    New/Bad biker

    Hi,

    I am probably the worse person you have ever seen on a bike. I look like I am going to fall over AND I love riding bikes. So last summer I found a bike I loved. I waited too long to buy it and they discontinued it. That is why I came here to the experts. I really want the Giant Revive. Since I am sooooo bad, I wanted to get the electric version. If anyone can tell me where I can find one that would really be great. But since you are the experts, I was hoping if I could not find the Giant Revive - can someone please recommend one that is close to it. I have a very bad back and the way the Revive sits is really good for me. The seat has a back rest and the handle bars tilt towards me. I feel like I am sitting in a chair which is terrific for me.

    I appreciate any help.

    Thanks so much,

    Hope

    Hi Hope,

    I own the latest, and unfortunately last, basic Giant Revive model and I LOVE it! Many of the dealers that sell the Revive have some of them on sale(I got mine that way) but I don't believe any of the electric ones were. You could always try to find a basic Revive and have a Bionx electric kit put on. I don't know where you live, but you need to ask around your locale and see who sells Giants and ask if they sell the Revive or can order one for you. Good Luck!

    Hi Hope, saxonrider's got a great suggestion in putting a Bionx electric kit on the basic bike if you can't find the model you'd like.
