Stores in Toronto Area selling Folding E-bikes???
Total newbie looking to buy 2 new (or good used) ebikes. I want them to be folding bikes with around 20-24 inch wheels. I am trying to keep the size down as I am planning on bringing them in our RV for trips and the smaller they fold the better.
I have been trying to read up on batteries. I am thinking I would like to go Lithium Ion as it is lighter and I think I heard in addition to being more expensive they last A LOT longer? I really don't know much about it.
These bikes need to comfortably carry around 200lb passengers. I want the type that goes on battery power only, or you can pedal assist in addition to being able to just pedal and go without using the battery.
I would like to get at least a 3 speed gearing as when using pedal power only 1 speed is inadequate.
I am really hoping to get these and spend no more than $1000. Cdn each. I am happy to order online if it is from a reputable site that ships from Canada and I do not have to pay duty and international brokerage fees.
One last thing I will mention is like my signature I have 2 folders already, but from what I have read, converting them is very expensive although the hubby is good with cars and fixing things he doesn't know anything much about bikes.
