Everything you need to know about today's E-Bikes

 Style: Today, folding bikes come in many different designs for every different purpose. People like them for their overall ease-of-use and practicality, that allows you to take them almost anywhere. Whether you are looking for a sleek and retro-inspired folding bike or something more contemporary with the latest innovative features, there is a model out there to suit your style and bring out your personality. 

Options: There are a variety of features to consider when making the right E bike decision. In this review I will cover the ones that will have the most impact on your enjoyment. A boost mode in a little-known feature that actually assists you when walking the bike. There are a variety of reasons you may want or need to “walk” your bike; ran out of juice on way to your vehicle, a flat tire, a steep hill you would rather not pedal up, or even just strolling past local shops with your bike.

Tire size: Since we are talking about folding electric bikes, we have to decide wheel size and weight capacity, and ease of getting in the saddle. It is ironic that I need to get more exercise to help strengthen my knees, and the fact that I am 6’6” and 275 so I need a well-built machine, which narrows my particular choices. The choices involve 3 basic wheel sizes; 16”, 20”, 26”. I am going to gloss over the smallest size because that is in the scooter or toy category, and we are discussing commuting, exercise, and exploration machines. There are some excellent choices in the 20” realm and being closer to the ground they are considerably easier to mount. With fat 4” wide tires there is a greater weight capacity, plus they look cool too!
