The estimated battery range is miles depending on the terrain and your pedaling rate. Hello, I live in a small apartment and was wondering what type of folder you would recommend for me. I would like to take the bike to the store, post office, around town to shop, and to pay bills. I would eventually like to travel up to 6 miles but for right now 3 would do.
There are a number of mounds or hills and one steep one that I avoid by jumping in the car when I have an errand to run over there. Do you think battery powered electric bikes would be more suitable.
It would make climbing a mound possible without having to demount and walk. I would like to sit closer to the ground in case of a fall or injury, maybe out of fear, due to the weakened leg muscles.

Hi, I highly recommend you to buy an e-bike in this case. Its assistance mode will help you deal with steep inclines a lot easier, especially when you have health issues. I can climb hills effortlessly with most capable e-bikes.

Which e-bike would you recommend for someone who wants to ride, and only use the battery to assist on slopes? Please recommend one that is fairly light. My current one weighs almost 25 lbs. Have you guys tried their Stow E Way? That would definitely be in my top 5! Terrible customer service. These are cheep China products. I have a Tern Vektron now. We do not care about speed but we did realize that the smaller wheel base ar difficult to peddle if we run out of battery, do you have any suggestions.
