Do electric bikes make sense in the city?
This story debates whether an ebike can truly replace a car. Some say yes, some say no. Perhaps the bike shown may not be the best city e bike, but I found it one of the very best handling fat bikes at this years Interbike outdoor demo. The placement of the battery was part of it, but mostly it just had superior frame geometry. It’s not a worth $500 bike.
However, for a city ride, perhaps the surface 604 model with regular tires would be a better choice.by
