But this does not mean you have to settle for POS ebike that you can't ride around with a sound mind on, knowing it won't break down on you and knowing you can you can expect lots of miles on it in the future.
Some shops will flat out tell you that you need to buy the "highest quality" or most "high end" bike you can get or not buy anything at all. We disagree and we're not bike snobs and that's one of the many reasons customers come to our store vs other stores around the Bay Area- we offer a wide selection of bikes in various price points and quality ranges all over the spectrum.
For new riders of an electric bike, a price point ebike may be the right bike to get to start with. Also, if the bike is going to be ridden and parked in a high-theft area, you'd only be doing the thief a great favor by parking your "high quality" bike on the street only for it to get stolen.
We think, a price-point bike can be some thing worth your money and time if you just don't need a high performance ebike to do the job. For this, there's a long list of price oriented ebikes that pack a lot of punch. Here's some of our favorites:
A2B KUO+ Electric Folding Bike - this little folding ebike packs a lot of punch for just $1699.00. A true Swiss Army knife of the ebike world. It folds. It climbs. It goes. It saves you time and money.
A2B Ferber Ebike - this standard town commuter is priced at $2299, features a 350W motor and scoots around town or paths reliably and efficiently.
iZIP PEAK - The latest iZIP Peak is a competent on and off road ebike with a mid-drive motor and a long lasting LI battery for just $3,000.
iZIP ZUMA - Rear hub motor and cruiser comfort for just $2550. 500Watts of power with both a throttle and pedal assist mode.
BLIX KOMFORT - this 3 speed town cruiser is designed in Sweden and looks sweet. It's priced great too at $1990.
Magnum Ui5 - a step thru model bike with big battery and lots of features for just $1800.
These are just some of price point ebikes we sell here at Motostrano. Our stores are stocked to the ceiling with the largest variety of ebikes in California. Come see for your self.
