Electric bikes, commonly referred to as "E-bikes" are bicycles that have an electric motor. They are
becoming more and more popular each day throughout the world. Find out all about these types of
bikes to find out what it can offer you.

There are many kinds of Electric Bicycles and when choosing one, you need to figure out which one best
suit your needs. For instance, if you want an E-bike for the same purposes as a regular bike, you should
go with one that has a small motor. On the other hand, if you will be using it like a moped, you should
get one with a larger motor, as it has more power. Just be aware that some countries have certain laws
as to how fast one can ride an E-bike.

There are three main kinds of e-bikes: E-bikes with only pedal assist, E-bikes with both pedal assist and
on-demand, and E-bikes with only on-demand.

An E-bike with only pedal assist falls into two categories: pedelecs and s-pedelecs. Pedelec e-bikes have
motor assist that typically only allows the bike to reach about 25 kilometers and hour. They're typically
classified as bicycles. S-pedelecs are usually classified as motorcycles or mopeds. This is because they
can get up to a speed of about 45 kilometers an hour.

E-bikes that have both pedal-assist and power-on-demand are unique in that they have both a throttle
and pedal-assist sensors. This bike is great for those who like both a motor and pedal help. The eZee
Torq is one of the most common types of E-bikes.

The last kind of E-bike is the one with power-on-demand only. These bikes contain a motor that makes
the bike work only when power is demanded, hence, the name. A throttle found on the hand grip is
used to activate the motor. Typically, the motors on these bikes are stronger than those found on the
pedelec.

There are many advantages to using an e-bike as a form of transportation. For starters, it is better to use
this bike over a car if you are environmentally-friendly. You are not releasing any CO-2, as you would be
driving a car.

It is easier to navigate through traffic when riding an e-bike. If you have ever been in a traffic jam, you
know how frustrating it can be to waste time on waiting for the cars to begin moving. With an e-bike,
you can get around the cars in a traffic jam and get to your destination much quicker.

You will not have to workout everyday if you use an e-bike as your form of transportation. If you go with
an e-bike that requires pedaling, you will be burning tons of calories each and every time you use it.

You now know much more about electric bikes and why they are so popular. There are clearly more
advantages to riding an e-bike than other forms of transportation. Use the information above to figure
out which one is best for you.
