Top 10 Best Electric Bikes 2017
I remember when I was younger the thrill of riding an electric bike made adrenaline run through my veins. For me riding a bike was perhaps the coolest thing anyone could do. Normal bikes did not interest me as much electric and dirt bikes did. Even now I remember spending copious amounts of my time fantasizing about the breeze flowing through my hair, with my hands firmly gripping the handles, and my feet set on the pedals. I dreamt of going places, different cities, anywhere the road would take me on my bike. However, despite all this I never owned a bike myself. But I was still determined to make my dream of owning a bike a reality. Hence, I started saving money, so that I could purchase one for myself. It took years and a lot of hard work, but I finally saved enough to buy an electric bike.
I scoured the depths of the internet, read numerous customer reviews, but failed to reach a conclusion. The problem arose because there were innumerable choices to choose from, which made my decision so difficult. There are so many brands available in the market, and each brand has some positive and negative qualities. In addition to this, some brands had a myriad of enticing features, but were very expensive. However, after months of research I was able to narrow down my list to the following 10 best electric bikes. In the following paragraphs I will introduce you to some of these brands in detail, so that you can make wise decision for yourself. So, if you are an electric bike enthusiast or someone who is considering purchasing one in the near future then keep reading.
