Can anyone tell me why are these two separate products? What are the differences?

I really like the appearance and the apparent value of these bikes.

(No math formulas/grids or stories about running up a hill faster than bikes please!)

Thanks!

Edit: I did find one difference: tire size

Oh, now I see. I was looking all the components, and not the measurements.
Thanks!

By size it's:
Street
City Wave
City

Thanks for the video. So, three bikes, two frames sizes. I am 6' but a 22" frame feels too big for me.

It is a beautiful bike, not obviously electric, and where I ride, stealth is of utmost importance, otherwise here in Colorado, on bike paths, I'll be illegal all the time.

The best values I've found in what I need are the Evo line from E-motion, and Volton Alation.

PowerMe, I read your other post where you said you have trouble getting your feet to the ground. maybe you should keep looking for a bike that fits better?

In my case it looks like I would have to go with the step-through design, the Wave, if I bought from Easy Motion.

There are a lot of Evo bikes in the Easy Motion line, so you wouldn't have to purchase a step-thru design. The City also comes in a regular high top bar style.

Yes, I was looking at the City with diamond frame, but that's where the 22 inch frame comes in ... that size feels too high to me.

I'm learning a little more everyday ... I think I'm going to look in the under/ around $2000 range some more, although these really are beautiful bikes!

I'm retired. I only ride for fun.
They need more of a cruiser bike in their line ... something us older folks will ride. I'll tell you there's a lot of us baby boomers around ... a big market being missed by Easy Motion. (they are a European company. I guess people there ride more for need; I'm just looking for fun!)

Edit: what I'm trying to say is comfort, stability, able to put feet on the ground, is more important to me (and I think of a lot of older folks) than "efficiency" (like tall bikes), if that makes sense...

I think of the Evo Eco Lite, Street, City Wave and City editions as their comfort/stability models. Upright riding position, comfy, well-appointed. Ability to put feet on ground is purely a function of your inseam length and the height of the frame and where you position the seat, etc. There's nothing special about that other than knowing what size frame you need and what size tires. 26" tires for me are fine, 24" tires would be good. 700c is too large.

I've already ordered my bike and am awaiting its arrival. I'm getting the Street. :)

Good luck with your search!

Thanks for the help! I just got bitten by this bug a couple weeks ago ..the only ebike I've ridden is the IZIP Zuma. I'm learning a lot from people like you in the forums. Don't forget to come back here and post your experiences after you're a seasoned rider!

You'll be surprised how comfortable they ride, especially the Evo City. It comes with a adjustable stem and the handlebar almost feels like a cruiser (in upright position).
Easy Motion Evo are one of the stealthiest bikes out there. The headset is thinner than Neo series and blends in beautifully. See if you can test ride some of these.
