Your New Second Car… Your Electric Bike!

Here is our December 2018 Electric Bike Comparison Chart of some of the top brands, but it is by no means exhaustive. The electric bike market has exploded with new brands in the last few years! One of the newer electric bikes, is the Fat Tire electric bike. With it’s wide tires, it has better traction on wet surfaces, but is very easy to ride. It’s the best of both worlds, and loads of fun to ride!

Whether you’re commuting, or schlepping groceries, why not make your second car an electric bike? It’s a lot more fun than driving, you get to notice the scenery and… if you want, you get some exercise to boot!  When you ride your new e-bike uphill to grab some groceries or kids, you find your town has “flattened out” and you notice things in a whole new light! Once you try it, you’ll never go back.
