"As a lifetime cyclist who developed a heart arrhythmia at age 55, I thought my days of going on great rides was over. Boy, was I wrong! I made myself an e-bike, and now I’m back to doing great rides in the mountains, fun group rides with friends, and getting to meetings, appointments, and errands all over town by bike. The e-bike has brought me back the lifestyle I was missing. This E-Bike guide is a great compendium of all of the information you need to be an educated e-bike consumer and owner.”
