Afraid if I get the bike I want now, the technology will change and I'll be stuck with a $2,000+ electric bike. I am looking for a step-through bike and got really interested in the Giant Freedom Twist DX W which does 75 miles per charge. Should I be concerned about buying this bike now, fearing other companies are in the works to improve on that bike? The only thing I don't like about it (besides high price) is having the two batteries in a "saddlebag" position over the back wheel rather than almost undetectable under the seat. Any suggestions for a newbie, please? I have a 150cc scooter that I love but I don't like the gas, yearly insurance and license fees, taking tests, etc.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am a 67-year-young gal and need the exercise rather than just sitting on a scooter.
