I am in the market for my first ebike. I have a bad back and am interested in an upright cruiser style bicycle. I want a bike that will excel at hill climbing and riding into the wind (I live at the beach where the wind is always blowing). I am also eager to extend the range of my bike rides. I want to continue to be actively pedaling so having a throttle is not a must. I have test ridden a few bikes at the shops. A couple models in particular caught my eye. First was the Townie Go with the Bosch mid drive system. This bike felt more like riding a regular bicycle compared to most ebikes I have tried (I am referring to the responsiveness of the pedal assist system). Another bike that was fun to ride was the Elux Tahoe. The Tahoe is a fat tire cruiser style bike. The model I tried had front suspension forks which gave it a pretty cushy ride. I liked the Tahoe but it is really heavy and might be a pain in my back to mount and lug around. What do you guys think? Any feedback would be appreciated.
