to install, so...if you find a factory ebike you like, it works well for your commute, and it fits your budget? Go ahead and get what works for you.

    Once you decide between turn-key or kit, the next question is..."what will you do with it"?

    Off road downhiller on the mountain trails? Street commuter to blend in with car traffic? Weekend exercise tool?

    Do you have steep and frequent hills? Is your city flat? What top speed do you want? What is your budget?


      I admit I'm sold to Luna, but I can't find anything that would match these bikes, it's a no brainer if you don't really care about building it yourself:

      I especially like the Giant Luna BBSHD....


        Sebz is spot on. Theres nothing available to match or beat it. Lucre and Biketrix completely rape the buyers with the BS stories about exclusivity of products. Luna can have an issue here or there, but as long as they are building bikes, there will be no better prebuilts at their price point.


          Electric bicycles look very similar to the standard bicycles you are familiar with. E-bikes feature slick designs which hide the electrical motor, so they have all the aesthetics of a bicycle whilst making it simpler. The electric component is supposed to improve your bike riding experience, not always remove from the physical facets of biking. For instance, if you're pedaling uphill or there's a strong breeze, an electric bicycle makes those hindrances more manageable. You will also enjoy modern technological features like LED lights which electricity on from the dark so that you do not need to worry about portable lighting for evening or night rides. Arguably easier to ride than electrical scooters or boards, e-bikes can adapt substantial weight, making them a wonderful match for most people.
