It is no secret that pedelecs are must have items at the moment. Little wonder than that the choice is also increasing. In the meantime, it is possible to have almost every type of bike with a motor.
Attractive and reliable eBike models are not only available in many price ranges, but also in different versions. eBike step-through versions are just as popular as more agile eBike trekking models with eBike trapezoidal / men’s frame.
The first question you should ask yourself: How will you use your eBike for? And what for? More for leisure, to boost mobility or as a daily companion for the journey to work?
Of course, you can ride a city pedelec for longer rides. If these rides involve cycle touring with panniers for several days, you will inevitably come up against some limits. Conversely, a well sprung and stable trekking eBike with a large eBike battery may be a good purchase option, as this can be used for short distances.
Road approval for an eBike is only mandatory for S-Pedelecs. However, eBike insurance against theft is advisable for all models. This insurance protection may be included in your home insurance policy.
In order to provide you with more guidance for making your choice, we would like to look at the most common variants and explain what exactly you should be looking out for.
Furthermore, we will answer the question, why you should buy your eBike from a specialist retailer.
