I need one ebike that works for several purposes (transportation, hauling work, and gravel roads as well as paved roads). Interested in a electric assist cargo mtn bike presently. I’m extra tall and not as fit as I used to be so need large frame, suspension, lots of gearing, comfort, and affordability. And lots of power assist. Not asking for too much is it lol.
Ive been dubious about the quality of inexpensive kits and daunted by the price of quality kits. I can compromise on a mid-range mid-quality kit and perhaps build my own battery to save money. But I don’t know which kit. I know a strong rear wheel is important for what I want to do. I like to do wildcrafting so will be out in the woods a lot. Up logging roads and dirt tracks. Any suggestions are appreciated.
The ebike will also be alternative transportation to my school bus. I cannot tow a car (and I’d rather not own a car) as sometimes I’m towing a cargo trailer with solar energy equipment, kayak, tools, generator, etc. The ebike will hopefully hide inside the cargo trailer away from prying eyes. Bike theft is prevalent unfortunately.
I wish I could try out some kits. Do bike shops let people ride them? Maybe I can rent a cargo ebike for a weekend somewhere?
