Electric Original Equipent Manufacturers – Check Endless Sphere for user reviews.  Wow!  We’ve seen nothing short of a revolution in the e-bike market since Bicycle-Power’s inception in 2002.  For those seeking cutting edge, look for a mid-drive bike that you can run through the gears.  Also, there are many hub motor bikes that are practical and economical.  Another thing to consider is a system with a throttle or pedal sensor.
