There are some newer tech ebikes that look great. Long range, speeds up to 28 mph, the only downside is they are spendy.

Look up Ridekick. Powered bike trailer also hauls cargo.

I bought my wife a Faulkner folding electric bike. My regular bike goes on the Fiamma rack and her bike folds up, stores in a zip up storage bag in the bed of the truck. She loves it. 20" wheels, step thru frame.

I have been doing a lot of reading on the e-bikes and just ordered 2 bikes from

https://www.electricbikecompany.com

they are sweet rides powerful motors and you can use 100% battery power and not pedal at all or pedal assists mode for longer distance.

Seems like a stand-up company with the best warranty in the biz. 5 years on the battery.

Cant wait to get it and I will be that guy zipping around the camp ground.

Update on how you like your ebikes?

I've been looking at a couple of lighter ones:
m-class by Ariel and Luna Cycle folding mini. They are both around $1600 so spendy. Luna bike around 38 lbs and m-class about 50 lbs.

Anyone else have feedback on lighter weight e-bikes?

Thanks,
Dave

I suspect they get products free, so there's rarely a negative review, and I don't always agree with them, but they're a real world test report.

Having the battery removable to lessen weight while loading, as well as replaceable would be a big deal. It also makes it a target for thieves, so taking it off would be a good idea.
E-bikes are a practical solution for those of us who can't haul a scooter, and they're the rage, so many companies will come and go. I'll wait until it sorts itself out a year.

I'm not sure what type of E-biking you're looking to do, but check out https://www.embn.com/ . These guys are hardcore mountain bikers and they're primarily talking about high end mountain E-bikes, all north of $5000. The bikes they test are in the fore front of pedal assisted E-bikes, not Chinese crap. I'm not ready for an E-bike yet, but I can see myself on one when I'm in my 70's. The technology should be sorted out by then and range will be well over 100 miles.

I bought a Specialized Turbo Levo mountain bike. Amazing bit of kit, about a 30 mile range. All pedal assist with variable boost settings. The most fun bike I’ve ever owned. I bought a 2018 model at a significant discount but it was still pricey at $3.8k. The new models have 30% more range.

Pay attention to your states laws. Many regulate where you can ride ebikes and most have strong restrictions on non-pedal assist ebikes. Even pedal assist bikes are generally prohibited from natural mountain bike single track trails and all BLM and US parks won’t allow them on trails where mountain bikes are allowed. That limits you to paved trails, gravel roads and campgrounds.

Hopefully this will change as pedal assist bikes become more prevalent. CA and Canada have much better laws as does EU.

we have two Term S10 bike
one is silver the other is black
removal battery with 100+ km of daily range and fits nicely in the AS while travelling

  • Bosch Active Line Plus electric drivetrain for more torque and smoother acceleration
  • Updated frame design, with a reclining battery for a lower center of gravity and better ride
  • Integrated Atlas Rack works seamlessly with Thule Yepp Maxi and Nexxt Maxi child seats—no adapters needed
  • Resizes in seconds to fit riders 147 – 195 cm (4’10” – 6’5”) so a single bike can be shared by the family
  • Fits easily on buses, subways and taxis for electric multi-modal commuting
  • Stores under a desk for convenient theft protection; no need to bring a heavy lock

You would never be able to tell my pedal assist bike is assisted. Never had a problem riding it anywhere. With the power off it’s a regular bike.

Bought my e-bike last summer. It's a RadCity. I also have a picture of the carrier I use in my van. The RadCity can also be transported with this carrier. The carrier is a Saris brand and fits in vans, SUV's, or pick up trucks.
