I am looking to get my first E-Bike by the end of this year so that is why I joined. I want your opinions on what is a good first bike. not really looking to spend more than 2000 but the less the better.(feel free to post anything in price thought I'd like to see all the options) I saw a few online for 300-500 new but I supposed those are all garbage correct? It will be primarily used for a 7 mile commute mostly flat but little up hills. Would like it to look like a regular bike and the higher top speed the better. Also I want to be able to get on and ride it the full 7 miles without having to pedal if that is possible. If not I guess i'll be doing some light pedaling. I think that is it for now. All help is greatly appreciated
I was just doing a little more research and see that no stock bike really goes over 20mph. I would like to be able to go at least 30mph, so any suggestions on a cheap e-bike like one from izip.com or ezip.com that can be upgraded to go faster would be greatly appreciated.
