Thinking about investing in an electric bike? From hydraulic rim brakes to rack-mounted battery units, Rebecca Miles is here to give you the verdict on the top 10 e-bikes on the market.
There are a number of female specific e-bikes on the market, as well as e-bikes with step through frames. Rebecca has also included a range of unisex bikes that make the grade, not to mention some futuristic looking creations!
Why choose an e-bike? They’re perfect if your commute is just that little bit too long or hilly, or if you’ve got to carry a lot when you ride. You do still need to put some of the work in, but the battery power will give you a bit of a boost.
They’re also great if you’re recuperating from injury, as they can reduce the exertion you need to make to get a bike going, leaving you free to cruise with ease, sail up hills, zoom to work or generally enjoy the pleasure that is riding a bike in the great outdoors.
