I know nuthin about E Bikes, but the wife wants one. Has a hurt hip right now and isn’t up to long walks. So…e bike it is. Any recommendations from you fellows? All I know is that it needs to be a woman’s type bike, with fat tires for use in gravel.

I called a bike shop in Waco about this sort of thing, and they had them but starting price was $4000. No way I’ll pay that. So, it seemed reasonable to ask folks that aren’t trying to sell me anything, and that have some use history.

We bought the ecotric bikes from Amazon, to bring along when we are on the road. Got the fat tire version, enjoying them so far, around $1000 when we got them

Saw a gal riding one of those up here this winter, she was going at a good rate and on the snowy roads looked like the way to go to me.

I rode one. Too dangerous for my my liking.

She has a hurt hip now and wants to ride an e-bike on gravel? I don't think so.

I bought this ebike almost 3 years ago. Bought it in winter from Walmart on clearance. Back them it was around 1200 and got it for like 500. This bike is around 700 now. We use the heck out of it and plan on getting a fat tire bike this winter.
