I'm seriously considering commuter cycling as a way to help get back into and stay in shape. I live in a pretty hilly area and think that if this plan is to be successful, I may be better off getting an electric assist bicycle for the commute. I'm currently not much of a rider, but the Internets have assured me that my 5 mile commute is within the realm of the reasonable for a bicycle commute. Of course the Internets don't know what bad shape I'm in right now
I really don't know where to start. I see a lot of different ebikes out there on the internet and the price range seems to vary incredibly, from $350 to $2k and beyond. Really, I'm just looking for some opinions on what makes and models to focus on. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated!
