I post a message in electric bikes section, no reply yet.
I want a commuter for a hilly trip of 15 km each way daily. 30 km a day. My priority is a folding bike not an electric one but I think buying or adding later an electric motor to help me climb the hills and when retıurning home wiped out on some days. I will favour pedalling but having an option of not being limited to it when I want to is nice. I only consider Brompton Nano or Bionx PL350 motors.
Anyway as my priority is the bike itself I try to choose one between Brompton (neat size folded, cute thing overall I do not know why), BF Tikit (I know non motorizable but I love its quick fold anyway), Dahon Mu P8 (I am not sure anything about this bike, if it will be too bulky when folded, does it have accessories, is it enjoyable, it just seems plain and unattractive to me in pictures), GoBike (seemingly an out of business Canadian), and Birdy (folded, not as small as Brompton but close, also I do not favour Aluminum, but everything else seems fantastic with this bike, including that I can add Bionx to it later).
What would you suggest for a hilly area, 30 km daily commuter for me (I am 43 yrs and can get in shape in a couple of weeks/months, let it be months )
