I've two 250w ebikes with throttles on them. Me and the wife use them all the while, for distances of no more than 12 miles leisure riding. They're great for folks that have problems pedalling, for whatever reason, and they're handy for hill starts to help you get going. Here's a video. :)
Thanks for asking. I've been here all the time though. Just reading mostly. :)
Yes, the £300 Cyclotricity Carrera, that I bought off 'Dave' here in March 2017 :oops: , is still going strong. That's my daughter riding it in the video above, from last May. I must give it a good look over at some...
I've 3 different inexpensive ebikes. Two of them were bought, used from members here. They all do 15.5 mph, and they're all good fun. For what you plan to do, you should maybe consider picking a used one up from this forum, if there's anything suitable for sale. :)
That's not true I'm afraid. You can drive whilst wearing a helmet, headphones or earpieces, use a hands free bluetooth set to hold a conversation, blast out your music choice, and even be deaf whilst driving. All without penalty or lawful impediment. :)
@mermeo29 What's up with your legs? How long are they? :) My 'not very tall' 8 year old grandson has no problem riding my ebike with a suspension seatpost fitted.
Springs compress with weight on them, so there's not much more of a height raise over a regular seatpost there. Generally...
