I am looking to buy my first eBike (really it will be my first bike purchase ever). I am looking to get an eBike for everyday commuting (3.5 miles, not especially hilly, basically 100 ft vertical downhill to the valley and 100 ft vertical back up). I would also like to be able to put my kids in a trailer, or in a baby seat, or a trailer bike, or some combination thereof. I want to be able to share it with my wife and strongly prefer the upright style of riding, so I am looking for a step-thru. I had really been set on the RadCity, but once my wife agreed to get a bike I figured I should actually look around at other models. I have also looked at IZIP E3 Simi and Electra Townie Go! 7D, but they don't look to have as many features as the others at that price point. I was wanting to stay under $1600, but I am really intrigued by the Ariel C Class and have seen most people choose that when putting them head to head. I am a bike novice so looking for something with easy maintenance. Let me know if you think I should go with RadCity or Ariel C Class, or maybe some other bike I haven't even mentioned. Thanks!
