Need to buy 7 Mountain bikes

Since my kids are growing older and we need to find some family activities, was thinking about buying mountains bikes for the wife and kids. For everyone to have fun I was thinking about eMTB for everyone to follow till the end of the day and everyone can follow and out the effort they want.

I fell on this website https://m.made-in-china.com/product/...996890815.html
and was wondering if any of you every tried those and if they are good entry bikes for beginners.

If you are aware of something else better quality and a reasonable price, let me know!

Thanks in advance for the help and suggestions.

That website looks bad from the get go and then the title of the bike starts with fashion high quality that is a good sign it is a do not buy. Go down to your local e-bike shop and see what they have and what they would recommend. You will get support with the bike and hopefully something of higher quality. If the bike is of quality it will not need to mention it in the title after fashion and it will also likely not have fashion in the title unless that is the name of the bike.

If you are looking at something of quality look for Bosch, Brose, Shimano, Fazua or something from Specialized, they have good support behind them and are easy to get service in a lot of places for the most part.

I would not go anywhere near buying that bike. For one thing, the build specs are vague and do not match the pictures, and both are very low end.

Sounds like you need to make a trip to a bike shop.

Decent, reliable eBikes of any variety are not cheap.

Decent full suspension MTBs (even non-electric) are not cheap.

Any decent full suspension eMTB is going to cost several times more than those bikes you are looking at.

I was looking at the BMC Trailfox AMP before the pandemic. Saw it for $3500 on Facebook marketplace and wrote to the guy but he had sold it 10 minutes priori. Now they go for $7000+

If you have more than one local e-bike shop, try the one that you would trust the most, and that seems to have good service. You might find a web site with reviews of the shop and the products. I noticed the site you found says minimum 10 pieces.

Minimum order amount is 10 bikes. Off brand suspension. No mention of frame size that I could see. The bike could be too large for some of your kids.
