I'm thinking about buying an electric motor assisted bike for my commute. I want to be sure that the bike will last for years, though -- I don't want it to be like my electric lawn mower. I bought the mower -- used it a year, the battery stopped holding a charge, and I can not replace the battery. Now it is useless junk.
Are there electric bikes that use standard rechargeable batteries. Something that I know I can replace when I need to?
Does anybody have other advice about electric bikes?
