Buying a City Electric Bike

There are so many e-bike options out there that choosing one of them can be hard. In any case, these are the most important things you need to consider before buying a city electric bike.

Battery Size

This is a no-brainer. The further your workplace is, the bigger battery you’ll need. Luckily, Eridefox has numerous long-range city electric bikes, including the Fiido L3, a compact ride capable of hauling you up to 125 miles (200km). 

Motor Power

If your commute involves ascents or gradients, you might want a bike that has a nominal output of 500W or more. If not, even a 250W motor is sufficient. Eridefox has bikes with motor power varying from 250W to 1000W to cater to all kinds of riders.

Multi Gears

If you’ll be using your ride on flat roads or you’re tight on budget, you can go for a single-speed electric bike that will not only be inexpensive to buy but also to maintain. But if you encounter hills, you’ll be better off with a multi-speed electric bike.

Portability

If you plan to use the subway during your commute or you live upstairs or you need to store your bike behind your desk at work, you might want to get a lightweight e-bike with a foldable frame. Eridefox has many compact commuters that weigh as little as 17kg and fold in seconds.

Suspension 

If your commute involves mild off-roading or you encounter a jagged-off road, you might consider buying a city e-bike with a front suspension fork, at least. The front fork will reduce the bumps and potholes to make your ride comfortable.

In case you’re interested, Eridefox features an assorted collection of city e-bikes from the most popular brands of the e-bike industry in all price ranges.
