Why Would You Want an E-Bike Over a Normal Bike?

Why would you want to get an e-bike over a normal pedal bike?  While the answer to that question is very personal to each individual based on his or her wants and needs, we’re going to look at a few reasons in this article.

The interesting part of this is the fact that you are looking to learn more about e-bikes and the potential of making the investment.  Therefore, one can only assume that you’re interested in a better solution to the normal pedal bike – and good for you!  E-bikes are not only a ton of fun but have a bunch of useful and convenient features that make them superior to a normal pedal bike.

Below are some of the most common reasons that people invest in an e-bike and forgo the normal pedal bike for these upgraded and technologically advanced versions.

Transportation Cost-Savings

Is your drive to work fairly short but long enough to be quite the haul on a normal pedal bike?  You’ve probably considered other forms of transportation after looking at your monthly transportation expenses coming from vehicle care and upkeep, gasoline, and the added mileage which is deflating and depreciating your car’s value faster than a bike tire with a hole in it.

If you were to take (as an example) a 10-15 mile trip to the office each morning and swap it for an e-bike, think of all the savings you could accrue – not to mention skipping the frustration of sitting in bumper to bumper traffic.  This is something most would not be able to accomplish with a normal pedal bike.  Additionally, you could use an e-bike for quick trips around town to get a few groceries, stop at a convenience store, or even pop in for a quick visit with friends and family.

Enhance Your Fitness and Improve Your Health

Are you thinking about starting a workout program and getting more physically active?  Good for you!  Or maybe you’re an avid exerciser looking to take your fitness to the next level?  Regardless, an e-bike has several benefits over a normal pedal bike.  Now, you may have a raised eyebrow as many would assume the fact that a normal pedal bike doesn’t have a motor that it would be more beneficial.  However, that in itself is a huge advantage to using an e-bike for your workouts.

When you fatigue on a normal pedal bike, many tend to throw in the towel.  They may hop off of the bike and rest for a little before going back home.  With an e-bike, when you fatigue you can simply utilize the motor on the bike to keep going and then transition back to pedaling once you recover.  For those just starting a fitness program, an e-bike is going to quickly become your best friend as the power provided from the motor allows you to stay in motion and enjoy the process of riding a bike much more so than if you fatigue quickly and would have to stop and take a breather.

Honestly, it’s easy to feel defeated when this happens, and many may quit altogether.  With an e-bike, you can stay consistent and enjoy the process for longer – ultimately allowing you the ability to push yourself at the pace of your own fitness level.  You can even ride with others who may be in better physical condition by pedaling until you fatigue and then switch over to the motor to keep up with your buddies while you recover.

Double Your Fun! 

With an e-bike, you can take just about any scenario and double your fun when compared to a normal pedal bike.  Where a normal pedal bike would take you to complete exhaustion and you can’t go any further, you have the ability with an e-bike to keep pushing on thanks to the technology of the added motor.

Hit the trails, hit the town, hit the open road, find a world without limitations generally attached to a normal pedal bike.  Break free from the ball and chain and go explore the world while also enjoying the cost-saving benefits.
