Under 900$, Very unreliable ebikes , they are disqualified.
There is also the DIY ebike category , but this one is treated as a separated entity since there are 2k projects out there or 10k home made ebikes. Also since the brands are mostly unknown , exception being the motors which mostly are from Bafang, it is hard to track what is popular and what is not.
DIY group certainly is growing fast and has many members !
Some upcoming brands that could become popular: Coleen(Cat. 1), Harley-Davidson Serial 1(cat. 2) Zen (Cat. 3).
It is worth noting that the 5 most popular brands , analyzed based on the nr. of
EBR thread messages are:
1) Specialized (20.4k)- a lot of specialized riders there ! Fyi : Trek is @5.messages.
2) Rad Power (13.8k) - that's rad...
3) Juiced (13.3k)- many got juiced here(poor cs) but neverthless volume speaks...
4)Stromer (10.2k)- Great , almost flawless design, although their CS and occasional ebike issue are not on par.
It is worth noting that this brand +Greyp+ Coleen are the only ones that supply Gps 3g/4g anti theft on their ebikes
5) Lectric (8.6k) - Big surprise here, this
brand is on a run.
This chart also , very closely , reflects the top sellers in Us. Who wants to bet ?
Congrats to all the brands and to Specialized, their great range of ebikes(road/mtb./commuter) , smart marketing, dealers, warranty, great tech. , keeps them on top.
W/o a doubt that's a lot of ebike brands (50+) and a lot of them have diff. electric/motor components , so unlike cars of american or asian origin , this parts are not interchangeable.
* Please read the manual and pay Xtreme caution riding this 40+mph ebikes !! U should have at least 3+years of ebike/moto riding b4 getting 1 of those.
The post serves a few personal purposes , i also work in the financial market and as a data nerd i enjoy a good mental workout .
Have a nice weekend !
You work in the financial market ? I hope you pay more attention to numbers / exercise mentally at work, compared with the latest version of your version of whatever you are trying to prove since the last edit of the first pist.
Please, can you sourse me an orbea rise ltd or Specialized levo sl s works as a " category 2 " buyer? Simply so I can fit your belief that I should have more than 1 ebike.
Most ebike owners have 1 or 2 ebikes from one of the 3 categories (and for everyone price is the most imp. Factor) .
So it is a gen. classificatiom based on price , which is pretty obvious and a common sense logic. I don't know anybody who chooses a product without looking at the price first.
I think it's a pretty clear post but you could start a thread post going into all sorts of data variables and factors.
Sorry to have quoted him so many times, but threads where the op goes back and edits posts after people have commented can appear defamatory to people who respond .
