I'm interested in opinions regarding my first ebike purchase. I'm a male senior citizen who is 6 feet tall and weighs 210 pounds. The majority of my riding will be on asphalt roads and trails in the community. There are several hills I would need to climb in order to reach the level areas, but the hills are not exceptionally steep or long. On occasion I would take rides of around eight to ten miles. I've more or less narrowed down my search to the Aventon Pace 350 and the Ride UP1 Core 5. I was hoping to buy an ebike from a local shop in Northern Virginia where I live, but all the bike shops carry bikes that start at $1500 and skyrocket up from there.
