Smart's ebike Smart
This week on BikeRadar we're profiling electric bikes (e-bikes). We'll give you the full run down of what they are, how they work and different types, how to buy one, where they fit within the law, along with a number of electric bike reviews and the latest e-bike news.
Electric bikes are one of the fastest growing sectors of the two wheeled market. They're popular because they lower one of the main barriers to riding a bike, namely the effort required. Purists may not agree but we like seeing more people on two wheels, assisted or otherwise.
To that end, some of the hard core cyclists in the office have been trying out a number of different electric bikes, and most have been pleasantly surprised. You can read their reviews and blogs on BikeRadar this week.
