I'm looking for an electric bike that will be able to support 280 lbs. One bike that I have looked at recommended no more than 240. My other main question is can I ride an electric bike like a regular bike? I currently have no bike (got stolen,) but I like the option of using electricity in the future ( I use to ride to school, and it's uphill.) I want the bike for exercise purposes, as I will be toting my son in a bike trailer behind me. I'm looking mainly for a two in one bike. I won't be using it mainly for its electric purposes mainly, but I'd rather not have two seperate bikes. I've been looking at the Ezip Trailz for 499 on Sears, and Best Buy, as well as an E-tour quest for 719.99 at sears. The Ezips recommended limit is 240, and the latter doesn't say anything. I tried posting in another section but was told that I should try here. I just don't want to get either and it wasn't strong enough to go uphill, I'd just settle for a regular bike if that's the case. I was reading someones review on youtube, and the have the ezip trailz and weighs 240, and says they would have to get off and push it to go up the hill. I messaged them, and I am still waiting for the answer. Thanks in advance.
