What to Look for When Buying an E-Bike: A Brief Buyer’s Guide

Buying an electric bike instead of a traditional bike can have lots of advantages—mainly, it’s easier to use and you can go farther because you can just turn on the motor when you’re tired of pedaling. Before you buy an e-bike, do your homework to find the best option for you. Here’s a rundown of some of your top e-bike buying considerations.

  1. What type of e-bike you want. There are several types of e-bikes available. Here’s a partial list of the types of e-bikes:
  • Electric mountain bikes
  • Electric road/commuter bikes
  • Electric cargo bikes
  • Electric folding bikes
  • Other specialty electric bikes

Think about why you’re getting an e-bike. Is it for weekend fun? Riding to work? Mountain biking? Your answer can help determine what type of e-bike to get.

  1. Your budget. E-bikes come in a range of prices, from as low as $300 or $400 to top-of-the-line models that can reach more than $4,000. Your budget will likely guide your product selection. At Awesome Ebikes Online, our website has a price guide so you can focus on models within your price point. Just click the tab that says “Price.”
  2. The bike’s look and accessories. Just like with cars, there may be a look to certain e-bikes that appeal to you more than others. For instance, you like the basket on a bike, or you like the wider seat. Think about what would make your e-bike both comfortable and stylish for you as you make your buying decision. Remember that you can always customize your bike to add certain features you like for aesthetic or practical reasons. 
  3. Shipping costs when ordering online. If you order your e-bike online, find out what shipping costs are involved. At Awesome Ebikes Online, we don’t charge for shipping. This can offer some real cost savings!
