WHY BUY ELECTRIC BIKES?

Best Electric Bikes

Until recently, electric bicycles were rare oddities. Now, they're all over the place. While it's nice to have a wide range to choose from, some electric bikes can be disappointing. Costs have come down, but for the moment, we advise consumers to steer clear of cheap electric bicycles because they're not likely to fulfill expectations.

An electric bike's style and construction are two important factors to consider before making a purchase. You want a bike that will accommodate its motor without being too cumbersome; you want a bike that's stable in spite of its electronic components; you want a power pack that's well-integrated and doesn't spoil the look of the machine.

Performance

Electric bike performance is a complicated topic, and your choice will depend not just on obvious factors but also on exactly what you want the power for. Do you want an electric bike for the occasional assistance? Our detailed specs help you discern which electric bike would give you the performance you need.

Some consumers want only the most basic of ebike features, including lights, a cargo rack/basket, water bottle holder, etc. Others focus more heavily on safety features, such as brake type. Still others are concerned with convenience and portability. Follow electricbikesandscooter.com on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

X-Treme Scooters Men's Lithium Electric Powered Mountain Bike

When it comes to electric bike terminology, motor and battery capacities quoted in watts, amps, and volts can be difficult to translate into real world applications. Our ratings are designed to help potential buyers make sense of the terms.

The motor in the X-Treme Scooters Electric Mountain Bike is rated at 300 watts and is powered by seven individual 3.6-volt batteries (in a single sealed unit) that produce 56 amps. In real-world terms, the claim is that they will produce a top speed of 20 mph (through a seven-speed Shimano gear set) and a maximum distance of 15 to 20 miles. The manufacturer also says that maximum rider weight is 350 pounds. Those figures are reasonably impressive, but it's vital to understand that the manufacturer is not saying a 350 pound person can ride this bike for 25 miles at 20 mph. Each spec figure is a maximum; averages will be considerably lower. This isn't a matter of X-Treme Scooters massaging the figures. All electric bicycle makers state performance rates this way.

Power is controlled by a variable speed throttle that is mounted on the handlebar, much like on a motorcycle. Riders can set the bike to full electric power or power-assisted pedaling, or they can turn the electric system off completely when they want a bit of exercise.


The rightly popular sedona, and rubicon has a Shimano seven-speed gear set makes another appearance on the Electric Bike, which has a 350-watt motor powered by a 36-volt, 10-amp battery. Clearly not a sporting ebike, speed is nevertheless a maximum of 20 mph and range is 15 to 30 miles. This bike offers three drive modes: full electric power, pedal-assist, and pedal only. There's a handlebar throttle for speed control and a small control screen to quickly engage or disengage assisted pedaling. Five different levels of pedaling assist are available, depending on how energetic you are feeling! Full battery charge should be achieved in four to five hours.
