New to the forum and new to ebikes - Hello!
I'm 50 years old, 180lbs, not in bad shape, deciding what ebike to buy. Some years ago I broke all the bones in the arch of my foot. Ideally I shouldn't put too much pressure on it, light pedalling is okay.
I'm looking to buy a high-end ebike with the greatest range possible.
Have it narrowed down to Stromer or Pedego and would welcome any other suggestions.
I like Stromer because of the look and their reputation, but it's pedal assist only. That's concerning due to the problem with my foot.
I need a bike that can give me decent range on level terrain with average to no pedalling and able to get me up a relatively steep hill with very easy pedalling. The Stromer boost mode I don't think is enough in itself, and I don't mind peddling if the resistance isn't too great on my foot
Pedego is another good option. I like the look of the ST1 more than the Interceptor II. But the Pedego has the throttle and from what I've read it should go up a fairly steep hill on throttle only?
While I'm pedaling on flat terrain and smooth bike trails using a little throttle constantly but at low speeds can I get an afternoon riding on a charge?
In freewheeling mode which bike has the least resistance?
