These are the best bikes I've found so far for my needs.
After reading many reviews, this one stands above the rest
A similar one +$ -Specs
Solid Competitor -Range
Could be good. Lightweight but small range. +$
On the cheap side
Haibike looks like they have a ton of options but Europe is pretty far from me.
I figure buying a used mountain bike and installing a mid drive motor would save money but could be trouble. Also, would I lose ground clearance if the mid drive motor isn't built into the frame?
The main problem is I can't test drive these and specs only tell you so much. I'm not going into Vancouver until the pandemic is over.
I really appreciate the help!
