As you mentioned previously, Biktrix Ultra.what other bikes would you consider that are similar to this?
I would add the following:
- FLX Blade
- Hipower cycles: Scout and Titan.
- Do not blindly fall for the full-suspension allure for light off-roading or paved surfaces (you say that you are not intending to do hardcore mountain biking).
Wide tires with the right kind of frame and geometry gives you plenty of comfort.
Whether it is Frey or Biktrix or Hi-Powercycles, plus sized tire + ultra motor would be sufficient.
- Lastly, your budget also dictates what you may end up with. A full suspension bike with Bafang Ultra motor and super high-end components could cost you upwards of $10K. Here is an example: https://www.lamerecycles.com/ultrabeast
