Hi I'm dave from the UK, I have been mountain biking since about 1987 and have had an ebike for nearly a year now, an orbea rise m20. I bought the bike to help rehabilitate after a hip replacement.
A number of factors were involved in my choice, weight was very important as I have to transport the bike on the roof of the car and be able to lift it over obstacles. The Orbea rise was the right choice for me with enough power and range to get back out there, and also, get my fitness back, which is achievable on an ebike. Lastly a warning ⚠️ for Orbea rise owners DO NOT do the update for the motor on the e-tube app , I did and my motor had to go back to the importers!

Welcome to EBR Dave. You will notice many others from the UK on here ... especially on the big daily rides thread. ( Search "Our rides in words, pictures, maps" ) and also many who use their eBikes to recover from medical issues like surgery.
