This bike is also an awesome fit for anyone looking for a smoother ride. In this blog, we will break down everything you need to know about electric city bikes and what you should be looking for if you’re going to buy one.
WHAT IS AN ELECTRIC BIKE?
An electric bicycle is a motorized bicycle with an integrated electric motor used to assist propulsion. It’s a simple yet clever design and is getting tons of attention lately from West Los Angeles riders. The motor allows cyclists to travel greater distances without exerting extra energy, especially when riding up and down hills.
One of the biggest explanations for the popularity of E-bikes is their lower carbon footprint. Since the early 2000s, electric bikes have been mass produced but have only started to boom recently. Additionally, e-bikes are especially helpful to those who have difficulty pedaling with regular bikes or commute to work or school.
HOW DO ELECTRIC CITY BIKES DIFFER FROM OTHER E-BIKES?
E-bikes in general share the same concept: a motor that assists pedaling. The design, size, and use cases are all factors that will vary depending on what kind of e-bike you buy. The city commuter e-bike is the champion of urban riding. The biggest differences between this bike and other e-bikes is its battery life, motor power, and design.
The city bike is designed for longer rides to and from places in a big city such as work or school. The longer range will allow you to fully enjoy your riding experience without worrying about battery life and will ensure that you get to your destination with ease.
For instance, RETROSPEC® Beaumont city e-bike comes with two different motor selections. The 350w/36v motor supports up to 28 miles in range while the 500w/48v motor sustains up to 37 miles in range. The difference isn’t major, but the mileage is definitely noticeable.
WHAT ARE THE PROS OF CITY E-BIKES?
Perhaps the biggest pro on this list for city e-bikes and e-bikes in general is that they are one of the best modes of transportation you can use to reduce your carbon footprint. Using a city e-bike is an amazing idea if your place of work or school is around five miles or less away from your house. Enjoy your ride by taking an e-bike a mile away to your favorite coffee shop while still reducing your carbon footprint.
Another pro of owning an e-bike is the money you'll save from commuting, gas, etc. Not to mention, the less you use your car, the less you’ll have to pay for maintenance and repairs. Plus, those miles add up quickly, and eliminating those small trips will ensure you maintain your car for a lot longer.
