Is An E-Bike Actually Worth It?


MOTORS DON’T come cheap. An entry level e-bike can run $500 or more, and that number rises quickly as you upgrade to stronger brakes, smoother shifters and a lighter frame. But despite this initial price hurdle, sales of battery-powered bicycles have tripled over the past three years, and the e-boom shows no signs of slowing down. So is owning one really worth it? Here’s what to consider before you take the motorized plunge.


The answer is Yes.

E-bikes are perfect commuting vehicles for young urbanites. By making distances seem shorter, headwinds less fierce and hills easier to climb, they lower the barrier to daily cycling. In a more than 800-person study conducted by University of Tennessee researchers, e-bike owners rode an average of 3.6 days per week. Those riding traditional bikes rode just 2.7 days per week. And despite what the critics say, e-bikes aren’t cheating. Sure, the motor makes you feel stronger. But it doesn’t do all the work for you. “Ninety-nine percent of the models available in the e-bike category are pedal-assisted, which means you have to be pedaling in order for the electric motor to add power,” said Justin Hoese, an e-bike rider and co-owner of Boulder Cycle Sport. “So you can use the pedal assist on the way to work, and then turn it off on the way home when you want a better workout.”

Now GaeaCycle introduce you some E-bikes.
