On our recent California coast trip, my wife and I rented some Pedego e-bikes in Avila Beach. My wife was initially frustrated because she didn't understand the operation of the electronic throttle, and the bikes are a little heavier than conventional bikes. Once she figured it out, she loved it! I really enjoyed the ride too, mainly because we didn't have to huff and puff up hills. From what I've read, Pedego bikes have a pretty good reputation, but aren't the only game in town. What are your guys' experiences with e-bikes, and which brand or model would you recommend?
