    What Criteria Should I use for Selecting a Ebike?

    I think so having tried out a older Rad City today at a local bike shop, the motor was more responsive than I suspected but no where the zip of the Magnum Metro but the fork wasn't that good on the rad maybe it wasn't adjusted properly I don't know

    What Criteria Should I use for Selecting a Ebike?

    Perhaps, I just tried a Magnum Metro and pre 2018 Rad City at a LBS and I liked the magnum more but to be fair the City was the 19" model which didn't really fit me that well.

    I see, that was one of my concerns with the Rad City Step Thru is it's motor ,that it will only be efficient at speed, with minimal stops. The thing is I'm not sure how often traffic is stop and go in the valley. So how often is to often?

    What Criteria Should I use for Selecting a Ebike?

    True, I think the Ariel Rider C-Class is one of the few that do have a throttle. What I'm concerned about is theRad Power Rad City Step Thru direct drive motor wold those inclines be too step for it?

    What Criteria Should I use for Selecting a Ebike?

    Good points, the sort of hills I need to work with are 3.2% average over 0.4 miles and 1.5% over 1.9 miles and the hills you worked with are longer than what I have to work with so should I still rule out the Rad?

    What Criteria Should I use for Selecting a Ebike?

    Thank you for your advice 6zfshdb, locally I can find Magnum and Bagibike brands in Salt Lake. Tool wise I don't have any specific to bikes in general yet but I do plan on getting a multi-tool, portable pump and patch kit. Which should be enough for adjusting handle bar angle and mechanical disc...

    What Criteria Should I use for Selecting a Ebike?

    Perhaps, I excluded it because of a lack of fenders and a rack. Unless, do you have both of those on your bike if so what brands did you use?

    What Criteria Should I use for Selecting a Ebike?

    Well the only ones that I can try out are the Magnum's and the Bagibikes the rest are all online or in the case of Rad Power the model I'd prefer isn't available in Salt Lake. So Feliz what should I do for those models that I can't test ride?

    What Criteria Should I use for Selecting a Ebike?

    Hi I'm planing to purchase an e-bike. My problem is that I am trying to figure out which aspects or features of an e-bike are most important and how to prioritize them. I live in Salt Lake City Utah, which is in a valley with relatively flat terrain in the north-south direction and foothills...

    Which Ebike should I save up for?

    Ok, so the salt lake valley is a gentile incline in until you reach the east or west sides then the incline increases as well as the hills. Where I live now, West Valley City, is relatively flat. However the writers group in Lehi has some steep inclines, but that's only once a week. I'll likely...

    Which Ebike should I save up for?

    Thank you for the suggestions, about support, I live in the salt lake valley in Utah. There are two independent ebike shops that I'm aware of. One of them will touch Rad's the other won't. Should that be a factor in my decision

    Which Ebike should I save up for?

    I'm saving up for a ebike and I've narrowed it down to 3 choices. They are: Prodecotech Stride 400 folding with torque sensor purchased from the site, Radcity step thru, and Izip E3 Brio step thru. Which one should I get, also if you're going to make a different suggestion it has to be be sub...
