E-assist, xtracycle and advice
New here and am trying to find the best solution for our family. I am
trying to go carless as often as possible and love the idea of an
xtracycle with an e-assist. I have a 19 month old who has been riding
in her Safe-T-seat (http://www.ibertinc.com/
) on my my bike but we
need a change. My bike is super uncomfortable, does not fit me, and
is horrible on hills where we live (Austin, TX). So, we are thinking
about what to do. Getting a new bike and putting an xtracycle plus
e-assist is TONS of money and we don't know how fiscally responsible
it is to just plunge right in like that. So, we were contemplating
the eZip iTrailz (only $450) and seeing how I like the electric bike
before we go all the way. But the eZip isn't very comfortable for me
either, so I would need to replace the saddle and handlebars. Is
there an in between option? Like getting the Trek bike I want and
adding an e-assist. Once I like that, I would like to add the
xtracycle. Is this an option? Which e-assist would be best for this?
Is this the right forum to be asking?
Thanks and feel free to ask questions for more clarification.
