  • Thanks for watching! There's a lot of info and bike recommendations in this video, and I'm sure I didn't cover it all. Feel free to comment with the e-bikes you love and some buying advice you found very helpful.

  • Here in NYC it is a free-for-all. You can ride anywhere, any side walk or street the wrong way. You don’t have to stop at lights and stop signs. You can even ride gas scooters without a license plate . You can ride Dirt bikes and ATV all the way down Queens blvd , right past lazy cop cars without incident. It is the best!

  • They should make ebikes batteries that can charge quickly and give you the most distance

  • This video sucks 😞

  • The presenter did a great job. Lots of info. Good video!

  • How about ebikes for people who are 350 + in weight

  • I really want to get one, but I'm an old man and I think I'll look ridiculous.

  • Overall good info . For EMtb category bikes, those are performance bikes meant for thrashing around trails, climbing hills and going downhill much better than all of the e bikes you mentioned previously. They get ridiculously expensive, even in the entry level. But you have peace of mind knowing that the parts are more reliable, serviceable and tunable. Most other electric bikes only allow you to make it “go faster”, but have relatively limited options in improving the handling.

    I considered most of the e-bikes in your video, but ultimately I went with a “me” powered mountain bike. After 8 months of riding, my fitness and bike handling skills have improved immensely.

    Hope you all find your future ride, soon. Happy trails. 😎👍

  • e-bike technology is improving ever single day, some amazing e-bike makers out there! Great info!

  • I will be getting my first one this year!.. 🚵

  • I love the idea of an E-bike, but I don’t see much benefit to them over a motorcycle. If I lived in a downtown urban location, maybe, but I live in the suburbs so I’d have to commute to the metro station more times than not, and then utilize it.

  • I want an ebike that rides most like a regular bike. When I'm not using the electric motor, I want pedaling to feel like a normal bike (without feeling any extra resistance) and I want to shift gears like a normal bike. I only want the e-boost for hills, or when I'm feeling particularly tired of pedaling. Do they make ebikes like that?

  • That was an excellent video! Thank you!

  • I recommend duel motor-duel battery with front & rear suspension, a motorcycle seat. It would be nice if a third battery could be added and charged while braking. The only 2 battery bike system I’ve seen run power independently. The battery that powers front wheel, will not power rear and vice versa. If they could mount a couple of solar panels that will charge a spare battery that could be swapped with the main battery or either drive battery. The panels could be mounted as saddle bags ant flip up when in use. Rotate the bike for best angle or receive max sunlight. While at the beach or lake fishing, a battery could be charging.

    My main concern is getting somewhere and not having enough battery to get back. I had a person go ballistic when I plugged my bike charger in their garage outlet. She actually closed down that prayer group session at the end of that days meeting. I guess they didn’t understand it’s a low draw trickle charger, or because she was not around to ask before I plugged in. I ride uphill and hope I can get back. I know have 2 duplicate batteries.

    Riding at night: lights including turn signals & brake like is a nice option. I currently use 2 rechargeable halogen flashlights, multiple reflectors, reflecting vest, led lights on my helmet an red flashing led’s on each ear hole. I’ve also have installed a train horn and a back up air horn to let cars exiting a mall or drive way … here I am!

    If that is no enough. All these onions require 12v dc. It would be nice if a manufacture could add a port get 12V DC.

  • Why doesn't anybody mention speed I'm looking for one I can rude to work

  • Samebike YY26 I love it! and < $1400

  • Buying a house is daunting… buying an ebike not so much…

  • What happens with the grid goes down? Exactly! You're screwed. E-bikes are for the mentally challenged.

  • Any trip over 20 miles total should be reconcidered. If stranded 10 miles is serious I've done it

  • Which r great for a senior?

  • Can someone recommend a foldable e-bike that can be bought and shipped in Europe for under $1,000? They seam to have completely different brands/manufactureres. I want a Lectrix XP lite but they are non-existent in Europe.

  • Keep showing the bikes mate while talking. He he he.

  • Jesus is God & He loves you

    Jesus will soon be seen by all men, women, and children in the clouds. Jesus is returning now! Believe and be saved.

    32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

    1 Peter 3:18 (The word “quicken” means “to make alive”)

    For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

    Romans 10:9

    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    Acts 4:12

    Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    Ephesians 2:8-9

    8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

    9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    Repent of your sins or suffer the consequences. Lord Jesus died in our places personally to take the death punishment that sin deserves and then resurrected by the power of God. Believe this and sincerely repent of your sins each time you sin and you will have eternal life and nothing to fear. Fail to repent and you will end up in the Lake of Fire.
