Hey folks. I'm looking to purchase my first e bike and would appreciate any info you experienced riders can provide to me. I've narrowed down my choices to the Ride1Up 700 series and the EG Geneva 500 based on some features important to me such as price, ride position, throttle, colors (no boring black or white), hydraulic brakes and bottle cage bosses. I live in Pennsylvania and ride mostly on our Rails to Trails which are predominantly flat with a slight grade and crushed limestone. I would however like to have the ability to hit the streets occasionally since I live in the beautiful Laurel Mountains. Most local bike shops carry Trek or Specialized so test driving several different models is not an option. I would still like to ride it as a normal bike, but with knee issues, look forward to the pedal assist and throttle when needed. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
